The DentistDr  Adatto

Dr. Larry Adatto, D.D.S.


When you meet Dr. Larry Adatto, you will sense his professional, friendly, and caring demeanor that is the hallmark of the reputation of the Adatto family for generations. A Seattle native, Dr. Adatto grew up in the shadow of skilled craftsmen. Both of his grandfathers were well known shoemakers, while his own dad worked on full-scale models for the wind tunnel at the Boeing plant here in Seattle.

Dr. Adatto decided to pursue a career in dentistry when, as an early college student, a dentist helped him correct a malformed smile, the result of an accident that broke his front teeth. He was so grateful to the dentist who helped him improve his smile that he wanted to provide that same service to help others.

In 1983, after earning his dental degree from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry, Dr. Adatto started private practice in the Northeast area of Seattle, just north of University Village. Believing that continuing education is paramount for the utmost service to his patients, Dr. Adatto seeks out the most advanced training in cosmetic and functional dentistry. He and his staff have completed a several year course involving hundreds of hours of hands-on, live patient training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI).

LVI logo 300x172Courses included Advanced Functional Anterior Esthetics, Neuromuscular Dentistry (treating head and neck pain), and culminated with Full-mouth Reconstruction where Dr. Adatto integrated the Neuromuscular disciplines with the Functional and Esthetic skills. During the course of this treatment, Dr. Adatto’s patient was cured of intense headaches that had plagued her for over TWENTY YEARS while receiving the smile of her dreams. You can learn more about this type of dentistry in our Neuromuscular Dentistry section.

Dr. Adatto has also completed courses on lumineers- the extremely strong and paper thin porcelain veneers. The procedure eliminates both the need for anesthetic and the removal of sensitive tooth structure. Dr. Adatto has also taken courses on dental implants where he became proficient in dental implant surgery as well as invisalign orthodontics.

Dr. Adatto has been married to his wife, Sharon, since 1978 and has four children and several grandchildren. He lives near the Seward Park area of Seattle where he enjoys the benefits of exercising along the Lake Washington Boulevard and the Seward Park Loop with his family and friends. He also enjoys music, guitar, and, photography.

Dr. Adatto enjoys meeting new friends and looks forward to providing the highest quality in cosmetic and functional dentistry. Come in and join “The Practice” and get the smile and restorative care you’ve been looking for.
