“I am Eric R Stephan, DMD, (now retired) and was a dentist in Gig Harbor for 30 years. My wife and I have lived on Raft Island since 1981. Gig Harbor is fortunate in having some outstanding dentists. I personally see Dr. Melissa Spaulding in “The Woods” office complex and endorse her practice completely. Excellent skill level, honest, caring, and great staff.”

- Eric Stephan

“I have been coming to Dr Jill for dental care since she first arrived in Gig Harbor in 2000. I have moved from Gig Harbor to Olympia and Seattle, but I have always made the trips back to Jill for every cleaning and repair. Over the last three years she has worked with me as I suffered through two years of braces and was rewarded with her magic recreation of six front teeth into a pretty smile that I didn’t think was possible. Jill is calm, kind, professional and talented and her team is incredible! Every one of them does their job so well and are always so helpful. Wendie gets a shout out for being Jill’s best extra hands and sidekick. Kristi is the best hygienist ever. Am I gushing? You bet. When was the last time you felt this good about your dentist?”
