Sarah, dental assistant
Sarah: Lead Dental Assistant

Sarah is originally from Southern California. She moved here with her boyfriend (now fiance’) after graduating high school. Sarah completed the Dental Assistant Program in 2016 and joined Dr. Moua’s team in 2017. Sarah keeps the back office running smoothly and giving our patients the best care possible. Sarah is a twin and comes from a large family that includes a second set of twins. Sarah enjoys exploring nature, traveling, listening to good music, eating good food and going to the gym. She and her fiancé have two adorable pug pups that keep them on their toes!

Joeli Cook: Dental Assistant

Born and raised in Washington, Joeli has been a dental assistant since 2018. She has experience with general dentistry, oral surgery, orthodontics and prosthodontics. Her goal is to make people as comfortable as possible when coming to the dentist. In her free time, she loves hiking, thrift shopping, going on roadtrips and finding new coffee shops to try. Joeli also enjoys spending time with her dog, her 2 cats and chameleon.

Eryn: Scheduling Coordinator/Dental Assistant

Eryn grew up in Redmond, moved to Utah where she stayed for 15 years and adopted two children. She moved back to Seattle in 2016 to take care of her mom who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and joined our practice in 2018. Eryn brought with her many years of dental experience and has been a great asset to our team. She loves the outdoors, walks on the beach and playing with her kids and their dog Mylo!

Michelle: Dental Hygienist

Michelle is committed to making hygiene appointments a comfortable and positive experience while also providing the highest quality of care. She has worked in dentistry since 2007. Michelle started as a dental assistant and knew early on that she loved the field and would go on to become a dental hygienist one day. Michelle graduated from dental hygiene school in 2015 and started with us that very same year. In her spare time she enjoys live music and spending time with her family.

Tami, office manager
Tami: Office Manager

Tami has been in dentistry for over 34 years – she has been with this practice since 1998 (she was here before Dr. Moua!) She says the best part of her job is the patients. She enjoys the everyday interactions and the ability to help others. Tami is married and has two grown children. Her favorite place is Maui and she hopes to move there one day!

Dr. Moua

Dr. Moua loves being a dentist because of how rewarding it is to help others but also because of the balance it allows for his personal life. That being said, he finds it extremely enjoyable to provide general dentistry, especially to people who are typically anxious when it comes to seeing the dentist. A self-proclaimed people pleaser, he’s extremely patient with our patients who need extra time or sedation to comfortably complete their procedures.

Along with his dedication to our patients, Dr. Moua specifically selected each member of his team for not just their skills, but also their personalities. He believes that the workplace should be made up of people who genuinely enjoy one another’s company, and it influences the environment that we create for our patients.

Dr. Lim

Dr. Hyunsoo Lim was born in South Korea but came to the United States at an early age, living in Minnesota briefly before moving to the Greater Seattle region where he has spent the majority of his life. He attended Cornell University for his undergraduate studies obtaining a Bachelor in Biological Sciences. Upon graduating, he attended the New York University College of Dentistry.

During his time in New York, he volunteered providing dental services to the underserved communities in the Bronx and in Brooklyn. Beyond the United States, he has also traveled internationally to help the local communities in the Lima area with limited access to dental care in Peru.

He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the Washington State Dental Association, and the King County Dental Society and takes a variety of continuing education courses to provide the best possible care for his patients.

In his free time, Dr. Lim enjoys spending time with his friends and family. He takes interest in biking around the Pacific Northwest, gardening (ask about his Beard Iris collection!), and playing tennis when the season allows.
