This past year I've had great service at Northgate Smiles for getting fitted for a mouthguard to help with my teeth grinding at night and I had a sealant replaced by a filling. In both situations Dr. Aylen and her assistants were very helpful, knowledgable, and put me at ease with each procedure. It was pain free and easy to schedule.

Other positives with Northgate Smiles: The location in Northgate is convenient and they have plenty of parking. They send out appointment reminders in the mail, by email, and on the phone. On all my visits they have taken me on time or even early right when I arrive. But if I do ever have to wait in the future, it wouldn't be that bad because Northgate Smiles has a very inviting waiting room with a great selection of magazines, bottled water, and coffee.
Northgate Smiles offers convenient times with 7 am early bird apptmts. Once I needed to reschedule and they were able to take me in within the next week.

Northgate Smiles is awesome. Genetics gives me the opportunity to visit the dentist many times. I previously went to the same dentist my entire life and dreaded going to the dentist. Although the doctors and staff were very nice the service was not the same as I get at Northgate Smiles. Dr. Aylen and her staff are very friendly and good at what they do. They are quick and painless when it comes to office visits. The dentist is usually the last place I would ever want to go. However, the staff here is wonderful and makes it easy to get myself to go in. I don't stress out about going to the dentist anymore. I recommend Northgate Smiles to anyone in the Seattle area looking for a great dentist.

I was very nervous going to a new dentist after having multiple poor experiences with other dentists. However, at Northgate Smiles, I felt very relaxed and was treated like family. Everything was up front with no hidden fees/costs. I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially those who may have had poor past experiences. They dentists and the staff have definitely changed the way I think about going to the dentist.

People are often very afraid to go to the dentist. I was one of those people. Today things have completely changed for me. I am going to Dr. Karla Aylen at Northgate Smiles. I have had some really serious dental care that needed to be done. I am having it done now, and I am so blessed.

Dr. Aylen and the hygienist I see Cindy are amazing. I switched to Northgate Smiles at the beginning of this year due to frustration with my long term dentist. I can't believe how different an experience this has been. Dr. Aylen and her team use technology to their advantage, are easy to contact, are amazingly friendly and very efficient. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a dentist in the Seattle area.

My husband, my five-year old son and I all have the pleasure of being patients of Dr. Aylen. She and her staff are always prompt, extremely friendly, and efficient. I have never had to wait more than a minute or two to be seen. My son always gets the royal treatment when he comes, and it has made his dental experiences so fun. He loves seeing the stuffed boa constrictor and chatting up everyone (who always take the time to talk with him). We have referred some friends to this office and they have also been very pleased with their experience. They are also very good at explaining any charges, estimates, etc and always call to remind of appointments. Thanks to everyone at Northgate Smiles for always being outstanding!

I have been seeing Dr. Aylen at Northgate Smiles for a couple of years now, and I couldn??t be more pleased!

Previous dental offices have told me my teeth are cracked from grinding and that I should consider getting veneers. At Northgate Smiles they let me know my teeth are just fine, although a little worn down from grinding, so I should consider a mouth guard ?? quite different from the price of veneers!

When I first went to see Dr. Aylen, I needed an implant (crown), and it turned out my post is not a standard one, so needed a particular setting. She notified the lab making the implant about the non-standard post and arranged someone from the lab to come up during my exam to take a look. After my appointment I went down stairs to get the final details worked out. It made everything so easy for me.

And finally, my dental hygienist Cindy is fantastic! She??s very easy to talk to and makes my cleaning seem to last no time at all, and my teeth feel great when she??s done.

I highly recommend Northgate Smiles!

Dr. Karla Aylen and the Northgate Smiles Staff are excellent--the best dentistry team we have ever visited. We have been patients for over three years and only have great things to say. The scheduling of appointments, explanations of billing and insurances, dental appointments--treatments, cleanings, specialized care have all been first class. They totally treat their patients politely and make them feel welcome. After living in so many cities, we were a little nervous about establishing new dental care--they make it a breeze with genuine patient concern. Excellent services!

The initial exam was thorough. The doctor and her employees were friendly and easy to talk to. The doctor explained everything and gave me options, something many dentists don't do. Her staff was willing to communicate via email since I am deaf and cannot use a phone. All treatment was communicated up front so I knew exactly what to expect and I've experienced very little pain. I'm impressed with Dr. Aylen and her employees and would highly recommend this dentist to others. Thank you, Dr. Aylen!

Long waits in office, instead of rescheduling they walked me to a different dentist/building to do a pano xray (theirs broke), gave me a hard time for not being prepared for the extraction but they hadn't briefed me AT ALL prior to my appointment, cut my tongue during extraction, forgot to order my post-extraction prescription pain pills (corrected this after I called the emergency contact), prescribed antibiotics when I went in complaining of symptoms of dry-socket leaving me in unnecessary agony (I paid an oral surgeon to take over caring for my dry-socket; a natural clove oil stuffing replaced constant Vicodin AND ibuprofen meds- saved my liver), 23-hr wait for callback when I was in excruciating pain after their misdiagnosis (the reason why I contacted the new clinic), sent me a bill requesting additional payment even though I had paid for the procedure in office (billing coordinator says she made an error and they actually owe me $12). Received letter of apology/explanation after posting this review, but I don't feel like they took responsibility for all the mistakes. Already filled out the form to release my records to a more professional/organized clinic. Glad it's over with. I will not return.

Dr. Karla Aylen did not ever treat you and has never met you before.

I've moved 3 times in the last 10 years and have the unfortunate pleasure of experiencing 3 different dentists. My feelings about dentist were luke warm at best until I met Dr. Karla Aylen and her staff at Northgate Smiles. From the state of the art techniques and equipement to the most friendliest professional staff, Dr. Aylen raises the level of excellence that all dentists throughout the country should aspire to achieving.
Kudos to you Dr. Aylen and all of your staff members!

Dr. Aylen and her staff take the hesitaion out of going to the dentist! She does great work, fast. I like that she does not keep you waiting nor does she ever leave the room when she is working with you. She also is gentle and considerate. Pricing upfront so there is no surprises.

My family and I have beein seeing Dr. Aylen for over two years and we would highly recommend her. The staff is very freindly and nice. She always seems genuinely interested in my well being and is very accomodating when it comes to last minute emergency appointments and squeezing in time when it's good for me. Never painful, always respectful she's an excellent dentist.
