Tawnie

Assistant Extraordinaire

My name is Tawnie. I am 24 years young and from Tri-Cities, Washington. I moved to the area 8 years ago and currently live in Seabeck with my son, boyfriend our two dogs and two cats. I have been in the dental field for 5 years and I absolutely love helping people feel good about their smiles!

Outside of work you can find me hiking with my dogs or kayaking on the bay. When the colder months hit, I love to bake goodies and curl up with a good book.

 

 

Kayla

Kayla

Assistant Extraordinaire

I was born and rasied in Washington and I've been working as a dental assistant for about 5 years now, and am loving it. My interest for dentistry blossomed when I was younger, and as a child, I always looked forward to my dental appointments and I hope to bring you the same sense of ease and comfort with your visits!

Outside the office you'll find me spending my time with family and friends. I absolutely love baking! Other hobbies I do as often as I can are hiking, camping, swimming & fishing.

I look forward to meeting you.

Michelle

Patient Care Coordinator & Insurance Specialist

Hello! My name is Michelle and I am your patient coordinator. I also process your insurance and handle your accounts.

I was born and raised in Washington and have lived here most of my life. I started in the dental field as an assistant in 2004. Honing my skills and changing direction a bit, my focus became the front office side of dentistry and in 2008 I achieved my degree in healthcare administration. My husband and I recently relocated back into the area from Japan. I am so glad to be involved with dentistry again after a three-year break.

I have two fur-babies, Boomer and Zuzu, both miniature dachshunds. We are involved with foster care and are very passionate about it. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and going on adventures.

Cathy

Hygienist

I was raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana and received my dental hygiene degree from Indiana University. Being a hygienist is the greatest job in the world to me. After many years in the field, I still get excited to go to work every day.

My husband Chuck brought us to Washington with his new job in 2008. This meant leaving behind 28 wonderful years in Colorado and our two adult children. Now I visit when I can and look forward to the kids’ annual pilgrimage to the Northwest at Christmas. My leisure time is often spent doing crafts, reading, cooking, and quilting. We have a cat named Blizzy that can be found in my lap during those reading sessions, or any time I sit still.
