His fulfilling achievements and interests are in family general dentistry including routine preventive care for adults and children of all ages, cosmetic/esthetics, restorative, fillings, endodontic and reparative treatment. His reward comes from seeing his patients over the last 38 years be in comfort, proudly displaying a radiant smile, as well as having the ability to maintain their own dental health.

Born in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood (high school class of 1970) he received his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University at Northridge located in the lush, subtropical San Fernando Valley in the field of Environmental Health Science (class of 1975). He moved to Seattle in 1975 to attend the University of Washington School of Dentistry where he graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1979. He has had his own private practice since 1981 and has been in the same dental office serving his community of friends since 1982. He was a member in good standing with the American Dental Association (ADA) for 30 years, Washington State Dental Association, and the Seattle King County Dental Association.
Dr. Chavez gives much of the credit for 38 years of loyal patient following to his fine staff for finding convenient appointment times and for providing soothing comfort during treatment. Dr. Chavez and the entire staff have volunteered a day near Valentine's Day every year for more than 25 years to provide dental care at no charge to men, women, and children in need of dentistry who have no means to pay. Dr. Chavez also works closely with many dental insurance companies at a reduced fee so his patients can have the dental care they deserve, need, and desire and has not raised his fees since 2008.
Dr. Chavez is a single father of three amazing boys Mitchell, and twin boys Jonathan and Benjamin. He attends church regularly and has other outside interests that include family vacations, tennis, perfecting his Spanish, guitar, piano and movies. Dr. Chavez is very friendly, enjoys making new friends and looks forward to meeting you.
