I love how beautiful and unique each patient’s smile is. More than anything, I enjoy helping patients feel confident and love their own smiles!

What do you love about your work?
Getting to know each patient I meet–whether we laugh, console, or reminisce! It is a joy to meet new people and to hear stories about their lives…and to hear singing all around the office!

What do you do with your time off?
On my time off, I love taking my daughter on walks or drives all around this beautiful state. I love being with my friends and family, reading, being outdoors, and spur-of-the-moment road trips!

The culture at Monroe Smiles is amazing! I love being able to work with people who are professional and enjoyable to be around. And my schedule is awesome!

What do you do with your time off?
Don’t try to find me on my days off, because I am probably somewhere outdoors, camping or hiking with my dogs. Otherwise, I like to spend time hanging out with my family and friends.

 

Kim – Registered Dental Assistant

Education

Why do you do what you do?
After spending much of my childhood and early adult life with mis-aligned teeth, a dental transformation enabled me to smile with confidence and triggered a new-found interest in dentistry.

What do you love about your work?
It’s easy to come to work every day when you work with such a great team! I love getting to meet new people and helping them achieve a beautiful smile.

What do you do with your time off?
When I am away from the office, you might find me at my favorite Mexican restaurant with a cocktail in hand or at an NHRA drag race. I love hanging out with friends and family, traveling to new places with my husband and daughter, and an occasional spur of the moment trip to the casino.

I love being able to encourage and educate patients to be in their best health possible. Being a dental hygienist, I get to establish relationships with my patients, and I look forward not only to providing dental care but also getting to know about their families and lives!

I love to tackle DIY design projects around our home with my husband. We also love to take our 4-year-old daughter on adventures around the PNW, and you can often find us hanging out in Cle Elum with family. Any chance we get, we root-on either the Seahawks, Mariners or Huskies!

Molly – Registered Dental Assistant

Why do you do what you do?
I originally went to dental assisting school to learn enough about dentistry to be able to work in the front office, but I ended up loving chairside assisting.

Natasha

Natasha – Front Office Team Lead

Education/Certification
Washington Academy of Dental Assisting

Why do you do what you do?
I’m naturally a compassionate person, and my heart goes out to those in need. Being in an environment where I’m able to have a part in helping people turn their health around and improve their lives is incredibly fulfilling.

What do you love about your work?
I love the people I work with. It sounds cliché, but in my case it’s true! We actually enjoy each other’s company. As a team we work hard and deliver top-notch care to our patients while managing to have fun at the same time.

What do you do with your time off?
When I’m not at work, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and my mob of children. As a family, we are very involved in our church and have a passion for volunteering in our community. In our down time, we love spending time outdoors and camping, but you can just as easily find us huddled together in front of a good movie.

Scott – Chief Financial Officer

Education
Master’s degree in awesomeness from the School of Hard Knocks

Why do you do what you do?
Many industries have a stigma attached to them, and dentistry is no exception. I love having the opportunity to change people’s perceptions. When a patient comes to our office, they have a totally unique, enjoyable, and unexpected experience. And our online patient reviews are a testament to that.

What do you love about your work?
I love our team. They are fun, competent, and passionate. We have a blast working together. And yes, practical jokes are involved. I also love the satisfaction of knowing our patients are receiving dental care that is second to none, in a relaxing and comfortable environment.

What do you do with your time off?
That’s none of your business, and I’ll thank you to stay out of my personal affairs. Just kidding! I love golfing, reading, traveling, watching movies, road trips with my wife, and hanging out and playing games with my kids (X4). I like spending time in California in the winter, and then in the summer, I like to spend time in California.
