Dr. Bennett and Dr. Kirkland are great. Very easy to communicate with and kind and professional. Dr. Bennett is extremely dedicated to her practice and both her and Dr. Kirkland provide exceptional dental work. Their hygienist, Colleen, is amazing and her scaling skills are remarkable. She is kind and gentle, professional and does a thorough job. She is very professional and has great communication skills and is very knowledgeable. The staff is very friendly and the office is very clean. I highly recommend Northshore Dental.

At Northshore Dental, everyone here is a professional and you are treated professionally and also as a family member. I have never felt more comfortable anywhere else like I do feel at Northshore Dental. I highly recommend this dental practice and I give 5 full Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sorry to hear about Maria.  I just have a dental visit today.  There is a new Dental Office Manager now.  The receptionist that Maria C. mentioned has been gone since early September of this year.  The new manager took care of me. Being a senior citizen patient, she listened to my financial limitations.  She was able to give me senior discount and some other discounts allowed in the practice. She let me feel that she is concerned about my well being, dental treatment service wise and beyond.  I shared to my spouse the very positive experience I got from the new manager and to the rest of the Dental staff at Northshore Dental. We are both happy for this happy turn of event.  Thank you very much.

Super helpful and friendly staff! The receptionist Kayla is super helpful and was great at communicating with me when we were resolving an issue with my insurance. I also recently had a tooth extraction that wasn’t covered by my insurance and they worked with me to make sure it was affordable, as well as a quick and painless process. Would highly recommend for anyone in the area!

I am so happy and relieved that I found this dental office. I had gone to another dentist for 30 years, but I moved, so I had to find another dentist. I knew that I urgently needed major work on two teeth and felt anxious to find a dentist that I could be comfortable with, and one that I could build a trusting medical relationship with. I had cleaning by the dental hygienist. I was treated by both Dr. Bennett and Dr. Kirkland and their assistants. I appreciate the time and explanation that was given to me and my many questions about the procedure and treatment I was to receive for a tooth extraction and bone graft and also a crown on a second tooth. With clear explanation I was able to make a decision about my preference of which type of procedure to have. I feel confident in their professional service and trust their advice. All the staff here are friendly, attentive, and professional. The overall atmosphere is clean, calm and comfortable. Kayla at the front desk is upbeat and knowledgeable about the different insurance coverage limitations. I will return for all my dental needs!!

The staff here is amazing, start to finish!  Kayla runs the desk and is very welcoming and thorough in covering any billing questions I had.  Colleen handles the dental hygienist duties and is wonderful, I always look forward to our one sided conversations . The doctors here have each been caring and great to work with.  Getting any work done on your teeth can be stressful but this group alleviates that and makes it a low stress experience!  I highly recommend them and will remain a loyal patient!

I have been a patient of Dr. Bennett for over 20 years. I have always received great service and never have had any problems. My teeth and gums are still in good shape with the help of Dr. Bennett and her staff.

Karen is by far the best dentist I have ever had! I absolutely feel very taken care of- she is thorough , extremely professional, gentle and all around wonderful! Been seeing her for years! The BEST.

Dr. Bennett is terrific. My experience has been great. She and her assistants have been taking care of my teeth for about 5 years now. I’ve been lucky enough not to have any problems with my teeth so I can’t speak to that aspect. I usually have many questions which she has always been happy to answer.

The staff was very nice, the doctor did a great job on what turned out to be a difficult, stubborn extraction. The set up so as to keep patients safe was fantastic! I definitely would recommend them for all dental needs!

I have been a patient at Northshore Dental for almost ten years and have had nothing but positive experiences. Recently I had a new crown break and was able to call Dr Bennett on the weekend and have the problem resolved quickly. I can confidently recommend Dr. Bennett and her staff to my friends, clients and Family.

Myself and family have been going to this dental office for years and love the entire staff! We have received excellent dental care from Dr Bennett and her staff over the years and highly recommend them. I actually look forward to my cleanings and visiting with the staff twice a year – it’s a safe and welcoming place!!

Our whole family has gone here for years. We love the entire staff. They work hard to make my kids comfortable. They go beyond what is required to work around a family’s busy schedule for appointments, and really make you feel welcome in their office. Highly recommend to anybody looking for a great dentist!

Northshore Dental is the best dentist, hands down. Their staff are friendly and welcoming (and they always remember your name!). Colleen, my regular hygienist, is amazing! Super friendly, funny, warm, and does a great job cleaning my teeth. My parents also both go to see her and they love her as well! I have never had a bad experience here – I have even had a couple of cavities filled during my time going here and the experiences have been quick and essentially painless. I have seen all of the dentists here at one time or another, but lately I have seen Dr. Kirkland and she is very professional and thorough. I cannot recommend Northshore Dental enough!!

Sheryl H. from Bothell, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Northshore Dental for well over a decade. I always have an excellent experience whether I’m there for a cleaning, fillings or other issues. The staff is kind, friendly, helpful and very professional. I always get an excellent cleaning and leave the office feeling very well taken care of. I highly recommend Northshore Dental!

Marylou F. from Kenmore, WA (Source: Yelp)


I AM A VERY HAPPY PATIENT!!! Dr. Bennett & Colleen, the hygienist there took time with my exam and cleaning unlike with my former dentist where in they are always in a hurry. Dr. Bennett listened with what I wanted to happen with my oral health and had given me an honest to goodness recommendation. Assistant Danniel was warm and helpful too. Manager Miea was patient & knowledgeable too in explaining my insurance coverage and my co-payments. Place is very clean and warm. I will definitely be staying with Northshore Dental and will tell my family and friends to come here too.

These folks are, as always, good at what they do. If you have special requests, like I hate the flavor bubble gum but I love the flavor of mint, they’ll clean your teeth with your preferred flavor. And they come close if they don’t. And next time you show up they’ll have the one you asked for!

I went to the dentist for the first time in an embarrassingly long amount of time. I have a fear of dentists after a negative experience as a child which has kept me away for years. My husband however went in and had a really good experience. It was such a good experience he encouraged me to go in and get my teeth looked out. I’m glad I did. The staff was incredibly friendly and worked with me over certain fears I had. It was a great experience and I left feeling well taken care of. I can not recommend this place enough. My only regret is that we are just now discovering this place right before we move out of state. Don’t let this by you!

Both Drs Bennett & Kirkland are awesome. Colleen does great at cleaning our teeth & communicating with the Drs about what she fines. Both Drs are easy to talk with and communicate what they see and recommend treatment plans that are necessary, along with what may be needed at a later date. If your looking for a dentist, give them a call you will not be disappointed. C. Hughes.

I have undeniable LOVE for this place!!! Everybody is so cool and friendly and I always have a wonderful time when I go! How often do you hear about a ‘good time’ at the Dentist? No I don’t get gas either!

It’s a very relaxing dental office. The staff is very friendly. Appointments seem to be on time.Dental hygienist cleans teeth without stressing out my gum line. They make you aware of any problematic areas of your teeth and gums.

A very big thank you to both Dr. Bennett and Dr. Kirkland for working with my children to make their experiences pleasant. Thank you Danielle for holding their hands:) Our family appreciates the smiles, friendliness and relaxed feeling we receive when visiting. It’s quite a change from other dental offices. I love seeing Kayla at the front desk! Not only is she friendly, she knows that office inside and out. My entire family looks forward to seeing Colleen, the hygienist. She is wonderful! I highly recommend Northshore Dental.

Thank you Colin hope I spell it right she clean my teeth, and thank you doctor Kirkland, and doctor Karen Bennett. God bless all of the kind people that work here and made me feel save.

They were very prepared to give care during COVID. Wonderfully pleasant staff. Prompt with schedule and painless teeth cleaning and comfortable filling of tooth. Dentist explained before she began the filling process and then stated what she was doing at each step. Excellent teacher and dentist.

Front desk manager, Kayla, went out of her way to work me into their busy schedule for an assessment of my urgent dental issue. Dr. Alexa Kirkland was kind enough to see me without an appointment to assess my urgent issue with a stressed, decades old root canal. Office staff, support staff, and the professionals were friendly, courteous, and sympathetic. I highly recommend for family or friends.


Welcome to Northshore Dental; the area's newest, state of the art dental center. Christopher Kindem and his wife, Karen Bennett D.D.S. offer a full range of aesthetic dental services in a friendly, unhurried atmosphere. We pride ourselves in maintaining the highest standards in materials and techniques through continuous education. Stop by and meet our dedicated staff in our lovely new facility. Dr. Karen Bennett was born and raised in South Florida. She received her dental hygiene degree and worked for ten years as a hygienist. With encouragement from other dentists, she decided to continue her education. The brochure from the University of Washington Dental School was too enticing-Mount Rainier in the background. She applied, was accepted and the rest is history. "I enjoy the challenge of helping patients overcome their dental concerns through gentle dental care. The reward of seeing a patient happy with a comfortable visit or enjoying their bright new smile gives me great satisfaction. The Northwest is truly a great place to live. I am glad to have fallen for that University of Washington brochure."
