Completely remodeled in March 2018, we are located at the bottom of Lea Hill in downtown Auburn at 1346 8th Street NE Suite 100, inside the Green River Professional Center.
Great Northwest Dental represents the merging of two separate dental offices originally owned by Dr. Richard McCabe and Dr. Dale Price. Dr. Joshua purchased Dr. McCabe's dental office in 2013. Dr. Lindsey joined the practice in 2016 following Dr. McCabe's retirement. Dr. Price's dental office was added to our practice in 2017. These existing practices have been serving the local area for more than 40 years.
Dr. Joshua Papac
Dr. Joshua Papac was born and raised here in Washington State. He grew up in the small town of Montesano, WA on the Olympic Peninsula where he developed a love for the outdoors and everything the great northwest has to offer. He is a proud Husky, earning both his bachelor's degree and Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Washington.
Dr. Papac has attended countless hours of continuing education courses and is a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the Seattle-King County Dental Society. Dr. Papac is highly trained in the latest technologies including modern aesthetic techniques, CAD/CAM dentistry, 3-D imaging, implant restoration, and comprehensive rehabilitation. Dr. Papac says the best part of his day is the interaction with his patients.
He has a passion for dental legislative and access to care issues. He is very involved with the Washington State Dental Association. He speaks with legislators in Olympia about these issues regularly and has even visited Washington, DC to meet with federal legislators and senators. He and his wife were recently featured in the Washington State Dental Association News for their activism.
He and his wife, Lindsey, whom he met while attending dental school have recently moved to the Lake Tapps area where they are busy starting their family. When they are not caring for their patients you will find them snow skiing, golfing, fishing and just enjoying being outdoors.
Dr. Lindsey Papac
Dr. Lindsey Papac has had a strong desire to help those in need since she was very young. A dental mission trip to Mexico solidified her decision to make a career out of dentistry. Following dental school, Dr. Lindsey spent seven years providing dental care in the greater Seattle area. In November 2016, she joined her husband at Great Northwest Dental and together they are excited to serve the Auburn and Lake Tapps community.
Dr. Papac is committed to continuing education and takes many advanced courses each year to enhance her skills to better serve the dental care needs of her patients and provide them with a gentle and comfortable dental experience.
Drs. Josh and Lindsey Papac met in dental school and married shortly after graduation. Together they have two boys. When they are not in the office you may find them skiing Crystal mountain, taking their two boys to Montana or watching the Husky and Seahawks football games.
