Nancy

Nancy

Office Manager

I have worked in the dental field for more than 35 years, the last 21 of those right here at Bridle Trails Family Dentistry. My hard work and attention to detail is what helps our office run smoothly from day to day, whether I’m putting together billings, processing payroll, or running our staff meetings. I also spend a lot of time with our patients, some of whom I’ve known for decades! It is so much fun to see patients as kids, watch them grow up, and now see their kids! This office is a fantastic place; we all have fun while we work!

I am married and have five kids and five grandkids. I enjoy running, hiking, working out, and just being active. I also love being with all my kids and grandkids on our annual trip to Seaside, Oregon in the summer.


Veronica

Veronica

Front Office Coordinator

I completed a dental assisting program in Seattle in 2001 and joined Bridle Trails in the spring of 2007. As our front office coordinator, I schedule patient appointments, collect payments, and check patients in and out of their visits. I’m also available to assist Dr. Nomi if needed. Our patients are a great group of people, and getting to learn all about them is the best part of my job! Everyone, including each member of our team, is so unique and fun to work with!

After work, I love to hang out with my son, Dion. We love to go watch UW basketball, Mariners, Seahawks, and travel to Portland to watch the Trail Blazers. I also enjoy running 5Ks, practicing yoga, and playing co-ed flag football. I also love spending time with family and friends.


Kyli

Kyli

Front Office Coordinator

I completed a dental assisting program in 2009.  I have been with Bridle Trails Dentistry since August 2015.  I am responsible for greeting patients as they arrive, controlling the schedule, answering phones and various other office responsibilities. I also am able to assist as needed. I enjoy patient interaction and feel I learn something new every day.

Even though I have not been here long I feel like part of the office already. I was a patient here before I became an employee and feel honored to be a part of the team.

I spend most of my time with my husband and dog, Myah.  I love to support our local sports teams (Go Hawks!).  I also love outdoor adventures and take trips to see my family in Lake Chelan.  My hobbies include crafting, cooking, photography and always love shopping.

Judi

Judy

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Canada and graduated from the University of Manitoba Dental Hygiene program in 1999. I moved to Seattle in 2001 and have enjoyed a successful dental hygiene career here at Bridle Trail Dentistry since 2009. I focus all my attention on my patients’ dental needs and issues, performing preventive care and providing education with detail and passion. It is my goal to reduce dental phobias and fears, and restore my patients’ dental health while developing personal relationships.

When I’m not at work, I love spending weekends with my amazing husband and good friends. A few of my favorite things are weight training, chocolate, and a really cute pair of heels!


Kersti

Kersti

Registered Dental Hygienist

I received my BS in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Institute of Technology in 1994. After working in several other offices, I came to Bridle Trails in 2004. Aside from coming from a family of dentists and dental hygienists, my love of caring for people led me to pursue a career in dental hygiene. I love improving my patients’ oral health and appreciate the relationships and trust that I’ve built with them over the years. Everyone in our office cares a lot about what we do and are committed to doing the best we can.

I have two children, Kendrick and Chloe. We like to travel to beach destinations and visit family in France and travel Europe when we get the chance. We also love to cook as a family—the kids are learning to bake because they have a sweet tooth! We like to take family bike rides and go on nature walks, read, and support the performing arts. Both children participate in cultural dances with a Vietnamese dance troupe!


Lori

Lori

Registered Dental Hygienist

I joined Dr. Nomi’s team in August of 2004. I graduated from Eastern Washington University with a BS in dental hygiene, and have been practicing for more 20 years. Whether I’m helping administer anesthesia or performing periodontal care, I always have my patients’ comfort at the forefront of my mind. I enjoy working with patients on a long-term basis, and helping them attain their best possible dental health while getting to know them and watch their families grow up. It is a great privilege to work with Dr. Nomi. He is a very genuine person and a talented dentist who provides us with all the highest quality equipment we need to be on the cutting-edge.

I have lived in Redmond for 12 years and enjoy the water and the beauty here. I spend my free time with my significant other Stan, just enjoying life and traveling when we can. Salmon fishing is our favorite activity!


Thuy

Thuy

Registered Dental Hygienist

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene from Eastern Washington University in 1997 and have been with Bridle Trails Dentistry since 2001. As a hygienist, it is my goal to help patients reach their health goals by developing, maintaining, and improving oral care and knowledge. We have a wonderful, progressive office that stays current with the newest information, guidelines, and technology, allowing us to offer our patients the best, most up-to-date dental care.

I lived in Spokane before moving to Seattle. I am bilingual, speaking both English and Vietnamese. My free time is spent hiking, skiing, and traveling.


Connie

Connie

Certified/ Registered Dental Assistant   

I began my dental assisting career in 1968 and just finishing celebrating my 46th year! In 2001, after a year of working in the UW School of Dentistry Restorative Clinic, I came to Dr. Nomi’s office as a full-time Certified Dental Assistant. I love working with our patients! I enjoy helping them achieve and maintain optimal dental health in a caring and comfortable atmosphere. Dr. Nomi is great to work with as well. He’s provided us with the privilege of participating in international dental mission trips, a truly eye-opening and deepening experience.

I am originally from Montana but moved to Seattle in 2001 to be closer to my kids. One still lives here and is an instructor at a local college. The other is a software engineer and lives/works in Stockholm, Sweden, which provides us with a great reason to travel! A big love in my life is Calvin, a 22-pound tabby cat who is nearly 19 years old! When I find a little time for myself, I enjoy swim aerobics, knitting, sewing, and reading.


Kalee

Kalee

Certified/Registered Dental Assistant

I attended Renton Technical College and graduated in 2008 as a Certified/Registered Dental Assistant. I've worked in general dentistry ever since and joined Bridle Trails Dentistry in 2008. I work with Dr. Nomi during all dental procedures. I ensure that all patients are comfortable during procedures and have quality dental visits. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and helping them establish a healthy, beautiful smile.

I live in West Seattle with my Pug named Meko, who I'm obsessed with. I am originally from Enumclaw, WA and grew up on a farm, so naturally I am an animal lover! In my free time, I enjoy hot yoga, rock climbing, horseback riding, and golfing.


Elizabeth

Petra

Certified/Registered Dental Assistant

I graduated from Dental Assisting in southern California in 2008.  I worked there for my family dentist before moving to Washington state.  I joined Bridle Trails Dentistry in October 2015.  I work in all parts of general dentistry and assist Dr. Nomi in various procedures.  I've only been here a little while but everyone is friendly, kind and works together to provide the best care for our patients.

I am new to Washington moving here from the San Diego area.  I enjoy hiking and exploring the outdoors.  I also enjoy crocheting and reading fantasy novels.

I have family who own a dairy farm so on my days off I tend to be there helping with the feeding calves and moving heifers and various other farm jobs.
