Nicholas SmithHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“Clean, friendly, and on time. Their staff took very good care of my teeth and were always very pleasant. Definitely recommend Thomas Dentistry!”
Nelson LopezHappy Client from Mercer Island Office
“Very very exceptional service, from making the appointment all the way to check out.”
Elaina ShHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“Went to that office last year to get a crown on implant and Dr. Thomas did the ugliest crown possible. Shape and height looked completely different from natural tooth I had in that place before. He did not even try to fix it. This year my new dentist confirmed that the crown should have been done completely different but now Im stuck with this crown for a while because it will cost a ton to re-do it since that is a dental implant crown, not just a regular crown. I guess I missed the first red flag when they said they do root canals and extractions too. Of course, why even going to roots canals specialists and oral surgeons if You can get a “buffet of services” at Dr. Thomas! Also Molly at the front desk is the rudest receptionist I ve even seen, billing office could not get the numbers right and overcharged me for about $800 then refunded but can this office be more unprofessional and thirsty for money?!!”
Sarah GielgensHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“I have been a patient at Thomas dentistry for over 10 years and have always appreciated their open and friendly atmosphere, knowledgeable and helpful advice, use of new technology and methods, consistent and kind care. Dr. Thomas, Dr. Nguyen, and Dr. Jaswal have all demonstrated genuine care and interest in their patient’s lives, dental health and history, and other medical concerns. I admire their dedication to providing excellent solutions to dental problems, and patience with special issues. I would recommend this team to everyone!”

Ronald FolseHappy Client from Kirkland Office
“I’vy been a patient with Dr Troy for fifteen years and have always been impressed with him and his entire staff. I am 86 years old and was hesitant to make my visit, but his whole staff used the best practices to insure the safety in the office. Unfortunately , I will be moving to California ima month or so and will have to find a new dentist , and hope that they will be as good as Dr Thomas and his staff.”

We want to be your family Dentist
We’re here to answer your questions.
At Thomas Dentistry, we strongly recommend that you schedule a dental cleaning and examination every six months. Regular visits are crucial for early detection of issues like cavities and gum disease, and they help maintain your overall oral health.
Most patients find dental cleanings at Thomas Dentistry to be quite comfortable. Our skilled dental hygienists take great care to minimize discomfort. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, please let us know beforehand so we can take additional steps to ensure your comfort.
A standard dental cleaning and examination at our Kirkland office usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour. This allows us enough time to perform a thorough cleaning and conduct a comprehensive oral examination, including X-rays if necessary.
X-rays are generally taken once a year or as needed to provide a more comprehensive view of your oral health. They help us identify issues that may not be visible during a standard oral examination.
Skipping regular dental cleanings and exams increases your risk of developing cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Regular visits to Thomas Dentistry can help you avoid these problems and maintain a healthy smile.
