Excellent experience as soon as you walk in, the reception is welcoming, and Dr. Lim is a delight.
They know how to make your child smile 😃 …
Dr. DK is awesome. He always explains what’s happening with my child’s care. He also lets me know what to expect going forward. Clients for 8+ years and are very happy.
My 4 year old wouldn’t even consider opening her mouth for my dentist. She had a dark spot on one of her teeth and was outright scared that the dentist would pull it out. Janeylynn did her first cleaning and made my daughter comfortable right away. Dr. DK is so kind, and explained to her what was happening. She loved the kid friendly environment, underwater theme, complete with a betta named Elsa. We both like the nice people who work there and appreciate the kindness and compassion everyone showed us. The best part for me is that she actually asked to go back. Thank you, Dr. DK and staff; we will see you in 6 months.
My daughter goes here, and we have had nothing but great experiences! She just had a cavity that needed to be filled and was really worried about it, but Dr. DK and his staff were so patient with her and explained everything they were doing. I would happily recommend them to anyone!
Dr. Lim "DK" and staff are amazing. He has an excellent bedside manner and is a great dentist. My son has had a (light) emergency visit, and DK called the next day to follow up—and it was a weekend. He really cares about his patients. His staff is friendly, too.
Dr. DK and the entire staff are super nice and thorough, entire visit was a great experience for my son and I! Dr. DK is great at communicating everything he's doing, which made my son more comfortable, He's super excited to see you all again! Update: I can't express my gratitude enough for Dr. DK and his staff, My son had an after-hours emergency recently, and I was so impressed at Dr. DK's quick and thorough response and expediting treatment to ensure my son was not in any discomfort. Thank you again for all your support, I highly recommend this office!
Always a great experience for my son. Everyone is great. Dr. DK is very patient, informative, and personable, which is great for the kids and parents!
Dr. DK and his staff are so kind. We love it there! I have a special needs child, and he is so wonderful with her. Such a nice man. Thank you!
Awesome staff that is great with anxious kids. They are all patient and understanding, and they even work well with my ASD son, who can be somewhat oppositional.
Dr. DK and his entire staff are amazing. They truly care about their patients. I highly recommend it for your kiddos!
My 9-year-old son was seeing Dr. DK in Tukwila, and we followed the doctor here to this new office. The movie in the waiting area is nice, and also the monitors overhead, so the kids can watch while they get their cleaning. What a great idea! Dr. DK explained things thoroughly when I asked about a certain dental issue that my son has, and recommended free or very cheap mitigation first. The front desk staff seems friendly and experienced; the hygienist worked really well with my kid. The only downside is that appointments fill up fast, so you may have to wait a few weeks to schedule your appointment.
All around, great service! From the ladies at the front desk to the back office. My kids always have the best experience with Dr. DK and his staff. Warm and welcoming environment. Not only are they super informative, but they truly care for their patients aftercare. We appreciate you all at Alderwood Children’s Dentistry!
Dr. DK and his staff have been wonderful with my boys. Being a busy mom of 2 makes it really hard to have time for appointments, and they have been great about getting them seen at the same time and getting everything done in one appointment if they can. I really appreciate how flexible they are.
I really enjoyed having my kids see Dr. DK! He is a wonderful dentist and was able to ease my kids when they were getting treatment. I am so happy that I found this cute office! 100% recommend!!
I was hesitant at first when I took my daughter to the clinic, as Dr. Clint, the original owner of the practise, had retired. But I must say I was blown away by Dr. DK! He not only did a great job with our appointment but also took the time to follow up with us over the weekend to make sure our daughter was doing well (she needed fillings). Who does that anymore! I can't recommend him enough! Thank you, Dr. DK!
Agar, who is not yet a year old, I was very worried, but at first I was a little nervous, but I quickly became close with the doctor and went to see the doctor confidently. Above all, Dr. DK kindly explained the condition of the child's teeth and gave very good advice on what to do in the future. thank you!
Dr. DK is for the kids! Great for entire family and makes parents feel like they made the right choice. Your kids will thank you in 15 years, I guarantee it!
I love this office and their staff. They are very kind, professional, and great with kids. My son is 6 and like most kids, he is nervous for dental and doctor visits. The hygienist and dentist connected well with my son and made him feel at ease. When his dad asked how the dentist went he said with a smile on his face "the dentist was very nice and so was the nurse." It was great to hear and experience.
I can’t recommend this dental practice enough! I went here as a kid and grew up loving going to the dentist. We initially took my son somewhere else that was closer to our house without success. We decided it was worth the drive to go to Alderwood Children’s Dentistry and they did not disappoint! My son actually had fun! The office has a wonderful ocean themed atmosphere. It is truly special to have a dentist who cares about your kid and their comfort. I am so thankful for Dr. Clint and his amazing team, they did a fantastic job!
My kids have terrible teeth. We've spent a lot of time here! We've been coming here for a couple years. Dr. Clint and his staff are all AMAZING. They take time to really make sure my children are comfortable and cared for. They are great at communicating with me about my children's dental issues, I always feel all my questions have been answered. Since we've been coming here I don't think any of the staff have changed and I think that speaks to what a great environment they have. Other offices seem to have new staff at every visit. I love the consistency of seeing the same people every time. Highly recommend! 100% positive experience!
My kiddos have been going here since they had teeth! The staff is fabulous, and the new dentist, Dr. DK, is a knowledgeable, friendly, and warm person.
Dr. DK and his team are great! The office is welcoming, kid-friendly, and clean, and the staff is great at what they do! Dr. DK was so good with my son, who needed a filling. He was gentle and comforting while doing what he needed to get done! Highly recommend!
My 10 year old needed a tooth extracted, and Dr. DK was amazing. He did a fabulous job working with my son.
Always a positive experience for our nervous kiddo!
The staff is super friendly and gentle with my kids. Dr. DK made my kids very comfortable and always made sure they were fine! He’s great with kids. I’m so happy with this clinic!
For children, having a positive dental experience can have a lifelong impact. Dr.K has been wonderful. He is caring, friendly, thorough, and, best of all, my child doesn’t dread going to the dentist one bit. Highly recommend!
Finally, I found a good dentist for my daughter. They are super nice and know what kids want. 3yr old girl didn't even cry and liked to go there.
Such a talented patient staff!
Great experience! It was my first visit, and Dr. DK and Celina did a great job! They were really nice and made my visit smooth and enjoyable. He walked me through all the steps of my procedure or service and made me feel safe and comfortable about what was being done. Also, the whole office is super cute and welcoming.
Phenomenal bedside manner, especially from the new doctor. These people understand how to work with children. It is unlikely that we would ever take our business elsewhere.
My daughter had to get a few teeth pulled and a filling done. Dr. DK was so patient and understanding with her. He made the whole procedure seamless.
My kids actually like going to the dentist! ACD is so welcoming and friendly; we love all the staff and wonderful dentist!
Dr. DK is amazing. His staff is wonderful, too. He does so well with my special needs son. I wouldn't go anywhere else. 😊 …
Great service , my teeth are looking like new, super friendly staff, and overall a great experience, Highly recommend! Janneylee was super nice and helped me understand the process of what she was doing as well!
Great first experience with Dr. D.K. and his team! All the staff were very kind, professional, and informative throughout our visit. I would highly recommend this practise.
I’m so thankful for Alderwood Children’s Dentistry, we received the best care. The doctor was so kind, compassionate, and patient for my daughter's first dentist apt. I was blown away by the team's knowledge and passion for paediatric dentistry. 10 stars! You must take your kiddos here.
Super professional, we loved everything, and my baby was super friendly!
Dr. DK and his staff are absolutely amazing, and we put so much effort into making sure my niece was comfortable and relaxed for her four extractions. Needless to say, she gained Dr. DK’s trust, and he was able to wiggle all four out plus get sealants done. This was a jaw-dropping visit after she wouldn’t let her previous dentist come near her. Amazing work by Dr. DK and his wonderful staff!
The practice has a really cute homey feel with an underwater theme. I was really impressed with Dr. DK - he was very thorough in explaining everything and gentle with the filling appointment. Will def be coming back!
The new doctor is kind and explains very well. You speak Korean well.
My kids have been going here for years, we travel over 30 minutes to come here because it is such a amazing staff and always make my family and kids feel important. There is a new dentist there now Dr. DK he is so friendly and precise, he explains things so well to me and is so great with the kids. My kids love going there ! I have several options closer but I continue to come here for there high level of customer service.
My daughter started coming here almost 2 years ago when she was 7 years old. I've never had an issue either with the clinical side or the administration side. Everything is explained and seamless and my daughter absolutely LOVES Dr. Worton and his staff!
Everyone and everything about this place is great! Today they had a balloon artist making balloon animals! How cool is that!

I've been coming here for 3 years now. The hygienists are warm and welcoming. Dr. Clint has been nothing but great when communicating with me as a parent and when making the experience positive for my very young children. He's awarded as a Top Dentist by Seattle Met every single year. Special touches are a TV in the waiting room with a movie playing, play house and toys and books, a self-serve Keurig for the parents, TVs on the ceilings above the exam chairs, prizes for kids when they finish their appointment, and names written on a board to welcome their new patients and birthday kids. I have recommended this dentist to friends. Very happy with our experiences here so far.
Dr. DK Lim and staff members were friendly and thorough with my 3-year-old daughter’s teeth checkup. They took good care of her during the procedure. Dr. Lim is fluent in Korean, and this really helped my daughter feel comfortable in a chair.
Dr. DK is great with my kids. He is calming and does great work. The office staff is also kind and helpful.
A good dentist is very quick and easy.
We love Alderwood Children's Dentistry. Dr. DK is so thorough, sweet, and patient with my little kiddo. He really cares. The staff is accommodating and friendly. We highly recommend it!
Such a cute office and such kind staff. We took our daughter for her first checkup there. The waiting room is awesome for kids. The dentist was understanding, a clear communicator, and did so well with our daughter. We felt confident about the plan moving forward and the doctor's expertise. We left feeling all our questions were answered, and they even gave her a little stuffie! I am very thrilled to have found such a great dental care team!
I've been taking my 3 year old son here for the last year. The clinic is aquatic-themed, with images and toys of fish and other sea creatures. This makes it so kid-friendly and inviting. Dr. DK Lim and his staff are incredibly friendly and do a great job making the kids feel comfortable with the dental equipment and process. I would absolutely recommend this clinic to everyone.
I love Dr. DK and Cerina, as well as all the other hygienists. They are thorough, knowledgeable, and so good with our 2-year-old twins. The women who work up front are sweet and helpful. Highly recommend!
Dr. DK is very friendly and gentle with my three kids’ teeth. He talked them through their appointment and even asked questions about them personally, like school, sports, and activities. His staff is kind and professional, too!
My children are always well taken care of at this dentist's office. It was discovered that one of my kids had a cavity. Dr. DK offered to fix it then rather than coming back if we had time. I can't say enough great things about this dentistry!
My son always comes home saying he had a good experience.
Very friendly doctors and staff.
My son loved having a wide selection of videos to watch during his appointment. My husband and I appreciate that Dr. DK took time to address all of our questions.
laura S. We absolutely love Alderwood Children's Dentistry! I've been bringing my children here for 10 years now. The care and attention they give to every patient and the patient's unique needs is above and beyond. It always feels like a safe and fun appointment for the entire family. I fully trust them with the dental needs they are providing for my children. I am so happy with the care and advice we have received here. The one-on-one time Dr. DK takes to go over things with each parent and child is very comforting. You can see he truly cares about his patients and practise, and that is very comforting in a dental setting. We would never go anywhere else. ♡
My 2 teen age kids are patients of Dr. DK. Dr. DK and staff are amazing with anyone of any age and make them feel at ease. They are all so friendly and welcoming!
I was sad to hear Dr. Worton would be retiring, as he has always made my daughter’s exam a positive experience. Dr. DK has stepped into Dr. Worton’s huge shoes seamlessly! Our daughter needed a procedure beyond a regular cleaning, and Dr. DK explained everything along the way and was so encouraging and reassuring throughout. Dr. Worton continued to think about his patients and has chosen a worthy replacement!
Dr. DK and his team were amazing for my daughter’s first visit. He is very kind and caring. He also explained everything in a kid friendly manner. What really stood out was that everybody there the dentist, assistants, and receptionist listened to our family and answered all of our questions. They made it super easy and fun. My daughter is excited for her next visit! Kind of surprising, haha.
My 4 children are patients at this office. I personally witnessed how sincere and caring Dr. DK is with each of my kids. I was especially impressed with his quick and confident response to seeing my 5 year-old, who had a remnant of a tooth. (This remnant could not be taken out from a surgical procedure at UW Children’s Dentistry, and so the doctors there decided to leave it, hoping it would dissolve when a new tooth erupts. My 5 year old had to go under general anaesthesia to get the surgical procedure done at that clinic.) As a parent, I was very worried that he would need to undergo general anaesthesia again to remove the remnant tooth, but leaving it is not ideal. Dr. DK made an immediate decision to remove the remnant tooth with just laughing gas. He assured me it was worth a try, so I watched him coach my son through the procedure. My son went along without hesitation because of Dr.DK’s gentle and confident actions! I was blown away by his actions and overwhelmed with feelings of gratitude! He won my loyalty as a client. I will surely recommend him to my friends and family without hesitation and with much praise! It is difficult to find a professional you can trust like Dr. DK. He is honest and transparent, and he is so good with kids!
Dr. Lim was great. Very kind and professional. Both of my girls liked him. The front office is knowledgeable and very helpful.
Our children have been patients in this practice for at least 10 years. Every call, visit, procedure is professional and caring. We highly recommend Dr. Worton and his staff.
Dr. Dongkook Lim (or Dr DK) is an excellent dentist. He is gentle and friendly, has a great bedside manner. He is very responsive to after hours and weekend calls. When I called to ask about some issues my son was having I was surprised to learn the after hours number that I was given was not for an answering service, it was Dr. DK's own cell phone. Not only did I get to talk to him right away, but he called me the next day, which was a Saturday, to follow up and check on my son's symptoms. This kind of service is rare these days, and it is just an example of how what an excellent and caring dentist Dr DK is.
The most amazing dentist and staff! I'll never take my daughter anywhere else for her cleanings, check-ups, and dental needs. They're amazing with kids and their care is unmatched!
Dr Clint is amazing and so kind. Very happy with everything there for years. Highly recommend!
