In 2004, I began a career in the dental field and worked as a dental assistant for 8 years. At the end of those 8 years I had completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Washington. I started working in Dr. Phil’s office in the summer of 2007 as a part-time dental assistant, becoming a full-time employee in 2009 to 2011.
I returned to school in 2011 at the Seattle Central Community College where I received degree in Dental Hygiene. After graduation I have felt blessed to come back and be employed as a dental hygienist in this office, which I refer to as my “dental family”. I love the unity of the office and how everyone is very passionate in striving together to provide the best care for our patients.
My goal is to provide personalized care for our patients doing so with gentleness and kindness. I wish for all of our patients to have a basic understanding of their periodontal health and how to help them achieve optimal dental health in this area. I also feel passionate about teaching our patients the link between oral-dental health and systemic or overall body health.
My outside interests include exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my family and friends. I love being with my dog, an American Eskimo Pomeranian named Luna. I love to go on spontaneous road trips and I also love running, yoga, a cup of coffee in the morning and watching the sunrise.
