Meet the Staff



Kaitlin was raised in the sunny southwest but got sunburnt too easily to stick around. Around 19 years old, she fell in love with Washington’s lush forests, and endless rainy days. She decided to make Washington home. Kaitlin started dental assisting in the endodontic specialty over seven years ago and has spent the last few years moving to the administrative side. Kaitlin is a science and medical nerd holding a few other healthcare-related certifications in the lab and nursing-related fields. She recently spent a few years out of the state caring for her dad and returned to WA in 2022 to set down roots finally and live a quiet life with her husband, 12-year-old cat, Mr. Kitten, and her hundreds of house plants.



I was born in Eastern Canada, spent my childhood years in New England, and have lived in Seattle for 10 years. A recent graduate from PIMA Dental Assistant program, I am enthusiastic about dental care and being there for patients in their time of need. I am eager to continue learning the practice of dentistry and giving back to the community through volunteering. Aside from my dental career, I am a professional musician/educator who plays music all over Pacific Northwest region and orchestrates for various symphonic groups. In my spare time, I enjoy playing piano, hiking, drinking coffee, and doing crossword puzzles.



My name is Kidist but you can call me Kiddy. I was born in Ethiopia and moved to Seattle when I was very young. I am the youngest in my family. People describe me as easy going and a good listener. I worked for 9 years at a Montessori school where I taught children ages 2 to 5 years old before I decided to go back to school and become a dental assistant. I have been a dental assistant for over 2-1/2 years now and love what I do! In my free time, I enjoy a moonlight stroll on the beach, listening to music and cooking Ethiopian food. I like getting people excited about my passion for knowledge and that is teaching and learning anything and everything!
