Meet our Team
Ashley - Office Manager
Hi. My name is Ashley. I started working with Dr. Smith in April of 2011. I was born and raised in Lake Stevens, graduating from Lake Stevens High School in 2001. My husband and I love traveling and camping. Our favorite places we visit often are Oahu, Hawaii and Diablo Lake. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family. Other passions include reading, cooking, decorating, organizing, and creating all kinds of crafting projects. We have wild and crazy two cats named Arlo and Guinness who keep us entertained. I love being here at Arlington Pediatric Dentistry
because it's a great environment and the kids are so fun to work with.
Heidi - Financial Coordinator
Hi! My name is Heidi. I have worked in the dental field for over twenty years and I've been with Arlington Pediatric Dentistry since 2014. I absolutely love being a part of the team. I grew up in Snohomish County and I am married and have a teenage daughter who is growing up way too quickly. I enjoy spending time with my family traveling and being outdoors. My favorite hobbies are hiking, mushroom picking, and snorkeling. I hunt for morel and chantrel mushrooms, but my hunting spot is a secret!
Melody - Treatment Coordinator
Hi! My name is Melody. I started working with Dr. Smith and the team at Arlington Pediatric September 2021. I am originally from Indiana. You would be surprised to know that I am a triplet! I have been married to my wonderful husband for over 20 years. We have two teenage children who keep me busy. When I am not at the office, I enjoy spending time at the beach because I love the ocean, Starbucks (especially collecting their fun cups and mugs), and couponing. I look forward to meeting you and your family on your next dental visit
Melissa - Dental Assistant
Hello. My name is Melissa. I am a Washington native and grew up in Snohomish County. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years and have enjoyed working with Dr. Smith and my wonderful coworkers since January 2011. It is truly rewarding to be able to care for our patients of all ages from toddlers to teens. I am very happy to be able to help our Spanish speaking patients and their families. When I am not at work I enjoy spending with my husband and our daughters, ages 18 and 15. We love spending time with family and friends, sharing a good meal. Our favorites are Mexican and Thai.
Paty - Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Paty. I was born in Mexico and moved to Washington 19 years ago. I have been working in the dental field since 2010. I love working with kids because they are so much fun. I started working for Dr. Smith in August of 2017. When I am not at work, I love spending time with my husband of 10 years and our two wonderful boys. Together, we love doing outside activities like hiking and going to different parks. Our favorite thing to do is to take family road trips over to Eastern Washington.
Betty - Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Betty! I'm a wife and mom of three teenagers. My husband was in the Air Force
for 22 years before he retired and got a job with Boeing
, which is how we ended up back in the PNW. We are originally from Spokane WA, so being back near family has been great! I decided back in 2015 that I wanted to get back into the work field and do something outside of the home. My kids were now old enough to step in and help with making dinner so I could go back to school. I have always wanted to go into the dental field but life happens and so my dreams were pushed into the back ground, but now with all the kids old enough to step up and help out I jumped on the opportunity to go back to school to become a dental assistant. It was a fast past course that I was able to finish in half a year at the top of my class and passed my radiology test to become a dental assistant in the state of Delaware. I'm excited to join the APD team and look forward to meeting all the wonderful families that come into the office.
Kendall - Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Kendall. I have lived in Arlington my whole life and graduated from Arlington High School
in 2015. I started working for Dr. Smith and the team in November 2021 and have been in the dental field since 2016. Outside of work, I love spending time with family and friends, exploring the outdoors and shopping.
