Meet Our Team
Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our practice.
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
My husband and I have three wonderful kids. They keep us busy with sports, drum lessons, and rock band rehearsals. We love to cheer for the kids’ sports teams, travel, explore the beautiful northwest, and try new restaurants. My husband is a former chef so we tend to have great meals at home as well!
I started my career in dentistry as a chair side assistant. After 5 years as an assistant, I moved to other areas of the dental office while still occasionally assisting. I enjoy continuing education and learning about new developments in dentistry. I’m happy to answer questions about dental procedures, insurance benefits, treatment estimates, patient accounts and scheduling. Please let me know how I can help. The best part of my job is creating relationships with our patients. It is very fulfilling to see a patient who has been fearful in the past leave the office smiling and feeling comfortable.
Hi, my name is Ashley. I've been a dental assistant since 2017 and I love working in this field. As a child I really looked forward to going to the dentist. I remember the friendly staff and the dentist talking to me about my teeth. Those positive visits are what ultimately lead me down this career path. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with family and friends or relaxing with a good movie. I'm excited to be a part of this team. Dr. Howard and the staff are a joy to be around and I look forward to the work. We all work hard to make the patient experience as comfortable as possible.
I have worked in the dental field for 20 plus years. I especially like working with children and making them feel comfortable in the dental chair. When I am not at work, I am spending time with my 2 children and husband of 15 years. I enjoy being out in the fresh air, traveling to new places and cooking Mexican food.
My name is Christina and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist here at Dr. Howard’s fantastic practice. I attended Eastern Washington University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. My goal is to help you take control of your oral health through products and processes unique to you. I am committed to creating beautiful smiles while ensuring my patients feel comfortable and well-cared for throughout their appointment.
Outside of work I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my husband Alex and our two cats.
My name is Louanne and I am one of Dr. Howard’s dental hygienists. I have been practicing hygiene for over 16 years and love the opportunity to help patients achieve a healthy mouth and smile. I also enjoy getting to know the patients and forging long term relationships with them. As a long time resident of West Seattle, it is a pleasure to serve members of my own community and have a lot of fun while doing it! When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two children and our dog. We love boating, skiing, spending time with friends and traveling. I can’t wait to meet you all!
Hi, I’m Sam! I grew up in Sumner Washington and currently reside in Federal Way. I completed my education at Eastern Washington University where I received my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. Outside of being a dental hygienist I love to go on hikes and participate in outdoor activities, spend time with my family, and travel. I have two dogs named Maya and Jet who are both Shepard mixes!
My favorite part about being a dental hygienist is that I get to help people become confident in their smile. I joined the dental field because of my positive experiences with the dentist growing up. I am passionate about bringing that same comfort and positivity to my patients.
I graduated from PIMA Medical institute and have been assisting for 5 years. My favorite part of dentistry is seeing the results of cosmetic dentistry. I also really enjoy the great conversation and relationships with patients. Dr. Howard and the staff are such a pleasure to work with and have welcomed me with kind hearts and warm welcomes. We always strive for every patient to leave healthy and happy! In my free time I enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, my daughter and our kitty! We really enjoy Seattle's local parks or simply being together at home.
