Below are the members of the MDC team and these are their stories
I have been working in dentistry since 1995 and have witnessed many changes. One constant, however, are our providers at MDC. I am proud to say that I get to work with the best of the best! As a practice administrator I have various duties to keep our office running smoothly such as backing up all team members, scheduling meetings, hiring new employees, and overseeing daily operations. I try to be open and honest with all of our patients because I want them to feel like part of our dental family.
My husband, Clayton, and I have seven children and one dog. In the last year, our oldest has flown the coop and is off serving our country as a United States Marine. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, fishing, and of course shopping!
My job is to help our patients understand their financial responsibilities with their dental care. Working in the front office of our dental practice brings me joy as I interact with patients, sharing stories with them and getting to know them on a personal level. I personally treat every patient like a guest in my home. Our doctors are very professional and want the absolute best for our patients at Meridian Dental Clinic. When I go home at night, I am at ease knowing our doctors have truly given their all, to each and every patient.
My husband and I have been married going on 24 years and have two young men in our lives, both in high school. Our family pet knows he is human and lounges around the house all day on the king pillow top. Yep, he is loved! Our family also enjoys the great outdoors as much as possible!
Something fun about me is that I love fast cars and love singing at the top of my lungs like no one is ever listening. I call these “Tamara Sue Concerts!”

Restorative Scheduling Coordinator
I was originally drawn to the dental field because I believe in the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile. My experience in customer service and satisfaction insure that our patients have a wonderful experience in our office. I am passionate about getting and keeping our patients healthy and happy. Often, I will be the first one to greet you with a smile when you arrive at MDC and I will know you by name!
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and riding my horse, Zephyr.

Bio Coming soon!
Restorative Scheduling Coordinator
I'm Christina and I am a Washington local! I've been working in the dental field since 1997. After 15 years of assisting in pediatric dentistry, I chose to join this AWESOME team at Meridian Dental Clinic. I enjoy greeting and visiting with our patients and assisting with their insurance and scheduling needs.
A few fun facts about myself that you probably do not know: my husband and I currently live in Covington with our 3 dogs. We enjoy sharing the wonderful world of Disneyland with our nieces and nephews. My favorite ride is the Tower of Terror.
As a registered dental hygienist for Meridian Dental Clinic, I have the pleasure of performing professional hygiene services, periodontal therapy, placing sealants and fillings, taking digital X-rays and intraoral photos, and making whitening trays. My favorite aspect of my job is educating my patients on how to improve their oral health and building trust with them. My goal is to provide a high standard of care to every patient I see. Over the years that I've worked as part of the Meridian Dental Clinic team, I've developed some incredible relationships with many patients and thoroughly enjoy seeing during their visits with us.
On a personal level, I am married and have two grown children, two Siberian Huskies, and a cat. I am a big sports fan and love football, baseball, and hockey. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit!
As a new member of Meridian Dental Clinic team, I am excited to build strong and lasting relationships with the wonderful patients at the office. One of the great aspects of MDC is the diversity that we have in our patient population. My goal as a hygienist is to treat and care for each patient individually according to their specific dental needs through preventive and therapeutic treatment as well as patient education.
Outside of work, I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities including hiking, canoeing and kayaking to name a few. I also love experimenting new recipes from one of my favorite websites, allrecipes.com. Three fun facts about myself: I am a twin, I have lived in four different countries (China, Japan, Canada, America), and "Friends" is my all-time favorite TV show. I have watched all ten seasons at least five times!
The most enjoyable part of being a dental hygienist for me is getting to know my patients and spending time educating and informing them about their dental health. Helping patients who are actually happy to be at the dental office is truly gratifying for me. I am dedicated to continued growth in the dynamic hygiene field, expanding my abilities further, not only as a dental professional, but on a personal level as well.
I have a passion for working with people and know what a great smile can do for them. I value exceptional patient care and work hard to provide that for every patient. A desire to learn the latest advancements in dental care and technology are what first attracted me to Meridian Dental Clinic. My interest in CEREC dentistry makes me a perfect fit for our office, and my gentle nature makes me a favorite with patients and my fellow team members.
My goal is to help every patient maintain a healthy mouth which equals a healthy body! Besides providing the most gentle and thorough care, I am able to build good relationships with my patients. This allows me to bring great rapport to the dental chair that provides confidence and comfort for patients in the care they are receiving.
Dentistry is the key to a healthy and great life! As a registered dental assistant my main responsibility is to help the doctors with all dental procedures and presenting patients with treatment plans. My favorite part, however, is giving our patients the care they need and deserve.
I feel really lucky to have found this office. The doctors are the most understanding people I have ever meet. I have learned so much from them and still am. The other assistants and hygienists have all become my personal friends they are a great group of girls to work with. We are all like a big family.
I am a single mother of three boys; they are my life outside of work. I do love what I do and I do work a lot but all my other time is for them. My sons are all sports players. We love sports and watching them, being outside, and doing things like camping or hiking. We also love the sun and swimming! I am very thankful of my children and career that I have!
Hi! My name is Rachel and I am a dental assistant at MDC. I have been working here for more than two years. Being at Meridian Dental Clinic has been one of the greatest opportunities for me as I know we offer the best care possible for our patients. Our doctors have done a fantastic job keeping our office up to date so we provide the latest technology in patient care. One thing our patients love about our office is the ability to get everything they need done in one place. We offer a great range of services at MDC: implants, extractions, one-appointment crowns, and Invisalign®, to name just a few. But keep reading! We also offer nitrous (laughing gas) for patient comfort.
I just recently moved to a new place so I am currently still getting settled. I'm a HUGE “Survivor” fan and have not missed one episode! I look forward to the day I will be on the show. Also, my sister just had a baby and he is the first boy of the family. He is truly a blessing!
I'm grateful to have such a wonderful place to work! I hope you take time to check out the rest of our website and YouTube channel. We look forward to seeing our MDC family grow!
I am committed to patient care and want to be certain all patients in our office have a hospitable, relaxing and comfortable dental appointment. I want our patients to understand the benefits of the latest treatment advances in dental care and “job one” is making sure they get the smile they’ve always wanted and deserve!
When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family and travel! One of my favorite past times is taking pictures.
