What Our Patients Say About Our Bellingham Dentist | Robert Chester, DDS

Dr. Chester has been my dentist since 1998,and he was an answer to prayer. I had been living in Alaska and Seattle for years searching for a good dentist, then moved to Bellingham. It's been a wonderful to have such a fine dentist all these years.

Sister Judy T.

Good visit, friendly, efficient, professional dentistry.

Ron K.

The staff is competent, professional, friendly and eager to make my visit stress-free. I was given valuable information about how to maintain my oral health.

Clare

Thanks for your kindness and understanding of my puppy getting a hold of the bridge. I had a good appointment yesterday and am trying to brush my teeth correctly.

Lela S.

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!

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.

After a long lifetime of moving various places, and needing a dentist wherever I lived, I have found the "best of the best". Dr. Chester and his staff are professional, kind, friendly, and relaxed. The GOOD DOCTOR is a master at helping his patients relax and trust the processes necessary to create and keep strong healthy teeth. As we age, so do our teeth and he has this almost "uncanny" way of giving his patients such authentic kindness and support in order to get his work done, that we, as patients can truly experience his manner of working in an efficient, yet gentle way. For me, there has never been a dentist who is anything similar to him. It's all about his way of creating a safe, quiet, thorough, and professional environment. Kudos to him and to his entire staff!

Is there such a thing as dentist phobic? I have had bad experiences in dentist offices in the past. My experience in Dr. Chester's has been 100% positive. Everyone there has been careful, thorough, professional, and kind

I have been going to the office of Dr Chester for a while and I am continually greeted with smiles and a time to chat with them, I am impressed with genuine care for the patients. We are greeted with smiles and laughter at the end. I have been informed about all the possibilities about my care in a way that isn't so technical in understanding. I have also, been given a good talk about how I care for my teeth as well. Thank you so much team, Lets Go!

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. Todd

How is it possible to head to the dentist for a good dose of belly laughter?! Thanks to Michelle, Margaret, Dr C and the team this is what happens every time. Wonderful welcome, top notch dental treatment (from a dentist who loves his patients and is always bringing the best new knowledge to them), and a place that is rare these days - a place that really cares. THANK YOU.

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!

I took my mother to Dr. Chester to and she ended up having to get two teeth pulled. My moms had teeth pulled back home before In Alaska , it was very painful and the dentist was rough. Mom said tho dentist was the best she has been to in all her years.  And she is 75 years old.  So that says a lot right there.  The front desk lady was so very kind and helpful and I hope to meet her next time for i have spoken to her a few times only through phone. She helped us get there when we were a little lost.   I wish ALL people were so kind and Welcoming and gentle ! This  place and these people are more than excellent at All they  do !

I met these lovely people one day when I was in sudden extreme pain and I had called 14 other dentists to find someone who would get me in. I have been impressed from the minute I went through the door. Everyone has been kind and attentive. All options discussed and no pressure. When I needed to consider I was given space. When I needed to ask questions Dr Chester answered them all. Respect given for my concerns- money being the biggest. He never rushed me. Talked me through what was happening. Painless procedure. And that wasn't the end of the story. The asked me to call and let them know how I was doing and when I hadn't call the ( I didn't believe they were serious, I guess) they called up on me. They gave me their home number and cell if I had any problem.  They meant it. They know how to make you feel cared for. And the receptionist is his wife?    What keeps me from them being my new dentist? The aren't on my insurance or I definitely would.

Unfortunately, I was traveling when I had a dental emergency. After the panic, I called Dr. Chester' office. He was exceptionally accommodating. He saw me as soon as I could get to his office, did an immediate diagnosis, gave me a complete explanation (that was helpful!), fixed the problem and had me on my way. It was all much quicker than I has expected - it is a very efficient office! 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!

I'm a big baby when it comes to dentistry but Dr. Chester and his staff helped me remain calm. By far, the Best dentist I've ever been to. His staff is AMAZING. They treated me like a person and genuinely cared about me and the pain I was in. Highly recommend to anyone searching for a dentist. Caring, kind people. There wasn't enough stars to give them!

Lisa Baisden

A dental spa of sorts! The office is beautiful & comfortable, the staff are knowledgeable & caring. Dr. Chester took his time explaining my x-rays, dental procedures & answered all my questions without feeling rushed.Michelle gave an amazing cleaning (my teeth still feel clean 3 days later) & took her time explaining the best brushing practice for me. I left feeling like I was leaving the spa.

Bri Maier

It has been my privilege to assist over sixty fine dentists all over the west coast. I choose Dr. Chester as my own dentist, because he has expertise available nowhere else. He shares it generously, even with new patients. Find out what he can offer you and your family.
