Meet Dr. Chester


Dr. Chester was born and raised in Washington, D.C. His father had a home dental office, and some of his earliest memories were playing “spaceship” in the dental chairs! He attended both public and private schools and spent his summers on the Chesapeake Bay sailing with his Dad.

He later attended Coe College, San Francisco Art Institute, and Montgomery Junior College where he became a Dental Laboratory Technician. Dr. Chester owned and operated a dental crown and bridge laboratory in rural Hawaii, before deciding to go back to school and become a dentist. He graduated from the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, Maryland in 1992 at age 40 and had practiced in Washington DC and Hawaii before moving to Bellingham, WA in 1998.

Dr. Chester is a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the Mt. Baker Dental Society.  He enjoys photography, bronze sculpting, and writing software. He married his wife Margaret in 1981. Margaret has a master’s degree in public health education, has extensive experience as a grief and bereavement counselor with Hospice, is a certified Yoga instructor, and is an author of several books.

    Thank you Bob and Sarah for the great work on my two repairs yesterday. I appreciate the discussion of options, decision making, and repair happening all in the same appointment, and especially the way my teeth feel now! The natural look of the front tooth repair really surprised me, now I won't be concerned when the other one comes due for repair.


    Going to the dentist can be a daunting experience. However, from the moment you walk into the office, there is always a warm reception and caring atmosphere. Dr. Chester and his staff are truly professionals whose concern is for the best possible oral healthcare. Patients are given clear and concise evaluations that help create confidence in their care of each patient


    Can't say enough nice things about Dr Chester's office. From the warm greeting of Maggie to the excellent care that Michelle gives when cleaning my teeth they really do try to make it a relaxed friendly environment. This isn't easy for me, since I have a lot of apprehension about going to dentist and I'm always very pleased with Dr Chester evaluation and agree with his game plan of my continued care. I highly recommend!

    I had a dental emergency while traveling (which is no fun at all) and Dr. Chester was exceptionally accommodating. He saw me as soon as I could get to his office, did an immediate diagnosis, gave me a complete explanation, fixed the problem and had me on my way in no time at all. I have sensitive teeth and usually leave the dentist's office with a very sore mouth, especially when the numbing medicine wears off. I had no pain at all and the fixed tooth felt completely natural. Thank you, Dr. Chester! I'm seriously thinking of scheduling another trip around the time of my next check-up!
