Meet Dr. Oleg Shvartsur
"Most dentists choose this profession to help others and relieve discomfort. I chose dentistry to also help people, but to do it in a manner that would make them feel comfortable. I know that we can change the way our patients experience their dental visit. Our office is built around our patients’ comfort. Come see for yourself and experience the difference.”
— Dr. Oleg
Dr. Oleg attended the Bellevue School District, and graduated from Bellevue High School. He attended the University of Washington, and earned his Bachelor of Science in biology, and finally the University of Washington School of Dentistry, where he led his colleagues as class president all four years.
Dr. Oleg is a true King County native who is fluent in Russian and enjoys practicing his Spanish. Even before he attended dental school, Dr. Oleg helped start and subsequently manage a free dental clinic in Northgate, WA, that provided the uninsured and low-income residents of King County with a safety net for their dental needs.
By attending three continuing-education groups a month, Dr. Oleg makes it his obligation to be able to provide the latest research that could benefit his patients — not only in dentistry, but also in overall health and well-being. He passes on his knowledge and dedication to learning by teaching as an affiliate faculty member in the Oral Medicine Department at the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
Dr. Oleg has gone above and beyond the minimum requirements of continuing education for a dentist, with hundreds of hours in advanced training in cosmetic dentistry, root canal therapy, periodontal therapy, dental implants, TMJ disorders, orthodontics (Invisalign®), sleep apnea, and pediatric dentistry.
