What Our Patients Say…

“I have been going to Dr. Brian McKay for about 15 years, and ever since my first visit I have been a devoted fan! Dr. McKay and his team are professional, efficient, and highly-skilled, and have done an outstanding job at keeping my teeth looking (and feeling) great. I have referred several colleagues and friends to Dr. McKay and his team and will continue to do so. Bonus: they send you text reminders for your next appointment, so you never forget.”

Jared N.

“Never thought I’d say this but I love my dentist and his entire staff! Professional, well-educated, compassionate people, state-of-the-art equipment, AND a rare understanding that the mouth is part of a larger whole. Which is why they conduct life-saving screenings. Chris, the hygienist, identified and cured a low-grade virus that has been plaguing me for years!”

Judith W.

“Dr. McKay and his office staff are amazing. I’m a high fear patient and Dr. McKay took his time to explain everything to me. They were kind, and compassionate, and treated me with respect. I felt very comfortable and trusted them. He uses the latest technology in the industry, and I felt very well taken care of. I can’t recommend him enough. If I could give them more stars, I would. You won’t regret putting your trust and dental health in Dr. McKay’s hands.”

Sandra B.

“Dr. McKay and his team have taken care of me for over 15 years. I currently make the trek from Olympia to Seattle because having a good dentist is worth the drive (I lived in Hawaii for a few years and would fly in for an appointment). I recommend Advanced Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry to anyone who wants current technology and methods, practical information, a comfortable environment, and a lovely, healthy smile. I don’t leave the office feeling like my face has been hit by a truck. Everyone there is gentle and kind. I tell people that I actually like going to the dentist – I’m not even joking, and no, I was not paid to say that :)”

Elizabeth T.

“Dr McKay is competent, kind, and attentive. He went to great lengths to make sure I was cared for, that all my needs were met, and all my questions were answered. His assistants, Mari and Chelsea, were especially and absolutely wonderful. I would recommend Dr McKay to anyone.”


“Warm and friendly staff who really listen to my needs and helped me understand what I needed done. Fantastic office with all the newest technology!”

Garrison D.

“I truly enjoy going to this dental group. Shannon is my hygienist, and she is A+. The office pays for parking and is conveniently located next to Seattle University. I highly recommend using Dr.Brian McKay’s dental team.”


“Highly recommend!!!! Everyone at Dr. McKay’s office is great and very helpful. They’ll take great care of you. They helped me smile again. I cannot thank them enough.”

Shane B.

“I have to say I’m very pleased with Dr. Brian T. McKay and Staff from the moment you walk in the door a very friendly staff and very knowledgeable. Dr. McKay is excellent with his patients and I’m so excited for the end results. I’m currently wearing braces and my teeth are after a very short time becoming straight again. I will eventually have Veneers too so very excited I’m currently wearing the temps and doing great so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Brian McKay.”

Kat A.

“I have been going to Advanced Cosmetics and Laser Dentistry for over a decade. Dr. McKay and his staff have consistently provided excellent dental and patient care! I highly recommended ACLD to anyone who is looking for the best dental care in the Seattle area!”

Jeanie D. S.

“I absolutely loved my experience here. Not being a huge fan of going to the dentist, the team was warm, welcoming, and make you feel completely at ease. Literally, the best experience I have ever had. The entire staff is personable and really does take their time in not only educating you about the process but actually sitting and getting to know you as well as you are in the office. So happy I have found this team.”
