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.

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.”
Ann — Hygienist
From Lake Sammamish to Lake Stevens, Ann has been Lakeview Dental’s hygienist since August of 2016 and brings 17 years of dental hygiene experience. With 25 years combined dental experience, she brings a life long love of dentistry to promote a lifetime of smiles for each patient. A career in dentistry was a natural choice for Ann as she comes from a family of dental professionals. Ann is the twin sister of Amy, who has been on staff at Lakeview Dental as well. Her passion for dentistry is evident in how she treats her patients with utmost care, focusing on education while introducing appropriate home care aids.
Outside office hours, Ann stays busy with the demands of her 3 kids while enjoying sports, staying fit and riding Harley’s with her boyfriend, Jim. Weekends often involve spending time with her large extended family, several brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews.
Ann embraces her personal philosophy, “life is about giving and loving” by exemplifying her goal of personal care for each patient in thoroughness, head and neck exam, comfort with pain management and encouragement to achieve the best home care for ultimate dental health.
