LISA HORSCHMAN, DDS
Well, I did it. After many years of building my family and putting my career second, I finally took the plunge into practice ownership. I feel lucky to have discovered and settled in Poulsbo, amongst a generous, caring community and gorgeous landscape. Most of the time you can see me hustling around town, chauffeuring my kids from one activity to the next, or at home with my hands in the dirt continually learning how to manage a garden. My love of yoga, cooking and all things DIY keep me sane in the madness that is being a fulltime working mother of three. At this point in my life, however, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When you feel unhappy with the appearance or function of your smile, your perceived self-image has negative effects on your self-esteem. Bringing health and beauty to people who have experienced such pain is my greatest passion. I help my patients, who include children, teens and adults, achieve their oral health goals to ensure you have a smile you can be proud of.
One treatment modality is not right for everyone. By educating my patients and taking time to learn where their values lie, we collaborate to come up with individualized treatment plans. My ultimate goal is to provide the most conservative dentistry available, helping to preserve the natural tooth as long as possible, while fulfilling my patient’s needs. With advanced training in the Bioclear Method I am well equipped to offer esthetic and general dentistry with minimally invasive techniques.
My formal education started and ended at the University of Washington, earning both my Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Through the Spear Study Club and numerous Continuing Education courses, I exceed the annual requirements for my profession. I am affiliated with the American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association and the Kitsap County Dental Association. I am the General Supervising Dentist for the local non-profit organization Best Dental Help, which is a school- based preventative sealant and fluoride program for preschool and elementary aged children.
I look forward to serving and providing outstanding dental care to my friends, neighbors and community at large here in the beautiful West Sound!
