We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
As our office manager, I am responsible for scheduling patient appointments, insurance and treatment coordination, and keeping the practice running smoothly. I like creating relationships with all our new patients and keeping up with the lives of our established patients. Helping patients become comfortable with the financial process allows them to focus on maintaining a great, healthy smile. I feel very confident with the diagnosis and treatment Dr. Howard provides his patients. His warm and caring attitude reflects his passion for dentistry. My husband, Jason, and I enjoy camping, bike riding, and going to Seahawks games. We also have two cats named Jaz and Cola.
I have been a dental assistant since 2004 and have enjoyed working for Dr. Howard since 2007. I have met a lot of people through this office and it has been a great experience getting to know each one of them. It is very important to me to be compassionate toward my patients and their needs. I always try to make patients feel as comfortable as I can during their dental treatment. I am a mother of two wonderful daughters who keep me on my toes and am married to my high school sweetheart. I enjoy reading, working out, dancing, shopping, and entertaining friends. Most of all, I love spending time with my family.
I assist Dr. Howard in providing dental treatments and help our patients to be as comfortable as possible. I started working in the dental field in 1995 and have worked with our awesome team since 2001. I truly enjoy getting to know our patients and their families and helping them with all their dental needs. My hobbies include going to dog shows and field trial competitions with my three hyper German Wirehaired Pointers. My husband and I also enjoy traveling, ocean fishing, and horseback riding.
I am one of Dr. Howard's dental hygienists and I have had the pleasure of working for this great office for over 20 years. My favorite part of my job is the relationships I have established with our patients over the years. I love catching up with their families and learning about their interesting lives. I love working with Dr. Howard because his care for our patients reflects his ethics and real concern for the best interests of our patients. My husband and I have a daughter in college and two cats at home. Walking with friends is one of my favorite activities and I also enjoy gardening.
I came to this office as a dental hygienist in 2000 and have over 20 years of experience in making my patients' smiles as healthy as possible. I have a passion for helping each patient achieve and maintain optimum oral health. Dr. Howard is very confident in his ability to provide each patient the individualized care they need. He is warm, caring, and very personable. I love my work and enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level; they are my "dental family". I have two daughters and a new grandson. In my free time I enjoy gardening, antiquing, and Argentine tango dancing.
