Finding a dental office that matches your needs as a patient can be a bit of a journey.  Please read on and discover what dental care in a small community can offer you.

Every week my staff and I run into our patients at the grocery store, at community events or school functions.  It is important to all of us to be able to look our patients in the eye and know we provided them skilled and honest dental treatment.  Our practice was started over 50 years ago by Dr. John Sarkie, the only other dentist to own the practice.  I joined the practice in 2003 and was thrilled to find myself surrounded by hard-working families like the kind I grew up with in Kalispell, Montana.  We are here to serve our community with more than just great dentistry.  We actively support a multitude of local groups such as the Snohomish Education Foundation, local high school booster clubs, the Imagine Children’s Museum and countless patient fundraisers.

Our mission is to provide a dental home focused on prevention, education and compassionate dental care.   We know from personal experience that life presents us all with daily battles and challenges that distract us from looking after our own health.  We do not make our patients feel guilty about the condition of their mouth.  We teach patients about the relationship of their mouth to the rest of their body.  We determine your risk for cavities, gum disease and oral cancer.  We teach you how to take care of your teeth and the teeth of your family.  We coach you to use techniques that work for you in caring for your mouth and body.  We provide honest answers and options for improving the function and appearance of your teeth.  We believe in preventive and restorative dental care based on sound science. We do our best to work within your budget and your dental benefits plan.  

Please call us if you think we’d be a good fit for your family.  We look forward to meeting you.
