Dr. Folkman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Folkman "I was born in Seattle and grew up here in Issaquah. In 1964, my father opened this office and I joined him in 1991 practicing as an associate before purchasing the practice in 1994. I am proud to say this is the only dental practice I have been associated with. I worked with my father until he retired in 2003 and I hope to work here until I am ready to retire as well. I fell in love with Dentistry in my youth when I would enjoy coming to the office as a child. I was fascinated with the fusion of art, technology, precision, relationships, trust and compassion that is required to practice Dentistry. I went into general practice because I love the lifelong relationships that are built in family practice. We have seen four generations of families here. As much as anything else, I enjoy working alongside my great dental team. We are very close and we truly love working together to provide our patients with the best dentistry that we can. I will always consider that my greatest professional accomplishment."

This is my family! The Folkman's have been my only dentists. With the care, friendship and professionalism I receive, I would not consider going anywhere else.
