About Dr. Dean L. Carlston

Dr. Carlston received his degree from BaylorDentalSchool in Dallas, Texas and is a member of the American Dental Association. With more than 35 years of experience in dentistry, he is skilled in a wide variety of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures, and has remained at the forefront of dentistry through his commitment to continuing education. He is also well-trained in tooth conserving dentistry, which enables him to provide successful, yet minimally invasive treatment options. Dr. Carlston is the epitome of a patient-centered dentist, providing complete care to all patients from initial consultation to subsequent follow-up appointments. By providing quality, individualized treatment, Dr. Carlston has been able to create a family of patients who feel comfortable and secure under his care. 

Specializing in Tooth Conserving Dentistry and Orthodontia

With each of his patients, Dr. Carlston takes a look at the “whole picture” of the mouth. His unique approach to dentistry is heavily based in orthodontic treatments and tooth conserving dentistry. These two concepts allow Dr. Carlston to provide comprehensive treatment to promote the health of the entire mouth, while preserving as much of a tooth’s natural structure. While tooth conserving dentistry focuses on restoring the teeth with the least-invasive methods, orthodontia focuses on maintaining the structures of the mouth for complete oral health. Dr. Carlston incorporates advanced technologies that complement these techniques, such as the CEREC 3D milling machine, into every aspect of his practice.

Placing Your Comfort First

The atmosphere at Carlston Dental Group is anything but cold and clinical. We have created an environment of superior comfort and safety, from the décor and amenities we offer to the advanced tools we use. Dr. Carlston’s “Overland Oasis” is a soothing courtyard garden where patients can come to relax – with or without an appointment. In addition, we promote patient convenience and comfort with tools such as digital X-rays, intra-oral cameras, and same-day restorations. We invite you to visit our office and experience for yourself what dentistry should be.

Trust the Professionals at Carlston Dental Group

We earn our patients’ trust by placing their best interests at heart. We believe that being open and honest with our patients and educating them on their oral health and treatment options are the keys to a positive dental experience. We encourage you to take part in your dental care, and help you make informed decisions regarding your treatment.

I love my teeth!!! I have had many fillings from Dr. Carlston and veneers as well. It feels so good to smile and I am complimented on my teeth regularly now. My teeth look so natural that even my closest friend couldn't pin point what was different about me. I would highly recommend him! The staff was friendly and helpful and the facility was clean and professional. I will definitely be back when in Los Angeles. Angie C., Mountlake, WA
