Simply fantastic 6/14/2011

I have been a very happy patient at Fremont Dental for over 10 years. And I have recommended my family members and friends to the establishment and they tell me how happy they are with the staff and the Doctors, Dr. Park and Dr. Kim. I am not sure about some of the reviews. Unlike some of the reviewers, I want my dentist to inform and advise me when need arise with my dental needs. I have had other dentists before coming to Fremont Dental and they don't even hold the candle to them. I think they are "Simply Fantastic!" S. Davies Seattle more

No trust. 9/22/2010

My cleaning was very good, but I was so dissatisfied with my billing experience that I called a lawyer and my insurance company. Short story: Scheduled a cleaning and they decided it was a periodontal cleaning, which my insurance doesn't cover at 100%. They told my insurance company that I signed a treatment plan and that it was thoroughly explained that they were doing periodontal work. Wrong. I was given the treatment plan *after* my first cleaning was done and it was given to me as an estimate for future treatment (fillings) that I'd asked for the cost on. Other problems: Dr. Kim told me I needed fillings (I currently have none). When I questioned the need, she acted annoyed with me and eventually "compromised" by saying they could clean the "worst" tooth and then see if it needed a filling. What? Why would you tell me I need 4-8 fillings (and try to schedule them) if you're not sure I have cavities? When I asked her flat-out if I had fillings, she wouldn't answer. I don't view fillings as preventive treatment - neither does my insurance company. Also, I was told over phone I could request x-rays from my previous doctor the day of my appointment. When I got there, was told I needed x-rays NOW for proper exam. I said I didn't want the unnecessary expense and was told, "But your insurance covers it." I resisted the x-rays, and they consulted for 15 minutes then came back and told me yeah, we can't advise you on your tooth health without x-rays. They took a full-set. Then Dr. Kim never reviewed my x-rays with me; she just told me I had "healthy" teeth - then five minutes later told me I needed all my molars filled. Does that make any sense? It's a shame because this place is super close to where I live, which is why I ignored the other bad reviews. But I'm not clueless about what a good dental experience looks like. The convenient location and excellent hygienists don't compensate for the fact that I don't trust Fremont Dental. more

Hold on to your wallet! 7/28/2009

I chipped a tooth and was looking for a dentist close by to fix it and then likely take care of some long overdue other stuff. Dr. Park's office was able to get me in the next day, which seemed great. And the front desk staff was pleasant to work with. However, Dr. Park made me incredibly uncomfortable (as in another review) - popping in and then leaving me lying to stare at the dental tools while she finished up with someone else. Then she came back and launched into her sales pitch for periodontal testing and cleaning. I told her I wasn't interested in that - that I have more pressing concerns and don't want to pay for periodontal stuff as I know it's rather spendy. At that point, she refused to treat me for anything. She gave me my x-rays and offered to not charge me for my hour of wasted time. I absolutely would not recommend this place to any friend or foe. more

5+ years later, still a fan 5/1/2009

We've been going to see both Dr. Park and Dr. Kim - both are perfectionists - for at least 5 years now. Hygienists come and go, but somehow my wife and I have lucked out at Freemont Dental and have a wonderful, highly skilled, and patient hygienist - Jennifer... we had a sub one day when she was on vacation and it just wasn't the same. There are a lot of variables that go in to a Dental visit - and on the whole, these folks are the best we've ever been to. more

Think twice! 9/27/2007

New to the city I needed to find a local dentist... pronto! Found them online, and decided to give them a try. "Boy was I in for a surprise!" Dr. Kim made me feel very uncomfortable, but given all of the work that needed to be done I decided to continue giving them all my business. They broke down all that needed to be done into phases, and made me sign their disclosure that stated the portions me and my insurance were going to pay. At the end of phase one, my insurance and I paid them close to $5,000.Ok-fine, BUT SOME HOW there was an outstanding balance of $486. WHAT?! I called them asking them for explanation, but couldn't right then and there. They said they would have to call me back w/an explanation. When they did call me back they explained that the outstanding balance was for work that was done, but was not included in the disclosure agreement I signed. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???? I don't mind paying for the work that was done. But they could have gone about it differently. They were defensive and rude about it all. Highly recommend to THINK TWICE before giving them your business! more

High-end, careful, considerate 12/8/2006

Dr Park has always given me and my wife the best possible service and advice. They err on the high-end side of things, and will tell you what they think you should do, but ive never felt pressured to do the things I couldnt afford or didnt feel comfortable with. I think Dr Park is a perfectionist. If you want the best possible analysis of your dental situation, and are comfortable deciding what you want to do or not do, then they are great. Ive had good luck with all the hygenists so far there, too. Matt and Chiaki more

Strongly Recommended! 12/7/2006

I'm so curious about the circumstances behind the negative and so-so reviews. I have been a patient at Fremont Dental (specifically with the wonderfully professional and gentle Dr. Park, although I have also seen the equally terrific Dr. Kim a few times) for 4-5 years now, and I can honestly say that this is the best dental office I've ever visited. My only minor complaint is about the hygienist I've had the last few times I've been in for routine cleanings. She doesn't have the most gentle touch, and her attention to detail leaves something to be desired (maybe because she talks so much while she's working). I miss my old hygienist, who is no longer working there. Other than that, I love Fremont Dental. They're friendly, professional, gentle, conservative when necessary (especially in recommending procedures), and cutting-edge when it comes to the latest dental techniques. It's so nice to finally have a dentist that I both like and trust. I never thought I'd say this, but I actually look forward to my dental visits now. more

Pretty good... 12/8/2005

I find Fremont Dental is a pleasant environment and the staff are always really nice. I find Dr Park is particularly good (gentle and professional). However the hygienist I saw for a periodontic scrape (question whether this was entirely necessary too) didn't have the best needle technique - my jaw hurt for days afterward. I've had plenty of injections in my mouth and they're not usually *that* painful. more

Strongly not recommended 9/22/2005

I went to this dentist for about 2 years but should have left much sooner. They may have a nice office and let you watch movies while you have your teeth worked on, but when it comes to dentistry I was disappointed in many ways. They seem to recommend procedures that were deemed unnecessary when I consulted other dentists, I had 2 fillings break in less than 2 years (fillings that were a hefty price), and they were rude and made be feel uncomfortable every time I went. more

Best Dental Experience Ever! 9/18/2005

I've been going to Fremont Dental and seeing Dr. Kim for 4 years now and she is great! She is gentle and caring. Their staff is personable and understanding. I've had several fillings done there and all were painless. I would recommend them to anyone, and I do! more

Couldn't be better 9/1/2005

I can't think of one negative about Fremont Dental. I've been to many different dentists over the years and have had many different procedures...Dr. Park and her staff are some of the best I've found. The hygenists are super professional, but also personable. I would recommend Dr. Park to anyone. more

Friendly and enjoyable dentist! 7/19/2005

I usually hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Park and her staff make the visit as enjoyable as possible! The staff is friendly and professional and the offices are conveniently located on Fremont Ave and they have reserved parking in the garage. My appointments have always started on time and have been in and out for cleanings quickly, but I never feel rushed. I moved away from Seattle and on my first visit in 2 years everyone in the office welcomed me back and Dr. Park thanked me for being her patient. Super dentist! more

I'm a reformed Dentist hater thanks to Fremont Dental 4/18/2005

I hate the Dentist. Didn't go for 6 years because I'm such a wuss. Dr. Kim and her staff at Fremont Dental not only did an amazing (read "Pain Free") job with my numerous cavities and cleanings, they were hand's down the most friendly, up-beat bunch of health care folks I've met yet. No issues with insurance or billing, and I always knew up front what my copay and costs would be before we did anything. On top of all that, they actually had good music playing - no elevator tunes to accompany the sound of the drill :-) They get two thumbs-up from me! more
