Application for Employment

Registered Dental Hygienists

Jeanine, RDH

Jeanine graduated from Fort Steilacoom’s Hygiene Program and offers years of experience in treating periodontal disease, as she was part of a periodontal specialty practice for over 15 years before extending her career in our general practice. Her joyful nature is balanced with the skills necessary to help maintain our patient’s oral health. Jeanine appreciates the special friendships she has made over the years through dentistry and has a passion for her family, friends, horses and very cute puppies.

Jean, RDH

Jean graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Pierce College and is particularly skilled in periodontal therapy, having worked in a periodontal specialty practice for 9 years before joining our team. Prior to her career in dentistry, multi-talented Jean earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in music and designed custom jewelry. She has a keen eye for detail which contributes to her skill as a registered dental hygienist. Outside of the office, Jean has been recognized for volunteerism at several south King County and Pierce County communities as well as philanthropic international health organizations.

Dental Assistants

Marci

Marci has a gentle, unique way of putting her patients and co-workers at ease. Being a versatile staff member, she enjoys everything from surgery to front office duties. She goes the extra mile every day to get a quality job done. Having grown up on a dairy farm, she knows the value of a strong work ethic and integrity. When not at work, she loves being with family and friends, along with activities such as running, golf, and hot yoga.

Amanda

Amanda is a lifelong resident of Pierce County who is best described as a “people person,” always looking for ways to put patients first. She enjoys working hard and taking care of people, whether it be with patients at the office or at home with her two daughters (she loves being a mom!). When you meet Amanda, what you’ll probably notice first is her cheerful attitude. We also appreciate her excellent clinical skills, great sense of humor, and teamwork — she takes initiative to pitch in with whatever is needed.
