JenHailey“I have been working with Jennifer for three years.  When I first started with Russell and Bode she was a dental assistant and now she works in the front office as our Patient Care Coordinator. Jen is the type of co-worker that everyone needs, she is willing and capable of supporting us with a large variety of tasks, both in the front and the back office.  She also genuinely cares about her team, the practice, and our patients.  I know everyone can feel that from her. I have witnessed Jen volunteering herself multiple times to help her team-members in need over the weekends – anything from car trouble to helping with a move.  She is the kind of person that everyone wants in their corner!  Thank you, Jen for being such a kind caring person both professionally and personally!” – Hailey

Featured Team Member: Amanda

“Amanda has assisted for me for the past two years.  In the beginning she was a really good, but somewhat inexperienced assistant.  Over the past two years she has become a truly great assistant.  From fillings to extractions to crowns to dentures, Amanda is prepared for the procedure and is excellent chair-side.

She is always cheerful and smiling.  She is a natural at making patients feel comfortable and attending to each patient’s individual needs.

We spend our entire days side by side treating patients, so I am lucky that I also enjoy her company very much.  We love to talk about our kids and parenting and the Seahawks.”
