Financial Coordinator

Stephanie at Smiles for Maple Valley I have an Associates Degree in Business Management and have worked in various fields within the medical field for over 16 years, specializing in insurance and billing. I recently started working in the dental field and was soon given the wonderful opportunity to be become apart of the Smiles for Maple Valley team! I'm grateful to have learned so much in such a short amount of time and continue to learn and grow every day. I enjoy creating new relationships with all of our patients and can be a great resource for financial questions.

Amanda, RDH, BS

Registered Dental Hygienist

Amanda at Smiles for Maple Valley I began my dental career in 2003 working as a dental assistant and instantly knew I wanted to continue on with my education. I graduated from Shoreline Community College with my Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2008, and received my Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Washington University in 2010, graduating with honors.

Use your smile to change the world, don’t let the world change your smile.

The desire to encourage, care for, and make others feel comfortable has always been a passion of mine, and I feel that my career as a dental hygienist allows me that opportunity. My goal is to connect with people from all walks of life and together come up with a plan to return their mouth to optimal health without judgement or shame.

My husband, Matt and I have two adorable children, Cannon and Lucy, and a Maltese dog named Goose. When I'm not working, I enjoy time at home with my family, reading, watching movies, cooking, Village Theatre productions, and cuddles with my kiddos. I enjoy volunteering with local organizations and have served on a missions trip to Nicaragua.

I graduated in 2012 with a certificate in dental assisting from Everest College, and have enjoyed working both in the front and back.

What People Are Saying See how our patients love us!

This dentist office was awesome! I made an appointment for my husband because he was having a lot of pain and they were able schedule him the very next day. My husband usually hates getting dental work, but had a great experience!

WOW!! How refreshing to see a dentist and have a thorough evaluation to judge the necessity of my treatment before any procedure is recommended instead of what my insurance and wallet will cover!! He actually talked to me about different options and answered my questions without making me feel dental dumb. If you are seeing any other dentist I feel bad for you. This dentist is a rare gem!!!

H W. on Yelp

After chipping my tooth today while at work, I called and was offered a spot immediately. It was nearly my lunch time so I headed right to the office. My tooth was fixed and I was right back to work. Everyone was really friendly, which is typical for this office. I couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks so much!
