We enjoy working together and sharing our lives with our "family". Some of our team have been with us since day one and they are indeed like "family". We invite you to join us and experience excellent care from our "family" to yours.
My name is Lynn Coleman and I am Dr. Coleman's wife of 45 years. We spent 21 years in the US Navy and during that time I worked as a clergy secretary. Since 1992 I have been Dr. Coleman's Office Manager. Some of our team have been with us since day one and they are like family.
I received my BSDH from UW in 1977 and an MBA from Seattle U in 1989, and have been lucky to work with Dr. Coleman's team since 2007. I enjoy all aspects of building relationships in family dentistry, especially specializing in periodontal therapies and customizing the treatment options.
I am continually challenged, encouraged and energized by Dr. Coleman to pursue excellence on our patient's behalf. Personally, I am blessed to be the mom of three kids with two currently in college. I enjoy gardening, chasing the sun, reading and wine tasting. I am very thankful to all of you for choosing us for your dental care!
Working with Dr. Coleman is constant education, and I wouldn't want it any other way. I am thrilled to participate in beyond "just teeth" dentistry, wellness and working with my sister Venesa. I especially enjoy talking with our patients, sharing life's experiences and building trust.
Away from the office, I love spending time with my family, paper-crafting, container gardening and the beach rain or shine.
My name is Karla and have been working with Dr. Coleman for 20+ years. During this time I have been privileged to acquire vast training and knowledge in advanced Periodontal treatments including Lasers, pathogen testing/treating and Oxygen therapies.
Most of my time is spent with my wonderful husband of 20+ years and our two daughters in their sports and as an active member of their PTA, as well as being an active volunteer in our Christian church. I enjoy hiking, reading, movies and traveling anywhere, especially Disney.
I have worked in dentistry for over twenty years, and have had the joy and privilege of working with Dr. Jim Coleman and Team since 1992. I received my initial training from Highline Occupational Skills Center and Lake Washington Technical Institute. I enjoy expanding my knowledge and skills with many more hours of continuing education annually.
I am the proud mother of my daughter Valerie and my son Derek. We spend most of our free time with family, friends, and our two dogs. We enjoy hiking, beaches, attending various festivals, and road trips exploring Washington.
New Patient Coordinator
I joined this practice in 1990, following my primary dental training at Puget Sound Skills Center while in high school. Due to Dr. Coleman's progressive approach to dentistry, our journey has been ever-changing, challenging & rewarding. I have worked chairside, front office, and in between, and have enjoyed the privilege of building trusting relationships and sharing in the health of generations of families.
I have a Daughter and Son who share my love of theater, the arts and sports and like myself- are also solar powered by the wonders of nature.

"Top service looking out for your best interest first. Once again I had a great experience with Dr. Coleman and his team. I was under a time crunch, they acknowledged that from that start - without a reminder. During the procedure the Dr. suggested we change approaches based on what he saw to a less expensive fix that he felt would do the job. Finished early, under budget and with great results."
"The best. My teeth need a Dr. who can see what needs to be done and it gets done. I have always recommended Dr. Coleman, many times. His entire staff have been a very wonderful experience, after many years with other dentists. Thank you all."
"As always, patient focussed from beginning to end. Long time user of this dental practice. I am not the ideal patient, but this office continues to provide unbiased premium service no matter who you are or what your dental needs. Staff turnover is almost zero so everyone knows you when you arrive. I had a crown replaced and the first try was not up to the high standards that Dr. Coleman and his team demand, so they re-manufactured the second crown at their expense and it fit perfectly. They are not the least expensive, but to quote the old adage, You get what you pay for - especially in the world of medicine. My sincere thanks to Dr. Coleman and his team for providing me with the best dentistry services I have ever had."
"Awesome experience. I am new to the state, so finding new and good doctors can be challenging. I was completely impressed with Dr. Coleman and his staff. Karla was my dental hygienist and she was extremely thorough and offered good advice. I was very comfortable the entire time. Everyone was very friendly. "
