Meet Your Tacoma Dentists

DR. LESLIE WHALEN

Dr. Leslie Whalen

Dr. Whalen was raised in Gig Harbor, WA and is pleased to be practicing dentistry back in her community. She completed her undergraduate studies at Western Washington University and earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Marquette University School of Dentistry. She completed advanced training in general dentistry through the Northwest Dental Residency in Yakima, WA.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Whalen enjoys playing tennis, hiking, cooking and spending time with family and friends.

‘Helping others has always been a passion of mine. Nothing makes me feel better than a client saying "thank you" as they leave with a smile on their face. Every year I spend countless hours attending various continuing education courses so that our office can continue to provide the most advanced and up-to-date patient care possible.

DR. Christopher tobler

I grew up primarily in Southern California, spending most of my time at the beach. I loved to paint and draw and worked as a graphic designer both in high school and then in college at BYU in Utah. Eventually, I changed course and pursued dentistry, which took me to Indiana University to get my DDS degree.

After working for several years as a graphic designer, I realized that dentistry was a better fit. I love the people I get to associate with every day. That includes both my patients and incredible team!

I’m married to the love of my life, and we have two boys. I still enjoy spending time at the beach or in the ocean, but I equally love spending time in the mountains and on trails. I play the guitar and the piano and adore just about any kind of music.

DR. Jacob hino

Dr Jacob Hino - Tacoma Dentist

Dr. Hino was born in Hawaii and then grew up mostly in Yakima, WA. He completed his undergraduate studies at Western Washington University where he also competed on the Track and Field team in the pole vault event.

During his undergraduate education, Dr. Hino spent time volunteering in various dental settings, where he discovered his passion for helping people achieve their optimal oral health. He then earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Washington and completed additional advanced training in general dentistry in San Diego, CA.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Hino enjoys watching and playing sports, running, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. He is excited to serve his community in Tacoma!

The office staff is great. Professional and made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. Dr. Whalen and her staff are top notch. I have recommended many people and they have all been pleased and the practice on all levels has exceeded their expectations.

Raise your hand if you're afraid of going to the dentist?Yeah, me too.But the minute I walked into Soundview Dental Arts, all of my fears subsided with the amazing and compassionate care from Dr. Winskill and the rest of the Soundview crew.Oh, and let's not forget the stunning views of Puget Sound that are panoramically placed front of you.

He’s the best in the Northwest! I hated going to the dentist because of childhood trauma associated with dental visits. I was referred by a friend that he was great and I can testify that he is great. He’s entire crew is! No judgement all remarks or unnecessary treatments, just what you need. If you don’t want to take out your wisdom teeth and they are healthy, you don’t have to be pressured to take them out unless you have to. Love love love you Dr Winskill 🤗

Years ago I used a dentist that basically did horrible work and as a result most of what he did has been redone. I've been going to Dr Winskill for the last 11 years. His work is second to none. As a result, I have sent him several referrals and they continue to be his patients. One of his hygienists, Elaine, is very skilled and does a great job cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend Dr Winskill and his staff.
