I have been with Stapleton Dental since 2011 and have loved every minute of it. I started in the dental field in 1998, just by happenstance, and did not imagine it would be my career! To calm fears and answer questions is the most rewarding part of my job. There’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patient's face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance and the unknown of treatment to come out the other end with an even bigger and better smile. Outside of the office, my family is my #1 hobby and priority. My husband and I have two great boys who keep us busy with all of their sports and activities.
I'm one of the three energetic hygienists you'll meet at Stapleton Dental! Dental hygiene came as an easy choice for me because I learned from and worked for my hometown dentist in high school. I also come from a long line of female dental professionals. Stapleton Dental is made up of amazing individuals who have come together to make an exceptional dental experience for our patients. Our patients, along with my co-workers, truly make this a home-away-from-home for me. On my off time you'll find me soaking up the sun by the pool, enjoying sporting events, drinking coffee!, hosting a dinner party, or Face-Timing my family in Florida.
Hey! I'm Kristin and I'm one of the lovely dental hygienists at Stapleton Dental! I love working at Stapleton Dental because of my awesome patients, our fun new location, and my wonderful work sisters. I enjoy dentistry because I get to meet lots of different people and I like educating people. In my spare time I like going back to Seattle to visit my family, going to brunch, doing things outdoors, naps, and kitchen dance parties!

Hi I'm Ivona and I am an EDDA (Expanded Duties Dental Assistant). I got into dentistry because of my love of art. Making pretty teeth and changing people's smiles is what I enjoy most about my job. The best thing about being a part of the Stapleton dental family is that at the end of the day we are not just co-workers we are friends having fun while doing what we love. When I'm out of my scrubs I'm always on the go with my hubby and three kids. I enjoy baking as well as my endless art projects and I can never say no to a good book or a concert!
