Sophia

Scheduling Coordinator

I have been in the dental field for more than ten years and am currently the scheduling coordinator at Dr. Herrick’s office in Lacey, WA. I am the first smile to greet you and enjoy building patient relationships with each and every patient who walks in the door. I am passionate about serving our patients to the best of my ability and am fluent in Spanish. I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing and talented team!

I was born and raised in Centralia, WA and still live there with my family. I have two wonderful children, Aidan and Saidah, who keep me on my toes along with our sweet pup, Mia. We enjoy vacationing, camping and spending time outdoors any chance we get.

Vanessa

Financial Manager

I joined Dr. Herrick’s team in 2017 and I have 12 years of experience in the dental field and am bilingual, as I am fluent in Spanish. As financial manager, I enjoy guiding our patients through their visit from the initial phone call, to checking out after a great dental experience. I strive to stay knowledgeable about all dental treatments and insurances in order to give patients the best understanding about their dental treatment possible. I look forward to coming to work each day knowing I’ll be working with the best 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 incredible team that also finds time to have fun every day!

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 has 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 three young boys, am an avid CrossFit athlete, and a toothbrush fanatic. I also love animals and have two dogs and two cats that are very much a part of the family!

Fay

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for more than 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 a hard-working team! As a dental assistant, my duty is 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.
