About Us

Our goal is to establish a relationship of trust and friendship that helps your child gain confidence in going to the dentist and the importance of lifelong oral health.

Live Life Smiling

The Kids’ Dentist Highlands is a place for kids, and their parents too. Your kids will have fun exploring our Pacific Northwest  themed office and have a great experience with our pediatric-oriented staff. You can take comfort knowing that your children are learning about good dental hygiene and building a positive association with the dentist that will translate into lifelong habits. Come see why pediatric dentists are so beneficial in helping kids enjoy and understand visits to the dentist.

Take a Tour

Take a tour of our Highlands office which offers pediatric dental services to the families of the greater Renton Highlands area. Our entire office has a Pacific Northwest theme, which is designed to help your kids feel comfortable whether they’re resting in the waiting room or sitting in the dentist chair. After your tour, we invite you to come on by to meet us personally, face-to-face, and see how we can improve your child’s dental experience!

Gig Harbor's best Pediatric Dentist Dr. Dansie with FamilyOur Story

In 2015, Dr. Brian Dansie and his wife Rachel drove across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge for the first time.  Awestruck by the beauty of Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier and the fishing boats below, they looked at each other and said, “Wow!”  It only got better from there when Dr. Brian caught his first ever king salmon.  He was hooked on the Northwest – pun intended.

Having grown up in a small town in the desert valley of Utah, the Dansie’s had never seen so much water and greenery.  Their current home in Northern California was sunny, but this was even better.  They packed up their three young children and moved to the green, sometimes gray, Gig Harbor.

Shortly after, Dr. Brian had an opportunity to buy The Kids’ Dentist, a wonderful 40+ year-old established practice in Renton.  The practice continued to thrive, as he nurtured a patient-first, happy culture for kids. In 2018, seeing the same need in the quiet little harbor town his family had grown to love, he opened The Kids’ Dentist “Gig Harbor.”

Fortunately, Dr. Brian’s friend Dr. Jared Roberts had returned to his home state of Washington with his wife Crystal and their own three young children.  Dr. Jared brought his caring, friendly demeanor to both The Kids’ Dentist in Renton and Gig Harbor.

In 2020, a retiring pediatric practitioner in the Renton highlands near Newcastle approached Dr. Brian and Dr. Jared about adding her practice to theirs, and The Kids’ Dentist “Highlands” was born.  This latest addition offered the opportunity to add another talented and compassionate practitioner, Dr. Krisha Misa, who is also from Washington and is the embodiment of “having a good day.”

It has taken a lot of hard work to fulfill this dream, decades in the making, but the pediatric dentists at The Kids’ Dentist Washington wouldn’t have done it any other way.  Our goal is to be the office that families happily choose for the dental care of their children.  It’s the positive vision in everything we do.  Give us a try at any of our three locations and see what makes us different.  We look forward to working together to create healthy habits and the confidence your child needs to live life smiling.
