Nick Tanner, Dentist
The most amazing aspect of dentistry is that I get to share my skills and help people fix, maintain, and brighten their smile. I feel like I am saving the world, one mouth at a time. Gone are the days when people have to dread going to the dentist. My goal is to help every patient of mine feel they have their very best smile so that they can be confident wherever life takes them.
I grew up in Spokane, WA, and visited Seattle with my family often. I studied at Brigham Young University and after, went to SUNY at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine where I received my Dental degree in 2010. Following dental school, I moved to this amazing Seattle area where I have been practicing dentistry for the last 7 years.
I have a great passion for dentistry and treating patients as family. My five amazing kids and I love this part of the Northwest and all the fantastic events and experiences Seattle offers. My kids keep me very active and young at heart and help me keep perspective on what matters most.
I’ve wanted to be a dentist ever since I was in grade school. I felt the kindness of my dentist and his staff and knew I wanted to be a part of a team like that. I try every day to deliver the same thoughtful, gentle, and comprehensive dentistry to all my patients that I experienced.
I have been in the dental field for over 20 years and I love what I do. I have learned that dentistry can truly change someone’s life for the better and nothing gives me more pleasure than a patient walking out with a smile they never knew they could have. My goal is to make it easy for you to achieve that smile.
In my spare time I enjoy taking my dog Bailey to the dog park, spending time with my family, shopping and last minute weekend road trips with my girls.
Lead Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant for 18 years and am a lifelong learner who is committed to mastering new techniques and technologies. I understand that being in a dental chair is a stressful experience for many patients and have been told that I put people at ease with my easy going personality. I love working with people and being a part of a team restoring people’s smiles and confidence.
When I am away from the office, I love swimming, skiing and doing school activities with my teenage daughter Madison
Insurance and scheduling Coordinator
I was born and raised in Bremerton, WA., just a ferry ride away from Downtown Seattle. I have previously lived in the Bay area of California, Northern Texas and have spent three summers living and working in Alaska. I am a traveler at heart and like spending most of my free time going to cafes, taking long road trips and exploring the beautiful northwest. Occupationally I’ve worn many hats, however, four years ago I made the switch to the dental field. I attended the Everest College and became a registered dental assistant in 2013. Instead of starting my new career as a dental assistant my first job was at the front desk scheduling patients, providing customer service and verifying insurance. I have found my unplanned role as an appointment and insurance coordinator to be enjoyable and I get a lot of satisfaction in helping patients.
I graduated in 1993 from Hudson Valley Community College in New York and have been a dental hygienist for 25 years.
In my spare time, I love spending time in nature. I like staying current with daily events. Also, I find it interesting learning about new developments in science, medical breakthroughs and astronomy. I enjoy taking care of my patients' dental health.
