family dentistry 

Dr’s Stephen Young , Nathan and Sara Bauer all do what they can to make things as painless as possible. As a patient and an employee of Edmonds Dental Prosthetics Inc., I’ve experienced first hand the quality of their work for close to 17 years.

Always a pleasure.

Thanks 417 Smiles!

Great place they are very friendly and take good care of you.

From founder Dr. Stephen Young to both Drs. Bauer and the many long-time team members, this practice has been staffed with top echelon professionals at all levels, and has never wavered in their outstanding dedication to patients and their well-being. Many of these people are like family to me and my own family after 30+ years of care. You will not be disappointed to walk in their door.

I rarely write reviews for anything unless I am compelled by either really poor or really exceptional service, product or place. In this case I am happy to give 417 Smiles and Dr Bauer’s team 5 stars and more for their excellent dental services. First of all they really do know who you are and are careful to explain things to you in a way you can understand. No surprises. Terry has been our family dental hygienist for about 20 years (bless her heart!) and is like family. I can’t say enough about the care they give you. If you are a bit frightened to see a dentist, don’t be, just give them a call and I promise you will be happy you did!

What a great group of people. Everyone in the office is extremely professional. The Bauers are both wonderful dentists. Very reasonable and non-judgmental. Very gentle in personality and with my teeth and gums.

Gone is the fear and loathing of a dental visit! The entire staff of 417 Smiles is upbeat, friendly and go the extra mile to make you comfortable — from the office staff to hygenists to the dentists. Dr. Nathan Bauer and his hygenists respect your time, answer all your questions and deliver reliable, lasting dental solutions.
