Nominated for: BEST Dentist
Dr. Ty Etheridge grew up in Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula where he first recognized and began to develop his passion to work in the health care profession. Looking back, he recalls the day he dressed up as a dentist for the Career Day assembly in Kindergarten. Inspired by this childhood dream, Dr. Etheridge devoted himself to the realization of this ambition - to become a true family dentist, connected to and giving back to the community he serves.
While attending the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, Dr. Etheridge pursued his career with great dedication, graduating number one in his class in clinical operations. He received awards in comprehensive patient care for outstanding clinical performance and for his achievements in advanced aesthetics and cosmetic dentistry. Following graduation, he worked with two of the nations leading cosmetic dentists - Dr. Michael Koczarski (former co-director of Pacific Aesthetic Continuum), followed by the mentorship of Dr. Douglas Rossi (clinical instructor of Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry). Dr. Etheridge practices with the highest quality and standard of patient care for the whole family, whether the patients needs are simple or complex. He understands the importance of developing a genuine relationship in order to identify each and every one of his patients goals for their dental health.
Dr. Etheridge and his wife Rose will be working side by side. Rose will greet you as you arrive and be available to schedule all appointments and answer administrative questions. Rose and Dr. Etheridge share the dream to create a family centered practice in which they both can share the milestones of the families they serve over many years.
Ty and his team are the best ! Ty interupted his family time last summer to do an on the spot reseat of a crown I had fall out ( Ty had not done the original work) He ran into a pharmacy, got bonding stuff and met me aboard our sailboat in Port Townsend to resest the crown there in the cockpit! I forgot to mention this was over 4th of July !! I believe Ty now carries a "tools of the trade" bag in his car.
