We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
Treatment and Scheduling Coordinator
There are not enough words to describe Anne, our scheduler extraordinaire! She’s THAT wonderful! Anne finds appointments for patients where none seem available, and when there is an open spot, she somehow fills it. Anne is gracious, and has a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. She is sweet, kind, and patient beyond belief! Negative words are not part of her vocabulary. Anne is the office angel; everyone loves her and she loves them right back. We couldn’t have placed a better person in the chair to greet you for your first visit as you walk in the door.
Anne and her husband have three adult children who keep the “revolving door” to their home moving between college and new careers!
“Head Hygienist” was a title jokingly given her by another staff member many years ago, but one that we continue to call her to make her smile. Susan’s gentle spirit, and even gentler hands, combined with her love of people, make her a favorite of many. She is our office “Diva”: she loves clothes, shopping, furniture, and decorating. Most of all, she loves her family deeply. Her grace touches everyone around her, and her innocence makes for lots of laughter around our office. We often have to explain the punch line to her! When she laughs, you can’t help but laugh along! Susan only works Mondays and Tuesdays, so she books up quickly.
This allows her the time on her days off to do all the things she loves and brings her so much joy, which includes her family, church, and friends. If you would like to have an appointment with Susan, be sure to schedule it with plenty of time in advance.
Deep down, Lynette wants to be the doctor, so we keep her happy by calling her Dr. McKenna. She possesses a wealth of knowledge about most all subjects, but here’s the clincher: what she doesn’t know, she’ll never admit; she just makes something up! It took the rest of us a long time to discover this, but we’re starting to catch on!
Dr. Mark relies on her for almost everything, since she’s been his sidekick for more than 22 years. If you spend much time in the chair flanked by the two of them, you’ll soon discover they’re more like an old married couple than doctor and assistant.
Keri is one of Dr. Nordlie’s steadfast dental assistants. She works closely alongside him to make sure patients get the best possible care. Keri comes to us with experience in pediatric dentistry as well as general dentistry. She enjoys working with patients of all ages to help them smile again. What makes her smile? Being around people who work so well together.
Keri and her husband have been together for 11 years. They have two kids, Connor and Brady. As a family, they love spending time together, especially when they’re camping. Keri also enjoys baking, shopping, and going on long walks.
Insurance and Billing Coordinator
Kristen is our patients’ “go-to gal” for all their insurance, billing, and treatment estimation needs. She also handles our IT issues! Her formal education is interior design, but she found her calling after getting into the dental field. She’s a whiz at working in finance and helping patients with the financial side of their treatment, as well as problem-solving financial and insurance-related issues.
In her spare time, Kristen loves spending time with her family, especially hiking around Mt. Rainier, as well as playing with her two dogs, baking, and decorating.
