Erin | Scheduling Coordinator

I have been an administrator in the dental field for a total of 8 years and am the Financial Manager at Dr. Herrick’s office. I love being able to educate patients about their insurance benefits or assisting them in planning their finances, in order to help them achieve their dental needs. I enjoy interacting with our patients personally, whether it’s hearing about their children, or chatting about their upcoming vacation.

I grew up and still reside in Lacey with my teenage son and toy dog. We enjoy visiting the Seattle area often, where my adult daughter lives. Outside of work, I am currently teaching acrobatics at a local studio to children ages 8 to 18. I also enjoy taking regular yoga classes and hope to obtain my yoga certification one day.

 

Vanessa | Financial Manager

I joined Dr. Herrick’s team in 2017, and am one of the first smiling faces to greet you as you walk in the door. I have 12 years of experience in the dental field and am bilingual, as I am fluent in Spanish. As office coordinator, I enjoy guiding our patients through their visit from the initial phone call, to checking out after a great dental experience.  I look forward to coming to work each day knowing I’ll be working with an amazing team to help our patients attain the healthy, beautiful smiles they deserve!

I live in Rochester with my family and our new puppy; an American Bully named Saint. I enjoy being a sports mom more than anything and am a HUGE Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Sounders fan! I am new to the outdoor life and have periodically traded in my heels for some hiking shoes to enjoy a sunny Northwest day.

 
 

Mindy | Registered Dental Hygienist

I’ve been a dental hygienist for 13 years and in that time, have become passionate about educating people on the importance of oral health. I really enjoy getting to know each of my patients personally and making them feel comfortable in the dental chair. I love that I get to work with such an amazing team every day, that also finds time to have fun!

I was born and raised in Washington and now live in Mason County with my best friend and husband, Justin and our goofy yellow lab, Nacho. We enjoy traveling, backpacking, hiking and taking advantage of everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

 

Andrea | Registered Dental Hygienist

Something about dentistry has always inspired me! I graduated in 2004 with an Associate of Science degree and a Dental Assisting Certificate. I then went back to school and graduated in 2006 as a Registered Dental Hygienist. My passion for dentistry has grown over the years, as well as my knowledge and skill level. Establishing relationships and providing gentle, yet effective care, are my favorite parts of this job. I am so excited to be a part of Dr. Herrick's team and together we are going to change the face of dentistry!

I grew up in the Lacey area and continue to love living here. I am a married mother of 3 young boys, an avid CrossFit athlete, and a toothbrush fanatic. I also love animals and have 2 dogs and 2 cats that are very much a part of the family!

 

Fay | Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for over 20 years and still love what I do!  It’s my job to guide you through your dental visit and make you feel comfortable. I love seeing patients leave excited about their new smile. I joined Dr. Herrick’s office in 2012 and feel so lucky to work with a team that works hard and laughs just as hard.

Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy watching baseball and football. I’m very proud of my son and daughter who both attend Oregon State University…Go BEAVS! I also have a crafty side and like relaxing while scrapbooking and making greeting cards.
 

Lindsey | Certified Dental Assistant

I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College Dental Assisting Program in 2016 and went on to take the test to become a Certified Dental Assistant. I have been at Dr. Herrick’s office since January 2018 and love being a part of such an amazing team! As a dental assistant, it’s my duty to be by your side and lead you through your dental procedure. I believe every patient that steps foot in our office should receive the best quality care.

I grew up in Shelton, Washington where I went to high school and met my best friend Kenny. We have been together for 7 years and recently got married in October of 2017. When I’m not at work I love to spend time outdoors. I enjoy hunting, fishing and taking trips to ride quads at the dunes.
