At Apatoff Family Dentistry, we provide a patient friendly experience for the whole family. We place our emphasis on prevention of disease. The father-daughter team of doctors believes the best dental treatment is as little treatment as possible. We believe that less is more. The least amount of man-made materials placed into the mouth, the better. Should treatment become necessary, our patient friendly experience eases those who are anxious at a dentist's office. Our goal is to improve your oral health in a stress-free environment.

Julie has been working the in the dental field for over 25 years and originally trained as a dental assistant. She now not only assists, but also takes care of many of the administrative tasks that make our office run smoothly. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated, caring, and fun individual working with us.
Prevention of disease is important to us. All adult cleanings and periodontal maintenance are performed by one of the dentists. This ensures maximum doctor-patient contact and continuity of care. For patients who desire whiter teeth, we offer a dentist supervised whitening system with custom molded whitening trays to comfortably fit each patient's individual mouth.
We are able to offer our patients the most beneficial and time tested materials and techniques available to modern dentistry. At our office, the patient and doctor, together, decide what are the best materials and procedures available to restore their particular mouths to excellent oral health. This includes implants, crowns, bridges, tooth colored (composite) fillings, and even silver (amalgam) fillings should that be right for you. Many dentists, today, no longer offer gold crowns because of the their high overhead cost and supposed lack of esthetics. We believe that if the esthetics of gold can be accepted, these are still the longest lasting replacements for missing tooth structure. If having a "metal free" mouth is desired, we happily provide gorgeous tooth looking restorations for the entire mouth as well.
Oral surgery and root canal procedures are performed in our office. We want our patients to have the best care available so we have a team of specialitsts we call upon to give our patients expert care when needed. We fabricate and repair complete and partial dentures utilizing well over forty years of experience.
We gladly accept Cash, Check, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover Card. All dental insurances are accepted here that allow you, the patient, to see any dentist of your choosing. We are Premier providers for Deltal Dental of Washington and Preferred providers for Regence BlueShield. Arrangements can also be made through CareCredit for twelve month interest free financing as well as much longer terms on approved credit.
