Chris- Office Manager
I have worked in dentistry for over 40 years, and spent the last 32 years in this office. I enjoy helping our patients with their insurance questions and scheduling their appointments. One of my favorite parts of our office is getting to know many of our patients. I have known several for over 32 years and count them as my friends! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two grandsons. I like to escape the rain and travel to warm places like Mexico and the Caribbean!
Kathy- Front Office/Dental Assistant
I started working for Dr. Wagar in 2016, and I’ve spent the last 18 years as a dental and orthodontic assistant. I feel fortunate to work in such a friendly office environment! You will see me assisting Dr. Wagar or up at the front desk scheduling your appointments. I live here in Renton and enjoy being a part of the community. I love spending time with my family, friends, and dog!
Shelly – Front Office
I have been in the dental field for 14 years, and have been with the Benson Hill Smiles team since 2018. My goal is to make sure our patients have a positive experience in our office. I’m truly grateful to work with such an amazing and knowledgeable team! Outside the office I enjoy family gatherings, getaways to Arizona, and road trips to new places!
Stacy – Dental Assistant
I’ve been working in dentistry for over 22 years, and in this office since 2018. I have a very outgoing and bubbly personality, and really enjoy providing our patients with a comfortable and personalized visit. Outside the office I enjoy golfing, wine tasting, concerts, and spending time with my husband Paul. I also really enjoy animals, and often dog sit for clients on the weekends!
Brenda- Dental Hygienist
I’ve worked at Benson Hill Smiles since 2002, and I really enjoy the relationships I’ve built with our patients. I enjoy working with our experienced team and the technology we have in the office to help provide the best care for our patients. I’m married and have two boys. In my spare time I like to cook and hike.
Yen- Dental Hygienist
I’ve been a part of the team since 2009. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and building lasting relationships.
