I met Dr. Paul Rubin long before he became my own dentist. Over the years, I’d heard many wonderful things about Paul and his practice in Seattle.
I’d also had the opportunity to talk with Paul myself a few times about various aspects of holistic healing. But I didn’t have the good fortune of becoming his patient until 2011.
One time in 2007, when my former dentist was on vacation, Paul took care of an emergency dental problem for me. I was so impressed with his quiet presence, his gentle and respectful manner, and his extremely skillful work that I remember thinking, “Hmmmmm, I wish this guy was my dentist!”
A few years later, I made the switch to Paul. Although I usually don’t give helping professionals my personal endorsement until I’ve worked with them for a long time, I decided to make an exception in Paul’s case (it’s April 2012 as I write this).
For one thing, I’ve never heard a single complaint from anyone about Paul in all the years I’ve known about him and his work. Considering how intense it is for most people to visit the dentist, and considering how often things can go wrong with dental work, this lack of complaints seems rather miraculous!
Aside from all the friends and clients who have spoken so highly of Paul, I continue to be repeatedly impressed at every turn with his integrity, his kindness, his patience, his knowledge and skill and attention to detail, and his great sense of humor (which is a real plus in the dental chair, if you ask me).
Paul is so humble that you might never find out how much he knows and how well-respected he is in professional circles unless you do a little digging.

If you decide to make the switch to Paul like I did, please give him and his staff my best. They are a truly lovely group of people, and I hope they will be a blessing in your life as they have been—and continue to be—in mine.
P.S. In case you’re wondering what that second long credential (M.I.A.O.M.T.) means after Paul’s name, it stands for “Master, International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.”
