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 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!
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 Crissa and I am one of the Dental Assistants here at EPDG. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Community Psychology from UW- Bothell. Currently, I am enrolled in the Hygiene program at PIMA where I plan to graduate in May of 2021. I am enjoying the additional experience of working in a Pediatric Clinic while in school.
I am a first generation Filipino American born and raised in the Puget Sound. I have a big family who I am really close with, along with my dog Kobe (named after Kobe Bryant).
In my free time, I love working out at the gym and going to concerts- my favorite (to date) was Drake. I enjoy makeup and have been a makeup artist previously. I also really enjoy self-help and spirituality podcasts (Oprah’s is a favorite!).
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 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.
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
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.
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.
