Helen—Office Manager

helen-bioI roam around the office a lot and love to spend time visiting with long-time patients and getting to know new patients. Watching generations come through our practice over the years has been a joy, and visiting with our patients is the highlight of my day. I enjoy putting all the special touches in our office to create a warm, inviting, comfortable atmosphere for patients. Decorating for special holidays is my favorite! Dr. George R. Hussey and I have been working hard as a team for all these years to develop a fabulous practice!

Dr. George R. Hussey and I have been married for 54 years. We have three grown children, six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and three dogs that are like our family. When I have free time I enjoy floral arranging and decorating, attending football games, vacationing, and serving in our church and the chamber of commerce.



I have been serving in the practice for 18 years. Big changes have come for me in 2018 following the birth of my son, Rhett. I have recently began a new position working from home as marketing coordinator. I have loved working with people and seeing a smile transformed into something truly beautiful. I will truly miss greeting patients on the phone or as they walk into the practice. I enjoy working for Dr. George R. Hussey, not only because he’s my father, but because he is a truly gifted dentist. I love working for someone who does quality dentistry and produces results that make our patients happy. He is so pleasant to his patients and team, loves what he does for a living, and takes pride in his work. Our team is like a big family, and you will often hear laughter coming from the office.

In my personal time, I spend my days playing with and caring for our son. I also keep busy with my other passion: photography. I enjoy family time,  shopping, vacationing, and attending church. I love everything about fall in Washington, which includes my love for the Seahawks and UW Husky football. Attending these games is among my favorite fall activities.

Janet—Financial Assistant

janet-bioI try to make each patient feel comfortable, get to know them, and help make their visits fun. It is also important for me to really listen to their needs. I love working with our great team of women and a great doctor. Dr. George R. Hussey is a very good dentist, very easy to be around, and very ethical. This office is always upbeat, and we love to have fun theme days for our patients.

My husband, Irwin, and I have six children, eleven grandchildren, and a cat named Kitty. In my free time, I enjoy running marathons and triathlons, skiing, hiking, and reading. I am also a member of the Edmonds Historical Society.

Amber—Restorative Dental Hygienist

I bring over 20 years of chairside experience and a smile each and every day I come to our dental office. I earned an Associates degree from Everett Community College before graduating from Bellingham Technical Institute with a degree in Dental Hygiene in 2010.

I have been with our practice for over six years and love how everyone there enjoys what they do. I enjoy working as a team with Dr. Hussey, as his restorative hygienist. It is fun and rewarding restoring beautiful smiles. I am a proud mom and wife with a beautiful, blended family of three young boys and three pesky puppies. When I’m not at the office, I love to read and have date nights at Home Depot to plan for future projects around the house.

Leisha—Financial/Scheduling Coordinator

I have been working with the practice since 2005 and love getting to know my patients throughout their treatments. 2018 brought a change in position for me, and I am happy to be greeting our patients when they first walk in the door with a smile each day. In the past I enjoyed building relationships with my Invisalign patients who I saw consistently through their treatments; but now i look forward to helping our patients achieve their treatment goals. I love who I work for, and who I work with; this is just the best job ever! Dr. George R. Hussey is a perfectionist, and he has been doing dentistry for a long time, but he still stays up-to-date on all the newest techniques by attending continuing education courses and teaching at the UW dental school. His patients love him and I do too! I enjoy working for someone who treats his team and patients with utmost respect and the highest quality of care.

My husband, Randy, and I have been married for sixteen years. We have three beautiful daughters, Preslee, Holland, and Ellis. I love spending quality time with my family, playing with my girls, shopping, antiquing, serving in my church, and taking summer vacations to Texas
