Meet the Team

We’ll Keep You Smiling!

Our team … what to say?! They are amazing! The spirit among our team is truly exceptional. Communication is a big thing here: communication with each patient and with each other, so no small details are missed. Every single person here lends a hand and supports their teammates. This allows them to serve our patients in the most incredible way. Procedures are thoroughly explained, comforting amenities are offered, and all the t’s are crossed and the i’s dotted when it comes to the details. These people know dentistry and they know patient service! — Dr. Rentschler

The team at RDC is the most loyal group of people I have ever worked with. I have never met a staff that has stayed put at one office for so long: some of them a whole decade! In addition to their loyalty to the practice, they are loyal to our patients and are always looking for ways to be a step above with the patient experience and patient care! — Dr. Hobart

 

Kristina

Dental Assistant

It’s rewarding to build relationships with our patients and be part of their dental transformation, helping each achieve great dental health!

With over a decade at our office, Kristina delivers exceptional patient care during treatments, to ensure a comfortable experience during procedures. She also takes records, handles sterilization, and prepares the clinic. Her other duties include ordering clinical supplies, assisting with PR and at the front desk, and assisting the hygienists when needed. 

Kristina and her husband recently moved to Skagit Valley with their German Shepherd dog, Remi. The couple enjoys adventures with Remi, especially exploring trails and parks, and making memories with friends and family.

 

Shelli

Dental Assistant

I like working chairside: helping the doctor and our patient. I particularly enjoy restorative procedures and seeing how happy patients are after treatment is complete and they feel confident in their smile!

Shelli makes sure patients are comfortable before, during, and after their treatment. Beyond her many clinical tasks, she assists with sterilization and hygiene appointments and is truly invested in our patients' oral health. She assists the doctors during procedures, and supports her teammates whenever and however she can.

Shelli and her husband Chad have two young children, Zoe and Zander, who keep them busy with school and sports activities. The family loves living out in the country, in Sedro-Woolley, and being with their family and friends.

 

Jenny

Dental Assistant

I like meeting new people and giving them the confidence to overcome their fears of the dentist. I work hard to create a positive experience for each person, while also teaching them how to establish good oral hygiene to ensure future good health!

Jenny works in the clinic: seating and preparing patients for their procedures. She remains chairside, and assists the doctor while supporting their patient, to make sure everything goes smoothly. She completes a variety of tasks to ensure optimal experiences and exceptional patient care.

A Mount Vernon native, Jenny loves living in such a beautiful region. She and her boyfriend just bought their first home together, in Burlington, and welcomed a baby girl in May 2019. In her spare time, Jenny loves cooking, traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with family, friends, and their four fur babies.

 

Molly

Dental Assistant

I love everything about the dental field, from sterilization to assisting with various procedures. Each patient we see brings something different into the office and that makes each day, and every interaction, unique. Seeing a patient grateful for what we do makes me smile!

Molly assists chairside with patient care during various procedures and helps with treatment planning. She also takes impressions, fabricates temporary crowns and nightguards, and pours models.

Molly loves to bake and take on DIY projects, from a recent bathroom remodel to repurposing old fence wood into a headboard. She also loves to travel and explore with Noah, her boyfriend who’s also her best friend. She hopes, one day, to return to school and become a dental hygienist.

 

Devry

Registered Dental Hygienist

I value patient relationships and helping people learn efficient home care tailored to their individual oral health needs. Seeing a person put that information into practice, and having a healthier smile at their next visit, makes my day!

Devry provides patient care and comfort during cleanings, administers local anesthetic when needed, and keeps patient and treatment records current. She focuses on patient education, and finds practical changes people can make that have a lasting impact on their smile health.

Originally from Eastern Idaho, Devry, her husband Preston, and two sons, Deakon and Cohen, love living in Mount Vernon. When she’s not playing taxi and running the boys between their activities, Devry enjoys crafting, decorating, and DIY home projects. She looks forward to visiting with family and friends, and weekly date nights with Preston.

 

Vhari

Registered Dental Hygienist

A favorite part of my profession is building relationships with my patients. I enjoy getting to know each person while also addressing their dental hygiene needs. It is rewarding to create these relationships, and I am thankful when individuals entrust me with their dental healthcare.

Vhari provides a range of preventive and maintenance dental hygiene care, including thorough cleanings that are individualized to the patient’s unique concerns. She also offers evidence-based information to help people make positive changes that improve their oral and overall health.

Vhari and her husband, Alan, have a daughter and they enjoy traveling and seeing new places. She loves family time, visiting warm beaches, reading, and their pets. In fact, the humans in her household are outnumbered by their pets: a dog, two cats and a bunny! Vhari is an active member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association and has served the Washington State Dental Hygienists’ Association in many positions including president-elect, president, and immediate past president.

 

Jessica

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love my interactions with our patients! I love the “ah-ha” moments, and seeing the results of the positive changes patients have made to improve their own oral health. Of course, there’s the satisfaction of clean teeth at the end of an appointment, too!

Jessica focuses on patient education, prevention, and the treatment of periodontal disease and tooth decay. She performs cleanings, including preventive, maintenance, and periodontal therapy. She also provides individualized oral health education, based on the patient’s needs.

Jessica is an avid traveler. She tries to take at least one international trip a year and smaller trips during the rest of the year. She volunteers in the nursery at her local church, spends a lot of time with her extended family, and plays co-ed softball and volleyball with her friends in Bellingham.

 

Andrea

Scheduling Coordinator

I enjoy interacting with and getting to know our patients. We serve a great community!

Andrea works in our front office. She welcomes patients, answers phone calls, accepts payments, schedules appointments, and contacts patients for recall visits.

Andrea and her husband Doug have two adult daughters, Carly and Lindy, and two granddaughters, Redley and Ivory. They also have a pudgy Jack Russell, Oliver James. She and her husband love to camp and visit national parks.

 

Sandy

Office Manager

I really enjoy our patients and seeing them through their needs at RDC. I want each person’s experience here to be happy and positive, from the moment they walk in, through their treatment and checking out. The team at RDC is a great group of people to work with: They are serious about what they do and genuinely care about the comfort and well-being of our patients.

As office manager, Sandy keeps us organized and prepared to give our patients the best possible care and experience. She handles financials, payroll, scheduling, and end-of-month reports, along with treatment plans, insurance matters, and supporting our staff.

Sandy and Jeff live in Arlington with their two cats, Sam Chumlee and Bo. They love spending time with their children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends. Sandy also loves to paint with water colors, travel, bake and cook, hike, and search for sea glass on the beach.

 

John

Administrator

I love that what I do allows the rest of the team to focus on patient care and create the best experience for our patients!

Our office administrator, John, handles many of the behind-the-scenes details that keep the practice running. He manages payroll, makes deposits, and updates, upgrades, and manages all computer systems. He also talks with dental vendors, maintains and replaces equipment, and assists with sterilization and hygiene when needed. In addition, he’s becoming proficient with front desk duties.

John and Dr. Amanda have been married for more than a decade. They have a beautiful, silly, funny, and adventurous daughter, Linkyn, who keeps them busy. John enjoys time with family and friends, kayaking, bike rides with the family, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest. He’s also a huge NBA fan and a super fan of the Portland Trail Blazers, as well as an NFL fan, and yes, a Seahawks fan, too!
