Mallory is the newest team member to Gig Harbor Endodontics. As a young student, Mallory job shadowed at dental offices and learned to appreciate the work that dentists do. Because she has always loved helping people, the dental field seemed like a good career fit. Mallory appreciates the opportunity to provide a relaxing environment to patients and help them have a good experience during their dental visit. She attended Clover Park Technical College dental assisting school and was an extern for Gig Harbor Endodontics before working at our sister office, Anchor Endodontics. Mallory was born and raised in Gig Harbor and is very active in her church youth group as a small group leader. Other activities that keep her busy are hiking, kayaking and playing music!
Linda joined our practice in 2016 with 16 years experience in the dental field. She started her career in oral surgery eventually moving to endodontics. She has worked 14 years in the endo field, specializing in different aspects of the front office. Working “up front,” her goal is to make patients feel welcome, putting them at ease and helping their experience in the office be comfortable and pleasant. Linda is a lifelong resident of the Northwest. She loves to spend time with her family. Linda and husband Tom have 6 children between them and 14 grandchildren to keep them busy. Her hobby is party planning and when she can, she likes to travel.
Nicole has been with Gig Harbor Endodontics for 8 years. As the office liaison, she has had the privilege to travel throughout Pierce, Kitsap and Mason County areas visiting the offices of our referring dentists. You will most likely find her on the road delivering lunches, flowers, or other seasonal goodies to show our appreciation for helping the practice thrive. When she's not working she enjoys her family, husband Ted and daughter Miranda. Together they like to camp, hike, fish, garden and frequent local farmer’s markets.
Tana joined our Endo family after working for a local pediatric practice. Wanting to be in the medical field, she joined dentistry on the recommendation of friends and went to the Colorado Dental Assisting School. She likes the focus on the mouth and teeth but enjoys the variety of specialties that dentistry offers. Tana is new to the Puget Sound area. Originally from sunny and hot Arizona, a year and a half ago the navy brought Tana and her husband here from Colorado. Her two fur babies, Axel Rose and Pochoko, keep her busy with new hikes and trips to the beach. She loves getting out and seeing the northwest sights: new restaurants, live music events, and all that Mother Nature offers. An avid Harry Potter fan, Tana is known to binge watch all 36 hours of movies in a weekend!
