I take your care personally. I know we've been successful when you don't think about us… because you're pain-free, your function is fully restored, and your smile is beautiful once again

Dr. Arthur’s goal is to create a comfortable environment for patients with exceptional, full-service dental care. Her unfortunate childhood dental experiences led to a fear of the dentist, but also motivated her to pursue dentistry in order to create a more positive experience for patients. Today, Dr. Arthur loves to connect personally with every patient, especially those who may experience dental anxiety as she once did.

In addition to offering restorative dentistry and root canalsClick to learn more about root canals, Dr. Arthur has advanced training and extensive experience in surgery, including extractions and implants.

In her free time, Dr. Arthur loves surfing, paddleboarding, hiking, road biking, and spending time with her friends and family. Fun fact: Dr. Arthur has a new puppy named Jersey Girl, a German Shepherd, who will be trained as Illahee Dental’s own therapy dog!

I was born in Bremerton Naval Hospital and moved around due to having a father in the military. Once he retired, we settled down on Vashon Island, where I completed high school. I met my husband Jeremy in Bremerton after graduating and was married in 2003; Jeremy served 8 years, and once out, we decided to settle here.

I love bringing patients confidence in their smiles and partnering with them for optimal oral health and overall health. I’m a team player who’s always willing to help out where needed and always want to make sure patients are comfortable throughout their appointment.

I enjoy getting outside when it’s warm for a nice walk or enjoying a day at the beach; I love traveling and visiting new places. I enjoy watching my kids compete in their sports – soccer for my son and gymnastics for my daughter. I also love to cook and try new recipes.
