Dr. Nicole Serra
“After 20+ years in private practice, I am grateful to be able to offer my experience and enthusiasm for my work to anyone who walks through our doors. Each day in dentistry presents unique challenges to meet, both personally and professionally. I encourage creative collaboration with my team and with each patient, as we help one another strive towards health and happiness. I believe that each patient seeks to find a thorough understanding of their specific conditions, a clear path to achieve and maintain their oral health, and a supportive team of professionals to facilitate the process. It is a great privilege to build relationship with so many families in the Edmonds community and to see them through a lifetime of dental needs. Along with my commitment to clinical care, I am deeply invested in the human connection and the sharing of life’s journey with careful and compassionate understanding.”
