General Dentistry Information

Dentistry is a powerful tool. We combine healthcare, art, and humanity together to make a truly unique difference in the lives of our patients. Our Tacoma dentist offers comprehensive dental care with a focus on providing Invisalign® occlusion based dentistry.  We also offer a full array of family and cosmetic care including implants and oral surgery. These treatments give us the ability to completely restore and change a person’s smile. Surgery can often be a scary thing to go through, but Dr. Petrie and our team make it our mission to make it a surprisingly enjoyable experience.

We are also a completely digital office, using high-quality digital X-rays, iTero® digital scanning, and laser treatments,. The iTero scanner is our newest addition that renders the most highly accurate impressions for crowns, bridges, and Invisalign®. Plus, because it is digital, there’s no need for messy, uncomfortable impression material!

Our Tacoma dental office has a family-oriented and professional environment second to none. We use the highest quality labs and materials in all our treatments, and strive to implement better, easier, and more comfortable ways of performing treatment and communication.

When it comes to your dental care, we believe in providing the most advanced, modern treatment. That’s why Dr. Petrie takes between 50 and 100 hours of continuing education each year, much more than is required by the state. He is a graduate of Dr. Garg's Implant seminar course and Nobel Implant Institute courses, and is a faculty member for Invisalign’s Align Institute. We see many of the Tacoma community’s retired dentists, resulting in our unofficial title of the “dentist's dentist.”
