I work as the scheduling and treatment plan coordinator for Dr. Gagliardi. I schedule appointments, work on treatment plans, and help patients make the most of their insurance plans. I have been working here for 20 years, and truly believe we have the best patients! They make us the luckiest practice around! I love to visit with them and hear how their lives are going. We have literally watched a lot of families grow up. It’s a lot of fun!

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband, Ron, and our three grown kids, Courtney, Samantha, and Kyle.

As the business and financial coordinator for 22 years, I interact with our patients through the phone, greeting them upon arrival for their appointments, scheduling appointments, and giving treatment presentations with financial arrangements. I also do my best to answer any questions they may have about anything here in the office regarding treatment, appointments, and finances. I enjoy having personal chat time and getting to know them as a person.

I have been married to my husband, Robert, for 33 years, and we enjoy living in Gig Harbor. We have three grown children and five grandchildren!

I’m a registered dental hygienist in our office, and I truly love my job! I enjoy interacting with my patients and helping them relax and enjoy their time in the dental chair. Dr. Gagliardi is fun to work with, is gentle and caring with our patients, and creates beautiful dental restorations! I trust him to take great care of my family’s oral health!

At home, I spend time with my two girls, Sarah and Libby, along with our doggie Jojo! I also enjoy reading, sailing, yoga, kickboxing, and jogging.

As a dental assistant, I assist Dr. Gagliardi during restorative procedures and help make our patients feel comfortable during each appointment. I have been working here for 15 years, and really enjoy getting to know our patients! I like to hear what their hobbies are and about their family if I don’t already know all of them.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Mike. We have two dogs and two birds at home. I like to do yard work, and also enjoy walking and riding bikes.
