Dental Hygienist

Welcome and thank you for choosing Yakima Smiles as your dental practice! I truly believe in the philosophy of Yakima Smiles and have been here since BEFORE Dr. Nathe joined the practice as owner. In fact, I worked with Dr. Nathe at the Yakima Valley Farm Worker’s Clinic and recruited him to come on board at Yakima Smiles! From the very beginning, I have admired Dr. Nathe’s ethical ideals to delivering the best dentistry possible including the all the latest in technology. He sets the highest standards and I have never seen him waiver from these goals. We have a great team who enjoy each other and working together which reflects in our patient care.

The connection between good oral health and overall health becomes more apparent daily. Our goal is to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal dental health. We have seen such positive life changing experiences and I love being a part of that.

My husband, Dale, and I have been married for 32 years. We have a daughter and three grandchildren to which we are devoted. Having family gatherings is our focus outside of work.
