33+ Years of Real Satisfied Dental Patients

Everyone at First Impressions is super great. Even though they are really busy they make an effort to get everyone scheduled and taken care of. The work they do is fast and well done. I got 4 fillings done in an hour which was way faster than where I’ve been other places, but the quality of work doesn’t suffer at all. In fact it’s better. They have the speed and quality of work you want.

I've had nothing but good experiences at First Impression Dental Care in all the years Dr. Ron has been my dentist. I'm especially impressed, during these covid times, how seriously they've taken their patients safety. It's the trust, that I'll be well cared for, that keeps myself & my family returning to Dr. Ron. I also trust dental work will only be recommended if really needed. Dr. Ron & the hygienists are gentle, thorough, & personable. I'm very pleased with the years of care the team has given my smile!

The entire team at First Impressions Dental Care have been top level A+ for the entire 15 years I have been a patient. From someone who has, in the past, never liked going to a dentist appointment - Dr Ron and his team have completely changed my mind. They are thoughtful in their processes, very well educated, incredibly thorough, non judging and they have created an environment that is lovely and peaceful. With all credit to First Impressions I now actually LOVE going to my dentist appointments!

I highly recommend First Impressions Dental Care and Dr. Sherman. They are all friendly and professional. Dr. Sherman takes time to explain issues and offer options which I greatly appreciate. I have a complicated schedule and they always find a way to work me in when I need care outside of routine cleanings/exam. I especially like that I don’t feel like he is trying to “sell” me extra procedures which seems to have become a practice in some of the newer corporate practices.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ron Sherman and First Impressions Dental Care for many years. A good friend of mine had referred me and she and her entire family have been going there forever. It's one of the BEST referrals I've ever received and can't say enough WONDERFUL things about Dr. Sherman and his staff. They are top-notch from the moment you call, walk in the door, get treatment, and leave making your next appointment. FIRST CLASS all the way!!!

I have been going to Dr. Sherman since I was 8 years old (now 24) and have never had a bad experience! The entire staff is super friendly and always makes you feel welcomed. Their dental hygentists are very personable and make you feel comfortable. Dr. Sherman really cares about his relationships with his patients and wants them to feel at ease no matter how in depth the visit is going to be.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you require dental treatment or are interested in enhancing your pearly whites, calling our office is one of the best ways to get in touch. With a quick and convenient chat, you can have any specific questions answered right away. However, we also understand that your schedule can be busy or that you prefer doing your research before getting treatment. For this reason, our team has compiled and responded to some of the most commonly asked questions our dentist in Issaquah gets from our patients. Read on to learn more!

How Much Does a Dental Checkup & Cleaning Cost?

In many cases, the cost of dental checkups and cleanings can vary based on factors like geography and a patient’s oral health. For instance, someone with healthier teeth may not need as much done for them as a person struggling with gum disease. Typically, these appointments involve reviewing your medical history, discussing your concerns, and taking X-rays of your mouth to help with a thorough oral examination. We’ll also perform an oral cancer screening to see if we need to address any indications we might detect. On average, these visits can cost around $200 and $350, but your out-of-pocket expenses can be lower if your dental insurance plan covers them.

How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

You’ll want to first call our dental office if you require emergency treatment. One of our staff members will be able to walk you through how to manage your symptoms until your visit as well as schedule your appointment for the soonest time. However, if your situation is dire or life-threatening, then you should call 911 right away or visit your local ER immediately. They’ll be able to help alleviate symptoms and discomfort, but they won’t be equipped to treat your oral health issue. It’s also worth mentioning that most dental emergencies are signs of an underlying problem that can often be prevented with routine oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist. If you want to avoid complications in the future, don’t hesitate to call our team!

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment with a Dentist?

To make a same-day appointment, it’s best to call our dental office. You may not get an answer as quickly if you send an email. Furthermore, a direct phone call will allow our team to better understand your oral health situation so that we can receive the best care right away when you arrive. Most practices keep an extra operatory (exam room) just in case we need to perform emergency dentistry and/or same-day appointments. The focus of a same-day appointment is typically to evaluate your condition, find the root of any discomfort, and create a personalized treatment plan. However, we can also provide advanced services during these visits if necessary.

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Most preventive dental treatments are affordable, as they can help you avoid more complicated oral health issues and save money in the long run. That said, if you have dental insurance, you may be able to significantly lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Feel free to consult our knowledgeable team and we’ll be happy to help you navigate the details of your plan and make the most of your benefits! We’re also partnered with a third-party financier called CareCredit which can break up the overall cost of your dental treatments into monthly payments with little to no interest.
