Ali - Office Manager, EFDA
I joined Pinewood Family Dental after graduating my Dental Assisting program from Bellingham Technical College in 2017. Since, I have gone on to continue my education into an Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary and Office Management. You can find me around the office filling cavities or up front smiling behind the computer. In my down time I enjoy spending time with my husband Cannen, our puppy Murphy and soon our new born baby girl!! I love working for Pinewood Family Dental because it feels like I leave my home to go to my work home, which makes work not even feel like a job.
Fun Fact: You may see someone else around the office that looks an awful lot like me 😉
