Dr. Richardson and Joyce (the hygienist) are super professional and you can tell they really know what they’re doing. I had to do a deep cleaning and Joyce made sure to do it with extra care so it was as painless as possible. They also get you in and out of the clinic really fast so you can get on with your day. Highly recommend!
I have been coming here for more than 13 years and have never been disappointed. Dr. Richardson is fantastic. He is very personable and does excellent work. The staff is great and you’re always treated like family. Highly recommend the team at Kirkland Dentistry!
Excellent service. Clean professional. Good price. “A short note to express appreciation for my recent dental treatment. From the initial inquiry through to examination and the thorough explanation of my treatment plan and the procedures, I experienced efficiency, kindness, and professionalism of the highest degree, all the way from the reception staff, to my fabulous dentist and her nurse. With acute sensitivity, dental treatment is not something I enjoy, but I can say with all honesty, that I look forward to returning for future treatment, and will highly recommend Kirkland Dentistry Clinic to friends and family.
I have been going to this office for years and absolutely love them. They are able to get me in right away anytime I want to schedule an appointment. Dr. Everett is a great dentist and extremely thorough.
Great customer service! I had an issue with insurance, and Sherri went above and beyond to help resolve the issue. Thanks!
I recently became a patient at Kirkland Family Dentistry, and I could not be happier with their care and service. So far I have certainly felt thankful, comfortable and relieved to have found this office and to be seeking care here! Dr. Stanton along with the entire staff have been great.
Everyone in the office is always very friendly and helpful. Teeth cleanings are easy – they keep a good schedule and I’ve never had to wait. The waiting room is comfortable and it’s nice to grab cold water or juice along with a little snack from their waiting area on the way out. Definite recommend.

We absolutely love this dentist. They treat us like family every time we go in. Been going since I was little and now it’s fun to see my kids go there too!

I just had a crown replaced. Two hours, start to finish! No pain, a vibrating dentist chair, and music of my choice. I fell asleep! And the crown is permanent, not temporary. I travel from Seattle to go to this office; it’s so worth it.

I have only top praise for David Richardson DDS, who has been my dentist for over eight years. He is hands-down the best dentist I have ever experienced! Not only is he a stellar professional whose office has the most current state-of-the-art dental equipment, he’s warm, patient and personable and puts me at ease. From crowns to cleanings, I’ve only experienced the best in comfort and treatment. Plus he has an eye for hiring wonderful people! Joyce, in particular, is a delight. I highly recommend both David Richardson DDS and his support staff.

Catherine Lenox

Dr. Richardson is by far one of the best dentists I’ve ever been to. Both he and his team are very caring and will work to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Every time I’ve seen Dr. Richardson, he’s taken time to discuss procedures and issues with me and he obviously cares about his patients. No fake smiles here! If you need a dentist, go see Dr. Richardson!

I have been going to Dr. Richardson’s office for years. The staff is very friendly and the office is very clean. Need a crown? You can have your permanent crown the same day. No need for a temp. Dr Richardson has all the new, cool equipment. My children are grown and could go to a different dentist, but the choice to stay with Dr. R. Give them a try. You won’t be sorry.

Julie Douglas

Dr Richardson has been the best experience I have ever had with a Dentist. His skills are unmatched and the quality of his work exceeds everything I have ever experienced. Adding to this is the amazing staff that complete the experience, from the amazing front desk along with the fun and extremely talented dental assistants and the ever amazing hygienist Joyce. I moved here from out of state and have been so pleased with my experience with Dr. Richardson and his staff that I have remained with them for the past Seven years. They are the Best!

I switched to Dr. Richardson’s office about 2 years ago. After one visit, with their updated technology; he was able to see that a couple of fillings that I had put in when I was a kid were eroding both teeth. I was completely surprised by this and said: “How great is this?” Now, don’t get me wrong, I dislike going to the dentist just as much as the next person, but he was able to prevent what could have been very painful toothaches. Today, I nervously went in to get that procedure done. He and Wendy were AMAZING!! It has always been very hard for any dentist to me to get numb and requires A LOT of Novocain. After quite a few shots, he didn’t even blink, he and Wendy both wanted me to be comfortable and completely numbed me up – which is hard to do!!! I know my kids LOVE the staff and it makes going to the dentist a much more pleasurable experience! I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Richardson to all my family and friends. THANK YOU!!!

Dr. Richardson and his wonderful staff are great! I have referred them to family and friends, which are all happy with his care as well. You are made to feel comfortable and at ease whether it be a routine cleaning or having dental work completed. If you are looking for a new dentist… look no further! You will be happy with Kirkland Dentistry.

Dr. Richardson and his staff are very pleasant, professional and skilled. They are detail oriented and provide a high quality of dental care. The front office staff is very efficient, helpful and friendly. I am glad to have found Kirkland Dentistry.

Linda Harris

If you are looking for a friendly, fun and experienced dentist… look no further! Dr. Richardson and his friendly staff are simply the best! :) They are very flexible, they will fit you in for emergencies (trust me I know) and best of all he is HONEST! The team is on time, and gets you fixed up and on your way all with some laughs! They are great :)

Bridgette Anderson

I love this Dentist office, everyone is super friendly and efficient. I just recently had to get my first filling and I was surprised they had a massage chair pad and they also offered me headsets with music. Is this real life? Never had a dentist do that one before! I really enjoy my routine cleanings and my husband and I have been going to Dr. Richardson for over 2 years now. Keep up the great work!

Terri Knight

He is the best! The whole office– reception — dental assistants– right down to the cleaning. I had a lot of work to do when I started seeing him because of prior experiences with other dentists. He is helping me one step at a time… Now my husband and son see him as well…

Karen Z

Dr. Richardson and his staff were very professional and friendly. I haven’t seen a dentist for some time due to bad experiences and it’s such a task to locate someone you feel comfortable with and does a great job. I hit the jackpot with Dr. Richardson, the search is over.

My husband convinced me to switch to Kirkland Dentistry from a dentist I had been going to in Bellevue for years, and I’m so glad I did! 



After 21 years of seeing Dr. Richardson, I just had my final appointment since I’ll be moving out of state in a few weeks! He and this team are very friendly and provide an excellent experience every time! I highly recommend you check them out if you’re in need of a high-quality dentist!



This place is fantastic! They actually get your teeth clean, the staff is amazing, and appointments aren’t a pain in the a$$ to schedule or change. Highly recommend!


The front desk staff was considerate and proactive to address some scheduling complex scheduling issues I needed to handle. Once I arrived, the greeting was friendly and I had no wait. I was taken immediately back and found the dental assistant and dentist to be cheerful, professional and efficient. The office uses modern technologies and cares about comfort. I have only great things to say about them!

Very friendly and super polite… they remember their patients and are genuinely happy to see them. very easy to work with and work hard to fit you in when an emergency arises. Top notch!

Great experience every time. Latest and greatest technology and awesome staff.

We love coming to this dentist! Great staff, great office, and always a great experience. Never disappointed with their service!

We drive an hour to see this dentist and we absolutely love him and all the staff. Very family oriented and always do a great job! We look forward to seeing them every 6 months

Dr. Richardson did an amazing job fixing my chipped teeth after a nasty bike accident. Excellent staff.

Anthony R.

Check-in was EASY with Hillary and Wendy there to help. The experience was top-notch from beginning to end. Thank you Kirkland Dentistry Staff — you guys are the best! 

Tommy E.

Dr. Richardson & Kirkland Dentistry have been my dentist for 25+ years. I have moved around the Puget Sound area but still, come back. After years of only going to the dentist when he had to, my husband now comes and looks forward to it. You wouldn’t think coming to the dentist could be a pleasurable experience but it is. The dental hygienists are probably the best we have ever had. Dr. Richardson did lots of work on my teeth 25 years ago and I have had zero issues. It’s now time to replace old fillings and Kirkland Dentistry will schedule the work overtime so it will fit into my budget and schedule. Highly recommend

Diane C.

Can’t brag about this place enough. Fantastic dentistry. I’ve been to many in the past and have never been to one so friendly and professional. Not just that, they’re really easy to talk to and work with. Very down to earth, nice, respectable group of people there. I don’t think I could recommend a dentist’s office more than this one. I avoided dentists for years because of multiple bad experiences, but I honestly think Dr. Richardson and his staff are absolutely amazing. Do yourself a favor and give them a chance. You won’t regret it.

I was looking for a dental clinic in the neighborhood and was so glad I found Kirkland Dentistry. Dr. Richardson and Joyce are super professional and you can tell that they really know what they’re doing. Joyce (the hygienist) is also super meticulous and does cleanings as painlessly as possible. The staff are very responsive and send you regular reminders for appointments. Check out Kirkland Dentistry – you won’t be disappointed.

Adelie – 5.0 star rating

I was introduced to this dentist through my wife’s family. Every time I have gone it has always been a pleasant experience, no more need to fear the dentist. I recently had to repair a tooth with a crown in which was all done in one sitting. No need for two trips. This dentist and his staff are by far the best you will ever experience.

Back for a second visit! The office is decorated so beautifully for the holidays! Love coming here!!

Everyone in the office is always very friendly and helpful.   Teeth cleanings are easy – they keep a good schedule and I’ve never had to wait.  The waiting room is comfortable and it’s nice to grab cold water or juice along with a little snack from their waiting area on the way out.   Definite recommend :-)

…The entire team is a family and has become one to me over the time I have been treated by Dr. Richardson. They have taken time to get to know me personally and always do a wonderful job whether I’m there for a cleaning, filling or root canal. I’ve always got something going on with my mouth, but I know that Dr. Richardson and the team will take care of me with no pain!

I was able to get in as a new patient quickly with Dr. Richardson. The staff was not only courteous but also very knowledgeable. The office was well kept and very nice and the service matched. Dr. Richardson also took the time to sit down and talk to me about the exam and all the recommendations that he had for me. I’ve been to multiple dentists over the years because of moving and I rate him the top notch. I would highly recommend coming here!

C T. – 5.0 star rating

Dr. Richardson and his staff are the BEST ever! If you are phobic of dentists, as I am (I’m not ashamed to admit it), you will SO appreciate the time, care, patience and compassion he and his hygienists and assistants will show you. I was referred to this office by my neighbor who is a bigger wimp than I am; she literally cries while waiting in the waiting room! The staff comes out and holds her hands and talks her down. Me, I’m not as bad – but still, not great. I need the nitrous oxide for ANYTHING, as well as the heated massage chair and my Sinatra playing on my Walkman, to even consider the most benign procedure. But the staff takes the time to calm my nerves, to distract me, to help me breathe (literally!), even to make me laugh sometimes – all the while being genuine, and not condescending (as other dentists’ staff have done in the past). I’ve gone to Dr. Richardson for 5 or 6 years now, and my husband is a patient here, too. I’ve even recommended a co-worker, who is extremely phobic, and now she, too, won’t consider going anywhere else. I can’t say enough great things about this practice!

Nancy H – 5.0 star rating

My great experiences with Dr. Richardson for the last three to four years have completely wiped out the “not so good” experiences I had previously with other dentists. Dr. Richardson makes dental treatment like a walk in the park!   I thank him for being the caring person that he is.   All of his staff are very friendly, and always concerned that the patient is not having any difficulty with the care being provided.   Dr. Richardson and his staff are definitely a FIVE STAR practice for me!…David Richardson sets the bar for dentists everywhere. He (& his staff) are professional, knowledgeable & efficient. David genuinely listens to the patient, & explains options – void of influencing an outcome. I can recommend this practice without reservation.

Adeline Crinks – 5.0 star rating

Dr. Richardson has been my dentist since 2008 and my teeth have never been in better condition. I have lived all over the world and there isn’t even a close second dentist that I can think of. I highly recommend him if you have a fear of going to a dentist. I used to have a fear of going to a dentist that kept me away for years at a time. I’ve had everything from root canals to cleanings done at Kirkland Dentistry and everything has been done perfectly with no pain. I would recommend Dr. Richardson to anyone….

My daughter and I go get our teeth cleaned together every six months and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. She is six and a half and they are SO good with her.

I just started and I like the staff that I have met. My previous dentist messed up my teeth… 1 filling and 2 crowns… Dr. Richardson made a plan to fix and so far he’s done a great job and stuck with the plan. I appreciate that.


Hands down the best experience I’ve ever had visiting a dentist office. I’ve referred many friends and family members and none of them have been disappointed. I look forward to getting my teeth cleaned every 6 months!

…Moved to Bellevue area this summer and needed to find a new Dentist. Reviewed Angie’s List and other sites and decided to try Dr. Richardson in Kirkland.Got an appointment quickly. Staff is professional and friendly. Had my teeth checked and cleaned…….discovered decay around/under a crown with x-rays. Four days later, had the damaged tooth repaired and new crown in two hours.Dr. Richardson is a very highly skilled dentist with a warm and engaging personality. I can sincerely recommend him. You will be pleased. I have scheduled my wife for a visit too!

John Chapman

I saw Dr. Davidson for general dentistry. He practices at Kirkland Dentistry. I had a crown broke in front of my mouth, the top one.

The whole office is great. I had a dental emergency that I just came back from. They squeezed me in today on their busy schedule before they leave for their 10-day trip. Their office will be closed for 10 days. They gave me a referral to an oral surgeon and they took care of my problem with promptly and courteously. It is devastating and terrifying to find the right people to go to. The experience was very good. The location is right by the hospital. The staff is very good.

If your into preventative,and the latest medical advances go see dr. richardson. He coated my teeth with some sealant to protect them from future damage,saving me future crown exspence. The staff is very friendly, and the office is very beautiful and clean.

First Rate all the Way

I’ve been a happy patient for over 10 years. This crew of dental professionals goes above and beyond – one Saturday morning I experienced the worst tooth pain of my life, called the office, and was met there that morning to get relief from the pain and my tooth fixed. I became a patient for life because the doctor came from home on a Saturday and opened the office especially for me…


Our family loves having Dr. Richardson for our dentist. Even the kids!! Our family did not like going to the dentist until we switched to Dr. Richardson. Everyone in the office is kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. You could not be in better hands. Thank you, Dr. Richardson!


Dr. Richardson has been taking care of my teeth for over 20 years. Thanks to him I still have my own teeth at age 75 and still get compliments on my smile. Consistently, I still fall asleep anytime he needs to drill; and that is with a minimum of local anesthetic, or some times even none. He always has and maintains the latest state of the art equipment and is always currently knowledgeable on any latest developments…


…I recently chose to change Dentists, and I’ve been absolutely delighted with the quality and efficiency & professionalism of Kirkland Dentistry. They provide prompt care and ensure great comfort. They have the latest generation of dentistry equipment in the office eliminating the need for multiple visits. I’m also very pleased with the precision pain control, I have experienced no discomfort…

Dr. Richardson has done dental work for my whole family. Today he did a crown and I never even felt the novocaine. He and his assistant Wendy told me each step as they were doing it. They were fast and professional in all they did. My mom has worked for the best Dentists in our growing up years, so David Richardson has had some big shoes to fill. I can’t say enough about their staff and their work.


Just had my 6 month check up and it was a breeze!!! I am a dento-phobe (okay,I made up that word – but I have always been afraid of the dentist), but Dr. Richardson and his staff totally have me at ease and I actually enjoy going in for a cleaning. I feel great coming out. They are all so understanding and smiling and treat me like I’m the only patient they have at that time. It is awesome. My family and I have been going there for around 7 years now and we can’t imagine going anywhere else. Keep up the good work!!!


Looking for a good dentist???

I have been visiting Dr. Richardson and his staff in Kirkland for more than 15 years. Recently, I introduced my wife to the office. She was TERRIFIED of the dentist, having been tortured as a child. The staff did everything in their power to make her visit pleasant and relaxing (trust me, it wasn’t easy). My wife was pleasantly surprised by the experience and is now a loyal client. We would never dream about seeing another dentist!

Great Family Dentist – David and his staff are professional, friendly, and always accommodating. Our whole family of five sees Dr. Richardson and his staff, and we are always warmly welcomed and treated kindly and professionally. We’ve had some experiences at other dentists that left us feeling insecure and lacking confidence in their ability to handle all our dental issues, but with Dr. Richardson, we have full confidence in his ability to deal with any dental issue with expertise and graciousness. It is a relief to have found Kirkland Dentistry, and we highly recommend him to anyone seeking a wise, professional, and people-oriented dentist.

“great service”

Dr. Richardson has lived up to all my expectations and has made me happy the I selected him when my wife and I moved here from Illinois. My wife is also very happy with his services. I would recommend Dr. Richardson to anyone asking for a recommendation


It is worth the drive…

I think I have been seeing Dr. Richardson for around 10 years, I guess you lose track when you find a dentist that makes you comfortable. The last four years I have lived in either Whatcom or Skagit County, I still make the drive for regular cleanings. Dr. Richardson has assembled a staff that works well together, all the ladies in the office are professional and help make you feel welcome.

Dr. Dave has been my dentist for over 10 years and I don’t plan on going anywhere else. Joyce, Wendy, Chris, Melinda and Annie and the rest of the team always make the visit as good as it can be. I’ve needed a few root canals and have been impressed that I can get my new crowns done in one visit. They take my Delta Dental insurance and are just off 405 near Evergreen Hospital so they are easy peasy to get to. Good peeps all. – The Best Kirkland WA Dentist

The Best Kirkland Dentist? I think so…

Dr. Dave at Kirkland Dentistry has been my dentist for 13 years and I genuinely don’t fear to go to the dentist like I used to. He uses a lot of numbing stuff so you don’t feel a thing.

The group of dental professionals he’s got as his team really know how to put you at ease. Friendly – yup. A bit silly – yes. He’s quick and uses the most high-tech equipment so my teeth get made quickly and on the property while I wait. His x-ray equipment is the low-radiation type so when he needs to peek inside my teeth it’s safer.

I’ve recommended a bunch of others to him and they too have become big fans. Thanks, guys!

This is a very, very good dentist! Always takes the time to explain what is happening, makes sure I am comfortable, and has a sense of humor to boot!


Impressed with this dentist and his staff

We love coming to Dr. Richardson. He is friendly and smart. His staff is awesome and my kids even like coming to this dentist.


Best experience ever!!!

Top technology, professional and friendly staff. Wish I had come to Dr. Richardson years ago. Telling all my family and friends to check out this amazing office.


I have referred everyone to them

We have been using Dr. Richardson for over 15yrs. I have 5 children plus my husband and myself and we would not think of going anywhere else. Dr. Richardson keeps up on and invests in the newest treatments for his patients. I recommend him to anyone who is new in the area or looking for a new dentist.


 Dentist David Richardson and his staff are THE BEST!!!

From state-of-the-art treatment and equipment to warm, friendly “chair-side manner,” Dr. David Richardson and his staff are absolutely stellar. I highly recommend their dentistry services!


Awesome Dentist

I always am into the chair within moments of arriving, even if early. They told me the plans of what they wanted to do and remind me every time so I can keep on track. The entire staff is extremely friendly and I would recommend this office to anyone who wants a friendly and professional experience.


They leave me screaming for more!

I’ve gone here literally my entire life. I don’t make it easy for them. I brush every few days, rarely floss, and never use mouthwash. But the 30-60 minutes I spend in their office twice a year continues to keep me cavity and gingivitis-free. No halitosis, gum disease, or dead teeth. There must be something in the water because this place is making miracles happen every day!


Felt so at ease

I honestly have not had a better experience than I did my first time at Kirkland Dentistry. Loved the staff and felt so comfortable even though I had walked in completely nervous. Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience.



Since we have switched to this dental office, my sister and her family have switched as well and my parents are planning on it! We all love it!

HUBIE H. – David Richardson DDS Dentist Reviews

My kids LOVE going to the dentist thanks to Dr. Richardson and his staff. They can watch TV while they wait for their turn and they love the goody bag they get at the end. The staff is great with kids and Dr. Richardson’s expertise saved my daughters tooth.

Very friendly comfortable atmosphere. They try very hard to make me feel at ease. . and the music and vibrating chair help a lot too!! Would highly recommend Dr. Richardson and his whole staff.

Finding a great dentist is not an easy task. My whole life I have had a terrible dentist! Dr. Richardson is by far the best! His staff is friendly and gentle. He provides a great service to me and I’m sure you will really like him too!!
