PATTI

Office Manager

Dr. Brown, our team, and our awesome patients at Healthy Expressions Dental make every day a gratifying experience for me. Along with my daily responsibilities of making our office run smoothly and efficiently, I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of a unique, fun and amazing team that puts a patient’s individual care first. My husband Gil and I moved to the Colville area 20 years ago from Western Washington to raise our family. Our three children, Ridge, Ryder, and Kennedy give us so much to be thankful for. We couldn’t be any more proud to have the privilege of being parents to such incredible, intelligent, and athletic individuals. Our family loves to take full advantage of all that our beautiful area has to offer including camping, fishing, relaxing at the lake, hiking, skiing along with attending many sporting events. I treasure spending time with family and friends as they are my greatest gifts in life!

 

SANDY

Schedule Coordinator

In order for our patients to maintain a healthy and happy smile, they need to make an appointment at Healthy Expressions Dental. That’s where I come in! I try to schedule each appointment to be as convenient as possible. Dr. Brown has the biggest heart and he truly cares about each and every patient that walks in the door. The team I work with is outstanding in every way as well. Everyone is very knowledgeable and caring toward one another and our patients. I have two wonderful daughters who are involved in sports, which keeps me very busy traveling to all their games. We love to go boating and camping in the summer months. I enjoy entertaining, especially having friends and family over for dinner and playing cards and board games.

 

KEZIA

Front Office

In September of 2015 I was blessed with the opportunity to join the Healthy Expressions Dental team as an addition to the front office. Working as a barista for the past 14 years, I had no background in the dental field and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It has been an incredibly wonderful experience and I’ve learned so much! I’m happy to be a part of such an amazing team who truly puts each and every patient’s care first! 

I currently live in my hometown of Chewelah, WA, just south of Colville, where I am raising my two daughters, Natalie and Abigail. They are both very active in sports and theater, as well as many other extra-curricular activities that manage to keep us all very busy! 

 

BEKIE

Registered Dental Hygienist

My goal at each hygiene visit is to create a welcoming atmosphere where our patients can feel comfortable. I want your visit with us to feel one-of-a-kind and to make you feel like a member of our dental family. As a hygienist, I also have the opportunity to do fillings. I love seeing our patients’ faces light up after restoring a broken tooth so they can smile again. I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of the Healthy Expressions team! I grew up in Chewelah, and I am so excited that I get to stay so close to my family. My husband and I love to spend our weekends hiking, camping, and being active, and I am open to suggestions for amazing hiking trails nearby!

 

LORA

Registered Dental Hygienist

Since I was 15 I knew I wanted to be a dental hygienist. I knew I wanted to be in a profession that I could help people. I enjoy meeting new people and building trusting relationships with them. Friends and family is something I hold at the highest value. This year Ryan and I had our first child. A little girl. It has been so much fun being mommy and daddy and taking her for hikes in the beautiful Colville area. What a great place to raise a child and enjoy all the outdoor activities we love. Ryan and I love to snowshoe, snowboard, hike, fish and rock climb. Everyday is a new adventure and we couldn't be more grateful. 

 

HALEY

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, hope you are having a great day! Thanks for taking the time to learn about our dental team here at Healthy Expressions Dental. I joined Dr. Brown’s team in 2012. I am going on 11 years’ experience as a clinical dental hygienist after getting my bachelor’s degree at EWU in Dental Hygiene. I am from the Colville area and am pleased to be able to provide dental care to this community, of which includes a lot of my relatives and longtime friends. Other than working, I spend time with family, friends, my horses and other pets, and enjoy many outdoor activities.  
Recently, my husband and I became new parents of a sweet, beautiful, baby girl. She has given me a whole new look on life; it is definitely exciting to see the world through a child’s eyes and I love being a mother. My focus with my patients are to provide thorough, dental care and work with them to try to prevent gum, teeth and health problems from surfacing down the road. This a great office to work in that supports each other in caring for our patients.

JAMIE

Dental Assistant

I get to assist with Dr. Brown and Dr. Ricks as they help patients to have the best possible dental health they can provide. Although, I am a newer team member of Healthy Expressions Dental, I am beyond impressed with the doctor’s ability to put patients at ease with an easy sense of humor and caring approach to their patients concerns or dental fears. Our team is amazing and everyone is truly dedicated to making patients feel comfortable. 

I was born and raised here in Colville and my husband and I are now raising our two kids here as well. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, hiking, boating, reading and home improvements.
