Dental Residency

Program Overview

HealthPoint’s Dental Residency is located in Tukwila, Washington, just minutes away from downtown Seattle. Our Tukwila clinic is home to primary medical care and an on-site pharmacy where residents have the opportunity to collaborate with these providers, but also refer patients to additional services.

Each AEGD program is unique, so we wanted to highlight the procedures, equipment, training, and support you can expect here at HealthPoint. If you have any specific questions about our program, we encourage you to reach out to our Residency Program Director, Ginger Tarabetz at
