On Sunday, November 15th, Governor Inslee announced new restrictions to curb surging COVID-19 cases, focused largely on restaurants, bars and gyms, and banning indoor gatherings. The Governor did not include any limitations on health care service at this time.
To help prevent the spread of infection and for the health and safety of our patients and our staff, we will continue screening ALL patients prior to being admitted to the clinic.
If you have traveled outside of the Puget Sound area in the past two weeks or have any symptoms associated with current CDC guidelines & have NOT been vaccinated, you MAY be asked to reschedule your appointment.
The safety of our staff and patients is our highest priority and we are committed to doing our part to minimize any risk while continuing care for our patients and community. Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Meet Dr Jorg
Dr Jorg was born in Poulsbo, WA and has lived in Seattle since 1994. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1999 with 2 B.S. degrees in Zoology and Cell & Molecular Biology and a minor in Chemistry. After college, she held a position at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the transplant biology department. She later made a decision to pursue a career in dentistry. She worked with a dentist in a private practice on Queen Anne, where she gained experience as a dental assistant before applying to Dental Schools. She returned to UW for her Doctorate degree. After graduating in 2005 with a D.D.S. she has worked in several dental offices including a community clinic in Olympia and a highly regarded private group practice on First Hill. In 2008 she had the opportunity to purchase the practice in Ballard from Dr. Carol Friedel who was retiring. Dr Jorg is dedicated to attending continuing dental education courses in order to provide the most advanced treatments and comprehensive dental care to her patients. On a personal level, she enjoys travel, cooking, yoga, running, snowboarding and hiking. Dr Jorg lives in Olympic Manor with her husband and 2 children.
Meet Dr Laster
Dr. Sarah Laster is a Texas native. She graduated with honors from Baylor University with an undergraduate degree in Psychology in 2006. She then went on to receive her D.D.S. degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She has been practicing dentistry since 2010. She began her career in a small clinic in downtown San Antonio, Texas, near the historic Riverwalk. For several years prior to moving to Washington, she provided dental care to under-served areas in rural Oregon. She has extensive experience working with children in the dental setting. She is passionate about restorative dentistry as well as the connection between oral health and overall health.
She says,“the best part of my profession is helping my patients have a healthy, beautiful smile. Dentistry is so unique in that it allows me to be an artist and a health care provider at the same time. I feel honored to be able to be involved in people’s lives in such a special way.”
Her favorite pastimes include: listening to music, dancing, eating and cooking, spending time with family and friends, and adventuring outside. What she loves most about Seattle: the rich local culture, the diversity of people living here, and the beautiful seasons.
