Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Aryk M. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


In short: The best dental experiences I’ve ever had. Seriously. In long: I needed a dentist urgently – broken tooth acting up – and my erstwhile dentist was WAY far away in another town. Thankfully, the very-efficient and amiable Megan at Dr. Kussick’s office was able to get me in the same day. I’ve had some pretty awful dental experiences in the past, resulting in near-crippling dental anxiety. So hearing that I needed a root canal in any other situation would likely have resulted in heart palpitations and a tension headache. But Dr. Kussick and his staff listened to my concerns, addressed my anxiety and came up with a plan that would get me out of pain and fix my mouth. While I can’t promise that your root canal will be as painless as mine, I can promise you that Dr. Kussick will try his best to make it so. It’s easyish to find a dentist who can do good work. Maybe even to find a dentist who will be gentle and communicative. However, it’s more difficult to find those qualities in the same dentist. If you’re reading this review, then you already have; Dr. Kussick is your guy. I’ve since gone on to get a cleaning and a crown from Dr. Kussick. Speaking of cleaning… both of the hygienists I’ve seen were excellent as well!

Having lived all over the country I’ve had a lot of dentists but none have compared to Dr Kussick. I’ve been his patient for 3 years now. He’s kind, funny, and makes my comfort a top priority every visit. It doesn’t stop there though. His staff are absolutely amazing. They also make my comfort a very important part of my visits. I’ve never enjoyed going to the dentist but these past 3 years I have actually enjoyed going.

EXCELLENT experience! Very professional. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful when it comes to booking appointments, billing, etc.. Dr. Kussick and the assistants do great work and always make sure I’m comfortable and relaxed, whether it’s giving me a warm blanket or just explaining everything in an easy way that I can understand. The office is very clean and they even offer some refreshments while you wait. I HIGHLY recommend if you’re looking for a new dentist. I always used to dread going to the dentist and would get super bad anxiety but that has not been the case since I started coming here.

I’ve been coming here for a couple years now. I’m pretty neutral when if comes to visiting dentists but Dr. Kussick and crew really make you feel welcomed. They’ll take the time to actually get to know you and make you feel cared for. The crew here will actually go out of their way and talk to you and make you part of their family. Dr. Kussick himself is very skilled. I have a pretty bad habit of napping when I’m getting worked on. He’s that good.

These people are amazing. I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and was really nervous to back, but my fiancé recommended them to me. He was in the same boat and said that they did a great job and were really friendly so I decided to check them out. The receptionist, Sierra, is awesome. Very friendly and always on top of communicating with you regarding appointment times, billing questions, things like that. I also appreciate that she always offered me coffee or tea each time I came to an appointment which was three in total so far. My first appointment was X-Rays and a comprehensive exam of my teeth since I hadn’t seen a dentist in so long. Dr Kussick was very thorough and answered all of my questions and also went over exactly what they would need to do in my next visits. He made me feel very much at ease and not nervous at all. On top of that, he’s just a really nice guy and very professional. My hygienist, Crystal, was also great. She also, was very friendly and did a really nice job on my teeth. She made sure I was comfortable throughout the cleaning which was really nice, considering there was a lot of deep cleaning to do. Also, Larisa was wonderful as well. She assisted Dr Kussick during two fillings that I had done. I was also offered some Netflix while they worked on me, which I thought was brilliant. I can’t recommend this location enough, really. If you’re just looking for a new dentist or like me, hadn’t gone in a while and are nervous about it, then see them. I also didn’t have any dental insurance which was worrying since I’m on a tight budget. Sierra helped me get a CitiHealth card so I can make monthly payments instead. On a side note, I also really appreciate the quality of equipment they used which all seemed to be brand new. The rooms and lobby were also spotless. You all rock!!! Thank you so much!!! And also, thanks for the warm chocolately chip cookies at the end of each visit.

My mom had chipped her tooth in the morning and we frantically called numerous dentists to get an appointment to see if we could get it fixed the same day. The receptionists took all of our information and got us scheduled for the afternoon. The office was clean and the environment was extremely comfortable. Being from out of town you don’t know what to expect but I felt very comfortable that my mom was in good hands. My mom came out of the chair with a big smile all fixed up. I would recommend this Dentist to anyone and everyone. The team at Dental @888 is fantastic!

My husband and I are new patients and loved the whole environment of the office. The front office staff was very warm and welcoming. They explained everything extremely well to us. The hygienist Jae did a wonderful job cleaning both mine and my husbands teeth and Dr. Kussick was very kind and informative to us. We have had a couple bad experiences with other practices in the past, so we were extremely grateful to be patients of Dr. Kussick! I would definitely recommend this office!

Greg C. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


State of the art practice. Super nice guy. Highly recommend. Moved up to Seattle last year. Started having some sensitivity in a tooth a few months ago so a friend recommended Dr. Kussick. So glad I went to see him. Teeth are looking and feeling great now. I never write reviews but my experience was so good over the course of treatment that I felt compelled to let other people know that this guy is legit.

Christiana A. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying that I am terrified of the dentist. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate my level of fear at an 11. After not having been to the dentist in nearly 5 years and having tooth pain, I realized that it was time to face the music. From booking my first appointment to finishing up my cleaning, I had an excellent experience. The receptionist was friendly and informative, the hygenist and technician were cheerful and calming, and Dr. Kussick was very professional. I returned for one more appointment (fillings), and got to watch Netflix (Netflix!) while the dentist did his work. Overall, I had a positive experience with Dental@888 and would highly recommend this office.

Leah Eshraghi (Source: Google)


Great experience all around! Friendly staff with great communication. Dr. Kussick and the dental hygienists are great. They do great work, are friendly, let you know what’s going on, make sure you’re not in pain, and keep you distracted with Netflix. They also squeezed me in for a bunch of appointments before a cross-country move. Definitely check out Dr. Kussick’s office if you’re in need of a dentist!

Steph K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Can’t say enough good things about Dr Kussick or his practice. Great quality work, super professional and thorough. Dr Kussick is also really transparent about the work that needs to be done and takes the time to explain it. He is amazingly patient (I’ve had some less then stellar dental experiences in the past and my reticence took some patience to deal with 🙂 … and his staff is every bit as professional, kind, and patient as he is. Wonderful practice. Lucky to have found them.

Leema Z. from Bellevue, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’m pretty much a veteran of this office at this point and I can be honest to say that I actually kind of looked forward to going to the dentist because everyone here is wonderful and so accommodating. Stay awesome dental 888 and definitely keep this place in mind if you work/live in SLU.

Addie E. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Kussick is a fantastic dentist who doesn’t compromise on standards. He is a perfectionist in every way and his team of dental hygienists & staff are all super friendly. The clinic is new and clean and I have already recommended this place to a few friends. The best part — their pricing is very fair compared to some of the others downtown.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Hal Kussick. Upon walking into the office I was greeted by the friendly staff at the front desk and quickly set up for my appointment (I filled in the new patient forms online to save time, but a few things still needed to be taken care of). The wait was a little longer than I would have liked ~10-15 minutes, but you cant really expect immediate service in healthcare these days, so I found this appropriate. I was able to keep entertained by admiring the beautiful interior design as well as the plentiful magazines for patient perusal. When I was called in for my appointment, I met the dental staff who was very friendly and helped me through the many (18) X-rays for first-timers. Afterwards the Dr. came through and was very personable, was very attuned to the patient concerns as well as giving detailed descriptions of the procedures he was preforming. Overall, I found this to a very pleasant experience and I look forward to my teeth cleaning later this week!

Tim M. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had a few painful experiences with dentists and I’m apprehensive every time I go…which isn’t as often as I should. I don’t enjoy going to the dentist, but I do like the clean feeling I have after the hygienist scrapes all that tartar from my teeth. With my infrequent visits, it can be a lot of tartar. And sometimes, though not often, I need a filling. Especially as I get older. I decided to try Dental@888 as I was doubting my previous dentists for various reasons. I liked the reminders Dental@888 sent; for those of us who are busy and electronically tethered, it’s nice to have these reminders. The office is bright, tastefully decorated, conveniently located in the South Lake Union neighborhood, has free coffee and an on-top-of-it receptionist. The hygienist who saw me was conversational and interesting, thorough in her work, careful with my sensitive teeth, and knowledgeably responded to all my questions. When Dr. Kussick saw me he wasn’t rushed, he took time to answer my additional questions, and as we looked at my xrays, explained his thoughts on my existing fillings and places to watch, as well as gum recession, teeth grinding, stress, etc. I left feeling good about my experience, that my teeth were clean and doing okay, that I wasn’t upsold on anything I didn’t need, and that my dental health and well being are what matter most.

Dr. Kussick and his team have a welcoming, COVID-safe practice, conveniently located in South Lake Union. Dr. K and his staff are professional, gentle and thorough. They respect your time, play great music and also provide Netflix to relax you while you get your teeth cleaned. I’m a long-time patient and will continue having my dental work done here.

Thanks Dr Kussick, and his fantastic team for a great experience. From the moment I walked in and was greeted by Samantha, through my cleaning with Anna, and consultation with Dr Kussick, I felt comfortable and cared about as a patient. Anna provided great care and meticulous attention to detail in my cleaning and taught me quite a lot about proper dental hygiene that I was previously unaware of. You can tell she truly loves her job. Dr. Kussick was very thorough and conscientious in his approach to my first appointment, looking out for my best interests. Samantha and Dianna at the front desk always welcomed me with a smile and provided great advice regarding insurance related issues. The patient experience at Dr. Kussick’s office is next level. Thank you all!

Wei L. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


One of the best experience i’ve had. i had a meeting scheduled after this lunch break dentist visit. i shouldn’t have rushed since i have not had my teeth looked at in two years and this was my first time to this time. but when i explained my schedule to Dr. Kussick, he did everything quickly yet still explained my problem areas and next steps very clearly. i referred my husband here right away! almost looking forward to go back for my next cleaning…

Jason B. from Southfield, MI (Source: Yelp)


I can’t stand going to the dentist…..but my recent trip to Dr. Kussick changed all that. The office was really comfortable – the staff polite, welcoming and really friendly, the process for filling out the forms efficient, and the appointment was on time. Dr. K was awesome. He was friendly, made me feel comfortable, was not pushy in trying to sell me any additional services (teeth whitening, etc) and explained everything to me in a way that made sense. It was also extremely convenient if you work in the South Lake Union Area. I would highly recommend this Dentist Office and Dr. Kussick.

Shubham S. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to Dr. Kussick twice – once for a routine teeth cleaning and then for a root canal/crown. Both the times, I had one of the most wonderful experiences working with a dentist. He is very thorough, explains everything very clearly and gives you enough time to ask clarifying questions. Not only that, when I wrote him an email about one of my concerns, he addressed my concern within a couple of hours. I am visiting him again for the rest of my root canal/crown work, and I can gladly recommend him to anyone. Hail to thee, Dr. Hal! 

Megan S. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Kussick was kind in hid bed (chair?) side mannor, showed me pictures of the work needed done, and why it was necessary. With the work that was needed, his staff had a print out for what it would bill for, what the insurance would cover, and what my portion would be, even before I booked the appointment (which made me feel a lot more secure knowing ahead of time what it would be and why).

Logan Swan (Source: Google)


Dr. Kussick and his staff are comfortable to be around, good at what they do, and have never forced me to do anything that didn’t make sense. I never get the feeling that they are looking to just get money out of me like many previous dentists. I’ve been with them for about 7 months and 3 visits now.

Summer Armour (Source: Google)


Lovely experience coming here for regular cleanings and clear correct alignment after my retainer cracked. Dr. Kussick is very nice and professional and great at explaining everything when asked and Shauna is the absolute best and made my experience coming here an overwhelming positive and memorable experience.

Marshall B. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


This is a practice you can trust. There is a lot of trust needed when going to the dentist. You sit in a chair and have someone poke at your teeth for a while. Then the dentist comes in gives you a diagnoses and you sort of have to go with what they say. Like taking your car in, you never know how thorough or how switched on your mechanic is. Well, technology seems to have helped to change that. When I visited Dental@888 I was impressed with how thorough the hygienist was with my teeth. She refused to let a piece of tartar (and there was lots) remain. She scratched and rubbed for quite a while making sure no corner was left unseen. Then some cool UV photos of my teeth followed by an analysis with Dr. Kussick. He quickly spotted a little tooth decay on one of my molars and rather than describe it to me (which would have meant me having to trust what he said) he showed it to me with the UV photos. Super cool. So I need to go back and have this little problem worked on but it seems like no big deal. I know I will be in good hands. + Very thorough, cool use of technology, ultra modern office, free coffee, friendly staff – You may just find you have something in your mouth you don’t want to find. Like a cavity!

Doug K. from Renton, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Kussik for over 15 years. He recetly returned to Seattle and started his new practice. Hal has tremendous experience, takes the time to explain to you all of the options available and provides great treatement all at reasonable rates. ALL OF HIS EQUIPMENT IS BRAND NEW AND STATE OF THE ART. I trust Hal completly. Change dentists right now and go see Dr Kussik. You will be pleased with your decision.

Carmen K. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been to the dentist in a while so I was a little nervous going back. But the experience at Dental@888 and with Dr. Hal Kussick was wonderful. He spent a long time with me going over my x-rays, explaining problem areas, answering my questions and coming up with a reasonable plan to address my dental issues. Not only was the technology state-of-the-art but the team was knowledgeable and friendly. I felt very comfortable and at-ease which is usually a tough thing to achieve at the dentist. Thank you – I really appreciated your service.

Buck H. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent experience overall, with easy scheduling, a top notch staff , a brandnew office space with modern modern equipment [I’m used to older offices with wear and tear and dated gear]. The cleaning was fast, painless and professional. They explain everything, including the tools used and how they work. Dr. Kussick then looked over every x-ray, in detail, explaining what they look for and how to resolve any issues that came up. Very thorough!

Reiley O'Brien (Source: Google)


Great experience, would highly recommend! The office staff go above and beyond to answer your questions, the dental staff are kind and communicative (and skilled!) and Dr. Kussick has done an expert job on all my appointments! I have had extensive dental work (cosmetic and other) here, along with regular visits. It’s refreshing to have a dental provider who takes into consideration your time and the costs – and communicates every step of the way! Great job Dental 888! I will keep recommending you 🙂

Liz O. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Well how-dee-do! I just had a good experience at the dentist??! Dr. Kussick and his staff at Dental@888 in South Lake Union were professional, nice, and didn’t hurt me during my cleaning. Yay!! Going back next week for a little filing work, and almost looking forward to it! If you are looking for a new place for dental care, I would highly recommend.

Suzy S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to Seattle and one of my biggest fears was not finding a good dentist. I found him! Dr Kussick proved to be well educated, kind, and with excellent dental skills. The mouth is a very small place to work and Dr Kussick managed with dexterity to give me painless, precise dental treatments. His assistants seem happy to work with him and reflect his standard for excellence. I can highly recommend Dr. Kussick if you are looking for a good dentist.

Gina A. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Kussick since he opened his office in SLU. He and his staff have taken great care of me and my family. I feel like they truly care about us. I especially love Jae, my hygienist. She is gentle but thorough and keeps me on the right track. I highly recommend them if you are in need of a great dentist. And I can’t wait to get my teeth whitened on my next visit! They use KOR Whitening. I heard it’s good for sensitive teeth.

L. from Redmond, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have found there are good dentists and bad dentists and then there are dentists you go out of your way to go back to. I was particularly impressed when he noticed a small problem with a cavity he put in and offered to repair it free of charge, it sounds simple enough, but considering how many cavities I have had break due to previous dentist incompetence only to be charged to fix it I am pleased with Dr Kussicks workmanship and honesty.

Jevta Lukic (Source: Google)


I’ve been going for over two years now and have nothing but incredible things to say about this practice! The dentist and all the staff are experts and take a lot of time and care to explain and show everything to you. They always make you feel comfortable and well cared for. I’ve had really fantastic results and had them fix up problems from previous dentists that were causing me pain. I’ve already recommended them to numerous friends. Overall, really friendly service, expert care, and great results!

Karin H. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


We have been going to Dr Kussick for many years. This is his new office, after having spent some time working in Singapore. Dr Kussick is incredibly good at what he does, very caring towards his patients and utterly professional. He uses the latest technology for his dental care, yet doesn’t push for unneeded treatments. He has a very balanced and no nonsense approach to dentistry — I trust him 150% with his recommendations. Should you have dental emergencies (which happened to me once), he makes himself readily available to help. Appointments are easy to get, and his staff is knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommend him. And if you work at Amazon, or any of those places in SLU, you have no reason not to see him

Felicia C. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)
