I was born in San Diego and moved to WA state when I was 8 years old. I have been working with kids for about 15 years and absolutely love it. Dentistry is a new adventure for me and look forward to my future in this industry. I’m excited to assist with all our patients’ dental care and teach oral health. During my free time, I love to spend time with my husband, kids, family, and friends.

Alexis – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised here in Washington State and have worked with children throughout my career while raising two one-of-a-kind children alongside my husband. When I’m not working with our great patients, I spend my time with my children and husband hiking, kayaking, going on play dates for the kids or even watching Disney movies at home. While dentistry is still a new adventure for me, one of my goals is to make your child feel comfortable and help them know that the dentist can be an exciting place! I cannot wait to be there on your child’s dental journey!
