Welcome to Our Practice!
*Please note - our last day in the office for 2018 will be Wednesday December 19th. We will re-open on Wednesday January 2nd at 8am. We are thankful for your trust and confidence in providing you with dental care, we thank you for the many referrals of friends, family, and co-workers, and we count our patients here among the many things we are grateful for! We wish you a wonderful holiday season.
~CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Chapman - voted one of Seattle's Top Dentists for 2019, for the 12th consecutive year! ~
"My team and I are committed to creating a warm and positive experience for you in the dental office. Dental visits for many people have been associated with pain, guilt, fear, confusion, or hopelessness. None of those experiences should be part of health care." - Dr. Kimberly Chapman
When patients are listened to, comprehensively examined, and have their exam findings clearly shared with them, dental appointments become a time of education, empowerment, and healing. This will allow you to attain one of the highest levels of health - good oral health!
Historical approaches to oral health have ended at the lower jaw. However, we now know that your overall health and any systemic conditions or medications will also impact your oral health, and vice versa. Total body health is a key component of your care in our practice, along with dietary and nutritional assessments to bring a holistic perspective to oral care. We have one immune system and one blood supply, and circulation does not stop at the neck. In other words, what happens in your mouth doesn't stay in your mouth.
Dental appointments can actually be pain-free, relaxing, and yes, even interesting! My highly skilled and friendly team takes pride in delivering outstanding customer service while helping you keep your smile healthy, functional, and beautiful. You'll always be treated with a gentle touch here. I believe clear and compassionate communication with patients allows them to become better educated about their health, understand treatment options and recommendations, and it is the foundation of a trusted relationship with you.
We utilize many advanced technologies to make processes more comfortable and understandable - from a full-color intraoral camera that allows you to see exactly what we see, to digital x-rays which greatly diminish your exposure to radiation (less than 10%, compared to traditional film x-rays). Digital x-rays also eliminate many harmful chemicals in the environment, i.e., our office and the local landfill. From your first phone call, to appointments for fillings, to your oral hygiene visits with our hygienists many years from now, we value your need to be informed, listened to, and appreciated.
Life can be busy, and good health takes time and commitment. We're always striving to make our practice convenient and accessible. Please visit this site frequently to answer any questions, then come into our office for a tour. We want you to feel confident that when choosing Dr. Kimberly Chapman's office, you're working with a doctor and other adept professionals who are qualified, experienced, and caring.
We also invite you to email or call our Bothell office at any time to request an appointment, or ask questions. (If it is on a Thursday after 2 pm, we will get back to you the following Monday.) Thank you, and we look forward to becoming your new dental home.
