Frequently asked Questions
Floss Boss is a mobile dental office making high-quality dentistry a convenience for your employees. We have three chairs inside the bus to offer a full range of services for more regular dental care. In being mobile and convenient, there’s less disruption to your employees’ schedules.
Roughly 320 million work and school hours are lost every year due to dental visits. The inconvenience of leaving work prevents people from regular dental care. But regular dental care is vital to overall health and Floss Boss believes convenience is key. Floss Boss makes regular dental care efficient and comprehensive. It’s a win-win. Your employees get regular dental care, improving their overall health, and you lose less hours of productivity each year.
We are a diverse, highly experienced team, who knows Seattle. Dr. Kim graduated from the University of Washington, and she mentors many UW dental students. The time was right for Dr. Kim to put her entrepreneurial skill to work to make dental cleanings more convenient and frequent for the busy patient. Dr. Kim values giving back to the community and has dedicated much of her time to Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown dental clinic and hopes the Floss Boss bus will continue to partner with nonprofits giving free dental care to those in need.
Anywhere! We serve large corporate clients, smaller businesses, communities, and neighborhoods. We might park for a week serving many employees of one company, and then park in a central location serving both a few small businesses and the local neighborhood. If the parking lot can fit us, we will serve that business or neighborhood with high-quality dental care. [Learn More]

After you book an appointment [on our website], you will fill out New Patient forms. Show up with a smile for your appointment, and one of our wonderful hygienists will perform a thorough exam and cleaning, and if needed, x-rays all from the comfort of our fully equipped Floss Boss bus.
Dr. Lina Kim is the founder and CEO of Floss Boss as well as the dentist on staff. Dr. Kim runs private practice offices in Magnolia and Laurelhurst, and has been a regular dentist providing care at Seattle Children’s Odessa Brown clinic.
Periodontal disease is a silent invader infecting the soft tissue surrounding the teeth. Untreated, gum disease will slowly erode the teeth and bones which support them. Gum disease is preventable, and forms because of poor oral hygiene. More frequent dental visits help stabilize and improve the effects of periodontal disease. Research shows every $1 spent on preventative care saves $8-$50 in later-stage care. Flexible, convenient dental care for your employees now ensures fewer long-term health problems later.
Floss Boss cares is our non-profit segment which provides free dental care to low-income communities and populations. [See where we will be and schedule an appointment]
Portable x-ray devices use more focused beams with less radiation than traditional devices, lead shields are not required. Lead vests will be provided upon request.
A new patient appointment and cleaning takes an hour. Additional services may add time.
If you require additional procedures, we can refer you to either one of our satellite offices in Laurelhurst or Magnolia in Seattle, or any other specialist that works best for you!
Being mobile, we bring the services to you! It can be quite difficult to find 2 to 3 hours out of the day to schedule and see your satellite dentist, so instead, we’re coming to you. With 1 hour long appointments and the ability to see 24 patients in one day, your employees and business can save plenty of valuable working hours!
