"Premier made me feel comfortable and confident during all my visits. Working with me on my terms and an impossible schedule that is my life....I felt respected and greatful. Top notch medical care with the kindnesses and compassion you and I have always felt we deserve. Thank you to all your staff."



"Dr. Wattimena, Lori and all the staff are amazing! Good job, guys!"



"I can’t say enough positive things about these very professional and knowledgeable and kind people at Premiere Periodontics. Let’s face it. If you are going to see a Periodontist it probably means something is wrong. I was referred to them by Rewards Dental in Burien and I wound up at the Kent location, which was most convenient location for me. I had an appointment with Dr. Ashour. My situation with my tooth implant is not great and he didn’t beat around the bush, he told me bottom line what was going on. He was very clear and informative about my circumstances. Which did discourage me, I can’t lie. Here’s the most important part, though. I left not just with a sense of the reality about things but also with hope and an uplifted spirit that, together as a team, we will figure this out. It’s gonna take basically a year to fix the whole thing but I already waited half a year to get this news, no time to delay and I feel empowered to take on this difficult challenge, partly thanks to Premiere.. Sandra at the front desk and Mackenzie were also amazing and incredibly helpful. I can’t speak to prices but it seemed roughly what similar work cost me a few years ago at another dentist. They will take your insurance, as well."



"I love Shawn at Premier Periodontics Kirkland! Shawn is the absolute best at cleaning my teeth! My gums are doing better since I have been in her care. I highly recommend PPK and Shawn!"



"I think for my first visit there the staff was great I had no problems with anyone. Very professional!!!"
