Dr. Amanda Tavoularis

Dr. Amanda Tavoularis was born and raised in Washington State where her passion for women’s dentistry began. She began her training at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. After graduating in 1995, Amanda chose to continue her education as well as serve across various dental boards and networks.

Amongst these dental networks includes the Wellness Dentistry Network, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, and the Snohomish County Dental Association.

Dr. Amanda has always seen her purpose to stay at the forefront of dentistry which is why she chose to complete a comprehensive nine-course education curriculum at the prestigious Kois Center in Seattle, WA. She completed over 200 hours of didactic and hands-on education encompassing all clinical areas of dentistry. She became named as a Kois Certified Dentists and earned the honor of Kois Mentor status in 2018.

She is dedicated to providing comprehensive, health-centered dentistry mixing natural function with stunning aesthetics. Her practice is active in Lynnwood/Edmonds, WA and she also serves as a dental expert on the Emergency Dentists USA team. She is committed to dental excellence and helping patients avoid serious dental emergencies.

Dr. Amanda expertise on women’s dental health shines on the Emergency Dentists USA team. She realized a need to have more extensive information about a woman’s dental health, especially through pregnancy. She says that because of changing hormones, a woman’s mouth can be greatly affected by pregnancy causing dental issues such as gum disease. That’s why through her practice, she is dedicated to educating women on how to take care of their teeth and avoid dental issues during pregnancy and throughout their entire life.

After experiencing her own dental issues during her pregnancy including a mild case of gingivitis, she knew she needed to do more in her own practice to help other expecting women. Pregnancy gingivitis is common in pregnant women and can sometimes lead to preterm birth and low-birth weights. Dr. Amanda says she combatted her gingivitis during her own pregnancy by keeping an oral care routine, maintaining a well-balanced diet, and visiting a dentist for an exam and cleaning.

An effective oral care routine consists of brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing regularly with an antimicrobial mouthwash. When patients come to see Dr. Amanda, they can expect her to offer her advice on maintaining a well-balanced diet as well. She suggests women who are pregnant to focus on eating foods high in vitamins and nutrients. Foods such as vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, whole-grains, and dairy products are great for any mother who is expecting. And while it’s normal for expecting mothers to experience food cravings, Dr. Amanda recommends that women try to limit sugary foods and drinks to help prevent tooth decay.

While some pregnancy related dental issues go away once the baby is born, mothers are still at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. She encourages women and new moms to schedule regular dental visits and take care of their teeth at all times. Dental health is extremely important to one’s overall health and Dr. Amanda Tavoularis is committed to always staying up-to-date on her dental education so that she can better help women and other patients have the best oral health possible.
