Frederick Worrell Caring For Patients Since 1982
“Dentistry for me is about helping others. Many dental problems hurt and dental fears are usually high, especially when there is pain involved. As a dentist, I have the ability to relieve that pain and reduce the fears, and in most cases, instantly improve the quality of life for people.”
“I learn every day and from every person that I meet. Every person is different and I am constantly exposed to new perspectives and ideas from different cultures, and I enjoy the constant learning I do in my practice. I believe that my caring nature and my desire to help others in the best way possible, and my constant practice of trying to see things from the shoes of the person I am treating, translates into patients who truly feel connected and cared for.” Dr. Worrell
A Brief History
Dr. Worrell was born in Richmond, Virginia and raised from the age of eight years old in St. Lucia, in the Caribbean. He is the second generation of dentists within his family. He has always had the utmost trust and complete absence of fear with dentists because he’s only known his parents as his dentists all his life! He enjoys building the same level of trustful, fearlessness, and happy relationships with people, just as his experiences have been at the dentist’s office.
Education and Training
Dr. Worrell After the completion of his dental program at the University of Washington School of Dentistry, Dr. Worrell returned to St. Lucia where he joined the dental practice of his mother and father, who were graduates of Georgetown University and University of Washington schools of dentistry. In Saint Lucia, Dr. Worrell’s passion for dentistry and patient education was fueled by a desire to help bring a confident smile to many of the islanders and tourists, and to promote the understanding that optimal general health begins with a happy smile. Upon his return to the states, Dr. Worrell worked as an associate in downtown Seattle and Redmond. After giving up on the wonderful Seattle commute, Dr. Worrell bought his practice and began his journey in private practice near by his home.
