Meet Your Team
Jane - Office Manager
I am primarily responsible for the financial management of the practice. I also oversee day to day operations and make sure that our parents and patients have a five-star experience at our office! What I love best about my job is that it doesn’t feel like work to me; I love to be here!
I love the outdoors, canoeing, camping, dutch oven cooking and horseback riding!
Melissa - Treatment Coordinator
In 1999 I started with Spinnaker as a dental assistant, moving on to lead assistant and then transitioning to treatment coordinator. I schedule hospital dentistry cases for patients who need extra TLC and work closely with parents to help them understand their insurance benefits and am the go-to person to answer any treatment related questions.
I still occasionally assist the doctors with procedures, and I enjoy working with children and seeing them grows up to be healthy, happy young adults. I also love working with our team; we have wonderful doctors who are great with our patients and provide quality care.
I have been married since 1999, a mother of five, and a grandma to two amazing grandchildren. I enjoy camping and spending time with my family. I love watching my kids play sports, raise and show livestock with 4-H and work on the family farm.
Sarah - Lead Dental Assistant
I assist our doctors in the office, and in the operating room while they perform dental surgery. As an expanded functions dental assistant, I do cleanings, take X-rays, and assist doctors with exams. I love talking with kids and hearing all about their interests and activities. They always amaze me with their wittiness, and their ability to adjust and trust our dental team. Interacting with kids, talking to them, and helping them to be great dental patients is what I love most.
My family loves camping, boating, fishing, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors. We also love cheering on our Blazers and Seahawks, and are always up for something new and fun.

I am an expanded functions dental assistant, helping assist the doctors with procedures and patients with their hygiene. I am bilingual and speak both English and Spanish. I have a special talent for working with children, they love my sense of humor. My favorite part of working at Spinnaker Pediatric Dentistry is easing patients through their fears and helping kids become great dental patients.
Christina - Dental Assistant
I want our young patients to feel as comfortable and at ease as possible whenever they’re in our office.
