Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

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



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 daughters that I spend all of my free time with. We enjoy riding our horse and being outdoors with our animals.





I joined Northwest Smile Design in 2002. I assist Dr. Peterson and Dr. Koontz 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 married and a mother of three children. We enjoy the outdoors and working in our yard.




Dental Hygienist

I began my career in Dentistry in 2019 after graduating from EWU with a bachelors of science in dental hygiene. My favorite part about being a hygienist is when patients have "light bulb" moments and helping them understand how oral health impacts overall health.

In my free time I enjoy hiking and reading.

I'm very grateful to be a part of the Northwest Smile Design team.




Dental Hygienist

I have worked with Dr. Peterson and Dr. Koontz at Northwest Smile Design since 2007. In my 20-plus years as a dental hygienist, I have had the opportunity to treat all levels of dental needs. My favorite part of my profession is when you feel better and become aware of the importance of oral health and its connection to your overall general health.

I reside with my husband and two children in Arlington. We have dogs and cats that keep us laughing. In my free time I enjoy family activities, movies, game nights, and being on the go. My favorite travel destination is anywhere with a white sandy beach and palm trees.

I look forward to meeting you.




Dental Assistant

I began working at Northwest Smile Design in July 2020, after completing a dental assisting training program in June. My role in the office is sterilization tech/hygiene assistant. Although I am new to the profession, I have learned so much in the last couple months. I enjoy coming to work every day and seeing the joy that comes with creating and maintaining beautiful smiles!

Outside of work I love spending time with my boyfriend and my son. We love camping, playing outside with our dog, spending time working on our property, and snuggling up for movie nights!




Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I joined the Northwest Smile Design team in January 2022. My career in dentistry began in 2003 as a dental assistant. In 2019 I returned to school and graduated as an Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary. As an EFDA you’ll find me helping Dr Peterson and Dr Koontz by placing fillings. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting new people and helping them feel at ease in the dental chair.

In my free time I like to camp, explore new places with my son and husband, and try new recipes.




Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

I joined Northwest Smile Design in May 2023. I began dental assisting in 2007. In 2010, I received my Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary license. The best part of my job is placing fillings and taking care of patients.

I am married and have two sons. I enjoy cooking and decorating our home.




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 a dozen years ago. Dr. Peterson, Dr. Koontz 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 more than 20 years, Chris, and our kitty, Charlie. I love walking the trails where I live in Mill Creek, hiking, and spending time with family.




Front Office Coordinator

I have been in the dental field since 2005. I started as a dental assistant and transitioned to front office within a few years of joining the field. My goal is to provide excellent customer service and treat our patients as if they were family. Joining Northwest Smile Design is one of the best decisions I’ve made. Dr. Peterson, Dr. Koontz and their dentistry team is exceptional and I’m proud to be a part of it.

Outside of the office I reside in Stanwood with my husband and our two son’s. We have a miniature dachshund, Maple and enjoy spending lots of time outdoors. I look forward to greeting you!




Sterile Tech

I joined the Northwest Smile Design team in March 2022. I will graduate from the Dental Assisting program through Sno-Isle TECH skills center in 2022. Most of the time I will be in the back sterilizing instruments or assisting our Hygienists! Although I just recently started, I have already learned so much and am so thankful to be a part of such a great team!

Outside of work I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, painting and hiking!
