About MJ
              Dental Hygienist

To meet and complete the growing needs of our preventative dental program, I recently invited another veteran dental hygienist with 25+ years experience to join our illustrious dental team.

MJ (a.k.a. Mary Jean) comes to us with a long history of various dental experiences and achievements. She was introduced to the dental profession at age 16 working as a chairside assistant for her family dentist. She worked her way through college and attained a Masters Degree in Education while working as an assistant for an oral surgeon in Illinois, her home state. Relocating to Seattle in 1980 she was assistant to the Chief of Dental Services at Seattle's VA hospital while completing her dental hygiene degree at the University of Washington. She has continued to hone her hygiene skills by enrolling in continuing education classes, attending workshops and independently contracting her services throughout the Greater Seattle Area since 1984.

MJ's out-of-office interests include singing in the Seattle Women's Chorus, volunteering at Farestart (a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals).

MJ loves the adventure of international travel, especially via bicycle. Some of her destinations include Uganda, Vietnam, Prague, the Greek Islands, Cuba and the Galapagos. But she'll be the first to admit, "the best part of traveling is coming home".
