JULIAN - STERILIZATION ASSISTANT Hello, I stated working here at Yelm Dental this year as a sterilization tech. This is my first job in a dental office, and I have been learning new things daily. Everyone has been so nice and has helped me to understand the ins and outs of sterilization. I am a diehard Hawks fan and if there is a game on, I am watching it. I also like to play video game and disc golf and I am a bit of a soccer enthusiast as well.
SHONNA - CHAIRSIDE ASSISTANT
I have been a dental assistant since 1987. I have lived in the Tacoma area since 1984 and moved to Yelm in 2007. I joined the Yelm Dental "Tooth Team" in 2008. I enjoy helping our patients feel comfortable and work hard to make sure that they have a positive experience.
I enjoy life with my husband Bill and our son Willie. I also have two grown children, Rudy and Julie, and 4 grandchildren. I enjoy all the outdoor activities this area has to offer, especially camping and hiking at the beach or mountains. I love to garden and take long bike rides, and on those rainy days you can find me reading and planning my next adventure.
SUE - CHAIRSIDE ASSISTANT I have been part of the Yelm Dental family since day one, working alongside Dr. Kay. Back then it was just me and Dr. Kay in a two operatory office. My how we have grown continued with the Yelm Dental family after Dr. Smith and Dr. Blackner took over.
I am married to a great guy for over 40 years and have raised three great kids. We have been part of the Yelm-Rainier community since the early 1970’s by volunteering and participating in various youth and sports programs. I enjoy watching the Mariners, Seahawks, Kraken and WSU Cougars. I also enjoy quilting, gardening, and taking care of my kitties.
|VICTORIA - CHAIRSIDE ASSISTANT I started working in the dental field about 6 years ago (2016) and have enjoyed it since. Yelm Dental has been my home for all 6 of those years. I initially started working in the front office for a few months before transitioning to the back office where I started as the sterilization tech. After receiving in-office training and attending Olympia Dental Assisting Program I started working as a dental assistant to help give patients the best dental care I possibly can. I have been with my significant other, David, for 10 years now. We have 3 cats (Moon Pie, Casper, and Trigger) that I absolutely love and adore. In my spare time I enjoy painting, swimming, and spending time with my family and friends.
