I had a great experience at Mercer Island Smiles. Dr. McCulloch was very efficient and I was done in less than a year. The office is so unique with... Quinton the dog. He is so comforting and sweet! I have already recommended many people to this office.read more

Our son has been seeing Dr. McCulloch in anticipation of needing braces. All of our visits were great. The staff were so great with my anxious son... and had some great tricks to handle his strong gag reflex while getting fitted for a retainer. At one of our visits I asked about my own teeth as I have never had braces before and I was told I’d be a great candidate for Invisalign. The process to be evaluated was quick and easy. Dr McCulloch told me I would need Invisalign for 4-6 months, it could be 4 months if I worked hard to wear them 22 hours a day. I love a good challenge and kept up my end of the deal and wore my trays consistently. Today it’s been 4 months and I got to have my attachments taken off! My smile looks amazing! Dr McCulloch even fixed some unevenness on the tops of my teeth so that my smile looks even better:). Just such a pleasant and positive experience with the entire staff. My husband is going to do Invisalign as well and our 2 daughters will eventually see her for braces too! Orthodontics Associates of Mercer Island is a great place for the whole family❤️read more

I always experience apprehension going to the dentist. But for once my fears were unfounded. Dr. McCullough was cordial, direct and decisive from... the beginning. Her attributes formulated a trust that ensured me she would do what she said. All that she asked was my full commitment wearing the Invisalign. It was a simple request that I took seriously, and the results speak for themselves. I would recommend Dr. McCullough to anyone who wants an engaging, honest practitioner, who is passionate about doing right by her patients.read more

I had adult braces at 45. I chose Dr. McCulloch and a pandemic year to do so and I could t be happier!! Dr McCulloch is the best! I found her to be... professional honest, efficient and pleasant and I feel the same about the staff. I have seen several of her techs and only had good experiences. Marissa at the front desk is always friendly and always knows my name. I felt very comfortable with the office and the precautions they are taking to ensure everyone is safe during the pandemic. And then there is Quentin…if you love dogs, this is the orthodontist for you! Five stars, would absolutely recommend!read more

Dr. McCulloch and her team are outstanding! Myself and 2 kids all use them for our orthodontics and I can’t recommend them enough. Dr. McCulloch is... highly technical and detail oriented. We had to work through some issues around missing permanent teeth with both kids. She made sure that we were informed about the options and process, and then coordinated the details with their dentist and oral surgeon. We feel lucky to have found her!read more

Visiting from abroad my daughter ended up with two loose brackets. Dr. McCulloch and her team gave our family the most gracious and quality care as... if we were her own established patients. Being a healthcare professional myself, I was genuinely impressed with the level of professionalism and efficiency observed not only during care of my daughter but as I observed Dr. McCulloch interacting with other patients and her staff. What a thoroughly wonderful visit. I enthusiastically recommend her to those looking for orthodontic care.read more

I have used Kara McCulloch personally for Invisalign and both of my daughters have been treated by Kara for braces. All three of us are beyond... satisfied with the professional service and quality of work. Not only has she gone out of her way to coordinate with our dentist to make sure we address specific issues but has made sure that all three of us had a great experience. I can't say enough nice things about the staff, Kara herself, and the end results!read more

Our experience of Dr McCulloch’s orthodontic services was excellent. She, and her team are professional, dedicated and hardworking. I was always... amazed that the receptionist managed to fit appointments around our demanding schedule. Dr McCulloch works closely with an oral surgeon and together they diagnosed and treated some challenging problems with my daughter’s teeth. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr McCulloch to any parent looking for an orthodontist for their child.read more

Dr. McCulloch is absolutely fantastic. She has gone out of way on multiple occasions to care for my daughter, including on coming in on a holiday to... remove my daughter’s braces. She did an amazing job despite my daughter being uninterested in her own oral care. I am very happy with the results!read more
