She graduated High School and went directly to a dental assisting school. Jill loved and worked as a dental assistant for many years. She then transitioned to the front office. She loves the front desk where she can interact with patients and apply all of her dental knowledge.
Jill has been married to her best friend for 25 years. They have a son and two sweet dachshunds. Jill lives for the summer- Enjoying gardening, waterskiing and anything else outdoors!

She enjoys keeping current on practice techniques and learning all she can for the best care for her patients. As a Washington native she enjoys many of the outdoor activities our area has to offer, but probably attempting home improvement projects and raising her new family is what fills her free time most days.

Cheryl has been a dental hygienist for many years, pursuing further education after being a dental assistant for six years. She enjoys spending time with her husband and extended family. Her favorite day is “grandparent day” when the youngest grandson spends the day. And, any day golfing is a good day.

Reana began her dental career working as a pediatric dental assistant for many years before attending hygiene school and graduating from Shoreline Community College. She enjoys all aspects of dentistry, but especially enjoys educating and connecting with patients. Reana was born and raised in Western Washington but lived in London for several years where she married her British husband. Outside of work, she enjoys planning vacations, trying new restaurants, and spending time with her family, including her two pugs, Gus and Louie.
Jeri - Dental Assistant
Jeri has over 30 years of dental assisting experience. The most rewarding part of being a dental assistant is the happiness and appreciation our patients give us for what we do. I enjoy making people feel more confident in themselves while helping them improve their overall dental health. I love our patients and it is a pleasure to come to work every day.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends, cycling, and hanging out with my awesome dog Tinkerbell.
