Linda Judge | Appointment Administrator
I look forward to welcoming you to our office. We have a fun, relaxed environment. Dr. Welling is down to earth and never rushes a treatment. I love working for him and with our staff. They are committed to the same thing, providing the best dental care for you. I cannot wait to meet you and hear your story. I speak fluent Spanish and will make sure you are smiling from day one with us.
I love my incredible family. I am married to a wonderful man, have three children, and Pugs. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, shopping, camping, and collecting Disney snow globes and Fiestaware.
Pat English | Hygienist
Our patients make our office interesting and my work enjoyable. I like to get to know people on a personal basis- their interests, hobbies, professions, and whatever else is important to them. We have designed our office to be fun and inviting. It is staffed by true professionals committed to providing superior smiles.
I am happily married to Patty, my wife and have four amazing children, Elan, Jill, Tommie, and Seth. I am active with the Boy Scouts and love being able to explore the Olympic Mountains with them. Music has always been a huge part of my life, whether it is playing drums for local musicals, Big Bands, rock groups or jazz combos, or singing lead with the Kitsap Chordsmen Barbershop Chorus and quartet. I also enjoy cooking for my family and I make a killer sweet & sour chicken and Greek Pizza.
Jan Carver | Dental Assistant
I love working with our great staff of talented dental professionals and enjoy our fun and interesting patients. Making you comfortable during your appointment is a priority for me. I love that Dr. Welling truly cares what treatment is in your best interest and will help you achieve the amazing smile you want.
I grew up in Kansas, graduated from Kansas State University, married Dave and after numerous years in the Navy we ended our Navy career in this beautiful Northwest town of Poulsbo. We have three children and two grandchildren. I enjoy so many things the Pacific Northwest has to offer from hiking, camping, kayaking and beach watching, that my weekends are always filled with something to do.
Pam Gartner | Dental Assistant
I love meeting and seeing new patients in our office. I enjoy getting to know our patients to help make them feel comfortable. I will answer all questions and make sure each patient understands his or her treatment inside and out before beginning their procedure. I am good at helping patients overcome any anxieties. My reward is seeing a patient that may have experienced anxiety in the past, return with a smile on their face.
My family is very important to me. I have two sons, a daughter-in-law, and a wonderful grandson. I enjoy different hobbies such as mosaics, glass fusing, guitar and some sailing. I especially enjoy Blues music and attend festivals at Mt. Baker. I enjoy traveling, but I mostly travel to Florida to visit with my siblings and mother. I have recently flown a Cessna 150 plane under the guidance of a great friend. Life is an adventure.
LeAnne Richards | Insurance Administrator
I can honestly say that I look forward to coming to work each day. Our office is friendly and all the staff is outgoing. We love to have fun and find any excuse we can to celebrate such as Pi Day (3.14 or March 14), National Doughnut Day, Mardi Gras, and Halloween. I love meeting new people and helping them understand and take advantage of their insurance benefits. I always tell our patients how great our doctor is. He is honest and always does what is best for our patients.
I am happily married to my husband Scott. I have three children, Brielle, Trent, and Hailee, and three adorable grandchildren. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cycling, cooking, playing the piano, and laughing.
Melody Channell | Hygienist
It has been great working here. The office is full of fun and laughter. Rendering the best care to our patients is one of our highest values. Dr. Welling is a great dentist ensuring quality care to all of the patients. The front desk staff, Linda and LeAnne, keep us busy and on our toes. Having Pat as a Hygiene partner has been great. He constantly reminds me not to whistle while I work. The assistants, Jan and Pam, are ready to help in any way needed. Working with this office makes coming to work easy.
I have been married for over thirty years to my best friend. We have three adult children that are married. We love spending time together whenever we have the opportunity. We have two adorable granddaughters and two step-grandsons. I also enjoy walking, traveling and taking scenic photographs.
