LAURA - Operations Manager
I started my career in the dental ﬁeld in 2007 as a registered dental assistant then moved my way up to working in the front oﬃce. Here at Juanita Family Dentistry, I work hard to build relationships with our patients while helping with all their scheduling and accounting needs. The Juanita Family Dentistry staﬀ are like my extended family. I enjoy coming to work every day to get to spend time working with such smart and caring group. We work well together to achieve our common goal of creating a warm and inviting oﬃce for our patients.
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy walking my dog Lola, gardening, and doing construction on my home.
RACHEL - Patient Coordinator
I have been enjoying my career in the dental field since 2010. I started in dentistry as a pediatric dental assistant and had great experiences working with kids. I soon found my calling with Juanita Family Dentistry, allowing me to help patients of all ages.
At home my husband and I love spend quality family time with our two young kids. Since moving here from the Tri Cities we enjoy going to Seahawks games and exploring the city.
KAHIN - Receptionist/Dental Assistant
I became a Registered Dental Assistant in 2010 and obtained my EFDA certification in 2015. At Laurelhurst Family Dentistry, I do the front office and clinical work, it’s great to be part of a new office and use my skills to make patients feel comfortable and at ease. I’ve met wonderful people during my time working as an assistant and I feel fortunate to be able to be on a beautiful journey to assist in bringing back smiles. I am currently in the process of advancing my education as I would love to become a Dental Hygienist. I am taking classes to pursue my dreams. Dental Assisting has been such a great impact in directing me and preparing me for my life journey.
As for my personal life, I love playing sports (mainly soccer), taking on adventures with friends, and making a trip to Lake Chelan with my family during the summer months. My wife and daughter are my world and I love going home to them every day!
JENNY - Receptionist
My role at Juanita Family Dentistry involves scheduling appointments and checking insurance benefits, but most importantly, ensuring that patients feel comfortable and well taken care of from the moment they arrive until they leave. I worked for years at Blue Cross Blue Shield before deciding to help my daughter-in-law Dr. Chelsea in her dental practice. This office is a genuine pleasure to work in. The girls here are such a fun group!
In my free time, I enjoy traveling to the Philippines, spending time with my two grandchildren and two grand-puppies and being an active member of my church.
