Dentistry in a Fun, Caring & Nurturing Environment

Comfort & Confidence in Every Visit!

Little Pearls Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics is a place for the whole family to enjoy their dental and orthodontic experience. Our intentions when we started our first practice were to alleviate any fear associated with dentistry, and ensure your child looks forward to every visit. This is the foundation upon which we've built our practice, and the value that drives our two locations. Our orthodontic office was first opened in 2007. We now have two locations  in Seattle and Bothell.

It is our pleasure to welcome families and their children into our caring, fun and nurturing office environments. Toddlers,  adolescents, teens and adults are all encouraged to come visit us at our nearest location. At Little Pearls, our goal is to teach parents and adults how to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Our hope is that this knowledge will last a lifetime, and instill great oral habits in our patients. We offer a full range of pediatric dentistry services, as well as orthodontic treatments for children, teens and adults.
