Dr Christine Shigaki leads this office. I have been going for over 5 years and they have helped me learn to take terrific care of my teeth. I am not a big fan of going to the dentist, but have become comfortable with a frequent schedule of cleanings in order to stay ahead of cavities. Dr Shigaki’s team practice the highest standards and the latest technologies in order to assure patient’s comfort and well-being. They are also very kind and caring people. I cannot stress enough how much this office has helped me with my dental care, which is fundamental to one’s overall care.
Dr. Shigaki is possibly one of the best dentists to treat me. She is a continual learner, and she brings that curiosity to her practice. I was sent to her by my physical therapist, so our focus was quite specialized and Dr. Shigaki was a wonderful complement to that therapy. Her staff is really incredibly welcoming and kind. The overall vibe of the practice is warm and friendly. I would absolutely go to her for general dental hygiene and check up. I also found parking to be incredibly easy to find. Overall 10 out of 10. Or in this case, 5 out of 5.
I have been going to Belltown Dental for 10 years. Christine Shigaki and her team are the definition of excellence in health care. I have trauma from going to other dentists who did not listen to me when I was in pain or shamed me for neglecting my teeth during my twenties. This office transformed my relationship to dentistry and gum care. Christine and her team care about the whole person. They are supportive in helping you navigate the insurance and coverage maze and have a nice insurance plan you can use if coverage is dismal on your plan. It’s also clear that Dr Shigaki treats everyone in her office with respect and values interactions with people even when things are stressful or busy. I could go on and on. I don’t like going to the dentist and the team makes the experience so much less painful. I truly feel cared for when I go.
Dr Shigaki and her office is one of the best dental offices I’ve been to. They make sure that you understand everything before they do anything. Other offices have tried to speak over your head as if reading from a note card and assume you won’t know what they’re talking about. Cleanings are very thorough and you leave feeling like they really took their time and meticulously cleaned you up. Everyone is very friendly and you never feel like you’re being rushed. I like the layout with lots of natural light. Very comfortable chairs because you need them. I need to be relaxed when someone has power tools in my mouth. I’ll continue to come back again and again.
I’ve been going to Belltown Dental since it opened in 2003. Truth be told, my sister used to work here as a hygienist so when she left her previous job, I followed her to Belltown Dental. That’s why I started coming to BD but that’s not why I stayed. Christine is all about preventive care. She will see a potential issue in its early stages, develop a plan to address it and the issue either goes away or becomes very small. THIS is how our health care system should function. She also treats me like family. I thought it was because of my sister but I have come to find she treats ALL of her patients this way. The whole Belltown Dental team does this. Going to the dentist is not my favorite thing to do but Christine and the Belltown Dental team makes it so so much easier.
