Where Compassion and Innovation Meet

Meet Dr. Pawlowski

My goal as a periodontist is to provide comprehensive treatment while educating my patients about the importance of good lifestyle choices for the health of their mouth. I think it is also very important to keep free and open communication between our office, patients, and general dentists. I love what I do because, by saving teeth and the supporting structure around them, I can improve my patients’ quality of life.


I attended the University of Alberta in Edmonton where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1978. I practiced 16 years of general dentistry where I became familiar with all aspects of dentistry. I continued on to the University of Washington in Seattle, receiving my Master of Science in Dentistry and completed my research in Periodontics. I continue my education by attending courses and seminars yearly on subjects such as implants, tissue and bone grafts, and extractions, as well as being involved with numerous professional organizations.
