Our veterinary dental assistants are experienced and committed to caring for your pets as well as providing you all of the information you need regarding your pet's procedure or post operative care instructions.
Holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Biology from the University of Delaware, Lucia came to us in 2013 with a variety of animal experience under her belt. Wanting to pursue the more technical side of veterinary medicine, Lucia continues to grow her skills and knowledge as a surgery assistant, treatment assistant, care coordinator, and more.
Lucia’s passion for the field comes from being a patient advocate and partnering with our clients to improve our patients’ lives. She and her kitties, Miles and Toby, lay claim to the best cat tooth brushing method ever, which has evolved into them begging for their nightly routine and holding their lips up for her to reach!
As a Washington State University graduate with a BS in Zoology, continuing in the field of veterinary medicine was an easy choice. Having worked in the field since 2005, Kim has held a variety of positions including work at a mixed practice and at the WSU School of Veterinary Medicine in the anesthesia department.
With Kim, our patients are in good hands. Her favorite aspect of being part of Dr. Matson’s dentistry team is seeing so many patients’ lives change for the better. At home, Kim is an accomplished seamstress and quilter and enjoys camping and hiking with her two dogs, Sadie and Damon.
