Over the last 28 years Andrea feels extremely fortunate to have created many trusting relationships with her patients and coworkers. She feels her role as a hygienist is to educate, inspire, and improve one's oral health with compassion.
Andrea graduated from Shoreline Community College with her Dental Hygiene degree in 1987. She had three years of previous education from Washington State University and Central Washington University. Each year she takes additional continuing education on nutrition and dental health issues. She is Biolase certified and uses the laser to help patients acheive the best oral health.
A healthy smile is a powerful thing!
In Andrea's spare time she loves to read, hike, walk and vaction in Chelan or any vacation destination with her family.
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.
Outside the office, I can be found spending time with my husband, kids, friends and dogs. Some of my favorite activities are camping with friends and family, bible study studies, decorating, playing cornhole, shopping and traveling!

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.
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.
Use your smile to change the world, don’t let the world change your smile.
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 joined the Smiles for Maple Valley team in May of 2017 and feel very lucky to work with such an AWESOME group of people. I graduated in 2012 with a certificate in dental assisting from Everest College, and have enjoyed working both in the front and back. I believe everyone deserves a beautiful smile, and I love helping our patients achieve theirs.
In my time away from work, I enjoy being with my family, friends, taking my little dog Sophie on walks, baking, concerts, car shows, and cheering on our beloved Seattle Seahawks. I am also very blessed to have a twin sister! Life is a little more fun, when you are a twin.
Come see us! We're on SE 240th St and and 225th Ave SE and right across the Columbia Bank and KeyBank.
