Meet the Team


Amy – Registered Dental Hygienist

I was a dental assistant before graduating from Eastern Washington University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Since graduating, I’ve continued my passion in helping my community bring confidence back through their smile. I am a cat person and have 2 fury tuxedo kids of my own, that I rescued. Their names are Jax and Lou. I’m a foodie at heart and I understand the importance of having a great set of teeth to enjoy this passion. I may not be a great cook, but I’m a great food critic. In my free time, I enjoy traveling along with doing missionary work to help those in need. Since joining the White Center Smiles team, I’ve found a new group of like-minded family that share the same passion and philosophy as myself. Our team has found a niche in our community to help improve the quality of life for everyone that comes through our door.


Anh Nguyen, RDH

My name is Anh! I’m one of the dental hygienists at White Dental Smiles and I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Eastern Washington University. When not at work, I enjoy cooking, baking, spending time with family and outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. I also love to travel and learn new things from places that I have visited.
As a dental hygienist, my goal is to improve my patients’ oral health by educating them and providing them with optimal care. Besides the passion I have for helping my patients improve their oral health, their smiles and their confidence, I also have a passion to help people who are really in need. I am also currently a part of a small non-profit charity in Vietnam. Despite the distance, I continue supporting and assisting my team to complete our mission in helping people.

Monina – Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary

Monina Speaks Tagalog

I have been fortunate to have found a career I truly enjoy and passionate about. Dentistry has been my calling as far as I can remember. I am blessed to be in the field where I continually learn new things. Being around great team members who share the same goal of providing excellent dentistry has been both rewarding and gives me great pride to be a part of.

When I’m not around patients, I am out and about enjoying life to the fullest. My family and friends keep me busy all year round. Traveling excites me the most. I look forward to new adventures of experiencing and learning new cultures. I equally enjoy being outdoors, whether it’s sailing, hiking, skiing or just simply being outside with nature.
