Gretchen, office administrator at 253 Dental Care in Federal Way, WA

Gretchen


Office Administrator


Welcome to 253 Dental Care! It is my pleasure to help you get the best possible dental care for you and your family. I love all aspects of dentistry, especially caring for patients and working with a staff that also believes in dentistry dedicated to excellence.

I work in the front office where I will schedule your visits, review financials, and work hard to find ways, like our membership program, to work within your budget to get the excellent treatment you require to maintain a healthy mouth.

I started in the dental field in the 80's and joined this incredible team in 2010.

Away from work I enjoy my four grandchildren and all of their activities along with gardening and biking.

Jessica


Registered Dental Hygienist


As a Dental Hygienist I educate my patients on the importance of oral health, offer instructions on plaque control, complete dental prophylaxis by removing deposits as well as staining from teeth and below the gum margins. I support Dr. Walker with the detection of gum disease by examining gums and treating every patient's needs accordingly. I started working with Dr. Walker's team in January of 2024.

I started working in the dental field in 2011, and graduated from Savannah Technical College with a Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2013.

The favorite part of my job is making my patients feel at ease by building trust and confidence. I love seeing results through patients implementing learned techniques and recommended products into their daily routine. Seeing their healthy smiles is my reward.

I love working with this team because as a new team member I was able to experience first hand how welcoming and competent everyone in this office is. It feels like being a part of a family away from home, and we all strive to find the best solution to the individual care our patients need as a team.

When I am not at work I try to explore new hiking trails, new recipes, or new books.
