Kari Chellis

Dr. Kari Chellis discovered the wonders of dentistry through her own orthodontic treatment. After the transformation of her smile and self-esteem, she had found her calling. Dr. Chellis has built our practice on forming bonds and relationships with our patients. She has devoted her work to providing gentle, caring, compassionate family dentistry, as well as cosmetic and restorative dental solutions.

A native of Seattle, Dr. Chellis attended Loma Linda University, where she graduated magna cum laude with her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. Dr. Chellis next earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington, where she graduated in the top 10% of her class. Her devotion to excellence has continued in private practice. Dr. Chellis has been named the winner of Seattle Met’s Top Dentist Award for the last five years.

You and your family are in good hands with Dr. Chellis. She has more than four decades of experience in dentistry, including 25 years as a dentist. Her passion for providing comfortable wellness-focused dentistry has led her to provide a wide range of services, including non-IV sedation, periodontal care, LANAP™ laser therapy, the PerioProtect System, and DNA appliances for sleep apnea treatment. In addition, Dr. Chellis is committed to minimally-invasive dentistry techniques, making Smile Secrets an optimal choice for dental implants, Botox® and dermal fillers, Invisalign®, whitening, and more.

Dr. Chellis is a member of the American Academy of Oral & Systemic Health, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the World Congress of Minimally Invasive Dentistry, and the American Academy of Facial Esthetics.
