Dental / Sterilization Assistant
I have been part of the Northwest Smile Design team since 2008. Everything that I have learned about dentistry has been from this office, and even though I have been here for more than 10 years I still learn something new every day. I love my job because I get to see our patients with their beautiful smiles and it brightens my day.
Outside the office, I love going on spontaneous trips to the beach (rain or shine!) with my boyfriend. I also enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and reading.
I graduated from EWU with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 1984. I have enjoyed dental hygiene for more than three decades and have been fortunate enough to have spent most of that time working for Dr. Peterson.
I enjoy working with Dr. Peterson and our team, providing quality dentistry and care. Dr. Peterson is known for tranforming smiles, which has made this job extremely gratifying as well as fun!
I am married to my best friend, Todd, and together we have two beautiful daughters: Lauren, who has graduated from WSU in elementary education; and Madison, who recently graduated from WSU and hopes to continue her education in the field of pharmacolocy.
As a family, we enjoy golfing, pickleball, game nights, and spending time together. I am also an avid gardener and crafter in my free time ... as well as a “dog mom” to two precious puppies.
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 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.
I have worked with Dr. Peterson 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.
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 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.
I have been is dentistry since 2006. I started as a sterilization tech in high school and I have more than 11 years of experience as a dental assistant. I enjoy being able to help people through their dental fears: getting to visit with patients and discuss any questions or concerns they may have. It is important to me that I work for a dentist that provides quality care, and Dr. Peterson is excellent! The fact that he and everyone else here is fun and light-hearted makes this a place I look forward to coming in to every morning.
I married my best friend from high school. Together, we have the most wonderful baby girl, Quinn, and the best dog ever, Murphy, a Bernese Mountain dog. In our spare time we own a photography business and enjoy taking photos of people and scenery.
