About Our Amazing Staff
Ana – office management
I love everything about dentistry, but most of all I love the one-on-one care I am able to give to our patients; there is nothing more rewarding to me than knowing I am able to make a difference in someone’s life. In my spare time, I love to spend time with friends and family, attend church every Sunday, serve the community, but most importantly I love spending quality time… with my husband and children. Though I am proud of my career, my greatest accomplishment is my family. I work with money rather than molars. By assisting patients with financial planning ,I’m also helping them take care of their oral health.
Furthermore, I also enjoy many other things in life such as dancing, hiking, and cooking.
Angela – dental assistant
My name is Angela Schulz. I have been involved in dentistry as a dental assistant since 2000 when I began my education with Lake Washington Technical Collage. I have always loved caring for people and their oral health needs. Whether it is feeling comfortable enough to get that filling done, or answering questions about a dental procedure they may need, I want to always help make the experience a good one.
Being a dental assistant challenges me and brings me great joy at the same time.
I am a mom to four young children, ages 6,4,2 and 3 months. When I am not chasing them around, I look for time to get outside and run. I also enjoy reading, cooking, hiking and being with my wonderful friends. I am so thankful to be working at A Smiling Heart Dentistry with this amazing staff and look forward to meeting you soon.
Colleen – hygienist
Hello everyone! I have been a registered dental hygienist since 1999, and I absolutely love my profession! My favorite part of my job is educating people and helping them achieve optimal oral health. One of the things that I admire most about Dr. Tigran is his high attention to detail. He aims for perfection, not just with his work, but also with making our patients’ experience the best one possible. We have a friendly and cohesive staff where everyone takes pride in their work.
In my personal time, I like to spend time with my kids, exercise, read, and take classes at night. I also enjoy movies, going on day hikes, and watching Mariners games. I look forward to seeing you soon!
Era – hygienist
Hello my name is Era. I moved to United States in 1996 and have obtained my dental education from Shoreline Community Collage Dental Hygiene Program. I enjoy working with patients of all ages and my favorite thing about being a Dental Hygienist is motivating my patients to obtain optimal dental health through individualized care and education. It is rewarding for me to provide continual dental care while having the opportunity to know my patients over the years.
I am proud to work for A Smiling Heart Dentistry, together as a team we strive to give the best in service and support in our field, and to make difference in the lives of the people we have treated. When I am not taking care of teeth, I most enjoy spending time with my family and friends, including my husband, and 2 beautiful daughters. I thank God everyday for everything I have in my life.
