As a child I had some very painful and negative experiences sitting in the dentist's chair. Consequently, as an adult I resisted getting regular dental care and the dentists that I did see did not make me feel confident about their dental or social skills. Recently, my daughter strongly encouraged me to get my teeth and gums fixed to a healthy state and keep it that way going forward, meaning regular dental checkups and cleaning. I must say that to my pleasant surprise, Dr. Lawson and the entire staff at Smiles of Bellevue have been extraordinarily friendly and encouraging as I go through this journey of achieving a wide smile that I can be proud of. Dr. Lawson, together with his dental assistants and dental hygienists always make sure that I'm comfortable and pain free during the procedures. And the front desk staff is always so pleasant and accommodating as well. I highly recommend Smiles of Bellevue for your dental needs.
