Jake H.Extremely Helpful and Refreshingly Kind

I went to Seattle Specialty Dentistry in hopes of receiving consultation on dental implants and restorative work. They were kind, helpful, and seemed genuinely interested in my cosmetic goals. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a personable prosthodontist with above-average patient care.

Ron M.

I continue to receive good professional and friendly care when visiting this Dentist office.

Jeff H.

Always a pleasure. Everyone greets you with a sincere love of their jobs, and a warm welcome. And that goes for everyone. That coupled with the dental skills that is brimming from everyone that works there literally makes you look forward to getting more work done. It is why I eat sugar. Just so I might get the pleasure of having another filling put in by them. Ok I might have stretched that a little far but this place is a class act for real.

Hannah W.Great dental care

This office is efficient and comprehensive in its approach to dentistry.

Maggie W.

I arrived early for my appointment and was seen promptly. The treatment was provided efficiently and with great care for my comfort. I had opportunity to talk about my concerns for the future care. Excellent experience overall. Thank you!

Franck G.High quality service, friendly, ont time and efficient from the check in to check out.

A good experience.

Michael B.Recommended

My most recent visit this time was for routine cleaning and a dental exam. The staff and Dr. Chotiwannaporn are professional, timely, and friendly - no complaints. No wait time, although I always choose a first AM visit - So maybe no surprise in terms of this. Dr. Chotiwannaporn has within the last 12 months done 1 crown in my mouth. I experienced no soreness or sense of ill-fit after the procedure. It was like having my original tooth back. So, yes... I'll continue to use this dental practice myself and recommend it to others.

Doug O.

Consistently professional and thorough cleaning. Always a welcoming and friendly environment. Debbie takes detail, including history as a client, into account and genuinely cares for me. Always prompt, seldom a wait. If there is a wait it is only a few minutes.

Tai D.Courteous, Professional Dental Office

I've been a patient here for more than 15 years and I can not say enough about their high-quality care. The office is impeccably clean. The view of downtown Seattle is amazing and relaxing. The staff is professional, courteous, efficient and very accommodating. Though my hygienist has recently retired, others have stepped in to continue her gentle, yet thorough cleaning. It seems they only hire the best. Bravo, and thank you Seattle Specialty Dentistry.

Earl T.Professional gentle cleaning

I had a quarterly cleaning and exam. The person who performed the cleaning was gentle and professional and efficient.

Mari M.Excellent staff and dental cleaning!

Excellent in all areas! My dental hygienist was very gentle and did an amazing job cleaning my teeth.

Penny N.Price vs Quality

I went to this office for a second opinion. The price was higher here but the quality of the office was so outstanding that I will be going here. I need 6 crowns, so the extensive treatment needed a staff with extensive experience and expertise.

Jean P.

I am very happy with the result, but I do not write reviews.

Joan F.

I have been a patient for two decades and always have received excellent care.

Greg K K.

You guys ROCK!!

Leah B.Great job

I always have anxiety when I’m going through dental procedures. Deep cleaning is one of those procedures that I dread and get anxious days before my appointment. I was pleasantly surprised by the service that I received and walked away with a pleasant experience. Now I am not dreading my next deep cleaning appointment as long as I have the same person doing it :).

Daniel B.

I had a great experience yesterday at the Specialty Dentistry. My dentest Dr Pavinee is very kind and thorough. Casey did a great job cleaning my teeth. Team was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Thank you for your great service."

Michael J.The best dentist in Seattle!

Dr. Pavinee is amazing. I have been a patient for over 30 years. It was hard losing Dr. Bryant but at least I know I am in great hands. Dr. Pavinee is so sweet and kind. She is great with bite issues. The whole office is amazing. I highly recommend!

Paula O.

I come for cleaning and routine check up. What still brings me to the office after (my DR with the golden hands) left DR. Junge was DR Bryant. He left us also, my other angel Cathy retired. What I have left? is Casey. Casey is my first angel at this office, who help me to get this Mercedes on my mouth. Yes, I said Mercedes, because I have full mouth of implants and gorges teeth. Casey help me a lot, after backing up two times, she help me to make the correct decision and to be happy with the reconstruction of my teeth/ mouth. I want to thank Debbie my hygienist, who helps me keep my teeth clean and teach me one think or two how to stay on the top of thinks with my teeth. I love this office, I truly do. I meet DR. Pavinee and I am hoping I will keep the relation going like I had with DR, Junge and DR Bryan. Thank you Casey again for help me to keep smiling. You all have a busy and wonderful summer and I will see you again in November.

Louise W.Client Focused with Professional and Courteous Staff

I've been coming here for almost 8 years for all of my dental needs including cleaning, cosmetic fillings, and implants. The entire staff is dedicated to the health and well-being of their clients, with top notch hygienists, modern equipment, and a spotless office.

Kestin M.Better experience compared to previous dentists

I felt very at home right when i entered the door. I have a teeth grinding problem and have been discouraged by other dentists in the past making me feel like there was nothing i could do to save my smile. My experience at Seattle Specialty was very different. I was given positive feedback in regards to the health of my teeth and the whole care team was awesome. Even the x-rays were more comfortable than those i've received at every other dentist. You can tell the team here really cares about their patients. Highly recommend.

Michael J.Top notch care! Excellent team!

Excellent care. Everyone was very professional and really went over and beyond for a great dental experience!

Anne W.

Warm, professional, and painless experience.

Steven H.Dentistry Done Well

First of all, Seattle Specialty Dentistry, does extraordinary dental work. A good dentist can be hard to find and these folks are exceptional. They also make their patients feel like family in the best possible way. They are friendly, patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend!!!!!

Josh K.Wonderful Staff

They have been wonderful for over 20 years.

Mary B.

First rate care, such as I and other members of my family (mother, husband, and son) have received going on for many (can it be thirty?) years now.

Mercedes R.Always delivers excellent service

The new hygienist was very thorough cleaning my teeth. She was very friendly and I felt comfortable while the procedure was being done. The doctor was very caring and I can tell that she knows my teeth history.

Janise H.Just in for cleaning today

I always receive top notch care at Seattle Specialty Dentistry. Today I saw Casey their new hygienist and found her to be very thorough. After the preliminary check, she identified two areas of concern in my mouth that I hadn't even mentioned yet. I was impressed. She did a super job removing plaque and making my teeth extra smooth. Plus, she is a treat to talk to. SSD for the win!

Russell B.I really enjoyed my last teeth cleaning

Strange thing to say but the conversation and experience was really nice. Don't think I have ever said that about going to the dentist before.

Justin J.Professional, thorough and courteous

I have always had a positive experience at Seattle Special Dentistry. Debbie is a wonderful hygienist. Thorough, professional and always making sure I’m comfortable. The entire staff is wonderful and they all make a visit to the dentist a very pleasant experience.

Suzie S.Excellent Care

I have some tricky dental issues and the team here is just excellent.

John E.

Very organized and professional

Jean H.Warm Caring Staff

My new hygienist, Casey, was gentle and thorough with my cleaning. This is such a wonderful office. I look forward to my visits.

Jay L.Love Debbie, my hygienist!

Debbie understands my anxiety about dentists. She take good, gentle care of me and only calls for backup when I have something develop that she determines needs extra care. Do NOT ever let her retire! Jay

Sandy K.High quality of service

It’s always a pleasure to have my teeth cleaned and examined. The whole staff is professional and very helpful with all my dental needs. Thanks Debbie and Casey you always Have had the best advise and care!

Cynthia T.Exceptional service!

I have been going to this office for over 30 years and they just keep exceeding their own exceptional standards. I cracked a tooth. They fit me in right away and took care of it. I can’t say enough great about their whole team!

Kathy O.Superior Care

Without exception, the professional care I receive at Seattle Specialty Dentistry is superior. Let's face it, few love visiting a dental office. But here, the atmosphere is relaxing from the moment I step in. I always receive a friendly and courteous reception. The office is warm, not sterile. Today's visit was to the hygienist - again, friendly, polite, professional, painless. The dentist stepped in to review my X-rays; again, friendly & professional demeanor. No immediate care required; I'll return in 6 months.

Nora N.Best hygienists in town!

I have difficult teeth and today I had a cleaning from a new hygienist who was delightful, professional, and superbly skilled. I've been coming here for years and it's like this every time. Not one twinge ever. All of the hygienists here are amazing. I used to have to have novocain shots to have my teeth cleaned but I've never needed that here. They're highly skilled and up to date on all the latest ways to make this easier. They're fun to talk to too! Really lovely people. I've also had crowns made and that went wonderfully too. They felt like my own teeth right from the beginning and are still in great shape years later. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough. I would never consider going anywhere else.

Dan S.High Quality Service

Just had my semi-annual dental cleaning and checkup. As always, for the last 30 years, service is great and staff are super professional and friendly. Thank you so much!

Mary D.Excellent Dental Practice

Fortunately, I have only needed every-6-month cleanings for a long time. Debbie is gentle and thorough.

Sandi S.Dental reconstruction

The service was great and the dentist has been really knowledgeable, artistic, and hard-working. I am happy with the work the doctor did and now I have beautiful smile. I highly recommend dr pevanee a Seattl Specialty

Geoff R.

Great service. Genuinely nice people is all they employ. Dr. Bryant was great, a neighbor and close friend. New doc whose name I cannot pronounce or spell is as good as Ron and he had very high standards. She is even as nice as he was which is a high bar.

Gerard L.Professional, Friendly, Efficient

Everyone at Seattle Specialty Dentistry is very professional, friendly, and efficient. They care about any discomfort or fears you may have during dental procedures, and they explain everything they are doing while working on your teeth. Highly recommended!

David S.Best. Dentist. Practice. Ever.

Traditionally, dental appointments have been my least favorite activity that I could imagine. Since finding Seattle Specialty Dentistry, I can say that it's been a much easier process both during the procedures and the follow up with the office staff for billing. Since I have used conscious sedation, I'm left with very little memory of the actual work being done, and that is perfect for me. My only regret is I am not able to remember the wonderful people as much as I would like who make my time there as comfortable as possible.

Maresi N.great service and friendly

the medical staff in the specialty dentistry is very helpful. The medical staff is very competent

Judith H.High Quality Service

Everyone was very nice and my new filling was completed in rapid time!

David I.Hi quality of service, friendly people.

I copied the 'suggestion' because it rang true; I am very pleased with yesterday's service! I want to say that after Joan left and with Dr. Bryant's death, I was apprehensive about the service I would receive moving forward. They had been my Dentist and Assistant for ~ 30 years! But I was pleasantly surprised by the care that I have received. I have had three different hygienists & Dr. Pavinee work on me since, and I agree with Ron when he said that he left us "in good hands". The front office staff always makes sure that I have appointments at the right time, and have always worked with me when my busy schedule forces me to cancel, and look for another opportunity to come in on short notice. Two of my adult children have come back to have their dental needs cared for by this dental group. I will continue to allow you to provide excellent service to me and my family; thanks to all of you!

Heather P.Very friendly and supportive

Kelly did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. She was very kind and personal. I would love to have her work with me again on my next cleaning. My appointment that followed my cleaning was for a bridge. All three of the people that worked with me were very kind and patient. I would have liked it if they would have been explaining to me what it was they were doing as the work was being done or letting me know what was coming up. Overall I had a good experience with the staff. The people at the front desk were very friendly, kind and helpful!

Linda D.Superb experience

Above and beyond is an understatement in describing the attention given patients by lovely staff, hygienists and dentist in this cheerful office. Dr. Pavinee clearly is continuing the fine tradition of Dr. Bryant.

Steven D.First Visit

Staff was extremely efficient and accommodating for my first visit.

Richard M.Great service and friendly

francine w.

Alex S.Great service

Thank you so much for the help with my teeth! I am dealing with brain cancer and have enhanced pain on the right side of my face. Seattle speciality dentistry made sure I was pain free, and took their time. They dint rush, like other dentist, they took their time with me all the while making sure I’m pain free.

Sandra O.

Excellent treatment from reception to technicians and doctor.

Mark R.Outstanding 1st visit

I am a new patient and received excellent treatment/service during my initial visit.

Sara R.Good Repair of an old amalgam filling in a back molar

My first time with Dr. Pavinee; I have done implants and a full bridge replacement with Dr. Bryant prior to his recent passing. Dr.'s manner was warm and efficient. I believe she did a solid job replacing the old silver filling with resin composite; however its a back molar so may need to go step further and do a crown in near future-- those are expensive!

isaac m.Teeth cleaning

Excellent care and work.

Mary Jane M.Exceptional Dentistry Staff

I have been going to this dental office for many years and it is always extremely professional and highly skilled.They keep up with the newest and most Innovative procedures in an effort to provide their clients the best that is out there The staff at the front desk are so cheerful and polite.

Dennis R.High quality service; caring attitude

The thoroughness of the staff today was tops. That includes the dentist, the hygienist and the office manager.

Gay G.Dr. Pavinee is a terrific dentist in every way

I have been a patient of Dr. Pavinee only for about 6 months, but so far she has exceeded all of my expectations with respect to treatment, communication, and kindness. Her dental assistant Kayla and the support staff have also been great. Thus far she has replaced a crown, filled 2 cavities, and performed an evaluation for the placement of several implants. She is gentle and skilled. In addition, she takes the time to provide in-depth answers to my questions. Although previous dentists have urged me to brush in the morning (in addition to my routine of brushing at bedtime), it never became my habit. But for some reason, Dr. Pavinee's admonitions about oral bacteria have sunk in, and I have added an additional daytime brushing.

Alexis J.Talented and caring dental office!

Lisa does an amazing job at cleaning and is so personable. I love visiting her and everyone at the office!

Diane T.Amazing Professional

Love them!

Shelia J.


Karen R.Excellent Dental Care

Dr. Pavinee is gentle, professional and an excellent dentist. I highly recommend her and the team at Seattle Specialty Dentistry. I transitioned over to her after we lost Dr. Bryant. I believe he chose her very carefully when he added her to his practice and I'm so glad he did. We miss Dr. Bryant but we are in very, very good hands with Dr. Pavinee.

Patricia S.

I have had problems with my teeth all my life and have had a lot of work done in a lot of places. Your doctor and other staff are the best that I have encountered in terms of preparation, manner with and concern for patient, and up-to-date facility. My husband also had some beautiful restoration work done here. And I am confident that I will be very pleased when mine is finished. Thank you.

Barbara M.Outstanding dental care!

Debbie does such a great job! I hope you will recognize and commend her as a valued member of your staff. Thank you so much!

Ben L.Continually outstanding care

Seattle Specialty Dentistry always provides me with great dental care and advice. I have been a patient of theirs for around 6 years and can't imagine changing. I drive from Snohomish County for my appointments and it is well worth my time.

The team at Seattle Specialty Dentistry is simply the best. I have been a happy patient for 15 years. Prior I was very anxious about dental work, not any more. I always feel confident and comfortable in their warmth and care. I highly recommend the practice.

S P.Friendly professional service

Fit me in for problem that popped up and took great care in addressing the issue. Dr. Bryant was not in so I saw Dr. Pavinee who is just as fabulous as Dr Bryant.

I've had 30k worth of work done at Specialty Dentistry. That's a few hours in the chair and never was I uncomfortable or unclear as to what we were doing and why we were doing it. I've always been annoyed by the dentist office. That's probably why I needed 30k in work done. They had their work cut out for them when I showed up. But they have been the perfect partners on my dental rehabilitation. Thank you.. I'm very greatful
