What Our Patients Say…
“I came in about 4 years ago, needing braces and a teeth cleaning, the works, really. I have an enormous fear of dentists due to a traumatic incident with a surgeon who practically ripped out my wisdom teeth. I was terrified, but knew I needed to take care of my teeth and had put it off way, way too lobg… I researched and yelped my way to Dr. McKay! His staff is extremely gentle and very patient. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. He also recommended an amazing orthodontist and oral surgeon for the rest of the dental work that needed to be taken care of. You will not 110% regret going here!”-K.R.
“Dan McKay does EXCELLENT work. He put veneers on both my husband’s and my teeth, and we both get many compliments on our smiles! It takes an artful touch to get cosmetic dentistry to look natural, and Dan definitely has it! Great office staff as well. Highly recommend!!” -Gabrielle R.
“Dr. McKay is a world class dentist with a world class staff. I came in with some pretty significant restoration needs, and Dr. McKay and his staff were friendly, respectful and professional. They did a great job: high quality and caliber work. Especially if you have difficult dental needs, I would highly recommend Dr. McKay and his staff.” -Erik J.
“Dr. McKay and his staff are wonderful! I had not been to the dentist for 18 months after a really bad experience. I was a little apprehensive about going to see another dentist and the recommendations they would have. From the moment I contacted Dr. McKay’s office I was greeted with warmth and kindness. I was able to make my appointment via email which is very convenient in my busy lifestyle. Tiffany was really quick to get back to me, and I was able to get in very quickly.” -Cayley C.
“I have a total fear of even hearing the word ‘dentist’ but I was in such pain that I tried to find a Dr. near me that could see me quickly. I called and emailed Dr. McKay’s office and received a prompt response from Carrie the amazing and helpful and was in to see Dr. Mckay the next day. My imagination was going wild to what could be causing me so much pain and also the repercussions, will I lose a tooth? Well I need not worry, I grind my teeth at night and needed a night guard. Dr. McKay made me a tiny night guard that fits my upper 4 front teeth, not bulky at all. I did have to go in to have it ‘shaped’ because I was moving my mouth around it at night and I had some irritation but that is free of charge. Everyone there was so nice and didn’t make me feel weird because I have a total fear of the dentist. It’s on the top floor of Cabrini Tower with amazing views as well.” -Jennifer D.
“This dentist and his staff are incredible! Besides just the great patient service before they performed any services they had their front office rep, Carrie, sit down and review what everything would cost. She had discussed the services with my insurance and gave me a price before any services were done. I wished healthcare was as efficient as this office. Everyone is extremely friendly, their office is clean / updated and they have beautiful views of the city.” -Meredith E.
“I just had a free consultation today for an orthodontic relapse (retainers have to be worn for life and I wish I had known this). The receptionist (Carrie) made a great effort to get me in for a next day appointment. All of the staff were extremely friendly and Dr. McKay answered all of my questions and did not make me feel rushed. He then explained the options for my situation and Carrie went over all of the financial information with me. Another thing that I really appreciated was that I did not feel pressured into anything, and this was very comforting to me. If I do decide to get treatment here, I know I will be in good hands.” -Kimberly D.
“Dan McKay is absolutely my favorite dentist yet. He is super nice and friendly and very informative. My favorite part is the office. Its on the top floor of a 9 story building with amazing views of Seattle. Its just a very calming environment to get your teeth cleaned in. Since I was a new patient they also did a free Zoom whitening for me. I’ve been wanting to whiten my teeth forever but since it’s so expensive I haven’t been able to. LOVE the free perk just for going to the dentist. And my insurance covers it 100%. The hygienists are very nice as well. They remembered my name after just one visit. Its awesome to see how much they care about their patients. Go see Dr. McKay! You will be happy, I promise.” -Sakina C.
“Dr. McKay and his team are incredible! I truly hate going to the dentist (but who really likes it?) however, Dr. McKay’s team made my process quick and easy! I would highly recommend him and his staff to anyone. Everyone was super helpful in scheduling and adjusting to my schedule. I only wish they were open just a little earlier or a little later so I didn’t have to take off work to get in, but their team is amazing enough for me to miss work. I will be a patient for as long as I’m on Capital Hill. Thank you. I also really enjoy the views from the chairs!! Carrie at the front desk has been incredible with working with me in scheduling and insurance questions, it’s nice to feel “important” and not just another patient.” -Michelle B.
“I moved to Seattle a year and a half ago and have been putting off finding a dentist because I have had so many bad experiences with other dentists in the past. My husband broke his crown though so he found a dentist for us. I’m so happy he found Dr. McKay. All of the staff at his office are fantastic. Everyone is so friendly, and they made me feel less uneasy about having to get my teeth worked on. I was really impressed with Dr. McKay. He took the time to make sure I understood what needed to be done and once he was actually working on my teeth he got it done quickly and with almost no discomfort. What really surprised me though was that he personally called me the next day to see how my mouth was feeling and to make sure he had answered all my questions. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. If you are looking for a dentist I highly recommend Dr. McKay!!” -Kate B.
