Tetrick Family Dentistry Bellingham Team
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I’m a floss threading, pocket probing, root planning, enamel scaling, periodontal preventing, oral cancer screening dental hygienist! I love getting to know my patients on a personal level and seeing improvements in their oral health. Both Dr. Gary Tetrick and Dr. Jill Tetrick are passionate about dentistry and keep up on the latest technologies. Our team works hard, and we even enjoy spending time together outside of the office. At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Ray, and our three dogs. I like to read, jog, watch movies, and shop! Being with my family and friends is my favorite.
I am one of the newest members of the Tetrick Dental team. I love working in this high energy, team-oriented office. Everyone I work with is caring, supportive and great with our patients. Our dentists are up to date on the latest techniques and provide excellent dental care. It has been fun and enjoyable getting to know our patients. Each day, my job as a dental assistant provides a new experience. I can honestly say I love my job!
Outside of work, I have a ballerina and soccer player. My little ones keep me busy. I love camping, swimming, and horseback riding.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I began my dental hygiene career over 35 years ago and was happy to join Dr. Tetrick’s team in 2001. Over the years, I’ve worked with many dentists, and I can honestly say that Drs. Gary and Jill Tetrick are some of the best! I enjoy working with patients on a one-on-one level in order to help them achieve ideal dental health. My husband and I own Norstar Boats, and I am the bookkeeper. I enjoy trail running, rowing, bike riding, and walking with my yellow lab named Oscar.
I have been a proud member of this team for over 20 years. While I enjoy working with patients of all ages, I have a special affinity for working with our young patients. It’s so much fun to connect with children and watch them grow over the years. Everyone on our team loves what we do and shares a common interest in giving our patients a beautiful, healthy smile. I have lived in Bellingham my entire life and take great pride in the community. My husband of 27 years is also from Bellingham. We have three beautiful children and a brand new grandson. In my spare time I volunteer for the American Cancer Society and our local cancer center.
I assist our doctors with many aspects of our patients’ care. In the few years that I have been here, I’ve really learned a lot, mostly from our team, but from our patients as well. It’s so much fun to get to know people and hear about new things in their life like awesome vacation spots and family adventures. Everyone in our office is so positive and fun, and we genuinely enjoy each other’s company. It is great to work with doctors and a team that perform great dental work in a happy work environment. Life isn’t just all work and no play. In my free time I like to work out, run with my sweet yellow lab, Gemma, and experience life with my fiancé, Zach.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Ever since I was in grade school, I knew dental hygiene was the career I wanted to have! Today, my passion for oral health continues to grow as I have worked with the patients and team members at Dr. Tetrick’s office. I love building trustworthy relationships with my patients and providing individualized care. I am proud to be an Eastern Washington University graduate, where I was inspired to begin my clinical teaching career in dental hygiene as well, at BTC.
Being raised in the Northwest, I enjoy everything the area has to offer from hiking and boating, to skiing. I recently took up a new musical hobby of learning to play acoustic guitar!
As a fairly new member of our team, I’ve really enjoyed getting to know our family of patients and building relationships with them. A big part of being a dental assistant is knowing how to make patients feel as comfortable as possible, and that starts with trust! Our team is confident in their abilities to give our patients the best care possible. I am a proud new mother of a baby boy, and have two wonderful stepchildren. My husband and I enjoy camping with family and friends. Fitness is also a huge part of my life.
It is very gratifying to know that the restorations I create in our lab help to return our patients to an ideal state of health. The most rewarding part of my job however, is getting to know our patients. I feel lucky to have a job that gives me the opportunity to work with such a diverse group of people. All of my co-workers share a common goal of working hard every day to help improve our patients’ lives.
I have been working in dentistry for 21 years. My first twenty years were spent as a chair-side assistant seeing materials and techniques evolve. Today’s dentistry is amazing and sometimes life changing.
I am a life long resident of Whatcom County and am excited to have the opportunity to educate friends and families in this caring and spirited office.
My husband and I have two girls and a Golden Retriever. We enjoy spending time outside and improving our yard. I like to cook and enjoy trying new food and wines.
Although I’ve only recently joined Tetrick Family Dentistry, I already feel at home with this wonderful group of people. Everyone here genuinely loves their job and shares a passion for providing excellent care to our family of patients. Working in the front of the office, I love being one of the first people you see when you walk in the door. It is my goal to make each of our patients feel at home here as well.
Recently having moved to the beautiful town of Bellingham with my boyfriend, Stan, and our Boston Terrier, Hercules, we enjoy all of the outdoor activities this beautiful part of the country has to offer. On our days off, you will likely find us snowboarding at Mt. Baker or hiking one of the many beautiful trails here.
