We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
After more than 20 years of assisting and increasing responsibility in the front office, I transitioned to front office work full time in 2016. As our office manager, patient care is my number-one priority. My job gives me a great opportunity to be able to help patients with their treatment plans, insurance, scheduling, and so much more. I also manage the daily needs of Dr. Taylor, as well as the rest of the staff, so they can concentrate on our patients’ care! Everyone in our office genuinely cares about our patients’ needs and concerns. We are all committed to creating a relaxing, comfortable, and fun environment for our patients.
I am a busy mom of five, plus a zoo of animals. We are always running from one sport to the next depending on the season. In my free time, I love to travel to tropical places—sometimes with my kiddos and sometimes just me and my fiancé. I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, cooking (especially baking), and basking in the sun.
Certified Dental Assistant
I began my career in the United States Navy and received my training through the Naval Dental Assisting Program in Chicago, IL. I’m here to take care of our patients, make sure they are comfortable before and during dental procedures, and make sure that when the procedure is complete, the patient is happy with their dental visit. I love working with Dr. Taylor and our team because we all genuinely care about our patients. We strive to make sure that everyone is happy and comfortable. Of course, we can’t forget the most famous and loved members in the clinic, Justice and Vixen!
I have been for almost five years and have two children, Axleigh who is three-and-a-half and Ryker who is one-and-a-half. I spend all my free time with them, in addition to completing my prerequisites for Bellingham Tech’s dental hygiene program. We moved around a lot while I was in the Navy and are so happy to call Bellingham, WA home. We can’t wait to see what the future has in store!
My job includes everything from meeting new patients and taking X-rays, to proving dental hygiene therapy to patients such as cleanings, periodontal health screening and education, and administering local anesthesia when necessary. However, the most important part of my job is helping patients overcome their dental anxiety by providing gentle treatment. It’s so rewarding to be a part of improving their oral health. I truly appreciate working with such a dedicated doctor and team. The dogs are great too!
My husband and I are going on ten years of marriage and have two boys and a baby girl. In my spare time I enjoy going for walks with my kids and getting involved with the community to provide free or low cost dental services to people in need. I was fortunate enough to participate in a health mission trip to Jamaica with my dental hygiene graduating class in 2015, and plan to go back next year!
Certified Dental Assistant/Registered Dental Assistant
I joined Dr. Taylor’s team as an intern in 2015 and graduated from Bellingham Technical College’s dental assisting program in March of 2016. I was so happy to become a fulltime member of Dr. Taylor’s team! He has been a great teacher, and as a recent graduate, I have learned so much from him. My goal is to help make going to the dentist a more pleasant experience. I know many people have dental anxiety. My “co-workers” Vixen and Justice (our therapy dogs) are great at helping our patients feel calm.
I was born and raised in Bellingham, and love it here. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughter Paris, playing with our kitten Lennix, and taking my Pomeranian Moka for walks in the park. We live by Whatcom Falls Park, where there are so many awesome trails to explore.
