Why Choose Simply Smiles by Stuart Rich, DDS, PS

Excellence in Treatment

  • Doctor Rich and the Simply Smiles team have been chosen in the Auburn Reporter “Best of Auburn” surveys and a “Top Dentist” in the annual report in Seattle Met magazine. Through the collective efforts of our entire team, we have been selected for top honors in both of those publications for 7 consecutive years and counting.

    The Auburn Reporter award is based upon a popular vote survey of its readership each Fall.  The Seattle Met survey is more involved.  The magazine partners with national survey company TopDentists, which sends ballots to all dentists listed online with the American Dental Association and other local dental societies in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce counties, asking, “If you had a patient in need of a dentist, which dentist would you refer them to?”

    Each general dentist evaluated specialists and each specialist evaluated general dentists whose work she or he is familiar with based on years of experience, continuing education, manner with patients, use of new techniques and technologies, and physical results. Dentists with the highest average ratings were confirmed to have active licenses and to be in good standing with the Washington State Department of Health before being selected for the final list.

    We are honored to have been selected in both of these surveys for so many years, and look forward to meeting you.  Of course, our greatest compliments come from our patients themselves, and you can read their comments in the hundreds of positive online reviews we have on places like www.DoctorOogle.com, Google+ and Healthgrades.com.  Thank you for considering our office to care for your dental health needs.  It would be our privilege to care for you. Give us a call TODAY at 253-939-6900 to set up your new patient exam and cleaning.

  • Dr. Rich is one of only a few sedation dentists in our area that is trained in oral sedation by the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation.
  • We are one of only a few offices in South King County that have the VELscope® early cancer detection technology and use it annually on all re-care patients.

Exceptional Dentistry By Design…Exceptionally Caring By Nature

Quality Customer Service

  • Our team of doctors and staff sincerely care about our patients’ total experience. From your initial phone call, to your exam and cleaning, to the discussion of your financial options and right through any necessary treatment, we want each experience in our office to be unique, and of high quality.
  • We provide extra touches like complimentary warm paraffin hand dips, lip balm, memory foam chair pads and neck pillows, steamed towels at end of treatment and evening post-op calls by doctor.
  • Current patients always have access to someone who is on call for any off hours or weekend emergencies. Our patients NEVER get a recorded message that simply says “we are closed, please call back on Monday.”

Here’s what some of our patients have to say:

“Amazing, I am always comfortable and Dr. Rich is very caring and personal. He makes you feel like you are his only patient. His crew is fantastic too and always has been. My son became a dentist because of Dr. Rich! That says a LOT!”

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Rich since he came to this practice, and can honestly say that I look forward to my dental appointments. He is professional, state-of-the-art, and while I’m no dentistry expert, I always feel that I’m in the hands of one when in his office. The office staff has experienced little turn-over; they are welcoming, warm, and seem to genuinely care about me as a person. I can’t recommend this practice highly enough. I make the hour-long drive down from Seattle and wouldn’t dream of switching dentists.”

“Dr. Rich is the best dentist I have ever been to; not only is he fabulous, but the assistants are fabulous as well. I was very nervous about the pain; after about 15 minutes I knew I had nothing to worry about! It was nice that the assistant kept asking me if I was okay. It made me feel like she cared about my well-being.”

“Dr. Rich is a wonderful caring dentist. He and the entire staff are always very pleasant and take a personal interest in giving the best care possible. Dr. Rich has even called me in the evening from his home to ensure that all was well after my appointment. I would absolutely recommend him for any dental care needs.”

“Dr. Rich is a perfectionist, which is a trait you want in a dentist. He not only explains the treatment to the patient, he also instructs his assistants. From the moment you step into the office, someone is there to help you. The front desk employees are extremely helpful – and they do all the insurance for you! I would definitely recommend Dr. Rich. (You can even have a hand paraffin dip). Also, Dr. Rich has incorporated all the newest equipment into his dental care.”

“I have high dental anxiety but I have no problem going to Dr. Rich’s office. Everyone that works there is considerate and competent. The offices are beautiful, modern, clean and comfortable. The entire staff really goes the extra mile to make each visit a good one. Hot tea, paraffin dip for your hands–are you sure this is a dental office!?!”
