Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental field since 1999 and have enjoyed being a Dental Hygenist since 2005. I earned my Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene at Columbia Basin College in Pasco, Washington. I am experienced in both traditional and restorative hygiene therapies and I have been pleased to be a team member of this office since 2006. I enjoy getting to know my patients and take great pride in educating them on the importance of dental health care. When I’m not practicing dental hygiene, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, snow skiing, traveling, reading and shopping.
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.

I earned my Bachelors of Science degrees at Colorado University at Denver in 2008 and have been practicing since. I love working with people and helping them to improve their dental health through education and utilizing the newest technology that Sound Dentistry Seattle provides. In my free time, I enjoy scuba diving, hiking, and traveling!

Registered Dental Assistant
I enjoy helping patients understand their treatment needs and achieving confidence in their smile! I love being a part of a patient’s journey in achieving their overall oral health goals and strives to provide the most comfortable experience possible. I was trained to be a dental assistant at Kaplan University in Texas, where I was born and raised. I have been a dental assistant since 2008 and have had several hours of continuing education and specialty training. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and fur babies (2 dogs, 1 cat) cooking, traveling and enjoying all the Pacific Northwest was to offer!
Patient Services Coordinator
I have worked in the dental industry since 2008. The majority of my career has been helping patients at the front desk, although, I also have experience as a dental assistant, as well. I love being a part of Dr. Waind’s amazing team and have enjoyed getting to know the patients. I will be the first smile you see when you visit and the first to help with any questions you may have. When not at work, you will find me outside chasing any sun Seattle gets. I look forward to meeting you soon!
My dental journey started in 2005 and since that day I wanted to learn everything I can about the industry. I started in Orthodontics and worked my way to Pediatrics, Periodontal, Endodontic, Oral Surgery to Cosmetic and General Dentistry. I love it all! I work the front and enjoy getting to know patients and fulfilling their needs. Healthcare is one of my top priorities, so you’ll be in good hands. I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, then moved to evergreen Seattle in 2015. If you don’t see me greeting your beautiful faces, you’ll find me hiking, exploring, camping, running, traveling, reading, working out to my favorite jams, playing with animals or relaxing with some wine in hand. Can’t wait to meet you!
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!!!
