Meet the TeamIntroducing our Kirkland Dental Office Team!
Office Manager/EFDA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
As Office Manager at Paramount Dental Center, I strive to get to know our clients on a individual basis. My goal is to understand where you are coming from and how we can help you get to where you want to be. I want you to walk out our doors understanding your treatment, the cost of treatment, and how insurance will assist you. I have been working with Dr. Del Rosario since 2008- most of you have seen me in the back assisting him. While I am not at the office, I spend my all time with my husband and our 3 dogs. We are currently expecting our first child in April of 2015. You can also find me over at Kirkland Crossfit (www.kirklandcrossfit.com)!
Insurance ManagerI’m the Insurance Manager – my main responsibilities are handling insurance claims, payments, and payroll/benefits. I work part-time, mostly behind the scenes and from home so you may not see me in the office, but I am still working hard to take care of your insurance billing and payments to help your experience in our office go smoothly. Outside the office, I am a Registered Dietitian with a passion for learning about health and fitness. I can often be found running on roads and trails around our beautiful area. I’ve completed several marathons. I also enjoy traveling, reading, skiing, and spending time with my husband, Colin, and our two children, Caleb and Leah.
HygienistAs one of the dental hygienists for our wonderful Kirkland dentist team since 2004, I enjoy being a part of patients’ dental health while having the opportunity to know them on a personal level. I feel it is important to get to know each patient as a person, not just their teeth. Striving to deliver individualized care to help each of our patients get to optimal dental health is a priority for me. Outside of the office, you can find me and my husband, Allen, enjoying life with our three children – Eli, Emmie, and Eva – and our huge extended family!
HygienistAs a Dental Hygienist, my goal is to help our patients achieve and maintain an optimal level of oral health through routine hygiene or periodontal care, preventive treatments, and education regarding good oral hygiene habits. I find the most rewarding part of my job is building long lasting relationships with my patients while guiding them to a state of oral health and happiness. In my free time, my husband and I like to travel. I also enjoy running, crossfit, and spending time with my family and friends.
HygienistWhat I like about my job as a hygienist is being able to help my patients to improve their oral health. I believe keeping healthy teeth and gums are an essential part of a healthy life. It feels great to see my patients’ sparkly teeth and happy smiles after their cleanings with me! Every patient is important to me, and my goal is to make sure you are comfortable in my chair during your cleaning. I grew up in Japan and have been in Washington for 15 years. I am blessed to have my wonderful husband and two children. In my free time, I enjoy watching my kids’ sports games, hiking, and playing tennis.
Clinical Assistant/EFDAMy role in our Kirkland dental office as an Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) allows me to provide our patients with skilled and efficient care. While working chairside with our doctors, or one-on-one, it is my goal to put patients at ease with my gentle demeanor and funny disposition. I’ve worked in the dental field for over 18 years and I love what I do! I get the pleasure of working with such a great team. It’s always a joy to come to work every day and see their smiling faces. When I’m not at work I am Mom to two amazing boys, Kian and Landon. We enjoy spending time on the water and in the sun. My hobbies are golfing, traveling, wakeboarding, and an occasional triathlon!
