Owner & Lead Dentist
Born in Seattle and raised in Puyallup, Dr. Eric Kitts received his undergraduate degree from Washington State University and his DDS from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Dr. Kitts began practicing dentistry in 2000, at his office in Richmond Beach. In 2011, Dr. Kitts built a brand-new, state-of-the-art dental facility located in the heart of downtown Edmonds. He moved his practice there and rechristened it as Soundview Family Dental. Dr. Kitts and his team have been happily practicing there ever since, enjoying the vast, beautiful views of ocean and sky, the coffee, art, travel, and antique shops, the excellent restaurants, the abundant floral planters, and the lovely Edmonds citizens, all of which make Edmonds such a wonderful, unique place to visit, to work, and to live.
Dr. Kitts treats each and every one of his patients with exceptional gentleness, care, integrity, and compassion, and this has made him one of Seattle Met’s top dentists for many years running. He has built a highly experienced team of dedicated, talented, and caring professionals, who treat each patient
