According to the American Pediatric Association, your baby should be seen by a physician or dentist by their first birthday to have their teeth and mouth checked.
In these early years, your Federal Way infant dental care pediatrician should be checking their teeth and mouth at each visit. Unless they notice a problem or your baby sustains a fall or bump, those checks should be sufficient.
Our firm belief is there is NO reason for a child not to LOVE the dentist! We designed our infant dental care in Federal Way to have a positive effect on their development.
We are so honored to have the trust of the parents to partner with each child to establish a great dental foundation that will last a lifetime!
At around ages 2-3 your child will have his or her first full dental visit with our family dentist in Federal Way.
We’ll explain everything you need to know to make dental hygiene a fun and normal part of their routine.
‘‘I have been a patient for nearly 20 years, and have had the best dental care available. Dr. Lee and her staff are courteous, professional, and really put your dental care and health first!‘‘

Gone are the times of “divided” medicine. More and more attention is being paid to how everything in the body is linked. For many years, medicine tried to “specialize” things to the detriment of the patient. We are now in an era of co-treatment and co-diagnosis. Many things that go on in other parts of the body will manifest themselves in the mouth and vice-versa.
It is important to try to take the best possible care of your entire body. Visit your dental hygienist regularly for coaching on how to get enough sleep, healthy exercises, reduce unnecessary environmental exposures and maintain a proper diet.
Dr. Lee feels blessed to have our dedicated team of hygienists! Each of them displays a strong commitment to the field of dentistry and dental hygiene for Federal Way residents.
They have a true passion for helping each of our patients maintain a healthy mouth for a lifetime! They truly want to be your partners in your dental health journey.
At every hygiene visit (every 3-6 months!) we'll partner with you to make sure your smile and hygiene habits are spot-on and thus avoid big dental expenses in the future.
