Devorie Duclos, CDA        Front Desk

I have a pleasure of interacting with our wonderful patients as they come through the front door. I am here to offer a friendly face and a helpful hand throughout the entire process. My favorite part of my job is the privilege to meet and begin to know their stories. I feel fortunate to be given the opportunity to work with the most compassionate dentist for the last 6 years of my 10 year career. I started out as a dental assistant and now have moved on to be Dr. Hsu’s office manager. My goal is to always put the patient at ease, to know they are in a place they can trust, and think of me as a friend. My hope is that our patients can come to know us as we are: a group of caring individuals who strive to do our best. My hobbies include camping with my 2 children, watching the Seahawk games, going to movies, playing acoustic guitar, and traveling.

Jenny Gallaher RDH        Dental Hygienist

I am originally from Illinois and moved to the Seattle area in the early 1990's to be closer to family. I have been licensed in all aspects of Dental Hygiene including Expanded Functions since 1992 in the State of WA. While living in Chicago I completed my Certificate in Dental Hygiene at Northwestern University Dental School (NUDS) and then graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Anthropology. I later spent four years on faculty at NUDS as Periodontal Project Coordinator.

Staying current with the latest techniques is a constant goal of mine. By having a wide range of experiences in the career of Dental Hygiene, I hope to assist patients in achieving the dental health that they desire. I believe that by being a good listener and caring health care provider I can help make a visit to Dr. Hsu’s dental office as comfortable as possible.

Outside of work I enjoy friends, family, photography, music and my two parrots - Jasper and Bonnie.
