About Us

Dr. Eric Opsvig

After graduating from the University of Washington Dental School in 1985, I worked at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where I was assigned to provide urgent dental procedures to accident victims in the emergency room. It was challenging and rewarding, and it helped prepare me for my future dental career.

Returning to Seattle, I became an associate with a dentist who practiced in the Virginia Mason Hospital. This was invaluable experience for me as I was able to treat both private patients and in-patients from the hospital who were medically compromised.

In 1988 I launched my own solo practice in the Cabrini Tower in downtown Seattle. I greatly enjoyed my dental practice there, but not my commute from Edmonds, Washington. In 1998, along with my wife, Teresa, and our five daughters, we moved to beautiful North Bend, Washington. I opened the doors to our dental practice here, and we have enjoyed every minute of it.

I received my dental assistant certification from Lake Washington Voc-Tech in 1987. My first job after graduating was in a fast-paced oral surgery office, where I learned both the medical issues and the dental issues surrounding oral surgery procedures. It was fifteen years ago that I started working with Dr. Opsvig, and there are many things I appreciate about my work experience here-- from his very high standards of dentistry, to the goals we continually set to keep up with ground-breaking techniques and ideas. We are always learning here, and I love that. I also enjoy working with Dr. Opsvig, Cheryl and Teresa, as I consider them my second family. We really do have fun together!

Teresa- Office Manager

go up

Hi there. I am Teresa, married to the dentist, Eric Opsvig. We met as students at the University of Washington. He was just applying to dental school and I was finishing my degree in Spanish Language and Literature. We worked in the early am hours as blood drawers at the University Hospital. He was the really great technician, and I was the mediocre one who was routinely sent to the obstetrics department because a pregnant woman has really good veins! While I admired his skill, little did I know that we would become married soon, that we would go on to have five little girls who we would raise here in the Snoqualmie Valley. Our four oldest have graduated from college and our youngest is an electrical engineering student at the University of Washington.
