Services We Provide
DR. ACOSTA John
Dr. John Acosta has been in the dental profession since 2001 and loves what he does. It shows in the quality of work he provides and in his caring attitude toward each patient: treating everyone as an old friend or relative, easily making patients laugh, and making sure they are well-educated in the treatments required. This is why patients repeatedly come back to see him. Dr. Acosta is dedicated to all his patients and always tries his best to accommodate them by providing a flexible schedule to meet after hours and for emergencies. He is also Invisalign® certified, providing his patients with the orthodontic care and the beautiful smiles they deserve.
Born in Honolulu, HI, to a father who served in the U.S. Army, Dr. Acosta has had the opportunity to live in many parts of the world, including Guam, Germany, Arizona, and South Korea. His family finally decided to settle near Seattle, WA.
Dr. Acosta lived a majority of his life in Washington. He graduated high school from a small town called Spanaway and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington in Seattle. He is a die-hard Huskies fan and loves to follow most professional sports from the Northwest. He’ll support Bay Area teams, but not over his beloved Seattle teams.
Dr. Acosta decided to get his dental degree from the University of the East in Manila, Philippines. It was an eye-opening experience for him to spend time in the country his parents were born, and he received a lot of hands-on experience. He once heard a fellow dentist say that a dental degree gives you the license to continue learning, and he has followed that idea ever since.
