Providing dental care that makes people happy and confident in their smile is my favorite aspect of dentistry. It is very rewarding to see the amazing changes that quality dentistry can make in a person’s life. It is my goal to offer all of my patients excellent dental care and to make sure that they feel comfortable and confident with the care they receive. I am committed to furthering my education to make sure that I am always up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry.
I am very happy to work with an amazing group of people who sincerely care about our patients and are committed to doing all they can to provide the best possible dental experience. Each member of my team is friendly and compassionate toward our patients’ needs as well as highly trained in each aspect of patient care.
Outside of the office I spend most of my time with my wife Sarah and our four wonderful daughters. They keep us very busy with many activities like piano and dance lessons and weekly youth group activities. I am very active with my local church group. When I have free time I love to ski, cycle, or hike.
I am our office's Financial Coordinator. I love working in the dental field, and have been since 2003. I am the go-to girl for insurance and any question regarding insurance. I started working for Dr. Magelsen in June 2016. I love working for Dr. Magelsen because he truly cares about his patients and staff. I have been married since 2004 to my husband, Joel. I am also a mom, to my daughter Peyton. We moved back to Stanwood in 2014 to be closer to my family. I love spending time with my family! We love being outdoors, especially when it's warm. We love traveling and going on road trips.
As the Scheduling Coordinator, I am one of the first smiles you will see when you step through our door. I have been in the dentistry field since 2007. With my background in chair side assisting, I have an additional strength in understanding treatments, scheduling appointments and addressing any questions or concerns that may arise. I have had the privilege of working at Stanwood Dental Care since 2013. I feel blessed to spend my days with the best “work family” out there! I spend my time outside of the office with my husband John and our children Madi and Caleb.
I joined Dr. Magelsen’s awesome team in 2013, and began my dental career in 1996 while attending Shoreline Community College. It is my goal to make sure our patients always receive quality care as well as have a comfortable, enjoyable dental experience. I’m passionate about dentistry, I love knowing that I am helping people achieve healthy, beautiful smiles day in and day out. In my time away from the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, and watching movies.
Registered Dental Assistant
I have been a registered dental assistant for over a decade now, and joined Dr. Magelsen's team at Stanwood Dental Care in 2013. My favorite aspect of dentistry is the people that I meet and the relationships that are formed.
I am a true blue Seattlelite and I enjoy watching Seahawks, Mariners, and Husky games as well as a variety of music concerts. When I have free time, I like to volunteer for the Seattle Union Gospel Mission, Medical Teams International, and the Special Olympics. I currently live in Mukilteo with my wonderful husband of 6 years.
My main duty is to provide therapies to keep our patients' oral health in optimal condition while meeting their comfort and aesthetic needs. I enjoy the relationships I am able to build with our patients, as well as educating them on how they can improve their overall health. I live in the Stanwood community with my husband, Josh, and our three sons, Leif, Brock, and Beau, who keep us busy! I've been working with Dr. Shawn Magelsen at Stanwood Dental Care since 2006 and he is an amazing dentist who truly cares about the health and well being of each of his patients. He is a perfectionist in providing excellent dental care with a friendly and compassionate demeanor. The ease in which he connects with those around him seems effortless. Dr Shawn is the only dentist I would recommend to my family and friends!
I am responsible for helping my patients achieve the very best dental health possible through education and preventive dental treatments. I started working in this office in 2008 and have enjoyed getting to know our family of patients. I love working with Dr. Magelsen because he makes each day fun and full of learning opportunities. I married an amazing man in 2006; we have been blessed with two wonderful children.
I make sure each one of my patients leaves our office after a checkup with clean, healthy teeth and the knowledge to keep it that way! It is a lot of fun to see patients achieve their best possible smile and reach their oral health goals. Dr. Magelsen creates a fun and relaxed environment that makes me excited to come to work everyday. I am married, with a son who is almost 2 years old. In our free time we love to be outdoors, hiking, snow boarding, and playing sports.
I graduated from Eastern Washington University and have been a clinical dental hygienist for over 20 years. I am passionate not only about oral health but also about overall health and the strong connection between the two. I love building strong trusting relationships with my patients which are indispensable in their strive for excellent health. Through patient education, I am able to give each patient the power to prevent oral disease through optimal home care.
I very much enjoy the outdoors by walking, hiking, snow skiing and jet skiing. I have two teenage boys with my husband of 20 years.
