JENNIFER – PATIENT COORDINATOR 

Hello. My name is Jennifer, and I am your Patient Coordinator. I am new to the dental field and am excited for my new career.  I will be one of the first smiling faces you will see as you come into the door. I will be greeting you, helping you with scheduling your appointments, reviewing your treatment, providing you with treatment estimates and verifying your insurance benefits.
 
I enjoy dentistry because I get to help our patients with their dental needs. Dr. Bui is a wonderful person to work for. He cares about his patients and staff.
 
I am single. I have three beautiful daughters and two granddaughters. In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with my friends and family.
 
I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your dental needs. Please let me know if I can answer any questions or be of assistance in any way.

MAGGIE – PATIENT COORDINATOR

Hi friends! My name is Maggie. You will be sure to see my bright red hair and big smile as soon as you walk into the office.

My main duties include welcoming our wonderful patients, scheduling
appointments, and verifying your insurance benefits. I know benefit details can be hard to wrap your head around so please ask if you have any questions or concerns!

I have been working in the dental field for about three years. I love my job! Getting to know our patients and their families is a true joy. I like being apart of a team that helps put people at ease and feel like they’re part of our family. And working with Dr. Bui is wonderful. I truly can’t say enough about him! He is passionate about his patients and the work he does. I enjoy working with him more and more each day.

When I’m not at work I’m usually spending time with my family. I have a doting husband and a happy, energetic, one year old. My husband and I have been together for six wonderful years. We love going on adventures, exploring new areas, and trying new things. Becoming a mom has been the greatest joy. I love having a job that is flexible enough that I still get to spend time with my family. Other passions I have include reading, photography, and hand lettering.

I am so looking forward meeting you and getting to know you better. Please feel free to stop by and say hi or ask any questions you might have, I would be happy to help you. I know dentistry can sometimes be a scary thing, but with our amazing team it doesn’t have to be! See you soon, Maggie

LAURA – DENTAL HYGIENIST

Hi! I’m Laura. I am your Dental Hygienist. I’m the one who will be cleaning your teeth. I’ve been in dentistry since 1988. I enjoy dentistry and all the people I get to meet.

During my work day, I especially enjoy hearing patient stories and getting to know them as individuals. I always do my best to give you an excellent cleaning and make you as comfortable as possible.

I’ve been working for Dr. Bui since 2004. He’s been a great dentist to work with. He is kind, compassionate and honest. He provides excellent care to our patients.

I’m married and we have 3 daughters. We live on a farm outside of Eatonville. We love our animals! We have cows, chickens, 4 dogs and a cat. As a family, we love camping, travelling and road trips.

Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you in any way. – Regards, Laura

BRITTANY – DENTAL ASSISTANT

Hello there! My name is Brittany or Brit, for short. I am a dental assistant. I have been in the dental field for over a year. I will be the one who will be seating you, explaining treatment, answering any questions you might have, and assisting the doctor with your dental treatment.

Dentistry is one of my passions. My mom was an assistant when I was younger. I thought I would follow my mom’s footstep and begin a career in the dental field. Being able to be a part of Dr.Bui staff is one of the best decisions I have made in my career. He is one of the best doctors I have gotten to work with. He cares a lot about how his patients are feeling during and after treatment. He even writes his own articles about different topics in dentistry. I love working here, and you will love coming here too for your dental needs!

I have been married for a year now to my best friend and wonderful husband. Nic and I met at a video game convention in Seattle over 6 years ago. We have two dogs, Charlie (Basenji/Chihuahua) and Teemo (German Shepherd/Chow Chow). One very old cat, Khaya (Maine coon). And our newest addition is a 7-month-old Dusky Conure parrot named Luigi. I love having animals around me and taking care of them. I have had many different types of animal through out my life, and I seem to keep getting more and more.

When I have free time, I love playing video games, board games or being able to hang out with family. Video games have been a big part of my life since I was very young. My brothers and dad taught me how to play since I was 3 years old. They also showed me board-games like Dungeons and Dragons, and Risk. My favorite games right now are Poke’mon, Fallout, Smite, and League of Legends. I play on Xbox, PC, DS and the Nintendo Switch.

If we haven’t met yet, I hope we will meet soon. I would love to get to know you and your family. Please let me know if you have any questions, or anything I can do to make your experience here better. Hope to see you soon – Brit.

SAMANTHA – DENTAL ASSISTANT

Hello! I’m Sam, one of Dr. Bui’s dental assistants. I will be the one to escort you into the treatment room, answer any questions you might have, and assist the doctor through the entire procedure. I tend to talk a lot, so you will be hearing many fun facts during your appointment!

I have been in the dental field for almost two years. I feel like the dental field is where I have always belonged. I enjoy helping make it a pleasant experience for all our patients. I feared the dentists growing up, as most children do. Once I went in for my first adult cleaning I was fascinated! I saw how a dental office really worked and realized there was nothing to fear. I wanted to be a part of this!

I adore my job! Dr. Bui cares so much for his patients. I feel they couldn’t be in better hands. I was taught the best way to grow is to surround yourself with people that have the heart of a teacher. Dr. Bui has the heart of a teacher, and he truly wants to educate his patients and staff. He wants to ensure his patients feel comfortable with their treatment options.

I married my best friend in January 2018. We met three years earlier at a Starbucks, and I just knew an adventure was about to begin! I have three wonderful step children; two girls and one boy. Their ages spread from 7-18 years old. They are going to be incredible people, and they add so much love and joy to my life. They all love how much I bug them about flossing!

In my free time, I love to listen to audio books. I love books on bettering your mind and personal growth. I love going antiquing with my husband, hiking, and spending time with my family. I enjoy listening to 50-60’s music, and you can bet it will be on during your visit!

I’m looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you during your visit! Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions about your procedure or about how to make your visit more comfortable! – Sam
