eAssist Honors Dr. Thomas Kang and the Team at Puget Sound Periodontics with Top Practice Award

Seattle WA, March 2021 – Dr. Thomas Kang and the Team at Puget Sound Periodontics are eAssist’s most recent recipients of the Top Practice Award. This honor is awarded each month to two exceptional eAssist clients who embody the values of integrity, expertise and grace, while providing exemplary patient care, running efficient operations, and giving back to their communities. Presented to the practice as a whole, the award recognizes the need for a cohesive unit to run a practice to the highest standards.

Though born in Texas, Dr. Kang grew up in Washington and earned his BS degree from the University of Washington in Seattle, and his DDS from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in California. Following graduation, he was one of two applicants accepted into the Graduate Periodontal and Implant Specialty program at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. 

Since opening Puget Sound Perio in 2006, Dr. Kang has gone on to become a LANAP-certified clinician, and a Pinhole Surgical Technique-certified clinician (one of only two in Washington). He is generally considered one of the most prolific dental implant surgeons in the northwest region of the United States. With an annual rate of over 600 placements per year since 2007, his expertise has been rewarded with Diamond Level Partnership with Nobel Biocare, and Diplomate Status with the International Congress of Oral Implantology. He is proud of having been recognized as a Top Dentist in the Seattle area every year since 2008, as well as being a Patient’s Choice Winner as one of the top Seattle Dentistry practices.

“I opened this practice with the intention of becoming the premier provider for the full scope of periodontal medicine and implant dentistry in Western Washington. I am proud to say that we count among our patients: other dental professionals, executives, physicians, surgeons, professional athletes, and other discerning professionals who demand the highest level of service and technical aptitude from their medical providers,” said Dr. Kang.

Puget Sound Perio uses not just state-of-the-art technology, but truly industry-leading equipment, products and services in the field of periodontics and dental implants. Dr. Kang provides education in several local dental study clubs and participates in meetings throughout the nation, lecturing on advanced implant technologies, including CAD/CAM of medical devices. He and his colleagues have also contributed to local newspapers and appeared on television as experts on dental implants.

“We present many innovative treatment options that are not commonly offered in other periodontal or surgery practices. We have been able to provide solutions for patients told by other surgical teams that they were not candidates for treatment,” added Dr. Kang. Having grown the practice to now include six doctors and four locations, it’s no surprise that Dr. Kang maintains a large team nearly 25 strong of clinical assistants, hygienists, treatment coordinators, appointment coordinators, administrative support, and even a dedicated patient advocate. 

Referring physicians describe Dr. Kang, the other doctors and team as: caring, compassionate, engaging and kind; professional, thorough and exceptionally skilled; a great asset to the dental community; and simply amazing! Dr. Mark Nordlie of Nordlie Family Dentistry summarized well the collective sentiments of so many doctors who refer their patients, by posting, “Patients experience superior, quality care and treatment that exceeds our expectations. We refer patients to them with complete confidence and trust. Hands down, the best!”
