Christina — Treatment Coordinator
I am the treatment planner here. My goal is always you, the patient. I will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your treatment.
I have been in the field for 28 years. I enjoy working for Dr. Michelle for many reasons, and I strive to maintain professionalism in all that I do.
In my spare time, I enjoy quality time with my family and my golden retriever, Gilbert. I also enjoy spinning classes several times a week.
Stephanie — Dental Hygienist
What initially drew me to dentistry was my love of the medical field and helping people. I grew up in Ventura and moved to Eugene, Oregon, where I graduated Dental Hygiene School at Lane Community College in 1994.
In my free time, I enjoy mountain biking, traveling, hiking with my dog, and spending time with family and friends.
I enjoy dental hygiene and try to make every patient’s experience as comfortable and happy as possible. Trying to save the world, one tooth at a time.
Tammy — Dental Hygienist
I’m one of the dental hygienists on Dr. Michelle’s team. I provide comprehensive dental hygiene services and empower my patients to set and achieve their personal oral health goals.
I grew up in Alaska and graduated with my bachelor’s degree from Eastern Washington University in 1990. I moved to Maui after a few years in rainy Seattle. While living in Maui, I took a brief break from dentistry and worked on the water as a dive instructor.
I enjoy working with a team that makes quality comfortable dentistry and customer service a priority. Dr. Michelle is a leader that guides our team to achieve her excellent standards of care and professionalism.
I have a 9-year-old boy, and we enjoy anything outdoors: camping, beach, sun and fun. I keep busy keeping him busy.
Eliena — Registered Dental Assistant
I am responsible for the back office and perform all chairside duties. RDA with over 30 years of experience in the dental field.
My greatest satisfaction is helping educate and provide the best professional dental service for our patients. I am now seeing the third generation of the same patient families, and every office visit helps strengthen the bond of trust between patients and the practice.
I love traveling, photography, gardening, salsa dancing and an active social life.
