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

Michael M. from Evans, GA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Leonne’s office is a wonderful experience for a dentist! I knocked one of my front teeth out when I was quite young (ten), so I have apprehensively been to the dentist many times over the past forty years. The care and sensitivity to cleaning and making my experience a positive one is wonderful. I recommend her office tremendously. Michael

Dr Leone’s office has always been calm, professional, and reassuring – and as someone with a lot anxiety around dentists, I can say: this is hard to find! She and her staff provide a level of integrity, kindness, and thoughtfulness into their care, and I for one will likely never go anywhere else.

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


I hate going to the dentist and have been seeing one that is in my office building for years only for the convenience. After my first visit to Dr. Leone today, I’m done with my old dentist. Dr. Leone and her staff did a much better job with way less stress. Dr. Leone met with me briefly in her office first to go over my history and concerns. As dentists make me super nervous, I preferred that to hopping right into the chair. I tend to panic during cleanings but the dental hygienist, Amy, was super gentle and she did an amazing job at getting stains off my teeth during the cleaning. I can’t stop looking at them in the mirror! They look so much better! Why did it take me so long to leave my old dentist?!! No one offered me a hand massage as other reviewers have mentioned (hopefully next time!) but I did enjoy the headphones and the option to watch tv or listen to music. And everyone here was super nice. No one shamed me for the condition of my teeth (they actually said nice things!) or made me feel like a bad patient for being excessively nervous. Those things always happened at my old dentist. I will never be happy about going to the dentist, but Dr. Leone and her staff made it completely manageable. I wanted to run around my office after my cleaning and tell my co-workers to go here rather than the place in our building! Really great!

I am one of those people who is rather dental-phobic and have a very uncomfortable and stressful experience in the dental chair.  Dr. Leone was recommended to me through family, so I made the switch.  I could not have been more happy with the experience!  From the moment I walked into her office, I was put at ease.  She and her staff were outstanding.  I could not offer higher praise for the level of service and care I received.

This is the best dentist experience I’ve ever had. The reception staff is more than kind, Dr. Leone runs very organized operations, and her communication during exams is excellent. Amy the hygienist has extraordinary skill with sensitive patients, and is fun to talk to! I never thought I’d look forward to my dental cleanings, but with them I do. Thank you to all the staff at Dr. Leone’s dental practice, I wish you all the success!

Dr. Melissa Leone & her team are ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I have a very intense fear & anxiety of dentists … to magnify the situation I am currently in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy. So, not only did I compulsively think about my own anxiety before the procedure — well, (of course) I also worried about the safety of my new, little child. Dr. Melissa Leone went ABOVE, & BEYOND by providing excellent care & a remarkable bed-side manner that will soothe any discomfort. She even took the time to personally answer an email communication that I delivered a day before my appointment, while I was at home worried about whether or not I would be able to manage my anxiety during the appointment. The trust developed between a Dentist and a patient is (in my own opinion) one of the most delicate, & difficult to establish care relationships in the medical professions. Dr. Melissa Leone & her team get an A++++ in my book!!

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


I came in with a swollen gum and a sore tooth and was treated quickly, kindly, and with care to make sure I was comfortable throughout the exam and X-rays. Melissa and her staff were really nice and I felt that they went above and beyond making sure cleaning protocols were done with patients and themselves. At this particular moment in time that’s absolutely A Plus in my book! If you need a dentist definitely look here!

Alessandra Beck (Source: Google)


DDS Melissa Leone and her staff are the best! They provide a quality service, differentiated and personalized for each patient, always listening to patients’ questions and concerns with care and attention. They are extremely kind and I do not exchange DDS Melissa’s office for any other!

With Dr. Leone I’ve finally found a dentist experience that I really like. She and her staff are all so kind and calming, making me feel very comfortable. Even though I’ve moved across town and probably have to pass dozens of dental offices to get to hers, I haven’t even considered switching to a closer practice.

Joe W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have been customers of Dr. Leone for about the past 10 years and we can highly recommend her.  She has a very gentle, communicative and empathetic nature to her.  She is very patient and always has time to thoroughly explain what she’s doing or what treatment options are available.  She always treats you as a valued patient, not as a set of teeth to poke at.  Her hygienist Amy could not be friendlier and I always walk out of my appointment with a smile.

Jenni S. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


My dental anxieties are beginning to ease! I just switched over to Dr. Leone’s office (from an already top notch dentist I would recommend anyone too). My husband has been seeing Melissa for years, and talked me into switching over (much more convenient to where we live). My general anxiety is always off the charts because of PTSD. And dice dental offices are not known for being relaxing, I am always going to be skeptical. Parking was not as bad as downtown Seattle, but it was not the easiest either. The office is easy to find and access. The atmosphere is professional yet very calming, aesthetically. Everyone is nice and engaging, but not overbearing. I had the gentlest cleaning/exam of my life. Dr. Leone was wonderfully compassionate and personable. I will be sticking with this group!!!

Nicole Conrick (Source: Google)


For me and my family, this is more than a general dentistry, but a group of friends/family. They genuinely care for the people that walk through the door. The space is lovely, they go the extra mile asking if there is anything else they can do, and are experts in their field. Dr. Leone is gentle and kind and you don’t feel like she is ever rushed. She wants to hear about your health and if there is anything they can do. I can’t imagine going anywhere else for my dental needs!

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


Is it weird to say I LOVE going to the dentist? I’ve been seeing Dr. Leonne for over five years after a friend recommended her when I first moved to Belltown, and I’ve been a regular patient ever since (even making a long drive when I’ve moved a bit further away.) I can’t rave enough about how great this office is — everyone from the front desk staff to the hygenists to the recommendations Dr. Leonne give are gentle, nice, and considerate. Beyond your typical cleaning — which comes with a numbing mouthrinse if you choose, so you aren’t in pain for an hour and they can get a little deeper — they also allow you to listen to music (just hop on their wifi if you want to stream your own via Spotify or whatever!) while you’re getting your teeth cleaned, and you can also opt for a hand massage. I actually fell asleep once I was so relaxed! This office is definitely more “Zen” than your typical dentist, which makes coming in for a cleaning or even a more invasive procedure feel like going in for a massage. (Well, maybe like a physical therapy massage….)

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


Dr. Leone is the best. Super skilled, super smart, very reasonable, conservative when recommending procedures, attentive to your comfort while in the chair, up to date on modern techniques and methods, and keeps detailed records to monitor your dental health over time. I rarely recommend anything to anyone but she really is a great dentist.

Molecule W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going here for years, and I finally feel like I have a dentist (and dental staff) who I feel comfortable. X-rays in your chair, immediately on the computer for the dentist to review, arm massages while cleanings, and over-all a relaxed professionalism that is evident in everyone who works here. I never feel chastised or like a bad child when I see Dr. Leone, she just gently reminds me how to brush and floss if I’ve got some buildup.

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


I walk past Dr. Leone’s office every day on my way to the office. Earlier this week I broke a tooth and needed immediate help due to a pending trip out of the country. I gave the office a call and was sitting in a chair and being checked out within two hours! Dr. Leone and her staff were kind, helpful, and gentle. I’m not the best dental patient due to some bad experiences as a child many decades ago. They took great care of me and I am looking forward to becoming a regular.

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


These folks are awesome!! I’ve been in a couple of times recently for some long over due dental work. I was recommended by a friend. I’ve had a total of three visits, one was a cleaning, two were for getting some cavities worked on. My cleaning was done by the dental assistants, and everyone was very friendly. I was concerned since I had a dentist recommend a deep cleaning a couple of years ago, and a friend mentioned that I should get a second opinion before just saying OK. I didn’t follow up with it, and was nervous about my initial visit to Dr. Leone’s office. After the initial inspection, it was determined that a deep cleaning wasn’t necessary, and that, a standard cleaning would be fine. Dr. Leone’s office performed the cleaning, all went well. When I came in to have my teeth worked on, I also had a great experience. I am not a fan of needles, and was surprised when I never even felt the anesthetic being applied. I never felt any pain from the drill, and I didn’t feel the filling afterward. I’ve had them in the past where I could feel the filling like a little lump between my teeth, but that wasn’t the case this time. They also supply you with headphones, and a TV to watch while you are having work done. At one point during the procedure, I actually fell asleep. I know this, because I halfway snored myself awake. I have never fallen asleep while a dentist was working on my teeth. Greatest thing in the world. I can’t say enough nice things about this practice. Again, the people were nice, the work is great, no pain was felt, and as an added bonus, I literally got to take a nap. I will have to go back for one more procedure, and don’t have any hesitations about doing so.

I was referred to Dr. Leone by my endodontist and had an awesome experience. The staff was all very knowledgeable and extremely kind. The office is very nice and they provide an almost spa like experience. Dr. Leone took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I was able to ask all of the questions I had. She has TV’s in front of every chair (on a wall mount that can move so you can see it while you’re laying flat!) and provide headphones and give you control of the remote. For me at least that really helped pass the time. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who asked.

Dr. Leone always explains any dental issues and thoroughly answers questions that I might have as well as provides complete information about options for treatment. As she is working, she explains what she is doing and is very conscientious about any discomfort or concerns I have. I recommend her MOST highly and have referred friends…I feel completely confident about her care and I’m a hard dental patient to please!

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


Best experience at the dentist that I’ve ever had! Dr. Leone was very nice, she is also knowledgeable and very good at communicating what was going to happen with my dental care.  The hygienist and the dental assistant were very nice and knowledgeable as well.  It was also the nicest dentist office I have ever been too.  I definitely recommend Dr. Leone’s office for dental care!

Jessica W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Leone and her staff to everyone, and especially to any person who struggles with dental experiences. A series of traumatic medical procedures (including dental) left me paranoid to go to the dentist. I reached a point where I stopped going altogether because I could not cope with the anxiety. After two years, a tooth began to have sensitivity and I knew it was time. Words cannot express strongly enough my deepest gratitude to Dr. Leone and her staff for welcoming me back to the world of dentistry. They have all worked together, and with me, to help me through four procedures now, without a hitch. (As long as you don’t count my trying to escape to the bathroom a hitch!) I experience an overall sense of patience, understanding, and excellent communication while under their care. There is room and time for questions (none too silly), and I feel no judgement about my shaking body as I tremble in the chair. There is no reason to tolerate less than excellent dental care. I am so incredibly thankful that I finally realized that, and that I found the best dental care in Dr. Leone and her staff. They are kind, patient, gentle, knowledgeable, quick, precise, and good communicators. Thank you Dr. Leone and staff for changing my perspective on dentistry, and for doing AMAZING work!

Deanna W. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t believe a Dentist can be so wonderful! This was the most thorough dentist appointment I’ve ever had. They not only clean your teeth but fill you in on every detail of your gums, teeth etc. I left there so happy because I knew I’ll never neglect my teeth ever again. And the hand massage during the cleaning didn’t last a few minutes, it lasted the WHOLE cleaning! I’m amazed with Dr. Leone and her staff. WOW!

Sara Mussa (Source: Google)


Dr. Leone and her staff have truly provided me the highest quality care each and every time I visit the office. From routine dental cleanings to filings, I always leave the office happy with the service provided. The office is clean, cozy, and welcoming. I would highly recommend Dr. Leone to family, friends and strangers.

Jon Kryman (Source: Google)


My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Leone for several years and couldn’t be happier. She and her staff are very professional and always make the ‘dental experience’ very pleasant and relaxing. If you need to have a cavity filled or another more involved procedure, fear not ! Dr. Leone is very gentle and the whole procedure will be over before you realize it.

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


Finally a dentist I look forward to visiting! Words cannot describe how much I felt appreciated as a new patient of Dr. Leone. She is thoughtful, attentive and comforting when it comes to patient consultation as well as sitting in the dreaded chair. The chair is a whole new experience! Her teeth cleaning tools are less invasive and the hand massage was truly divine. Wearing glasses to block out the bright lights along with the option to watch TV was helpful, too. This is a dental practice who truly understands patient comfort. I look forward to going to the dentist again and never thought I would feel that way.

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


Melissa and her staff are out of this world AMAZING. I have never experienced anything like this. I cannot say enough good things about the excellent, everything, i receive every time i have an appointment. Consistency, incredibly welcoming, super efficient, such nice people and the dentistry and cleaning is so gentle and very well done. Melissa Leone is top notch as a dentist and person, and she has a team that reflects her commitment to her field and personality. Well done! I’m so glad you are in Seattle. Congratulations for setting up and providing the most excellent service i have ever experienced in my 50 years of seeing dentists. mary m

Amy M. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Leone and her staff for 6 years and couldn’t be happier with the service and friendliness. They use up to date equipment, really consider the comfort of the patient, and suggest procedures only when necessary. I recommend all my friends who are looking for a dentist in the downtown area to give them a call.

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


DDS Melissa Leone and her staff are the best! They provide a quality service, differentiated and personalized for each patient, always listening to patients’ questions and concerns with care and attention. They are extremely kind and I do not exchange DDS Melissa’s office for any other!

Let me start off by saying how much I hate visiting the dentist. That being said, Melissa and her team make it as pleasant as it could possibly be. They’re professional, organized, super friendly and honest. To elaborate a bit, text message reminders for appointments, confirmed by replying with a “c”. Convenient. I had a filling that had broken off after getting one done there and Melissa and her team scheduled an appointment, and took care of it with no charge. Honest. They’re good about letting you know what’s going on while they’re doing it, and make it as pain free as possible. They really take their time to do excellent work. I don’t write reviews, but this office is by far the best I have ever gone to, which includes about 6 dentists. Highly recommend, if you’re thinking of switching dentists, this is the place.

Stephanie Teeter (Source: Google)


Previous to seeing Dr. Leone and her staff I hated to visit the dentist. I’ve had a strong fear of needles and dentistry in general since I was a kid. Now I don’t mind going and I might even go so far as to say I look forward to my visits. She and Amy and so gentle and caring. They have really taken my anxiety away surrounding dental care and I am so appreciative of that! Highly recommend Dr Leone and her staff.

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


Best dental experience ever. Even if I move I will make the trek to continue to go here. I once had an extreme fear of dental work but it’s almost completely gone. The staff always makes me feel welcome and at ease. I had a long list of complaints and fears from past dentists. They listened to all of these at my first visit while getting me all set up. And since then they have made sure none of these complaints ever happened to me again. Serene colors and a comfortable setting make it feel less like a dental office. And the best feature? Getting to pick free add-ons to your appt, like headphones for TV, hand/arm/neck massage, and in some cases a smoothie. This place not only has completely changed my view of what a dental visit should be but has also made me feel 100% confident in taking care of my oral hygiene. In fact I come to get my teeth cleaned 3-4 times a year. Yeah, they’re that amazing.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Leone’s since moving to Seattle in 2010. She’s great — highly skilled, empathetic, and conservative in her management of dental issues. The office is efficient; they are on time, and each person adds to the positive experience of being a dental patient. I highly recommend Dr. Leone; she’s the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Stefanie F. from Redmond, WA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough great things about this place. I first found this place (4 years ago) as I used to live on the same street, but now I live in Redmond and my husband and I both commute 4 times a year to come here and we always will as long as they exist. The location is decent. Not the easiest to find parking but there is free street parking so can’t complain. However come a few minutes early to find parking. The waiting room has a nice tv, great magazines, they offer tea, and yummy granola bars. The front desk check in always has a nice professional behind the desk. They ask you to fill out a paper with options for your treatment, options differ with each treatment type but they go a little like this: paraffin hand dip, head massage, hand and arm massage, laughing gas, numbing mouthwash, headphones for direct t.v, a smoothie at the end of appt. The office is clean, very modern and high tech. I watch tv the whole time I get a service and it’s super comfortable since I’m also getting a hand massage at the same time. Dr. Leone is super friendly, beautiful- I mean you want a dentist with a great smile right? She doesn’t just drill out all your cavities. She has had all my cavities on “watch” and only drills if necessary. I also do use the prescription (expensive) toothpaste, but also haven’t had to fill any cavities for 4 years either. I had a tooth break completely once and they were able to get me in right away and made a temp crown immediately and tried to work around my needs even though it was Christmas time and hard to get appointments in. The hygienist is incredible. I have sensitive gums and she is so great with me and my little tiny mouth. She is so good about cleaning and keeping the polish right where it needs to be and not in my throat. So I don’t even taste the paste when she works. So great! The whole staff is friendly and calm. No better place to go for your shinny whites!

Kevin J. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I am not someone who generally likes/trusts dentists. I knew I needed to have work done and I was referred here. Needless to say I was astonished and surprised that I was treated so well and taken care of. I went in thinking it would be the same old experience and left feeling amazing! I would happily return to have other work done.
