Dr. Kari Woo is a native of Bellevue, WA and completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Washington. She then earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the University of Pacific School of Dentistry down in San Francisco, CA in 2008. She stayed down in the Bay Area practicing dentistry for a couple years following dental school before returning to her hometown here in the beautiful pacific northwest.
Dr. Woo consistently attends continuing education courses in order to stay current with the many advancements in techniques and technology. It is her goal to stay at the leading-edge of dentistry for the benefit of her patients. In addition, she reads many dental journals and participates in multiple study clubs with her mentors and colleagues. Dr. Woo is ACLS certified and is also a professional member of the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, Seattle King County Dental Society, and the Kois Center for Advanced Dental Education.
Dr. Woo’s personal interests include traveling, sporting events, trying new restaurants, and soaking in a stunning view. She also loves being out on the water, which we are so fortunate to have such incredible access to here in the greater Seattle area! When not working she spends as much time as possible with her family and friends. Dr. Woo is very close to her entire family, most of whom live nearby and get to see each other often.
On Being a Dentist
“I’m lucky to be in a profession in which I get to combine so many of my passions. I am able to use my skills to help improve the smiles and health of so many people. At the same time, I’m getting to know them personally as they become part of the family here at W Dentistry! Knowing I'm a part of helping others feel great about their health and their smile can be immensely rewarding. I love how dentistry has the potential to drastically improve the way people feel about themselves. Many people don’t expect this, and it is gratifying to see the positive changes that the care I provide can make for an individual. It is truly a pleasure to impove people’s lives, one smile at a time.”
