Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary, Certified Dental Assistant

Barb graduated from the South Puget Sound Community College dental assistant program in 1989 and started her career with Dr. Hutchinson shortly after. She returned to South Puget Sound in 2014 to further her dental assisting career and graduated in September 2014 with her certificate as an expanded function dental auxiliary. With that certificate, she is now licensed to place fillings in the state of Washington. We are very honored and proud to have her; roughly three percent of dental assistants in Washington state have earned this achievement. She is a huge asset to our team and has the most upbeat, positive attitude! She has a way of making anyone feel comfortable.

Barb is married with two sons and has three grandchildren with whom she enjoys spending her time.

“Thanks to Dr. Hutchinson for allowing me this great opportunity to enrich my career and help provide quality dental care to our patients. I am truly blessed with amazing coworkers and the best patients in town!”


Practice Manager

Sarah was born and raised in Olympia and graduated from North Thurston High School in 2005. She lived in Bellingham for several years before deciding to move back home and start a family. Sarah has been a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers since 2011 and spends a lot of her time in continuing education courses. Sarah keeps our practice focused on running smoothly and keeping patients happy. Our office wouldn’t be the same without her.

Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband Omar and their daughter Maia. She likes to roll out the grill on sunny days and always loves a good wine-tasting event! She dreams of one day traveling around the world.

“I love building relationships and really enjoy chatting with patients every time they come in; it is my goal to make patients feel at home in our office. I’m very thankful to have such a great team and doctor with whom I can share this love.”


Front Office Coordinator

Ariel graduated from the South Puget Sound dental assistant program in 2001. She worked as an assistant for a short time before moving to office administration, where she has been ever since. She greets all our patients with a friendly, caring smile and is always more than happy to help a patient whenever she can.

Ariel was born and raised in Olympia, where she married her husband Steve in 2004. She enjoys taking dance classes and spending time with her friends and family.

“I love being able to get to know each of our patients and their families and I look forward to seeing them at each of their visits.”


Registered Dental Hygienist

Becky provides preventive dental services, educates patients on dental and overall health, and explains individual treatments and options. She graduated from Pierce Community College in 2009 and received her bachelor’s degree from Eastern in 2011. Patient comfort and satisfaction is her primary goal, while always striving to provide the absolute best dental care possible. Becky shares the same level of professionalism and compassion with our team, and it shows to everyone who enters our office.

Becky was born and raised in Washington, and is very fortunate to have settled in Olympia. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter. They love playing outside with their dog, going camping, traveling, and exploring new places!

“I am focused on patient care and love not only educating patients, but finding the best individualized treatment options for each person.”


Registered Dental Hygienist

Sarah graduated from Gilford Technical Community College in 2004. For the past ten years, she has worked as a temp in several offices, but finally settled down with our team in 2015. Sarah works with patients to help them achieve oral health through gentle, yet thorough, cleanings. In her opinion, our office has the most genuine and healthy environment of anywhere she’s worked. We’d like to think it’s because we truly care about one another, as well as our patients.

In her free time, Sarah enjoys metalsmithing and photography. She even went back to school after completing her hygiene degree to learn more about the arts. She also loves sewing and music.

“My favorite part is getting to know my patients. I hope to not only teach them, but also learn a little from them as well. I enjoy providing a safe and comfortable environment for each of my patients.”
