Bright Now Dental’s Suman Chintala, D.M.D. will lead the clinical team in the new Woodinville office. Chintala previously practiced in Bright Now Dental’s office in Lynnwood. When asked about his approach to patient care, Dr. Chintala said “I take a conservative approach to patient care trying to preserve a patient’s natural tooth/teeth whenever possible.” “I believe that educating my patients about their options is essential as patients make the decisions on their treatment so ensuring patients are comfortable and satisfied are long term goals set for every patient interaction,” Dr. Chintala continued.
The Woodinville office is open five days per week, with appointments available until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and is open on Saturdays from 9:00am – 1:00pm.
