Miss Missy

Insurance Coordinator

Although I was born in Colorado, I consider Washington to be my home state. My husband and I have three beautiful daughters. I enjoy being a wife, mother, sister, auntie, sister-in-law and friend. In my free time I like to do crafts, cook, finish projects around my house, organize, and plan fun events.  I thoroughly enjoy the challenges and rewards the dentistry industry provides me on a daily basis.

Miss Mia

Hello, my name is Mia. I am thankful to be a part of this wonderful team here at Renton Kids Dentistry. I love working with children because of the kindness and energy they bring in. I help out in my church’s Sunday school and have been on a missionary trip to Ukraine and this experience helped me realize my passion for working with children. I love singing and am a part of my church’s choir and sing in youth groups. I’m here to ensure you have a wonderful and memorable experience at our office.

Miss Josie

Dental Assistant

Hi my name is Josefina, but I go by Josie. As a teenager I didn’t like my smile, (even though my teeth weren’t bad) I just didn’t like it. It was then that I discovered that I wanted a career in the dental field, to be able to help children with the same insecurity as me. I attended Kaplan university and continued at Pima Medical institute where I graduated from as a Registered Dental Assistant. I recently was honored the opportunity to join the Renton Kids Dentistry team which is a plus because I love children and feel so lucky to be able to work with so many of them. Here at RKD we strive to make our little patients and their parents feel comfortable and at ease during their appointment and happy as they leave.

During my free time I find myself spending time with my children, friends and family. I also love to hike and cook.

Miss Yana Renton Kids Dentistry Renton WA

Miss Yana

Dental Assistant

I first discovered my passion for working with children while in nursing school. Over the last ten years, I’ve also volunteered as a teacher’s assistant in early childhood classes at different schools.

After spending those years working closely with children, I found myself truly enjoying caring, nurturing and guiding them. After graduating dental assisting school, I was fortunate to join Renton Kids Dentistry, a place where I immediately felt a connection and a unique sense of community among the families and staff.

While not at work, I enjoy traveling and have been fortunate enough to visit many amazing places. Besides hiking, spending time with my friends and exploring new restaurants, I find time to take Chinese at Bellevue College.
