Registered Dental Hygienist
I discovered my passion for the dental field in 2011 when I worked as a front desk receptionist in 2 different dental offices in Northern California. Later I pursued the dental hygiene career and graduated from the Shoreline Dental Hygiene program with honors. I enjoy working with patients, listening to their concerns and giving them advice on how to improve their oral health. As a dental hygienist, I feel passionate and responsible for raising awareness of the importance of oral health in our community since there is a strong correlation between oral health and systemic health.
Besides my passion for the dental field, I love learning new languages; I can speak Vietnamese and some Mandarin Chinese. My interest in cultural heritage has inspired me to learn new recipes from all over the world. In my free time, I love hiking, practicing yoga and volunteering at a local animal rescue.
Office Manager / Treatment Plan Coordinator
I have been in the dental field for over 10 years. I graduated from Everest College with a 4.0 GPA in Dental Assisting and have worked positions in both the front and back office. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and couldn’t imagine a better field to work in.
I was born in Seattle and have lived here for my whole life. I have an apartment that I share with my kitty, Maverick. In my free time, I like to watch horror movies and hang out with friends.
I graduated from Lake Washington Technical College (now Lake Washington Institute of Technology), and have been in dentistry for 28 years. I assist Dr. Yao in all aspects of dentistry, from greeting patients to putting them at ease through different treatments. I love our team in this office. We work very well together to make our job fun and professional.
In my spare time, I like to cook, work in my yard, and play with my six-year-old border collie Lola. I’ve lived in Shoreline for 25 years and love this community!
Since I was a kid, I already knew what I wanted to become and that is to give beautiful smiles to people. Improving someone’s smile is very rewarding. It feels great knowing that you have helped someone become more confident and positive in their lives.
In my free time, I love traveling and hiking with family and friends.
