Graham Hearn, DDS, MSD

 

 

Dr. Hearn is a board certified pediatric dentist and he is excited to join the team at Seattle Pediatric Dentists. He has a passion for providing patient-centered, scientifically-based care. He left his childhood citrus farm in Visalia, California to complete his undergraduate education at UC San Diego in sunny La Jolla, then dental school at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. He completed a two-year General Practice Residency at the University of Virginia and his Pediatric Dentistry residency at the University of Washington, and was chief resident at both programs. He has also served as faculty at the University of Washington and worked in private practice in Northern California.

In his spare time, he enjoys being outdoors: backpacking, climbing, traveling, skiing, and spending time with friends and family.

 

 “Every child deserves a great smile and to have a great experience at the dentist. Seeing the dentist should be fun, relaxing, and inspire a lifetime of healthy teeth!”

 

 

Meet Our Team!

Our primary asset is our talented and friendly staff...

 

Your child’s appointment will be comfortable and enjoyable because of the extensive training our team has received and the relaxed environment that we have created.

 

We cultivate a relationship with each of our patients, which not only ensures better children’s dental care, but also turns a visit with our doctors and team into a visit between friends.  Our team members look forward to enjoying a long-term relationship with both you and your children.

 

  • We take special notes on each child during the visit.

  • We care about what techniques work the best for your child.

  • We create an atmosphere of collaboration with parents, making sure you have a clear understanding of the treatment, follow-up, and solutions to your child’s dental health.

  • We believe in continuing education and as we keep ourselves up-to-date we will also keep you up-to-date on the latest equipment and techniques used to treat your children.

Appointments

Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. We request 48-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. A cancellation fee will be charged if less than 48 hours notice is given.

 

Insurance

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

 

Financial Information

Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment.

 

We accept payments by cash, checks, and all major credit cards. Please ask a member of our staff, and we will review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs. If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service.

 

Although we participate with most major dental insurances, it is difficult to participate in all insurances.  We welcome you to our office even If we are out of network with your insurance.  With many out of network plans, there is often little or no difference in the out of pocket expense going out of network with our office. We are happy to discuss all of these options with you.

First Visit to Our Office

 

During your child’s first visit to our office, we want to take the time to get acquainted and gather information. This includes getting to know you and your child building a friendship with them while doing a thorough examination. Depending on your child’s age we could possibly take digital x-rays we feel may be required to make a complete diagnosis. At this time we will also discuss with you the nature of any dental care if necessary.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

 

A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Dupuis and Dr. Hearn, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.

 

What is a Board Certified

Pediatric Dentist?

 

When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist like Dr. Dupuis and Dr.Hearn have successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home

 

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...

 

• Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and
preventive services.

• Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a
caries-risk assessment.

• Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.

• Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).

• Dietary counseling.

• Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.

• Referral at an age determined by patient, parent,
and pediatric dentist.
