What Is Comfort Dentistry?

We'll keep you comfortable throughout your visit!

We are proud to offer our dental patients a warm, welcoming environment in which to receive their routine, preventive, and cosmetic dental care.

We even have a therapy dog – a golden retriever named Chance – in the office, who provides comfort and reassurance to particularly fearful patients and those children who are unsure of what dental care is all about.

Peaceful Experience & Peace of Mind

Our Bellevue practice – within the Overlake and Bel-Red neighborhoods – is designed to offer patients a peaceful dental experience. It begins with ensuring your comfort throughout every aspect of your visit with us. We have designed all of our dental care stations with our patients in mind, offering pillows and blankets in the treatment chairs. And all of the chairs will allow you to look out onto our lovely backyard landscape. If you want to escape during the duration of your visit,  bring your headphones and link to your favorite playlists, or podcasts.  We’ll also offer you a warm towelette to freshen up with.  Should you wish for a deeper level of relaxation, we have Nitrous Oxide available.

Dr. Gilbert and our staff believe in preventive dental care education, teaching our patients the proper ways to brush, floss, and otherwise maintain their healthy teeth and gums. More than that, though, we also take the time to get to know each of our patients and to discuss with them their dental concerns and challenges. We believe that we form a team with our patients, working together to achieve full dental health.

Calming Views from Each Station!Our staff goes out of their way to ensure that every patient is treated with respect, is given the best dental care available, and that each patient understands their dental diagnosis and possible solutions to their issue. There is no single “right” solution for every dental situation: each patient has their own unique dental needs and we strive to address those with professionalism and compassion.

We also work to establish a friendship with our dental patients, getting to know them not just as patients but as friends with lives and interests that extend beyond their dental needs. Our staff thrives on the one-on-one interaction with each patient who enters our office and we value each and every one of these unique relationships.

Dr. Gilbert is available after-hours and on weekends for dental emergencies, knowing that sometimes dental intervention is needed outside of normal office hours.

Our promise to our patients is simple:  Make each experience in our office one that is well above the patient’s expectations in terms of skillful care and compassion.

  • Dr. Gilbert is amazing. When I first started going to him I had a bit of a fear of going to the dentist. Knowing that I needed care I was recommended to go see him. He listened to my concerns and made me feel at ease. I have been going to him for about 7 years now. I also love that he has a comfort dog in the office as well. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now.

  • One of the most kind and professional dentist you will meet! This man takes his time when he works his craft! He is a teeth artist! I just had the privilege of getting my teeth worked by him and I’m super impressed with how thorough he is! He is gentle with his hand and you can tell he really enjoys his work!
