    Seriously, this is the dentist for you. He does his best to calm dentist phobia including giving me NO2. The office and staff are very nice and extremely clean. That was a bit of an issue for me with my past dentist. I just had a crown put in and it went so smoothly compared to the one I had done before.

    Dr. Sage and his staff are the best! Always accommodating, available, and nice. Although I do get scolded for not flossing enough, I know it's only for my own good. I recently had veneers done and I couldn't be happier with the results. I get compliments all the time, and I'm smiling more than ever! My whole family goes there, and I recommend him to anyone that is looking for a great dentist!

    I came to Dr. Sage as a self-proclaimed Dentist hater. But let me tell you, Dr. Sage is top notch! He's smart, funny, understanding, and he not money-hungry like previous dentist of mine. He truly does what's best for his patients. Not only is Dr. Sage awesome but his staff are friendly and approachable. Erika is the best ever. She always makes me smile and she's accommodating and explains things so well. Marcy is also so kind and remembers everything! The techs are great too- not too pokey. Overall a 6/5 experience at Dr. Sage's office.

    I have been going to Dr.Sage for about a year and I can honestly say hes the best dentist I have been to! I needed a lot of work done, mostly old work redone. I've only met one other DDS of this caliber and I've seen a lot of offices trying to find the right one! now that I found him I have recommended him to several people including my wife who would not stop talking about how great he was! She has had nothing but traumatic experience with dental work in the past but feels like she's in very good hands with Sage family Dentistry. The staff are amazing, they remember little things we talked about and have a genuine feel about them. Super friendly and flexible to accommodate my hectic schedule. The thing that really sold me was when Dr. sage called me personally to check up on me after a operation I had. He and his staff make it well worth the drive from Marysville.

    Let me start off by saying that "I do not like dentists due to many, not so amazing experiences" with other dentists. I honestly can say that I love everyone and everything about Sage Family Dentistry. Dr. Sage thank you for creating such a nurturing, caring, fun environment to visit. Every visit has been nothing less than superb!! Your professional expertise and advice has been spot on each and every treatment. I have never had a dentist call me the day after an appointment asking me how I'm doing! Thank you for the past 4 years of service and I look forward to many more.... I highly recommend this Dr. Sage and his staff for any dental services you may need!

    Dr. Sage and his staff are hands down the best dentisrty team in Seattle, my teeth were neglected for a decade and within one year my dental health has turned from a shit show to getting compliments on how good my teeth look. Anya,and Ann are such competent, caring technicians and so fast in assisting Dr. Sage it is like they have a psychic link. That means less time in the chair, which we all can appriciate. But above all everyone in his office cares, and they will make a plan for you to make sure from top to bottom your oral health is taken care of, they will start with the most problematic quadrant of your mouth and work each one until your mouth is compleatly healthy. I've been to dentists that don't care about me or my health and just a paycheck. It's alway a horrable experience, If you are dealing with that kind of dentist, please tell them to f# off and go to Dr. Sage. Plus the front desk is occupied by Zetta, one of my favorite people in the world, she is one of the sweetest, kindest people on earth. She has made the insurance battle that we all have had something that I don't even have to think about, if you want the best dentist team in Seattle, well... you just found it.
