Lead Dental Assistant
I help with the flow of the office, assist the doctors with procedures, and schedule hospital dentistry cases for patients who need extra TLC. I enjoy working with children and seeing them grow up to be healthy, happy young adults. I also love working with our team; we have wonderful doctors who are great with our patients and provide quality care.
I have been married since 1999 to my wonderful husband, Mike, and am a mother of five. I enjoy playing softball and being part of our school’s parent teacher committee. I love watching my kids play sports and being a part of their community.
I assist our doctors in the office, and in the operating room while they perform dental surgery. As an expanded functions dental assistant, I do cleanings, take X-rays, and assist doctors with exams. I love talking with kids and hearing all about their interests and activities. They always amaze me with their wittiness or their ability to adjust and trust our dental team. Interacting with kids, talking to them, and helping them to be great dental patients is what I love most.
My family loves camping, boating, fishing, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors. We also love cheering on our Blazers and Seahawks, and are always up for something new and fun.
I help patients with their hygiene and I assist the doctors with dental procedures. My favorite part of the job is the people that I work with, from the kids and their parents to the rest of my team. I love my job because working with children is so rewarding. We all work together to make a fun and positive environment for our patients.
In my spare time, I work with children in my church's day care and enjoy long boarding and snowboarding.
I want our young patients to feel as comfortable and at ease as possible whenever they’re in our office. My favorite part of my job is being able to learn something new every day to enhance my knowledge of dentistry. I love working with my team because everyone puts in an effort to be a team player and everyone is free-spirited, which opens the door to a warm and welcoming office.
I have been married for five wonderful years. In my spare time, I enjoy a nice run outside to clear my head. Family and friends are a big part of who I am today.

I’m the friendly smile that greets patients when they come into the office, and I'm the helpful voice on the phone when parents call to schedule appointments. As the newest member of our practice, I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know our family of patients and learning all about their interests. Working with children is always a lot of fun; you never know what they’re going to say next!
I am happily married to my best friend. We have three great kids, ages 14, 10, and 7. We are an athletic family, always walking, running, or riding scooters to the park, playing or watching football, or attending a school sporting event.
Patty is the welcoming face at the front desk who greets our patients as they arrive at our office. Patty helps patients with the check in and out process, verifies insurance, schedules and confirms appointments. Patty is super organized and keeps our day running smoothly. She has a big heart and treats everyone like family. When not at work you can usually find Patty at her sons school sporting events or relaxing with her family.
I am primarily responsible for the financial management of the practice. I also oversee day to day operations and make sure that our parents and patients have an excellent experience at our office. What I love best about my job is that it doesn't feel like work to me; I love to be here!
When I'm not at work, I'm often at a Girl Scout or Boy Scout activity with my kids. I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, and especially Dutch oven cooking.
