We had, once again, a wonderful experience at Seattle Kids Dentistry! Cooper is incredibly calm, best bedside manner possible! My daughter is even excited to her appointments knowing that she’s in great hands!

My 20 month old loves going to the dentist now. This space is created to make kids comfortable and at ease. The staff is patient and understanding. I would give Dr. Sabeti 10 stars if it were an option. She is kind, professional, and technically excellent.

One of the best dentist appointments I’ve ever been part of. They made my 11 month old feel safe and cared for. They have lots of patience and you can tell they take pride in taking care of their young clients. I’m excited for my baby’s next appointment.

I have been taking my child to Seattle Kids Dentistry for over 5 years. They are consistently professional, their offices are immaculately kept, and their staff offer stellar service! My daughter enjoys her visits, including being able to watch a movie on the ceiling while getting her teeth cleaned. All of the doctors we have worked with were knowledgeable and very competent.

My sons, now 11 and 13 have been going to SKD since they were 1 and the practice was located in Q.A Ave!!! I can't recommend them enough. They have excellent providers who have been incredibly supportive of our kids especially working with my son's anxiety about dentist and intense gag reflex through the years. Very thankful

The staff is always friendly and helpful. My kids love the comfy set up they have, enjoy picking what they get to watch on the ceiling TV, and absolutely can’t wait to pick out their toy at the end of their visit. We also get a nice bag of dental goodies at the end. They were patient with my nervous child and kept checking in with him.

Everyone there is so nice and pro! We had extraction, and Dr Julie did such an amazing job, my son is so happy and it did not hurt he says. She also followed up to make sure we are good. Thank you!

I am always a little hesitant about going to a new place but we were made to feel very welcome. The staff is so friendly and have it down to a T when it comes to working with children. My son is pretty shy and does not like new people but he did great with the staff. Would definitely recommend SKD!

I loved everything about our visit to Seattle kids dentistry. Olivia was absolutely lovely when I had called a day or two earlier to see if I should cancel as I thought our 19 month old may be getting sick. Luckily it was only allergies and all was good health wise. Morning of we were running 15 min late and called Olivia to let them know. She was so understanding and gracious about it. Gemma met the dental hygienist Ayana and instantly fell in love with how kind, friendly, and calm she was. After her cleaning and fluoride and some helpful tips from Ayana, Gemma had her visit with Dr. Sabetti who was also absolutely wonderful. Everyone was super knowledgeable, efficient, patient, and professional. Could not have had a better first visit and looking forward to our next follow up. Additional perks: outside of downtown traffic, plenty of free parking, clean offices without overstimulating sounds or visual distractions.

This was my toddler's first dental checkup. Dr. Julie and Chamari both were excellent. My 2.5 year old was super happy throughout her appointment. They also brushed ans flossed her teeth and she was so quiet and engaged throughout. I would highly recommend this place. My kid was so excited to get some toys at the end.

My kids LOVE this place! It's always so nice & clean. It's awesome, they even have flat screens on the ceiling so the kids can watch movies while they have their teeth checked or cleaned. They get a little suprise bag with tooth brush, floss, flouride rinse, stickers & stuff 🙂 Everyone there is so welcoming and super friendly💗 Most importantly, they have great service.

Our family has been lucky enough to be Seattle Kids Dentistry patients since 2013. Our little ones were anxious when they first started going to the dentist. The staff at SKD have always been patient and kind. Their office staff and hygienists are friendly and informed, making our family feel welcome. Our family sees Dr. Merchant, and I can’t possibly express how much we love her! She is the perfect fit for our family. She is incredibly knowledgeable and empowers our girls to speak up and participate in their dental health. We started with SKD when we lived on Queen Anne and have continued with them since moving to Shoreline because we trust the care they give her girls and appreciate the relationship we’ve built. I honestly can’t recommend them enough. We will continue to make the commute until our girls age out of their clinic ❤️

I was pretty worried that my 2 year old was not going to tolerate his teeth being cleaned and assessed. But, the hygienist Cooper was exceptionally patient and kind and gentle with him. Showed him all the tools by practicing on a rubber ducky (which my son looved) and practicing on the surface of his hand. It went so much better than I expected and I was so impressed with how calm and safe they made my son feel. I am very grateful for their expertise!

I was hesitant and worried about taking my daughter to her first visit to the dentist today. She required multiple extractions.I needn't have worried! The dental practice was brilliant and the treatment was with as little pain to my daughter as needs be.I would like to make a huge shout out to Michelle who made the experience for my daughter as good as can be, going to the dentist for the first time.

We 1st came to visit Dr. Linsenmayer when my daughter needed a tooth pulled (mouth too small). Our family Dentist recommended her when he felt uncomfortable pulling it out of a 8 year old. With Dr. Linsenmayer expertise she had that tooth out with my daughter even knowing it! 10 years later she has know aged out. We begged for one final cleaning before she left for college. If we had known we would have said a proper goodbye and some sort of graduation ceremony. The dental hygienist are all awesome, gentle and kind. I can’t recommend this place enough.

My wife suggested I post a follow-up review following our experience a few days ago (when we had been unable to get a response from the office for most of the day for our daughter's urgent dental issue during what was supposed to be normal business hours). Once we were able to connect with the on-call dentist (Dr. Merchant), she provided helpful advice and excellent follow-up through the weekend. We were able to see Dr. Linsenmayer Monday morning who was extremely thorough and helpful -- did the right amount of testing and consulted with a oral surgeon colleague during our visit to confirm the appropriate recommendations for our daughter. The oral surgeon she referred us to (Dr. Karen Zemplenyi) was outstanding as well. In the end, they went out of their way to help us through a very stressful situation (after the initial challenge of reaching anyone in the office). I would still hope to see improvement in communication regarding office closures during normal business hours (e.g. updating the outgoing message and/or website) but the dental care itself ended up being extremely helpful.

My little one loves this place too much and keeps on asking when her next dental appointment is. She has perfect teeth, but keeps on making list of what she wants to check in with her favorite 'teacher' Michelle, such as what she should do with her wiggly tooth, exactly when she can expect tooth ferry and so on. Michelle engages her in the process by giving her customized background info, little assignments and making sure she has no further questions/doubts. I think my kid gets thrilled because she feels like an active contributor to the serious job.

We can not recommend SKD enough. We first found them through a field trip for first grade and decided to try them. Our kids love going here (well our youngest likes it to a point and then doesn’t want his teeth cleaned 😂). The staff is soo friendly always going above and beyond to make our kids feel comfortable. It’s always a very clean office. The kids love the TVs in the ceiling and the prizes. I’m kind of jealous I can’t go here myself! 10 out of 10 would recommended

The care team at Seattle Kids Dentistry has been life-changing for our family! Dr Merchant helped us tremendously with getting to the root issue of our child's teeth grinding problems, and we moved care from our regular family dentist to here for both our children. She took a very methodical approach and helped show us the data to make decisions for our child's care each step of the way. She's careful and direct, considering both short and long term care. Her office makes for a wonderful child experience - bright, very clean and orderly, child-sized chairs, and best of all with a prize area for each visit. We highly recommend Dr Merchant and her team!

I have to say i love Dr. Merchant. She is so wonderful. Today my daughter who is 7 had to have a filling and a crown put in. No small task for a kiddo who was very nervous about it all.The Dr. and assistant were such a great team. They made my daughter feel comfort, relaxed and made the experience very positive. I appreciate Dr. Merchant took the time to explain to my daughter what would be happening before it happened. She was very gentle and afterward my daughter even said. “ wow that went better than i expect.”I have been going here for a few years. During COVID 19. I am also super impressed with their standards for safety but at the same time keeping a welcoming caring atmosphere.We are so happy to have found this dentist office and highly recommend them.

Dr. Merchant and her staff have been caring for my child ever since his first dental appointment at 6 months old. They are kind, gentle, patient and really take the time to genuinely connect with families. My son is almost 9 years old and he loves going to the dentist! He bounces out of the car with a smile and hops back in with that same bright smile. Michelle has been his tech for the last few years and she has the warmest heart with him. She follows up with how school is going, and shows true interest in him. We would never go any place else. SKD is fantastic - they deserve 6/5 stars

Best dentist I have ever been to or taken my children to in my entire life - can't recommend them strongly enough! We'd visited the practice - Dr. Merchant specifically - 10 years ago because we live in a tiny town in Mexico, with not-great dental care. Our 12-year-old son had been suffering for months with a very sensitive tooth. In the very little time we had available, Dr. Merchant quickly diagnosed the problem, and extracted all four canines - which was made way more complicated by our son's needle phobia. She handled him firmly and gently and had the teeth out before he - or we! - could even get stressed out. We still live in Mexico, and just recently our college-age daughter was told she had to have all four wisdom teeth removed. As Dr. Merchant is the best dentist - kids' or otherwise - that I'd ever found, I turned to her via email. Incredibly, over the New Year's holiday, she responded with her usual warmth and efficiency, even though the offices were officially closed. If you have kids, Dr. Merchant is the dentist for you - even if it means you have to fly to Seattle to see her! Thanks, Dr. Merchant and Seattle Kids Dentistry!

my husband and I were sharing our horror stories of our childhood dentists on our way to our son’s appointment this morning. I can safely say our son thoroughly enjoyed his time here this morning with Dr Sabeti and Maryann.The office was clean and bright. So fit and welcoming for kids. There were copious toys and books everywhere for the kids.The entire staff from the receptionist to the doctor was kind and professional. We were explained and walked through the process and what we can also expect to do at home to make brushing and flossing easier.

After a not so amazing / traumatizing experience with general anesthesia here in 2015, it took us a while to come back. I was assured that the practices of their former contracted anesthesiologist is no longer practiced. The dental cleaning was great, staff is friendly and more than competent! My child left happy and with no cavities! Dr. Sabeti was great!

Seattle Kids Dentistry is amazing! I left them a message at 5 AM noting that my daughter had pain in her tooth and they called before 7 AM with a morning appointment. The staff and dentists are so patient and thoughtful in their approach and the televisions on the ceiling are a hit with the kids.
