I have had the privilege of working in Bonney Lake for almost 7 years. It's truly a blessing to work with such a wonderful group of people.I have worked with and taken care of people most of my life. I believe that it is important to have our patients not only feel comfortable, but to give them a reason to look forward to their next visit. I absolutely love our patients and enjoy interacting with and getting to know them individually. Having a personal connection makes my job fun and very rewarding. My goal is that we offer a professional, safe, and fun atmosphere from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave.
I have been married over 23 years to my husband, Clay. We have 2 grown daughters and our son is a sophomore at WRHS. We also have a grandson who will be 2 in January and he is so much fun!
I love spending time with family, friends, and just people in general. Some of my hobbies are cooking, camping, gardening, canning, soup making, reading, writing, and doing anything crafty.

Amber, RDHDental Hygienist - Member since 2012
Educating and motivating patients to achieve optimal oral health is one of my passions. I aspire to promote oral health by educating the community and allied health professionals about the significance of oral health’s impact to the quality of life. I started my career as a dental assistant and now work as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I earned an Associates of Science degree in Dental Hygiene at Lake Washington Institute of Technology. During my time at Lake Washington I’ve gained many leadership, proficiency, and organizational skills. I graduated top of my class receiving awards in oral health and restorative procedures. I am currently working towards obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene to expand my skills and knowledge in areas of public health, teaching, research, business and marketing. I am a Bonney Lake native and very excited to be part of the Bonney Lake team. I am blessed to work with work team members that strive to increase knowledge of oral disease prevention and to motivate individuals to adopt healthy behaviors. I enjoy being outdoors and active including shooting hoops, running, hiking and snowboarding. I love spending time with my friends, family, and two miniature dachshunds.

I am particularly thrilled to be working with staff members that hold themselves to such high standards and take pride in a job well done. Employing a gentle touch, gaining patient trust, and seeing improvement in a patient’s oral health inspire me on a daily basis. A graduate of Yakima Valley Community College’s Department of Dental Hygiene, I recently completed a Bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington.
On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend Alan and watching his son Dylon blossom, as he leaves home to attend Virginia Tech University. I also enjoy reading, bike riding, and escaping the rain of Western Washington to enjoy the beautiful sunshine of the Wenatchee Valley and Lake Chelan areas.

David, RDHDental Hygienist - Member since 2017
Dave is one of our wonderful Bonney Lake dental hygienists. He has seen a lot in his past thirty seven years as a hygienist. He graduated in 1980 from Eastern Washington with a bachelor of science degree in dental hygiene. in the eighties he worked the small practices of Sequim and Port Angeles. he learned to treat on an individual basis, one person and prophy at a time. He was also state treasurer and vice president for the Washington State Dental Hygienists Association at that time. He helped plan the state convention. Since that he has enjoyed his 25 year (and counting) job doing traditional hygiene, restorative, and anesthetic. He enjoys working in the same office for years. Seeing the same patients at 6 month recalls for years at a time. Patients see this and comment to others who become new patients. His enthusiasm with Light Dental Studios and our approach to patient care and dentistry had sparked an interest in Dave. He enjoys working with diverse staff who all have the same focus for the same goal. That is to deliver the upmost in treatment quality to patients at anyone of our practices. Here, he feels he is a professional part of a group of specialists not just a cog in a business machine. The whole office helps you to deliver to our patients what Light Dental Studios does and is. Dave feels he is now better equipped than ever to deliver care at a higher level. One patient at a time.

I have always loved going to the dentist and fell in love with the dental industry after doing a job shadow in high school. I love my job! I'm always excited to go to work and see who will be coming in that day. People often ask me why I chose to work with teeth and I tell them I love what I do for the atmosphere.

Light Dental Studios has been my first opportunity to work in the dental field and it has not disappointed. The amount of effort that our doctors, assistants, hygienists, and front office put forth to ensure that patients are receiving the best care possible is overwhelming. Although I have only been a part of the team for less than a year it has been extremely easy to fit in and become part of the family. No matter what location you find yourself in know that you are in good, capable hands and that genuinely care.

What People Are Saying
I have never felt so welcomed and relaxed at a dentist office. Everyone here is so friendly and accommodating. They really make you feel apart of them. They are beyond willing to make sure you are comfortable and always take the time to understand your needs and expectations.
I have never been a fan of dentist they scare me! But from the second I walked in every staff member made me feel welcome and they all made sure my experience was second to none!!! Is it weird im looking forward to going back!
Through the whole process, every one of them continually asked if I was okay and asked if there was anything they could do for me. The procedure didn't hurt a bit, thanks to the doctors listening to their patient. A rare find today. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and efficiency of this office!
Amazing! Had an emergency, walked into their office, BOOM! Instantly taken care of and was provided with some of the best care I have ever experienced. Staff is friendly and genuine and their fun! My teeth will definitely see brighter days with this crew!
I am kind of a fearful patient. They talk to me and treat me like a person explain everything well. They are reassuring, and let me know if I need a break. They manage my fear.
Light Dental seems to be much more efficient, with up to date tools and technology than other places my friends go to. I am happy to find a place that can handle both kids and adults, and make our dental experiences easy, and stress free.
Great place to go to have your dental experience. I'm relocating to another state and I'm considering flying back to the state of Washington to see this dental office for any future work, cleaning or recommendations. I trust this place and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
The doctor and the staff are very courteous and extremely professional. They do everything they can to make me feel comfortable during my appointments.
I am very happy with their services they provide me. I have been to several other dentists but they are the best, I really enjoy my visits in their office.
