Welcome to SeattleDental.org
This website was created by a student from the LWTC Dental Hygiene Program in order to promote oral health for the Russian community of King County, Washington. the goal was to create a website that would benefit both patients and dental professionals, as well as to help Russian speaking patients communicate with dental professionals.
Patients can find important information about oral hygiene techniques for use at home, prevention of dental disease, interesting dental health facts, and a list of clinics in the Seattle area that accept DSHS or other government dental programs. Patients will also find information on free children’s dental care in our state – most children are eligible for coverage up to a certain age. All of the above information is available by clicking on the “Patients” or “Clinics” tabs.
Dental professionals will find quick translation sheets that will help communicate with the Russian speaking patient, as well as a list of DSHS clinics to refer patients to, if a procedure cannot be completed in their office. Click on the “Clinics” or “Providers” tabs for more information.
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Seattle Dental website.

To Be Determined
(For kids ages 6-13)
In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the Lake Washington Dental Hygienists’ Society is offering a preventive dental program, One Day Every Year in February/March. We will be providing FREE dental sealants, exams, bitewing x-rays, and fluoride varnish to children who would not otherwise be able to receive this cavity-prevention treatment. Children whose teeth are unable to be sealed due to decay may have their cavities filled at a later date.
Sealants are white coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. They are non-toxic and protect teeth from cavities. This process is painless, can protect your child’s teeth for 6-8 years, and is usually done in less than an hour. Registered Dental Hygienists and Dental Hygiene Studentswill place the sealants on your child’s teeth.
Please call the dental clinic at Shoreline Community College 206-455-8995 to make an appointment. Location: 16101 Greenwood Avenue North Shoreline, WA 98133.
