Meet Dr. Azar Dehkordi
Making a Difference in Patients’ Lives
I am passionate about being a dentist. Every day I have the opportunity to make a significant, lasting difference in each patient’s health and well-being. Having a healthy mouth is important, not only for the simple pleasure of eating, but for speaking clearly and feeling confident about one’s appearance.
I’ve treated many patients who used to experience stress and anxiety when they thought about seeing the dentist. After being cared for in our office with respect, patience, and gentleness, they come back with a big smile. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to help people overcome their fears and take control of their oral health.
I have been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years and have met many people from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Each person has taught me so much, and that has enriched my life. I am thankful for our conversations and the long-term relationships we’ve developed. I’m particularly happy to serve multiple generations of the same family, so I’m included in their lives. The children and young adults bring a lot of energy to our office.

I have been a Seattle-area resident for more than 30 years and treasure the privilege of life in the Pacific Northwest. I am the proud mother of two wonderful children whom I adore.
In my free time, I really enjoy being active, and spending time with family and friends. I like hiking, biking, traveling, reading, and practicing yoga. At home, I enjoy cooking and gardening, and love listening to music. Of course, during football season, I try not to miss watching the Huskies and the Seahawks games!
