Meet The Staff

Tina — Office Manager

I chose dentistry because I love working with people!

I am compassionate and enjoy helping people overcome their fear of going to the dentist. I love oral surgery, lab work and forensic dentistry. I enjoy large restorative cases and have a great sense of personal pride seeing my patients through these large cases. The look on their face is priceless when they have faced their dental fears and are now able to smile with confidence!

I have lived and worked in the Lake Stevens community for well over 30 years. I consider my patients and co-workers more than that, I consider them friends!

When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my husband and four-year old daughter. Together we find great pleasure in riding motorcycles, snowmobiling and camping. I also love yoga, traveling and antiques.

Sage — Front Desk Coordinator

Sage has been our Front Desk Coordinator since May of 2017. We are very fortunate to have her with our practice with all of her positivity!

Justina — Dental Assistant

“I enjoy working alongside the best dental team I’ve ever met! Everyone at LVD is so kind and welcoming. I feel right at home whenever I walk through the door. On my free time I love crocheting, watching tv shows, and hanging out with friends/family.

Two dental tips: floss your teeth daily for optimal gum health and limit the amount of sticky/acidic foods to prevent cavities. Foods that stick to your teeth (and stay there) are more susceptible to cavities.”

Serenity — Dental Assistant / Front Desk

I have known that I wanted to work in the dental field since I was in grade school. I graduated from Everest College.  I began working at LVD in 2017.  I love working here because I truly believe in the way Dr. Tsen and Dr. Chan run their practice   I enjoy working for a private practice because it gives me a better opportunity to really get to know my patients.  

I have a beautiful 9 year old daughter who really keeps me on my toes. On August 10, 2019 I married the man of my dreams.  On my spare time, my hobbies are spending quality time with my family and friends.  I enjoy camping, archery, and swimming.  When I am home for an easy evening, I like to crochet and cross stitch.  I truly enjoy gaining trust and befriending the animals that live around my house.  Over the course of two years, I have befriended several squirrels (I can tell them apart).  I have managed to befriend 2 crows. They took longer to gain trust than the squirrels. Now after they are done picking the food I leave out for them they fly off and find me a random shiny object (bottle caps, broken glass, etc…) and leave it in the same spot I put their food.

Mallory — Dental Assistant

I grew up in the small town of Lake Stevens and first was a patient of LVD. The atmosphere that Dr. Chan and Dr. Tsen had cultivated within their practice was definitely a factor in my deciding to pursue a career in the dental field. Everyone in the office treats each other like family and I couldn’t be happier that I was given the opportunity to join the team. I can honestly say that I love coming into work everyday while also having a positive impact on my community.

When I’m not in the office I like spending time with family, friends and being active! I have a passion for learning new things, especially when it comes to oral health and how it can affect the entire body. I truly believe that the greatest wealth is health and investing in your own wellness is the greatest thing you can ever do for yourself.
