Alfadhli Abu, DDS
Education and Continuing Education
I attended the University of Washington and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in microbiology. Following my undergraduate degree, I pursued my dental education at the University of Washington, School of Dentistry.
I completed a General Practice Residency at the VA Medical Center in Long Beach, California, where I refined my skills in surgical and cosmetic dentistry.
Following my residency training, I pursued a two-year Oral Implantology and Implant Prosthodontics Fellowship at Brookdale University Hospital in New York.
I received advanced surgical training to become a skilled implantologist in the placement of implants, bone grafting, sinus augmentations, aesthetic soft tissue management and the restoration of implants from both the single tooth to full-mouth rehabilitation.
Why I Love Dentistry
Growing up, I have always had an interest in health care, especially dentistry. It has allowed me to exercise my passion as a clinician and improve the oral health of my patients.
In addition, dentistry has given me the chance to make it possible for patients who have not smiled in a long time to lay a big and healthy beam on the world and be seen as they really are. It can change people’s lives in many, many ways — most of which I am sure I will never know. But, occasionally, a dentist will get a heartfelt thank-you that makes it all worth it.
I feel very privileged to be able to serve my community and to deliver quality care, especially in the area of dental implantology.
I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia, and I have lived in the Seattle area for most of my life. Despite my wonderful experiences living in California and New York during my residency and fellowship programs, I am still a loyal Washingtonian! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and being active.
