I had the best experience with Dr.Zimmer and a good cleaning, too. You step into any area of the office and it is so incredibly beautiful you think you are at a spa, not dentist.

It is pretty obvious Dr.Zimmer cares about aesthetics and technology because everything was really fancy - something I appreciate when I'm getting my teeth nice and shiny. I want the best for my teeth and I am sure I can get it here!

Mostly I love the people that work here. They really seem to pay attention to your needs, and I didn't even feel a thing when getting my numbing shot. Now my teeth look the best they possibly can, after being seriously jacked up by another dentist. Thank you Dr.Z!

Pros: nice, state-of-the-art equipment, sweet staff

Cons: parking-but they pay for your parking!

I have never had a more rushed or unprofessional visit to the dentist. The ambiance is certainly interesting and posh, but the service and skill level leave much to be desired. Dr. Zimmer and his assistant were more busy speaking on their headsets and attending to scheduling issues than they were paying attention to filling my cavity. Dr. Zimmer actually referred to himself as an air traffic controller. I don't know about you, but I would prefer that my practitioner pay attention to the drill in my mouth as opposed to his bottle neck of appointments. In addition, I believe that I was "sold" on a filling that I did not need. Furthermore, since my filling I have had tooth pain. I would absolutely not recommend this dentist and I only wish that I would have done more research before seeing a dentist for convenience sake.

When things don't go right, Dr. Joseph Zimmer will not help you. In the beginning, everyone in the office was nice and all. When I first went there, Dr. Zimmer was very helpful with answering my questions and addressing my needs. But when things did not go right, Dr. Joseph Zimmer does not take responsibility for his actions. He did not return my phone calIs. I would not go back there anymore

I went to Dr Joseph Zimmer's clinic for simple filling/cavity but i got nasty infection that lasted for several weeks. He is too busy trying to get 2-3 patients in one hour, so he usually spends 15-20 min on one patient and gets constantly paged because other patients are ready. If i did not get nasty gum infection i would have ignored the fact that his hygienist did my filling.... Is not there any medical or government agency that checks these kind of dental clinics to make sure they follow simple sanitation rules and requirements? i think syringe needle should be changed if it has already been used and/or it should be covered and kept in sanitized/clean environment before using on patient.

I went to Dr. Zimmer on a recommendation from a friend of mine. I hate dentists, but I believed and trusted my friends recommendation. I had two crowns and a filling done at one time since I travel extensively and making and keeping appointments is difficult.

My experience with Dr Z was by far the best experience in a dentist chair I have ever had. Absolutely no pain, and I didn't need or want all the boutique drugs to relax that are so popular. The office staff was efficient and caring putting my needs and comfort above all else. I actually fell asleep I was so relaxed. The office is modern with all the latest technologies. The drilling for all three teeth was less than 20 minutes.

As for the cat, it stays in the reception office, it is clean, friendly, and really is great for lifting the apprehension of visiting a dentist. I cannot understand how anyone would complain about the experience.

What can I say, this was the best dental experience in my life and I would recommend Dr Z to anyone, especially those who hate dentists.

Stay away from this dentist! Dr. Zimmer is an unconscionable vitriolic man with very few redeeming qualities. My current dentist suggests that I sue him for malpractice. I am $4000.00 dollars into one tooth that he messed up so badly (read: 2 root canals and a very ugly cracked crown) that I'm going to have to have it pulled. The cat in the office is a health violation and a menace.The employees (all young blonds!) are a bunch of gossipy tarts. Moreover, he runs a 6 chair business alone! Have you ever had to wait in the chair till the novicaine wore off and then they begin work? I have....AND, when you are all done they want payment up front. This is one you should pass on. It's too late for me. Save yourselves.

New in town, I tried Dr. Zimmer. His office setup is a little strange. Instead of a private waiting room, there is a window that opens onto the public corridor near the elevator and the public restrooms. There one must stand in the hall and discuss dental and financial details with his staff, while anonymous passers-by use the corridor or head for the restroom. I felt like I should be whispering. The actual visit went well, but I don't think I will return.

Dr. Zimmer is always kind and gentle. He and his staff are careful to not sound like scolding nannies when they talk about flossing. I think they actually have figured out that adults know how to floss and how often they're supposed to be doing it. They don't act like the patients are naughty children.
I used to have a great fear of dental work but due to Dr. Zimmer's pleasantness, patience, and advice, I am completely over it. I wouldn't say I look forward to going in (who *likes having her teeth cleaned?) but I don't *mind it. I like the way he explains different possible courses -- more conservative "wait and see" ones vs. "let's take care of it now" ones, and is actually interested in doing the one that the patient feels more comfortable with. He also understands that people might want to time their procedures in order to capitalize on insurance, and brings up things like this in a casual way that doesn't make people feel uncomfortable.
I like the way the simple "cleaning" patients get to go upstairs where they don't have to hear the "eee-eeeeeee" sound of someone being drilled in the next room. (The eee-eeeee being the noise the drill makes, not the sound of someone screaming. LOL.)

I had someone tell me that this guy totally screwed up his tooth. After spending thousands of dollars on the tooth, they still ended up having to extract it. What a waste of money.

Poor results. The office and staff are nice. Great presentation up front. However, the results are poor. I would not go back here.

Pros: Sounds great in the beginning

Cons: Poor results later

.

I first saw Dr. Zimmer after quite a few years of neglecting my teeth (due to no dental insurance). Dr. Zimmer was both encouraging and empathetic, not making me feel guilty over my poor dental habits (up to that point), and even taking extra time on that first visit to be sure my teeth were fully cared for. His office is fully in tune with the technology of the times (think digital x-rays) and the staff is always kind and helpful. I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr Zimmer.

Dr. Zimmer is the best dentist in Seattle. I have always been slightly afraid of going to the dentist for no particular reason since I dont have any cavities. With all their new equipment and gentle staff it makes visitng the dentist a pleasure and not a pain. I'm not scared anymore!

Pros: Parking, Scheduling, Customer Service

Cons: None

I am 33, typically fearful beyond belief by going to the Dentist and due to a recent tooth issue, I took the advice of a friend who recommended going to Etheridge Family Dentistry in Madison Park. I was immediately at ease upon meeting their wonderful staff in their gorgeous office. I have been in twice now and have been tipped over by their genuine kindness, sensitivity and thoughtfulness in an evening call to see how I was doing after both appointments. My teeth are so much nicer looking!....I have had comments on my smile since going!
I have and will continue to recommend this Dentist and team to my friends and family, as my friend did for me.

Pros: Wonderful Dentist, thoughtful staff, beautiful office

Let me start by saying that aesthetically, this office is beautiful! If you are looking for no more than a a great looking office, this is the place to be. Dr. Zimmer has clearly put much into not only a great looking office (you must check out the back office) but a spectacular roof top garden complete with bamboo and an array of birds and flowers. This high tech office complete with digital EVERYTHING clearly has combined efficiency with technology. Initially, I had scheduled an appointment because of a toothache and not only was I a new patient, but they scheduled extra time for me to receive treatment that same day! Dr. Zimmer's employees were all so accomodating to my situation, I was extremely grateful. He is an intelligent, highly knowledgable, and a compassionate dentist with a great sense of humor!
