New dental group opens in Issaquah Highlands

The Issaquah Highlands Dental Group has opened.

Issaquah Highlands Dental Group, a Smile Generation-trusted office, is equipped with advanced technologies including online registration, digital X-rays and CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry. The use of this technology affords patients high-quality dental care and convenience.

The office utilizes only digital X-rays, which are safer for patients due to 90 percent lower radiation exposure as compared with traditional X-rays.

With the use of CEREC CAD/CAM dentistry, patients no longer have to worry about messy impressions and scheduling multiple trips to the dentist in order to have a crown molded.

For every CEREC CAD/CAM completed at Issaquah Highlands Dental Group, a donation will be made to charity:water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries.

The dental office is at 1416 Highlands Drive N.E., Suite 120.
