The Cascadia


We love kids (seriously!). Our approach to kids dentistry in Maple Valley and Kent reflects the care and concern we have for our own children.

Personalized Care

We partner with you to teach your bundles of joy the importance of healthy habits for their smiles and futures.

  • Every treatment plan is customized to your child’s needs and comfort level.

  • You can expect open and honest communication with you and your child.

  • We focus on the importance of prevention and proactive dentistry through easy-to-understand education.

Timely Comfort

Life is busy! The Cascadia Kids Dentistry team believes every appointment should be convenient and comfortable.

  • We focus on being punctual because we know life is hectic.

  • We use only the safest materials and techniques.

  • We’ll never push or pressure treatment plans. Instead, we teach kiddos to love taking care of their teeth.

Modern Amenities

We make dentistry fun for children and parents! Visit one of our two locations to experience our 5-star amenities!

  • We communicate via text, phone, and email – you choose your preferred method.

  • TVs above every dental chair.

  • Computerized office and digital x-rays.

Here's how we ensure every child feels comfortable and safe at the dentist!

Icon of the number one.
Communication is imperative. Dr. Nick will get to know you and your family with one-on-one communication.
Icon of the number two.
Did your child have a bad experience in the past? We drop down to their level and discuss those past experiences with them to gain trust.
Icon of the number three.
We won't lean that chair back right away. Instead, we let your child feel empowered to love the dentist and give them control in their dental care.
Icon of the number four.
Every appointment is tailored to your child. From finding the perfect Netflix movie and using the same team every time, your child will love the dentist.
If the above options do not work, we do offer in-office sedation and general anesthesia.

J.M., Patient's Mom:

“My kid would never let any dentist touch his mouth before. I am SO thankful I chose to see Dr. Nick! Jimmy has been so good about brushing his teeth and flossing – without me telling him to do so!”
