Welcome to Wedgwood Dental Center


Updated 3/23/2020

Our office will be postponing all routine dental treatment and cleanings. We will, however, be available for any dental emergencies that may arise. If so, you can call Dr. Shackelton anytime at 206-683-8684.

Our expected return date is May 18, 2020, and we will be adding additional hours to support our return to business. As this is a constantly evolving situation, we will update you when we know more information, or when making any further changes. 

This decision was made in accordance with The American Dental Association’s recommendations that all dental offices discontinue non-emergency care until May 18,2020.  Our goal in dentistry has always been to improve our patients’ health and to prevent disease and infection. We believe this closure will support these goals.  

To support our patients in anticipation of our reopening, Dr. Shackelton has completed a lecture course on the COVID-19, including important infection control procedures in dental healthcare settings. This information has been provided to and implemented with our entire staff. 

Below are some resources for the latest information about the virus:



Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to supporting your oral healthcare needs as soon as safely possible.

Wedgwood Dental Center


Dr. Emily Shackelton

At Wedgwood Dental Center (WDC) we believe in providing our patients with the best possible dental care in a comfortable and friendly setting. We are conveniently located in the Wedgwood neighborhood of Seattle, just north of the University of Washington and close to Laurelhurst, Ravenna, View Ridge, Sandpoint and Greenlake.

WDC is owned by Dr. Emily Shackelton. Dr. Shackelton has been in dentistry since 1989. After graduating from Eastern Washington University, she began her career in the dental field as a registered dental hygienist. She returned to dental school, attending Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to gain the skills needed to treat patients in all aspects of dental health and care.

In 2006, Dr. Shackelton established Wedgwood Dental Center with these values in place:

  • Complete commitment to your dental and overall health
  • The highest quality dental materials, laboratory services, and techniques
  • Proactively partnering with you for the prevention of dental disease
  • Believing it is our pleasure and honor to be your dentist and dental team
  • Treating you, your family, and your referrals, like family

We look forward to meeting and partnering with you for a lifetime of oral health.
