I was very pleased with the reception & billing. Very timely & the costs were made very clear to me before proceeding. The dentist was OK. He explained everything very well and I trusted his recommendations. However, he was pretty messy during the procedure. He splashed water in my eye at one point, and when he was injecting the anesthesia it was dripping on my face. He also wasn't happy with the water in the room, or something like that. He was literally shouting down the hall to get someone to fix it, and while that was being fixed he left the room for over 10 minutes while I was laying flat with my mouth propped wide open. Very uncomfortable to say the least. This was my first visit, and I plan to return, but there were some things that needed work in terms of professionalism, in my opinion.

I had a great experience at Ballard Modern Dentistry. The staff was very helpful and went above and beyond to provide me with all of the information I would need to make an informed decision regarding my dental care. The staff called my dental insurance company multiple times (at one point being put on hold for an hour) to make sure they could provide me with the most accurate cost information for my dental procedure options. After being presented with two options for dental procedures, Dr. Shin kindly took extra time to sit down with me and answer all of my questions. Additionally, I was impressed with the thoroughness of the dental evaluation. I have never had such thorough x-rays of my teeth completed. I was very impressed from beginning to end with the team at Ballard Modern Dentistry.

I believe Tina was my dental assistant, and it was her first day. I was very impressed by the support from her trainer, and the staff overall was very kind. I had a wonderful experience, considering I have put off going to the dentist for about a decade because of my fears/anxiety. Everyone put me at ease right away, made sure that I didn't feel worse about my procrastination, and coached me through a long set of dental rads and a mouth guard fitting (probably one my more uncomfortable experiences to date) and I came out on the other side laughing. Great team! Great environment! I can't believe I am saying this, but I can't wait to go back for my cleaning! haha

My only question is that do you typically hand out a "goodie bag" of supplies (brush, toothpaste, mouthwash, etc.) after a cleaning? I thought you did when I started coming there, but I haven't received one the last two cleanings I've had. Just curious.

As the office is getting busier, the quality of service is starting to go down a bit. It is awesome that they are growing quickly, however they need to make sure the service matches the expectations as previously set by last years experiences.

Everyone was pleasant and my interactions with those who put their hands in my mouth was friendly and professional. I appreciated the dentist's explanations backing his concerns and assertions. Sometime it's good to know WHY, and I appreciate it.

My experience with Ballard Modern Dentistry was overwhelmingly awesome! From the first rate facilities and equipment to the fantastic staff and doctors, the entire appointment was just excellent! My decision to try BMD was derived primarily from a few positive internet reviews and the terrific price for new patient first appointments - but I am thrilled to feel like I've FINALLY found my long term dentist in Seattle! In the 24 hours since my appointment I've already raved to several people about them and have encouraged a few to make their first appointments. Could simply not be happier with BMD and am looking forward to being a continuing patient for many years to come!

Wonderful dental services! I love how the dentist personally talked to me first and explained all of the details about my dental care & visit. The medical assistant and the hygienist were very friendly and skilled in what they do. The exams were effortless and painless (the cleaning went so smoothly to the point where I could fall asleep if she didn't talk to me or give me instructions, haha). The receptionist and the benefit coordinator were informative and knowledgeable, answering to all of my inquiries. Overall, this is the best dental care I have ever received! Good job & keep it up!!

Had a great experience for my first visit. Dr. Raber had read through my registration form and history and asked me personal questions to get to know me better. She went over my exam findings and my X-ray findings with me and had a clear explanation for what she recommended and why. My hygienist Miychelle was excellent and I have already purchased the floss she recommended! I'm very happy that I chose this practice for my dental care and would absolutely recommend it.

Everything was great, but products/treatments were pushed a bit. For example, my husband was recommended to purchase a night guard out-of-pocket because he "might or might not" be grinding his teeth. The dentist (Dr. Shin) should be able to assess if he is grinding, and then recommend a course of treatment as opposed to pushing products.

Melissa is an outstanding hygenist who had to do extra work for poor cleanings I got elsewhere. She was efficient, meticulous and cheerful while doing heavy duty, pain free scraping. I never tensed a muscle and ate tomato sauce without pangs two hours later.

Very comfortable and inviting! Staff are kind, professional, and the cost transparency is very helpful. I have avoided going to the dentist for 5 + years due to financial reasons and am glad I chose Ballard Modern. I went in to have my wisdom teeth looked at and was treated with kindness. Suggestions for further work were posed to me in such a way that I felt very empowered around making decisions concerning my dental care!

We are new to Seattle and did not have a dentist here. One of my crowns came loose over the weekend and your office was very kind in granting me an appointment on Monday morning. To say that I was very impressed with every aspect of my appointment and treatment would be a gross understatement! Dr. Shin and Tash (as was the dental assistant, who's name I do not know) were simply outstanding, and the fee for the treatment was very reasonable and beyond fair. We now have a dentist in Seattle...your office! Please pass along my gratitude to Dr. Shin and the staff!

The xray machine was not working correctly which resulted in me having many tries and having to move rooms. With the mouth piece sensor for taking xrays being so uncomfortable and painful, this didn't make me happy. I was also in the office an hour longer than expected. But the dentist and assistant were good and they made me as comfortable as possible. Good choice of radio station :)

I thought my visit was great overall, and appreciated everyone's skill. My only recommendation is that the hygienist could take more time and cover more of the tooth during polishing. I think it was the quickest polishing I have had.

Everything was great except for the fact that the new patient forms are completed via tablet. The forms are too long and require too much typing to be completed via tablet. Also, the touch screen makes form completion less accessible to people with poor motor skills.

I have always been very happy with the service provided at Ballard Modern Dentistry, and have no intention of changing providers. I was, however, frustrated with my scheduling experience this visit. I made my appointment for 5:30pm 6 months ago, and received a confirmation email a few weeks ago that reiterated that appointment time. I received a call yesterday morning, however, stating that I needed to come in at 1:00 pm. Luckily, i was able to accommodate this change due to a relatively flexible work day, but it was not an ideal situation. I am not sure what happened between the confirmation email I received a few weeks ago, and the call I received yesterday morning, but I hope that this does not happen again to any other patients.

Prior to my visit, I hadn't been to the dentist in 5 years, because of the effort to find a good one close to me. (There's one in my condo building, but I had heard horror stories and avoided them, despite the convenience.) I came across this office on Yelp, and couldn't be happier about choosing them for my dental care going forward!

So happy to have found this office as my dentist after recently moving to Seattle. I am completely confident in Dr. Raber and was well taken care of by her and her team. The office has all of the newest technology which made everything go very smoothly. They were also up front about costs and what my insurance does or does not cover so I could make informed decisions about a cavity that I know has been in need of attention. Thank you Dr. Raber and Natasha for a stress free dental visit.

It has been many years since I have visited a dentist, Ballard Modern never made me bad about the lapse. They mentioned that it happens all the time and that my current condition was able and easy to get back on track. Every person i encountered was kind, upbeat and calming. I was a little nervous due to the lack of experience but they made sure to explain everything that was going on and offered breaks anytime I needed them. It was an affordable and approachable process that I look forward to making a normal practice going forward. Very impressed.
