"Highly recommend Premier Periodontics (Bellevue)! I was a patient at the Bellevue office and underwent a dental gum grafting. Was somewhat anxious going into the surgery because I had heard stories from my friends who went through similar procedures. Dr. Issa and Svetlana did an excellent job of outlining the entire process and making me feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. Not only did the surgery and recovery go well, but I felt like I was literally a part of the Premier Periodontics family every time I stepped foot into that office. Everyone there is so over the top nice and welcoming; never thought I would feel sad leaving my last check up appt."
"Everything went great. Dr. Dkeidek is very skilled and professional, I couldn't be more pleased."
"Dr. Hyun and her assistant Larissa extracted my number 32 tooth yesterday September 21st in Everett. I was so impressed with their expertise and kindness. They were continually asking if I was OK and that gave me great comfort. I would recommend the team to anyone knowing that they would be happy with the procedure"
