Michael

Controller/Practice Manager

I am responsible for overseeing the operations of Go Family Dentistry to give patients a good experience, setting standards for the rest of our team, and promoting a well-organized and efficient practice. My favorite part of my line of work is not necessarily the logistics of what we do each day, though I love building processes, growing our people, and curating new targets for the team to achieve. Rather, what I love most about my job is the impact we have on our patients. I am passionate about building up a person’s future and providing them with the opportunity to achieve their dreams.

The love of my life has been the arts: music, dance, and theatre. It allows my creativity to wander wild and brings peace to my soul. Seattle has introduced me to culture in such a spectacular way, helping me gain too many pounds to count! Recently, I welcomed a fur baby into my life, Cleopatra, a Shih Tzu. She is unique in every single way and I love her dearly.

 

Kamal

Lead Assistant

I’ve been in the dental field since 2004, but I was lucky enough to join the Go Family Dental team in 2021. As a lead assistant, I get to oversee the creation of our dental crowns, which is both an art and science! I love our talent team and feed off all the positive energy in the office.

I truly love my job, but in my free time, I enjoy cooking and shopping!

 

Ekra

Dental Assistant

I completed the dental assisting program at Renton Technical College and acquired my AAS degree in 2020. My job at Go Family Dentistry involves assisting our doctors with procedures including extractions, implants, fillings, crowns, and even Invisalign®! I love seeing the smiles I get to put on patients’ faces after every visit, and knowing I helped them. I enjoy working in the dental field so much that I recently decided to continue my education to become a dentist! Dr. Hu is an amazing mentor, which encourages me to become as a great a dentist as he is.

I’m originally from Ohio but have lived in Washington almost my whole life. I enjoy reading and going on walks, and am bilingual in English and Somali!

 

Ramandeep

Dental Assistant

I completed the dental assisting program at Bryman College in 2007, where I became well versed in assisting with fillings, extractions, cleanings, crowns, and Invisalign, just to name a few. My knowledge and experience makes me a great resource for our patients—I love when they ask me a question and I am ready with an answer! Dentistry is great because it allows me to meet all kinds of interesting people and help them live better, healthier lives.

Originally from India, I moved to California and then to Seattle, where I’ve lived for the past 17 years. I am married and have three wonderful children. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family and doing projects around the house. I am bilingual in English and Punjab.

 

Yelena

Treatment Coordinator

I am a firm believer that preventive dentistry saves teeth; the most rewarding memories I have are from the 20 years I spent as a dental hygienist. Now, I make patients feel comfortable and at home when I schedule their next appointment. I love seeing a better, healthier smile at every visit.

My hobbies outside of work are gardening and my dogs. I love bringing in fresh flowers to work every day!

 

Terrah

Scheduling Coordinator

I began my career in the dental field in 2014, working for seven years before I found the amazing, awe-inspiring team at Go Family Dental. We really are like a family here, treating each other and our patients with support and acceptance. I really enjoy working with patients and helping them be happy and confident in their smiles.

At home, I have a three-year-old daughter and two crazy huskies named Havoc and Khaos. We all love to play at the park or lake, and love anything that has to do with water. I’m always down for an adventure!

 

Trent

Insurance Coordinator

My role here at Go Family Dentistry involves confirming appointments, collecting patient information, and processing insurance. As a new member of the team, I’m grateful for all the kindness and patience I’ve been shown by everyone here.

Originally from Arkansas, I moved to Washington in 2021 after I graduated from college. In my free time, I love to hike, watch horror movies and true crime documentaries, go swimming, and play with my kitty!
