Molly

staff member

Office Manager

I have worked together with Sherry in the front office for 25 years. Our mutual goal is to make certain our patients are taken care of in a friendly, professional manner from the first phone call to the completion of their dental needs. I enjoy interacting with our patients and getting to know them. I value the friendships that I’ve made with my co-workers and the team spirit everyone brings to the practice.

I married my husband Daryl in 1975. We have raised six children and now have eight grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.

Appointment Administrator

I've worked in this office since 1989. I enjoy getting to know our new patients and seeing our returning patients that have been part of our practice for many years. Working at the front desk, I love seeing our caring staff put smiles on our nervous patients who need a little extra TLC.

I have been married for 42 years and have two children and seven grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with family, gardening, and watching my grandchildren play sports.

Catherine “Cat”

staff member

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been practicing as a dental hygienist since 1998. I have a true appreciation for education and consider myself a preventive health care professional. I enjoy educating my patients about the relationship between good oral health and overall health.

I am married to a wonderful man, Will, and the only children we have are our dog Sunshine and cat Zoe. I am also a “Tooth Fairy” clown named Flossy with Caring Clowns International. This organization does clowning to raise money for all kinds of charities that enhance children's lives.

Judy

staff member

Registered Dental Hygienist

I provide education, preventive care, and periodontal therapeutic care with a warm and welcoming attitude. I joined our office in 2004 after having worked more than 25 years in the dental field in a variety of capacities. I enjoy getting to know my patients, educating them, and seeing positive outcomes of treatment. I love working together with the rest of our team to provide care for generations of families.

At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and college-aged kids. I also like to hike, run, go boating, and read.

staff member

Dental Assistant

Working as a dental assistant allows me to directly help people look and feel better. I also enjoy working with the staff here at Dr. Thacker’s office, as everyone plays an important role in our patients’ health. I appreciate working with Dr. Thacker as well; his professional attitude and detail-oriented nature makes the office a great place to work.

In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities with my husband and our dog, such as fishing, hiking, and boating. We also spend a lot of time with our families.

Dental Assistant                                                         

I love being a dental assistant, especially at Dr. Thacker's office. I love the staff I work with and really enjoy our patients as well. My main goal as a dental assistant is to make patients feel very comfortable and to provide the best care possible.

I was born in Patuxent River, MD and raised all over the country, moving amongst different naval bases. My family and I have been here in the Pacific Northwest since 2002. In my free time, I enjoy going to the movies, spending as much time with my nephew, and traveling with my sister to watch her play soccer.

Dental Assistant                                                         

I have been working for Dr. Thacker since March 2016. I am the newest person on our team. I love working with Dr. Thacker and the staff here at Appletree Cove Dental. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them feel comfortable in the office. I have continued my education, graduating from Olympic College, and am now finishing prerequisites so I can apply to dental hygiene school. 

I have resided in Kingston for 21 years and love this community. I could not imagine being anywhere else! When I'm not studying, I enjoy music, being active, and spending time with my husband, Brandon.
