Meet the Team
After moving to Kitsap County at a young age, I grew to love the beautiful state of Washington and realized I wanted to live in and serve those in the Western Washington area. I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene with Honors. During my time at EWU I developed a love of helping undeserved populations and cultivated a
passion for oral health advocacy and education. I enjoy seeing a variety of patients of all ages and hearing their unique stories while helping them to achieve or maintain optimal oral and full-body health. When not at the office, I enjoy playing the piano and going on hikes to enjoy the vast natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
As a passionate hygienist of 10 years, I am thrilled to have found my home in the PNW. I graduated with honors from Wichita State University in Kansas where I worked in a rural, underserved community for 5 years. I took my career to Houston Texas for several years, and then finally Dorothy made it to the Emerald City! Throughout my career I have fallen in love with the challenge of providing individualized treatment to every patient in the most comfortable way possible, especially those with previous dental anxiety. Its especially rewarding to watch patients build good oral health awareness and habits by establishing a relationship between the provider and patient, thus I make it my goal to get to know each person in my chair. I love working with a team where everyone shares this perspective and comes together to create a positive atmosphere and experience for the patient.
Outside of the office I love to spend time with my two kids and husband being active outdoors. I love cheesy 80’s movies and playing board games/card games.
