What Sets Us Apart

Personalized, Quality Dentistry for Your Healthiest Smile

Your oral health is closely intertwined with your overall health: What happens in the mouth affects your body and what happens in the body has an impact in the oral cavity.

At Dentistry NW, we understand these connections and the importance of caring for the whole body beyond your dental concerns.

Dr. Karl Smith and our team focus on patient education, so you can make informed decisions and take control of your smile; in doing so, we help you achieve and maintain a healthy body, too!

What’s Different at Dentistry NW?

By combining advanced dental techniques, leading-edge technologies, and an individualized approach to treatment, we ensure you achieve your goals.

Dr. Smith and our staff know the best dentistry starts with us understanding what you are seeking, your concerns, and what you need from care. After determining your clinical needs, Dr. Smith will design a treatment approach that works for the whole of your situation, for efficient, effective, affordable care, and results that have you smiling!

Should you have dental needs beyond what we offer, we work closely with local specialists — orthodontists, oral surgeons, endodontists, and lab technicians — to ensure the best experience and results.

Focus on Comfort

The thought of a dental visit, much less a procedure, can cause anxiety for some people. If this is you, we’d appreciate the opportunity to meet and talk about your previous experiences and how we can help you overcome your fears.

We will listen, learn, and work closely with you to find a treatment path that is non-threatening. In addition to offering mild sedation options, including nitrous oxide, Dr. Smith uses a safe, painless dental laser for fillings and other procedures. The laser eliminates the need for injection of numbing medication, so no needles are required, and it works without heat, vibration, or drilling!

It is important for you to be at ease while in our care. Our treatment chairs are supportive, and we offer blankets, neck pillows, Bluetooth headsets, and paraffin wax hand treatments, as well.

If there is ever anything you need to make a visit easier, please let us know!
