Dr. Kristi Donley, DDS

Meet Dr. Donley

I was born and raised in the Midwest until my family was transferred to the Seattle area in 1990.  I finished high school at Eastside Catholic and then attended college at the University of Washington.  I then attended the University of the Pacific in San Francisco and obtained my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree, with honors, in 2000.  Afterwards, I returned to the Seattle area to attend the General Practice Residency at the University of Washington, which is focused on providing dental care to patients in a hospital setting.  I practiced in clinics at the UW Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, the Veterans Administration Hospital, Children’s Hospital, and Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic.  After my residency, I then went on to receive my specialty certificate in Endodontics at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

I was happy to return back home in 2004, where I provided endodontic care in Issaquah at my former private practice, Eastside Endodontics, and part time at the Veterans Administration Puget Sound Medical Center in Seattle. At the VA hospital, I have also had the pleasure of teaching General Practice Residents as well as Endodontic Residents from the University of Washington. 

In September 2021, I took on a new position as the Program Director of the VA General Practice Residency and I am excited to become a part of Dr. Ball’s team at Sammamish Endodontics as an associate! My goal is to continue to provide quality, patient-focused care to our community.

I am also the proud mother of two middle-school-aged boys, whom seem to be growing up way too fast!  They love cooking with me, making me play video games with them (because they know I’ll lose), and participating together in Boy Scout activities.

I am a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, the Seattle King County Dental Society, the American Association of Endodontists, and the Washington State Association of Endodontists.
