My goal is to offer each of our patients here on Bainbridge Island the personalized dental care and advice you would expect for a loved one. Your smile is one of your most important assets and should last a lifetime. Paramount to having and maintaining a healthy smile is a proper diagnosis and treatment options that make sense not only for the short-term but for years to come.
I look at dentistry as a journey, not a race. With this in mind, we work carefully with you to achieve your dental goal and maintain your optimal dental health. Whether your intent is simply maintenance or full-mouth rehabilitation with implants, we look forward to assisting you with all your dental needs.
We welcome you to our dental family. We will keep you smiling for a lifetime.
Todd H. Adams, DDS.
Todd was raised on Bainbridge Island. Growing up, he had the opportunity to work with his father, Harmon, in the dental office where he was trained as Harmon's lab technician. After graduating from Whitman College, Todd taught conversational English in Japan, worked for a biotechnology firm studying cancer diagnostics before choosing to pursue a career in dentistry. Prior to dental school, he travelled to Russia to meet his future in-laws and make arrangements for his now wife, Yaroslavna, to return to America. The two were married while Todd studied at the University of Washington, School of Dentistry.
Following graduation, they moved to Boston where Todd completed a one-year general practice residency program through Harvard University. The purpose of this year was to improve his medical knowledge while also improving his skills as a young dental practitioner. In addition to extensive studies of medically-compromised patients, Todd managed the dental treatment of patients ranging from those undergoing bone marrow, lung, heart and kidney transplantation to those too sick to be appropriately treated in an outpatient setting (e.g. AIDS patients, all hospital inpatients etc.). This training also included rotations in emergency medicine, oral surgery, head and neck radiology, anesthesiology, oncology and others.
Yaroslavna and Todd returned following his dental education in Boston to make Bainbridge Island their home once again. Todd joined Harmon's dental practice at the Winslow Green where he has become the second generation dentist treating the Bainbridge community. 2012 marked the 50th year of care provided since Harmon first set up his dental office on Bainbridge in 1962.
Todd and Yaroslavna are the proud parents of two children who occasionally visit the dental office as Todd often did with Harmon, when Todd was a boy.
Todd enjoys the personalized nature of the care he provides to patients within his dental practice. He takes the meaning of practice as a challenge that it is never enough to stop learning or contributing within the profession. He looks forward to continue years of care and commitment within the Bainbridge community that is his lifelong home.
