“My passions for dentistry started when I was very young! Dental visits were always a fun and positive experience for me.

My bubbly personality sets the tone for a happy visit.”

Hygienists

Dental Hygienist Regina Angel

Regina Angel
Hygienist

“It all started with a job offer as a dental assistant in high school. Dentistry was not a career path I chose, but after finishing the apprenticeship, I wanted to stay in dentistry. I wanted to become a hygienist mainly because of the interaction with people. The absolute best part of my job is helping people with their oral health and developing a trusting relationship with them. I believe compassion is the most valuable asset I bring to my job besides being a skilled clinician. Most patients are fearful in the dental chair, and showing understanding of their fears and needs is incredibly important for successful treatment outcome.”

Education and Experience:

  • Dental Assistant degree in 1987 in Neustadt, Germany
  • Graduated in 1995 from Pierce College with a degree in Dental Hygiene
  • Received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Washington in 1997
  • Volunteered for the last four years at the SKCC event, providing free dental care for the underserved

What do you do outside of the office?

“I love spending time with my family! We love to hike the beautiful outdoors, go cross-country skiing, and cook together. We travel mostly to Europe to see family. Another great passion is reading. I always have a book in my hand! Horseback riding is a lifelong hobby of mine.”

Who is your hero?

“My girls! They are such wonderful, strong human beings who surprise me every day because no matter what the day may bring, they always make me smile and help me believe in the good in people.”

What’s one item on your bucket list?

“Travel to Austrailia.”

What’s your spirit animal?

“The horse. Not only because I have always loved horses, but because of their gentle and trusting nature, beauty, and intelligence.”
