Our Doctors

Dr. EmmaLeigh Gordon, DDS

Dr. EmmaLeigh Gordon is originally from Plymouth, Michigan, a suburb of Ann Arbor, Michigan. She moved to Seattle 10 years ago and has made her home in Washington. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Michigan. After graduating from the University of Michigan, she worked as an office manager for a dental practice and fell in love with the field of dentistry. She discovered that dentistry combined her passion for helping others with her lifelong hobby of arts and crafts.

Dr. Gordon continued her education at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. She did extra clinic rotations through the DECOD clinic where she learned how to provide care for patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She was a peer mentor in this clinic and taught other dental students how to provide care to patients with disabilities.

Dr. Gordon is passionate about holistic health for her patients with an emphasis on clear aligner therapy and sleep apnea. She is a member and has trained with the AIR Institute residency group that focuses on the integration of Airway, Invisalign, and Restorative dentistry, an integrative approach to treating the whole patient. In her free time, Dr. Emma enjoys spending time with her husband and three kids, Cedar, Aralia, and Fox in addition to gardening and reading.

Dr. Brandon Walker, DDS

Dr. Brandon Walker is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry where he excelled in operative, fixed and removable prosthodontics. He proudly served in the United States Marine Corps from 2005-2015 and earned a B.S. in Public Health from American Military University. He is an avid member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the Academy of Operative Dentistry with a special interest in microscope-facilitated biomimetic restorative dentistry.

⁣⁣As a natural educator, Dr. Walker has distinguished himself as an instructor on additive direct composite dentistry. He enjoys speaking to students and faculty at universities throughout the country, where curiosity and the passion to learn are high. Dr. Walker is the Co-Founder of the Institute of Injection Overmolding in Seattle, Washington where he facilitates the training of clinicians throughout the country in modern, multidisciplinary direct composite dentistry.

No stranger to the dentist, Dr. Walker finds joy in helping patients find comfort and confidence in their dental experience. Throughout his military career, he experienced a great deal of dental trauma and chronic pain. His personal challenges afford him a unique perspective as a dental provider with a high level of empathy for his patients. His commitment to patient-centered, high-integrity care is exemplified by the Marine Corps motto, “Always Faithful.”

A native Pacific Northwesterner, Dr. Walker enjoys traveling, hiking, bicycling, snowboarding, and most of all re-experiencing the joys of life through the eyes of his lively four-year-old son, Atlantus.
