Hi, my name is Dorothy. I completed my dental hygiene degree in 2016 and have been practicing in the Olympia area ever since. I have been part of Dr. Talaber’s team off and on since 2017. I like to think of myself as my patients’ personal trainer because not only do I provide excellent gentle care during appointments, but I also help people to manage their oral health more effectively in between visits. When I’m not working, I enjoy visiting the desert with my daughter and playing with our wide variety of pets.
