Office Manager / Treatment Plan Coordinator


I was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and have been in healthcare for over 8 years now. I've been in the dental field for over 3 years and have loved this position the most. I enjoy helping patients with their difficult insurance issues and multitasking by helping in the front and back office.

In my free time, I enjoy painting, paddle boarding, crocheting, and doing pretty much anything with a good group of friends.


Dental Hygienist


I was born and raised in Seattle. I received my BA from the University of Washington and my hygiene degree from Lake Washington Institute of Technology. I have been in dentistry since 2001, and a hygienist since 2010. I love being a hygienist because I enjoy working with people and providing high quality care to help maintain and improve overall health. It also gives me the opportunity to do volunteer work.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my two boys and dog.


Dental Assistant


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!


Dental Assistant


I graduated from Washington State University Vancouver with a degree in Biology - Medical Sciences. I am on a pre-dental track and have been a registered dental assistant for 2 years. As I myself have dental anxiety, I hope to help patients relieve their anxiety by informing them through every step and process.

I am originally from Vancouver, Washington and just recently moved to the area. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and going out to new restaurants and coffee shops.
