Meet the Staff




Casey
Front Desk Manager

I came to Redmond Kids' Dentistry in June 2006, shortly after our grand opening, and have loved every minute of it! It has been such a joy watching our office flourish over the years. Prior to arriving at RKD, I worked in other dental offices for over 10 years. My favorite part about working at RKD is being able to talk to patients and their families. I enjoy being able to create a relationship with families which then makes our office feel like a second home.

Dr. Stephanie and Dr. Merchant generously serve their patients and strive for the utmost excellence in their patients' care everyday. It's truly an honor to be a part of the RKD team! I grew up in Northern California, but now reside in Redmond with my family. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, shopping, reading, and spending time with my husband, our two daughters, and our two dogs.

Erin
Office Manager

I have been working in dentistry for 18 years and joined the amazing team here at RKD in 2012. I started out on the clinical side and loved working with children from the very beginning. Helping kids to overcome their fears and challenges has been incredibly rewarding. I have migrated through the dental field to the administrative side and find great satisfaction in balance the needs of the patients with those of the practice.

What I love the most about working at RKD is that we laugh every single day!! In my free time I love to read, hike and explore the region and spend time with family, friends and my dog Lucy.

John
Dental Assistant & Marketing Manager

I am originally from Hawaii and have been here in Seattle for 12 years and have worked in the dental field for 10yrs. I worked at a general practice for 2yrs after graduating an RDA program at Pima Medical Institute.

I have been with Redmond Kids Dentistry since March 2008 and I absolutely love working with kids and my awesome :) personality makes it easy for me to interact with our patients making their dental visits so much fun!

Besides dentistry, I love to eat!!! :) I love to enjoy life, traveling and spend lots of time with my friends and family.

Staci
Dental Assistant & Tooth Fairy

Hi! I have been with Redmond Kids' Dentistry for about 2 years after finishing school. I have always had the passion to work in this field along with working with children. I enjoying working beside such an amazing group of co-workers and being able to provide excellent care for our patients.

I grew up in California and have lived in the Bellevue/Redmond area since I was 14. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my fiancé. Boating, traveling and the movies.

Vanessa
Dental & Administrative Assistant

I have been in the dental field for the last six years. A majority of that time has been spent working with children of all ages. I feel the best part about working in pediatric dentistry is building a solid foundation for kids overall oral hygiene health. I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in psychology, but decided to try something a little more hands on and fell in love with dental assisting.

When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with friends, hiking, going to the gym, and enjoying all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I am married and have an English bulldog named Stella.

Courtney
Dental & Administrative Assistant

Hey y'all! I am a transplant from Tennessee, but call Washington home. Growing up I came here for the summers to my grandparent's house. I knew this is where I wanted to live. I have a husband, 2 crazy boys, and a 100lb lapdog. We are a Seahawks and Redwings family. Game days are LOUD at our house with good food and fun. Needless to say, we love the fall and winter months. My husband is in the Coast Guard as a Mechanical Engineer, the oldest can build anything out of Legos and the youngest plays hockey for Sno-King.

I have been in the dental field 13 years, with the last 7 being here, at Redmond Kids' Dentistry. I have worked with kids my entire life, so it is fun for me. I love how satisfying it is to watch them grow through the years and to build great relationships with them and the parents.

Andrea
Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for 12 years, spending 10 of those years at Redmond Kids' Dentistry. Watching the patients and families grow is what I love the most about working here. It is very rewarding to see a patient come in as a young child and watch them grow into a young adult. I also enjoy working with each patient and his or her individual needs.

Being a Seattle native, it is always fun to share what the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I love traveling the world and exploring new areas, although I also enjoy staying local, and spending time with family and friends.

Dental & Administrative Assistant
