Julie, RDHDental Hygienist - Member Since 2015
Hello, I am Julie and I’m pleased to say I am a part of a great team at Light Dental Studios. Even as a recent addition to Light dental studios, I know they not only provide the highest quality of care they do it with happiness. Everyone really cares about each and every patient.
I grew up in a small town of Buckley, WA and always had a passion to provide oral hygiene care. In 2013, I decided to move to Yakima to pursue my Associates in Dental Hygiene at Yakima Valley Community College. I can say it was one of the best experiences in my life. Not only do I love providing oral care to my patients, I love educating them about their oral health. Together we can accomplish so much more!
In my free time I enjoy playing with my five nephews, trips to the Oregon coast for some dunes riding, and hiking. If it’s not raining, you can bet I’m enjoying the outdoors.
I’m so excited to grow as a Dental Hygienist with Light Dental Studios and I look forward to seeing you soon.

We all have the same goal of making our patients' dental experience with us extraordinary. I work with such a fun and talented group of people that each is better than the last.Although I have traveled all over, Tacoma is my home. My son, Raidyn, and I love to go camping during the summer.

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.
