We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Dental Hygienists



The best part of my job is establishing relationships with our patients while helping them improve their oral health. I enjoy providing thorough care to the wonderful people that make their way to my chair. It’s important to me that patients are comfortable and have a positive dental experience at every visit. It makes me happy when patients leave smiling.

I have 2 wonderful teenage sons. In my spare time I love being with family, going to my son's sporting events and spending a lot of time out on Lake Tapps.




My mission as a dental hygienist is to provide exceptional care for patients to achieve optimal oral health. I believe in not just cleaning teeth, but giving my patients the tools and education they need to make a positive impact on their overall health. The best part of my job is the relationships I build with my patients. I love what I do, getting to know and educate my friends and patients is a real passion of mine.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our dog, and our newborn daughter.




I have been a dental hygienist with this office since 2008. I strive to provide kind and caring dental treatment to all of my patients. I enjoy putting patients at ease and helping them achieve an optimal healthy smile. I always want your visit to be positive and take pride in treating my patients like family.

When I’m not at the office you will likely find me on the sidelines being a soccer and baseball mom for my three boys. I enjoy visiting National parks with my family, kayaking, vegetable and flower gardening, or curling up with a good book.

Dental Assistants



I work side-by-side with our doctors in all procedures. This entails getting the room ready before a procedure, and then providing chairside assistance, helping the doctor and supporting the patient. It’s important that each person in our care know we’re here to help them by listening to their concerns. I’m always focused on a patient’s comfort, and will do all I can to make sure every visit is a wonderful, comfortable experience. It is a good feeling when a patient smiles and thanks me at the end.

I love spending time with my family. I am a proud grandmother of four grandchildren and love being with them. I also enjoy crafting, sewing, gardening, and decorating. 




It’s a joy to help people find their smiles again. When someone has dental health problems, or is in pain, they don’t smile. Here, we make it possible for them to smile and laugh comfortably. I work closely with our doctors, as they tend to our patients. From seating a patient and preparing them for a dental procedure, to ensuring they are comfortable throughout the process, I’m always aware of their needs, and make sure they feel safe and relaxed while with us. It’s great when a patient who was a bit hesitant when they arrived is smiling at the end of their visit.

I currently live in the outskirts with my husband, Robert, and our three children. We have a little family farm, where we raise chickens, turkeys, and ducks.




I am the newest dental assistant in this office and I have been a dental assistant since 2005. I can say I have finally found my dental home! What sets South 288th Family Dentistry apart is the doctors and staff.  We strive to make your dental experience the best. I am always amazed with the time each doctor spends one on one with their patient to fully understand each individual’s dental needs and concerns. The doctors skill to educate and find the best treatment plan for every patient is a decision made out of care and compassion. Here we treat everyone how we would want a family member to be treated. 

Outside of being with my dental family, you can find me cheering on my daughter in Taekwondo and soccer.  I am an avid crafter and enjoy exploring the PNW with family and friends. 



Administrative Staff



I love helping our great patients gain healthy smiles. It’s a joy to work in a dental practice where everything we do is with an emphasis on patient care and individualized needs. We truly put our patients first in everything we do, and they thank us with their smiles. As the office manager, I oversee the administrative function of the practice and ensure our wonderful practice runs smoothly. I feel lucky to work with such a professional and compassionate administrative team. 

I’m the proud mother of two delightful young men. They keep me very busy, like kids often do. In my free time, my fiance and I enjoy being with family, friends and the outdoors.
