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.

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.

Ashley graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Pierce College. As a child, Ashley had extreme dental fear which is what ultimately prompted her to enter the dental field. Her goal has been to give patients outstanding care and make them feel comfortable at each visit. Ashley values the relationships she builds with her patients and loves being part of the LDS team.
When not helping improve smiles, Ashley can be found spending time with her family, especially her new baby. Ashley spends her time outdoors; she loves camping, wakeboarding, and all things fitness. She has spent time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity overseas and hopes to continue volunteering throughout the community.
Dental 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.

Kiki has been with Light Dental Studios since 2016. She loves what she does! Her patients are like family and she gets excited to meet new and reconnect with old faces everyday. You will love her contagious energy and bubbly personality! Originally an East Coast gal, Washington is her new and permanent home. After moving back to her roots of Maryland for a year, she finally got the chance to return to Washington - and specifically to Light Dental Studios. Kiki is so happy to be back in the South Puget Sound! In her free time she enjoys playing video games, playing roller derby, and experimenting in the kitchen (some experiments are extreme fails!)
