Meet the Staff

Office Manager

Katrina • Office Manager

Katrina has been with the practice since well before Drs. O’Brien and Batjer took over in 2003. She has extensive knowledge of the complications of insurance coverage and can answer almost any question a patient (or one of the dentists) can throw at her. Her experience and knowledge was indispensable to the transitioning dentists in 2003 and continues to grow as the insurance companies keep changing the rules. Despite appearing to devote all her time to the minutiae of insurance policies and helping to run the practice, she also is a devoted wife and mother to three.

The Hygienists

Colleen • RDH

Colleen has been with the practice full time since 2007 after filling in when needed for years prior. A long suffering Mariner’s fan and mother of one son she, too, is a favorite among patients. Thorough, yet gentle, we have been told many times by patients that it was the best cleaning they’ve ever experienced.

The Dental Assistants

Dental Assistants are critical to any procedure. They are there to help the dentist, assuage any concerns of the patient, and to answer any questions that may arise. We strongly feel we have two of the best in the business

Jennifer • RDA

Hi, my name is Jen and I’m a native of Tacoma. I have been a dental assistant since 2000 and became part of this great team in 2006. I truly enjoy our staff and patients. Outside of work my time is spent with friends, family, and my amazing son, Tre.
