Pam C, Registered Dental Hygienist

Joined the office: 1999
Northern Arizona University
Shoreline Dental Hygiene Program
Guatemala Village Health Board member
Pamela ventured to the “lower 48” after growing up in Alaska. She adores her team and her patients. Not only does she like teaching her patients how to be healthy, Pamela loves listening to their stories and learning from them, as well.
When she’s out and about in the community, she enjoys bumping into patients who stop to say hi and introduce her as their dental hygienist to others they are with. She gets a kick out of them saying things like, “She helped me become a regular flosser!”
Outside of the practice, she works with a Guatemalan medical group, providing preventative dental care to small villages. Her other interests include music, fitness, travel, and her family.

Tildy, Registered Dental Hygienist
Began dental career: 2012
Joined the office: March 2015
Tildy has come up to us from way down under – Wollongong (south of Sydney), Australia. Tildy loves meeting new people, making connections, finding common interests, and helping others achieve great oral health. But she believes the biggest difference a person can make regarding his/her oral health is developing good habits at home.
Activities Tildy enjoys on her own time are: snowboarding, paddle boarding, and gardening (she loves when patients share tips and advice on gardening).
“When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”

X-ray Technician certificate
Maria began her career in the dental field in 1983 at West Seattle Dental Center, working alongside her father who was a dentist there. She loves interacting with her patients to make their visit as comfortable as possible.

Jennie - Dental Assistant
Began dental career: 1998
Joined the office: May, 2008
Jennie’s path to a dental career began when she accompanied her husband to a dentist appointment. The hygienist there began chatting with Jennie and asked her what she did for a living. At the time, Jennie was a waitress exploring her career options. Her husband’s hygienist suggested Jennie should consider becoming a hygienist, and well… the rest, as they say, is history.
Jennie enjoys the many options in today’s dentistry, and takes pleasure in working closely with her patients to form a treatment plan that’s right for them.
