Known for our cutting-edge technology, Family Dental Care of Bellevue has been in practice for over 34 years and is one of the leading dental care practices in Bellevue, Washington. Our patients refer their friends to us, both because of our technology and because of our commitment to delivering dental care in an upbeat, fun, and friendly environment.

At the end of your visit, your dentist will meet with you to review our findings, discuss your concerns, and develop an individualized treatment plan that meets both your needs and your budget.

Family Dentistry

Do you know what to do if your toddler wakes up with a toothache in the middle of the night? What happens if your teenager knocks out a tooth playing basketball? Does your daughter want her teeth to look their best for her upcoming wedding?

Both the dentists and the office staff of Family Dental Care of Bellevue love working with kids of all ages, and we know the special challenges that children sometimes pose to their teeth! Our signature “Happy Visit” introduces children to the process of dental care in a fun and nonthreatening way, and we provide all of our kids with an early orthodontic evaluation around the age of seven. However, we are not solely a pediatric dental practice. Instead, we provide age-targeted services throughout our patients’ entire lives. From small kids to grandparents, we build relationships with your entire family.

Laser Dentistry

Modern technology with a personal flair

Have you heard about the wonders of laser dentistry? Do you want a CEREC one-appointment crown? Dr. Austin and Dr. Galloway are highly educated and experienced in the latest dental technologies, and they use these technologies in treatments as appropriate. At the same time, we recognize that you are a person and not just a number or a test case, so traditional procedures are also used when they make sense. At Family Dental Care of Bellevue, we believe in blending technologies as needed to create the individualized treatment protocol that is best suited to each patient.

General Dentistry

General dentistry encompasses all of the routine preventive care and treatment procedures that are needed throughout the average patient’s life. From twice-annual cleanings to simple restorations and even full-mouth reconstruction, general dentistry covers a wide range of services. We believe in building a relationship based on trust so that when life happens, you know you and your family are in good hands.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is loosely defined as all dental procedures that focus on improving the appearance of your smile. From porcelain veneers to dental implants, Dr. Austin and Dr. Galloway are well-versed in helping your smile be the best that it can be.

Your cosmetic dentistry journey begins with a smile makeover in which we use photographs of your current smile and other smiles that you admire, along with our professional analysis of your facial structure, skin tone, and even eye color, to create a computerized mockup of the smile you hope to achieve. We then create wax models of your teeth and use them to fine-tune such details as your bite, before beginning work on your actual teeth.

We offer Invisalign as an alternative to traditional braces. Less painful and less noticeable than braces, Invisalign is also removable. This allows you to eat normally and to brush and floss your teeth as you always have.
