Dentist – Federal Way, WA

Get to Know Dr. Drew Beaty

Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

In 1994, Dr. Beaty had to undergo extensive upper and lower jaw surgery, as well as in-depth orthodontic treatment. He was in engineering school at the time, but the experience was eye-opening for him. Dentistry seemed to click into place as a career option out of the blue – and decades later, he hasn’t looked back!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

After completing his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering from Tulane University in New Orleans, Dr. Beaty attended dental school at Northwestern University in Chicago. He’s also extensively trained in sedation dentistry and proudly completed all 9 levels of postgraduate education at the prestigious Kois Center for Dental Excellence in Seattle. Today, he still takes over 100 hours of continuing education per year, which is four times the amount required by the Washington State Department of Health.

Community work plays a role in his life as well; for the past eight years, he has participated in a dental outreach program in Jamaica, helping to care for underserved populations.
