We moved back to Stanwood in 2014 to be closer to my family and have loved being back in my hometown. 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 Patient Care Coordinator, I do a little bit of everything at the front. I have been in the dental field since 2016. I graduated from Skagit in 2016 and then became a certified professional coder. I love working with patients and helping them with benefits and their treatment needs. I enjoy working in the dental community and growing my dental knowledge each day. I have been married since May 2005 to my husband, Matt. I have two boys that are very involved in sports. On the weekends you will find me on the football or lacrosse field.
I started my career in dentistry in 2007 as a dental assistant, I have since transitioned to the administrative team. I love helping to guide our patients with their treatment needs, I have a unique perspective explaining treatment plans and procedures to due my chairside knowledge. I was raised in Stanwood and enjoy getting to serve the community that I've grown up in. I've been married to my Husband John since 2009, we have two children Madi and Caleb. When we are not at their sporting events we enjoy camping and exploring.
My passion for dentistry started in 2010 when I became a dental assistant. Being a dental assistant gives me the opportunity to help people to keep their mouths healthy. I enjoy getting to know people and helping them feel at ease and comfortable in the dentist office.
Besides my love for making jewelry, I love spending time outdoors from backpacking to snowshoeing in my free time. I feel very fortunate living near the North Cascades and being able to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I am excited to be a part of the Stanwood Dental Care team!
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.
I am one of the dental assistants here at SDC! My dental journey began in 2010 and I have been helping patients build confidence in their smiles ever since. I was born and raised in the Skagit Valley. I love animals, music, and enjoying all the PNW has to offer. I really enjoy working with people and making sure my patients are as comfortable and as taken care of during their visit as possible.
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. Stanwood Dental Care is the only dental office 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 joined the team in November 2020 as one of the hygienists. I was a dental assistant for 11 years before going to hygiene school at Pima Medical and graduated in 2016. Education is important to me, for myself as well as for my patients.
My husband and I moved to Camano Island in 2020. We love spending time at the beach, golfing and with our dogs.
I started my career in dentistry in 2013 as a dental assistant, but I knew I didn’t want my journey to stop there. I love working in dentistry, so I challenged myself to further my education and eventually graduated from Lake Washington Technical College in 2021 with a degree in dental hygiene. I have been working at Stanwood Dental Care since then and I have loved every day being here! It is very rewarding to work with patients and have a good connection with each of them. Providing oral health care treatment and education on an individual basis is important to me. I grew up in Stanwood where I met my husband, Kyle. We have been together since high school, married since 2014. We have two amazing kids, Kellen and Kinslee. When I’m not working, I love being with my family outdoors playing sports, camping, or going on vacation!
I have been a part of this team since November 2021. I graduated from Shoreline Community College in 2017. I love working as a Dental Hygienist because it gives me a unique opportunity to get to know my patients one-on-one, while being able to help them reach optimal health. I decided to become a hygienist because of my own struggles with my teeth as a young girl, and felt it was a way to learn as much as possible, while helping other people who are often frustrated with the discomforts of coming in for Dental treatment. I had the opportunity to travel to Bolivia in 2017 to deliver dental treatments to children in a remote village. I love to travel for almost any reason! I have been married to my amazing husband since 2020, and I have 2 incredible stepchildren, 3 fur babies, and a ton of plants! On the weekends we find adventures, play games, or work on projects
