I look forward to meeting new patients as well as catching up with current
ones. My goal for Yelm Prairie Dental is to be of service to this great community
through compassionate dentistry. I don't think you should dread getting your dental care and I strive to make your experience with us positive.
I grew up in the small Washington community of Adna. I graduated from WSU- Vancouver and went on to complete my dental degree at Oregon Health Science University in Portland, Oregon.

My wife Kris and I are enjoying the area and all it has to offer. Beyond my passion for dentistry, my wife and I love experiencing the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and enjoy kayaking, hiking, and biking.
I look forward to meeting you and your family and serving all of your dental needs.
Debbie originally is a native of Oregon born and raised. She relocated into Washington over 6 years ago following her husband with their 4 boys in tow. She became interested in dentistry over 2 decades ago as a CNA working closely with a retired dentist. She spent most of the first decade as a dental assistant and in the front office greeting patients daily. As her passion for dentistry and immediate care for her patients grew, she went back to school and earned 2 associates degrees before graduating in 2009 with her Bachelor's in Dental Health from Pacific University of Oregon.
Since graduation, she has worked educating Dental Assistants as an instructor for a sealant program as well as providing clinical hygiene services in both private and corporate dentistry. She has a vast amount of knowledge in all avenues of dentistry!
In her spare time, she enjoys spending family time with her husband of 25+ years. In which they have 4 boys and 4 fur puppies. She enjoys riding 4 wheelers, hiking, camping, travelling, spending time on the Oregon Coast, paddle boarding and home canning.
Debbie will brighten your smile!

I have been in the dental field for a very long time (not giving my age away! hahaha) and came to Yelm Prairie Dental in October 2018! I come with advanced knowledge of Dental Insurance to help with all your insurance questions!
My husband, William, and I enjoy our two large breed dogs Sherman and Lincoln. Sherman is an 11-year-old Irish Wolfhound/Lab cross and Lincoln, pictured at right, is an Irish Wolfhound born January 2017! You can see us most Saturday mornings at the local Shiplap Coffee Shop or walking around town after work!

We love traveling to the ocean several times per year with the dogs, along with gardening, and DIY home improvements!
Come in and say hi anytime!
I am new to dentistry having come from a business type office. I graduated from Oregon State University with a major in Political Science.
In my free time, I like to box, go hiking, and have started travelling. Cooking and baking are forever a passion! I live in Yelm and enjoy my horse (Logan) and dog (Jaya).
My favourite thing about dentistry so far is interacting with all the wonderful patients here at Yelm Prairie Dental!
