Our patients say great things about us...

  • "I am one of the people that have bad memories from my childhood about the dentist. Everyone at Stanwood Dental is very considerate of that and they make sure you are comfortable before doing anything.

    The dental hygienists and Dr. Shawn provide excellent care and advice. They never recommend any procedures that aren't necessary."
    Kim B.
  • "Always the best dental care!"
    Karen B.
  • "I could not have had a better experience. Everyone is so kind and so competent. I would recommend Stanwood Dental Care for all your dental needs!"
    Joel M.
  • "I love these guys! I’ve had Dr. Shawn help me with botched fillings from previous dentists, fix a chipped front tooth, and do some cosmetic work to one of my canines. He does great work! I love the receptionists, they are always friendly and offer up periodic gifts to clients (I won a drawing for a Easter basket one Spring which I thought was pretty neat). The hygienists are super caring and easy to chat with as well. Nothing but great experiences over the last few years."
    Kacie W.
  • "Awesome team."
    Steve H.
  • "Great employees/professionals."
    Julia P.
  • "I highly recommend Stanwood Dental Care. I've been a patient for over five years. I've had a bridge implant and several crowns. They treat you with respect, listen to your needs and take the time to listen."
    Melinda C.
  • "Great cleaning and check up yesterday. I felt safe and I'm glad I kept my appointment during Covid-19."
    Paula K.
  • "The appointment was on August 20th and I was admitted for a cleaning on time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. All questions were answered and another appointment was made before I left the building. Another great experience for another dental cleaning."
    Roberta D.
  • "EXCELLENT dental office. Very welcoming group of people. They are very thoughtful and thorough. Everything is explained so the patient understands and is comfortable. I highly recommend them."
    Steve C.
  • "Been coming here for years. I used to hate going to the dentist office. You won't feel that here. You will get five star treatment all the way. The staff is amazing and works wiht your schedule. The bi-annual cleaning is a must! I recommend Sara, Kelsey, and Annie, I have had them and they are the best. I never feel any pain and they know how sensitive my teeth are. They take notes, if you are not satisfied the first time, give it a second try as they need time to adjust to your specific needs. Each person is different and I guarantee you wont be disappointed! Extremely recommended dental office go to."
    Melinda T.
  • "Alecia, my hygienist is the best ever! So nice, professional, and great at what she does. The entire staff is incredible. Best dentist and hygienist that I've ever been to. I've been going for years. Every visit has been a great experience."
    Kathy R.
  • "Last week I had one of several cleanings and exams. I love the staff here and how respectful they are to my needs--especially since I suffer from anxiety issues. Two days later, I saw a black spot on one of my teeth! I was soooo stressed! I made an appointment and they got me in within a few days. Dr. Magelsen is just a GEM--and checked all my teeth while I was there. The black spot was "just a stain." They didn't even charge me! That is the second time I've had an issue with a tooth and they have accommodated me right away. I love my hygienist and the entire staff! I highly recommend this dentist office!"
    Julie C.
  • "Excellent dental office. The staff makes you feel like family. Superior customer service, very clean office and gentle on the teeth. I have been to many dental offices in my life and this one is by far the best."
    Steven C.
  • "Had a broken front tooth. Got me in day I called and did a wonderful fix. So relieved. Thank you stannwood dental."
    Wendy R.
  • "I have the best experience at this dentist office every time.... they are so warm... and really care about their patients."
    Liv C.
  • "This was my first visit. Kelsey was my hygienist. She was very gentle thorough.and kind. Dr Shawn gave me wonderful advise. I am confident I have found a competent dentist."
    Laisha K.
  • "Best place around. Always pleasant to come here."
    Hewitt R.
  • "What a great morning it was seeing my dental family again after the closure for the COVID 19 pandemic. It was so happy 😊 to be able to see them again to maintain my dental health. Thank you for being my family's dental health family."
    Gary W.
  • "A ‘filling’ by a different dental office fell out. The team at Stanwood Dental Care got me in right away and Dr Magelsen promptly took care of it for me. I can’t say enough good about them!

    Thanks again Dr Magelsen!"
    Anne M.
  • "A professional practice that I have been going to for about ten years. They are warm and caring in their provision of care. They give you the options and let you make the decisions. They also continually educated on preventive dental practices. I have complete confidence in their service. I give them five stars."
    Janice T.
  • "My son and I love (if you can love going to the dentist) going here. The hygienists are great: super friendly, straight forward, and do a great job at cleaning and talking about care of our teeth and gums. So, taking care of our teeth makes visits much easier and less work needed.
    When we have needed work, they are up-front about what needs to be done, explaining the benefits of doing the work vs. NOT fixing the problem, and do an outstanding job at what they do.
    Not to forget the gals up-front - they are great at scheduling appointments that meet our schedule, getting out reminders, and greeting us with smiles."
    Wade J.
  • "Friendly, courteous and very attentive. The entire staff explained everything step by step. Great experience."
