Dr. Ryan Etue, DMD
Dear Friend, I am a dentist, but like everyone else, my teeth need regular care to preserve them and to make them as attractive as possible. So, just like everyone else, I go the dentist to receive many of the procedures I deliver to my own patients. When I sat down to write goals for my practice, it occurred to me that the kind of dentistry I want to give to my patients was exactly the kind of dentistry I wanted to receive. And I can assure you, that I would hold my dentist to some pretty high standards. I would want my dentist to see me as an individual, to know me personally and not merely treat me as a chart number or just the next patient. I would want my dentist to foster this relationship by knowing what is important to me and respecting me as a person. And, I wouldn't want to be taken for granted, even years into our relationship. Although, I am probably as brave as the next person, I'd prefer, naturally, not to experience discomfort during my dental visit. I would want my dentist to have genuine concern for my comfort before, during, and after my treatment. I would want my dentist to have a thoroughly mattered pain free dental techniques and the ability to provide sedation when I ask. Maybe I am spoiled, but I get annoyed if I have to do too much waiting. I d much prefer if my dentist and staff were ready for when I arrived and would really like it if I were the only patient, so the doctor and staff could give me their full attention. I'm a stickler for quality, and these teeth are the only ones I'll ever have. I would choose a dentist who could provide me with the highest level of care, which is what I feel I deserve. I would appreciate someone who is painstakingly accurate in all the details of my treatment. So, what I want as a dental patient is what I hope you want, because the result of this kind of treatment is my true goal: optimal dental health and appearance. If you would like this kind of care, I would be happy to be your dentist. Sincerely Dr Ryan Etue , DMD

in Everett, WA |
I had extreme anxiety about going into the dentist's office, let alone oral surgery. Dr. Etue was very understanding and did everything he could to make me comfortable and explain to me everything that was happening. He is very gentle and caring and made me feel like he is a friend. He has done a lot to help me and I am most grateful.
