I have been blessed to be with Ferndale Dental Clinic since 1999. I was born and raised in Bellingham, WA, graduated from WWU with a BS in Community Health Education in 1995 and with an AS in Dental Hygiene from Portland Community College in 1997. I am married to Jeff, my high school sweetheart, and we have a sports loving son, a horse-crazy daughter and a 104 lb. black lab named Gus. In my spare time, I love to garden, travel, be outside in the sunshine, read, exercise, and watch football! I love my job and am convinced that we have the best patients in the world at Ferndale Dental Clinic!


Dental Assistant


Dental Philosophy & Services

In continuation of Dr. Tucker’s dental practice, I would like to strive to carry on the excellence he has provided to his patients over the past 64 years. He has made it a goal to provide the best quality dental care each and every day of practice, and I would like to do the same. With Dr. Tucker’s mentorship, other local dentists mentorship, continuing dental education, and the fellowship of two dental study clubs, my desire is to provide high quality dentistry.
With that being said, patient comfort is a major priority for us. This includes gentle touch, patient control, and complete explanations about procedures and treatment options. We understand that coming to the dentist isn’t something that you do everyday and for many people there is some sort of anxiety related to that. Our goal is to keep you relaxed and comfortable as much as possible.

I pride myself on making sure the patient is knowledgeable about their oral health and the options they have to restore their teeth and oral health. I like to be completely honest when providing care for our patients.
Our overarching goal is to provide high quality dental care as well as make sure our patients are taken care of and that they are happy and satisfied. With our patient centered approach each and every day, our practice has continued to receive confident referrals’ from our content patients. We look forward to seeing you!
