Life isn’t always simple. Between exhaustive calendars filled with your child’s school and after-school activities, as well as your work and family dentistpersonal life obligations (not to mention the constant laundry list of errands and household chores to accomplish), we know that your days can feel pretty hectic. It can be challenging to schedule all the necessary things your family needs; however, don’t let your family’s oral health fall by the wayside. Healthy teeth and gums are important and our Bothell, WA, family dentist, Dr. Kimberly Chapman, is here to explain why choosing us may just be a major benefit to your family’s crazy schedule. Dr. Chapman and her team offer a wide range of services perfect for the whole family--from children to adults in their senior years. There's no need to go all over town to receive preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental services. 

Prevention

It starts as a child gets his or her first tooth. Mom and dad help brush and floss and bring the little one to Dr. Chapman for a "get acquainted" visit. As that child grows, he or she gets oral check-ups and cleanings, including bite checks, inspection for decay and gum disease. Plastic sealants and fluoride treatments prevent tooth decay and dental sensitivity. By coming in every six months we can continue to monitor developmental milestones and their oral health to pinpoint issues as soon as possible.

With Dr. Chapman, you can trust that your child gets kind, compassionate care. Her office in Bothell also features:

  • Low radiation, digital X-rays
  • Intraoral cameras to detect hidden decay
  • Cavity risk detection (microscopic analysis of oral bacteria)
  • Oral cancer assessment from teen years on up

Restoration

Your family dentist maintains a high level of skill so when she does encounter a problem. She can treat it in a minimally-invasive way. She offers:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental crowns and bridgework
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants
  • Gum disease therapy
  • Night guards to protect against tooth grinding (bruxism)

Additionally, Dr. Chapman is well aware that dental health impacts overall health. So she teaches all her patients the importance of routine oral hygiene at home and at the office.

Cosmetics

Your family's smiles are valuable personal assets. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that a smile is noticed first before any other physical feature. Dr. Chapman enhances her patients' appearance with aesthetic treatments tailored just for them. They include:

  • Professional teeth whitening to remove years of stains
  • Porcelain veneers to cover flaws such as chips and gaps
  • Invisalign clear aligners, the invisible way to straighten crooked smiles
  • Composite resin bonding for seamless repair of cracks, chips, pits, spaces and more

A personal smile analysis tells the patient what treatments make sense for his or her smile width, facial features, age, and gender.

We'd love to see your family
