Meet The Team

Dr. Christopher Koontz


Dr. Koontz was raised in Enumclaw, Washington. After graduating from Enumclaw High School in 2004, Dr. Koontz attended Brigham Young University, where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience.

Upon finishing dental school, Dr. Koontz was excited to return to work in Enumclaw and has been here ever since.

Dr. Koontz enjoys motorbiking, snowmobiling, mountaineering and pretty much any outdoor activity. You can find Dr. Koontz hiking Mt. Peak early in the morning or climbing Mt. Rainier. Dr. Koontz lives in Enumclaw with his wife, Nicole on a small farm.



Lindsay was born and raised local to Enumclaw. She has been in the dental field for 15 years (including dental assisting and dental hygiene school) and has been a dental hygienist for the last 10 years. She became a hygienist because of her desire and motivation to help and educate others as well as her love for making connections and relationships. She says "I love that my job helps people in their overall health; one thing I'd like people to know is that I value and appreciate them trusting me with their oral health, I don't take that lightly." Lindsay is also interested in expanding her knowledge of myofunctional therapy. Her hobbies include raising her 2 children, hiking, riding horses, and spending time with family and friends. She hopes to have her own property someday as she enjoys the agriculture and farming the Enumclaw area offers.

Dental Assistant

Avery was born and raised in Enumclaw. She graduated from Pima Medical Institute for dental assisting in 2021. Her favorite thing about being a dental assistant is meeting new people and helping them restore their smile.

Trina has been in the dental field for 25 years. She completed a Dental Assisting program in 1996 and began working in a dental office both as an assistant to the dentist, and as an administrative assistant in the front office. She has enjoyed being an office manager for 8 years, and joined our team in the Spring of 2021. She loves the dental field and helping patients through the process of receiving great dental care.

She will guide you through each step alongside the rest of the Koontz Dental team. She is available to answer any of your questions, especially regarding your dental treatment and any financial assistance. She has lived in the community for 20 years and has enjoyed raising her two boys in Enumclaw. Trina appreciates her time with her family and looks forward to traveling with them when she can.

Insurance Coordinator

Darlene started out as a dental receptionist in 1995. Shortly after she focused on insurance billing and payment for patients. She is our liaison between the patient and insurer, making sure the patient's claims are processed correctly and in a timely manner.

Kate can be found at the front desk with a warm greeting when you arrive, answering your questions and calls and helping you check out at the end of your appointment. She began her dental journey back in high school where she did her senior project at Koontz Dental covering all topics one would see at an office. She worked as an assistant for 3 years then made the transfer to the front desk. She enjoys supporting patients to have a positive experience during their dentist visit and love’s building relationships with patients from her very own community. In her free time, she loves camping and spending time with her husband, family and friends and playing with her two crazy dogs.
