Hey, my name is Lindzey, and I've been with LDS since Dec of 2015 in the front office. I started out as an assistant in 2007 at a location in Federal Way, from which I was there for four years. I took time off to be a stay at home mom, during that time I welcomed two amazing kids. In my free time I love spending time with them and doing anything outdoors. I love trying to restaurants and travelling.
CaseyFront Office - Member since 2017
My name is Casey, the Lacey clinic has been my first time working in the dental field, I am beyond excited to work for such an amazing company that makes everyone from patients to employees feel like family. My goal as a front desk staff is from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, you feel comfortable, special and part of the LDS family. Starting as a patient for light dental has defiantly given me two perspectives into a patients needs. Having a history of patient care on a medical side has given me the passion for patient care and I am very excited to bring that to the dental world. On free time my fiancé and I are beginning the journey into volunteer firefighting which also speaks to my love for patient care, we also love hiking, horseback riding and camping.

From making sandwiches to solving complex financial issues, he’s always enjoyed creating positive interactions with those around him.

Amity , RDHDental Hygienist - Member Since 2015
Hi my name is Amity and I am very excited to join the Light Dental Studios team! I enjoy helping patients improve their oral health through education and one of the great joys of my job is treating and preventing periodontal disease. I firmly believe when you understand what is going on in your mouth, it is much easier to make decisions about your oral health. I am happy to join Light Dental Studios where patients have the benefit of multiple locations with the feel of a small dental family. I hope you'll smile at every visit to see me at the Lacey office. I was born and raised in Tacoma and love living here in the Pacific Northwest! I love our rain, but when the sun it out, so am I! In my spare time I love going on long drives along the water, dancing ballet and I enjoy volunteering at my mom's preschool.

ShayleaDental Assistant - Member since 2011
Hello everyone and welcome to the Lacey Light Dental Studios. I'm Dr. Collins' dental assistant. I have been working as a dental assistant for over four years, but found my home with Light Dental Studios in 2011. I am thankful every day to have found such a wonderful and exciting company to work for. I am passionate about dentistry and seeing my patients' new smiles. It's the patients that make me excited to go to work every day. I love every part of dentistry, but my favorite is seeing the transformation of fearful patients become more and more comfortable with each visit.I was born and raised in Shelton and now live on the west side of Olympia. I am a PNW girl at heart and cannot see myself living anywhere else. In my spare time I enjoy photography, traveling, live music, hiking, and going to baseball games with my boyfriend and family.

Let's Get Started
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.
