Dr. James Gagliardi

Dr. James Gagliardi Practicing the dental arts is my way of using my particular gifts to give back to society and help people live healthier and longer lives. Having worked with so many unique people every day has enriched my life in more ways than I could have imagined. I am truly lucky to serve the families here!

Dr. Gagliardi attained my BS in Zoology from Washington State University, graduating Cum Laude. And for dental school, he attended the University of Washington, graduating in 1978. It has always been important to him to stay on the cutting edge of research and technology. Taking continuing education is the best opportunity he has to ensure he’s providing our patients with the best services that dentistry has to offer. Dr. Gagliardi is also in an ongoing implant study club. He has taken well over a thousand hours of dental continuing education throughout his career!

Dr. Gagliardi says it’s very gratifying to be able to be a part of changing our patients’ lives by what we do here in our office. After 31 years in practice, it’s been amazing to watch the children in our practice grow up and to have children of their own! He prides himself on providing his patients with state-of-the-art dental services. He worked to become a certified Invisalign® Premier Provider and continue to build on his knowledge base with continuing education through Invisalign’s course offerings.

Born and raised in Tacoma, Dr. Gagliardi enjoys being a part of this community. Fircrest is a wonderful, close-knit town, and he’s proud to serve the families who live here. At home, his family includes his wife and four wonderful children. Dr. Gagliardi’s hobbies include golf, cycling, skiing, swimming, and playing music. He even used to be in a rock band!

Let's Get Started

What People Are Saying

I have never felt so welcomed and relaxed at a dentist office. Everyone here is so friendly and accommodating. They really make you feel apart of them. They are beyond willing to make sure you are comfortable and always take the time to understand your needs and expectations.

Christina B. From Yelp

I have never been a fan of dentist they scare me! But from the second I walked in every staff member made me feel welcome and they all made sure my experience was second to none!!! Is it weird im looking forward to going back!

Tami M. From Yelp

Through the whole process, every one of them continually asked if I was okay and asked if there was anything they could do for me. The procedure didn't hurt a bit, thanks to the doctors listening to their patient. A rare find today. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and efficiency of this office!

Loretta L. From Yelp

Amazing! Had an emergency, walked into their office, BOOM! Instantly taken care of and was provided with some of the best care I have ever experienced. Staff is friendly and genuine and their fun! My teeth will definitely see brighter days with this crew!

Nicole M. From Google +

I am kind of a fearful patient. They talk to me and treat me like a person explain everything well. They are reassuring, and let me know if I need a break. They manage my fear.

Andy L. From Google +

Light Dental seems to be much more efficient, with up to date tools and technology than other places my friends go to. I am happy to find a place that can handle both kids and adults, and make our dental experiences easy, and stress free.

Flaig K. From Google +

Great place to go to have your dental experience. I'm relocating to another state and I'm considering flying back to the state of Washington to see this dental office for any future work, cleaning or recommendations. I trust this place and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

Leif Q. From Google +

The doctor and the staff are very courteous and extremely professional. They do everything they can to make me feel comfortable during my appointments.
