“ I started visiting Dr. Grace’s office for my dental care while I was a front office employee at his practice. Made good sense at the time. I changed careers in 2007, but continue to be a patient at his office. Not because it make sense, but because I like the quality of care I receive. I think the thing I appreciate most about Mark Grace, is that he doesn’t “push” treatment. In the past I have worked for a number of dental offices that would create treatment plans which were hardly necessary, then push that treatment. Dr. Grace (and his associate, Tracy Adams) prefer to be a little more conservative, especially with patients such as myself; patients who experience mild anxiety in the chair. I predominantly receive my treatment from Dr. Adams (I like that she is a bit more preemptive with treatment), but I would recommend either doctor.
“ I’ve been Dr. Grace longer than I can remember, for a reason: he and his staff are excellent, kind and caring. Gina, has been my hygienist for over 25 years. I’ve never had any pain with procedures, always been given choices with timing and care. The insurance works seamlessly.
“ I have been seeing Dr Grace for 10 years! Started when I worked in the same building.
I remember his staff would call me if cancellations for cleanings came up because I could be there in 2 minutes.
Dr Grace told me repeatedly I should have my wisdom teeth removed but he’d never push, just kept suggesting & I finally listened. He gets that finances can play a role & my teeth weren’t bothering me he was just concerned about crowding (which once I noticed is why I finally listened).
He referred me to a great office for that & another great Dr when I needed a root canal (from before I was his patient) redone.
“ Dr. Grace continues to amaze. The fact that he is a “dentist” and yet “tells the truth” simply…. boggles my mind, TBH with you. He tells me to “get over” my obsession with a Hollywood smile and concentrate/spend my money on what *really matters* in life and my teeth are quite fine – even if I am quite insecure about them – and I’m like, these words are coming out of the mouth of a *dentist*?? Hello?? Am I in some parallel universe or did he slip me some of that laughing gas or what?? Dentists, are supposed to be, and from my experience, are money-hungry monsters who enjoy inflicting pain while earning a very nice income and drive extremely fancy cars – not this guy. My mind can’t even wrap my head around it – TBH. He’s a refreshing breath of air in a very…I don’t even have a word to describe how I feel about the dental industry. He’s a true gem. Thankfully genuine dentists still exist on this Earth is all I can say.
“ Dr. Grace makes an otherwise extremely stressful activity relaxing and worry-free. I’ve been going to Dr. Grace for over 10 years (I’d like to say 15, not sure). He is always patient in explaining every little procedure, thorough and very, VERY patient-oriented.
His staff, particularly Gina (sp?) is awesome (if you can book her as your hygienist then you will wish you can get a cleaning more often than the recommended twice a year).
“ Last year, I was in HELL. I went to a West Seattle Dentist (who I am struggling to name for the whole world to see but I am trying to be good–off of California street) , who decided to change a silver filling. He put in a Composite that hardened right away but it turned out I had an air pocket so pain, headache, migraine, can’t hold a conversation, etc. I could not sleep and I had to go back.
That dentist chipped away at the filling and did bite tests thinking the issue might be resolved and NOPE. Pain, headache, can’t talk, swelling, etc. I called the insurance company and they wanted me to…GO BACK TO THE West Seattle Dentist. I told him, he will mess me up more. This went on for MONTHS.
