Meet the Team





I joined Northwest Smile Design in 2002. I assist Dr. Peterson with many of our patients’ restorative procedures. I enjoy working with people and being able to make them feel comfortable while in our office. Smile makeovers are the best part of my job; giving someone his or her smile back is very rewarding.

I am a mother of three and married to the greatest friend and father. We enjoy the outdoors and working in our yard.




Dental Hygienist

I have worked with Dr. Peterson at Northwest Smile Design since 2007 providing 19 years as a hygienist that has provided a wide variety of experience. I look forward to meeting you. When not at work, I enjoy family activities, movies, game nights and being on the go. I have been married nearly 25 years, live in the Marysville area and have 2 children. A daughter that has graduated from WSU and a son, currently a high school student, proudly participating in the NJROTC program.

My favorite travel destination is a toss up between St. Thomas, USVI, Atlantis-Bahamas and Hawaii.




Dental Hygienist

I began my career in dentistry in 1994 as an assistant. In 1997 I became a dental hygienist. I love getting to know my patients and their families and helping them to maintain and improve their oral health. The care I provide is customized for each patient and his or her unique smile. I also enjoy working with a team that is 100 percent committed to taking care of our patients. As a team, we treat our patients and each other with consideration and respect.

At home, I have two little girls that I spend all of my free time with. We enjoy riding our horse and being outdoors with our animals.




Dental Hygienist

I love people and I enjoy working with them to achieve their maximum oral health. For 24 years, I’ve been a hygienist at Northwest Smile Design, and the smiles I’ve seen our patients achieve have been truly amazing. I enjoy being a part of this office because of the high level of care that is given and the quality of work that is provided. Dr. Peterson and the rest of our team truly care about people and taking care of their dental needs.

I am married to my best friend, Todd. Together we have two beautiful daughters: Lauren, who is a Senior at WSU, and Madison, who is a Freshman at WSU. As a family we enjoy golfing (my girls and husband are far better than I am!), and our annual week at Cannon Beach, Oregon, each summer.




Office Manager

I have been Dr. Peterson's Office Manager since 2014 and am very proud to be a part of the Northwest Smile Design Team. I started in dentistry in 1993 as a dental assistant. My constant desire for learning and new adventures brought me to the front office 8 years ago. Dr. Peterson and every member of our team are committed to providing excellent care and personalized attention to each patient. I am here to help you with your scheduling, treatment planning and insurance needs.

I live with my husband of 19 years, Chris and our kitty, Charlie. I love walking the trails where I live in Mill Creek, hiking, and spending time with family.




Lab Technician

I've been with Northwest Smile Design since 2008. I am usually behind the scenes working in the lab or helping other team members with any task at hand. I love my job because I have fun assisting my teammates and seeing our patients with their new beautiful smiles. Outside the office, I like to spend time with my significant other & family.




Dental Assistant

I have been a Dental Assistant for 14 years. I was given the opportunity to join the NWSD team a little over a year ago and have enjoyed expanding knowledge in Cosmetic Dentistry. As a team member at NWSD I strive to provide each patient with the care and compassion that they deserve. I am very thankful to be part of a team that provides excellent dentistry and patient care.

I have a teenage son and dog who occupy my time outside the office. We enjoy camping, hiking and many other outdoor activities.




Patient Care Coordinator

I am the newest member at Northwest Smile Design. I am here to assist you with scheduling appointments and to answer insurance questions. I started in dentistry about 5 years ago and love meeting new people and seeing all the beautiful smile transformations.

I am married to an amazing husband and we have 3 beautiful children. We enjoy the outdoors and spend a lot of time with sports.

I am truly excited to get to know all of our patients.
