Meet Our Team
Each staff member combines their training, skills, and unique perspective on the care they deliver for an exceptional patient experience. All employees have been clinically trained as dental assistants and at any time are capable of performing any critical function to make the office run smoothly.
Amy, Office Manager
Originally from Longview, WA, Amy has 25 years in the dental field. She was employed previously by Dr. Sherrard for 5 years and has been at Life Long Dental since September 2013.
