Advanced Technology used in our Office

We have been very selective in choosing the advanced dental technologies and procedures which have the biggest impact on improving the level of care for our patients. Our use of digital xrays allows us to obtain images of teeth with enhanced diagnostic value at a fraction of the radiation level compared to film-based xrays.

We also utilize an advanced laser cavity detection system that allows us to find certain types of cavities much earlier and treat them more conservatively. This helps us achieve our goal of emphasizing prevention over treatment and also selecting modes of treatment which are minimally invasive.

We are also excited about some very powerful diagnostic tests that can be performed simply from an analysis of a person’s saliva. Advances in genetic research allow us to quickly determine the specific strains of bacteria which may be contributing to a patient’s periodontal infection– this allows us to tailor our therapy with greater precision and improves outcomes. These same tests can also find genetic markers in patients which we know put them at a much higher risk for aggressive periodontal disease and can identify Human Papiloma Virus–a known risk factor and causative agent for some oral cancers.

Our goal has always been to take the best possible care of our patients and just as we take the time to get to know each patient’s individual needs and concerns, we also take the time to measure the benefits of emerging technologies so that we are not simply adopting technology for the sake of being hi-tech.

See What Patients Say About Us

  • "A warm and welcoming dental practice with a top notch team. I live in another city now and genuinely miss visiting Madrona Family Dental because of my fantastic conversations with Kristen!"
    - Kelly Stevens
  • "As someone who has always hated going to the dentist, I can say Dr. Tarr and his hygienists are the best out there. I hated getting my teeth cleaned because it was always painful, but the dental hygienists at the office are so good I am never in pain and it’s over before I know it."
    -Meagan W.
  • "I have some very specific needs for dentistry that have caused me tremendous issues in the past, but Dr Tarr and his amazing staff are by far the best dental experience I've ever had in every way."
    - Anonymous
  • "Dr. Loren Tarr and his entire staff are the most courteous and professional team, front office and back, I have ever encountered. The dental care provided by Dr. Tarr and his hygienists is second to none. My teeth and gums are healthier than before I started coming here (thanks to their encouragement to WaterPik). There was a mistake made by a lab once when I was getting a decades-old crown replaced; Dr. Tarr made sure to set everything right. (And the crown is amazing! It feels like a real tooth.) Madrona Family Dental gets my highest recommendation."
