Diana

Dental Hygienist

The joy of dental hygiene is delivering quality oral health education and care to patients and their families. I graduated college in 1993 and have a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Institute of Technology. With over 20 years experience in private practice, the public health sector and through volunteer opportunities, I have learned that success comes one patient at a time; it’s about listening, respect, commitment and a gentle touch.

I have been practicing with Dr. Eric Yaremko since March 2014. I remain excited about the art and science of oral health. Most importantly, I look forward to listening and learning from patients.

My family and I now live in Bellingham and part-time on Lummi Island. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, gardening and quilting, as well as boating, hiking, and keeping my children on a straight and solid trajectory. I have two grown daughters and a son in high school.

Lynda

Office Manager

I am the friendly voice over the phone and the first smiling face you will see when you enter our door. I have worked in dentistry for 18 years, with the last 2.5 years at Eric Yaremko DMD, PS. My goal is to provide excellent customer service with compassion and enthusiasm.

I am very passionate about being a patient advocate. Building personal relationships with patients is also very important to me. There’s nothing like the satisfying look on a patient’s face when they’ve navigated the confusing world of insurance, financing, and the unknown of treatment, to come out the other end with an even bigger smile. I have seen firsthand how dentistry can change a patient’s smile and transform their lives. I have a husband, son, and the best little gray and white cat on this planet!

Lead Assistant

I have worked as a Dental Assistant with Dr. Eric Yaremko since graduating from Bellingham Technical College in 2014. I received my AAS degree as a Certified Dental Assistant. I love coming to work to the smiling faces of everyone on our team. It is great spending my days working with such kind and caring staff. I adore my profession and feel the best part of my job is giving our patients the most relaxing and comfortable experience along with exceptional dental care. I am passionate about helping patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have a beautiful seven year old daughter. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with family and friends, the outdoors, working around my home and watching my daughter play sports.

Dana

Dental Assistant

After attending a Dental Assisting College in Seattle, WA,  I began my Assisting career in Kirkland, WA.   I have worked for several dental offices which included an Oral Surgery practice and six years at the University of Washington Hospital Dental Clinic.  This is where I met Eric Yaremko, whom I later married.  After raising our two daughters, I went back to work as an Assistant in our office.

My job description varies:  I assist chair side, work as the lab technician and assist the office in any way I can. I work with a great staff and constantly learn new things every day.

In my spare time I enjoy skiing, horseback riding, sailing and reading.

Alex

Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Ferndale, Washington.  After graduating high school I enrolled at Bellingham Technical College where I received my A.A.S. as a Certified Dental Assistant in 2015.    I began working for Dr. Yaremko in May of 2017 and I can honestly say I have never been happier.

There are numerous reasons I love working for Dr. Yaremko.  Our office always provides amazing patient care, and I enjoy being part of a team that strives to make sure our patients have a positive dental experience.   Patients come first and its rewarding that I am able to help patients feel comfortable while at our office.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with my grandma. I have two dogs, Cleo and Knugget, a goat named Cowboy, a snake named Reptar, and most importantly a llama named Llouie.
