I’d first like to address any concerns anyone may have about the current situation in downtown Seattle: Their office location is very safe, spotlessly clean, parking is easy, and you don’t need to worry about anything!  Now, onto Dr. Emard, Shannon, and the entire Team: hands down, the absolute best service is provided.  Both my girlfriend and I have been coming here for over the last 10 years, and we always have a great experience.  I’ve had a lot of work done here over the years, (crowns, implants, a bridge, a cap) not just routine cleanings, and everything has always been perfect.  They are all professional, warm, and just super nice people!   They have constantly worked with my insurance, financial situations, scheduling around my convenience, and we always have a pleasant visit every time.   Who can say that about going to the dentist?  Do yourself and your teeth a favor, and schedule an appointment ASAP.  And if you’re scared of going to the dentist, have been putting it off, don’t worry, and get in there, they are respectful and gentle with every procedure!

Dr. Emard and her team are wonderful! They make you feel comfortable with every step, and make each visit relaxing and easy! They’ve also been on the cutting edge when it comes to hygiene advances to protect their customers and staff from covid. I’ve been going there for years and love that they are always there to take care of me and make my teeth!

I went to West Edge Dental for a 2nd opinion after I had been told I needed at deep cleaning due to periodontal disease. Dr. Emard was amazing! She took the time to explain everything to me, including her own philosophies when it comes to oral health and how she treats patients. It was concluded that a deep cleaning is not necessary and I am thrilled to not have to go through with that procedure. My appointment was very pleasant and most importantly, I feel that I can really trust Dr. Emard and her office. I have already scheduled another appointment with West Edge Dental and look forward to becoming an established patient!

I am a long time client of West Edge dental.  Whether seen by Dr. Leiker, Dr. Emard, or Kristen, I have always received the finest care.  I have been impressed by the way they bring new techniques and equipment into their service.  And everyone, from  Cathy at the front desk to those dealing with my dental issues, treats me with the greatest kindness.  I feel lucky to to be their client.

I feel protected from corona virus in their space. The dentist is very kind and thoughtful. I had a badly broken up tooth removed this morning. She was going to refer me to an oral surgeon but could see how covid-adverse I was to visiting another place and agreed to do the surgery for me in her office. She performed the surgery painlessly and truly left me feeling more secure than any other dentist has (amazing considering the times). Everyone is very nice and thoroughly professional.

After not visiting the dentist in, errrrrrr – too long, I visited West Edge while in town visiting family.  The facility is state of the art, and every single employee there is top notch.  My teeth never felt so squeaky clean and Dr. Emard is the best. If I lived in Seattle, she would definitely be my new dentist!  Do your teeth a favor, and go visit Dr. Emard and her staff.

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


Kristen and Dr. Emard are the best.  They both genuinely care about provided expert level care and are also wonderfully personable and friendly.  I always feel like i’m in very capable hands. Kristen really listens to my concerns and never makes me feel bad for not flossing.  I can’t say enough good things about them.  Oh BTW the night guard is a can’t miss!  Get one!

I actually see Dr. Emard for my botox and could not be more satisfied. On my first visit, Dr. Emard took the time to chat with me about my best course of action and answered all of my questions – no matter how crazy they seemed. Her “less is more” approach made me feel really comfortable and at ease. She listens to what you want and makes knowledgeable recommendations based on your preferences. I’ve been to see her several times now and always love my results. Dr. Emard and her entire staff are warm and welcoming. I always feel like I’m in great hands

Dr. Jessica and her staff are an absolute godsend. They have literally given me my life back. I had a root canal performed by my previous dentist back in 2013, I met with him in 2015 and told him I was in pain, he did nothing about it. In March 2019 I was in so much pain I couldn’t bear it, and luckily, I found West Edge Dental. Literally one of the biggest blessings to date. I called them and told them I was in pain, they then got me in that day! Even though their schedule was packed. They then took an X-ray and immediately sent me to their Endodontics team. Within a day I was getting treatment for an infected root canal. After two oral surgeries, lots of antibiotics & a beautifully done seal, performed by Dr. Jessica, I feel like an entirely new human. It is because of them I now have my life back. After over 5 years of discomfort, I am no longer in pain and I couldn’t be more thankful for all they have done for me. Thank you WED, you all are absolutely amazing and I’m excited to have your continued care. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I have seen many dental professional over the years, and learned to dread trips to the dentist’s office, but Dr. Emard and her staff have given me a series of reassuring experiences. I have had general cleaning from Jessica, deep cleaning and root scaling/planing from Sherry, treatment from Dr. Emard and Dr. Suzuki, and Kathi has ensured that it all happened like clockwork. West Edge Dental attentive to my interests in the findings of Dr Weston Price and my use of alternative cleaning practices, yet have the latest technologies and instruments to employ when appropriate or necessary. I also appreciate that Dr. Emard and Dr. Suzuki make personal commitments to healthy, active lifestyles, and that West Edge Dental sponsors local Cyclo-Cross races, bike shops, and roller derby. I’m looking forward to seeing my dentist all muddy in CX races this season! I no longer dread the dentist.

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


Arrived – at last!  I have been actively seeking a dentist i like for a good 15 years and am happy i have FINALLY arrived here at West Edge. Instead of my million questions feeling like an imposition, Dr. Emard and the others there (thank you Jessica) answer them before I even ask. (Of course, questions I ask also get answered.) Every person there is equally expert in their roles and that is also very much appreciated. Dr. Emard does very meticulous work in all aspects. What i like most is the implicit and explicit communication from everyone in the office that i am there, i am experiencing what they are doing, and that it matters — like they actually care. Expensive, yes, and I do not have dental insurance. But so is everywhere else, so might as well get what we are paying for

Going to the dentist is never fun but that doesn’t mean it has to suck. TL;DR: West Edge Dental is super accommodating, comfortable, professional, and so much more in the downtown area. I’ve been to multiple dentists and have always got my standard cleanings and exams. It was never pleasurable (not that it should be necessarily) and not something that I looked forward to doing. Most of the previous dentists that I have seen have pretty much treated me decent but it felt like a turn and burn for them. Get me in that chair as fast as possible only to clinically perform dental unpleasantness and be done in time for the next client. West Edge Dental has the most patient, professional and understanding dentists, hygienists, and staff. They treat each patient as if that person was the only person that they would see all day. They do the utmost to make you feel comfortable and they understand that dental work sucks for the patient. They will do whatever they can to make you feel the best one possibly can while people stick their hand(s) and foreign objects into your mouth. As for the work, they have improved my overall oral health substantially. They were absolutely thorough and made sure to explain everything to my understanding related to their professional opinion of my mouthy area. If you work downtown and are looking for a dentist, this is pretty much a no brainer.

I’m the guy that absolutely despises going to the dentist! Anxiety, terror and dread fill my mind, even thinking about going to the dentist! The whole office is just full of happy and helpful people, making my stressful visits to the dentist a whole lot easier! I’ll start with saying that Kathi, at the front desk, is very welcoming and always has a smile. I’ve only ever seen Kristen, for cleanings and she is fantastic! Super friendly and genuinely interested in you before getting down to work. I just discovered that they will use a numbing agent on my gums that makes cleanings a million times better for me!! (highly recommend it!) Thank you! Jessica B is always there to help start out the cleanings and she is great too! The docs are great, they are friendly and nice. (getting repetitive, I know!) They do offer gas for procedures to help alleviate some stress too. They offer headphones for you to listen to your own music while they work too! Overall, if you work downtown and need a great place to get your teeth done, during your lunch hour or afterwork, these ladies are awesome! Go see them!

Lindsay P. from Federal Way, WA (Source: Yelp)


I know this sounds crazy, but I love coming to the dentist every 6 months!  This is not your typical dental office…everything here feels very calming and relaxing.  Everyone here always remembers my name and asks me questions about things I talked about the last time I was in.  I really feel taken care of by the dentists and the staff, and I really enjoy my conversations with the dental hygienists (when their hands are not in my mouth, of course).  I strongly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great dentist and a kind and considerate staff!

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


I have been going to West Edge Dental for about 6 years and have received excellent care. I left another dentist who was always trying to upsell me while I was sitting in the chair getting a cleaning.  I told West Edge when I started that was why I was switching dentists, and they’ve never tried to sell me anything. They just provide solid, excellent dental care.  They have always been very respectful, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend West Edge Dental!!

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


My husband and I both switched to West Edge Dental because Dr Enard was so wonderful. She has a beautiful office and the staff is very friendly. We both appreciated how comfortable everyone made us feel. Dr. Enard is kind, gentle and very thorough. She explains everything in detail to make sure you have a full understanding of what you need/don’t need. We are really pleased with her and her work!

Brandy F. from Federal Way, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen both Dr. Emard and Dr. Leiker at West Edge Dental and have been blown away by their knowledge, care and competency. They have always made me feel very comfortable and have taken the time to answer any and all questions. I even had to be referred to an oral surgeon and while they could have simply passed me off to them, they made sure that my appointments were in order and followed up with me directly after my procedure to make sure everything had gone well and I was being taken care of. The welcoming nature is present in every staff member you encounter. They go out of their way to make going to the dentist as pleasurable experience as possible and that goes far beyond the menu of comfort options they offer.

I have never enjoyed going to the dentist—until now. Dr. Emard and her team go out of their way to turn an otherwise unpleasant and disagreeable experience into a comfortable and educational opportunity to improve my oral health. After an appointment at West Edge dental, I leave feeling refreshed and enlightened.

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


I am a new patient at West Edge Dental and am very happy following my first appointment. The office location is excellent on 1st Avenue near the bus / light rail tunnel and downtown. The new patient experience was smooth and fast as the front desk staff was helpful in getting me started and ready with forms and insurance. The office is beautiful and decorated with nice original art and personal touches by the dentist. The dental hygienist that did my cleaning with was very attentive and efficient making it a pleasant experience. My interaction with the dentist, Dr. Jessica Emard, was excellent too! She is friendly, helpful, and energetic. She took the time to help explain to me what care I may need in the future and what I need to do with prevention and care on my own. She checked me out very positively with clean and healthy teeth. Overall, I felt well taken care of and look forward to coming back for me next appointment.

Lani P. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to West Edge Dental for several years, and, even though I now live between California and Seattle, I wouldn’t consider ever looking for another dentist.  The dentists and dental assistants are very knowledgeable, and everyone in the clinic always makes me feel welcome, greeting me by name.  I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone in the Seattle area looking for a good dentist!

Derek Nathan (Source: Google)


I have been coming to West Edge Dental for at least the last ten years, and I want everyone out there to know that hands down, the absolute best service is provided! Dr. Emard, Shannon, and the entire Team are the most warm, professional people in the business. They always treat me with the utmost respect, have constantly worked with my insurance and financial situations, and scheduling around what’s best for me. And not to mention they’re all just super nice! I have had much dental work here, (implants, crowns, bridges) not just routine cleanings and I have a very pleasant experience every time. Who can say that about visiting the dentist? I would also like to add for those folks out there worrying about the current situation in downtown Seattle: Their office location is very safe, spotlessly clean, parking is easy, and you don’t need to be worried about anything. Have a great visit!

If you (like me) are new to Seattle, you know you need to get your healthcare in order. And if you live or work downtown, you can do no better than West Edge for your dental care. Doctor Jessica Emard, Wendy and all of the staff have taken such good care of me over the past year, and I am very lucky to have found them here. Would highly recommend to a friend 🙂

Danielle F. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Emard is the best dentist I have ever visited. Her staff was so easy to work with and friendly. The location is convenient and her office was clean. Shannon made my appointment over the phone. She was so pleasant and helped me out when I was having trouble with my insurance. I appreciated her calling before my appointment so we could get it all figured out. When I got to the office, Shannon was so sweet and welcoming. Dr. Emard did a new patient evaluation and was very thorough. I appreciated how she explained everything she was doing and talked about how to better the health of my teeth and gums. Julie, the hygienist who did my cleaning was hilarious and made my cleaning easy. She was very gentle during my cleaning and never made me feel like I had awful teeth like another dentist I had in Seattle. I wish I found Dr. Emard and her staff a long time! I certainly will be back!

I recently became a new patient at West Edge Dental. What I enjoyed most about the experience at West Edge Dental was the convenient downtown location, speed and efficiency of the new patient process, friendly front office staff, attentive and gentle teeth cleaning, and a very helpful and informative dentist in Dr. Jessica Emard. She took the time to explain to me her dental approach and preventive care philosophy. She is very friendly, energetic, and engaging. After many years with my previous dentist, I felt very comfortable and well taken care of after my first appointment at West Edge Dental

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


A repeat customer with heart issues. Prior to my heart work, Dr. Emard consulted with my Electro Cardiologist.This helped confirm that I had no outstanding mouth issues, that could negatively exacerbate my heart condition or heart recovery. Putting me first and covering all of the bases, now that’s service! Dr. Emard and her first class staff always go the extra mile to put me at ease by giving me unparalleled top shelf service. Thank you.

P. M. from Palo Alto, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting relatives in Seattle when I developed a toothache. Searching Yelp for a good dentist, I found West Edge Dental which was highly rated. Despite their busy schedule, they took me the same day due to my pain. There was no waiting. Dr. Emard did a very thorough exam and made recommendations for treatment. Since I was only visiting Seattle, she emailed me a detailed explanation and treatment plan to give to my home dentist. In all, Dr. Emard and her staff were very professional and efficient. I would recommend them without hesitation.

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


Dr. Emard and her staff are extremely knowledgeable, gentle, communicative and responsive. On my initial exam, I learned I needed seven fillings redone! I would usually run from a dentist office that told me that on the first visit, but Dr. Emard took photos, x-rays and patiently  explained my numerous questions. To sum it up, the dentist I went to 10 years prior had put amalgam fillings over my silver fillings and the silver fillings were cracking. All of them needed to be replaced as new cavities could form under the cracks (and we later found out that some did indeed have cavities under). All seven are done now and I can post with certainty that Dr. Emard is the best dentist I have ever been to. Thank you to everyone at West Edge.

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


Jessica & Jess are the DREAM TEAM of the dental world. Kind and friendly, gentle, and the most important thing to me was to inform me of what they were doing as they went on with my procedure (tooth extraction). Kathi at the front desk is kind and informative, as well as extremely helpful when it comes to insurance questions, etc… I will be making a permanent change to West Edge Dental. THANKS LADIES!

Kevin Suzuki (Source: Google)


Dr. Emard and her team are first rate. This practice has a team that is very warm, caring, well trained, and patient centered. I find Dr. Emard to compassionate and highly competent as a dental health care provider. Whether you are a regular patient or have not been to the dentist in years this team will make you feel welcome and comfortable. I have been to this practice and now recommend all my friends go to Dr. Emard as patients as well!

Edward Ventura (Source: Google)


Dr. Emard is super gentle on the teeth and gave me a positive outlook on my dental health. She is very friendly and sets the mind at ease. Dr. Emard’s staff is very welcoming and professional. Everyone does their best to make you feel comfortable. Best of all, no one at the office guilts you on your dental hygiene. You are treated like an adult. All comments start with what you are doing right. Improvements are offered without reprimand. You leave without any stress.

Jean-Marcus S. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Just left my new dentist’s office where Dr. Jessica Emard at West Edge Dental made my teeth squeaky clean. LIKE A BOSSSSSSS. First impression of the place was that it didn’t smell, look, or feel like a normal dentist office. No sterile smell. No1987 white washed cabinets. No clinical feel at all to it. In fact, it felt kind of like being in someones condo downtown the way you could look out the windows at the streets and people walking around outside. Second impression was the home made brownies and ice cream that was offered to me as I filled in my paper work. (okay perhaps that is just something I imagine people handing me on a daily basis and in fact didn’t happen. But it should happen at every business.) Dr. Emard used this cleaning tool that I’ve never even seen before. It was some sort of super sonic vibrating water pick that she used to clean my teeth instead of the typical curved metal tool that is sharper than Satan’s horns which dentists just love to jab you with. She was very gentle and normally I leave the doctors office bleeding from every inch of my gums, but not today. I was in and out in a timely fashion and I don’t know why people are so scared to go to the dentist. If they are perhaps they should consider coming here instead. PLEASE OFFER BROWNIES AND ICE CREAM NEXT TIME (think about it. it just creates repeat business)

When it comes down to it. I really don’t mind going to the dentist thaaaaattt much. But I always put it off. Sometimes for years. I make it up in my brain that I SHOULD go but I don’t. I decide that my tooth sensitivity is reason enough to put it off. And then it just becomes this silly little cycle of me talking myself out of going to the dentist. Which is something we all HAVE to do. I made an appointment with Dr. Jessica Emard at West Edge Dental. It was such an easy, comfortable experience that I am absolutely positive there will be no postponing my next appointment (no matter what great excuse I come up with). I know i’m not alone in this & I think a lot of people have this avoidance even more severely than I. But I promise you- I assure you. Dr. Emard & her team are soooo nice, warm & welcoming . The office is soooo pretty. & the location is perfectly perched in Seattle downtown near the pier. They even do those cool digital xrays that are 85% less radiation and you get to see everything right away. Dr. Emard is super considerate, knowledgeable, accommodating & dare I say- even gentle towards whatever it is that you decided in your brain- that keeps you out of the dental chair. I know that insurance & all that stuff gets confusing but Kathi at the front desk knows EVERYTHing about insurance & even if they don’t take your specific insurance- there seems to always be some way to make it work. I feel really boring writing a review about a Dental office- but I really feel that if you are putting off that cleaning or exam- like I always do- you really really don’t have to have that be a “thing” anymore. I promise.

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


Thanks to West Edge Dental and Dr. Emard for their professional care! I have had my share of bad experiences with other dentists previously and can honestly say that this is as good as it gets. The office and its atmosphere are calming, and its people both very friendly and professional. More importantly, I have been returning now for multiple procedures (too much ice cream?) and appointments are always on schedule and without any complications! Kudos for always numbing me (I hate needles) perfectly well on the first try to begin with. From there, appointments are always a piece of cake (sugar-free of course). Recommended for all. Thanks!!

I have been treated by Dr. Emard for almost 3 years. She is an amazing dentist with the rare combination of exceptional clinical skills and a wonderful “bedside” manner. The staff is great, appointments are accessible and convenient (I often go in before work), and the location is ideal. I couldn’t be happier with the wonderful care I have received.

Cassandra R. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


West Edge is great! I have never been a big fan of the dentist and when I had my first appointment here it had been awhile since I had been. No one scolded me for not having gone and everyone was extremely nice. My hygienist was very gentle and I walked away as happy as I could after leaving the dentist. There location is also perfect for anyone who works downtown and wants to go over lunch or right after work. I highly recommend West Edge Dental.
