As a dental hygienist, I focus on preventing disease to protect teeth, gums, and my patients’ total health. In addition to treating patients directly by providing quality services in cleaning their teeth, I perform oral healthcare assessments, oral cancer screening, and patient education on home care. I am certified in CPR/BLS training and continue to further my knowledge through yearly CE courses in order to provide patients with the utmost care. My favorite part of my job is making a difference with my patients. I love seeing them succeed by encouraging and helping them achieve their best oral health.
I graduated in 1993 from Pierce College in Lakewood Washington with an associate’s degree in applied science. In 2009, I joined the Gunderson Dental Care team with 16 years of experience in dental hygiene. I love being a part of our team. We work exceptionally well together with high respect for one another. Our team provides caring and exceptional dental care with our patients and we strive hard every day to make our patients’ dental visits with us as enjoyable as possible.
I am married to a wonderful man, have a daughter who lives in Glasgow, Scotland, and a son who is a senior at Capital High School. On my off time, when I’m not at my son’s sport events, I enjoy traveling, boating, hiking, biking, snow skiing, and staying fit by living a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating and exercise. I love spending time with family and friends. I am very blessed to have them in my life!
