The artistic and technical challenges of dentistry are only part of what drives Dr. Fisher's passion for dentistry. At James Center Dental Excellence, Dr. Fisher truly enjoys the family atmosphere that has been created with our great patients. Dr. Fisher's ultimate goal is to provide outstanding, gentle and efficient dental care to help patients reach optimal health and the smile they deserve.
Dr. Fisher notes one of the ironies of good dental care: the better care he takes of his patients, the less he sees of them. "We take great care of our patients. As they get healthier they may only need regular checkups. That makes them very happy. My team and I get a thrill watching people's face light up when they see their new smile."
Dr. Fisher has been practicing Dentistry for over 30 years and opened James Center Dental Excellence nearly ten years ago. Born and raised in the Seattle area,
