Meet Our Team

Dr. Theron Manson purchased our practice in 2012 from the previous retiring dentist, James Soine DDS. We’ve kept the same philosophy of care as the previous owner, which is why so many of his patients have stayed with Dr. Manson after coming to our office for over 40 years.

Meet Theron Manson, DDS

Dr. Theron Manson was raised in British Columbia but now calls Seattle his home. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington. He and his wife Connie have two boys, and enjoy skiing, hiking, and traveling together.

When he isn’t at work, Dr. Theron Manson also enjoys coaching his sons’ athletic activities.

To stay abreast of the latest patient care techniques, Dr. Theron Manson completes as many as 200 hours of continuing education per year.

He has many areas of interest including sleep dentistry (for individuals with sleep apnea), Invisalign braces, and other orthodontic therapies.

Meet Connie Manson, DDS

Dr. Connie Manson grew up in Seattle and spent many happy years at the University of Washington obtaining a BA in English Literature and a BS in Biochemistry. She then found herself sitting next to Theron in dental school and the rest is history. Connie received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2002 and dedicated her career caring for under-served families all around Seattle.

Cheering on her boys at their sporting events is one of her all-time favorite activities. Camping, hiking, and enjoying a good book are also high on her list. If she is not in her garden, you may find her volunteering for the PTA, taking a slow run around the neighborhood, or trying to convince her husband that the backyard could sure use some chickens.
