Amy

Hygienist

I am a 4th generation Skagitonian and feel blessed to call Skagit Valley Dental my "work home." Our team truly is like one large, happy family and we work hard to give our patients the best treatment available.

In my spare time, I enjoy horseback riding with my parents and my children, reading, and road tripping the US.

Julie

Hygienist

My husband and I are from La Conner, Washington. I joined the Skagit Valley Dental team after my grandma, a long time patient here, mentioned what a nice place it would be to work. She was right! My husband, Eric, and I started growing our family by adopting a golden retriever. We are excited for a new baby coming this spring. We decided to wait to find the gender, so we are burning with anticipation.

Amanda

Hygienist

I attended Eastern Washington University where I completed a 5 year Bachelor program for dental hygiene. The year following graduation, I married my husband, Michael, and we built a house in Stanwood, WA. We now have two sweet and super energetic little girls, Andi and Elle. 

I've been with Skagit Valley Dental since 2013 and love working with our patients here and getting to know them on a personal level. It is a rewarding feeling knowing I can positively affect someone's oral health with individualized treatment and care. Dental hygiene has always been a passion of mine and this profession allows me to learn something new every single day.

In my spare time I love gardening (flowers and veggies), watching the latest "binge-worthy" show on Netflix, reading, baking, working out and spending quality time with my family.

Laura

Hygienist

I was born in Quincy, MA and grew up in Las Vegas, NV. I joined the Navy in 1994 where I started my dental career as a dental assistant. The US Navy sent me to college. In 2004, I received my Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene. During my 15 years in the Military, I enjoyed honing my skills and helping my patients with their dental needs.

I've traveled throughout the South Pacific and have enjoy all of the diversity of cultures. My last duty station brought me to the beautiful Pacific North West in Oak Harbor, WA where I met the love of my life. We married in 2011. We have two "kids," a boy and a girl (miniture pinschers) and yes, they keep us busy the rest of the time. We love to go camping, being in the mountains, travel around the world to Scuba Dive. 

I recently joined the Skagit Valley Dental team. It has been a pleasure getting to know the patients here and working with the two doctors and the rest of the team.

Connie

Hygienist

I'm a Skagit Valley native, raised on a milk farm in the flats.  It was here that I learned my love of animals, especially cats. I live with my fiance and two cats. The staff here  call me the "cat lady" for good reason. After school I spent many years working as an assistant in a dental pediatric clinic and completed one more year of extra training to be EFDA certified. When I'm not at the clinic and working on projects with my soon to be husband, I spend time practicing as the lead singer in my rock band, "Betty Rocker."

Robyn

Assistant

I grew up in Southern California. After spending time in Bothell, Washington, I moved here to the Skagit Valley and was so excited when Darcie, the previous owner, let me join this dream team. The staff here call me "Rockin' Robyn" because they say I have the most energy. I love working here and especially love getting to know the patients and finding out fun, unique things about each one of them. My partner, Paul, and I recently adopted a puppy who we love dearly.

I've been working as an assistant for Skagit Valley Dental since 2003 and enjoy the camaraderie of our team.  We are always striving to learn the newest, most successful techniques for the high quality dentistry our patients are accustomed to.

After growing up in Sedro-Woolley and 23 years in the auto industry, I decided to explore something new. I joined the staff of Skagit Valley dental in 2011.

Donna

Office Manager

Originally trained as a dental assistant, I learned what I truly loved was working in the front office. I've worked with Skagit Valley Dental for over 25 years now and enjoy our team of wonderful professionals. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. We love being outdoors, camping, 4-wheeling, and watching a movie.
