Meet The Dream Team


Mel, Clinician


My grandfather is a dentist so ever since I was young it always seemed like a good choice for me as well. I have always loved working with kids and babysitting so I decided the best of both worlds is pediatric dentistry. Working with kids is so rewarding! When a child is fearful, I love being able to spend time showing them everything with hopes of them loving coming to dentist in the future! I’ve practically grown up in a dental office so you can tell I love what I do!


Fun fact about me: I wrestled for four years!


Favorite Quote:   "Start every day with a grateful heart!”


Why I love MKD:   I love the amazing team and environment at MKD! We all have one goal here which is to make every child’s experience at the dentist amazing! We work hard to make the dentist’s office a place kids are excited to go to!


My favorite flower:   Sunflowers, tulips or roses!

Kaylee, Clinician


I have always had a love for children and dentistry. I was a preschool teacher while I attended Smokey Point Dental Institute in 2012. I took a break from dentistry to become a mom of two. Many years later I decided to become a pediatric dental assistant. Getting to share the love for children and dentistry all in one has been a giant blessing for me. Outside of work I love spending time with my family, going camping, fishing and on mini adventures. My family’s favorite place to travel is Disneyland.


Fun fact about me:   I was a cheerleader in high school, and captain my senior year.

I started in dentistry in 2013 and happily switched to pediatric dentistry in 2015.  I love so many things about working in dentistry and I am excited about continuing to learn and grow.  Personally, my crowning glory in life is being a mom.  I was blessed with three children that are all so incredibly different from each other; every day is an adventure that I cherish.  I also love to travel and enjoy excellent food, skiing and hiking

We love cooking together, snuggling, going on adventures outdoors, spending time with family and laughing as often as possible.

Maddisen, Clinician


I finished dental school in 2014. After working at a general office for a couple years, I took a break to be home more with my two crazy boys Ezra and Nixon. Being around kids is what I love most so I figured when it was time to get back to working, a pediatric office would be the best fit for me. I’ve never loved a job so much! Outside of work, I love spending time with my family, going on road trips (our favorite small getaway is Oregon) and of course going to Target!


Fun fact about me:   I did gymnastics for 12 years!

Melissa, Clinician


I started my career in dentistry in 2014 and the journey has been so humbling. For many years I worked with the sick and elderly. I would never imagine that I would be working with children, but I have to say that I absolutely LOVE IT! I have a wonderful husband and together we have a pet cat who goes by “Bill”. I enjoy long hikes with my husband, traveling to Mt. Rainier, spending time with our families, fishing, camping, swimming, target shooting and long truck rides with the country music blasting.


Fun fact about me:   I can fit 56 grapes in my mouth.
