I graduated from Pierce College, in Lakewood, with my Bachelors of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I recently got married to my husband, Nazar. Our favorite thing to do together is to go camping (more like glamping… haha)and enjoying a good cup of coffee. Yes, even dental hygienists drink coffee!

I am very passionate about dental hygiene and love building relationships with all of my patients. I truly enjoy getting to know each and every one of you and treating you the way I do my own family. I love educating about oral health and how it correlates to overall health. My dental hygiene goal is to make sure that you are comfortable being in my chair and that you feel confident in knowing how to maintain a healthy smile at home and anywhere you go. I’m so excited to work with each and every one of you!



Nicole started her dentistry career in 1995 as a dental assistant. She then became a stay at home mom until returning to college in 2003. She graduated from Eastern Washington University with her BS in Dental Hygiene in 2008 and has been working as a hygienist since. Following in her parents’ footsteps (who were both teachers), she is very passionate about providing education and sharing her knowledge about dental health. Nicole was born and raised in Enumclaw. She married her high school sweetheart and has two daughters. She loves to travel, travel, and more travel! Nicole also enjoys cooking and being with her family.
