Front Office Training and Development - Member since 2012
I have been in the dental field for over 12 years and what I love most is the relationships you build with your patients. From making an appointment to helping you understand your insurance benefits and getting to see you every 6 months to catch up, I am here to help you. I feel incredibly lucky to have found a home with Light Dental Studios, this is a company that is passionate about their people! Patients and staff alike! In my time off I love to spend time with my three beautiful kiddos! We love to go camping and spending time with family and friends.
BeccaFront Office - Member since 2016
My name is Becca and I have been apart of the Light Dental Studios family since March 2016. I joined the team in the front office with only experience as a receptionist, but no dental experience. Light Dental studios has taken me under their wing and given me an immeasurable amount of training that I will continue to benefit from in the years to come.
My first experience with the company was as a patient who was coming in needing an emergency visit. I had recently had work done at another office and was in A LOT of pain. Both the front office and the doctors were able to get me in same day and get me out of pain. I was so grateful and from that point on was a fan of LDS.
As an employee, I love that I can go to work with pride knowing that I'm apart of a company that does top notch work. They really do put the customer first, and as a whole we all strive to give each and every person who comes through our doors a personal and positive experience.

Aria, RDHDental Hygenist - Member since 2009
In 2009, I found my second family with Dr. Adam Poyfair and his team in Lakewood. I love coming in to the office each day knowing that I am part of a great team that prides itself in giving every patient an amazing dental experience. In 2011, I started working at our Puyallup location on Fridays with Dr. Broughton, Dr. Dunn, and Dr. Davis. I can personally say that when you walk into any of our offices you are going to receive the BEST dental care by some amazing people who not only love what they do but believe that everyone deserves compassionate care and respect.My husband Kyle and I live in Enumclaw with our dog Hatori and cat Pai Mae. We both come from large families and have 15 amazing nieces and nephews. When we are not at family get togethers, sporting events, or concerts, we spend our time backpacking, dirt biking, and enjoying everything life has to offer. **2011 Outstanding Team Member of the Year
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.

Being a dental hygienist has been one of my biggest accomplishments. I graduated from Pierce College with an Associates in Dental Hygiene. I have worked with many offices and dental professionals, Light Dental Studios is now my home. It has been a great pleasure working with Light Dental Studios and all the amazing team members. I enjoy meeting new people, and being a Dental Hygienist gives me the opportunity to meet very many new faces and great personalities. I love educating all my patients about the the oral connection to the body and the many ways to manage oral health. I am fluent in Moldovian and a few other Slavic languages.

AdrianDental Assistant - Member since 2007
I have been a dental assistant since 2006 and have not looked back. I love what I do every single day. I wake up in the morning and think about the patients I get to work with that day and I truly look forward to starting my day. I have become very close to my patients over the years and love seeing each and every one of their smiles. Working with Dr. Poyfair and my team in Lakewood has brought it's own joys as well. 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. I spend most of my other weekends doing house projects, gardening, riding my motorcycle, spending time with my boyfriend and good friends, volunteering in my local community, rooting for the Mariners and Seahawks (even during bad seasons), canning, and making jewelry.
MaliahDental Assistant - Member since 2015
After working for several dental companies upon graduation from Dental Assisting school, I was excited to find a company I could call home. I could start building my career with amazing co-workers and patients. Light Dental Studios has been that for me and I have already started to build wonderful and life-long relationships with my teammates and patients. Every day at work I am happy to be there, helping create the best experience for all our patients. I am so blessed to be a part of such a great dental family!
Kenyetta, DADental Assistant - Member since 2016
Kenyetta or AKA "Kiki" has been a member of Light Dental Studios since 2016 after graduating from Fortis College In Maryland. What drew Kiki to Light Dental Studios is that they were an office that genuinely cares about their patients and considers them a friend instead of just an appointment. After reading positive reviews everywhere she looked and just knew she had to be part of this team. When Kiki isnt spending time with patients she likes to read, play video games or spend time with family.

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.
