Updates About Our Practice 

April 5, 2023

Dr. Dan and Dr. Taylor’s little baby Jackson has decided to share his mom with others again. She will be back working part-time after having taken her maternity leave earlier this year. Jackson was born on 12/1/22 and his tooth “P” has already started to erupt with “O” just making an appearance today. Those are the lower central incisors that are the first baby teeth to erupt in the mouth. Most babies starting teething at 6 months, but Jackson was so excited to see the dentist, AKA “Mom” or “Dad”, that he started teething a week before 4 months!

Dental Crown

August 26th, 2020


We are now offering full Zirconia crowns. Zirconia is a metal oxide material that has unique characteristics allowing us to offer the white and esthetic appearance of ceramic with the toughness of a metal. Zirconia is considered to be in the family of titanium metals and as such is tough and durable, even for posterior crowns. 

Please ask us about this new material, one of the newest available in dentistry today. If you have crowns that are too dark or have fractured, this may be the best choice for you! Whittaker Family Dentistry is always there to provide the services that patients want and need!

Dr. Dan Whittaker

July 6th, 2020


Dr. Daniel Whittaker has officially started working at Whittaker Family Dentistry. He graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry and was part of the first class ever to have their licensing exam and graduation ceremony cancelled. Luckily, Dr. Whittaker was able to take his licensing exam in June after it had been postponed due to COVID-19 from its original date in March. He has been looking forward to starting his career for a while, and feels extremely blessed to have been able to receive his dental license when many of the other members of the dental Class of 2020 around the country have not been able to do so.

While in school, Dr. Whittaker was nicknamed “Dan Dan the denture man!” as he took on more denture cases during his third year than anyone in his class. He also had thought about pursuing oral surgery early on, before deciding his dream was to practice general dentistry with his father. Dr. Whittaker excelled at the University of Washington’s restorative, endodontics, and oral surgery clinics. He enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and, like his father, takes a conservative approach to treatment planning and diagnosing.

Please join us in welcoming out newest doctor!
