Barbara - Woodland Trails Dentistry


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 four 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!”
