Making smiles in Friday Harbor wider and brighter!
Welcome to Bo Turnage's office, conveniently located right next to the ferry landing. Here, our team knows that dental health is not just about white smiles: it’s about having strong teeth and healthy gums. Our mission is to help our patients accomplish these goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.
We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them necessary comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about dental treatment, so we created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. By combining the latest technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients the best care in the Islands.
Bo Turnage, DDS
Hailing from Hollywood, CA, Dr. Bo Turnage brings a bit of movie star glam combined with classic island hospitality to all his patients. He moved to San Juan Island in 2003 after practicing dentistry for the Hollywood stars, and later in Ellensburg, WA. With a particular flourish for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Turnage has the most up-to-date technology and practices in the San Juan Islands. Be it a toothache or a routine cleaning, you're sure to enjoy your dental experience whether you choose to drink in the stunning views, play X-Box, or watch our ceiling-mounted cable TVs. It's Bo's firm belief that dentistry shouldn't be an unpleasant experience! Luxurious atmosphere doesn't mean luxurious prices—Bo offers some of the most competitive rates in the Islands.
