Vashon Dental Clinic
Our Office

The Vashon Dental building has a unique look as it was designed to be energy efficient. It utilizes passive solar heating through a large skylight. This skylight also allows ample natural light into the building and gives a view of passing clouds and waving trees in the sky above.

Dental Clinic Teeth
The Environment

This passive heating is tempered with cooling from the surrounding soil as the building is submerged into the ground on one side.

Vashon Island Dentist
Patient's View

Your view during a dental visit will be of warm wood beams and natural sunlight. This adds the relaxing environment our staff provides.

Dental health will substantially improve the quality of your life

“Dr. Leif Rasmussen is a great dentist that is very knowledgable, gentle, realistic, and amazing at cosmetic veeners.”

“Great in every way. Dr. Rasmussen has been my dentist during his entire time in practice.”

“Dr. Rasmussen has been caring for my wife and children for a couple years now, but with a minor dental emergency it was my turn to give him a try. The office staff are helpful and efficient, and found a short-notice time slot for me. The Doctor and his assistants were just as good, and had my problems fixed promptly. I don't think I've seen a better family dentist!”

“Level of Trust I had with Dr. Rasmussen was high. He helped both myself and my daughter understand our conditions clearly and in detail, he really listened and answered all of our questions, and scheduled appointments for us around OUR schedule rather than their own. It was truly a wonderful experience from what we are used to.”

“We felt special from the moment we walked in. We are a cash paying customer so we don't always get the best service, however here was a completely positive experience which left me looking forward to my next visit.”
