Northgate Smiles (206) 362-1516. Jo made my first visit an excellent one. She is very knowledgeable and provided an excellent overview of the current health of my teeth. The rest of the office is very upbeat and friendly. I have found my dentist office. Thank you Jon O

The most thorough x-rays, cleaning and examination I have ever received. So incredibly thankful I found Dr.Aylen. She is worth every penny and makes my smile even brighter. Incredible & knowledgeable staff makes the visit that much more pleasant.

Dr. Aylen is by far the best dentist I've ever had. The staff there are extremely helpful, polite, courteous and friendly. I have been to this dentist 4 time already and I have not had any bad experiences. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Firstly - in the interest of transparency I would like to say that Northgate Smiles gives a very nice incentive for their clients to leave reviews. This is also why there are so many reviews for their clinic. Regardless, my review is 100% honest.

I have always had a great experience with Northgate Smiles. The receptionists, the hygienists, and the dentists are all very welcoming and willing to take time to explain things to you. The receptionists have on multiple times walked me through my bill line by line. On one occasion they went through a great deal of effort and even called my previous dentist to find out about a previous filling that was making my current bill high. In collaboration with the dentist they were able to make some changes that saved me some money (fantastic!). The hygienist took the time to explain to me exactly what she was doing and gave me great pointers on how to care for my teeth better. Dr. Aylen explained to me at what point cavities were reversible to help me understand why my fillings were necessary. I really appreciate when my providers are willing to put in the time to actually explain things to me and I feel the entire staff at Northgate Smiles does so and does so consistently.

They are very easy to schedule appointments with and utilize multiple ways of reminding you of your appointment. I was even given a Starbucks gift card for being accommodating and coming in early for my appointment. Some other 'amenities' that I appreciate is the keurig machine in the lobby for those waiting and the best part is the cable television. There is one in front of each chair that has cable television where they give you the remote and headphones so that you may watch it during your procedure.

The only negative feedback I have is that it appears that the dentists bounce around from patient to patient. I have had to wait in the dentist's chair in the middle of my appointment for the dentist to return on several occasions. Regardless, because of the excellent customer service I have received otherwise, I will be returning to Northgate Smiles and recommend that others do as well.

For most people, dentists are not popular folks. Dr. Karla. E Aylen and Northgate Smiles are the "huge" exception. My experience with dentist is usually highly "transactional" in that they try to "push" products and services on to you. Dr. Aylen is the complete opposite. Their patient care is off the charts. Not only was she very personable and caring during all my procedures with included a root canal and insertion of crown, etc., but her team follow-on care was tremendous. Services were excellent and everything was explained in detail. Furthermore, the staff is very courteous and always greets guests with patience and a smile. They are knowledgeable, caring and efficient. Couple this with great state of the art equipment and you will have an excellent experience.

I am new to the Seattle area and finally came to the decision to make a dentist appointment. I chose this location based on excellent reviews and proximity to my apartment, but also on the attention to detail for their website and list of services provided. I am more than happy with my final decision. This was a tough thing for me to do because I have only seen one dentist my whole life in a small town in South Carolina and I see now what Ive been missing out on. This office has kept up with the times and technology. There are TVs in every room with remote that you can control. It made my visit fly by and kept me entertained while the nurse and doctor worked a gentle hand on my teeth. Everyone was beyond friendly and accommodating. Every room was clean and up to date. I know this doesnt matter to some people, but it had beautiful artwork and design. The building itself has a few different offices in it, so there is plenty of parking and its very easy to get to, being right off I-5 and close to the Northgate Mall.
My appointment began with a short wait and a pleasant receptionist. This was followed by a very friendly nurse, who took a few painless X-rays and photos of my teeth. This allowed me to visually see the damage on my teeth and to fully understand what work needed to be done. After a gently and thorough cleaning, Dr. Karla Aylen promptly came to discuss my situation and future work to be done. She was very friendly and to the point, but taking the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. I have rapid decay and need a lot of work done and they were willing to prioritize the work to accommodate my schedule and finances. This was the cleanest, friendliest and most modern office I could have imagined. I highly recommend their services and to delay no longer on fixing those pearly whites!

I went to Northgate Smiles to get my teeth cleaned, and to have them examine some tooth pain. They determined that the pain was coming from my baby tooth (I am 25), and that it was time for me to get it pulled and to place an implant. The staff was so supportive of this procedure. They answered all of my MANY questions. I always felt like they gave me all of their attention and that I was their first priority. The staff is so personable and knowledgeable. They have never once made me feel embarrassed when talking about financing options. I am very happy with Northgate Smiles, and would recommend them to anyone.

I was extremely impressed with this office and I was dreading having to find a new dentist, but they really made me fall in love with their staff and even going to the dentist. They are so friendly and welcoming, and they explain everything in detail so you really feel informed about everything going on. My husband needed more work done and they were very thorough and helpful making a treatment plan for him. We are so blessed to have them as our dental office.

I have to say that this is a fantastic place. I have a lot of anxiety about going to the dentist and they were able to keep me calm by explaining everything that they were doing in detail as well as showing me pictures of my teeth! I have to say after visiting Northgate Smiles, I felt much better about my teeth.

I get anxiety about anything dental. This office has really helped me to over come that No matter the situation, they don't judge you. They have been great about explaining options and answering any questions about procedures and billing. I love this office so much that my young daughter is now a patient. They are gentle and precise and couldn't ask for a better dental office.

Having been tortured, quite literally as a child in a dentist chair, I have a deep seated unreasonable fear of dentistry. Working with this lovely group of folks, has really helped. I shared my fear with them and they have been so kind and sweet to me, that I can hardly believe it! I also have a terrible time getting numb and they have some new drug that really works! So although I am still afraid, it's not that gut clinching fear of pain, it's just a mild spasm of anxiety and I can live with that!!! Thank you so much for helping me change the way dentistry works for me.

This was the best dental experience I have ever had. Dr. karla Aylen and her staff are truly professionals in all aspects. I was thoroughly informed of the procedures step by step before they occurred with my approval. I was also given various payment plans. The next treatment dates where at my convenience. I am glad my daughter recommended her dentist to me. Diana F.

One of the most rewarding experiences of my life was having some dental work done at Northgate Smiles in Northgate, Washington. I know what youre thinking; rewarding experience and dental work is an oxymoron (the two dont go together). But its true. Ive had plenty of dental work in my 64 plus years on this earth so I know from whence I speak. Ive even had the experience where the Dentist put his knee in my chest to extract a wisdom tooth (the tooth was wise but he wasnt). But getting back to Northgate Smiles, from the time you walk into its waiting room there is an atmosphere of calm. The dcor is not only tasteful but also reassuring. The professionalism and friendly approach of the reception staff when they greet you further adds to a comfort feeling that everything is going to be alright. Dr. Karla Aylen and her support staff made the whole process of injecting nova cane, the drilling the scraping seamless and pleasant. Did I say getting needles, drilling and scraping where pleasant? Yes I did because it was. In fact, we joked (well I mostly joked) and laughed a lot during the entire process and on both visits. They must have thought me weird to be joking like that but they made me feel so safe and comfortable. Most dentists want to get you in and out NEXT. But Dr. Karla and her staff made it seem as if I was the only patient for that day. She when over and over each procedure many times until she deemed it perfect. This next statement might seem politically incorrect but I will say it any way. I LIKED, NO LOVED THE FACT THAT THE ENTIRE STAFF WHERE WOMEN- HURRAH FOR THEM.
Sincerely, RONALD FAUNTLEROY (Still smiling)

I have been using this dentist for about a month and I have been very happy with their service. They take all necessary steps to make your comfortable while receiving dental work. I've had cavities filled and my root canal plus the deep cleanings. Dr. Aluas worked on an extensive root canal I had about two weeks ago. These professionals have thought of everything. I watched cable with a blanket over my legs as they worked, and actually recieved a follow up call a day or two after the procedure.
I had a great experience here they are very professional and did a great job!

I was unhappy with the fees of the local dentists in Yakima. I now drive a 300 mile RT to go to Dr. Aylen. She got me in right away, and scheduled me in the next day to do prep work. And her fees were so much lower than what I could find here, the drive is still cost-effective.

I have greatly enjoyed going to Northgate Smiles. The front desk staff is amazing. They are so, so nice. Each visit is personal. They make follow up calls after procedures. I have never had better, more sincere interactions at any medical establishment.

Dr. Aylen is very professional. She is pleasant and understanding. I have had a good amount of work done and I don't dread going to see the dentist. I also see Dr. Aluas - and I think she is excellent as well. I appreciate that I can switch between the dentists and not see a change in treatment or professionalism.

About a year ago I had to change my dentist because I got new dental insurance. Fortunately two of my friends recommended me Dr. Aylen at Northgate Smile. I made an appointment and was very happy I did so. Dr. Aylen and her staff are very experienced and skilled professionals and I always feel welcomed there. My teeth are in bad shape (overbite, cross bite, receding gums, deep pockets, gingivitis, damaged enamel, prone to cavities, tons of filings) and need a lot of attention. Dr. Aylen and her dental hygienists managed to keep everything under control and I havent had any new cavity since. All procedures were done with great care and almost no pain and I never have had any problems or needed any additional repairs afterwards. I also appreciate follow up calls after treatment and appointments reminders. I will continue to see Dr. Aylen and I am planning to start Invisalign treatment with her shortly.

It has been quite a while since both my husband and I have received dental services. Though we went at different times months apart, the staff remembered the other spouse and invested interest in our lives. I feel the care we have received is professional, they listened to my concerns and were open to answering any and all questions I had. I feel I have found a place we can work with to maintain our dental health.

Office building on the outside reminded me of dentist building I use to go to as a kid... not a good experience so a little

nervous since I had to change dentist for insurance reasons. Inside was clean and modern with TVs in every room and they

used the same TV for my digital xrays. Little more current than my last dentist.
The hygenist was friendly and did explain everything to me which was nice but I don't know if she really cleanned them as

well as others? I guess because I didn't leave with a sore mouth?

Dr Karla Aylen was friendly but I didn't really talk to her very long. She pointed out that I need a filling replaced and a new

crown. I'm not thrilled about it because of the cost but also because of my last crown experience. She did shave down my last

crown that I got in December (from previous dentist) which did make it fit better in my mouth.

Reception was friendly but I do wonder why the cost was $200 more than the other dentist in December? I'm supposed to be

covered by insurance, in network so don't understand the cost. The previous dentist not in network but also did a crown and

filling....

Getting a crown next week so we will see how this one goes.

well as others? I guess because I didn't leave with a sore mouth?

Dr Karla Aylen was friendly but I didn't really talk to her very long. She pointed out that I need a filling replaced and a new

crown. I'm not thrilled about it because of the cost but also because of my last crown experience. She did shave down my last

crown that I got in December (from previous dentist) which did make it fit better in my mouth.

Reception was friendly but I do wonder why the cost was $200 more than the other dentist in December? I'm supposed to be

covered by insurance, in network so don't understand the cost. The previous dentist not in network but also did a crown and

filling....

Getting a crown next week so we will see how this one goes.

I really enjoyed going there. The location was difficult at first, but once I found it, it was pretty nice place. They have a TV in the rooms to watch while you're getting work done. And the hygienist was informative and friendly

I received fillings from Dr. Goldwire last week. The service I received from her, her assistants, and her staff was quick, efficient and painless.

This place is the first dentists office my kids have gone to. They always seem enjoy the experience. I find the staffing to be exceedingly pleasant.

I've been to many dentists over the years and Dr. Aylen is definitely one of the best and most efficient operators out there. The staff is friendly and organized. I went there for many visits so far ranging from minor cleaning to major crowns. It has always been a delight. Dr. aylen is very good at explaining the procedure and what it entails. I can't say I like going to the dentist, but Northgate Smile definitely makes it easy.

Northgate Smiles is the best dentist I've ever been to. I needed a root canal and they got me in ASAP and where super friendly and welcoming. It's also worth noting that it was my most comfortable experience inside the dentist seat. I really didn't feel much of anything.

The best dental experience ever. First off, everyone in the office is very nice and helpful, which goes a long way. As far as the actual dentistry, they explain everything in depth, make sure you're comfortable at every step of the way, and they even hide the needle until the last second. They really try to make it as comfortable an experience as possible. Thanks, guys!

Northgate Smiles is by far the best dental office in Seattle. Not only was the staff friendly and comforting, but they were also highly skilled and professional. When it comes to dental care, you don't want to mess around with anyone else. I highly recommend Northgate Smiles to everyone seeking the best dental care.

I went to the Dentist after several years of no professional cleanings. They were very patient and explained everything they were doing, making it a very relaxing appointment. I really appreciated their technology and up to date equipment. They gave me multiple options for treatment and my teeth look great! My hygienist Tammy was especially great and easy to talk to throughout the entire cleaning!

I have always hated going to the dentist and have had a few bad experiences that prevented me from going for a long time. The staff and doctors at Northgate Smiles made me feel welcomed and at ease. At other offices, I have often felt tricked into doing procedures that were not essential or I was made to feel embarrassed but that was not the case at Northgate Smiles! I highly recommend going to them!

I have been a patient of Dr. Aylens dental practice for more than three years. Her staff is always very warm, welcoming and accommodating. Dr. Aylen and her staff have worked with me for my general dental needs including veneers and also partnered with my orthodontist throughout my adult orthodontia treatment to ensure my teeth remained healthy throughout treatment. I have always been completely satisfied with all of their services and would highly recommend them.

I have been going to Northgate Smiles for the last two years. I have been very pleased with not only the work, but the cost and the welcoming atmosphere. The initial exams were very extensive after which I able to view xrays on the screen above the dental chair as Dr. Aylen reviewed plans of attack for problem areas. I felt welcomed to ask questions and make choices about my dental care and not just told what to do. The nurses were very gentle, thorough, personable and attentive to my needs while I was in the chair. I am glad to have discovered Northgate Smiles.

Northgate Smiles is awesome. I called on a Thursday trying to get an appointment ASAP b/c my insurance was going to run out and they were able to get me in by MONDAY. Awesome! They were so helpful too and willing to work with me as much as possible. I went in and did a checking and was able to get back in by the next day! Everyone's very friendly, Krystle the assistant is very friendly, always remembers everyone's name and the dentists are knowledgeable, friendly, and comforting. I had a really bad cavity and it HURT when they were drilling out the decay and as SOON as they saw discomfort they immediately stopped asked if I was okay and then gave me ANOTHER anasthesia injection for free of course. After that I didn't feel anything so I was super happy. The assistants, receptionist, and dentists are great I saw 2 different dentists and they were both great. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! :)

I had neglected to visit the dentist for quite some time before visiting everyone at Northgate Smiles. A dear friend of mine went on and on about how wonderful the staff was at Northgate Smiles and how incredible Dr. Aylen was and SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!! Since it had been so long since my last visit to the dentist I had been expecting this horrible news and lectures about poor dental hygiene, but instead I was made to feel at ease. I was not frowned at or looked down on for staying away and I was praised for what I was doing right and educated on what my teeth needed for a healthier future. Well, when they put it that way....how could it sound bad? It turned out I needed a few of my old fillings replaced, and I need to see an orthodontist due to some further complicated issues beyond my fillings. It's alright thought because I feel at ease knowing what my options are in the mean time to take care of my teeth and maintain my healthy mouth. We don't always like what we hear when we go to the dentist, but in this case I felt well educated; understanding what was going on in my mouth and I felt good leaving there. I could not have asked for better dental care providers in all of the staff at Northgate Smiles.

I have been a patient of this office for nearly a year. I originally heard about the office from an online review who stated that the dentists were the best that they had ever been to. I hadn't been to the dentist for awhile and decided to give them a try. I needed to get my wisdom teeth taken out. The office staff were very friendly from the time I entered the office. The hygenist who took me back for my appointment put me at ease and was very attentive to my needs. Dr Aylen was very professional but had an amazing bedside manner. She made sure I was not in any pain and made sure to explain all of the procedures to me. The hygenists and dental assistants were amazing at making me feel comfortable and taken care of. Dr Aylen even called me that night at home to be sure I was doing okay and to see if I had any other questions. I have been to this office several times since then for a cleaning and to do some other minor work. For the cleaning and minor work, I saw Dr. Aluas. She was also very easy to talk with and very professional. She was very knowledgeable and made sure that I understood the procedures and the treatment plan. The office is very up to date with digital xrays, cable TV at each patient chair, and special cameras so the dentists can show patients what needs to be done at a close view. The front desk team make sure to work with you regarding your financial situation and your insurance. I would highly recommend this office to anyone needing a dental cleaning, wisdom teeth extraction or anyother dental work.
