Teresa at Puyallup Campus

Teresa

Office Manager - Member since 1997

I've had the pleasure of working with Light Dental Studios for over fifteen years. It's been incredible to see how helping our patients achieve their perfect smile can be so life-changing in both how they feel about themselves and how they interact with others. I take immense pride in the quality of care provided in our offices. We all work together as a team for the same goal; to make our patients' experiences enjoyable, educational, and pain free. I love what I do and I hope it shows! I get excited checking our schedule and seeing who will be coming in each day. I look forward to hearing about where life has taken them since our last visit. What makes it even better is that I believe our patients look forward to it too!I'm originally from Tacoma, but currently live in Puyallup with my family. I am fortunate to say I have been married for over 25 years and have two wonderful sons. I am very family oriented and blessed to have them all very close by. There isn't a month that goes by without a birthday, holiday, or sporting event that brings us all together. In my spare time I enjoy visiting with friends, outdoor activities, gardening, or relaxing in the sun with a good book.

Elysia at Puyallup Campus

Elysia

Front Office - Member since 2007

Elysia was inspired to go into dentistry as a child because I wanted to help others improve their oral health just as my dentist did for me. Growing up I remember being told "choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life." That is what I found in 2007 when I became a part of the Light Dental Studios family. That is what we are: a family that is built with our patients.

I have lived in Eatonville all my life. I enjoy spending time with my family on the farm. We like to go camping, horseback riding, play in the mud and have been very involved in missions to Liberia, Africa.
