What Sets Us Apart

The O’Brien Dentistry Philosophy

At O’Brien Dentistry, our philosophy is simple: to increase the quality of peoples’ lives by improving their oral health through high quality service and gentle care.

Dr. Carol O’Brien and our team are patient-focused in everything we do: your comfort, your needs, and your concerns are all our highest priority. We will work to form a partnership with you, working together to help you attain exceptional oral health and a beautiful smile, using individual treatment plans.

Starting with your first visit, we’ll spend time talking about your care goals and lifestyle. We must understand your needs and situation so we can find the solutions that are appropriate for you. Instead of dictating particular treatments, we’ll present you with options for rectifying issues, and help you make educated decisions about your care: this is your smile, after all!

Commitment to Your Comfort

We understand that not everyone likes visiting the dentist office. In fact, some people experience dental anxiety and avoid seeing the dentist for years as a result. If this is you, we promise not to judge. Instead, we’d like to help you work through those fears.

Ours is a positive, warm, and safe office. Here, our team members are skilled and compassionate caregivers. If you have concerns, we’ll actively listen to you and encourage you to tell us about your worries, so we can identify where we can help. All care will proceed at a pace you’re comfortable with, and we’ll always use minimally-invasive treatments.

We offer sedation dentistry, including conscious sedation and pre-visit medications, when needed. We also provide warm blankets, comfortable pillows, TVs, and headphones to all our patients.

It’s important you know we’re here to help you. If there’s ever anything we can do to make your visit more enjoyable and comfortable, please do not hesitate to ask. It would be our honor to ensure you’re smiling when your visit is finished, and that you look forward to coming back to see us.

Complimentary Consultations

O’Brien Dentistry offers complimentary dental consultations at our University Place, WA office, serving the surrounding community, including patients from University Place and Tacoma. We invite you to schedule a consultation for yourself or a loved one, today. Come in, meet Dr. O’Brien and our team, and talk about your dental care goals.

Everyone on our team looks forward to becoming a trusted partner in your oral healthcare, and helping you develop a healthy, wonderful smile!
