I was born and raised in Grand Haven, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree with distinction in Medical Anthropology. After considering numerous paths, I decided to pursue a career in dentistry because of the wide range of ways it can help transform people’s lives for the better.
I attended Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, WI, and graduated Magna Cum Laude. Between rigorous tests and honing my clinical skills, I fell in love with my fellow dental student, Dr. Kristen Billingsley. We have now been married 3 years and she served as an officer in the US Navy Dental Corps. It was her posting to Naval Base Kitsap that originally brought us to Silverdale.
After dental school, I received a scholarship to serve in the National Health Service Corps. This award allowed me to provide dental services to hundreds of Kitsap County residents with limited access to care. During this time, I also continued to work in private practice and focused on fine-tuning my skills. I love practicing dentistry with a multifaceted approach and stay up to date with extensive continuing education and an active membership to the Kitsap County Dental Society, Washington State Dental Association and American Dental Association.
I get so much joy when telling my patients that they’re cavity free after we worked together to develop a custom oral health regimen. I can feel my patients’ confidence skyrocket with their first smile after delivering a cutting edge cosmetic service. I get so much satisfaction when I can provide someone relief from an unexpected and sometimes debilitating toothache. At the core of my practice is my desire to find and utilize the most advanced techniques available to provide the best quality care to all of my patients. It is a dream to be practicing at a dental center that shares that same philosophy.
My wife and I live nearby with our goldendoodle dog, Otto, and are thrilled that we are expecting our first baby boy in November! We love the outdoors and traveling, and try to take advantage of all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer—especially hiking, climbing, skiing, and swimming. Food is also one of our passions and we enjoy cooking as well as sampling new, exotic foods in any restaurant.
Dentistry is not just my career, but also my passion. Rest assured that we are here to listen to you, collaborate with you, and provide you with the highest quality care. I am proud to join the Silverdale Dental Center Team and look forward to meeting you.
As of May 19th we are open for full-service, non-urgent dental treatment.
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
You will be notified via text, email or a phone call in regard to your upcoming visit and our new check-in procedures.
Our office will communicate with you to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. We will also take your forehead temperature when you arrive at our office.
We ask that you please wear a mask covering your nose and mouth when you arrive.
We want to minimize the number of patients in our waiting room and operatories, so unless necessary, please have accompanying people wait in the car during your appointment.
We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (360)692-9560.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Dr. Jason Niemeyer, Dr. Jeffrey Phillips and the rest of the SDC team
