Dr. Kathryn Jagow
"It brings me so much joy to serve this community. I feel blessed to be part of the lives of so many wonderful people. The best part of my day is when I make a difference in a patient’s life by helping them achieve their oral health goals. Seeing my patient smile again is the best part of being a dentist. I cannot imagine another profession that would give me so much happiness."
A Passion for Dentistry
I am passionate about providing individualized care for each of my patients. I enjoy getting to know them and listening to their needs and goals for their oral health. It's exciting to help them create a unique care plan to meet their needs.
I want my patients to know how honored I am that they entrust their dental health and smile to me. I want to form a partnership with each patient. Working together, we can achieve optimal oral health. I am here for my patients, and actively work to ensure they are comfortable.
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
I was awarded my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington School of Dentistry following my bachelor's degree at Seattle Pacific University, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. Oral healthcare is a field where there are ongoing changes in treatments, new materials being developed, and technological breakthroughs happening. It's essential that I remain current on these changes, as my patients look to me to provide them with the best care and treatments.
I take continuing education courses throughout the year to keep up with the most current, scientifically proven techniques and treatments. I am active in the Washington State Dental Association Academy and take advantage of the opportunity to learn from the best specialists in the state. Feel free to ask me about the last interesting course I took!

Outside the Office
When I'm not at work, you can find me spending time with friends and family. My family lives close, in Auburn and Maple Valley, and includes my nephew, Carter, and my niece, Kylie. My two dogs, a Shiba Inu puppy Kona, and a Border Collie/Lab rescue Luna, keep me busy with walks around the neighborhood and going to dog parks.
I enjoy challenging myself and am an avid runner and have completed six half-marathons and one full marathon. The outdoors are a passion of mine; I spend time outdoors gardening, walking my dogs, hiking, and enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
In the Community
I love being part of and contributing to our community. One of the most rewarding ways I have served has been to volunteer for free dental care days in the area. I am also involved with the great services offered by the YMCA. I've been honored to be part of this amazing nonprofit by teaching kids about oral health at the Early Learning Center and volunteering at the annual Healthy Kids Day.
Animals are a great passion of mine, and our office is proud to be a Corporate Sponsor for the Seattle Humane. Their work serving pets and families in our community is unparalleled, and we support their work completing families and rescuing pets. I am also involved with the YMCA annual fundraising campaign, Boots and Bowties Benefit Gala, and their Adopt-a-Family program for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
