Registered Dental Hygienist
Having been with our practice since 1985, I’ve had the honor of providing oral hygiene care to the best people in the world: our patients! I love how our team works with each patient to find the dental solutions to that individual’s specific needs, all the while building relationships with them. I provide dental cleanings, take X-rays, and administer anesthetics. A lot of my day is spent on patient education, helping people understand why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy and how best to do so between visits here. It’s very rewarding when a patient comes for a recall visit and I can see the improvement in their oral health. I’ve been married for 37 years and have two children and three grandchildren. Time with my family is important to me, and I’m an active member of my church, as well.
Certified Dental Assistant
Getting to know our wonderful patients and their families, and giving them the gentle, respectful, professional care they deserve, are what I love best about my work day. I’ve been at Highlands Family Dental Center for 10 years, and have had the opportunity to get to know and build relationships with many great people. We have many patients who’ve been with our practice for generations, and that’s a testament to the patient-focused care we consistently provide. My day is spent providing patient care, taking X-rays and impressions, and sterilizing our equipment. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two sons, Tyler and Andrew. I volunteer in both of their schools, run 5K’s, hike, and camp.
Certified Dental Assistant
My favorite part of my job is knowing that I have helped our patients by providing a valuable health service. Many times they are anxious about having treatment done and it feels great to see them leave with a smile and not afraid anymore. Working with my team is great! We are always willing to help each other and contribute to the smooth running of the office. I was born and raised in the area. I like to get to know new places and try new things. I like spending time with my family and sharing memorable moments together.
Billing Coordinator, Registerd Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field since 1995. I love my job because I get to interact with and help patients get the care they need. I enjoy sharing with them the importance of prevention and early treatment so they can stay healthy. I love working in this office because we all work together as a team for the benefit of our patients, and we keep each other on our toes! Outside the office, I like spending time with my family and puppy.
After 10 years in customer service, I decided I wanted to do something more meaningful, and working at Highlands Family Dental Center allows me to help hundreds of patients attain and maintain optimal oral health. I also love the team I work with. We are like a big family! And I love gaining knowledge, with this position I never stop learning! On a personal note, my family is my world. They mean everything to me. I’m a daughter to the most amazing parents, sister of three older brothers and full time dog Mom to Biggie Smalls and Tippy. I love a good Seattle rainy day! I'd say being able to meet people and build relationships is one of the greatest blessings in life.
