Donna, Registered Dental Hygienist
I became involved with dentistry in 1999. The field grabbed my interest immediately, beginning with insurance/front office work. I then progressed to a dental assistant, and finally a dental hygienist which I have been for 14 years now. Olympic View Dental is a fun and professional environment where patients receive outstanding dental care. All of our employees are dedicated to providing exceptional individualized treatment in a safe and comfortable manner. Being a dental hygienist means that I get to educate my patients and care for their oral needs. Building a trusting rapport by listening and being sensitive to each and every patient’s specific needs is very important to me. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, golfing, hiking, skiing and partaking in the many outdoor activities our area has to enjoy.
Meagan, Registered Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Columbia Basin Dental Hygiene School in 2014 and have been working for Dr. Chilton for 4 years. Although fairly new to the hygiene position, I have worked at Olympic View Dental as a sterilization technician on and off for the past 8 years and I couldn’t ask for a better office to work at. Having the opportunity to help patients reach their dental goals and building trusting relationships along the way gives me pride in my work. I enjoy coming to work every day and I love what I do! Our team strives to provide our patients with the best care and I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of it.
Corinne, Registered Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field for 13 years and 12 of those have been working side by side with Dr. Chilton. I have to say that every year gets better and better. As a dental assistant I try to make each and every one of our patients feel comfortable and surrounded by trust in any given situation. What I love most about Olympic View Dental is; we are not your normal dental office; we are more like a family. My favorite thing about dentistry is giving people the confidence to smile. I am a very caring and personable dental assistant and feel that my patients’ really connect with that. Outside of work, I love spending time with my nieces and nephew, traveling, snowboarding and playing golf.

Maricella, Registered Dental Assistant, Certified Dental Assistant, Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary
I have been a dental assistant since 2000 and started my career with Dr. Chilton in 2001. Working at Olympic View Dental has been a great learning and gratifying experience. Through the years and with the guidance of Dr. Chilton, I have expanded my knowledge in all aspects of general dentistry with my areas of expertise being in TMJ splint therapy, occlusion (how the teeth come together), and cosmetic provisionals for our patients that want to do full mouth reconstruction. In 2015-2016 I decided to take my career a step further and achieved my certification to be a licensed Expanded Functional Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) which allows me the great opportunity to have hands on with placing fillings on patients and aiding Dr. Chilton in superior patient care. I thoroughly enjoy my career and helping patients achieve their dental goals, as well as seeing their new smile change their lives. During my time off of work I enjoy being with my three children Antonio, DeAngelo and Valencia. I look forward to meeting all of you soon!
Carrie, Office Manager
I have been in the dental field since 1993. A smile says a million words and is one of the first characteristics I notice in a person. At Olympic View Dental, our patients always leave with a smile on their faces. We are a fun, outgoing office and work very hard to have outstanding patient rapport. As the Office Manager and Registered Dental Assistant, I have the opportunity to work with each patient in a very personable way. The patients at Olympic View Dental are what make my job an exceptional place to work! When I’m not working, I love spending time with my husband Beau and my three children; Jaiden, Cailin and Keira.
Sally, Insurance Coordinator
I have worked at Olympic View Dental as the Insurance Coordinator since 2001, and have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many of you over the years. During that time, I have been dedicated to working with all of our patients and their insurance companies in order to get the maximum amount of insurance coverage possible for all of their dental needs. As we all know, the world of insurance can be a very complex one, and it has been my pleasure assisting many of our patients navigate through the vast choices and information that is out there. Our goal at Olympic View Dental is to assist our patients in visualizing and achieving the most beautiful and healthy smile as possible, and to utilize their insurances benefits to the fullest. I feel very fortunate to be a part of such an exceptional team of dental professionals, and I look forward to working with all of you in the years to come.
I’ve been the office bookkeeper since 2014. My dental career started over forty years ago as a dental assistant. Over the years I have held jobs as the scheduler, insurance coordinator and office manager. Then twenty years ago I added bookkeeping to my experiences. Five years ago I had the opportunity to go back to school for accounting which expanded my education. Working for Dr. Chilton has been a joy because he is such a talented dentist with a great staff. Dentistry has given me the chance to meet great people who have become friends. It’s like having a huge extended family where you get to catch up with their lives each time you see each other.
