I have been a patient here for over 40 years and have always been treated friendly, courteously, & professionally. I can't imagine going anywhere else!

Dr. Ware and staff are just the best! My mother, myself and my kids have all been patients for almost 20 years :)

My hygienist Marissa was friendly, professional, & thorough. She talked to me about specific issues with my gums, and instructed me on how to use a water pick, which she recommended that I use.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ware for decades. Several times, after moving (out of Seattle), I saw different dentists that were closer to home. They ALWAYS ask, “Who's been doing your dental work. It's the best I've ever seen.” I prefer to commute to see Dr. Ware than be treated by any other dentist. Dr. Ware is a consummate professional. I have absolute trust in him and his knowledge and skills. He is always prompt, kind, personable, painless, concerned, and interested in his patients' good health, and is up to date on the latest treatments and procedures. He has provided information including non-dental issues, increasing our good health. His skills are remarkable, superb! He is exquisitely skilled, does the highest quality work, is unsurpassed, unmatched, superior. Always exceeds my expectations. Perhaps the best healthcare professional I have ever had, and absolutely the best dentist. In the world!

Thank you Dr. Ware, for taking care of our teeth, and being an important/positive part of our “good health care”. YOU set the example of what a healthcare professional can strive to become. Dr. Ware also maintains a warm and friendly, professional office atmosphere.

I am lucky to have a great hygienist and good teeth, and great advice on maintaining that from Dr. Mark Wilson and his hygienist, Carolynn. The gentle cajoling got me to SoniCare, and checkups have been a snap ever since. The IT improvements guarantee I won't miss a maintenance check, and parking is free, and appointments are always on time and finish on time. I view the service quality as something my own family practice should emulate!

Dr. Thomas Ware is known as “Painless Tom” for a reason. My daughter and I have been going to Dr. Ware for our dental care for 35 years! Now her husband sees him too. Dr. Ware and his great staff have always been highly effective in diagnosing and treating any dental needs we have had. Dr. Ware is especially sensitive to his patients' varying pain thresholds and individualizes their treatment accordingly. His caring approach greatly reduces or eliminates all potential pain. Prior to moving to Seattle in 1977, I had been to many dentists before meeting Dr. Ware. By FAR, he is the best dentist ever!

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Ware and his staff. Over the years a number of issues involving my teeth have come up. Dr. Ware solves the problem. He is a perfectionist when it comes to his dentistry. I like that. When required, Dr. Ware has made excellent referrals for me to engage a specialist (dental implants/root canal). I am spoiled and hope he never retires.

I have been Dr. Ware's patient for nearly 30 years and through the many exams and repairs I have been treated with exceptional professionalism and exceptional skill. Very recently a broken front tooth resulted in a call at home and an emergency appointment, which made me smile again. I have total trust in this dental practice.

Great Dental Care

If you want a professional top-of-the-line dental team, from dentists, dental assistants, and office administration, you can't beat University Dental Associates. I've been going for more than ten years and am extremely pleased with the whole team and especially with the dental work Dr. Wilson provides for me.

Old Hand

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Wilson since he took over from Dr. Starks many years ago. I have never had anything but the highest quality care from his office. Besides his great skill when I have an issue, he continues to educate me on a pro-active regime regarding continued oral health. Regular visits for routine cleaning by his excellent staff provide the basis for this approach.

Best Dentist and Staff!

Dr. Ware is the best dentist I have ever had. I almost don't want to write a review because I don't want to share him with any more patients! He is so calming, encouraging... I could go on and on. Further, his staff of hygienists are the greatest. I always have such fun conversations with each of them to the extent that I even look forward to catching up with them again at my next visit. My entire family goes to Dr. Ware, even those of us who have to travel a little farther to see him. So worth it!

A Great Dentist's Office

This office is convenient, centrally located in the U District with parking right on site. The offices are very clean and up to date. The staff is very professional and friendly and performed my cleaning using the latest technology. I am very happy to have found a dentist on this side of the lake (my past dentist was in Bellevue).

Fresh Start

After having spent years going to the dentist when I was home on holidays, I finally decided to find my own nearby. Having had bad experiences with my previous dentist, I did my research before calling University Dental Associates. I couldn't be happier with the quality of services they provide and for their enthusiasm to help me understand what goes on in people's mouth, including my own. They truly care about their patients and always send me home with some great tips and goodie bags!

Friendly, Gentle, and Professional

Dr. Wilson and his staff have always been friendly and professional, and he is very gentle when performing restorative work (a crown, in my case). They clearly explain what they are going to do, and take care to make sure you are comfortable during procedures.

40 Years with This Dental Clinic

I have been a patient of the late Dr. Starks and currently Dr. Wilson, and successive dental hygienists for 40 years. I have always been treated very professionally and kindly. I am glad my wife and I can always rely on Dr. Wilson and his hygienists for our dental care.

Dr. Ware Is the World's Best Dentist

Dr. Ware has provided excellent and thoughtful care to three generations of my family for 30 years. The office always works efficiently. Dr. Ware has a kind manner and actually listens to your questions and responds appropriately. He took extra time to deal with my three-year-old son and 80-year-old mom both on an emergency basis. He is a doctor you can count on!
