Sharing his expertise so you can smile more.

Dr. Lintakoon is a graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He was the owner of a sought-out and successful private practice for more than 17 years in Austin, Texas before relocating to the Pacific Northwest.

Since moving, he has acted as a clinical instructor and dentist at Lake Washington Institute of Technology. He is an affiliate faculty member of the University of Washington’s School of Dentistry, educating dental students during their third and fourth years.

He chose dentistry as he enjoys helping people restore their smiles’ look and function. He truly treats patients as family and continues to do so through conservative, modern dentistry.

Dr. Lintakoon is fluent in multiple languages, including Mandarin, Cantonese, and the Teochew dialect of Chinese; he speaks Thai and Lao as well. He resides in Bellevue with his wife and two daughters.

Our Humanitarian Efforts
Here are some organizations and events our doctors have supported.

I owe Dr. John Lintakoon a deep debt of gratitude. After getting unnecessarily ambitious and prohibitively expensive treatment plans from two other dentists, I met Dr. John Lintakoon of Bellevue Hilltop Dental. John carefully examined my many missing, endangered, and often painful teeth, and given my age and limited financial circumstances, conceived a more sensible plan that I could afford and that has continued to serve my dental needs very well.
