Office Manager

Welcome to our office.  My name is Janet.  I am a graduate of SSC dental assisting program and a Washington State registered dental assistant.  I have had the great pleasure of working in the dental field for many years.  My greatest joy is having a patient say “I can finally smile like I used to, Dr. Waite has given me back my smile”.

As office coordinator and manager, working with patients at the front desk and in clinical areas gives me great joy.  I love the dental field and I’m very enthusiastic about the future of dentistry and with all the new ways to help everyone to keep, maintain and restore their SMILES.

Dental Assistant

After graduating from dental assisting school in 2008, Rebecca joined the Dr. Waite team. She enjoys helping others by improving their smiles and believes that a great smile promotes a healthy self-esteem. When Rebecca is not working, she enjoys time with friends and family.

Beverly (Bev)
Administrative Assistant

Each and every patient has brought so much to my daily life, and that is what makes my job as Dr. Waite’s administrative assistant so much fun.  I love the patients and love calling them.  My call can be of comfort to make their day more secure, and it has also done that for Dr. Waite.
