Steven Paige, DDS

Steven Paige, DDS

Steven Paige, DDS is the founder of Affordable Dental Care. This company was established to provide standard-of-care dentistry in a comfortable environment at greatly reduced fees. Throughout the years Affordable Dental Care has partnered with many dentists from a very diverse group of professionals.

Dr. Paige graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University in 1975 with a degree in engineering technology and continued his education to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery in 1986 from Marquette University. He has used his knowledge of materials to enhance his passion in dentistry.

Dr. Paige has been placing dental implants for years and enjoys this part of dentistry. He feels that no other discipline of dental work changes patient ability to eat as comfortably after tooth loss. He also holds a permit for intravenous conscious sedation in order to help patients who exhibit dental anxiety.

Dr. Paige has a wife and three children and enjoys woodworking projects when time allows.

Gabor Klade, DDS

Dr. Klade is the co-founder of Affordable Dental Care,  which was established in 1996. He completed his undergraduate work at Loyola University of Chicago in 1982 and went on to earn a DDS degree from Marquette University School of Dentistry. Upon graduation in 1986, he began his dental career at Gentle Dental in Chicago under the mentorship of Dr. Robert Hessberger. After eight years, he joined Dr. Steven Paige in the Seattle area to further expand general dentistry skills and business opportunities. Nearly thirty years later, Dr. Klade continues to offer his extensive training and experience to each patient’s treatment plan, tailoring to each one’s individual needs.

Born in Budapest, Hungary and immigrating to Chicago in 1971, Dr. Klade is happily married and has an adult daughter who is currently a college student. An ordained deacon, he serves at the church, in the local community, and in the international mission field. Whether going on a mission trip to Mexico, Romania, or Guatemala, or simply serving locally with Medical Team International offering dentistry, he serves with passion and kindness. Other areas of interest include: hiking, photography, and swimming. And he has a keen love of good food, international travel, and the ultimate pastry shop!

Jacqueline Tuazon, DDS

Jacqueline Tuazon, DDS

Dr. Tuazon is originally from the Philippines and moved to Kennewick, WA in 1990 until she graduated from Kamiakin High School.

She graduated from University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and a minor in chemistry. She worked for her sister, who is a dentist in California, for two years. She learned firsthand to be an office manager, billing administrator, treatment planner, and dental assistant. She then attended NYU College of Dentistry, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery. She went through residency at Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, NY.

She began practice in 2008 in Washington. Since coming back to Washington, she has been volunteering as a dentist in Kennewick for Grace Clinic. After she practiced with several different offices, she finally found a home with Affordable Dental Care in 2013.

In her free time, Dr. Tuazon enjoys amateur photography, baking, and dancing.

There are currently no specials at this location.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings replace silver amalgam fillings with tooth-colored composite resin material and restore the natural color and appearance of your teeth.


Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth, and are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the bone, which then have crowns placed on them once the bone has healed around the implant.

Root Canal Therapy

At some point, most people will undergo a root canal. Our goal always is to save your natural teeth and prevent the need for implants, bridges, and partial dentures.
