AWESOME and friendly staff. Made my kids feel safe and comfortable. Answered all our questions and explained things in a way that my 4yo could understand.

I have been taking my kids here since 2011. The staff is friendly and my kids look forward to each 6 month appointment. Thanks for helping us keep healthy teeth
~Tiffany Mecom, 12/5/18, 5/5
She is amazing at getting my son comfortable at each visit before she even looks at his teeth. I love that!

My 2 year old had a great time!
~Laura McCarthy, 12/4/18, Recommended
I like playhouse dental. Cracks me up that after our 1st appointment even our emergency contacts are sent with “likes” and rating request. Calm down 😉 aside from a ridiculously lo,g wait time new patients or not. Nice staff . just wish our 15 min new meet and greet appointment didn’t take over an hour and a half. We will return and recommend. Were a small community dr hill was Nice
~TaylorJo C., 12/1/18
Dr. Hill’s Response: Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate that waiting for the dentist can be a REAL challenge with a busy toddler in our small exam rooms… despite the number of toys/books/stuffies to distract your child. Minutes can seem like hours! Scheduling is tricky since everything is “fluid and changeable” in the land of pediatric dentistry.
If you are under time constraints, please let us know when you check in.
always a great experience

Couldn’t ask for a better place for the care of my child’s teeth. Thanks, Playhouse Dental!
~baruc1853, 11/30/18, 5/5
Top notch! All three of my kids go to this dentist and I would recommend them to anyone.
~Jordan Carr, 11/9/18, 5/5
Everyone in this office is always so friendly, it’s a great experience all around. The staff always make sure the boys are comfortable and are great about explaining what they are doing as they go. Most importantly both of my boys always leave happy and smiling!
~Alexa Glover, 11/8/18, 5/5
I couldn’t be more pleased with Playhouse Dental. The staff is wonderful! They are considerate, and very professional. The dentists are top notch. They are extremely friendly, and a pleasure to talk to! They are also extremely gentle. My son who used to dread going to the dentist, now LOVES going ever since I started taking them to Playhouse! I wish I had a dentist like them when I was growing up!
~Anna Jacobsen, 11/8/18, 5/5
Love Playhouse Dental. They are always so kind and patient with my son. They also make sure I fully understand what’s going on and what we can work on at home.
~Hadley Witteman, 11/3/18, Recommended
Dr. Stout and his staff were absolutely amazing! My son had a very traumatizing experience at a previous dentist and everyone at Playhouse Dental made my son want to go to the dentist again! Would highly recommend! Professional, friendly and very good at what they do!
~Heather Smith, 10/30/18, 5/5
The experience was amazing I will love to come back because the staff was great and I had no trouble or problems.

~Raelene Casaday, 10/21/18, 5/5
I can not express in words the amount of gratitude I have for the staff at Playhouse Dental. My one year old had to have a tooth pulled and the amount of care, compassion and professionalism the staff exhibited was beyond amazing.

Great office, hygienist and dentist! Went to the Anacortes office for the first time yesterday and couldn’t be more pleased with them! Great with teenagers and toddlers!
~Twoangels2314, 10/10/18, 5/5

I absolutely love this Playhouse Dental. My son actually enjoys going to his dentist appointments. Great environment with friendly staff and warm welcomes. Very clean office and we look forward to many more appointments here! Side note: My 7yr old is cavity free as of 10/01/18. Thank you for helping my son establish clean teeth routines and care!
~Kristina Mills, 10/05/18, 5/5
My two kiddos recently had their third visit at Playhouse Dental (Oak Harbor). As with the other two experiences, we were all treated with kindness. Every person we have interacted with, from front desk to the Dentist himself, customer service has been excellent. They came highly recommended from friends & neighbors, and I can see why.
~Erin Colleen, 10/2/18, 5/5
Wonderful experience every time!
~Clarice O’Brien, 9/29/18, 5/5
Playhouse Dental is amazing with my son. Dr. Hill is extremely pleasant and patient with my son. My son asks lots of detailed questions before anyone looks in his mouth. Thank you Dr. Hill for being so great with my pre-teen boy.
~Carron Chernobieff, 9/27/18, 5/5
The staff is very friendly and patient! My daughter has never liked the dentist we used to go to but her very first appointment and she opens right up and let the dentist examine her teeth. I was shocked because I was expecting the crying and fighting. No words can truly describe this team. Hands down the best pediatric dentist I have ever been to.
~Kelsi Hartley, 9/26/18, 5/5
Like one big family ,the staff and dentists at Playhouse are a great team. Despite having had teeth extractions, crowns and spacers , my child has come to enjoy the dental experience.The great treatment he has received here has allowed him to lose his fear of dentists.Thank you Playhouse Dental.
~Roz Jarvis, 9/25/18, 5/5
WE LOOOOOOVE THEIR OFFICE! The ladies/staff are so sweet and actually help you with your children, making them feel comfortable and happy while in the office! That doesn’t take long because there are puzzles, stuffed animals, books, and toys in every room! We will be moving to Utah next week and I am so sad we have to leave this dentistry! On top of all this, I called yesterday to fit in a last minute appointment for my girl who chipped a tooth and they did everything they could to fit us in a few hours from the time I called! And they are fast! I am just all around impressed with everything about this office!
~Britney Lindsey, 9/25/18, 5/5
Excellent service and friendly staff, amazing place, hands down for Dr. Sarah.
~Nadia Solano, 9/23/18, 5/5
They were so wonderful and caring with my daughter when she needed to have a lot of teeth pulled in preparation for braces. She has anxiety and they were able to help her stay calm and explained everything in a kid friendly manner. She told me the only thing she didn’t like about the experience was biting down on the gauze after everything was done, I’d call that a huge win! They have been wonderful with all of our visits but greatly impressed me with this experience. I would recommend them to everyone in need of a pediatric dentist!
~Rebekah McGraw, 9/20/18, 5/5
Bright, friendly folks and an atmosphere that my 3 year-old describes as “exciting!” The tech really handled my nervous little one well and explained everything she was going to do on her level. She did great!
~Dondi MacNair Budde, 9/12/18
Dr. Hill and her entire staff are welcoming and engage with children exceptionally well. The clinic is geared well toward kids from entrance to exam rooms. My children beg to go back to the dentist! Even the language used to describe what might otherwise be scary dental information is kid friendly without being demeaning or patronizing. I highly recommend!
~Debra Schwulst, 9/12/18, 5/5
Staff was very friendly and welcoming for our very first visit. The staff also was very knowledgeable and experienced.
~Deanna Ortega, 9/12/18, 5/5

~Stephanie Sigurdson, 9/11/18, 5/5
Our boys see Dr. Hill at Playhouse and always come out of their checkups smiling (and often holding a balloon ;). She’s great with them and always takes the time to let me know how things are going after their exams. The Playhouse staff is wonderful too – very friendly, effective and good at what they do. Couldn’t recommend this practice enough for excellent dental care for the littles.
~Alexis Wiese, 9/11/18, 5/5
They were so patient, prepared, informative, and amazing! My daughter is 19 months old and i was a little worried but they put me at ease and were prepared! Definitely recommend!
~Corina Sanchez, 9/6/18, 5/5
The whole team is kind and caring. Dr. Hill explains things to both kids and parents in a way that is super helpful and understandable.
Playhouse Dental makes going to the dentist a “not scary” experience for kids.
~Meredith McIlmoyle, 9/5/18, 5/5
I don’t know how there could be a better dentist’s office experience for kids, but the people at Playhouse Dental seem like the kind who are always trying to improve.
~Jessica Guzik, 9/5/18, 5/5
My toddler is afraid of everything having to do with doctors and dentists. The staff at Playhouse Dental has always been wonderful with him and made it is good of an experience as possible for him. They are very friendly and the dentist is always thorough, but works quickly to be able to let my toddler get done with the exam in a short amount of time. I am very happy to bring my son here and would highly recommend them!
~Carrie Stucky, 9/4/18, 5/5
Assisted in follow-up with a tooth injury. Dr. Stout was great with my daughter.
~Summer Wright, 9/2/18, 5/5
Playhouse Dental is amazing. They are so great with making sure the kids are as comfortable as they can be. My son has the worst build up ever and Dr. Stout is always so patient with him even when he is freaking out. I am so glad there is a dental office where there staff is patient, kind and always in good spirits!! I could ask for a better office to go to!!!
~Angela Harstad McGee, 9/1/18, 5/5
Having a child who is terrified of loud noises, you can imagine the dentist could be a terrifying experience for them. The hygienist we had took an extra five minutes to show my daughter each instrument, explain what it was used for, the noise it made, and let her feel them. My daughter went from crying and stiff with fear to relaxed an generally okay with what was happening. I won’t go anywhere else after this experience!
~Chelsea Bordon, 8/31/18, 5/5
They are always so great with the kids and do a great job at making kids feel comfortable. Keep up a great work!!

~Erin John Mitchell, 8/23/18
I started bringing my son into Dr. Hill and Dr. Stout about one year ago. It was just before his first birthday, and he already had a decent number of teeth. Dr Hill was absolutely amazing with us on his first visit. Today was my sons 2 year appt and we saw Dr. Stout. Dr Stout was also amazing. We’d seen him once, in between the 1 and 2 year appts, for general questions. They are so amazing with the kiddos there, it really is so comforting to know that his first experiences with a dentist are all positive.
~Jennifer Thomas, 8/22/18, 5/5
Best dentist in Oak Harbor!
~Kyle Young, 8/21/18
We’ve been seeing Dr. Stout for years. He is so wonderful in thoroughly explaining anything that is going on, how we can better things and anything that may potentially need to be taken care of in the future. My 2 year old actually looks forward to going to the dentist because it’s such a fun, positive environment, and he gets to watch big sis go first and observe all of the fun, tickle tools. Our family highly recommends Playhouse Dental to anyone with kids of any age, that is looking for an office with kind, friendly and outgoing staff, where you’ll always feel welcomed.

~Nicole C., 8/15/18, 5/5

~Ada Moseley, 8/15/18, 4/5
Our visit was awesome. My son was a little hard to work with but the dental assistant was able to accommodate him and making it a fun experience for him. Dr.Hill was awesome. They don’t just call them and start working on there teeth, they build a little bond beforehand and I LOVE IT. Definitely a fun environment for kids. After having a bad encounter with our previous dentist, I decided to come here and they did not fail!! Thank you so much ladies.
~Prescilla Orozco, 8/15/18, 5/5
Dr Hill is so patient with my kids. I just love her!
~Luanne Ferrell, 8/12/18, 5/5
All four of my kids have been going here since we moved here in 2015. The staff there has always been kind, my children love it there. My best overall experience was during an emergency. My son fell and broke his front tooth, I called playhouse Dental, left them a message to notify them of the situation. I received a call back very quickly, the receptionist was very kind and scheduled my son in a few hours later. When I went in i was told my son needed his tooth pulled and I was so scared for him but I knew it needed to be done. The staff was amazing! They were so kind, patient, and the dentist was very quick to do the job. I wanted to burst into tears and hug all of them and say thank you for making such a horrible experience a good one. I hope God blesses all the people who work here, and continues to bring them lots of people. I highly recommend this place to anyone with little ones! They are the best, you can trust they will get the job done the right way.
~Nancy A. Smith, 8/10/18, 5/5
My daughter had her first visit and it was amazing. They were so kind to her and made it painless! Excellent service!

~Mary S Higley, 8/9/18, 5/5
This place is amazing. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The facility is clean and very kid friendly. Dentist always walks us through what he’s going to do and you can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. Glad we found this dental office to take our son to.
~Emmylou Paden, 8/6/18, 5/5
OMG why can’t I be a patient here!?! Had an appointment for one of my twins who has a cavity and they were able to fit in his sister for an exam! Now we have a full game plan for both kiddos to have a healthy smile. From the phone call to make the appointment until we left with balloons in hand it was a wonderful experience! Thank you! Thank you!
~Stephanie Gonzalez, 8/6/18, 5/5
Very friendly staff! We’ve been going to the Oak Harbor location for over 30 years, 2 generations! My 17 year old was upset when she aged out of Playhouse Dental, no one has been quite as gentle as them. We are lucky enough continue on with my 19 month old, and she has proven to be quite comfortable there.
~Jolene Pincin, 8/5/18, 5/5
My son recently had his very first dentist apt at another location a week prior to going to Playhouse. All I have to say is his first visit at playhouse was NOTHING like the his first visit to the other place! He didn’t cry once he had a fun time with the dr and all the nurses while they played games to get my to check his teeth my 3 year old didn’t even realize he was at the dentist! My son doesn’t go with people he doesn’t know but had no problem with the staff there! By the end of the apt my boyfriend could have left without my son knowing he was gone because he was having a good time with the staff. My boyfriend said he didn’t feel like he was getting yelled at this time or being told how bad of a parent he was! Instead he was getting recommendations of alternative ways to help our 3 year old! All I want to say is I DO NOT regret scheduling my sons apt to playhouse. I am so thankful I did and my son is excited to go back!
~Skye Fodor, 7/27/18, 5/5

Dr. Hills and her staff have been wonderful for the many years my children have gone to her. She allowed one of my children to return the next day when they were refusing tonget the cleaning done. Recently my 4 year old was willing to get her teeth cleaned, xrayed and able to get her wiggle dealt with within an efficient time. I honestly expected longer time & being called back to calm her.
~Summer, 7/23/18, 5/5

~Koa G., 7/18/18
Best experience I could have imagined. Dr hill was beyond amazing as well as everyone else we encountered. I raved about them for hours after the appointment. We had just over a 30 min drive and I would drive 2 hours if I had to just to go back. I can’t say enough good things!
~Abby F., 7/18/18, 5/5
We used to travel to Oak Harbor or Mt Vernon to see a pediatric dentist, so it is wonderful to have one in Anacortes now. Kids are treated great and they provide great tips for parents each time we visit.

My Kids loved going here. They keep asking when they can go back. Everyone was so helpful and nice and made my kiddos feel very welcome and comfortable.
~Kristin Fuhr, 7/16/18, 5/5
My wife was very specific that my daughter does not like men dentists, this is also male doctors so don’t feel too bad. But it has made my daughter that more scared of coming back to the dentist. Please next time, if my wife has specified something, follow the request.
~William E., 7/13/18
Playhouse Response: Thank you for the feedback. Clearly we missed your preference for a female dentist and apologize for the misstep. We are happy to make a note of it going forward. We ALL want a great outcome every time!
Absolutely fantastic dentist, both of my kids loved Dr Sarah Hill.
~Chila, 7/14/18, 5/5
We have been going to the Oak Harbor Playhouse Dental for your about five years. The girls and myself have been treated with respect and kindness. Thank you to the staff and Dr. Hill you all are amazing.
~Mary S. Rose, 7/13/18, 5/5
Great all around.
~Charles Lindsay, 7/13/18, 5/5
Our experience was great, as always but 8 do have a request or suggestion. We would prefer not to use fluoride products in our young daughters mouth. At the beginning of her cleaning I was informed your office didn’t carry child fluoride free child flavors, only mint. I gave in to make everyone’s experience a good one but would love to have better options in the future. Thanks.
~Brittany L., 6/29/18
Dr. Hill’s Response: I have been looking into some options for fluoride free prophy paste other than mint. You and your daughter will hopefully be pleased with either “Fruity” or “White Chocolate.” While we do believe that fluoride helps move teeth away from decay through a remineralization process, we do respect your right to opt out. Thank you for partnering with us on that journey.
Mom’s Response: Wow, thank you for taking my concern to heart. I’m pleasantly surprised you have brought in some child friendly non fluoride options, and love the fact that you respect our decisions. Thank you for being so awesome!
Sorry to push the ‘Not Great’ button. We had a good experience and we love Dr. Hill. But since you asked, I do want to share feedback that’s a little negative. It’s unprofessional to talk to the parents in the waiting room about anything to do with the child’s dental condition, treatment plan or any other concerns. It’s private and generally uncomfortable for the parent. This has happened multiple times to me and other parents in the waiting room and it’s clear that they are uncomfortable as well. This should be done in a private setting. Thanks for asking for my feedback as I appreciate your desire to provide a good experience.
~Stephanie R., 6/29/18
Dr. Hill’s response: Thank you for the feedback! You make some excellent points that we will incorporate into our practice. Our Oak Harbor office is extremely tight on space, and challenges us to maintain the balance between clear communication, privacy and efficiency. Thank you for helping us prioritize the first two values over the latter.
I love this place and so do my children
~Kristina Useman, 7/10/18, 5/5
The care, time and effort that Playhouse Dental puts into their patients is not only amazing but comforting. We very much appreciate them!
~Lindsay Formhals, 7/7/18, 5/5
I was recommended this place and I am SO happy I made an appointment. This place is so awesome! From the second I walked in I felt welcomed and my 3 year old son felt instantly comfortable and excited to be at their cute kid area. My son usually gets nervous at any kind of appointment but The sweetest dental assistant made him feel quite at ease. He was hesitant to get on the chair but she talked him thru it and he was even excited to get on after that. Then the dentist came! Before even getting to his teeth she spent time making him giggle and not be scared of her (which he usually was at a previous dentist at other office). He willingly sat perfectly still for her and I know that’s because he trusted her and was completely comfortable (he was NOT like that at his last appointment in a different location)When he was done they gave him a little treat bag,a balloon and even an extra balloon for his stuffed animal he brought. Sh even specifically said good bye to him and his stuffed animal Moe!
My son just received a thank you card and some stickers for him and Moe for coming! He got SO excited when he received this. By the smile on his face he clearly remembered the fun place he visited.
I’m not one to yelp much or even give specific details about locations but this place went above and beyond that I had to write and say THANK YOU so much for making my boy love the dentist, making it such a fun experience, taking time to care and putting this mamas heart and nerves at ease. I’d recommend this place to everyone and anyone!
~Julienne E., 7/7/18, 5/5
they are all really nice and they are very good with the kids. i have 2 boys one did very good
the other one was really nervous but they where really calm with him
i’m very happy with them
~Emily Mitchell, 7/5/18, 5/5
My son loves it here, and he’s usually very nervous going in, but not with them!
~Lindsey Moniz, 7/3/18, 5/5

~Christina Jump, 7/3/18, 5/5
My kids actually like going to the dentist! Fun toys, super friendly staff. We love playhouse dental! Dr. Hill is fantastic with children. Unlike most dentists (in my experience) she has realistic requests for my children’s oral health upkeep. I 100% recommend playhouse dental.
~Devvan Alexandra Schols, 7/2/18, 5/5
Exceptional level of care and the team went above and beyond to ensure my daughter’s comfort during her first visit.

~Rebecca W., 6/25/18, 5/5
Every experience at Playhouse Dental has been a delight. They sent a thank you note to my son with more stickers and just made his whole visit special. Dr. Hill is amazing with kids, made my son feel very comfortable and I felt very heard and understood. They truly care about kids having a good experience with the dentist over profit.
~Ariel Williams, 6/23/18, 5/5
Great place! The staff are wonderful with kids. My son felt at ease before and after his appointment. He loved getting a card in the mail from them after his procedure. Highly recommend!!
~Kendall Boyle, 6/22/18, 5/5

~Maurice Davis, 6/22/18, 5/5
My young kids love going to the dentist since Playhouse Dental in Anacortes treats them so well. The staff and environment is very kid and family friendly and skilled with any teeth issues.
~Brooke Freeman, 6/22/18, 5/5
Dr. Stout and all the nurses/staff are excellent!!!
On the other hand Dr. Hill will NEVER touch my child mouth again. When my daughter was 3 shes 15 now I think she had to have caps put in her mouth. She had a mild surgery 6 caps on top 6 caps on bottom. She left a piece of surgical equipment in my child’s mouth. When I asked about why she couldn’t bite down she told me sometimes that happens after a procedure so after a week till our follow up. Dr. Hill said to me have you ever made a mistake? I said why then she proceeded to tell me about the item left in her mouth and would have to be taken out in the office that day. Not cool I never took her back till this year because she was so traumatized and scared of a dentist. Oh by the way my daughter has been deaf since birth.
~Traci Wisdom, 6/22/18, 4/5
Dr. Hill’s response: Traci, I am glad that your daughter has been able to start her dental journey once again with Dr. Stout. He is an amazing and kind person, and an excellent dentist. We are committed to growing healthy smiles for a lifetime. I am sorry that your daughter had such a rough start. We wish you both well on the journey.
Best dentist around. Great with my kids and my kids actually enjoy going!!!! Super sweet and nice Dr.
~Ashley, 6/21/18, 5/5
We LOVE Playhouse Dental, they are a great addition to Oak Harbor! My son is always a little nervous going to the dentist. My son has had to have oral surgery and a couple of fillings so he wanted to know exactly what they were going to do to him, step-by-step. For the first few times he didn’t want laughing gas on his face, and it took him awhile to warm him up. Dr. Sarah Hill stepped in assured me his resistance wasn’t an issue, showed more than enough patience and stayed professional. Dr. Sarah Hill walked my son through the process, took the extra time to make him comfortable, let him watch a movie while laying the chair and won over his trust and was able to get the job done. During all this she could see I was nervous about his reaction and even assured me it was fine and that she deals with this kind of thing all the time. The staff is more than friendly and always remembers our names and shows tremendous patience as well. Let’s not forget the goodie bags and balloons on the way out, I mean what dental practice does that for your kids!? If you have a child and are looking for a great dentist look no further, Playhouse Dental is it!
~Carron Chernobieff, 6/21/18, 5/5
Lovely facility, friendly staff!
Our first time to the Anacortes office, nice, clean, and orderly facility yet stil kid friendly. Staff was pleasant and attentive. No complaints from the boys either.
~Adrienne Coatney, 6/21/18, 5/5
Exceptional service, and caring
My daughter broke a tooth and they got us in and took care of it immediately with no hesitation and completely put her and my mind at ease. i would recommend them to any parent for their children.
~Jeff Webb, 6/20/18, 5/5
We took both our kids (3yo & 1yo) for their first check up today and the staff was so wonderful. Everyone was kind and patient and informative. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who has children that are prone to anxiousness and are apprehensive to new people (or if the parents are anxious about the experience too!). So, so wonderful. Glad we found this place!
~Katie DeBord, 6/14/18, 5/5
Wonderful people here! Dr. Stout is amazing!
~Samantha Braddy, 6/14/18, 4/5
My son is a BIG talker. The hygienist was so sweet with him. She answered all of his questions and seemed genuinely interested in what he had to say. So many people seem to get frustrated with “busy” kids. It was refreshing as a mom to see my little guy treated with dignity and respect. The dentist was quick and thorough. I am very pleased with our experience!
~Tabatha L., 6/12/18, 5/5
Fun and professional setting
I loved Playhouse Dental. Fun stuff to do in the waiting room and in the back. The staff was great with kids and the dentist was really easy to talk to and didn’t make you feel rushed. I wouldn’t take my kids anywhere else now.
~Tara Valencia, 6/9/18, 5/5
Wonderful, Quick, and great with children.
Check in is quick and easy with friendly people at the counter. Toys and books are available for waiting. Today we got a tour of the office and the assistant did a great job making it fun for my toddler to familiarize himself with what will happen there in the future. The assistant and dentist were quick and made every aspect fun for the little one. Stickers and balloons afterward.
~Katie H., 6/7/18, 5/5
Inviting environment with professional and fun staff!

Amazing Dental Office
My daughter had her first fillings today. The staff was extremely patient and kind and considerate of my daughters needs.
~Ashley Wood, 6/5/18, 5/5
High Quality, Excellence Service
Entire office was exceptional! My children enjoyed their experience and left happy and excited for their next visit.
~Amy Jorden, 6/5/18, 5/5
Playhouse Dental is really awesome. Both my kids had a great experience and I hope they’ve given my kids a great foundation for their dental needs. All of the staff were friendly, professional, and really fun.
~Jes Wagner, 6/2/18, 5/5
Friendly, professional office
They are always very helpful. From when you walk in and are greeted to the professional staff in the back. They are always asking if you have concerns, tell you up front which procedures are being done that day, accept very graciously when a procedure is too costly for you at that time and you opt out. Kids build a healthy relationship about going to the dentist!
~Cindi Morley, 6/2/18, 5/5
Best Kid Dentist!
I just brought my eternally suspicious 2-year-old to Dr Hill for her first dental exam. The waiting area is clean, comfortable, and full of neat toys. My daughter jumped right in and made herself at home. When we were taken back to the exam room, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there were no large scary dental chairs or cold, clinical settings. The exam room was a small, office-like space with more neat toys and books to distract my toddler while we waited for Dr Hill. Dr Hill herself was kind and soft spoken. She chatted with my toddler for a few minutes to make her more comfortable, and then examined her while she was sitting on my lap. The exam itself was so fast and smooth that my daughter hardly knew what happened! I was so impressed. This was not the dreaded “child at the dentist” experience I was expecting! Cannot recommend highly enough!
~Siobhan Gallagher-Bloemer, 6/1/18, 5/5
Excellent Kid Dental Care
My kids actually like going here! And I am super impressed with this dental care for my kids. Dr. Hill has been their main dentist – she is extremely competent and a straightforward communicator, and answers all of my many questions. The few times we’ve had to come in “pronto” due to injury or pain, we’ve been fit in that day. All staff – front desk staff (Jeramy is wonderful), Dental Hygienists, and both Dentists – are kind and professional. We like both offices, and will happily make the extra trip to the Anacortes office (fun and new and modern).
~Sheilagh Byler, 6/1/18, 5/5
A+ Professional, Friendly, Respectful & CLEAN!
I love this office! The staff are all very friendly and Dr. Hill is absolutely amazing! She’s very understanding of children’s needs and uses terms that don’t scare them. My 10 year old has anxiety and is always convinced a trip to the dentist means teeth being “ripped out”. Dr. Hill is always able to get the required treatments done and asks him permission to remove any teeth that are hanging by a hair. If he says no, she’s very supportive! As for younger kids, my 12 month old had his first visit and she was able to look in his mouth without him squirming because she showed him that the gloves go on her hand, and her hand is okay by touching my hand first, then his, then we laid him back so his head was in her lap and she got to take a nice long peek! He even let her get fluoride on! Thank you all so much! I can’t imagine going anywhere else.
~Karlee Faulk, 5/31/18, 5/5
Professional & friendly
We just started going here. All 4 of my kids were seen right around the same time and everyone was so great with them. ( kids are 8 -1 yr old). I was extremely happy with our experience & we are all looking forward to going back. My kids saw Dr. Joseph Stout & his amazing team. They explained everything to me & walked me through everything with the kids. So happy to find such an amazing dentist for my children.
~Susan Calow, 5/31/18, 5/5
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Took my 1 and 3 year olds in for their first checkup and they had a really great, happy experience!
~Sarah Hoy, 5/29/18, 5/5
Love love love
I absolutely love Dr. Hill and all the staff!! My kids have never been so excited to go to the dentist! Dr. Hill is amazing with all kids and is great with my littlest who is 2yrs old!!! I’m so excited and thankful to have found Playhouse dental!

The staff is great. They are always motivated and know how to deal with kids no matter what age. Highly recommend them to anybody moving to Oak Harbor.
~Darwin Meyer, 5/23/18, 5/5
The best place!!!!!!!
~Beatrice Espinoza, 5/22/18, 5/5
Every time we go to Playhouse Dental we have a great experience! Dr. Stout is wonderful and all the staff are very accommodating and friendly. They’re also quick! We were only there for probably 30 or 45 minutes for a cavity filling. I told my 4 year old last night that we were going to the dentist tomorrow and she said, “Yes! I love the dentist! They give you balloons and stickers!” All 3 of my kids enjoy going to the dentist; and that is a win in my book.
~Becca Swan, 5/22/18, 5/5
Lets me know how and whats being done.
~Kim T., 5/21/18, 5/5
Professional and friendly
The staff is always very friendly and patient with my kids. My youngest has had some fear when it comes to the dentist and they are always so understanding and take their time to get him comfortable and help ease him into his check up. The dental staff is amazing (including Jeremy at the front desk, he’s always so helpful and kind)
~Margie Richardson, 5/17/18, 5/5

We are new to this area and really love this practice. The staff and providers are kind and patient. Appointments are on time! Really loved Dr. Hill!!

Emergency visit review
We recently came in for our scheduled cleaning as always it’s the best experience. Today we had to come in for an emergency visit, my first time. They got us in quickly, assessed and had a plan immediately that I was comfortable with. We won’t go elsewhere. Thank you!!
~Shannon Meadows, 5/7/18, 5/5
Dr. Hill seemed unfamiliar with SPD in general. My son wasn’t himself because his father was out of town, he’d smashed his fingers in the door the night before which cause him to go to bed late when he was already behind on sleep, etc. I explain this to the medical assistant and Dr. Hill. Keeping in mind that we’d have a 100% successful dental visit and cleaning at another Family Dentist office. She tried shaming him “2 year olds can do this”, she tried to tell me not to tell my son what to expect at visits, which is the exact opposite of what helped our visit to another clinic end in 100% cooperation, and she told me my son as “playing me”. I had fully explained why we were having a hard morning, and I fulling explained his SPD diagnosis and the specific therapy he was in. I absolutely should not feel like I need to be bring his occupation therapist, ophthalmologist and visual therapist in to this but when having diagnosis’s from three people isn’t enough for her to not self diagnose my son then I cannot have a working relationship with her. I spoke none of this to my child and tried to stay open minded during the visit, but when discussing future visits my son was very clear that he did not like it there and that he does not like Dr. Hill. The family dentist practice referred us just as a precaution and since my son did wonderfully at their office we will be returning there for future care. When looking for a dentist in the beginning I chose our current family practice because I knew the open floor plan at the children’s offices would be hard for him. I highly suggest you keep this in mind when seeing other SPD patients. Seeing us in the small room initially would probably worked much better, instead of dragging us all over the place. I fully intend to share my experience with my local parents of children with SPD.
~Alyssa Oczkewicz , 5/4/18, 1/5
I am sorry that our attempts to find a workable scenario including a “skill build” follow up appointment failed to meet your expectations. You know your son best, and I am glad that you have other options. We truly try to find a win-win scenario for each child. Best wishes in your dental journey.
~Sarah Hill, DDS
I’m sad it’s just for kids
All around FANTASTIC experience!!! Not only were they absolutely amazing and calming to my daughter who I thought would be completely resistant to let anyone touch her teeth, but it was a great friendly atmosphere and calming for me as well! They have truly thought everything out, an anticipated both the parents and child’s needs. I cannot say enough great things!
~Chantel Danger, 5/3/18, 5/5
Amazing First Appointment
This was our daughter’s first ever dentist appointment and Dr. Sarah Hill was so good with her and very helpful about what we should do as parents. Our daughter was very comfortable and we were in and out quickly.
~Jessi Rueter, 5/2/18, 5/5
The staff is always so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office is beautiful and clean and they have some of the coolest toys for the kids to play with. My son actually looks forward to going to the dentist and almost doesn’t want to leave once we’re there.
~Julia Holmgren, 5/1/18, 5/5
Great atmosphere. Kids enjoy going.
~Ada Moseley, 4/30/18, 4/5
Dental visit was awesome. The staff and dentist were friendly, at the same very professional, and the whole process was followed up with explanation.
~Thelma Ekpen, 4/23/18, 5/5
Love the staff, Love the way the treat the kids, and absolutely Love Dr.Hill!!!
~Natalie Silva, 4/20/18, 5/5
They out do themselves every time.
~Katherine Morris, 4/17/18, 5/5
Very impressed with the dentist.. not with the hygienists (assistants)
Our first appointment with my 7 & 3 year old went okay but I was concerned with how impatient and annoyed the hygienist acted towards my kids. (3 year olds first visit and my 7 year old just gets a little nervous but does fine) The dentist was amazing and we love her so we decided to bring my 7 year old back for sealants. At that visit I was told to wait in the waiting room and nicely explained that I’ll be going back with her. She then tried to tell me to get someone to watch my other daughter since she was with me. I nicely told her we’d be going back with her since she wants me there. We were quiet and in no way bothersome or in the way so I don’t appreciate being told not to sit in with my daughter. I hope the hygientists (assistants) learn some compassion and patience.
~Jackie D. 4/11/18, 3/5
I am sorry that your experience was less than optimal. We love caring for children, and will always work with you for the best outcome.
Couldn’t be happier
Every time we visit I’m reminded of why I’m so glad my kids go to playhouse. They look forward to the appointment because of how fun and relaxed the staff makes the environment. They encourage my kids to be independent and brave while empowering both them and I with helpful tools and advice about healthy habits. They’re just the best!
~Nicole Bailey, 4/13/18, 5/5
A Quality Experience
This was our 6mo follow up visit. My daughter felt comfortable and did much better with the dental assistant before Dr. Hill did her check up. I am thankful and impressed by their understands no and expert interaction with my daughter. They were able to get a four year old to happily have her teeth cleaned and examined. The dental pick did make her scared, but thanks to Dr Hill, she let her examine most of her teeth before tears started. Of course, balloons and stickers don’t hurt either. Thanks for the great experience!
~Dana Aldis, 4/12/18, 5/5
The staff at Playhouse Dental was amazing! They were so patient, kind, and kept us informed throughout the entire process.
~Ryan Zimmerman, 4/12/18, 5/5
Always a wonderful experience!
All the staff are pleasant and the environment is perfect for kids!
~Jessica Cantrell, 4/10/18, 5/5
All around awesome!
I have recommended Playhouse to everyone I know! I used to take my kids to a dentist office in Mt.Vernon on LaVenture Rd. But after a couple appointments I knew it was not the dentist for us. Over the last couple years I’ve had more than a handful of friends telling me to try Playhouse. Before we had our initial appointment they were already great about communication. Soon as we entered the office the vibe was so fun & refreshing. Different than they typical dental office. My kids eyes lit up, I’ve never heard of an office like this. What’s really cool is my kiddos definitely think of the dentist as a FUN place now rather than dreading it as before, which makes a world of a difference to a child. The dentist & the dental assistants were all amazing with my kids! Their anxiety of the dentist went away as soon as the assistant started talking to. I have an autistic 6yr old son & the work he had done would have most likely triggered a melt down but he was so relaxed and at ease with everyone. That means a lot to me. There’s not a thing I would change about Playhouse Dental… Except for them to take me as a patient too! I’m more than thankful that I made the switch for my kids. If you are contemplating bringing your kid(s) to Playhouse then I HIGHLY recommend it. I’m sure you will be as happy as I am & your kids will be thanking you.
~Krista Enneberg, 3/27/18, 5/5

Service, care of my daughter
You guys were fast, efficient, and very informative about the options for my daughter’s care. But mostly you are great with my kid and that’s what counts. She seems to do great with you guys. Dr. Stout and his team are so wonderful
~Kimberlee Wammack, 3/23/18, 5/5
My diva of a six year old is usually very weary of new places and people. Her first visit she was completely at ease and asked when she can go back! Friendly and fun staff. Will be going back!
~Leigh Bunch, 3/21/18, 5/5
Fantastic treatment of my almost 3 year old
My son went into the office crying and they immediately cheered him up! He played with the toys and didn’t even realize he was waiting for an appointment. When called back he was treated like a person and asked questions as well as me (his Mom). They decided to try him out in the chair since he is almost 3. When he would start to freak out they saw and changed what they were doing. What a great experience! Dr Stout is awesome. The balloon at the end made it all worth it as well! Thank you Playhouse Dental!
~Laura Carothers, 3/19/18, 5/5
Always happy with play house dental service very polite thorough and make the scary experience a happy experience . Thank u all who work there. Sincerely Misty Rice
~Misty Rice, 3/14/18, 5/5
Great First Dental Experience!
We took our 2 year old son for his first dental check up today. I was nervous, but Dr. Stout was amazing. Our son actually became very excited at the sound of his voice and he cooperated during the cleaning and examination. It was amazing! At the end he was given a balloon and applauded for doing such a great job.
~Melissa A. 3/14/18, 5/5
My daughter had recently developed a fear of visiting the dentist. After an unhappy experience at another dental office, we were referred to Playhouse Dental. They have exceeded any expectations that our entire family had. The entire office was friendly and welcoming. Beyond the surface, Dr. Stout was AMAZING. He was understanding, attentive, encouraging, patient, kind and engaging; not only with my daughter but with me as well. I appreciated the frequent updates from Dr. Stout as he was treating my daughter. In addition to Dr. Stout, the office ladies were pleasant and efficient. Thank you to the entire Playhouse Anacortes staff for exceeding our expectations!!! My daughter can’t wait to come back and I can’t say I disagree!!!
~Amber Rains, 3/14/18, 5/5
Daughters 1st appointment
They were great and knew what they were doing. So happy with everything.
~Trisha Butler, 3/14/18, 5/5
Love this place!
Staff is amazing.
~Skyla Dean, 3/9/18, 5/5
I am so happy I chose to take my daughter to Playhouse dental. I was a walk-in and was just going to make an appointment for the future because my daughter had recently lost a tooth and they managed to get me in right then and there and every member of staff I dealt with from front desk to the dental assistant to the doctor was phenomenal! I was a very happy customer at the end of the day! They put me in a fabulous mood!
~Lisa Grady, 3/8/18, 5/5
Very good service!
~Elcel Bradley, 3/7/18, 5/5
Quality, Caring, practice.
My daughter has pretty special needs. This practice was patient, kind, and intelligent when it came to those needs. I was impressed by today’s visit.
~Amber Grymes, 3/5/18, 5/5
Eva’s first dental appointment and she didn’t cry!
Fun atmosphere and plenty to see! Our 3 year old’s first experience was about 70% successful but she was very proud to be on the No cavity tree. Thank you for a fun experience!
~Dondi Budde, 3/2/18, 5/5
Such a Warm Professional Staff
My son had to have a tooth “wiggled” out this morning. Dr. Hill’s attentive care of my sons mouth and for his emotional health is exemplary. The staff is so warm, welcoming and very professional. Our favorite dental office!
~Amy Jansen, 03/02/2018 5/5
Staff Was Excellent
Five of my kids had cleanings yesterday and the staff did an amazing job at keeping a peaceful atmosphere, reducing anxiety for the kids, and communicating with me. Dr. Stout is always so kind and gentle with each one.
~Angela O, 03/02/2018 5/5
Great Pediatric Dentist
My toddler is extremely afraid of doctors and dentists offices. The staff at Playhouse Dental does an amazing job of working with us to make my son as comfortable as possible and to work as quickly as possible so he can be in and out pretty fast. Their waiting room has plenty to keep kids busy while waiting to be called back and the whole staff is great!
~Carrie Stucky, 03/01/2018 5/5
High Quality Service. Great with My Toddler
Both the dentist and her assistants gave my daughter and I a wonderful experience and we cannot wait to come back! Thank you for engaging her in the appointment and for being so kind. This is an important age to get her used to the dentist and your team did an amazing job!
~Katelyn Morgan, 03/01/2018 5/5
I’m so impressed by Playhouse Dental. Dr. Hill’s methods of making my toddler feel calm and secure are like magic.
~Jessica Guzik, 2/28/18 5/5
Great Dental Experience
My 3 kids have been going to Playhouse Dental for about 3 years now and we couldn’t be more pleased with their service. We have seen both Dr. Stout and Dr. Hill and we have always had a great experience; whether it be going in for cleaning and checkups or restorative work on cavities. My almost 4- year- old had her first appointment yesterday for actual dental work and I was super impressed at how well they handled her visit. They made her completely comfortable, let her watch one of her favorite shows during the work and came out to tell me how she was doing partway through. I especially appreciated that because I was a little nervous at how she would handle getting a cavity filled. Afterwards they even let my other two kids who hadn’t had any work done but were just waiting with me have a balloon and a sticker. I would definitely recommend Playhouse Dental to anyone looking for a great pediatric dentist.
~Becca Swan, 02/26/2018 5/5
We Love Playhouse
With every appointment whether for cleanings or restorative, I always feel my children are well taken care of and that they receive quality, genuine dental care from the front desk to the dentist. Thank you playhouse! We are lucky to have you on the island!
~Suzy Strelecky, 02/22/2018 5/5
Love the way the staff treats the children and parents. They are amazing! My kids love the balloons and stickers. My little one was always afraid of dentist until she came here, now she love it! Thank you!!! Definitely is highly recommended!!!
~Loriann Mulero, 2/20/2018 5/5
All Around Excellent
On time, clean, friendly, efficient. Communicated well and dealt with a cavity found while we were there for a cleaning -saving me another trip and another day off work and school. Great peds dentist!
~HL, 2/20/2018 5/5
Welcoming From the Moment You Walk in the Doors
Our experience at Playhouse Dental was better than I could have expected. This was my daughter’s first visit and I was thrilled that it was a lap visit. Dr. Hill made the experience fun and interesting for my 12 month old. She explained all of her findings and also detailed what future appointments would entail. I look forward to having Dr.Hill and her staff be a part of my daughter’s healthcare team!
~Allison Engert, 02/16/2018 5/5
Very Kid Friendly and Professional
From the office staff to the assistant to the dentist everyone was very friendly and great with my daughter. Dr. Hill is absolutely amazing with children. She makes it fun and interesting to them. The assistant we had (Janet) was also amazing. She was very gentle and caring.
~Rachael Vaughn, 02/16/2018 5/5
I love bringing my kids here, the staff is amazing and they do such great work. My kids love coming here because of the balloons and stickers, I’m glad I found out about Playhouse Dental. I would recommend this place to anyone
~Abrianna Sampson, 02/14/2018 5/5
Very nice noisy atmosphere. Clean and comfortable. The receptionist and hygienist were friendly and professional.
~Ada Moseley, 02/08/2018 5/5
They always go beyond my expectations. Really professional, the moment you step in the receptionist greets you, the assistant takes your kids and the dentist checks on them until you leave with a smile!
~Imelda Veliz, 02/08/2018 5/5
First Visit With The Dentist
Today I took my 19 month old daughter in to see Dr. Stout. The office was clean and welcoming. There was so much for her to do, both in the waiting room and the consultation room. The staff took the time to get down to her level when talking to her. I appreciated the fact that her first visit was a lap examination rather then putting her in the chair. This eased both of our worries. I look forward to having Dr. Stout be a part of my daughters medical team moving forward.
~Sarah Connors, 02/08/2018 5/5
There’s a lot to be said about our experience there. After being told my children had 6+ cavities each and needed tooth extractions for cosmetic reasons, I sought out second opinions. Not only were there no cavities to be found but I wasn’t treated rudely for questioning it. Also no one saw any reason my six year should have her teeth pulled. This office is more concerned about their business than their patients. I’d love to see the what kind of up-charging insurance fraud is going on in their billing department to aid their pursuit of thickening their wallets.
~Chris F, 02/08/2018 1/5
Chris, I am sorry that you were disappointed with the treatment recommendations that you received last SUMMER for your children. Especially how you felt when questioning my recommendations. I generally love to partner with parents and families in educating them about their oral status and options for improving it… and there are always options! I wish you and your children the best in your new dental home.
Amazing With Nervous Children
My 6 year old had tooth pain. She was terrified of going to the dentist. They got us in the same day which was so surprising. As soon as you walk in, it’s literally a playhouse. Fun, relaxing, clean, friendly. Dentist and staff are extremely patient, funny, honest, and most importantly……THEY HAVE CANDY SCENTED GLOVES!!!!!
~Nicole Arian, 02/06/2018 5/5
First Dental Visit
Great business! My son was very nervous but the dental assistant, Ashley, was very friendly. We were very pleased with the staff, from the front desk to the dentist. Everyone was informative and nice.
~Eunice Arnold, 02/04/2018 5/5
Dr. Stout and his assistants were extremely helpful. He explained everything to us in a detailed manner and answered all of our questions. I appreciate the care he took in our son and highly recommend him. Thank you!!
~L. P. 01/30/2018 5/5
Amazing Dentist & Assistants! My 3 Kids & Both My Husband & I LOVE This Office.
Every part of our experience with Playhouse has been perfect! The customer service is great & the office is so clean, nice & up to date. The staff is so great to us & even the ‘paperwork’ (done with help & very easy to do on a computer) part was so simple from the start. The entire vibe instantly makes for an anxiety free & fun appointment for my kids which is a completely different experience from their last dental office. An experience like this can make the entire difference in children having a positive lifelong approach to healthy dental care. My kids now look forward to their next 6 month check up thanks to Playhouse Dental!
~Krista Enneberg, 01/29/2018 5/5
Clean And Very Friendly Staff!
We’ve been coming here since my daughter popped her first tooth! She is 8 now and obviously has a lot more teeth to take care of! Every time we come, the staff is very friendly and welcoming. The environment is very clean and the office seems to flow well, from front office to assistants to the doctors. In my opinion it’s very important to keep children feeling comfortable with going to the dentist to promote good oral hygiene into adulthood. Playhouse Dental does a great job!
~Jacqueline Hussey, 01/27/2018 5/5
Both times I brought my daughters to the practice I had a wonderful experience. They were very clear with what was happening during the appointment and also what follow up was needed. I felt that the entire staff did a great job to make us feel comfortable and empowered.
~Beth Scheenstra, 01/25/2018 5/5
Top Notch Service!
The staff is ALWAYS so friendly and sweet to my children. Extremely warm and professional. My kids both LOVE going to the dentist because of the stellar staff in Anacortes. Makes it a pleasant trip for this Mama!
~Erin Clark, 01/22/2018 5/5
Great Staff and Environment
I wish I went to this dentist when I was a kid, maybe I would have had better teeth.
~Jay Dudek, 01/22/2018 5/5
Very friendly and Professional.
Playhouse Dental was highly recommended to me by a lady I met at our kids’ orthodontist. I was not disappointed. They were friendly, respectful, and informative.
~Shannon Dixon, 01/19/2018 5/5
Best Dentist Visit Ever
Dr. Hill made my 4 year old son feel very comfortable and was able to get him to do a lot more then any other dentist I have ever been to. We traveled from Hawaii to come to her and she made the experience very enjoyable and affordable! I would travel back here again if my son ever needed more help with his teeth. Thanks Playhouse for being amazing!

We love Playhouse Dental! The entire experience is exceptional from the front desk to the assistants and the billing staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Dr. Hill does a great job with making the kids feel comfortable. My kids LOVE going to the dentist! Thank you for making what could be scary a wonderful experience.
~Jennifer Harju, 01/18/2018 5/5
Best Dental Experience Ever
I was so amazed at how well everything went. When they told me that they were going to attempt to clean my three year old’s teeth, I was skeptical of it happening without a huge meltdown. The staff were so great to my son and made everything a game. Not only were they able to clean his teeth, but they were also able to get X-rays! ON A THREE YEAR OLD! They must have super powers, I swear. 10/10. Best dentists ever. I just wish that they saw adults!
~Tracie Grace, 01/18/2018 5/5
This dentist office is a high quality, family friendly facility. It doesn’t even feel like you are having dental work done. They are so good at making the kids comfortable.
~Tyrah Gaines,01/18/2018 5/5
My Kids Love You Guys!
My youngest son (4) has seen Dr. Hill previously and was so excited to go back today, despite having quite a bit of work done at his last visit. My oldest son (10) and daughter (2), had their first appointments at playhouse today and also both loved it. Dr. Hill and the staff make it such a positive experience the kids were all asking when they get to go back when we left!
~Baily Dalrymple, 01/18/2018 5/5
My kids all had a great experience here. The hygienists and dentists are very accommodating and understanding of my one child who’s a bit scared of the dentist office. Looking forward to going back again with the kids They even sent a letter and stickers in the mail after our first visit!!
~Nicole C, 01/17/2018 5/5
Happy Kids Happy Mom
I’m thrilled with the care my children receive at Playhouse. Dr. Hill is great at engaging with young kids and keeping the visit stress free. Always happy with the helpful and friendly staff and the reminder system they use is awesome.
~Robin Lachnit, 01/17/2018 5/5
Unbelievably great with kids
I have yet to be able to take my 5 year old daughter here as I’ve been working each time, but my husband has taken her and is amazed at how great Dr. Hill and all the hygienists are with the kids. The way they capture our daughter’s attention and get her to relax is amazing. So glad to have found a great pediatric dentist!
~Kristy Moss, 01/15/2018 5/5
We received the best quality service here. The staff is fun & friendly. You can tell they really care about their patients.
~Tyrah Gaines, 01/05/2018 5/5
The staff was great with my daughter, who was a new patient here. She was very nervous, but even after getting two teeth pulled and some other small work, she came out saying, “I love the Dentist, they were all so nice and I can’t wait to go back.”
~Taylor L, 01/04/2018 5/5
My granddaughter loves to go to the dentist because of this place. Dr. Hill performed her surgery when she was 4 and has been her Dr. since then. The entire office personnel have treated her with gentleness and respect. I whole heartedly recommend them.
~Marilyn Blunk, 01/02/2018 5/5
Always Pleasant and Professional
Zachary loves going to the dentist!! Dr Stout is great with him!! And the dental hygienists are the greatest!!
~Sandra Oldemeyer, 01/02/2018 5/5
Dr.Stout always shows interest in any dental concerns. And gives best options for TX. The assistants are always good to my kids. I don’t even mind the drive from Mount Vernon to Anacortes. It’s worth it.
~Marie A, 12/27/2017 5/5
Daughters Dental Appointment
As usual very complete and informative. My daughter actually looks forward to her appointments.
~Clark Fields, 12/21/2017 5/5
We always feel very well taken care of. Everyone is professional and friendly with my kids and myself. I love going to playhouse!!!
~Elena Rivera-Galaz, 12/11/2017 5/5
Our visit was amazing, the staff is super friendly and very family oriented. I’m so happy to be taking my son who is three and super shy. The dentist and the assistant do everything needed to make sure his teeth are looking good. My second son will definitely be going there.
~Raylyn Shuler, 12/11/2017 5/5
We have loved going to playhouse dental. It has been a pleasure to work with them and for the most part our girls have enjoyed it as much as you can the dentist. However the last visit our 5 year old did not want to have the work done she was there for. They must have fought with her for 20 minutes before the dental assistant came out with her very aggravated with my 5 year old for not cooperating. I understand she was being difficult but they never attempted to get help from me. As soon as she saw me she said she was sorry and would let them do her extractions. At that point the dental assistant was so offended by my child they refused to work with her. She was sent home numb with no work done.
Our future suggestion from the dentist was to put her to sleep. However, I know that had I been asked to come back and talk to her our problem would have been solved very quickly and easily. I know not all my children would do well with me in the room, I know this child though, and she calms down when I am with her. I do not like the idea of being banned from the room. I also don’t like that someone who is working with kids would get so offended by a 5 year old that she was not only rude to my daughter but also to me. This doesn’t change that we love Dr.Hill and the facility all around. It was one bad experience that I hope and I am sure will be resolved during our next visit.
~Krystal Nelson, 12/06/2017 4/5
This is the first dentist office where I don’t have to fight with my daughter to go to! I refer people to playhouse dental all the time!!
~Melinda Tolar, 12/01/2017 5/5
High quality service and professional and friendly
This was an amazing experience. The dental assistant was nice and the dentist was amazing, and they speak my language.
~Jazmin Suarez, 11/28/2017 5/5
This was an amazing experience. The dental assistant was nice and the dentist was amazing.
~Lidia Faulk, 11/27/2017 5/5
Great dental office
My kids were worried about going to a new dentist when we arrived in Oak Harbor about a year ago because they had been with their old dentist for about 7 years and loved them. We have had 3 appointments at this clinic and each visit has been a very pleasant one. Everyone in the office seems to genuinely love their job and care about the patients. My kids are excited to go to each appointment and always come out with a smile. I have highly recommended and will continue to recommend this office to friends looking for a caring and trustworthy place to take their kiddos.
~Rachelle Lankhorst, 11/23/2017 5/5
My Playhouse Dental Short Story
I was a bit reluctant to let my 2-year-old go to the back while I waited in the waiting room. She is shy & doesn’t do well with strangers. The dental assistant assured me that she would be just fine & if she wasn’t, they would come get me. I sat & waited… The next thing I knew she came walking out, happy-go-lucky with her balloon, sticker & goody bag. She did GREAT!!! I was so relieved! She keeps asking to go back like everyday. I’m so impressed.
~Terra Baker, 11/22/2017 5/5
High quality service
Fast and friendly. Everyone is nice and respectful.
~Crystal Franks, 11/16/2017 5/5
Dr Hill & her staff are great
Thank you for today. You guys did a great job. Kids actually like going to the dentist. Gentleman at the front desk (his name escapes me) is wonderful at getting people checked in & always has a great attitude.
~Kathrine Morris, 11/16/2017 5/5
Loving, caring, very kid friendly
Both my kids have had bad experiences with a different dentist office. My kids walked in and felt instantly relaxed and welcomed. My son would freak about having to go. I spoke to my son before hand explained that this place is different and to open his mind to the place. Both him and his sister came out with smiles and are looking forward to their next appointment.
~Briana Day, 11/16/2017 5/5
Fantastic staff, skilled Dentist, beautiful office
Our appointment was for a crown and filling and I had a very nervous and emotional six year old. The staff was amazing with her and they were able to do the work that needed to be done. She is not nervous at all about her next appointment. Best pediatric dentist we have seen!
~Jen Leviere, 11/16/2017 5/5
Great dental clinic
We had a wonderful experience at the clinic. Everybody was kind with a great approach to young children. My child didn’t want to leave the office! I would highly recommend this dental clinic.
~Maria Fairbank, 11/16/2017 5/5
High quality of service
Fast and punctual. The doctors and assistants are great and always keep you informed of the procedures.
~Bryan Craig, 11/14/2017 5/5
Such a lovely and kind environment for my 3 year old. They spoke directly to her and made her feel very comfortable. The Anacortes office is beautiful, clean and provides little patients with a warm, caring environment. Where was this place when I was a child?
~Jackie Bornemann, 11/07/2017 5/5
Professional yet friendly
My daughter just had her cleaning done and the service was great. They have made it so she does not hate going to the dentist, even after having to get a temporary crown. We are very thankful to have such a great children’s dentist nearby!
~Michelle Liles, 11/06/2017 5/5
A Truly Exceptional Experience
We recently moved to Anacortes from California and had been preparing our daughter for braces there. Because of our previous visits to other dentists, we’ve come to expect a certain routine. We can certainly say after visiting Playhouse Dental all of those previous experiences have been blown away. Patient, kind, generous, we were in no way treated like a number. They cared about our daughter and her needs above everything else. We have certainly been spoiled by Dr. Stout and the entire Playhouse Dental staff!!! Keep up the amazing work!
~Ben Taylor, 11/01/2017 5/5
I love all the employees. My son had a great time for it being his first and they made all feel so comfortable!
~Katrina Vu, 10/30/2017 5/5
Love how everyone was smiling and nice. I love a good customer service!
~Stevie Shavers, 10/25/2017 5/5
I literally can’t say this enough – if you haven’t taken your child to Play House dental, you should! They are so fantastic with children AND Parents. Everyone from the front desk guy, to the dentist are so patient, kind and playful. They really made my sweet girl feel comfortable! We will be going there until she turns 18, without a doubt.
~Becca Davis, 10/25/2017 5/5
#1 Choice Dentist for my kids.
Smiles, Friendliness, Cleanliness and Knowledgeable is what we always experience from Playhouse Dental Clinic. That makes us come back, time and time again. Thank you Dr. Stout & staff.

I love the staff they’re very nice over all, I give Playhouse Dental a 120% for everything they do. I recommend this dentist, very great.
~Sinthia Arreola, 10/18/2017 5/5
Dr. Hill and her crew are professional and friendly!
We switched to Dr. Hill once she opened her new office in Anacortes simply because her reputation among the locals is incredible. Her fantastic reputation is well deserved and was very evident in my short encounter with her as she cleaned my son’s teeth and gave me the great news that he does not need braces. She has a team of friendly and kind people working with her and everyone seemed genuine and honest.
~Megan Schorr, 10/17/2017 5/5
Great place for children to interact with dental professionals. The environment is well suited for children, and staff goes above and beyond to make them feel comfortable.
~Ryan Carroll, 10/17/2017 5/5
Both dentists have been amazing with my son. Never have a bad experience when we are there.
~Amanda Grove, 10/16/2017 5/5
My child is actually excited to go to this dentist office. The video games don’t hurt that at all.
~Tanya Johnson, 10/16/2017 5/5

Dr. Hill and staff collaborate with parents and patients. Love the way we all come to a consensus in the best path for dental care. Thanks for the dental education; we appreciate it!!
~ Diane Eastman, 10/11/2017 5/5
As a kid, I remember my trips to the dentist and I feel like my son’s trip today blew mine out of the water! Just awesome!
~B H, 10/10/2017 5/5
Friendly, thoughtful care!
I am grateful for the genuine, caring team at Playhouse Dental. Dr. Stout goes out of his way to remember details of my daughter’s life and has to be one of the kindest human beings on this earth. The staff at Playhouse Dental have also done a wonderful job easing + encouraging my daughter’s independence + comfort by always treating her with respect + talking with her openly about what they are doing, their findings, etc. Always a very positive experience + Sierra at the front desk provides a warm + friendly welcoming!
~L H, 10/09/2017 5/5
I worked for Playhouse Dental for many years! I became a stay at home mom, but miss this staff so so much! They are so great with kids! I would recommend them to everyone!
~Caycee Ozaki, 10/05/2017 5/5
My kids recently had the pleasure of seeing Dr Hill. She did an extraction today on my daughter and I couldn’t be happier, as a parent, with how amazing she is with her. My daughter has requested to only see Dr Hill form now on!
~Deborah Garcia, 10/05/2017 5/5
Best children’s dentist experience.
~Kim Jordan, 10/05/2017 5/5
Wonderful with kids
I’ve taken the kids to other dentists, this is where they will go from now on. Great people , genuinely caring staff.
~Bill Carroll, 10/04/2017 5/5
First time taking my almost 3 yr old to the dentist and based on how well Dr. visits have gone, let’s just say I was less than excited. Playhouse dental was amazing and everyone is so nice and helpful.
~Julia H, 10/03/2017 5/5
First time visit + Anxious 4-year-old = Success!!
We had a lovely time at Playhouse Dental, despite my anxious son’s dislike of all doctors. I have no idea what spurred his fear of doctor and dentist appointments, but it is very scary for him. He has been known to cry and cower and refuse to let anyone touch or examine him, making me wonder why I even bothered making the appointment in the first place. Our experience here was completely different and much, much better than our experience at our previous dentist. The front office was calm and not congested. We were greeted with a smile and a high-five.
My son had fun playing with the toys and a video game before his appointment (which was only a few minute wait). We were taken to a smaller waiting room full of books and puzzles for him to explore, while the hygienist asked me for a brief patient history and if there was anything I was concerned about. Then we were led down the hall and he was directed to sit in the exam chair while I sat close by.
The hygienist introduced each instrument to him and even let him hold one. He got to wear some fun sunglasses to shade his eyes and he did pretty well during the entire exam. When he started to cry and had had enough, she smiled and said, “Okay, we’ll do the rest next time!” After a few minutes we got to meet the dentist and she played a fun balloon glove game to calm his nerves. It did the trick! She then “counted his teeth” and did an exam. It was a very pleasant, reassuring experience. We left with a balloon, some stickers, a new toothbrush and a goody-bag. He’s looking forward to going back in a couple of weeks to show his big sis around
~Tiffany Burdette, 09/26/2017 5/5
This place is amazing, from the moment I walked into this office to the moment I left, my daughters 1st check up went amazing she wasn’t scared she was excited and now is even more excited about brushing her teeth.
~Jenny Cowan, 09/21/2017 5/5
Great Quality Service and friendly environment
Today my 5 y/o came in for a routine cleaning and it was one of their themed days where they were dressed as pirates which was super fun. My daughter gets anxious when going to the pediatric doctor’s office but is always excited to go see the dentist! I put that credit on this office and their extraordinary staff!
~Cassandra Ching, 09/21/2017 5/5
Excellent Care and attention
Everyone was not only professional but very friendly and put us at ease. My 3 year old did pretty well, the Dentist and assistant were wonderful and patient. Great bedside manner – I watched my shy toddler cooperate willingly with her dental exam. Thank you!
~Dana Aldis, 09/20/2017 5/5
~Brenda Zumwalt, 09/19/2017 5/5
The best I could have asked for
After a horrendous experience at a different establishment, coming to playhouse dental was more than I could have even wanted for my son. Everyone was so patient. They talked to him like a person instead of talking to me and leaving him out completely. I love the open atmosphere of the examine room. Everything was super impressive and my son actually had fun!
~Joanna Uribe, 09/18/2017 5/5
Extremely personable, friendly, and professional
My son has pretty high anxiety when it comes to the dentist, the staff at Playhouse Dental went above and beyond to make him comfortable. They are extremely patient and friendly. They treat you like family, which is great for my family!!
~Erin Croucher, 09/15/2017 5/5
Excellent job, happy mom
I am very happy with what was done, and how they handled comforting my baby, along with me while waiting. Awesome employees. Would definitely recommend them.
~Courtney Squiemphen, 09/15/2017 5/5
Excellent quality of service, friendly and fun
Fun environment, friendly staff that goes above and beyond to help kids feel more at ease and to help the busy mom of four whose husband is deployed! I absolutely loved Dr Hill’s “bedside manner” with each of my children!
~Candace Gibbons, 09/14/2017 5/5
My youngest son had his first Dentist appointment today and I was dreading it but the entire staff made it fun, fast, and not stressful! I can’t wait for my 2 oldest boys to go next week! I would recommend this dentist to anyone with kids!
~Amanda Carter, 09/14/2017 5/5
High quality service!
I was highly impressed how dedicated the whole staff was able to accommodate, provide high quality service and attention to both of the patients I brought in and myself. They did it in a speedy, thorough and professional manner all while keeping it fun. Super clean and friendly. My kids loved it!
~Esmeralda M, 09/07/2017 5/5
Today was my daughters 1st time to the dentist. It was such a great experience for her. Everyone was so friendly and made her feel so comfortable. I was so impressed. Friendly staff, very clean and so fun for the kiddos!
~Melissa Brancheau, 09/07/2017 5/5
Great experience for my 23 month old
My daughter just had her first ever dental appointment, she is very shy so I was worried. The dentist and staff were great! The dentist came in and sat down to chat with us before jumping right in. He took his time and let my daughter get comfortable. He showed her the tooth brush and tools and was very kind and gentle. She left with a balloon that she wouldn’t put down for the rest of the day. It was a great first visit.
~Meagan Alder, 08/25/2017 5/5
All smiles here!
From the moment you walk into playhouse dental, the staff is warm and welcoming. My son was at such ease during his appointment. On the way home he told me he wants to be a dentist when he grows up. He says he can’t wait to go back!
~Courtney Wellentin, 08/24/2017 5/5
Professional, Prompt, and Very Kid-Friendly
Wonderful initial dental visit for my stranger-shy 2 year old. The visit was relaxed, Dr. Stout put her at ease, she didn’t get upset in the least. The facility was very kid-friendly. All staff were a pleasure to interact with; would definitely recommend to friends/family.
~Tshawnda Lollis, 08/22/2017 5/5
A wonderful experience
The dental hygienist and dentist were fantastic with both of my children. The clinic allowed me to combined their appointments into one for my convenience. They were friendly and very understanding with my 2 1/2 year old and 1 year old. I would highly recommend them.
~Sarah O’Connell, 08/17/2017 5/5

~Amy Dymond, 08/10/2017 5/5
Military Mom in awe!
I absolutely love this dental office! everyone who works here is dedicated to making it a great, and positive environment for ALL kids. Especially those who have trouble with the dentist. When I was younger we just saw the family dentist like everyone else and there was nothing cool o inviting about it, so of course we didn’t want to go! my girls find it exciting and treat it like a healthy competition to see if they can leave with “perfect marks”.
~Kristie Scheidemantel, 08/09/2017 5/5
Highly recommend Playhouse Dental
High quality service from front desk to hygienists to the dentists themselves, compassionate for every patient, provide exceptional education on concerns found, what would recommend to assist correct and how to prevent further problems, beautiful office and very kid friendly!!
~Stacey Pestar, 08/08/2017 5/5
Recent Playhouse dental visit
Once again, my son’s dental visit was a positive one. His oral hygiene issues were addressed with several alternatives acceptable for a teen. The whole vibe of the Anacortes office is positive and refreshing. Thank you everyone.
~Catherine Houck, 08/07/2017 5/5
The Perfect Pediatric Dental Experience
The cheery, competent support staff are great with kids and Dr. Stout is the best. He has a great bedside manner with parents and kids. This staff managed to bring my child from being too scared to get a cleaning all the way to being a happy, healthy patient with little fear. It’s fun going to appointments here!
~Maria Mitchell, 08/06/2017 5/5
We’ve been taking our 4 children here for about 12 years. This office is simply the best! Everyone who works here is professional, kind, & totally willing to follow the child’s lead. The office has a wonderful, positive atmosphere, my kids love going to the dentist! Highly highly recommend Playhouse Dental!!
~ Jessica M, 08/03/2017 5/5
I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Thank you for all your patience. You all truly have a gift working with kids. Thank you!
~ Danielle B, 07/31/2017 5/5
High quality! Every employee was really friendly and inviting.
My daughter had such a wonderful time as she always does at this dental clinic. She was pretty traumatized with her first dentist (not at play house), but playhouse was so inviting at the end of our last visit she did not want to leave!
~ Keena Manglona, 07/28/2017 5/5
I loved how involved they let me be with all 3 of my kids appointments, and how clearly everything was explained to me. All the staff were so kind to me, and the kids. It was easy and painless, Thank you!
~ Candace Honeycutt, 07/26/2017 5/5
I think it’s a great dentist, it was my daughter first dentist appointment and they made sure she was comfortable and she did really well , all the staff members are very nice. All in all it seems like a great dentist and I would recommend them to anyone I know looking for a dentist!
~ Samantha Blanton, 07/24/2017 5/5
Ideal Dental Care for Kids
This was our first visit to Playhouse Dental, and we were very impressed. The front desk staff were friendly and inviting. The dental assistant was very informative and walked us through what to expect and prepared us for the Doctor’s visit.
When Dr. Hill arrived, I was so impressed with the way she handled my two year old daughter. The environment was very comfortable and my daughter was able to be curious and feisty, and still receive a successful exam. I didn’t know what to expect when I walked into the building, but as we left, I knew we’d found the best care we could ask for. I know my daughter will grow to look forward to her future visits!
~ Katie M, 07/21/2017 5/5
Love this place my baby has never been hurt and he hasn’t ever been a drain and all of his appointments have been great. Accept the last time I went in they almost got my son and another boy mixed up and I had a slight panic attack cause they told me they were going to put him under, when we came for a simple cleaning…they should start asking for birthdays first thing. We also forgot to put the sticker on the wall that’s his favorite part.
~ Jesse Yocum, 07/19/2017 4/5
Everyone was very friendly and professional, we got an appointment quickly, the dentist was great and walked me through everything that was going on with my child’s teeth, and we were out in no time.
~ Shannon White, 07/12/2017 5/5
Amazing per usual!
As always, all the staff were so sweet and friendly with myself and my children. Super professional and and extra caring. My children LOVE going to the dentist because of the great atmosphere at Playhouse Dental in Anacortes.
~ Erin Clark, 07/11/2017 5/5
Wonderful first time cleaning
We love Playhouse Dental! All three of my kids had an appointment for a cleaning today, and it was my three year old daughter’s first one. The staff did a great job warming her up to it and she did really well. The dentist explained what she needed for follow-up care and put my mind at ease.
~ Clarice O’Brien, 07/07/2017 5/5
Great with kids, clean, friendly friendly friendly
Absolutely LOVE this place! I can’t imagine actually ENJOYING a trip to the dentist. My daughter fell and injured her mouth, and so that led us to her first dentist appointment. They were so great with her, talked to her, included her. There were stuffed animals for comfort, crayons and pages to color on while she waited. She got stickers and a balloon at the end of her visit, and also a card in the mail a few days later written colorfully with little doodles to my daughter telling her how great she did, and hoping her mouth felt better.
Then 2 weeks later we went in for a follow up, and her cleaning, which was another great experience. Both times she had x rays done. Everyone we interacted with was just very pleasant. Overall a great experience, and when your child says how excited they are to go to the dentist, you know they’re doing something good! The whole facility is kid friendly, and still clean. It doesn’t feel like the scary dentist office I went to as a child.
~ Kristina Currier, 07/06/2017 5/5
Professional, efficient, and easy to work with.
My children can be very stubborn, and the staff have always been easy to work with and understanding. They have always maintained the level of professionalism that I prefer while still being fun for my children. They did exactly what they said they were gonna do, and I was informed the whole way. They encourage independence with my children that they appreciate. Both offices are well maintained, and there is always something to entertain the kids while they wait.
~ Meghan Richey, 06/30/2017 5/5
Patient and loving
~ Julia Savell, 06/30/2017 5/5
Super friendly, the dentist isn’t every kids favorite but they try to put your kid at ease. Great experience. Also, facility is kid friendly, clean & inviting.
~ April Nault, 06/28/2017 5/5
Amazing service Dr. Hill is amazing she listened to my concerns. Very nice place, my boys enjoyed their visit today
~ Amy Dymond, 06/28/2017 5/5
Professional and So friendly
I was worried that my son would be scared since this was his first trip to the dentist. They made him feel comfortable and safe with every tool that they used. He wasn’t scared at all. He’s actually excited to go back. I will refer all the other spouses that are transferring here to you guys! I couldn’t have been more pleased!
~ Amber Taylor, 06/26/2017 5/5
Wonderful with children
I am very grateful to the people who work here, they are amazing with my kids. They are knowledgeable and honest. I have had my kids here for the last 7 years and have never been disappointed.
~ Cassandra Hert, 06/08/2017 5/5
I was very worried on how my daughter would do, but everyone at Playhouse Dental was so very kind. My daughter was well cared for, and we both left happy. The team as a whole work well and really do care for the patients.

I will continue to rate this business 5 stars!
This is my second time going to playhouse and my second review. The staff is so wonderful. From the moment we stepped into the Anacortes office we felt at home. My daughter had to be put under today and I was freaking out but they took care of her and made me feel better too! Such a wonderful experience for both my daughter and I. Will always recommend!!

Amazing care of my little one today.
My little guy had to have a little procedure today which I was nervous for. It was over in 20 min and he came out with a smile, a balloon and a sticker. Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my kiddos!
~ Nicole Coleman, 05/30/2017 5/5
Awesome place, people and work!!!
~ Amy Cruz, 05/25/2017 5/5
Wonderful dentist. They go above and beyond to make sure the kids are comfortable.
~ Lisa L, 05/24/2017 5/5
Wonderful and amazing!
These professionals go above and beyond what any dental establishment has ever done for us. Hands down the best care my son has ever received! Thank you for all that you do!
~ Katie Kazmierczak, 05/23/2017 5/5
Made my child feel very comfortable.
~ Lea Parsley, 05/22/2017 5/5
Professional, Good with my children, Easy to understand
My kids appointment time was the same time, so I went back with my 2 year old while my 4 year old went back alone. The wait was not long and my kids were entertained. They were quick and efficient. My daughter needs some extra work and they were very clear with the options and what it would entail. My daughter is hard to get to cooperate usually, yet she did not fuss at all. I would definitely recommend them.
~ Meghan Richey, 05/16/2017 5/5
Love the People and the care they give!

Baby’s first visit
The entire staff is incredibly nice. Everyone was very patient, polite, and professional. I felt 100% at ease with them giving care to my daughter.
~ Erin Kays, 05/15/2017 5/5
High Quality Service
Playhouse dental is wonderful! It was my sons first dentist appointment and they were very interactive and patient with him. They were extremely friendly and made our first trip fun.
~ Emily Holt, 05/08/2017 5/5
Such a great place
My son went in to have a baby tooth pulled. He was not looking forward to it, but the staff really put him at ease. Also, when the dentist looked, he said it wasn’t necessary yet and we could wait to see if the tooth will loosen some more and come out on it’s own. He also said that the one next to it could need to be pulled as well if it won’t come out on it’s own (the adult teeth are coming in behind the baby teeth), so he’d rather pull them at the same time if it needs to be done at all. I appreciated his caution and expertise.
~ Karis Mills, 05/08/2017 5/5
Excellent and friendly staff, very professional
Today was our daughters first experience having gas and being numbed. Everything was awesome and the staff was great. We love Playhouse dental, thank you!
~ Taran Graham, 05/08/2017 5/5
Professional and friendly
Amazing staff. Today was our first day there. They made my 3 year old feel completely comfortable. I will highly recommend it to everyone.
~ Kuulei Gomes, 05/03/2017 5/5
So Kind, Friendly and Professional!
All the staff was extremely attentive to both of my children, making them feel comfortable and cared for. Super clean and professional environment!! The balloons to go made my kids day!
~ Erin Clark, 05/01/2017 5/5
I could not be more thankful for the doctors and staff at Playhouse Dental. They are all so caring and professional. Most importantly, they are never condescending like many dentists I have dealt with in the past.
~ Shaunie Mcleod, 04/26/2017 5/5
Older Kids Love It Too
My 15 year old is comfortable taking the short walk and checking herself through the whole process when the parents have to work. She trusts the assistants and hygienists. Always has a great experience.
~ Danielle Arnett, 04/21/2017 5/5
I would like to amend my previous review. My son had overheard a hygienist speaking negatively about another patient. After submitting my review, I received a very genuine and heartfelt phone call from our dentist apologizing for and wanting more information about our experience so that he could address any issues with his team. I am very impressed that he went to such lengths in response to my review. We look forward to our next visit at Playhouse Dental. Highly recommend.
~ Kelly F, 04/19/2017 5/5
High quality service, clean office, but gossiping about patients
Front desk staff was kind. Hygienist and dentist were professional and knowledgeable. The office is very child friendly. However, my child overheard another hygienist gossiping and saying negative remarks about another patient and his family that were in the building.
~ Kelly F, 04/19/2017 4/5
Great with my son
They took time to explain everything to my son and helped him stay calm.
~ Melissa Pilcher, 04/19/2017 5/5
BEST OFFICE EVER!
Bringing in three kids at once could not have ran more smoothly! The assistants worked well with each kid, while the others had plenty of fun activities to keep them busy. But most importantly, Dr.Hill was so AMAZING with each child. The way she interacts with children provides comfort not only for the children, but for the parents!
~ Vanessa Cross, 04/18/2017 5/5
My girls beg to GO to the dentist!
Playhouse Dental is an amazing dental office for kids! I wish they were around when I was young. My girls love going to the dentist. They will countdown the days until their next visit and tell me all about preventing sugar bugs in the mean time. They are establishing great habits thanks to all of the fun. Dr. Hill is great with kids and parents. She has wonderful pointers that always help me through the current struggle. The Anacortes office itself is fantastic too–a must see!
~ Lindsey Herrick, 04/18/2017 5/5
Love, Love, Love
Our visit at Playhouse Dental from the moment we stepped inside till we left was filled with fun, smiles and professionalism. We brought our 2 year old in today for his first dental visit. Dr. Hill and her team took their time with William, making him smile- answering his questions and even making him forget he was at the dentist. He loved it and left smiling and showing everyone his new toothbrush.. keep up the GREAT WORK. It is really all about the patient, thank you!
~ Brandy Bowen 04/17/2017 5/5
Quick and Professional Service
I was especially impressed with how smoothly the office ran. Everyone knew their job and was attentive. So many people came in and out of the room to do their portion of the work and everything worked so smoothly. The staff members were great with my child and made him feel safe. When he got antsy, they were so quick to pop out the tablet and get the TV on for him. They used lots of diversion tactics and got everything he needed done very quickly. I was very impressed by the quality of service here.
~ Sarah Vawter, 04/12/2017 5/5
Professional and Friendly
My 2 year old twins were seen today for their first dentist visit. I was so worried and my girls were all over the place. The front desk gentleman was super nice and helped me get all the paperwork done without complaint. He was super patient while I was distracted. The lady who did our “intake” was polite and patient as well. The Dentist was super gentle, nice and quick. He answered lots of my questions before I could ask them and the whole visit was over before I knew it. Thank you to the staff who gave balloons and tooth brushed when the visit was over. My older son also goes to this dentist and I am always happy with the overall cleanliness of the office, the staff and the professionalism of the staff.
~ Lauren Davis, 04/11/2017 5/5
I was very happy with the entire staff! They made my 7 year old daughter feel very comfortable and explained everything to her in a way she could understand. I was very thankful for that.
~ Holly Pilz, 04/11/2017 5/5
It was a great experience
My boys (6 and 1 1/2) both had a good time. My 6 year old was fearful, but the assistant and dentist both put him at ease and he actually enjoyed his examination. They were both very helpful, and I am so relieved to have a local dentist we look forward to seeing.
~ Karis Mills, 04/10/2017 5/5
Fast, Friendly, Attentive
Playhouse made my son feel comfortable in a situation that would have normally scared him. The staff was friendly and attentive to his reactions when he began to get anxious. Amazing job!
~ Sam Daniel, 04/10/2017 5/5
Best Dental experience ever!
I have brought my two children to Playhouse Dental (Anacortes) 4 times now, and we love it! We don’t feel like it’s a chore, we look forward to it. When I recommend it to friends I say, “It’s like a Disney experience-dentist style”! Every step of the way is well thought out by staff to give children AND parents the best, most stress-free, experience possible. From the warm toys and books filled waiting room, right to the end with balloons and easy next-appointment-setting goodbye’s. The staff is personable and friendly, and well trained, not just in their craft of cleaning little teeth, but also in their people skills of dealing with children and their parents. We feel so blessed to have Playhouse Dental in our little Community.
~ Joy Moore-Salmon, 04/10/2017 5/5

Dr. Stout and his staff are very sweet and friendly people!! My daughter is usually scared of all medical offices and they put her at ease almost immediately, she barely cried at all!!
~ Ashley Trobaugh, 03/30/2017 5/5
Everyone was so friendly and thorough, my kids had a great experience!
~ Latasha Roldan 03/23/2017 5/5
Amazing friendly staff!
I cannot believe how patient they are with my toddler when we go in. My son asks if we can come again and again! I do not think this is normal for a child to say about a dental office. So we will be going back in 6 months with big smiles on our face.
~ Nicole Haun 03/22/2017 5/5
My Kids Love Going to the Dentist!
We absolutely love going to Playhouse dental. All of the staff members are so wonderful with the kids yet they are extremely professional. They have fun while getting their teeth cleaned and are well taken care of.
~ Tanya Hunsaker 03/18/2017 5/5
Doc and Staff are Awesome.
Took care of my sons immediate dental needs! They treated him like family rather than a patient! Thank you all for taking care of my son!
~ Veronica Avila 03/17/2017 5/5
My child(ren) have been attending since 2003. They have always had friendly caring staff. They are professional and make the kids feel at ease. Great first dentist for kids!!

~ Kristin Duncan 03/14/20175/5
Caring, Professional and Very Child Friendly
This was my son’s first real dentist experience and while I prepared him for it as best I could and had faith that he would do well, the experience was made all the more positive by the skill and fluidity of the staff here. I am so relieved to know that I have found the right dentist for my son. Thank you.
~ Diana Maynard 03/13/2017 5/5
Great Service and Staff
It’s great to know that when I bring my kids (ages 9, 7 and 3) to Playhouse Dental they’ll be taken great care of and come away with smiling faces. My 3 year old just had her first check up and cleaning in the “big chair” and did great! The dental assistant was so patient with her and made her feel comfortable right away. Dr. Stout is friendly and great with the kids and good about explaining what is going on with their teeth to the parent. I appreciate that he waits and watches a tooth to see if a cavity will develop instead of filling every possible place right away; like some other dentists. I am completely satisfied with their high level of service and the kids don’t hate the dentist, so I’m happy!
~ Rebecca Swan 03/13/2017 5/5
My kids are excited about the going to the dentist because every single person there makes it fun.
~ Patricia Volpe 03/06/2017 5/5
So Good With Kids!
My 5 year old had his first cavity, Kate and the assistant were FANTASTIC at talking him through it, explaining everything and skilled at numbing him up without using laughing gas (he only felt a pinch and never saw the needle) – he had a wonderful experience.
Dr. Hill was efficient and pleasant. They all worked together like clockwork. They even let him watch the whole process with a mirror – which he was totally into. And, of course, he got to play a video game afterwards – which he was really looking forward to. I love that they let parents come back and stay with the children. My last dentist I had to practically force my way in the back – what do they have to hide? So glad we found Playhouse dental.
~ Heather Hutchinson 02/15/2017 5/5
Great With Children!
Upon arriving to this office for the first time ever based on recommendations from friends, I was impressed by the environment they provided. It was warm and cozy, aesthetically pleasing for children and clean. The woman at the front desk was very welcoming and her trainee seemed very warm herself. Check in was quick, and the staff were excellent with accommodating my toddler in what was previously nerve-wracking, making it a fun experience for her. I realize that I’m writing under the oak Harbor location but we visited the Anacortes location this morning. I loved it, my daughter loved it, and her dad even gives a huge thumbs up for the retro games they have next to the patient chairs.
~ Bekah Romero 02/22/2017 5/5
Professional and Child Friendly
My son (2 1/2) loves everything about this office. It’s new, clean, large stuffed animals and new/clean toys everywhere. The staff is amazing at speaking to young children and making them feel excited and comfortable there. The dentist we saw was amazing. They also blow them up a helium balloon when everything is over which made my child happy the entire day!
~ Andrea Price 02/21/2017 5/5
We always have a wonderful experience here! Everyone is very patient and understanding with my daughter who has some anxiety about going to the dentist. Thank you for being so caring!

Great with scared children
The staff are so patient with any child that has dental fears. My children can’t wait for their next appointments.
~ By Krystal Cooley 02/07/2017 5/5
Best first dental experience I could have asked for!
I wasn’t looking forward to taking my three year old son to his first dental appointment because he’s had a rough time at doctors visits, hair cutting appointments and I was sure this was going to be the same. The staff at Playhouse was SO friendly and honestly, I don’t think they even gave my son time to get nervous! The facility was clean, kid friendly and a place that even I wanted to hang out at. Our hygienist, Janet explained everything to my son before she did it, showing him on her hands, then his hands, then asking if she could proceed. During the two times she stepped away to set up other things, she had my son go over and play pac-man for a minute. When it was time for Dr. Stout to come over and do his exam, my son was at ease. The only downfall of the experience was that my son didn’t want to leave He’s looking forward to his next appointment in 6 months!
~ By Jill Bysegger 02/01/2017 5/5
My daughter loves this place. The staff are very friendly and helped with her anxiety.
~ By Mindy Eddy 01/31/2017 5/5
I was worried my 3 year old would leave the dentist hating it BUT he actually didn’t want to leave! He made friends with the dentist assistant and Dr. Hill and loved all the toys and books they had. The environment was great! Definitely the place for kids! I loved the office, the staff and Dr. Hill. Thank you for making it fun and especially not scary! My son already can’t wait to go back.
~ By Amalis Pearson 01/31/2017 5/5
Professional and fun!
We were lucky that it was national bubble wrap day! Office was friendly and fun
~ By L Hayworth 01/30/2017 5/5
Wonderful! Friendly! Professional!
Janet was amazing with my 4 year old daughter, enthusiastic and positive and kind. Dr. Stout is professional, friendly and thorough. It was clear that both Janet and Dr. Stout truly care and make a personal connection to their patients. As a parent, I was welcome to accompany my daughter back to the dental chair for her exam, I like having that option. The building is beautiful, full of light and fun. We had a great experience and look forward to many years of care from the team at Playhouse.
~ By Cindy Ristow 01/30/2017 5/5
More than satisfied
My 4 year old had a good amount of work done and both him and I were nervous about it. The staff was amazing and very empathetic to our worries, they never made me feel silly about being emotional and they cared for both my son and I very professionally. His teeth look amazing and I am so thankful that Playhouse Dental was recommended to me by several parents at my son’s daycare. Thank you so much, I couldn’t be happier with the way we were treated and the results. I will highly recommend Playhouse Dental.
~ By Malorey Garcia 01/29/2017 5/5

My son had a great experience
I appreciated the time, care and personal attention we received. We felt cared for throughout our time at the clinic, including getting some dental work done. My son felt listened to and knew he was made as comfortable as possible. It was great to have the combination of friendly smiles and competence, and the kids were thrilled to receive a sparkly helium balloon as we left. Playhouse Dental definitely make an effort to make kids feel welcome and comfortable getting dental care. Thank you!
~ By Meredith Griffith 01/26/2017 5/5
Love this place!
I am grateful my children are able to go to a dentist office where they are treated with a lot of kindness and patience, and where any questions I have are readily answered. The whole staff is great -especially Dr. Hill, whom I wish we could take home with us!!!! Would definitely recommend bringing children here for their visit.

Excellent care and restorative work
We had a dental emergency with my daughter on a Sunday evening, and Dr Hill made herself available to see us first this Monday after returning an after hours phone call. The ladies that worked on my daughter’s front tooth today did an AMAZING job. No one would know she broke her front tooth off last night and her smile is actually prettier than it was before!

The best professional place for pediatric dental work!
My son had a traumatic experience at his dentist. It sent us searching for a place that welcomes kids, provides exceptional work, and has a positive outlook on dental health. We found all those things plus more at playhouse dental. My son is excited to brush his teeth and go to the dentist! I would call that a win-win!
