Judith Zantua, D.D.S.

General Dentist

Dr. Zantua says, “I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in the healthcare field because I wanted to help people. I chose dentistry because it combines science with artistry and at the same time demands compassion and understanding. I had an instructor in Dental School tell us “What we do can change lives.” I am always reminded of that when you get a patient that thanks you for allowing them to smile more often or the gratitude you receive when you get them out of pain. In the past 10 years that I’ve been practicing, that’s been the best reward.

“ After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Zantua was awarded her D.D.S. degree from the University of Iowa School of Dentistry. She is active in many organizations including the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association and the Seattle-King County Dental Society.

Dr. Zantua says, “I will make any effort to provide you with the best care possible and as we work together to achieve a healthier smile and have fun time doing it.

In her free time Dr. Zantua enjoys playing her mandolin and guitar. She also likes to travel, hike and ski.
