Meet the Clinical Team
Hi I’m Amanda, and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. I had braces TWICE growing up and am excited to be in the dental field, doing something I enjoy and helping to make a difference.
I grew up in Renton and in my spare time I love to spend time with my family. I have three nieces and a nephew who I love to hang out with whenever I get the chance.
I also am a big movie buff, my favorite is the Harry Potter series (both the books and movies!) I enjoy camping and spending time outdoors. I also enjoy bowling with my friends and family, although I’m not great at it. It’s been a while, but I can ride a unicycle AND juggle, but I promise not to do either while working with patients!
Hi, I’m Blake, and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. My background is in customer service and I love kids. I’m excited to start my dental career here, and getting to work with kids is an added bonus.
I was born and raised in Washington and went to Redmond High School. In my free time, I enjoy sports! I played softball for 11 years, and still like going to sporting events and playing sports. I have a dog and a cat, and I love getting to spend time with my family. I am also a Foodie! I’m an adventurous eater and I love to get out and try new things!
Hi, I’m Ellie, and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. I love working with people and have spent a lot of time in customer service roles. Working with kids is something I am particularly excited about. I grew up babysitting and spending time with kids, so this was the perfect fit!
I grew up in the Maple Valley area. My family has property on the Skykomish River and we love to camp and spend as much time in the summer on the river. In my spare time I enjoy spending (socially distanced) time with my friends and family. I am really close with my grandma. I also like working out and going to the gym. My dad and I look for a chance to golf whenever possible! I am also really into astrology and like listening to spirituality podcasts.
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.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Richelle and I am a registered dental hygienist. I’ve been working at Eastside Pediatric Dental Group since 2002. I started working for the doctors as a dental assistant, expanding my experience to the front desk as business coordinator, then going on to graduate from Columbia Basin College with my Associates in Dental Hygiene. I love working with children for their genuine spirit and humor. It is exciting for me to help children have a fun and educational dental experience.
I love spending time with family. With two kids, my husband and I stay pretty busy. We love to take trips over the mountains, hike, snowshoe, bike and anything else that we can do together.
