    review rating 5  When you walk through the doors, someone is always there greeting you with a hello and a warm smile. I have had braces for about 3 1/2 years now and, I’m almost done! None of my permanent teeth were pulled out during this process. They also respected all the things I wanted and didn’t want to happen to my teeth for braces. Excellent Dental Care have very generous and caring people. Excellent hard workers to have a conversation with as well. I highly recommend going to their dental office, especially if you’re planning to get braces. Braces might hurt and get in a way of eating your favorite foods but, they’re definitely worth it!

  • review rating 5  Awesome place to go...my past dentist moved his practice out of state some years ago and I bounced around place to place trying to find a good dentist when we gave Excellent Dental a try. It's been almost four years at this office now and we love it. Friendly staff, great care and service. Audrey and Thai are the absolute best! You will not be disappointed 🙂

    review rating 5  We are surprise not seeing many reviews online, good nor bad. Perhaps they operate on word of mouth and referals. You can't go wrong, either from staff to Doctors, and to their new relaxing building. Keep up the good work!! Thank you.

    review rating 5  Our entire family have been patients of Dr.Nguyen for many years. They have taken great care of all of us with each person having a varied individual need and personality. Two of my sons are currently recovering Ortho treatment as well and he has been great. He explains everything in detail and his main concern is overall mouth and jaw health. It makes me feel good to know that we are taken care of completely and the staff all know us and I know they genuinely care. One of my children has special needs and he is now an adult but they have always taken time to work with him at his own level and ability. We have been to both the Auburn and Tacoma office and we truly appreciate the kind service we have always received, it is rare to have such a great team and staff that work so well together but they have it there.

  • review rating 5  Been coming here for two years now. Above average knowledge as they told me I had been grinding my teeth as I slept which I'd never been told that by other dentists. Professionally run office with low turnover of the staff. They stay on top of their game---you won't be disappointed.

    review rating 5  From the friendly staff, to the excellent doctors, if you ever want to be treated like family this is the place to go. They call and leave you nice reminders before every appointment and make sure you don't miss your cleanings. Best of all they work around your schedule!

    review rating 5  If you are looking for a family dentist please look no further. I have been coming here since I was a little girl. I appreciate their diverse staff that are able to speak different languages. This creates a welcoming environment. My siblings had their braces done here and their results are stunning. My semiannual cleaning are always quick but thorough. All of their staff are very professional and they carr about making you feel comfortable. I never leave without a smile or feeling like I did not receive a good cleaning. My extended family comes here as well and we are grateful that there are two locations. They work with your schedule. I highly recommend this establishment.

    review rating 5  The Auburn clinic is a new building and has brand new equipment. It seems so comfortable, so zen, so spacious, feel like being at home. Dr. Nguyen took his time with every patient and very efficient at it, you don't notice that they left you alone at any time. The staff always has a genuine smile. We go a bit further for the Auburn clinic, though the Tacoma clinic has the same welcoming staff.

  • review rating 5  I have had 70 years experience with dentistry both as a patient and as a chair side assistant. Most recently I visited Dr Audrey Nguyen DDS. She is the best dentist I have had the pleasure of visiting. She is so gentle and cares deeply about the comfort of her patients. She takes time to discuss cares, concerns and treatment options. A big concern for most people is having to wait endlessly for their appointments...NEVER with Dr Nguyen. She respects her patient's time. I have been seated right after check in at the front desk. The office staff is friendly and professional. The office and the treatment areas are always very clean and well organized. I highly recommend Excellent Dental care for all your dental needs for any age. Thank you.

    review rating 5  I really am starting to love this place the staff and my dentist make it feel like home. But I can only stay for another 6 months and I turn 21 which means I can't come anymore. which makes me sad because I really loved getting to know this place and how much the emphasize good dental hygiene has made me take flossing serious. I really going to miss this place!

  • review rating 5  My family and I have come to Excellent Dental Care (EDC) at both Tacoma and Auburn locations for the last 10 years. My sister and I had braces done by Dr. Thai. He did a very great job. The good part is we did not have to take any teeth out as we were told by others. Also, the staff is very friendly. They always make you feel comfortable. I highly recommend EDC for the dental care.
