What You Need To Know Before Visiting Our Office

We start every day reaffirming our goal of giving you a great experience so that you walk out the door with your best smile. University Place Smiles is dedicated to giving you clear explanations, quality care, our utmost respect and a few laughs along the way. You deserve it!

On your first visit to our University Place dentist office, we will take a full health history. On subsequent visits, if your health status has changed, make sure to tell us.

Most dental visits are checkups. Regular checkups (ideally every six months) will help your teeth stay cleaner, last longer and can prevent painful problems from developing.
