Our Dental Team
Meet the Smile Team
A dental team dedicated to personalized attention and a positive dental experience.
Dr. Larkin graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Biochemistry from Western Washington University. She then earned her Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Washington School of Medicine, where she researched metabolic determinants of stem cells under the associate director of the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine. She received the prestigious Cytotherapeutics scholarship and was honored to present her research and publications at several national research conferences.
Dr. Larkin took a quick sabbatical to raise her three strapping lads with her husband, Dana, on Camano Island. When not watching her sons play music or baseball, she loves photography, reading, and cooking, and recently took up running – finishing two half marathons in the last year (which she claims equals a marathon). She loves working with Dr. Keller, her brother, discovering and implementing innovative techniques to turn his vision of smiles into reality.

We take the time to get to know our patients so they look forward to visiting us in Kirkland.
There are not that many places left where you will be greeted with a smile and by people who take the time to chat, but that’s exactly what you will get at every visit with Smiles By Design.
Our compassionate team is with you every step of the way during your treatment. We happily make time to explain all procedures and give you advice.
Whether you’ve had a bad dental experience in the past or suffer from anxiety, our team will take the time to listen and provide the help you need (including sedation dentistry).
What a terrific find I made when I found Dr. Shawn Keller and his terrific staff at Smiles By Design.
