I've never met such a caring, patient, kind, professional and detail-oriented dentist practice. Dr. Patricia and her staff are all super reliable and skilled. They really go above and beyond to ensure your dental health and I'm grateful we found her.

The only issue I have is that the office hours are limited. No Fridays or Saturday and they close at 4. Hard for working people. Everything else was top quality.

I had a great experience with Patricia - they accommodate 7:00am appointments which is perfect so I can still make it to work by 8am. This was the most pleasant teeth cleaning experience I've had, and they have screens to let you watch shows! Patricia is very informative on which teeth you should watch out for, teeth whitening, etc. I'm starting to enjoy my dentist appointments - which has never happened before! Book early - she fills up fast!

I've been going to Dr. Shigihara for several years. She is such a wonderful person, very professional & her staff is super helpful and friendly! She always takes the time to educate you on what she's doing - to go over different options when I am faced with teeth issues and the pros/cons for each option to help me make an informed decision.   She is very honest, really cares about her patients and provides excellent service!

I've been going to Dr. Shigihara my whole life (20+ years), so unfortunately I can't compare her to anyone else. However, what I can say is that I LOVE going to the dentist, any have never understood people who don't like it. That in itself should be enough reason for you to go to Dr. Shigihara.

Now that I have moved away from Seattle I realize it's easy to find a dentist that I think I can trust. If I ever return I will go to Dr. Shigihara in an instant.

I've been a patient for probably over 5 years now and even though she was not a preferred dentist of my last dental plan I happily paid the extra so I didn't have to leave.
I left my old dentist because of the hard sell for getting anything that "could" be a problem down the road fixed immediately. Dr Shigihara is attentive and keeps an eye on any problems without trying to nickel and dime you for every expensive procedure out there.
Staff are always friendly and professional. I love that they have 7am appointments so I can still make it to work on time.

After going to another dentist for many years, and getting sub-par cleanings for my teeth, I started going to Dr. Shigihara's office once I moved to Seattle. It took two hours to get my teeth back in shape again and a separate appointment to finish the initial exam and fill a cavity. I had my doubts at first because I didn't know if they were trying to take longer to make more money from my insurance. However, I am now certain that they were just being thorough--it took awhile to fix what the last dentist hadn't been attending to. Now, my teeth are in good shape. I just had my 6-month appointment since my initial visit, and it took less than an hour! I should also mention that they have individual TV's for procedures that may take awhile. It's great watching while having your teeth worked on. My husband, who is rather fearful of going to dentists, actually came away from his first experience feeling much more at ease because of the TV (to distract him), and the friendly staff.

It is so comforting to find a caring and gentle dentist that is both knowledgeable and honest. Dr Shigihara and her crew fit the criteria and are all very nice and friendly.

The office has all the latest dental equipment and even some screens with headsets to watch and listen to the internet while being examined. For kids, it's also so suitable. They are so careful and gentle that even kids go out of the place loving it and wanting to come back.

They were very considerate - when the insurance came back to me with some balance for my full mouth x-rays and my husband's, they wrote it off.

My family and I are very pleased with them and the excellent service they provide.

I recently visited Dr. Shigihara's office regarding post wisdom teeth extraction by a different dentist. I had an emergency situation and they were very understanding and got me in immediately. Once I arrived I received nothing but outstanding service starting with the front desk. Everyone was very concerned and made sure I got the best care for my serious infection. I would highly recommend this office for anyone. I felt as if I had been going there for years.

I inherited Dr. Shigihara.  Or perhaps she actually inherited me.  She took over Dr. Barney's practice after he decided to retire, spend time with his family, and give back to the community (by volunteering at Pike Place Market - what a guy!). She's a great listener and problem solver.  She has never pushed me to have work done that I wasn't ready for.  The real gem in this joint is her staff - from the hygienists to the front desk. These folks are consistently cheery and helpful - the kind of folks who want to hear about your recent vacation or grandpa's illness.
I have the best hygienist, EVER! I won't even tell you her name. She's semi-retired and only works 2 days per week and I don't want to compete with you for appointments with her!

I've been a patient of Dr Shigihara, or Dr Pat for over 15 years. She is a great dentist! Always takes the time to explain what she is doing and why. She even came in on her day off a few years back to take care of my emergency root canal. Also, has put together a great staff-dental hygienists and front office.
