Meet Dr. Timar Alem

I am a family dentist in Shoreline who is passionate about dentistry and I look forward to helping you preserve and improve your oral health!

I feel so fortunate to be in a profession that allows me to use my skills to make a difference in people’s lives. I consistently work to empower and educate my patients to take an active role in their oral health and gain great satisfaction when they show results. It is my goal to work in partnership with my patients to help them achieve optimal oral health and beautiful smiles. 

I take pride in the quality of work that I provide and it brings me joy knowing the work that I do improves my patients' health, restores their function and smiles.  The opportunity dentistry gives me to help people be more confident about their smiles is immensly rewarding.  Achieving and maintaining excellent oral health is also a foundation of personal general health and I am dedicated to helping my patients with this journey.  I work with professional, caring staff and we all share the same mission of making our patients feel welcomed, at ease and comfortable at our office.  My team and I take the time to get to know each of our patients and we all enjoy the great relationships we have built with them over the years.

I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University.  I have been practicing for over 20 years and it is exciting to be part of the dynamic positive changes in technology and treatment methods used in dentistry.  This allows me to deliver long lasting restorative and cosmetic dentistry for my patients.  I am also committed to providing my patients with the most up-to-date dental care by staying active through continuing dental education and current with the many advances in dentistry for the benefit of my patients.

I hold professional membership in the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health which allows me to stay abreast with the positive developments happening in whole body health. As your oral health provider my team and I care about your smiles as well as your over-all health.

I live in Edmonds with my husband, our three boys, and our puppy Dexter. When I’m not in the office, I like to spend time with family, attend my kids' sporting events, cheer for Seahawks and other local teams, practice yoga, and visit local spas.
