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.
Nikki — Front Desk Coordinator

Justina — Dental Assistant
** Justina have gone on to hygiene school ! **
“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.”
Samantha – Dental Assistant
Bio coming one day!
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.
Kristin — Hygienist
Hello my name is Kristin, and I was born and raised in Lynnwood, Washington. Recently my Husband and I moved to Everett, Washington in 2020. I chose Dentistry because I wanted to be a part of creating healthy, strong and confident smiles!
I’ve been in Dentistry since 2013! I was originally a Pediatric Dental Assistant for 7 years, as I was continuing my education on becoming a Dental Hygienist. I attended Seattle Central College and graduated from their Dental Hygiene Program in September 2020. October 2020 I was given the opportunity to work with the LVD team and it has been an absolute dream! Not only Dr. Tsen & Dr. Chan as well as the entire staff but, all of their patients are just amazing to work with! I am extremely blessed to work with such an amazing and caring team when it comes to our patients and their overall health.
Outside of the dental office my passions are working with and giving back to my community as much as I can. I am a huge fan of sports and love cheering on our Seattle teams. I enjoy being outdoors either hiking, camping, attending concerts or floating on a river. I love trying new foods and exploring new places and taking weekend trips or drives. I enjoy traveling and exploring new states or countries as I enjoy learning the history behind them. Family and friends mean everything to me as I am consistently with them. Furthermost, I love education and learning new things to better myself and my community. As I work full-time with LVD I am currently in Eastern Washington University’s Masters of Public Health Program (MPH) full-time, as I am hoping to graduate in June 2023! I am beyond thrilled to not only continue to give back to my community but also work with and get to know each and everyone of you at LVD!
