We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.

We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Dental Assistant

I am proud to be a member of such an exceptional dental practice for more than 20 years. During my 40+ years in the dental field, I have seen many wonderful clinical and technological advances that make dentistry more comfortable for patients. Dr. McDevitt’s practice offers state-of-the-art dental care for the entire family.

Dental anxiety often prevents patients from getting the treatment they need. Our office provides care and understanding about these fears, and offers sedation dentistry that allows treatment to be completed with little or no memory of the appointment. Many of our patients love this experience.

Away from the office, I enjoy blues and jazz music with Darryl, gardening, and spending time with my daughters, Michelle and Ashleigh, and their families.

Dental Hygienist

I started working with the previous dental practice here in 1978. In 1998, I transitioned to Dr. Shawn McDevitt’s team after he bought the practice. In addition to providing care in private practice, I have also been a clinical instructor at the Yakima Valley College dental hygiene clinic since 1977.

Any chance I get, I can be found lugging my suitcase through an airport, train, or bus station in pursuit of adventure at a domestic or foreign destination.

Sterilization Technician/Assistant

I serve as a Sterilization Technician/Assistant, and my responsibilities encompass a crucial role in maintaining a smooth and efficient dental practice. My daily duties involve assisting Dr. McDevitt and the team of hygienists with various dental procedures, ensuring the cleanliness and sterility of instruments, and swiftly turning over treatment rooms between clients. Although I'm relatively new to the dental field, I approach my work with enthusiasm and a commitment to gaining valuable experience as I work towards my goal of attending hygiene school. My dedication to my role contributes significantly to the seamless operation of our practice.

What I find most gratifying in my role is the opportunity to meet new people and assist them with their dental needs. My passion for helping others, combined with my friendly and welcoming demeanor, makes me a valuable asset to our practice. I take immense satisfaction in being a part of Dr. McDevitt's team, where positivity and a shared commitment to client care and professional growth prevail. My colleagues are not only dedicated to serving clients but also enthusiastic about mentoring and supporting me as I learn about all aspects of dentistry.

Outside of my professional life, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, along with my beloved dogs. I have a deep love for the outdoors and embrace activities such as skiing as a way to connect with nature and unwind.
