Trauma Sensitive Dentistry in Bremerton and Banbridge Island

Bainbridge Island sign that lights up to make it easy to see when coming to office for a traumaDentistry involves working in an area of the body that is highly sensitive and private. The work involves the hardest tissue found in the body and the possible level of pain is increased by the short distance nerves travel to the brain. The traumas that involve the mouth exist in a large percentage of people. Dr. Stanley’s work with relational healing of trauma speaks to this population. 

Traditionally, dental professionals have relied on a pharmacological approach to treating this patient population. With Dr. Stanley’s approach, we have been able to treat people – without drugs – that would never have been able to sit in a dental chair. The goal of this work not only allows the dental professional to complete work for the patient, but it addresses the root of the issue as it appears. 

Our Values

Our dental practice has always had a core value of health. While dental health has been the primary objective, the human cannot be cut into pieces without consequences. By expanding the scope of what we are responsible for chair side and having strategies to deal with stress as it develops in our patients we are entering a new level of what can accomplished in the dental office.   

If you’ve experienced trauma associated with dental work in the past, give our office a call and let us help you receive the care you deserve.

At Current Dental, we describe our approach as “holistic dentistry” because we are open-minded to other modalities of treatment that may not always be considered in traditional dentistry.

Patient Testimonials


The talented team at Current Dental are professional, positive, and pleasant! Jim and Dr. Verharen have been my providers for the last 7 years and I can’t think of a better place to go for “over-the-top” dental care!


Ok, first time to the dentist in 15 years!!! I was super nervous and really scared but Crystal my hygienist made me feel super comfortable and talked me through EVERYTHING!!! Great staff, great people!


I had such an amazing experience! Every one in the office was extremely kind and intelligent. My dental hygienist was very educational and gentle. My dentist was also very pleasant and complementary! I look forward to my next visit!


I am so glad that my husband and I found Current Dental when we moved to Bremerton a year ago. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff and very convenient location.


I have the biggest fear of the dentist. I was putting off having to find a new one that I could trust to work with me and be tolerant of my silly phobia. They’re the best!
