PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY 

This practice is based on the premise that prevention is the key to long term oral health care.  The goal is to provide you with current, state of the art dental evaluations and treatment in a manner which is both caring and comfortable for you.  It is our firm belief that the better you understand your dental condition, the more successful your dental treatment will be.  As a result, we continuously strive to provide comprehensive patient education.  We encourage questions and suggestions.

INITIAL VISIT

The initial visit is designed to be the time for the patient and doctor to discuss the patient’s medical and dental histories, interpret radiographic findings and clinically diagnose any pathology.  We believe this is a time where the patient can voice his/her expectations.  We, as a dental team, also use this time to let you know how we function.

FAMILY TREATMENT

TESTIMONIALS

What Patients Are Saying

Hands down the best dentist office I've ever been to! Dr. Wilkinson does a phenomenal job. He always listens to me and answers my questions. I've been terrified of the dentist for as long as I can recall, but I always end up leaving laughing and smiling. Also, the staff and hygienists are great! Courteous, caring, and always there to help!

Jess Y.

Fantastic service and very friendly staff. My son was so scared to go to the dentist and Dr. Ekdahl and his “magic tools” put my son right at ease, as did Kim. My son now has no fear of the dentist and actually is excited to go. Thank you Dr. Ekdahl & Assistant Kim!

Jessica H.

Dr. Chris and all the staff are awesome! My 2 year old daughter had her first dentist appointment today. Mrs. Colleen (dental hygienist) did an AWESOME job with Vera by keeping her calm and counting her teeth. She got her to keep her mouth open! Vera was so excited about the prizes she got for being a good patient. Thank you Peninsula Family for being so good to us!

Linnea S.

For once in my life I had a dental experience that wasn't just "not bad" but actually a very pleasant experience. Dr. Ekdahl does an incredibly good dental work, is highly professional, and takes the time to get to know you and see how you're doing. The same goes for all the staff at Peninsula Dentistry.

Jeremy C.

Had always had a "fear" of dentists. Once I started seeing Dr Wilkinson (many years ago) the fear went away. I have recommended him to many people who feel the same way. Now my "fear" is my teeth will outlast his years of practice so that's where I hope Dr Ekdahl can step in!! The staff has always been top notch and welcoming!

Mary A.

I have been going to Dr. Wilkinson for at least 15 yrs. Wouldn't go anywhere else. He is soothing and makes you feel very secure and knows what he is doing. I vote 100 plus for his care and treatment
