Meet Emily! She’s a Washington native, being born and raised in Sumner and living within the Tacoma/Puyallup area after high school. The South Sound is where she calls home, and she’s excited to have found Light Dental Studios to call her work home. With 10+ years of customer service experience, she understands the impact an exceptional experience can have on patients and is looking forward to being a part of those visits. Emily is grateful for having found our team of such caring, positive, and hard-working individuals and she knows you’ll feel the same way and leave with a smile on your face!

When she’s not in the office you can find her tending to her houseplants, out in her yard, or spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys traveling and working out, as well as good coffee and great food. She can’t wait to continue our legacy of exceptional care!

Deiona was born and raised in Seattle proper and moved to Tacoma several years ago. After 20 years in the salon industry, she decided it was time for a change and hoped she would be lucky enough to find a company that truly understood the importance of great customer service. Pursuing a career in the dental industry was always of great interest to her. She is extremely happy and honored to be a part of our team and looks forward to learning and growing with a group of professionals that hold the same core values as herself.

When Deiona has free time, she enjoys spending it all with her immediate and extended family. She enjoys cooking and baking for her husband and daughters. One of her favorite things to do is show off all the PNW's hidden gems to her family and explore the outdoors.
