Meet the Business Team


Practice Manager

Hi, my name is Jessica. I’ve been a dental assistant since 1998. My career in dentistry started my senior year in high school, when I worked after school as a part time assistant. I soon realized that adult dentistry was not for me, but working with the kiddos was the right fit! I worked as an assistant in a pediatric office for 8 years before joining Eastside Pediatric Dental Group in 2006.

Since joining EPDG, I have expanded my duties from dental assistant to business coordinator, sedation coordinator, and assisting with billing and insurance. My duties have expanded over the year and I was recently promoted to Practice Manager. This position keeps me moving and I love it. I feel very lucky to have so many opportunities to learn and take care of any needs a patient may have.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cuddling with my two frenchies, and creating projects such as customized clothing, signs and mugs. I also love spending time with my daughter exploring our local areas and venturing to new states and even other countries.


Business Coordinator/Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Kristen! I’ve worked at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group since 1997. Prior to joining EPDG, I completed a year-long dental assisting course at Lake Washington Technical College. I love getting to educate our patients and their parents about the importance of great oral health. Over my 20+ years with this team, I have worked as a dental assistant, continuing care coordinator, and trainer for our dental assistant training program, and have recently transitioned to help with billing and insurance.

I live in Des Moines with my husband and our two boys. My boys are growing fast and keeping me very busy! After a busy week at work and home, I love to end the week with takeout and a movie night at home with all my guys! Some of my favorite hobbies include reading, knitting, cross-stitching, sewing, and spending time outdoors with my family.


Business Coordinator/Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Ashlee! I joined Eastside Pediatric Dental Group in 2014 as a Dental Assistant. Prior to working here, I attended PIMA Medical Institute for their dental assisting program. I have always had a passion for working with children, so I knew I wanted to work in a pediatric office before I even finished my program. It excites me to help children and their families have a fun and educational experience here!
I live in the Puyallup area with my two girls. In our free time, we enjoy going on trips, going to movies, hanging out with family, and just having a good time together! When my girls and I are not busy together, I enjoy photography and event decorating/planning.
