You can Contact Us:
- by phone at (360) 385-3100. Dr. Chuljian also has a cell phone which is not on all the time, but you can try him after hours at 531-1762. He’s been known to drop the phone in a river, lose it in the woods (three times and counting), and drop it out of an airplane (only once per phone, obviously ). However, he’s an enthusiastic texter when he can find the phone, and that’s often a better way to reach him than voicemail. You can also leave a message on his home phone at 385-6506, but he’s almost never there—if he’s not at work, he’s probably working on the tree farm. Yes, he has no life.
- by mail at:
David T. Chuljian, DDS
1303 Washington Street
Port Townsend, WA 98368
- in person, across from the Port Townsend U.S. Post Office
- by email through filling out the form below. This doesn’t work all of the time, and you can try email: It’s firstname.lastname@example.org, except that’s NOT what it is. Take out one of the r’s (it’s a one-R’ed parrot) and the I in fish (there is no I team, nor in my email address). It’s an 8 letter email address from the good old days. By describing it thus, I hope to foil spam bots, but since they’re smarter than I am, it probably won’t help. A fair amount of email gets screened out before I get it, so if you don’t hear from me in a few days, try another method.
Monday we usually schedule only hygiene (cleaning) patients, and hours are 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday we see patients from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., supposedly with a lunch break from1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. More typically, the office might be closed for 15 – 30 minutes somewhere in there, or maybe not at all on a hectic day. Thursday we close at 1:00 pm so Dave can play golf. Actually, he generally uses this time towok on his tree farm out in Chimacum, planting trees, clearing brambles, and using power tools way too close to his fingers. (He still has all ten as of this typing.)
We occasionally reverse the Monday/Friday schedules to attend continuing education.
- If you are in pain, have broken a tooth or a lost crown, or think you have an infection, let the front desk person know that you need an Emergency Appointment. We will work you into the schedule that same day in most cases.
- If you are new to our practice and do not have an urgent problem, you should request a New Patient Routine Exam. This is usually a 40 minute appointment, and will include any needed X-rays, a periodontal examination, and photos if indicated, but will not include the actual cleaning. If you have recently had X-rays taken, contact your prior dentist and ask them to forward the films to our office. They may ask you to fill out a records release form, available at this link.
- If you have always had good dental health, get regular cleanings, and have no periodontal problems, you can probably schedule a new patient exam and cleaning at the same time. Try to schedule yourself as the last patient before lunch in case we run over a little. Also it will really help if you fill out the Registration and Health History forms on the Online Forms page.
