Meet the Team
LaineyRegistered Dental Hygienist
I have been practicing dental hygiene since 2005. I graduated top of my class from Pierce College and have loved every minute I’ve spent in the dental field. After breaking my jaw (and multiple teeth) snowboarding at Mt. Baker in ’98, I developed a new appreciation for the oral cavity and all of its surrounding periodontal tissues (and how it affects the entire body). I’ve had root canals, crowns, extractions, and an implant and can completely relate to every patient that comes into the office. My most favorite part of the job is getting to know my patients, laughing with them, teaching them hygiene skills, and helping to ease their dental anxiety. I adore traveling- anywhere hot with exotic animals to admire- and spending time with my amazing pit bull/lab Bella (affectionately known as Boo). I spend my spare time volunteering at Tacoma Humane Society, helping to educate people on dog breeds, discriminations, and misconceptions, as well as fostering older dogs. I am happiest outdoors (when it’s not raining) and spend my spare time hiking, gardening, and reading. I’m super excited to be the latest addition to our team as I love everyone in the office, and their dedication to patient care is unsurpassable. It’s fabulous knowing that patients always come first here, and every staff member will give 110% to make sure our patients leave with a smile on their face.
