We Welcome New Patients
We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, minimally invasive, state-of- the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!
We believe we can help our patients improve the quality of their lives by helping them achieve wellness-centered health. We love to give the gift of self-confidence that comes with the creation of a beautiful smile!
Smile Secrets builds its stellar reputation based on exceeding our guest’s expectations in our quality of care. We deliver comprehensive yet gentle dental care that improves self-esteem, provides peace of mind and withstands the test of time.
A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use minimally invasive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, with a strong emphasis on PREVENTION to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. Starting with children, we have developed techniques and methods designed to eliminate as much as 70% of all future dentistry. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care.”
That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile and your oral health, we’re also concerned about your overall health. A review of your medical history can help us screen for other potential health issues, cross check your medications with dental medications, and work with any illnesses that you have that may impact your dental health.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Washington Industrial Safety & Health Act (WISHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. We have some wonderful creature comforts available such as warm snuggly blankets, heated massage pads in our chairs, amazingly effective topical anesthetic, “Laughing Gas” Nitrous Oxide, and non-IV Sedation as options. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
What sets us apart is our passion for excellence and innovation! Dr. Chellis is proud to have been the first provider in Seattle to offer LANAP laser Periodontal Surgery, and is one of only a handful of dentists who offers a complete Anti-Cavity System to help our guests stop the endless cycle of decay & prevent cavities. Invisalign, Implant Restorations, a philosophy of Minimally Invasive Dentistry, multiple Teeth Whitening Options for even the darkest of teeth, Holistic Care Options, Botox for aesthetics and TMJ disorders, and Dermal Fillers such as Juvederm enhancements are all provided along with Dr. Chellis’ over 20 years of experience creating beautiful smiles through Aesthetic & Cosmetic Dentistry.
