Dr Quaidoo is AMAZING! She is great at what she does and is transparent about giving you options and empowering you to choose. The office is super well decorated and inviting. They've also done a remodel which effectively doubled the floorspace. Grace typically man's the front desk. Whether on the phone or in person, she's super professional and friendly. I'd recommend this practice to anyone.

I hadn't been to the dentist in 11 years and obviously I was a little nervous. She made me feel calm and relaxed and was very gentle. She is very funny and personable and had a wide breadth of knowledge. Icouldn't help but give her a hug before I left, she's the best!

Dr. Quaidoo and her team are AMAZING! I never thought I'd love going to the dentist, and I totally do now thanks to Dr. Quaidoo. She is extremely smart, kind and explains everything so thoroughly.

I've been a patient for a few years now, and this is the healthiest my teeth and gums have ever been. I am beyond grateful and can't recommend her enough!

Dr. Quaidoo is an exceptional dentist. She is personable and knowledgeable. I went in for a routine cleaning and exam, and she addressed cosmetic concerns that I've been self-conscious of for years. She didn't push any unnecessary treatments.The office setting felt welcoming and intimate, I was able to ask questions and Dr. Quaidoo helped me understand all of the procedures and options. I think I've found my new dentist here is Seattle.

I was very pleased with my visit at Dr. Quaidoo's office. The staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Quaidoo herself is lovely. She helped me weigh the pros and cons of some cosmetic procedures I'm interested in. My teeth feel greatafter the cleaning! I also want to mention that the office decor is colorful and home-like which made me feel relaxed and comfortable.

I needed fillings (I known I have needed them for a while) but I was avoiding the dentist because I had a terrible experience years ago where I wasn't numbed up enough and felt EVERYTHING. That experience has made the dentista necessary evil for me. Dr. Quaidoo let me know I needed those fillings and I expressed my fears & reservations about the entire process. She was very reassuring about her approach and when it came to the procedure, she made sure I was appropriately numbed up and made sure she checked in with me the entire time. I didn't feel a thing - I actually DOZED OFF during the procedure it was so painless and easy. That was a first! Take it from me, you want her as your dentist. If she can make a guy who hated the dentist fall asleep during a procedure that used to give him major anxiety, she can take care of any dental issue you have!

I was late and Dr. Quaidoo did a great job getting my paperwork completed and accommodating my dental needs. Also her hygienist wasn't there so she did my cleaning. Super gental, and was considerate of my sensitive teeth. The best teeth cleaning I've ever had!

Traffic was dense, so Alberta was a bit late. I didn't mind, it's bound to happen in Seattle. The receptionist was friendly and Alberta was very clear about what the state of my dental health is, what the best course of action is, and what the costs will be.
