Periodontia Reviews in Seattle


The entire experience could not have gone better. I did not use (nor did I need) any anti-anxiety drugs. Other than the initial novocaine shot, I felt nothing during the 1 hour/20 minute procedure and was listening to music and fully relaxed. I was slightly swollen, and somewhat bruised for several days after the procedure (and understand this may or may not happen -- depending on the patient). But it was not a big problem. I had two follow-up appointments that were about 10 minutes each. Each time the staff and Doctor were very personable and knowledgeable. Everyone seemed to truly enjoy their jobs. I would recommend Dr.
and her staff to anyone and plan on coming back next year for another procedure.
- Jane L.

As a five year patient of Dr.
I can attest to the many superior differences- some subtle others pronounced- in both the level of skill and diagnostic abilities he possesses as well as his patient management and ethical practices.
Before coming to Dr.
I had no regular fixed dental care and would rate my other dental experiences as poor to average only.
At the time I initially came to see Dr.
it was for emergency services as I had experienced the recent total failure of a crowned tooth- that had also had a root canal- and needed removal only two years after the completion of that work (previous to Dr.
) and a filling that had fallen out resulting in a severe infection that needed an urgent root canal. In just my initial appointment he cured all of these emergency conditions. The root canal was not only started but in fact completed that same day and the tooth prepared for a crown and the impression taken! He assumed total control and responsibility over my dire dental situation at that very moment and I have never looked back since. In the years since that first appointment my faith and admiration for him and his staff have only increased.
I would like to outline the many differences with Dr.
and his practice.
First of all Dr.
does not overschedule his patients. You will notice upon entering the office that the crowded waiting rooms typical at other dentists are not tolerated by Dr.
. If you have an appointment at 9:00 am for example if you are on time you will not wait for more than a couple minutes perhaps... if that. In fact often-times I never even make it into one of those waiting room chairs but instead am ushered into the exam chair in the back immediately upon entering his office. Within seconds Dr.
is scrubbed up and by my side ready to begin the procedure. From the time the procedure is started until it is finished he never leaves your side. He does not allow any distraction to come between himself and the work at hand and his focus his unwavering and absolute. He does not embrace a belief in multi- tasking, at least when it comes to his work, and the superlative results he produces bear this out. Every procedure he undertakes is not only painless and deftly executed but done in what I imagine to be the timeliest delivery humanly possible.
In short he does not waste time, either his own or the patients, and is the first dentist I have ever encountered who values his patients time as much as his own!
He is the only dentist I've had who has prepared an exhaustive long term treatment plan. This doesn't just amount to a few x-rays and a cursory visual exam. No, this is the most careful and thorough exam that you have ever imagined possible. The end all be all of dental exams. This an examination using every tool at Dr.
's disposal to assess the condition of every tooth in your jaw- both above and below the gumline. And not just the teeth but in fact the status of your entire mouth- skin, bones, muscles and tendons. All of this information is integrated then presented to you in a multi-media format with x-rays, still photo's, video and detailed written notes, etc. This is not just good marketing but instead indicates the absolutely serious intent and focus that Dr.
has for each and every patients dental health. He is make no mistake a "Dentist's Dentist".
has deep respect for the patient and what course of action they want to undertake. He will clearly state his best, most unbiased and objective opinion in regards to the patients dental health but ultimately will respect the wishes of the patient without pressure or disdain. I had what could best be described as a "complex" treatment plan but Dr.
worked with me very closely and allowed me leeway with the order and pace of treatment based on my financial requirements and level of comfort. A totally personalized and flexible plan that after only five years has solved virtually every last dental challenge I faced- both great and small. I have just entered the final phase of this plan which should be complete this year (aside from my cleanings) and that leaves me with the perfect dental health that was I believe unattainable with any other dentist.
is acutely aware of the range of dental fears in patients both irrational and well founded. He does everything possible to gently assuage those fears and never forces treatment on people or at a faster pace then they can handle. He has all the tools and techniques to create the most relaxing and pain-free experience possible.
It is evident to me because of Dr.
's seamless coordination in his hand/eye/mind skills (without any wasted or false moves) that great efficiency is achieved not only in regards time but minimally exposing the patient's
and jaw to unnecessary additional trauma. His highly developed fine motor skills and touch sensitivity result in his applying only the lightest touch required to get the job done. This is not merely an interesting aside but something I mention for one very important reason, post-procedural pain reduction. I have never felt it necessary to take any serious pain medication- aside from Ibuprofen- after any of the many invasive procedures that my dental plan has required. I attribute this solely to Dr.
's incredible hand skills.
It says on Dr.
's business card in typical understated fashion "Comprehensive Dentistry". And this is absolutely true!
His education and training have never left him at a loss in tackling any problem or procedure that has arisen. He has taken care of absolutely every need in my dental work in the same highly competant fashion. In the past I recall a dentist starting a procedure then being sent to another specialist then back again to the original dentist to finally wrap things up. Not to mention a lot of previous work done by other dentist that I believe failed prematurely. In fact at this point in my treatment plan Dr.
has performed virtually every type of procedure possible in his field. This includs many filings, crowns, root canals, extractions and now my implant. The porcelain crowns are truly works of art: color matched and sculpted to appear as real teeth, then perfectly fitted and adjusted to naturally conform to the complex 3-dimensional structure of each patients mouth and never (unlike previous dental work) did a temporary come off.
Never in any medical/dental clinical setting have I felt the sense of absolute trust and the peace of mind that comes with that as I have with Dr.
I cannot recommend Dr.
more highly as he represents the very embodiment of the perfect dentist and clinician.

When I arrived at the dental office of Dr.
Seattle Periodontists Provider Name Locked
and his team I was immediately greeted and ushered into a private room for a dental exam. Dr.
Seattle Periodontists Provider Name Locked
came in and introduced himself and the staff at hand. He told me what his recommendations were to help me as I had broken a front tooth off at the gum line. Molds were taken and I left the office with a temporary solution so I could smile and not feel self consious. It was a miracle as far as I was concerned. Next,

, one of his wonderful staff, and I went over the treatment plan that Dr.
Seattle Periodontists Provider Name Locked
had recommended and the costs. We set up all the appointments needed to get my treatment plan underway. On September 21 I came into the office for two dental implants on two front teeth. I was under a sedation medication that had me extremely sleepy so I required a designated driver to take me to the visit and bring me home. Dr

brought in a specialist that is part of his team to do the implants by the name of Dr.

My experience was quite fine and believe me I do not like going to the dentist. The person with whom I work is
Seattle Periodontists Provider Name Locked
who is a wonderful dental profressional. She is clearly Dr. M's right hand person as he consults with her on much of his work. She quite skilled, pleasant person, professional. The suggestions they have made have turned around the periodontal issues I was experiencing. They put a good deal of emphasis on home care, diet, etc. They are also excellent at handling insurance forms; getting them out in a timely way so that reimbursement comes back quickly. I pay more to see as he is not a preferred provider. And he is worth every penny.

I sustained serious nerve damage and now will never feel my lower lip nor my chin. DO NOT go to this doctor!!! When I came back and cried about my numbness, he mocked me and was harsh and uncaring. Worse surgeon ever and even worse bedside manner. Now, I cannot feel a kiss, I had to go to speech therapy to learn how to say any word with an "F" (think about how you say this letter, it helps to feel your lower lip), and have bitten a chunk out of my lower lip as I cannot feel it at all.
- laura D.

Her work is excellent and she has a excellent chair side manor. Her staff is the same way. Her office and her staff are immaculate. She is concerned about her patients' health and does not recommend anything that is not needed. She informs you how urgent or non-urgent a procedure is.
- Diane H.

OK. Gum grafts are not fun. However, the staff & Dr.
Seattle Periodontists Provider Name Locked
are so friendly that they really put me at ease. They were always very prompt. I never waited more than a minute. Then when they were actually doing the surgery they kept a conversation going, & that kind of distraction really helps!! If I showed any sign of stress he stopped work & offered more anesthetic as needed. I hardly needed any of the pain prescription as after the first couple of days the surgical sites didn't hurt much. My surgery didn't heal quite as quickly as expected, but there was no charge for an additional follow-up appointment.
