I was born in Portland then moved to Yakima with my family at a very young age. I became interested in dentistry when I was in high school and attended the Yakima Valley Vocational Dental Assisting Program. I worked as a dental assistant for 7 years before transitioning into an administrative position. I am so grateful to work in a beautiful modern office with such talented and caring dentists. I have had the privilege to work at this amazing family practice for the last 29 years. I feel very fortunate to have built so many relationships with the patients and their families.
I have been working as a bookkeeper at Lakeside Dentistry since 2004. Working with the friendly staff and fantastic dentists has been such a great experience. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, boating, playing tennis, snow skiing, hiking and fishing!
I've been helping people smile for the past 30 years. The last 20 right here at Lakeside Dentistry. I have 2 grown sons and 2 beautiful granddaughters to occupy my time when away from the office. I look forward to scheduling your next visit and our entire staff is ready to meet your families’ dental needs.
I have worked in dentistry since March 2000. I am an administrative assistant. Even though I've lived in the Yakima area for over twenty years, I still enjoy traveling thru out the Pacific Northwest. It is fun learning more about our region. There is so much to do in our beautiful state.

I am a dental hygienist here at Lakeside Dental. I have been working in the dental field since 2014 when I graduated from Yakima Valley Community College. I’ve grown up in the Yakima Valley and graduated from Eisenhower High School in 2010. I truly feel that working as a dental hygienist allows me to give back to the community that I grew up in. Getting to know my patients and building a relationship with them is important to me and one of the best parts about working in the dental field.

AnitaRegistered Dental Assistant
My dental assisting career started in 1982. I have been a part of the Lakeside Dentistry team since 2012. I am in AWW at the way dentistry has changed over the years, and to be a part of the way it transforms your smile makes me smile! I come to work every day, knowing that our client friends are well taken care of from the first step in you take in the front door, to the last smile you see when you leave our office. We have a relaxing atmosphere and a wonderful dental team. We all put our hearts into your dental health. I have three adult children and am also a grandmother, which I love! It's true, grandchildren are so much fun. The best part of a grandma is, you spoil them and then send them home with their parents. I also enjoy cooking, quilting, gardening and watching movies but not the real scary ones. I also like to laugh, so tell me joke and we all will have a good time.
