Your caring Northgate dentist.

Dr. Roula C. Carmel grew up in Shoreline, WA, with parents who hail from Greece. She spent three years of her early childhood in Greece and is now fluent in Greek. Her curiosity in dentistry stemmed from her parents’ lack of access to dental care, which led them both to get dentures at a young age.

After completing her undergraduate degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Classical Greek at Western Washington University, Dr. Carmel pursued her passion for dentistry at the University of Washington School of Dentistry, where she graduated in 2017. During her time at dental school, she served as Class Secretary.

As a dentist, Dr. Carmel enjoys meeting patients from all walks of life and helping them achieve optimal oral health. Patients often describe her as friendly and knowledgeable.

Dr. Carmel considers the day her son was born as the best day of her life. Being a mother is her most rewarding job.

Our Office Has Gone Green

It is everyone's job to take care of the planet and each other. At Avila Dental, those are two jobs we take very seriously and strive to excel in.

Digital X-Rays

Our digital imaging technology means our patients are exposed to 90% less radiation, and we eliminate the need for toxic x-ray development chemicals.

Steam Sterilization

Steam-based, surgical-grade instrument sterilization contains no harmful chemicals and reduces water use. We do not use toxic cold-sterile solutions.

In-Office Recycling

We recycle as much as we can in our office, reuse packing material, and avoid purchasing plastic bottles or paper cups.

Green Cleaning

We use eco-friendly products for general housekeeping and biodegradable sterilization to keep our examination areas clean.

Amalgam Separator

Our special water filtration system prevents pollution of local waterways with the environmentally sound disposal of old mercury fillings.

Cloth, Not Paper

We use cloth sterilization pouches instead of disposable ones, which are safe and very effective. Additionally, we use cloth bibs instead of plastic-lined bibs.

LED Lights

Our operatory lights use DentalEZ, which is the first in the U.S. to design lights with 100% true direct LED technology.

Paperless Office

To avoid using paper, we keep all our records electronically. We are a 5-Star Certified EnviroStar business!
