Jocelyn

Registered Dental Assistant

Jocelyn has been with our office since 2007 and still looks forward to coming to work to be with "friendly-face" co-workers. She believes that is the feeling we give our patients as well. One of the things Jocelyn enjoys most about her job, aside from the variety of duties, is dealing with people and hearing from patients that being in the dental chair is a good learning experience after all. Prior to moving to Washington Jocelyn lived in California where she received her Registered Dental Assistant license, X-ray certification and Coronal Polish certification. The more she learned about the dental field, the more she realized that she wasn't alone in her childhood fears of the dentist and wanted to help patients, especially children, to overcome their fear of the dentist.

Staci

Dental Hygienist

Staci has been in the dental field since 1992, starting as a Dental Assistant, and then graduating from Clover Park Technical College. She then moved into the Front Office Manager position before finally going back to school to round off her career as a Dental Hygienist, graduating in 2010 from San Jacinto Valley College in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Staci has been married for 13 years to a wonderful husband, Eddie, and has a rambunctious but beautiful 3 year old little boy named Kelton.

Staci grew up in the Air Force, so she has traveled all over the world-starting in San Antonio, Texas. She then moved to Washington, the Phillipines, Spokane, Colorado, England, North Dakota, Tacoma, Idaho, California and then to Port Orchard, Washington. She loves to travel and has been to Belgium, Hawaii, Australia, Columbia, Canada and Mexico. She keeps busy caring for and riding her horses, hiking, swimming and doing most outdoor activities.

Staci got into the dental industry because after she graduated high school, her parents said "you need to do something" and since her father was the Dental Administrator in the military, and she grew up in a dental office, that sounded like the best way to go. It has been a great decision and she has never regretted it. She loves building relationships with new patients and also seeing her regular patients on a 3-6 month basis...Hint, Hint.
