Dr. Maurissa Kiefer is a California native who has fallen in love with all that the PNW has to offers. Outside of the office you can find Dr. Kiefer spending time with her family and friends.

Why I did I choose to join Love Your Smile?
Partnering with Love Your Smile has been one of the best decisions I have made in my career. The office provides a very unique opportunity for its patients with multiple specialties under one roof—from General and Cosmetic Dentistry to dental Implants and Orthodontic care. This type of enhanced environment allows for improved communication between the dental professionals and with the patient. This provides each patient with a customized care plan suited to their needs created by the collaboration between the dental team.
Neal Raval, DDS, MSD, PLLC
A Seattle dentist specializing in periodontics and implant dentistry.
Dr. Neal Raval was born in Germany and attended his schooling in both Germany and later in England. In England, he completed his pre-dental and dental education in Oxford and then later at the University of Birmingham.
After graduating, Dr. Raval worked for the Nation Health Service in England and then moved to Germany and worked with his father, who inspired him as a child. When he was young, our expert dentist spent time in his father’s office and developed a fondness for working with his hands. It was in Germany that he developed his passion for periodontal surgery, dental implants, and comprehensive dentistry.
Dr. Raval moved to the U.S. in 2009. He now lives in Seattle with his family and completed his residency in periodontics and implants. Notably, he attained his Master in Science in Dentistry by participating in groundbreaking research that changed the way dentists perform implant dentistry.
Our Seattle dentist views his work as a hobby and continues to excel in his field. He has been president of various dental groups, lectured nationally and internationally, and worked with many study clubs. He is part of some prestigious organizations, including:
Away from the office, he loves spending time with his two girls. They make breakfast together each morning and enjoy attending local family events!
‘‘My intent is only to educate you on your oral and general health. If you need any care, I will be here the entire time to make sure you get all the support and care you need."
Meet the people behind the widest and healthiest smiles in Seattle, WA.
I'm so glad I saw Dr. Raval and his team. Everyone on the team is responsive, caring, and it was very easy to entrust them with what I knew would be a very expensive but necessary procedure. Everything from the scheduling, to the consult, to the procedure was done professionally, all the way. Thanks for the awesome and effective care!
