have I found a dentist that I trust, is completely painless (both in the treatment & scheduling, availability, aftercare, communication, etc.)& that strives to make me feel comfortable, while also working on the best plan for me and my budget like Dr. Ngo has. I have pretty serious dental issues, but the Doc always explains exactly what is the best course for me, and even though I have pretty severe anxiety about dental work, he has the most gentle touch, that I feel my anxiety dissipating after each visit. I will never visit another dentist.

Description of Experience: I was referred to Dr. Ngo by a denturist in the neighborhood. I have since left the Denturist due to shoddy, uncomfortable dentures. The only good thing that came out of the experience is that I have found a first class dentist. Some of the reasons I rate Dr. Ngo so highly: - He takes pride in his work. He is not satisfied until he has surpassed his own high standards. - Dr. Ngo is, without a doubt, the most knowledgable dentist, indeed medical provider, I have ever met. He can answer any question, and is quite bright, so his answers are always clear and concise. - Dr Ngo stands behind his work. Through no fault of his own, I had to have some work redone. The new charges were figured after the original work on the teeth was deducted. - Creation Dentistry charges very reasonable rates; I checked around. To make a VERY long story short, Dr Ngo took on a very challenging case when he agreed to work with me. Previous poor dental work had to be redone, sometimes with very little tooth left to work with. He hung in there through long detailed appointments that lasted over five hours in some cases. I have now referred Dr Ngo to my friends and family. As a matter of fact, he is currently treating my teenaged son.

Caden has changed my thoughts of going to the dentist office from miserable to something I look forward too. Some of the reasons I use to not enjoy going to the dentist office were..the 30 minute lobby wait times, the pain!, the feeling of just being a number instead of a patient, and the board-ism. Creation Dentistry eliminated all those bad thoughts and in fact turned them around completely. I never thought I would ever say that I enjoy going to the dentist, but it's a fun professional experience that leaves my mouth always feeling better than when I came. Hats off to your dentistry and thanks for all your quality work. I highly recommend Creation Detistry, and have to many.

After six months of regular visits, squeezed in at irregular hours to accommodate my crazy work schedule, I am pleased to say Dr. Caden has completed the ambitious project of restoring my teeth. I was terrified of the dentist, and hadn't been to see one since childhood. Many fillings and several crowns later, my smile is beautiful, and for the first time in years, pain-free. As a cash patient, I have been exceptionally well-treated; Dr. Ngo was totally upfront with me from the start on the costs of procedures and the relative risks of having certain ones left undone. This understanding is a welcome change compared to the usual dismissive attitude I am given after a medical provider learns that they will not be receiving the premiums they might normally get from a client who is carrying insurance. I have been incredibly pleased with his level of professionalism, his gentleness and courtesy, his sense of humor, and his attention to detail in every aspect of my treatment. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone seeking personalized, holistic dental care to give him a chance!

I have the misfortune of having genetically bad teeth. Over the years my molars have been breaking apart and requiring crowns. Some investigation led me to Creation Dentistry and Dr. Ngo. I am glad I found him. I need some extensive work and over next couple of weeks we will complete round one. This guy is great. Best dentist I have ever been to bar none. Based upon the work he has done so far he clearly knows what he is doing and can do it quick, well, and with very little discomfort. This was the first time I can say that being there was no a bad experience. Not even close. This guy will take care of you right. He is an excellent dentist. He takes the time to explain the procedures and costs so no one is surprised. And really truly he is a great guy. Very congenial. If he didn't have his hands in my mouth I think we could have a great conversation. Finally. as you make your way inside take a close look at the interior design. The space has a beautiful and amazing feel. And you can thank Dr Ngo for that as well. The design and implementation of the decor was all him. So if you need a dentist I would recommend Creation Dentistry and Dr. Ngo without hestitation.

I have never in my life life seen a dentist who could do the work of 3 to 4 people and stay on top of everything. Dr. NGO not only cares about people and what he does, he is very compassionate. He took the time to explain everything with out any hesitation. This is the go to guy for all your dental needs. I had two teeth extracted over 8 hours ago and I have yet to feel a thing. Unlike most dentists, this Doc takes his time while doing his work to make sure it is done right and professionally. Please give him a visit.

I was very happy with and surprised by my last visit to the Dentist. Not only was the receptionist very friendly so was the Dr.Caden Ngo himself. They are both truly nice people. The enviroment was surprising as well. It was like an old English Bed and Breakfast with state of the art equipment and a Flat Sceen Video Screen playing video about saving ecosystems. (Something I believe is much more important than global warming!) I experienced no pain other than the slight necessity of the novacaine shot and it was minimal because of the Doctors compassion. The rates are great and he always makes time to handle emergencies. I think Dr. Ngo hates the idea of others in pain! Michael with the good teeth.

This was not like any dentist appt I have ever had in my life! My wisdom tooth started hurting on a Tuesday. By Thursday I was in dyer pain. My friend referred me on Thursday to get an appt. with Dr. Ngo. I work Monday thru Friday in Kirkland and he offered to actually open his office on Friday night for me. When I came into the office I was like wow it looks like a very hip vintage shop threw up in here! The style was definitely not your typical freakily sterile environment. And then the coolest part EVER!....Caden asked what kind of music I liked and I said reggae so you no what? He put on some Bob Marley for us to jam while he extracted my wisdom tooth. Creation Dentistry was a very awesome experience and will become a Ballard staple!

Who wants to go to the dentist? Yeah right! I can finally say that I do like going to my dentist! I love my neighborhood in Ballard and decided to try Creation Dentistry because it was closest to my home and the outside of the building has caught my eye a few times. I walked in and WOW, Creation Dentistry has the coolest vibe and decor to match! You have to see this place to believe it! You don't even feel like your in a dentist office, it more like a funky retro design studio! I was greeted by the owner/do-it-yourself design star Dr. Caden Ngo. I learned more about the health of my teeth from Dr. Caden than I ever had from any other dentist! He spent a great deal of time with my evaluation and even completed my cleaning himself and Caden is very gentle and kind. My second visit was to remove some old silver fillings and replace them with white fillings. I actually was so relaxed that I FELL ASLEEP!!! I'm usually a bit nervous when I go to the dentist but the cool vibe of this office and Dr. Caden have a unusual way of putting me at ease. Dr. Caden is super gentle and his work is wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Caden Run, don't walk to Creation Dentistry! You wont be disappointed!

Fear of dentists - no more! Caden Ngo will relieve you of any fear and stress. He treats everyone with care and consideration. His practice is about his patients. I would refer/recommend him to anyone I know or don't know. I have been in the chair a lot taking care of "old" problems I neglected before because dentists were about them, not me. Thats no longer the case and I look forward to my appointments.

I came to Dr.Ngo with a LOT of problems with my teeth, and he was very sympathetic and has worked with me, trying to give me the best price he can. I'm normally terrified of dentists, but just walking through his door you get a sense of both calming,and excitement by the decor. Then your feels are reassured when you sit down and talk to him. He works fast and tries to make you as comfortable as possible. The last thing that I think is very important is that while hes working with you, he really tries to get to know you as a person, which I know has made me feel both comfortable and a like I can trust him. I truly feel that you wont be disappointed with Dr.Ngo or his work!

I have always been afraid of the dentist, but just walking into Creation Dentistry put me at ease. From the moment Dr. Ngo greeted me at the door until he walked me out of his office I was comfortable. I had a long visit as I had alot of work to do and for the entire session he expressed concern for my comfort, asking if I was okay and allowing me breaks to rest. Dr. Ngo was thorough in his work and motivating regarding home care and even worked late to meet all my needs (fillings and a cleaning). He never made me feel embarrassed about my current dental condition and was encouraging that he would do everything he could to restore my smile. I will definitely be back for my 6 month check up! See you there!
