I love the energy and enthusiasm our patients bring to the office. It’s so interesting to hear about all the different activities they are involved in, from sports to dance, to speech and debate. Their lives are full of excitement!
I was glad to join Dr. Michael Stebbins and the rest of the Stebbins Orthodontics team in 2010. Our team is made up of some of the most caring people I know. They’re always truly interested in knowing our family of patients, and ensuring they have an exceptional orthodontic experience. I look forward to celebrating the gift of a smile with our team and our patients for many years to come.
Education and experience
I was born in South Korea and moved to Iowa when I was a year old. We eventually moved to Washington State, where my parents found new jobs. I attended the University of Washington and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in international studies and biochemistry and a minor in chemistry.
While at UW, many of my hours were spent as a student leader with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and as a campus staff member. With an acceptance letter to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, I headed east to Boston.
While working toward my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in Boston, I was active with the Alpha Omega dental fraternity, and participated in events such as Tooth Day at Fenway and free dental screenings at the Special Olympics. During my senior year at Tufts, I spent time working at St. Joseph Hospital Pediatric Dental Center in Providence, Rhode Island, graduated summa cum laude, and was inducted into the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
Following my dental education, I decided to specialize in the field of orthodontics, and attended the University of Colorado, where I served as president of my class and received my certificate in orthodontics and a Master of Science in dentistry.

Outside the Office
I enjoy traveling and have served on short-term missions in Malaysia and China. In my leisure hours, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing and watching almost any sport (especially pickelball), increasing my knowledge of trivia, and sharing the deliciousness of Korean cuisine.
I have three children: a Boston-baked bean, Ella; a mile-high mountain man, Jon Tae; and a local Kalispell kid, Keenan. I feel truly blessed to be able to raise children in such a wonderful community. If you see us out and about town, feel free to say hello. We always enjoy meeting people!
