Dr. Larry Adatto is proud to be a born-and-bred Seattle native. He graduated in 1982 from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. After 36 years of creating beautiful smiles, “Dr. Larry” retired from his own private practice in Northeast Seattle. During that time, Dr. Larry completed masters level training in full-mouth reconstruction at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Training, he trained in Neuro-muscular Dentistry to treat Jaw pain, and he became certified in Invisalign orthodontics.
Dr. Larry loves using all the latest technology like the Invisalign Itero scanner or the neuro-muscular K7 program to help his patients create a more beautiful smile, straighten their teeth, or eliminate their annoying jaw pain. He says it make dentistry “more fun”, and keeps him “fresh and excited” to be a dentist. Patients appreciate Dr. Larry’s passion for continually learning new techniques and acquiring new “gadgets” that makes their dental experience more enjoyable.
Dr. Larry chose to be a dentist because when he was younger, he had an accident which broke many of his front teeth. His dentist fixed his teeth so beautifully that it actually changed his whole life. Dr. Larry decided right then that he wanted to become a dentist so that he could give that same benefit to his patients.
Dr. Larry enjoys music, plays acoustical and bass guitar, and loves going for “walk-and-talks” around Seward Park with Sharon, his wife of more than 40 years. Together they have raised four children and, SO FAR, have seven grandchildren.
Dr. Larry will be working on Wednesdays and Thursdays at our office. Please come and welcome Dr. Larry.
