Meet Our Team



Lori has been with the practice for over 18 years and has been working in dental care for over 30 years. She enjoys becoming friends with each of our patients, as well as working with our great team. When patients come into our office, she helps explain and work out their financial concerns, helping them know the benefits of each treatment and making them feel comfortable at our office. Every day, she shows her passion for customer care and patient advocacy.

When not in the office, Lori loves to spend time with her family, as well as to cook and bake. She is especially famous for her Lori-O’s recipe.



Maria has been in the dental field since 2010. Her main role is to welcome the hygiene patients and get them ready for their cleanings. However, she is affectionately known as “the Swiss Army knife,” as she is able to fill in the gaps when needed in other areas around the office.

At home, she enjoys her three rambunctious boys that keep her busy!



Bryanna has been working in dentistry since 2013. She has had a lot of experience in prosthodontic work as well as general dentistry! Her knowledge is a big asset to our team. She brings a lot of comfort to our patients when they are anxious.

At home, she plays with her Doberman, Wayne, and supports her husband in his sports!



For over 20 years, Tanya has been helping and educating patients at Whiteridge Aesthetic Dentistry. She loves seeing patients come in and being able to make friends with them as they return every year. Tanya was able to attend hygiene school at Weber State University. She built up her career by working with Dr. Chikaraishi and is excited to work with our new dentists, Dr. Hepworth and Dr. Sherman.

At home, Tanya loves spending time with, and spoiling, her grandkids.



Lynnette is our amazing lead assistant, and since 1986, she has been serving patients chairside! Twenty years ago, Lynnette and Lori first worked together. Today are back at it again, using their combined knowledge to help patients feel more comfortable and to understand their dental needs.

Lynnette has two kids and one grandchild. She enjoys hiking, quilting and camping.

Pam King


Pam graduated from Weber State College in 1978. She has over 44 years of experience as a dental hygienist. Pam loves spending time with her fun family of 3 kids and 7 grandchildren. They certainly keep her busy and are the best part of her life. Pam has been able to practice dentistry over the years by balancing life between family, work and lots of play. She enjoys working and educating her patients about oral hygiene and provides motivation for them to keep their teeth as long as possible. Pam enjoys her relationships with our patients and has grown to really care for them and their families. “I have had the privilege of working for some great dentists and feel lucky and blessed to end my career by working with two of the best dentists ever!!”.
