TessRegistered Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Tess, and I’ve been a Dental Assistant here at A Northwest Dental since 2011.
My priority is to make sure we meet our patient’s dental needs and assure their experience is as comfortable and personable as can be when visiting our office. I love to engage in conversations with our patients to get to know them better and establish a trustworthy relationship.
You’ll see Jennifer at the front desk or perhaps answering the phone. After 30 as a clinical dental assistant, I have moved to an administrative role with Dr. Lee in 2020. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my career.
I live in Edmonds with my husband Dan we married in 2009. I have twin boys that are grown. And now I now have a 4-legged child a Vizsla named Axel. I enjoy sporting events and I’m an avid Seahawks fan. We go to a lot of concerts or/and outdoor music festivals.
I’m a Seattleite through and through. I’ve been passionate about all things dental since I was 5 years old. Graduated from PimaMedical Institute for Dental Assisting in 2010 and found my spot as a financial coordinator. I specialize in insurance, benefits, and how best to maximize your benefits and minimize your out-of-pocket costs.
When I’m not battling insurance, I love to hang out with my two amazing children, spend time with my large family, listen to music, and cook.
