I have been a patient of Dr. Nicolini's since his arrival in Seattle in 1992. He also cares for my spouse and daughter. We believe him to be a true professional and would recommend him to care for ones dental needs without a moments hesitation.

I was referred by a friend and am extremely happy with Dr. Nicoline and his staff. I had been searching for the right dentist knowing I needed some help and Dr. Nicolini was the right fit. Non-judgemental office willing to be straight forward about what needs to be done and works with insurance to make sure it is covered. They fit me into their schedule and then made accommodations for me two days after my first appointment for follow up work. i recommend without reservation.

Seattle, WA |
I've been a patient of Dr. Nicolini's since he joined the practice years ago. He's thorough, friendly and I don't feel pressured to proceed with unnecessary procedures. His staff are awesome - helpful, professional and I considered them trusted advisors on my dental health.
Seattle, WA |
Dr. Nicolini was professional and thorough and inspired confidence in his recommendations on my treatment plan. He was also considerate and put me at ease which is hard to do for me at the dentist's office.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Nicolini runs a topnotch practice as he is the top, like the Eiffel Tower or the Mona Lisa. Very friendly, courteous and professional-that would describe him and his fellow practitioners and office staff. He is always honest in his evaluation, in providing feedback and options for care and never pressures one regarding any service or procedure. I have been his patient for about 10 years and I would not even consider going to anyone else for my dental care including oral hygiene.
in Mercer Island, WA |
I always receive excellent care. I'm sure i'm not alone; today, the staff were very kind to the small child in the waiting room. His mom said he'd only been to the dentist once before, and they did a great job making him feel comfortable.
in Freeland, WA |
Dr. Nicolini has been my dentist for over 20 years and although we have changed locations and houses over those years, I have never changed dentists. It is important to me that I go to expert who has the connections and expertise to either do the work, or consult to get the best decisions for my care. My entire family has been under his professional care, and that is a strong reccomendation. Follow up and staff are strong reasons to use this office.
in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Nicolini and his staff provide consistently great dental work. Cleanings, exams, chairside veneers, etc. - are all exceptional. Chairside veneers look beautiful, natural and are well matched. Office schedule runs on time. They provide great value.
Seattle, WA |
I've been seeing Dr. Nicolini for years, since he took over the practice from his predecessor. One of the things I appreciate the most is he doesn't push me to procedures I don't really need, and recommends treatment strategies that are beneficial and necessary. I enjoy the entire team!
