    Jerald D. Bates, DDS, PLLC

    Dr. Bates opened his practice in Woodinville with the vision of treating the whole family's dental needs. After graduating from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, he served as a dentist in the Navy for two years. He returned to Woodinville with his wife, Carol, and knew this was the community where they wanted to raise their family.

    Dr. Bates has become a symbol of quality dentistry in the Woodinville community having served family dental needs for many years. He is listed as Top-Rated Dentist in Puget Sound Consumer's Checkbook in 2008, 2012 and 2015. He is one of America's Best Dentist and Top Dentist in Woodinville with International Association of Dentists.

    Dentistry continues to change with the new advancements in technology, and Dr. Bates is tenacious about seeking out the best available products and techniques for his patients. He pursues continuing education, participating in local study clubs with specialists in implants, periodontics, with other leading dentists in our community. He is member of Spears Faculty Club which is limited to 1,000 dentists worldwide, an active member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the Seattle King County Dental Society.

    If you have met Dr. Bates, you know he is a dentist who cares about the whole person. This concern for his patients carries through to his dental team, his family, his coaching, and everywhere he comes in contact with people. Perhaps this is the reason his dental team continues to vote Jerry "Best Boss!"

    Dr. Bates enjoys family, especially his 12 grandchildren. He is an avid sports fan and spends much of his free time watching his grandchildren's games, as well as the Seahawks and the Mariners.

    Arlene, Office Coordinator

    I am a Washington native raised in Eastern Washington until 1970 when I moved to Seattle for school. At the end of 1972, I started working for Dr. Bates as a clinical assistant, changing positions in 1975 to the front office. Later I moved out of the area for five years, then returned in 1981.

    All of us at Dr. Bates' dental team have been together for decades because of Dr. Bates' quality of dentistry and caring for patients and staff, which makes our office a professional, familiar and enjoyable place to be.

    My husband and I have lived in Bothell for over 33 years and have one son who lives in the area. I enjoy being outside, gardening, relaxing and restoring small items, but most of all the beauty of Washington State.

    I am a native to the area and the proud mother of my daughter Raquel. I look forward to meeting you.

  • Sue, Account Manager in Woodinville, WA

    Sue, Account Manager

    I have been working for Dr. Bates (aka Dad) on and off since I was 10 years old. Happily, I no longer sterilize instruments, file, paint walls, or clean toilets and am pleased to be working with Arlene in the front office. I grew up in Woodinville and then moved to Pullman to attend Washington State University where I played on the women's soccer team and earned a degree in Communications. I then began a career, married my wonderful husband, Jeff, and started a family. We moved out-of-state for several years.

    On returning to Woodinville, I was happy to rejoin the team at Dr. Bates as Account Manager. I love being a mom to my four children, encouraging them in all their endeavors, and I still enjoy playing soccer.

    I am happy to be here, serving the community alongside my Dad, he's a good man.

  • Kristen, Dental Hygienist in Woodinville, WA

    Kristen, Dental Hygienist

    I am a Southern California native. In 2005 I relocated to the great Northwest and fell in love with this beautiful place. I currently live in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle and enjoy the excitement of the busy city energy.

    I received my Degree in Dental Hygiene from Seattle Central College. I could not have asked for a better educational experience. I received exceptional experiences in diversity, special needs care, periodontology, community health, pain & anxiety control, and much more from the outstanding staff at SCC, whom I am forever grateful for.

    As I pursued my passion of Dental Hygiene, alongside me was my son Jayden. He is a talented artist & musician who recently started his first year of middle school.

    I found Dr. Bates & staff in the summer of 2015. It was easy to see that we were a good fit for one another. I truly enjoy the warm family feeling around our office and look forward to my days here.

    My mission is to assist every patient in achieving optimum oral health! To achieve the best care for my patients, I strive to stay current on the latest research & products.
