North Tacoma Pediatric Dentistry is one of the largest pediatric dental practices serving Tacoma and Puyallup.
We are also one of few practices in the entire Puget Sound region that offers cosmetic dentistry and conscious sedation for kids. In fact, many other dentists refer their patients to us for specialty and surgical care because of our expertise and state-of-the-art facilities. We’re proud of that!
But what matters the most is our relationship with you and your family. Our goal is to be an integral part of your child’s development, providing expert treatment and compassionate care you can trust.
Seeing children and families is my passion! I love the opportunity to work with children and parents to help prevent dental disease and ensure a healthy and happy smile! If a child does need dental treatment, I consider this an opportunity to provide high quality dental care in a caring and comforting environment for child and parents.

Dr. Ellen Polsky
Just like childhood, this speciality is unpredictable, challenging, and full of joyful moments. I feel lucky to share in these moments with families every day while also positively shaping kids’ dental health from an early age.

Of course not every child looks forward to a dentist visit. That’s why I bring a lighthearted approach and sense of humor to my work and make every effort to accommodate each child’s unique personality in a safe, comfortable environment. I also love working with children with special needs.
At the end of the day, most parents are very pleasantly surprised at how well their children did in our office. They put a lot of trust in our care, and it is my privilege and pleasure to work with them.
