Working closely with his dental colleagues is important to delivering excellent care and Dr. Tarleton spends much of his time in communication and collaboration with his fellow dentists and dental specialists reviewing patient care, treatment plans, and ideas on how to best care for each of their patients. He also is the director of a dental study group that meets together monthly to educate and elevate the group to be able to provide exceptional care.

Dr. Tarleton has had the privilege of working with many great dentists and periodontists throughout his career and is happy to be practicing full time in Kenmore on the shores of Lake Washington.

Being married for over 15 years and welcoming 6 beautiful children into this world has been life’s greatest achievement for the Tarleton’s. With 5 boys and one daughter Dr. Tarleton’s time outside of the office is filled with food, folks, and fun. You can find him playing, jumping, motorcycling, building, remodeling, watching movies, playing the piano, eating lots of pizza, laughing and loving. There is not a day that goes by that you won’t see Dr. Tarleton smile.

“For me, the most important aspect of dentistry is my relationship with my patients. I want my patients to feel comfortable and confident in their treatment plan and to be assured that there is no such thing as too many questions. Achieving oral health takes a team and the most important member of that team is the patient.”
