Judy-Office Manager

I have been working in the dental field for over 19 years as a certified registered dental assistant, scheduling/financial coordinator and office manager. Dentistry has given me great satisfaction because I enjoy helping people feel confident and this includes having a beautiful smile.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband taking part in watching the local sports teams. It’s not uncommon to see me at Friday night football games.
If you’re looking for someone to help you get those first steps started towards building a long-lasting dental family to take care of all your needs just ask for me! Can’t wait to get you started …GO TEAM!

Lora-Dental Assistant

I have been a registered dental assistant for the past 27 years working in Washington and Alaska. Dentistry has allowed me to be a mom to a wonderful daughter who is a master bowler.

Some of my favorite things in life include going to UFC fights, boxing events, spending time with family/friends and most of all time at home relaxing.

In my spare time I enjoy watching my daughter at her bowling tournaments, riding Harleys and if you were to ask me what I am the best at, well, my co-workers  would say baking and cooking is my specialty.

Kristee-Front Office/Dental Assistant

My career in dentistry started over 15 years ago as a registered dental assistant and I am now cross trained as a scheduling and financial coordinator.  In addition, I  have recently gotten the opportunity to take on some  marketing roles and find I truly enjoy this area as well.

One of my favorite things in dentistry is working with children. I am passionate about creating good oral health which starts with the first tooth, the first experience in the dental office and the first oral health habits.

 I enjoy camping, crafts, gardening and spending time with my husband and two little ones at home. When things are quiet you will find me curled up with a good book.

Living life everyday to the fullest, learning new things, and helping others are always my personal  goals. Enjoying it at the same time is the reward.

We’d love to get the chance to see your smile

Nervous of that first dental visit?  Come in to Orting Dental and meet our team. We’d love to get the opportunity to help you out from that very first appointment of meeting Dr. Youngquist, to scheduling your regular routine cleanings.

Whether you’ve been a resident in Orting since, taking a walk to Safeway was considered, “taking a trip into town”, or you’ve recently become a new member of this beautiful city – We’d love to see your smile.
