I am here to welcome and care for you with the respect you deserve. My dental career began in orthodontics as a chairside assistant in 1988. My favorite seasons are fall, winter, and spring. I love living in the Pacific Northwest because of the fresh air, rain, and beautiful beaches. I enjoy paper crafting with friends.

Michelle – Financial Coordinator

I’ve been working in dentistry since 2013. After gaining knowledge in the clinical environment, I now specialize in insurance, billing, and financials. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. If I have free time, I enjoy sewing projects, watching historical dramas, and picking up interesting factoids. Next time you see me, I’d love to hear any weird facts that you know.

I have been a dental assistant since 1992. I received training from Puget Sound Skills Center, Lake Washington Technical College and I have years of continuing education. I always listen to our patients’ concerns and make them feel as comfortable as I can during their dental treatment. My two children, Valerie and Derek, fill my life with joy and laughter. As a family, we enjoy hiking in the mountains, toes in the sand at Long Beach, local theme festivals, and classic car shows.

I am proud to say I joined this practice in 1990 after completing my dental training while in high school. Our progressive approach to dentistry has kept life fun, ever-changing, and challenging. I love our approach to dentistry and the great patients who have become friends. Being a native of the Pacific Northwest, I love the color green and am always in awe of nature. I enjoy outdoor activities and am raising my children with that same appreciation. If you take a walk with me, be prepared for me to stop without warning to snap a picture of something that caught my eye.

I have been a dental hygienist at this office for over 20 years. I love the great patients and team I get to work with every day. I am blessed to be able to provide our patients with the latest technology, training, and science available. During my “off” time I hang out with my awesome hubby and two teenage girls. We love to go on adventures, and my favorite place is Disney! I keep busy helping care for my elderly parents, hiking, watching movies, and enjoying our beautiful deck with friends and family.
