Dr. Brigitte Higgins
Dr. Brigitte Higgins is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Following dental school she completed a General Practice Residency at Swedish hospital (across the street from the office!) where she specialized in treating fearful and medically complex patients. Prior to UW she attended Whitman College where she earned a combined degree in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology.
After college, Dr. Higgins embarked on an immersion program in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala where she fell in love with dentistry. However, some may argue that she started her career in dentistry at age six when she helped her neighborhood friends pull their loose baby teeth. Her first job after residency was at a Community Health Clinic in Beacon Hill for low-income and underserved populations.
Dr. Higgins believes that a healthy mouth promotes whole-body health and enjoys attending dental courses focused on preventative care and minimally invasive treatments. Her practice philosophy is to treat patients with the care and respect she would give to her closest friends and family.
Dr. Higgins is a Northwest native. She was born in Portland, OR and has lived in Seattle since 2000. She currently resides in Greenwood with her husband and in her free time enjoys fiction novels, strong coffee, outdoor adventures, and planning future travels.
