"Dr. Toloue and her assistant Ms. Thanh were very caring and thoughtfully formed an excellent work on my dental problems. I would recommend any one who needs a periodontal work to visit Premier Periodontics on Mercer Island, WA. Woon Cheung"



"Great staff and a great Doctor too. Dr. Wattimena did a great job saving my broken tooth. Everyone in the office from the front desk staff to the doctor and his assistants were amazing. Thank you all."



"Hi praise for my first visit to Premier Periodontics. Staff were efficient and attentive - especially Ms. Thanh. Dr. Toloue was thorough and took the time to explain next steps. All told as pleasant as a trip to the dentist can be……"



"Dr. Wattimena and his team were more than stellar, and exceeded my expectations with my recent dental implant work. We teamed up on a project with a neighboring Ortho (Kirkland Ortho) to perform teeth spacing and eventual implant. Throughout the entire experience, Dr. Wattimena and team ensured that my gum health was at its absolute best health during the 3 year stretch of my tooth project. From regular checks/cleanings to the actual implant day, I received a very high level of care. Dr. Wattimena approach to his work was highly recommended, coupled with great pre-op/post-op instructions, resulted in a very minimal post-op discomfort. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Wattimena and his team to those who are seeking Perio/Gum specialist!"



"I have had my cleanings and periodontia care here for 14 years. Dr Agnos was excellent, as is the care I receive from Allen Wattimena. The most important reason that I continue my care at Premier Periodontics is because of Lori. She has worked with me for the entire time, and provided me with excellent care and sage advice."
