Patsy Yip
D.M.D.
General Dentist

About Me

Dr. Yip says, “When I was a teenager, my teeth were crooked and I was very self-conscious of my smile. To make matters worse, I had a sweet tooth and numerous cavities to show for it. I am grateful for my dentist, who fixed all my cavities and straightened my teeth. My dentist couldn’t get rid of my sweet tooth, but she gave me a beautiful smile that I proudly wear everyday. A smile is worth a thousand words. I want to help my patients achieve and maintain a healthy and confident smile. What motivates me to become a better dentist is that there is always more to learn and there is always room for improvement.”

Dr. Yip has a B.Sc. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of British Columbia. Her Dental Degree is from the McGill University School of Dentistry in Montreal. Upon graduation, she completed a one-year residency at the University of Connecticut. To keep up with the latest dental technology, she’s an active member of the American Dental Association and the Washington State Dental Association. She speaks Mandarin and Cantonese too!

Dr. Yip says, “I love learning languages. I am fluent in English, Cantonese and am working to improve my Mandarin, Spanish and French. I enjoy participating in local fairs and events as well as hiking, playing tennis and traveling.”
