Meet the Clinical Team

Angie Angie

Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Angie and I am a Dental Assistant here at EPDG. I joined the team when I graduated from PIMA Medical Institute in 2015. I love knowing that I can take part in encouraging good oral healthcare and teaching children the importance of it. The patients at EPDG are what make the place so enjoyable and fun!

When I’m not at work I enjoy hiking, jamming out on my bass guitar with my worship team, and volunteering at my Church.


Ashlee Ashlee

Dental Assistant

Hi my name is Ashlee, and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. I went to the PIMA Medical Institute for dental assistant school and I LOVE working with kids! I come from a big family and decided that I only wanted to work at a pediatric dental office.

When I'm not at work I have a daughter who is very active.

We spend a lot of our free time going to the park, visiting the zoo and going to movies. I also enjoy photography, graphic design, crafting, traveling and good food!


Colleen Colleen

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, I’m Colleen and I am a registered dental hygienist. I have been working in dentistry since 2002. I started at another pediatric dental clinic as a dental assistant and then after becoming a hygienist I worked in general dentistry until the opportunity to join EPDG came along.

I have lived in the Puget Sound since I was 12 years old. I went to Eastlake High School in Sammamish and received my AA in Dental Assisting and AA in Dental Hygiene from Lake Washington Technical College.

When I’m not busy at work I love to snowboard in the winter and spend time with friends in the summer. I also collect vintage lunch boxes and spend my summer checking out garage sales to find a new gem to add to my collection.  In the fall I am a huge football fan – the Seahawks and Michigan Wolverines are my favorite teams!


Emily Emily

Dental Assistant

Hi I’m Emily, and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. I have always wanted to work in the dental field and with children, including children with disabilities. My brother is disabled and has been a patient of Dr. Quinby’s for as long as I can remember. During one of his recent visits I learned about the opportunity to become a dental assistant here at EPDG – it’s a perfect fit!

I grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley with my family. I recently became engaged and my fiancé and I bought a house in Monroe. When I’m not busy at work, I enjoy going for hikes and I love to kayak! I also enjoy hanging out at my house and gardening.


Kristen Kristen

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Kristen! I've worked at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group since 1997 as a Dental Assistant. Prior to joining EPDG, I completed a year long dental assisting course at Lake Washington Technical College. My responsibilities at EPDG are to educate our patients and their parents about the importance of great oral health. I split my days working behind the scenes with our business team, and in the afternoons I work downstairs with patients.

I live in Bellevue with my husband and our two boys. My boys are growing so fast and keeping me very busy! After a busy week at work, and home, I love to end the week with take out 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.


Kristin Kristin

Dental Assistant

Hi! My name is Kristin. I joined Eastside Pediatric Dental Group in 2008 as a dental assistant. I love working with kids, their parents, helping make the experience in our office a great one, and furthering their dental education. As a senior assistant, I also help facilitate training of our new team members to support them in providing the best care for our patients.

Prior to working in the dental field, I worked for 18 years in the restaurant industry, and I continue to do this on the weekends. In my spare time I enjoy relaxing and spending time with my husband, our animals, family and friends.


Pam

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Pam. I'm a Registered Dental Hygienist with a Bachelor of Science degree from Oregon Health Sciences University. I'm married and my husband is a collegiate football coach. We have two grown sons. My oldest son received his Doctorate in Engineering from UCLA and my youngest son is a catcher in MLB, currently with the San Francisco Giants.

I had the pleasure of working for Eastside Pediatric Dental Group five years before we moved out of state. When the opportunity arose to come back part time, I jumped at the chance. It is a privilege to work in such a wonderful office where they make each child feel special.
