Meet the Team

Carley

Practice Administrator / Registered Dental Assistant

I enjoy welcoming new patients and catching up with those we’ve been seeing for awhile. We have an amazing staff here. Everyone is supportive and friendly, and genuinely cares about our patients as people. I started working in the dental field in 2010 as an assistant, and joined our team in 2012.

Outside of work, I like being with my kids. We enjoy hiking, camping, and taking fun day trips, fishing and playing board games.

 

 

Shantel

Practice Administrator / Registered Dental Assistant 

I enjoy meeting and learning about our patients. I love building relationships with our patients and treating them like family. I have been with this practice since 2021 and I love my co-workers. I have been in the dental field since 2019 and a Registered Dental Assistant for three years. I have been at this practice since 2021. 

Outside of the office, I enjoy riding in our side by side, driving my GTO, and being a dog mom. 

 

Renee

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist since 2000. I moved from the west side of Washington and started working in this office in 2021 and I have loved meeting all of our patients. 

When I am not at work, I am a thrill seeker! I enjoy gardening, exploring, and anything outdoors. 

 

Josh

Registered Dental Hygienist

To be a hygienist is more than a "dental janitor" or "tooth fairy". We all have heard a multitude of stereotypes and some are so true that you can't help but laugh. So as a hygienist, I confidently agree to disagree, but with a smile. Each patient is unique which means there is no cookie cutter patient treatment plan that fits all. With that said, staying up to date with every advancing technology and modern techniques is important for optimal patient care.

Choosing a dental office can be an endeavor and looking for the right dental home is an investment that requires trust earned over time.  Building rapport with each patient is more than a conversation but an understanding of them as a whole. This allows us as a dental team to hone in on each patient collectively and not as a case subject. I personally believe that treatment performed should be nothing less than treatment expected to receive. With this in mind, I aim to make each patient comfortable, motivated and knowledgeable to their specific dental goals.

 

Nicole

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a Hygienist for about 26 years. I worked at EWU for about 10 years and I started at this office in 2022. This office has such a great atmosphere and Dr.Cazan is great. 

Outside of work, I enjoy watching my twins play sports, I love playing basketball, and running. 

 

LeeAnna

Certified and Registered Dental Assistant

I enjoy working with our knowledgeable, fun, and caring staff, along with our wonderful doctors, as we provide optimal care. We have a compassionate environment and are devoted to patient comfort and wellbeing. My experience in the field started in 2002 and I joined our team in 2007. This is, simply put, the best practice!

I grew up in Whitman County and enjoy spending my free time with my husband and three girls.

 

Brittany

Registered Dental Assistant

I'm from Ohio, moved to Washington in 2020. I've been at this practice for about 1.5 years, but I have been in dentistry for over 9 years. I also do real estate/mortgage loans and have a rental home back home in Ohio. I grew up on a farm, in the middle of nowhere, so moving here has definitely been a change but I love it! I love our practice because we're like one big family, so it feels like a home away from home rather than just "work." I enjoy getting to know all of our patients and meeting tons of new people! Outside of work, I enjoy traveling and basically anything outdoors! Hiking, hunting, fishing, etc. :)

 

Karen

Registered Dental Assistant

I look forward to coming to work. This is my second home, and our doctors, team members, and patients feel like part of my extended family! After starting in the field in 1985, I joined Airway Heights Dental Center in 2009 and immediately knew I was in the right place. Everyone here is kind and gentle, and makes sure each patient is provided with excellent care.

My personal life revolves around my husband Russell, two children Kristen and Nicole, and horses, reading, and art.

 

Joan

Payables Coordinator / Registered Dental Assistant

I enjoy talking with and getting to know patients and their families. Everyone has stories to share, and I am always happy to hear their latest news and what’s happening in their world. I started here back in 1978 as a dental assistant, and have loved every day. We have wonderful doctors, a compassionate team, and a friendly environment.

My time off is spent volunteering with my church, experimenting in the kitchen, quilting, gardening, and meeting with my book club. Our son and his wife, who live in Pullman, are our constant joys, and we treasure time with them.
