With over 10+ years of experience managing numerous retail businesses in south Seattle, Sara decided to venture into the administrative side of dentistry when she relocated her family to the Bellingham area. She began her dental career 3 years ago as a ‘Patient Care Coordinator’ in Skagit Co. She then continued to gain experience in the dental field as a ‘Dental Administrator’ fueling her passion for providing unmatched customer service and to ensure the best possible experience for every patient that walks in through the door.
Sara transitioned into her role at Evergreen Dentistry as our Office Manager in the fall of 2021. She loves to assist patients in utilizing their dental insurance efficiently and obtaining the treatment they need in our office. The most rewarding part of her job and top priority is to make sure our patients are well taken care of after each visit.
Outside of work you can find Sara attending sporting events, going on road trips with her family and traveling. Sara resides locally with her son, Hudson and their two puppies Charlie & Atticus!
