Doctor Yee, over the past year has worked with me to not only restore my mouth to good working order but also to restore my faith in dentists as a whole. I had some very bad experiences with my previous dentist. I spent 3 months in excruciating pain after a filling that I was told, “Should have been a root canal” while my insurance was lapsed. Once I got my insurance back this same dentist did a root canal on the tooth which eventually became infected causing an uncomfortable(sometimes painful) abscess I lived with for nearly 10 years. Doctor Yee, has worked with me and my financial constraints to finally begin fixing the damage that was done. Just this month we finished a round of treatment that saw my smile returned to me in part and in that moment, admiring the careful and beautiful work of Dr. Yee (she had turned an ugly broken tooth into a beautiful natural looking tooth), I finally felt like I could one day have a mouth that I wasn’t ashamed of and didn’t need to hide when I smiled. I can not thank Dr. Yee, Dr. Bassily, and their wonderful assistants enough for all their help.

Gentle Dental Salmon Creek is by far the best dental care provider I have ever worked with! First, Dr. Yee is an exceptionally talented, caring provider who delivers excellent results. Dr. Yee's vast subject matter expertise, keen attention to detail, strong perceptual abilities, and impeccable dexterity make her one of the best in her field. Additionally she is very hard-working, has a good chairside manner, and is very honest with both her professional opinions and billing practices. I have had a number of routine visits and procedures with her; most recently she reshaped my upper-central incisors, the appearance of my upper arch is much improved! The dental assistants, hygentist, and front desk staff are supportive and pleasant, I enjoy seeing them during my visits. The office environment and location is great as well. I highly recommend Gentle Dental Salmon Creek for anyone seeking a new dental care provider!

I have to say working with Dr. Chavez and her staff has been amazingly pleasant especially since dental work isn’t always fun. I was genuinely cared for through the whole process of getting 2 crowns. I would highly recommend Dr. Chavez.

Dr. Yee and Ellen are great! I would give 5 stars with no problem. However, recently it seems they changed the accountant staff. There are some issues with communicating with the insurance I believe. Because recently I found that every single time I visited the office, I was over charged, e.g., I was charged for 120 when it should have been 60, etc. I know that the money would still be there in my account and can be used as "credit" next time I visit. I wouldn't mind if it is just one or two times thing. But it happens so frequent now and becomes annoying. Why would I keep credit there when I only need to visit once per several months? I hope they can do something about it. Maybe bill the customers later once the insurance has processed the claim? This is what my medical clinic does. If this is not possible, at least work with insurance more closely and estimate it accurately.
