Meet the Team

Gretchen

Office Administrator

Hi and welcome to Meridian Dental Clinic. It’s my pleasure to help you get the best dental care for you and your family. I work in our front office, where I’ll schedule your visits, review financials and work hard to find terms that work with your budget, and file insurance claims. I handle accounts receivable, too. I started working in the dental field in 1980 and joined the incredible doctors and team here in 2010. I love working in such a happy practice!

Away from work, I like playing kickball with my grandchildren, gardening, and time with my three cockers and very cranky cat! I also blow glass art and enjoy skiing and biking.

 

Jillane

Scheduling Coordinator

I am the first point of contact in the office. I check patients in, schedule appointments, pull and file charts, call to verify insurance, call to confirm appointments, and fill the schedule as needed. I worked for a denturist for eight years before coming to Meridian Dental Clinic, and that is what got me interested in working for a dental office. I have a lot more opportunity to advance here and I love that I get to work directly with patients. I genuinely enjoy interacting with our patients and helping to make sure their needs are met.

I am happily married to my husband Greg, and I have two teenage boys. In our free time, we enjoy watching the Mariners and Seahawks, going on walks, and mini golfing. We also enjoy the beach, especially Maui!

 

Adria

Scheduling Coordinator and Assistant

Hello and welcome! I will greet you when you arrive, check you in, and update your records. I’ll also help you schedule visits and work with you on financial arrangements. Sometimes you’ll find me working in the clinic, assisting with our orthodontic patients. I’ve been part of the team since 1992 and can’t imagine a more positive, supportive practice where everyone goes the extra mile for our patients.

When I’m not working, my husband and I enjoy exploring our area, attending sporting events, and visiting museums, parks, and restaurants. I also like cooking, traveling, and church activities.

 

Donna

Registered Dental Assistant

Hello! I’m looking forward to getting to know you. I’m here to help you and want you to feel safe and comfortable during visits. It’s important you understand your treatment, what’s happening in your mouth, and how we can help you. I’ll be by your side, preparing you to see the doctor, talking with you during the procedure, and checking that you’re pleased when we’re done. I’ve been part of the practice since 1984 and consider our patients part of my family.

My husband and I have been married more than 25 years. We enjoy cheering for the Seahawks and Mariners and riding around town on our cruiser bikes. I also love animals and am addicted to growing dahlias.

 

Jill

Registered Dental Assistant

I have worked in the dental field for 25 years as a dental assistant and am happy to bring my knowledge and experience here to Meridian Dental Clinic. My goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and to make your experience with us a positive one! I’ll help our doctors with general dental assisting duties, help you feel comfortable throughout your visit, review your treatment with you, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

My fiancé Charlie and I enjoy camping with our travel trailer and spending time with our kids Alexa, Paris, Chase, and Ryan. We also have a sweet puppy, Riley, who is the little angel in our household. We are HUGE soccer fans and are always cheering on the Sounders, but we also won’t miss a Seahawks or Huskies game!

 

Dam

Registered Dental Assistant

I help patients from the moment they enter our office to the time they leave. In addition to helping our dentists deliver their necessary treatment, I make sure our patients are comfortable and accommodate any of their special needs. I relish the chance to interact with existing patients, get to know new patients, and be a part of their journey to a new smile.

I am originally from the Sudan but moved to the US and became a citizen 21 years ago. I now live in Federal Way and love the greater Seattle area. I have a cat, named Toby, and lots of immediate family that lives nearby. I love to travel, read nonfiction, and watch documentaries when I have free time.

 

Kenya

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for 14 years and am dedicated to helping our patients have the best possible dental care and achieve the best possible dental health. My favorite part of my job is taking care of our patients and seeing them leave with a smile. Even though I have only been at Meridian Dental Clinic for a year, I feel like it’s been a lot longer… in a good way! I love working with my coworkers and doctors because they feel like family.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends and family.

 

Lindsey

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi and welcome! It’s my pleasure to help you develop optimal oral health and a smile you love. I’ll work closely with you, and perform painless cleanings while teaching you about your dental health. Each person has different concerns, and I want to understand yours, so you can improve your home care. I became part of the Meridian Dental Clinic team in 2013. We have an amazing team and doctors who do everything they can to ensure you’re smiling during visits!

Outside of work, I love time with my husband Jayson and our two children, Kaede and Sadie. When we’re not gone for the weekend or at a sporting event, we’re usually enjoying time in our yard.

 

Stacy

Registered Dental Hygienist

By far, my favorite part of my job is establishing relationships with my patients and helping them achieve optimal dental health. Those relationships make me smile, and I love providing care to wonderful people. I spend my days one-on-one with patients, delivering preventive oral hygiene. I spend a lot of time educating patients about oral health and how to keep their mouth healthy between their regular visits to our office. Seeing those happy, healthy smiles at a recall visit lets me know my patients are taking my advice to heart.

I live in Bonney Lake, where I love getting outdoors for activities like hiking, gardening, and horseback riding. I also enjoy volunteering for community outreach programs like Seattle King County Clinic.
