The Kaiser Permanente Dental Difference

For more than 40 years, Kaiser Permanente Northwest has been helping our members thrive with healthy smiles and dental care that connects seamlessly to their health plans. Prevention is at the core of our philosophy, and we want to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile. We combine dental, medical, pharmacy, and insurance services to help make health care simpler and more convenient.

Keeping you safe

The health and safety of our members is always our top priority. In response to COVID-19, we have taken precautions to ensure our dental offices are operating safely and efficiently. This includes installing new air filtration systems, installing hospital-grade air purifiers, increasing sanitization of exam rooms, and limiting certain procedures that are considered higher risk.

The current visitor policy for Kaiser Permanente dental offices is as follows:

  • Adult patients: No visitors allowed due to aerosol-generating procedures. (Exceptions: A patient with a disability may have one personal assistant in addition to a family member if essential for the patient’s physical or emotional well-being and care. Interpreters, including ASL, are also allowed.)
  • Minor patients: One accompanying parent or family member allowed; two if the minor is under 12 months.
