Carrie

Dental Hygienist

I like helping my patients achieve the best possible dental health they can. Seeing a person take control of their smile’s health is so rewarding! With lots of patient education, support, and encouragement, Dr. Larsen and our team really do improve lives.

I clean teeth, perform scaling and root planing, assess periodontal health, and administer anesthetic. While working with my patients, I talk with them about the connection between oral and overall health and how they can achieve healthy smiles and bodies. When a person comes for a recall visit and I can see he or she has made positive changes, I can’t help but smile.

 

Loette

Business Assistant

I enjoy building relationships with patients and seeing people become excited about caring for their oral health. I’ve known some of our patients for more than 30 years and they feel like family to me! It’s a great feeling to work with such a talented doctor and team, each of whom cares for our patients with respect and compassion.

I keep Dr. Larsen’s books full and answer the phones. I also handle insurance pre-determinations, process claims, and serve as the financial coordinator, so I oversee billing. Working with patients, I review treatment plans, too. Since I’m a registered and certified dental assistant, I’m able to answer questions about procedures and options.

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my husband of almost 50 years, three grown children, and eight  grandchildren. I also like music, cooking, sewing, church activities, and pampering my two cats.

 

Stacia

Registered Dental Hygienist

I earned my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from Eastern Washington University and worked at family dental offices in Spokane for two years. As a new member of Dr. Larsen’s staff, I am looking forward to working on a team to help improve patients’ oral health. The best part of my job is getting to know our family of patients and helping them to feel as comfortable as possible.

My husband Morgan and I were married in August 2017. We have a Chihuahua named Opie. A native of western Washington, I love all things outdoors, such as hiking, biking, and camping. I have a passion for music and love being involved with local community theaters.

 

 Amber

Registered Dental Assistant 

I began dental assisting in April of 2015 and fell in love with it! I have attended various training courses on a wide variety of topics. Aside from my interest and passion in the procedures we practice, my favorite part about my job is the patient interaction. My goal is to be a light to those around me and to create an experience for patients that is friendly and comfortable. I love working at Dr. Larsen’s office because we all truly work as a team and in doing so, I feel we provide excellent care for our patients.

In my free time I enjoy reading books, spending time with family and friends, and volunteering in my church.I also have a cat named Olive who loves to play fetch!
