Patient Care Coordinator
Before working in the front office capacity I worked as a chairside assistant, always striving to assist our patients with a better understanding of their dental needs. I am always available to answer questions and to help seamlessly coordinate our practice schedule with their busy lives. Introducing children to the dental office and good dental habits has become my passion and the highlight of my dental career. They love meeting our “dental duck” and “Mr. Thirsty”. Our team loves to work with our patients and see them achieve the best dental health for the entire family.
Away from the office I spend time with my children and grandchildren, as well as traveling to Haiti on a yearly basis to bring toothbrushes and apply fluoride to local schoolchildren. In warm summer months I can be found working in the garden and tending to my bee hive.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am responsible for updating our patients’ medical history, taking X-rays and perio measurements, cleaning and polishing teeth, and educating patients on great home care. I focus a lot on the educational aspect of my job and think it’s important for my patients to be fully involved in the decision making process in regards to their dental health. I love getting to know my patients and helping them to improve their lives with a beautiful smile.
My husband and I have a daughter and a son. When I have the chance I enjoy traveling, reading, sewing, and cooking. Spending time with my children is always my first priority.
Certified Dental Assistant
My number one goal is to make my patients feel safe and comfortable, so I do whatever I can to achieve that goal. As an assistant, I get to work hands-on with our patients of all ages, from young ones to adults. At our office, we are here to help you get great dental health while creating a positive and fun atmosphere. We want to build trusting relationships and provide the best education to keep you happy and healthy for the rest of your life.
In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, snowboarding, dirt bike riding, and horseback riding. My dad and I are also on our way to becoming Brew Masters and would love to open a small family pub one day.
Certified Dental Assistant
I am currently a dental assistant and am working on my pre-reqs for dental hygiene school. I still work full time assisting Dr. Tatt, and thoroughly enjoy working with patients and helping them smile. My long term goal has always been to become a dental hygienist since my Mom and Grandma both worked in the dental field. I have done some volunteering overseas, and I can see that being a dental hygienist will be an asset for when we go again in the future.
My husband and I love spending time hiking, traveling, and camping; pretty much anything outside here in the NW is wonderful. I also love spending time with friends and family.
I am responsible for processing our patients’ insurance and helping them understand their benefits and flex spending accounts. Together with Dr. Tatt, we can take care of the patients to make their dental treatment as smooth as possible. She helps the patients with their teeth to improve their oral health, and makes it as comfortable as possible. I help to make the payment side as straight forward as possible giving accurate estimates and processing insurance claims for our patients.
My wife’s name is Audrey and we have two wonderful children, Ian and Kylie. As a family, we love traveling to warm weather places, especially to Lake Chelan, Hawaii, and Mexico. I also enjoy getting together with friends for good food and wine.
