We recognize that all our young 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 child 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.
It’s so much fun to help kids learn that they don’t need to worry about coming to see us. Once they see our smiles, and see their fellow patients laughing and joking with our team, they relax a lot. Seeing a child smile at the end of the visit is the best feeling! I manage the office, answer our phones, set regular appointments, and schedule general anesthesia appointments. I also work on community outreach, explain treatment plans, handle payments and nightly deposits, and am here to help with whatever is needed.
My family keeps me busy outside of work. I’m married to Stephen and have two children: Logan is my son and Liberty is my daughter. We also have two dogs, Lola and Phylo. I enjoy reading, writing, and blogging, and love dog shows.
Patient Care Coordinator
It is great to see the kids leave so happy after their dental appointment! Even if they are a bit apprehensive when they arrive, the movie on the television, building blocks, or playhouse will end up putting them at ease. I am responsible for the patient scheduling, coordinating treatment, answering the phones, making recall calls, and most importantly, handing out the Crayola™ Color Wonder sheets to the kiddos!
I love spending time with my family and friends outside of work. I am married with two beautiful kids. I may be new to the office, but my five years of experience as a preschool teacher are very helpful. I love working here because the whole team is super-friendly and supportive, and Dr. de Luna is awesome with the kids!
Patient Care Coordinator / Dental Assistant
I’ve been in the dental field for a few years now, having worked as a general dental assistant, orthodontic assistant, and pediatric assistant before moving to my current patient care coordinator role. While most of my time is spent at the front desk, I still assist Dr. de Luna from time to time. My favorite part of my job is seeing the kids leave the office happy and excited after their appointments. Their smiles are the best!
At home, I have a husband and three boys. I love spending time with family and crafting in my free time.
Lead Dental Assistant
I love working with kids. I’ve always been a people person, and spending my days surrounded by smiling, happy kids is simply the best. It’s fun to watch kids get excited about taking care of their teeth, and I am glad to be part of that process. I assist Dr. de Luna as he cares for patients; I sit chairside and support him and our patient. I also order our dental equipment and supplies, ensure everything is sterilized, and answer questions from patients and parents.
My husband Jason and my daughter Chloe, and my bonus daughter Riley, are my focus outside of work. I also love to travel, enjoy playing softball and going snowboarding, and am a fan of major league baseball. By the way, I go to Disneyland at least once a year.
I love making sure our patients have fun during their visits. When I can get a shy child to open up with me, or a fearful child to start laughing and relaxing, I’m thrilled. This is a positive space, with a great team, and our patients soon learn to look forward to coming to see us. Our patients often have me laughing while I clean their teeth and assist Dr. de Luna during dental procedures. Seeing happy smiles at the end of a visit is a great feeling, and always my goal.
My husband Therman and I have two children: our son, Therman IV, and our daughter, Kenadie. We also have a family dog, Bella. I enjoy spending quality time with my family, attending my kids’ sporting events, and traveling.
I attended Cascadia Tech Academy and was lucky enough to have interned at DELUNA KIDS DENTAL before I was offered a full-time position! In many ways it felt like coming home, as Dr. de Luna was my pediatric dentist and this team is like my family! They taught me about the importance of taking care of my smile and now I’m sharing that knowledge with the kids I see. I’m so happy to be part of a team that is so happy and full of life every day. They make me laugh and smile just as much as the kids!
When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing with my Corgi dog Daisy, helping with my brother’s robotic team, and spending time with my family and friends.
I graduated from the dental program at Cascadia Tech Academy in 2022. I started my pursuit of a career in dentistry as a sterile tech and am now a registered dental assistant at DELUNA KIDS DENTAL. I’m a former patient of Dr. de Luna, and he and this team provided me with positive and supportive dental care. Now I get to do the same! I highly enjoy working with young kids and being able to do their cleanings. It’s always great to see a clean and happy smile! I also like the conversations and overall communication with both kids and parents. I believe conversation is key to a comfortable experience and a healthy environment.
I am a graduate of Heritage High School. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis and the piano.
Finance / Marketing
I love making sure our practice runs smoothly, so the team can focus on what’s important: our patients! I work with a great group of people, and love seeing them build strong friendships with our patients and their families. Hearing the shared laughter as they swap jokes always makes me smile. I handle all accounting matters for the practice, including budgeting, purchasing, and payroll, along with our human resources and marketing/social media.
When I’m not working, I love traveling, especially exploring the Portland/Vancouver area and the Northwest. I love flying and am a big nerd, with a BA, MA, and MBA. I love building blocks and love that I get to build the office display models!
