Hi I’m Emily! I grew up in Oregon, and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology at the University of Oregon. I moved to Washington in 2007 and attended Shoreline Community College to receive my Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene. I went into dental hygiene because I, myself, have dental anxiety. I want to help others overcome this common phobia and have a comfortable and fearless experience. I am passionate about treating the body as a whole, educating you and working with you to reach your goals. Together we can achieve greatness! In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. We can often be found skiing down the slopes or reeling in our catch of the day on the beautiful Puget Sound!

Hi I’m Rus! After being a dental assistant for several years my desire to grow in dentistry led me to Shoreline Community College where I have completed the Dental Hygiene program and joined Integrative Dentistry. It’s my desire to help you improve and maintain your oral health by providing needed periodontal services and educating you on a personal level. I really enjoy seeing patients who have dental fear, anxiety, or just want a gentle approach.

Family is very important to me, so when I am not in the office, I like to spend quality time with my wife and daughters. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, and traveling.

Hi I’m Lydia! I’m from Bellingham and received my Dental Hygiene certification at Bellingham Technical College. I moved to the area in March 2020 and have been enjoying exploring the local beaches, lakes, and mountains.

I am passionate about providing high quality care for you that suits your needs while also building strong personal relationships. I love helping you feel happier and more confident about your smile!

In my free time I enjoy doing things like hiking, crafts, paddle boarding, riding my motorcycle, and hanging out with my friends, family, and kitty, Diamond.

Hi I’m Sarah!

I moved here from Bellingham to attend Shoreline Community College’s Dental Hygiene program. I decided to stay after graduation because of my new found love for the community in my area. I have a son whom I enjoy taking out on adventures such as hiking, snowboarding, camping, biking, and road trips to neighboring states. My life’s motto is, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” (Emerson).

As your hygienist, I strive to make you feel at ease with maximum comfort in each experience with me, and work with you to create an individualized plan towards wellness. My hope is that you leave the office feeling well taken care of and excited to have gained a new skill or piece of information to help continue the journey towards a healthy state of being!
