See Why So Many People Trust Northwest Dental Services with Their Teeth in Tacoma, WA

OfficeBuildingNWDS is moving into our third generation of our family-owned denture and dental practice in Tacoma, Washington. We have been conveniently located in Tacoma’s Downtown Theater district for over 50 years!

Vallan (Val) has been licensed for over 20 years. He ran in the public “Initiative-607” with his father, Chet, to help create the profession he and his father loved, to make denturists legal dental providers in the state of Washington.

Before he helped out with the initiative he worked in our onsite laboratory polishing dentures in his high school years. He later went to Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and graduated with a business major. He married his college sweetheart, Mary, and they had three daughters together.

Today, Val continues on the family tradition of helping as much as possible in the community, both in volunteering and in helping people regain their smiles!

Megan will receive her denturist license in August 2015. She has worked at the office and in the laboratory throughout high school and college. She graduated in May 2014 from Washington State University with a Human Development Major.

Megan cannot wait to continue the family traditions of helping and serving the community.

In order to best stay with the new treatment options and choices now available with the newest technology, our staff contributes to events to stay up to date.

Val, our dentist Dr. Jon Martin, and multiple assistants have gone to courses in recent years to learn more about how to best serve our patients with newer technology like fixed hybrid dentures, and extensive implant treatment.

Our laboratory technicians, including Val’s younger brother, Kevin, have also gone through rigorous training to best serve you and your family with implant treatment.

Our twelve team staff is here to serve you, whatever your need may be. Our family-oriented approach is here to serve you and your family in the best way possible.
