Born and raised in Washington Elizabeth Calton started her dental career back in 2009 when she joined the team. She initially started off as a sterilization tech working in the back. She transitioned to patient coordinator and eventually to office manager. You can always count on her to be that friendly smile that greets you when you enter the office. Having experience in both the back and front has made it easy to help her manage your child’s dental needs. When she is not in the office you can find her exploring the Pacific North West or tending to her garden.
We believe that those early dental visits shape a child’s future attitude towards dentistry. If we can provide positive experiences in the beginning, and present dentistry to children in ways that are easy to understand, we can reduce or eliminate any dental anxiety. We know we have done our job well when we hear kids say they’re excited to come back!
We have received special training in pediatrics to be able to give you insight into what to anticipate for your child’s oral growth and development. Additionally, our training in behavior management gives us the tools to treat children with special behavioral or medical conditions. This means we are able to tailor our treatment approach specifically to what your child needs.
Dental education and prevention is our passion. As we cultivate good oral hygiene in one child, an amazing phenomenon happens as awareness spreads to the whole family, resulting in better oral health for everyone! When a child is taught and empowered to take proper care of the teeth and gums, being cavity-free for a lifetime is actually possible.
Knowing this, we gladly offer our tips and tricks to make caring for your child’s teeth easier. Our goal is to partner with you as a resource for all things dental. Questions? You can always drop by, email, or call, and we’ll be happy to answer!
