Our experienced team of assistants strive to meet each patient's unique needs, creating a fun and lively atmosphere.
Theresa | Head Pediatric Dental Assistant
Theresa has worked as an assistant for 22 years at Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry, and if there is one thing that has kept her there, “it is working with the kids!” Every day she is greeted by little smiling faces and warm hugs. It certainly doesn’t get any better than that for Theresa. Helping nervous little ones and their families to feel comfortable throughout their dental visit is truly her passion. She has been married to the love of her life for 22 years, and together then have four amazing children of their own. She looks forward to getting to know your family and teaching your children about the importance of good dental hygiene.
Veronica | Pediatric Dental Assistant
Veronica was born and raised in Bellingham and graduated from Bellingham Technical College in June 2016. She has been working at Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry since September 2016. She has always enjoyed being around children, as she thinks kids always have the most interesting things to say (in both Spanish and English!). Her goal as a pediatric dental assistant is to make her patients feel happy and comfortable. When she's not busy at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, arts and crafts, cuddling with her dog, and going out with her friends.
Kendra | Pediatric Dental Assistant
Kendra is originally from Eastern Washington and has been a dental assistant since 2007. She worked at Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry years ago, but “retired” for a short time to stay at home with her kids. She loves being a wife and mom! Currently Kendra is finishing her degree online, to become an elementary teacher. So if she’s not working on polishing little one’s teeth at BPD, she is working on teaching them how to floss and brush (and lots of homework in between!). She loves watersports, and going boating with friends and family. Aside from being outside, going out to dinner, coffee, vacations and being with her family, Kendra also loves animals. She has a dog, a cat, and eight chickens. She is reminded daily that “God is determined to make of us more than we thought we could be." —Jeffrey R. Holland
Lindsey | Pediatric Dental Assistant
Lindsey was born and raised in Lynden, and she graduated from her dental assisting program in 2004. She now has 2 kiddos and has been married for 10 years. She has a passion for gardening, tending to her “funny farm,” and camping. Her goal at BPD is to make her patients feel at home and to care for them like they are her own.
Jennifer | Office Manager
Jennifer is a life-time resident to Whatcom County. In her twenty-three years at Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry, she has worn many hats: dental assistant, receptionist, and office manager. She has two amazing children, one in college and another a senior in high school. When she is not greeting you at our front office or figuring out the intricacies of insurance in the back office, she enjoys camping, spending time with her family, and gardening.
Holly | Office Assistant
Born and raised in BC, Holly made Washington her home after meeting her husband here in 2015. While Holly worked as an elementary school teacher in Canada, she decided to take a break from teaching in order to devote more time to family life. As receptionist, Holly continues her passion of working with kids and families to feel welcome at Bellingham Pediatric Dentistry. In her spare time, Holly enjoys gardening, hiking, and photography when she is not chasing around her 14 month old daughter.
