We would like to thank the professional team of our local dentist, Dr. Kelly Garwood, and her lovely staff – Sally, Ann and Sophia.

Being the daughter of a retired dental hygienist and pediatric dentist, I am very particular regarding my family of six’s dental needs. The University of Washington’s school of dentistry is a nationally highly regarded program, which makes us very lucky to have one of their graduates return home to the Valley to establish her practice.

Dr. Garwood and her wonderful staff have been extraordinarily helpful to our family. Our newest daughter, adopted from Russia, has especially benefited from their quality of care.

Throughout her procedures we have been reassured by Dr. Garwood’s caring and expertise and the staff’s thoughtfulness to all the members of our family. Thank you so very much.

Kathleen and Scott Eagan and family
