Claudia Gonzalez

Front Office Manager

Claudia started as a receptionist in a dental office, and fell in love with everything about the dental field. She saw how it can be life-changing in both how patients feel about themselves as well as how they interact with others. She takes great pride in the quality of care provided in our office. We all work together as a team for the same goal: to make our patients’ experience enjoyable and educational, and making sure every patient receives the care they deserve. Claudia loves being able to help patients get the most out of their dental insurances, as well as helping those that don’t have insurance get the treatment they need. She has a passion for helping others and feels very fortunate to be able to do that each and everyday. She was born and raised in Washington State, and currently lives in Tacoma with her husband and 3-year-old daughter. In her spare time she enjoys being outdoors, spending time with her family, and shopping.
