Meet the Kingston Dental Team
Jessica, Office Manager
Jessica has been with the practice since 1995 and jokes “there should be a law against child labor.” She started as a Certified Dental Assistant and is now the Office Manager. She uses her years of clinical knowledge and patient care to assist you with all of your scheduling and financial needs. It is Jessica’s goal to make you feel comfortable and at home here at Kingston Dental.
In her spare time, she is an avid football fan and also enjoys epic camping, hiking, mountain biking, and traveling with friends. She has two wonderful girls and a beautiful granddaughter. She is happily married to her best friend and high school sweetheart, Scott. She is involved with the community as a Kingston Rotarian. Jessica recently acquired a business with her best friend Lisa, called The Vintage Housewife, which they're merging with their original business, Vintage Pearl, where they sell some adorable retail items as well as refurbished vintage pieces. You can find them downtown Poulsbo on Front Street.
Jessica urges you to come and visit, “Dr. Couch is a great dentist and is a lot of fun to work with. Come see for yourself. We have a great team!”
Taylor, Patient Coordinator
Taylor started with the practice in 2015 with excitement and eagerness, and will be the one to greet you with a smile as you come to visit. With a background in marketing and communications, she brings a bit of a different dynamic to Kingston Dental. She takes pride in her work and the growth of the practice. “The team here is both patient-oriented and compassionate. We take care of our patients while having a great time together.”
Taylor lives by the motto "If your dreams don't scare you, then they simply aren't big enough!" She co-owns a Pacific Northwest wedding planning and design company, called Bixby + Pine. She loves wine tasting (and simply just wine!) and a good laugh. She watches Law & Order: SVU as much as possible and loves spending time with friends and family.
Also known as "Sister Sue", Sue is considered the "old" one of this group and says, "The KD team keeps me young by keeping me up to date and informed about the words to different songs, what certain "terms" mean and not to get too serious about myself - I love working with the team at Kingston Dental."
Sue believes KD has “just the right mix of laughter and fun, paired with quality dental knowledge to keep your appointments as enjoyable as possible, and with a fabulous outcome.” For those of you who have had the opportunity to visit Sue's chair know that she likes photography, enjoys her family, and commutes from Marysville. Sue is also known as the loud one of the team, but that's only because she's enthusiastic about life and dentistry.
Ashley joined the Kingston Dental team in the fall of 2012 after graduating with her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University, where she spent some time brightening peoples’ smiles. She enjoys serving the Kingston community, and is likes to build lasting relationships with her patients.
Ashley grew up in Port Orchard and enjoys many of the activities this beautiful state has to offer. In her spare time, she likes hiking, kayaking, and is a big football fan. She loves laughing and getting to know her patients. Ashley is recently married to Brian and they have two fur babies, Max and Molly.
She believes “dentistry should be fun as well as professional and I always strive to keep it that way.”
Heather realized that she’s been assisting for 16 years (yikes!). Having had her own fair share of time in the dental chair, she feels this allows her to really empathize with her patients.
Heather was born and raised in Washington, and is proud to say she lives in Kingston. She loves the feeling of community in her small town. Running, crossword puzzles, reading, camping, crafting, and spending time with her husband and three (young) children are some of her favorite things to do.
Heather says “KD is all about the patients; delivering excellent dentistry while listening to great music and having fun. I couldn’t be happier to serve the community I live in.”
The newest member of the team at KD, Brianna has been a dental assistant for 1.5 years. Brianna enjoys getting to know each of her patients and providing them with personalized care.
Brianna lives in Suquamish with her family. She is an avid horseback rider, enjoys spending time with her family, and having fun. Her son is two and loves Hot Wheels and Mickey Mouse.
Brianna says “KD is such a fun and loving environment to be in. All of our patient are treated with the best care we can provide.”
