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 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!
I graduated from the University of Washington, Seattle! In my free time I enjoy painting, hiking, watersports, travelling, and spending time with family and friends. During the Fall season I also coach my former high school’s girls soccer team.
Sherrie, Office Manager
As a second-generation patient of Dr. Van Der Sluys, I am very happy and proud to serve as the office manager here. I like coming to work because ‘Dr. V’ and the team are professional, friendly, and fun. The best part of my job is getting to know our patients and helping them in any way I can.
I graduated from the University of Missouri; my previous work experience includes being a paralegal and a database systems administrator.
Mayra, Auxiliary Personnel
In my position I get to be involved in the front and the back of the office; this allows me to interact with and help care for patients in so many ways – which I love! The team and Dr. Van Der Sluys have created an office with a collaborative, and dedicated, patient-centric environment that stands out greatly to me!
I was born in Mexico and raised in Washington; I am fluent in Spanish and still have family in Mexico!
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, in and out of the state. This family also includes my two precious children, AKA, my dogs. I enjoy paddle boarding in the warmer months of the year and snowboarding in the Winter season!
