Located just outside of Seattle in Kirkland, Washington, the Dental Clinic at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) offers quality dental care to the general public. The clinic is staffed by students, licensed dentists and  hygienists, and certified dental assistants serving your oral health care needs.

Getting to the Dental Clinic


Please be advised that new  patient exams are by appointment and usually take two to three visits and can take up to three hours. Initial cleaning appointments may take one to four visits and will last three hours. Hygiene restorative appointments can be three hours.

Our restorative clinic  (crowns, bridges, and removable partial dentures only), is open to our patients of record. 

Because of the COVID19 pandemic we have made changes in our processes. You must  bring your insurance card or current Apple Health card with you; photo ID, email, and contact phone number.

Please call (425) 739-8130 and select option #1 if you want to become a new patient in the hygiene clinic.

Dental Clinic Policies

Our goal is to provide student dental education and for our patients to receive quality dental care. To ensure efficiency, we have created policies to enhance and protect the dental clinic:

  • Payment is required at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, and VISA, MasterCard or American Express for your payment convenience. We do not accept Discover Card.
  • A strict cancellation policy is adhered to due to students clinical requirements. We require notice of at least 24 hours before your dental appointment to re-schedule it.
  • A parent or a guardian must accompany all patients under the age of 18 and stay on site during the treatment.
  • As a courtesy, we submit insurance claims on your behalf. But, you are ultimately responsible for any fees incurred. You must bring in all needed information and to advise us when that information has changed.
