Dr. Rattan Bains obtained her Doctorate in Dental Medicine, from Boston University in 2004. She has been working as a general dentist at Dental Care of Edmonds, for 18years. She is an active member of the American Dental Association and Washington State Dental Association. She received additional training through various continuing education programs for sleep dentistry, and is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine. While Dr. Bains still practices general dentistry, part time, She is most excited about Sleep dentistry. She has noticed nearly 30% of her patients in her general dentistry practice, grind their teeth and snore, gained weight year after year, developed high blood pressure and other health issues. She became passionate about talking to her patients about the importance of better sleep quality and the effects of poor sleep on their over all health. This passion has led to her partnering with Dr. Tanya Kushner, an expert in the field, and together they plan to “save lives”, one oral device at a time.
In her leisure time, she loves spending time with her family. She and her husband, who is a sleep specialist at Virginia Mason, have 2 kids, ages 12 and 14 and a golden doodle who is 5 years old. She loves the outdoors, hiking, skiing, paddle boarding, and traveling.
