meet-dr-beatyDr. Drew Beaty has owned and run his own dental practice in Federal Way for nine years now, but still has the enthusiasm of a recent graduate.  He is excited about his field, excited about his staff, and excited about his patients-both those already coming every six months and those he has yet to meet.  It’s not surprising to see that he has been voted a Seattle Top Dentist in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 by Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.

After graduation from dental school in 1998 and several years in public health practice, Dr. Beaty came to the Seattle area for a visit and fell in love with the area. He met his wife, Kristin, a registered dental hygienist who works with him now, at a West Seattle clinic and in 2004 bought his current practice in Federal Way.

He’s learned so much about business since buying his practice from an older, retiring dentist.  He has worked to make it his own since day one and still works to be constantly improving.  Dr. Beaty has a motivated, energetic, caring team of which he is proud to be a member.  He takes over 100 Continuing Education credits each year, four times the required amount for dentists.  He uses the courses to not only improve his dentistry, learning new technology and techniques, but also to improve his office and management.  The office is Envirostar rated with three stars and are working to incorporate more green practices still.

In his own words he runs an office that provides great, high quality care.  They work hard to have a big impact in the community both locally and at large.  They are planning their second dental mission trip to Jamaica as a staff.

Dr. Beaty understands that dentists and dental work can be nerve wracking for people and especially new patients.  He believes their office does everything they can to lessen nerves.  If you’re looking for a dentist that doesn’t scare you, look for:

  • An office that makes an effort to see patients same day if necessary. There is nothing worse than nursing a toothache for days because you’re too nervous to go in and the office is then too busy to see you for weeks.
  • An office that gives you a no-rush appointment, ideally caring for you as the only patient in your allotted appointment time.
  • An office that makes you comfortable during appointments by offering noise cancelling headphones.
  • A practice that stays on top of new technology and care practices like cancer screenings or AED.
  • Extra effort to reduce pain as necessary whether by topical gel, extra anesthetic, nitrous gas, or other sedation techniques.
  • An office and a dentist with the heart of teachers, taking time and care to explain what they are doing and why.
  • Dr. Beaty’s office does all of the above and as he said, “Dental work shouldn’t be frustrating or bad or negative.”  He’s right.  His office, practice, and philosophy of care are centered around making a dental experience you want to tell your friends and family about instead of avoid.  Dr. Beaty’s Family and Cosmetic Dentistry Office in Federal Way is definitely worth the visit.
