Meet Our Team
Carrie, Dental Hygienist
I like helping my patients achieve the best possible dental health they can. Seeing a person take control of their smile’s health is so rewarding! With lots of patient education, support, and encouragement, Dr. Larsen and our team really do improve lives.
I clean teeth, perform scaling and root planing, assess periodontal health, and administer anesthetic. While working with my patients, I talk with them about the connection between oral and overall health and how they can achieve healthy smiles and bodies. When a person comes for a recall visit and I can see he or she has made positive changes, I can’t help but smile.
Loette, Business Administrator
I enjoy building relationships with patients and seeing people become excited about caring for their oral health. I’ve known some of our patients for more than 30 years, and they feel like family to me! It’s a great feeling to work with such a talented doctor and team, each of whom cares for our patients with respect and compassion.
I keep Dr. Larsen’s books full and answer the phones. I also handle insurance pre-determinations, process claims, and serve as the financial coordinator, so I oversee billing. Working with patients, I review treatment plans, too. Since I’m a registered and certified dental assistant, I’m able to answer questions about procedures and options.
Outside of work, I enjoy time with my husband of almost 50 years, three grown children, and eight grandchildren. I also like music, cooking, sewing, church activities, and pampering my two cats.
Stacia, Registered Dental Hygienist
I earned my Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene from Eastern Washington University and worked at family dental offices in Spokane for two years. As a new member of Dr. Larsen’s staff, I am looking forward to working on a team to help improve patients’ oral health. The best part of my job is getting to know our family of patients and helping them to feel as comfortable as possible.
My husband, Morgan, and I were married in August 2017. We have a Chihuahua named Opie. A native of western Washington, I love all things outdoors, such as hiking, biking, and camping. I have a passion for music and love being involved with local community theaters.
Amber, Registered Dental Assistant
I began dental assisting in April of 2015 and fell in love with it! I have attended various training courses on a wide variety of topics. Aside from my interest and passion in the procedures we practice, my favorite part about my job is the patient interaction. My goal is to be a light to those around me and to create an experience for patients that is friendly and comfortable. I love working at Dr. Larsen’s office because we all truly work as a team and in doing so, I feel we provide excellent care for our patients.
I have had roots in the Palouse my entire life and have lived here myself for the last six years. Outside of my time at work, my husband and I enjoy getting outdoors to play disc golf, going out to eat, and watching movies with our cat, Olive. My favorite hobby of all is baking and cake decorating.
Mariela, Registered Dental Assistant
My husband and I are from Yakima, WA and have been on the Palouse for three years. In our spare time, my husband and I take our dog, Jax, or our nephew, Noel, hiking and exploring the local scenery. I enjoy traveling, cooking, trying different foods, and being surrounded by my family. During my time at the office, I love to interact with many patients! I enjoy getting to know our patients in order to create a good, trusting relationship. I assist the doctor by providing optimal patient care and making sure our patients have the best, most comfortable visit possible. I always look forward to working with a team that is so passionate about patient care and providing the best treatment for our patient family.
