We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Jody, Dental Hygienist

I started as Dr. Van Der Sluys’ dental assistant in 2005 then later pursued my degree to become a hygienist. Everyone in this office is dedicated to a high standard of excellence, and though we love to have fun with our jobs, we take dental care very seriously. 

I am a proud mother of two daughters; we spend our weekends doing one sport or another. Both of my daughters, and my husband, race cars—they all love it! The girls also play soccer, softball, and love to swim in the pool.  As a mom it’s always great to jump into the fun with them, too!

Shari, Dental Hygienist  

I have been in dentistry for over 20-years! My job has shaped me in so many ways; I love meeting and caring for patients, learning about their life, background, and sharing stories!  

I also have a great passion for yoga, as it serves as an amazing centering and grounding point in life. I spent some time in Costa Rica, learning more about the culture and immersing myself with others who shared the same passion for yoga.

I am a proud mother of 3! I also love paddle boarding, hiking, and travelling whenever I can!

Ashley, Dental Assistant

I graduated from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2021, and started working for Dr. Van Der Sluys shortly after.

I greatly enjoy the field of dentistry and working alongside the team makes every day even more enjoyable. I strive to put our patients’ comfortability first, with the goal of building a relationship with our patients and having them leave our office happy, and with a healthy smile! 

In my free time I love hiking, watersports, travelling, and spending time with family and friends. I also have a passion for creating oil, acrylic, and graphite works of art!

Crystal, Front Office Manager 

I have been in the dental field for over 20 years. I love developing relationships with patients; my goal is to always try and help patients find solutions to any and all insurance and billing problems.

I enjoy spending time with my husband, who I’ve been with for more than two decades! We love taking trips, golfing, and being outdoors. I have one son, who made me a grandma at the start of 2024!

Kaylie, Auxiliary Personnel 

My position entails working in the operatories and at the front desk; I love that my job allows me to work with patients, and the team, in both capacities! Connecting with people has always been something that I have been passionate about, and entering the dental field has only made that passion grow. It also helps that our patients make it easy for me to love what I do.

I grew up in Europe where I picked up a few languages here and there and learned a lot about different cultures. In my free time I enjoy cooking, spending lots of time with dogs, and writing music about my life.
