Dr. Vu, who took over from Dr. Bridgman, has met the high standards set by his predecessor. I recently completed a course of care and Dr. Vu was both meticulous and skillful. The treatments were virtually pain free and Dr. Vu was not satisfied until eberything done was as perfect as could be – and this reconstruction was not a piece of cake. The support staff was also high quality and all protocols were being followed. Equipment seemed to be state of the art…generally a pleasant experience – the kind of thing one doesn’t typically associate with visits to the dentist. In short, 5 stars.

I recently visited Summit Dental Care in Seattle for a cleaning, cavity fill and crown replacement. I can’t speak highly enough of how professional, clean, organized and friendly the entire staff is. Upon entering the office the very friendly front desk staff will take your temperature and confirm other COVID-19 precautions taking all the necessary care one would ask for. The front desk staff is beyond friendly and incredibly helpful with walking you through any questions, comments or concerns you might have about insurance like myself. I had visited initially for a dental cleaning and general exam. However after discovering a cavity Dr. Vu walked me through all options without ever pressuring me on any procedures. Dr. Vu has incredible bedside manner and is friendly, personable and upfront about everything he is doing or going to be doing on your teeth. His Dental Assistant’s are also friendly and incredibly competent with their work. Overall I would give this place 10 out of 10. There was not one thing that was disappointing and the entire staff goes above and beyond to accommodate and make sure they are taking all the cleanliness procedures necessary during the COVID-19 situation.

My dentist of 40 years retired and i was referred to Summit Dental and Dr Vu. I was naturally nervous to see a new dentist, but those fears were quickly put to rest the moment I checked in. From the reception desk to the dental assistants, I was made so comfortable by their caring and most friendly manner and how professional they took care of my situation. Meeting Dr Vu was like meeting a new friend. His “bed side” manner is excellent and I immediately knew I was in good hands. He was not only professional and knowledgeable, but very personable. He took time to get to know me, not just my teeth! I feel very lucky to have been directed to this dental office and can’t recommend them enough!

Dr Vu took over the practice from my previous dentist. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Vu’s thoroughness and commitment to making sure the work done was complete and met my needs and expectations. He took the time tdo explain the treatment plan; he worked within my budget; he would not accept anything less than the best from himself and his staff. His patient care is one of the best I have experienced. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a dentist.

I recently moved my business to Summit dentistry due to its location nearby my office downtown, and I couldn’t be more pleased! The hours make it easy for me to book before or after work, and the entire staff was both professional and welcome. My hygienist did great and Dr. Vu’s exam of my teeth was thorough. I loved that Dr. Vu talked me through my options around potential future issues but was realistic and what was a nice-to-have vs an actual issue. He also reattached a permanent retainer that had come loose, and did a great job. To top it all off, he is super kind and friendly. I’ll definitely be back!

I’ve gone to several dentists around the Seattle area but kept switching due to difficult locations or poor experiences, and this is the first time I’ve found a place that I’ll keep coming back to. The location is extremely convenient and the whole team is knowledgeable, friendly, and communicative about what they’re doing and why.

I just had my second visit with Dr. Vu and it was a great experience. After Dr. Bridgman retired, I was concerned I would have to find a new provider. Dr. Vu and his staff are continuing the excellent professional and sterilization practices that kept me a patient for 31 years. This is particularly important given our current concerns. His office and staff follow all necessary protocols to ensure patient safety. The appointment text reminders were very helpful.

Congrats, Yelpers, you just found one of Seattle’s best dentists. I actually look forward to my visits. He is gentle, competent, and conservative. His staff are all terrific. I especially appreciate LinMara’s teeth cleanings. She’s the gold standard in my book. I have steered friends here and they agree with me. At no extra charge, if you show signs of a sense of humor, Bridgman is also very funny. But you come for the excellent dentistry and he delivers. I lived in Hawaii a few years and missed his office. I’m so glad to be back.

I haven’t been to Summit Dental Care but I know Dr. Vu personally and he is an amazing person that I would trust 100% with my teeth. He will make your visit very enjoyable and I know he will take care of you better than his competitors.

Dr. Vu and the team are awesome. My husband and I have visited their office twice in past 8 months and had great experience both times. They are all very attentive and complete their tasks with highest precision. I had few old fillings and dr. Vu replaced them all leaving my teeth whiter and with no pain.
I recommend dr. Vu and their team.

Dr. Vu is an incredibly knowledgable and dedicated professional, with a kind-hearted demeanor that sets him apart from other dentists that I have met. Even his own employees talk about how Dr. Vu makes a unique effort to show a lot of appreciation for their work, which I think is fantastic news. I highly recommend his services if you are looking for a great dentist and a great team.

I’ve been going to this office for almost a decade now – my old doctor recently retired, but I love this place. My first appointment with Dr. Vu was great – I had some filling, and no pain believe it or not, and super efficient. The entire staff is always personable. It’s strange to be raving about a dentist of all things – but I really like how I’m treated here as a person and a patient. Highly recommend Dr. Vu and his staff.

Dr. Vu & his team are friendly, professional, and always put me first! The Summit Dental Care team makes my comfort the priority and ensures I know what my dental care options are and what the best choice for me is. They are conveniently located in Denny Triangle and the extended hours on allows me to get my appointments after work. Update 6/9/20: I saw Dr. Vu last week after his office re-opened. His team is delicately handling patient safety in this post CO-VID environment. I was impressed by the team’s concern for everyone’s safety. My original appointment was during the mandated closure, and thanks to Jessica at the front desk, getting rescheduled was a breeze! I loved the ease and added consideration of safety in the move to all online forms.


Summit Dental Care is an office nestled in downtown Seattle. We strive to provide great care, with a small dental office atmosphere, in the heart of downtown. Dr. NamThien Q. Vu was born and raised in Olympia, Washington, a graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry, and completed his post-doctoral General Practice Residency at UNLV School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Vu’s passions have led him to volunteer his time extensively, both home and abroad, treating a diverse population of patients. In addition to this service, his post-doctoral education has given him advanced training in general dentistry as well as dental procedures such as root canal therapy, implants and oral surgery. His primary focus is delivering the highest quality dentistry in the most caring manner. When he isn’t practicing dentistry, Dr. Vu enjoys spending time with his family and friends, music, and being involved in sports, both as a spectator and a participant. His favorite teams to follow are the UW and Seattle professional teams. Above all else, he is a compassionate clinician who is excited to have this opportunity to build relationships with our patients and care for this community.
