Registered Dental Hygienist
Since starting out as a dental assistant in 2008 and then becoming a Dental Hygienist, I have found my field of study for life. Coming from my background, I have worked closely with, as well as independently from, the Dentist. I have seen patients in multiple settings and many types of situations, and these experiences have helped me hone my skills as a dental care provider. One factor remains the same throughout this entire process; patients are coming to me for care and guidance. With every patient and each appointment, I endeavor to make them feel comfortable with the process and confident in my ability to deliver quality care. Being a Pacific Northwest native, I spend a lot of time outdoors hiking and camping. I also enjoy going to concerts and traveling. My adventures allow me to keep my passion for my career strong, and not make it just a job. I truly enjoy greeting patients and welcoming them to my second home; the dental office.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental industry since I Graduated Seattle Central hygiene school in 2019. I really enjoy being a Dental Hygienist because I get to meet new people and make a positive impact on their life in providing good oral health – which truly benefits their overall medical health. I live in Fremont with my boyfriend, Grant, and our dog, Bandit. I enjoy cooking, hiking, traveling, and checking out new wineries, amongst many other things. More importantly, I very much look forward to seeing you in our office and partnering with you for your dental care.

Registered Dental Assistant
I am proud to be part of such a friendly and dedicated office. I love helping patients obtain their smile and feel confident and comfortable in every visit. I have several years of experience in the dental field. Back home, I went to college to become a journalist. When I immigrated to Seattle from El Salvador, I tried to go to nursing school – which is not surprising, since my Dad was a Doctor and my sisters are Doctors and nurses, as well (I have 5 sisters). Now I feel happy and confident that I chose a field that makes me smile and brings opportunities to grow everyday. In my free time, I enjoy biking a great deal. I’ve done the Seattle to Portland and Vancouver BC bike ride, I love hiking in the beautiful Pacific NorthWest, cooking, traveling and, of course, salsa dancing. I look forward to seeing you in our friendly office!
While my career background started in Pharmaceuticals and Training for more than a couple of decades, I love being part of Dr. Waind’s amazing and talented colleagues in this office! When they let me out of the back office, I truly enjoy meeting and getting to know each and every one of our patients. Away from the fun we have serving our patients, I love snowboarding, hiking, wineries, traveling, and, notably, spending time with my family/friends. I’m a born and raised Washington State native, having attended the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!), and love to enjoy all that this wonderful area affords us! I look forward to seeing you and chatting with you on your next visit!!!
