Meet the Kenmore Team
Debbie, Office Manager
Debbie started at our practice in 1993. As our office manager, she helps us coordinate care for patients. She is dedicated to listening to the oral health dreams our patients have and wants to help them get the most from their insurance benefits. She values Dr. Taba’s friendly, caring spirit and the way he strives to make every patient feel like part of our extended family. She loves the rest of our team as well, both the professionalism on display every day and the laughter and fun they share together.
Debbie has three children and loves spending time with her family with special sporting activities and events, like camping.
Adisa, Dental Hygienist
As our Kenmore office’s dental hygienist, Adisa helps us create healthy, beautiful smiles with thorough dental cleanings. Originally from Bosnia, she moved to the US in 1997. She is currently completing her bachelors of science at the Oregon Institute of Technology. She appreciates our office’s balance of fun and professionalism, and she enjoys getting to meet new patients. Like the rest of our team, she wants everyone who comes to us for care to feel like a part of our extended family.
When she’s not helping us create healthy smiles, Adisa enjoys snowboarding, hiking, and scrapbooking.
Marissa, Scheduling Coordinator
Marissa joined our team in 2008. As a schedule coordinator, she’s a big asset at our front desk and behind the scenes. Marissa loves helping people and is an instrumental part of the office. With her friendly smile and warm personality, she helps our patients feel comfortable and welcome.
Outside of the office, Marissa enjoys yoga and gluten-free baking.
Becky, Dental Assistant
When you come to our Kenmore dental office, you’ll find Becky working side-by-side with Dr. Taba and Adisa to deliver exceptional care to our patients. She’s been a dental assistant with us since 2002. She previously completed the dental assisting program at Sno-Isle TECH Skill Center, where she developed her knowledge and expertise. Becky also demonstrates a caring, professional attitude as she helps us administer care. She loves helping our patients feel comfortable while they’re sitting in our dental chair.
In her spare time, Becky loves watching her four boys play sports. She also loves to bake and cook for them.
Colleen, Dental Assistant
Colleen joined our office in 2013, bringing with her more than 20 years of experience as a dental assistant. She is a welcome part of our family as she helps Dr. Taba and Adisa administer care. She loves to help where help is needed and is a true team player; like everyone else on our team, she complements and supports us in what we do in very important ways.
Colleen has a number of hobbies she enjoys, including gardening and flower arranging, golfing, biking, hiking, and both volunteering with her church and working with young people.
Melissa, Dental Hygienist
Melissa first started at our practice in 2006, and she has over eleven years of experience working closely with teeth and gums. She received her education from both Vancouver Community College and Western Washington University. She loves working alongside the other team members, who are just like family, as well as helping patients and teaching them valuable prevention techniques when it comes to caring for their smile.
When she isn’t at the office, Melissa enjoys traveling, boating, reading, and spending time with her family.
