Meet Dr. Blanchard
Your Bellevue family dentist since 1987.
Advocate for True Family Dentistry
In 1987, Dr. Blanchard opened his Bellevue family dentistry office in Factoria, only a few miles away from where he grew up and overlooking Newport High School, where his wife went to school. From the very beginning, he grew his practice based on the principles of honesty and good ethics to create personable relationships with his patients.
‘‘Dentistry has been the perfect fit for me. It blends my interest in science with my appreciation for art, satisfies my creative juices, and rewards me daily with incredible relationships.’’
Our integrity is foremost in our care for our patients. By listening to your needs and giving you our time and attention, we hope to build a long and lasting relationship with you and your family.
Dr. Blanchard's Journey to Dentistry
While in high school, Dr. Blanchard developed a keen interest in the sciences and a knack for taking things apart and putting them back together, with a curiosity for understanding how various things work. He comes from a family of engineers, artists, and designers. Recognizing this skill set, Dr. Blanchard’s childhood dentist and family friend suggested he look into the dental profession as a possible career path.
Dr. Blanchard graduated from the University of Washington, earning both his undergraduate degree and his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree there. Both he and his wife grew up just a few miles from the office and enjoy a deep connection to the area.
Dr. Blanchard opened his practice in 1987, developing the mission to provide the best dental care in a relaxed, yet professional environment. As a result, he prides himself on establishing long-term relationships with his patients and feels so fortunate to have been able to care for four generations of several families. His dedication is recognized by being selected as one of Seattle Met's Top Dentists for several years running.
