Office Manager

Leslie has been a friend of ​the office for many years. She entered the dental field in 2012 after 20 years of managing her husband’s construction company, which she continues to do.

She and her husband of 30+ years have four amazing sons. When she is not at the office she enjoys watching the kid’s sports games. She also loves spending time with family and friends, live music, cooking and baking.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Teresa graduated with her dental hygiene degree from Yakima Valley College in 1992, in Yakima, Washington.

Shortly after graduation, she took her Washington state boards at the University of Washington and received her license.  She has been practicing since 1992.

Teresa, and her husband David of 33+ years, relocated to Sammamish, Washington in 1995.  They both fell in love with the area; the beautiful trees, mountains, hills, trails, and lakes.  They have an amazing adult daughter, Michelle, who lives in Kent, Washington.

Their other child is a fur baby, a miniature apricot poodle that lives at home with them.  Her name is Hannah and she enjoys going for walks.  Hannah gets her teeth brushed every day and a dental cleaning every 3 months.  With Teresa's gentle touch, Hannah tolerates her cleanings well, and of course after every brushing and cleaning she always gets a healthy treat. (Usually carrots)

Teresa enjoys traveling, bicycling, boating, and walking her dog along the beautiful Lake Sammamish trail.  She also enjoys meeting up with family and friends, staying home with her husband, and relaxing and watching old concerts on the big screen.

My life is blessed...


Certified Dental Assistant

Teresa is a certified dental assistant since 2000.  She graduated from Renton Technical College.  Teresa enjoys taking continuing education classes to keep up to date on new and changing dental techniques. 

Teresa grew up in the beautiful Pacific North-West (Maple Valley) and lives with her fiancee Mark, in Hobart.  She has two wonderful sons, Christopher who lives in Texas and Cory who lives locally along with his little girl, her beautiful grand-daughter Sophia. On her days off she love to spend as much time with her grand-daughter as possible. 

Teresa also enjoys snowmobiling, traveling and camping with friends, cooking with her sweetheart ~ watch out food network :)  She loves sitting on her back deck watching the wildlife that may walk through. One can never have enough time with family.  

Life Is Good
