We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

 

Aimee

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy getting to know my patients, learning about their lives so I can better meet their needs. I especially love seeing people receive great care at our practice, as they regain the confidence that comes with a beautiful and healthy smile. Working one-to-one with patients, I take X-rays, assess gum and oral health, and provide preventive cleanings and non-surgical gum care. A lot of my time with a patient focuses on education: I want them to know why it’s important to keep their mouth clean and give them the knowledge and tools needed to keep it healthy.

Originally from Oregon I now live in Lake Stevens with my husband and son. We live an active outdoors lifestyle, enjoying bike rides, hiking, and fishing. I also like working in my yard and with my husband on home improvement projects. My son participates in many school activities and I love supporting his interests.

 

Heather

Financial Coordinator

I am responsible for treatment planning, insurance verifying, and billing.  My job allows me to help patients understand their proposed treatment plan and ensure they get the most out of their insurance benefits.  I love playing a role in helping our patients create a smile they are proud of!

When not working, I love time with my family. I am married and a proud mom of 2 sons and 2 fish!  We thrive on spending time together and being outdoors.  Some of my favorite activities are yoga, trail running, and mountain biking.

 

Kristen

Scheduling Coordinator

I am the first person to greet you when walking into our practice. I look forward to my days at the office, as they’re spent talking and laughing with our patients, and overall building real relationships with them. We have a positive, happy environment and patients immediately know they’re welcome! I used to be a dental assistant but transitioned to the front office because I wanted time to talk with and get to know patients. I answer our phones, set appointments, and am in charge of the schedule, making sure each patient is seen on time and has plenty of time for their visit.

My time off is spent with my family, and very large extended family.  My husband and I have a very busy 3 year old son who keeps us on our toes and we are very excited to be expecting a little girl in January 2019.

 

LeAnne

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am happy to build relationships with people and help keep them healthy by taking care of their oral health. We have an amazing team: everyone genuinely cares about our patients, personally! I offer preventive and periodontal cleanings, oral and periodontal exams, and a lot of patient education. It’s important people understand how the health of their mouth and body affect each other and what they can do to keep both in great shape. Seeing a patient make positive changes in their home care routine makes me smile!

My husband of twelve years and I welcomed our second child, a daughter Viola, in March 2018. She joins her older brother Howie who was born in February 2016. We live in Marysville with our orange tabby cat, Bernie.  We keep busy with home improvement projects and are looking forward to traveling as a family.

 

Rachel

Dental Assistant

I joined Dr. Dickinson's team in 2018 after nearly 10 years in the dental field.  I am so pleased to be a part of such a kind and talented team.  My favorite part of the job is when I am able to help a patient to overcome their dental fears and feel comfortable in the office.  Its great to see the anxiety dissolve away and see patients leave happy and excited about their smile.  I assist Dr. Dickinson by seating and preparing each patient for their visit and then supporting him throughout each procedure.

I have lived in Arlington since 1990, graduating from Arlington High School in 2003.  My time away from the office is spent with my husband and two kids.  We enjoy camping, spending time outdoors, and doing projects around our home.

 

Tawnya

Dental Assistant

When a visit is finished and the patient is relaxed, smiling, and happy because they’ve had a great experience, I’m thrilled! It’s a great pleasure to work with such a caring and talented team, with everyone focused on each patient’s comfort and needs. I work chairside, assisting Dr. Dickinson with dental procedures, including extractions, crowns, impression, and implants. I especially love assisting with pediatric restorations: seeing a happy child’s smile at the end always makes me smile.

When not caring for patients, I enjoy animals, my garden and working on my house, and decorating and making crafts. I find a lot of joy in being a foster parent, too.
