MEET OUR TEAM
Dr. Aaron Huang
Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read a part of my story.
As odd as it is to say on dentist’s “About Me” dentistry was actually never on my career radar growing up. I always knew my strong suit was in Math and Science but never had a career strike me with a passion. It wasn’t until a combination of job shadowing and clinical experiences during dental school that my eyes were opened to how much positive impact dentistry could have on an individual, much less a community. I can honestly say that my appreciation for what dental care can do continues to grow each day and my drive to improve my clinical and business skills is entirely for you the patient and community. Those contributing include continuing education and accountability groups, talented business minds and staff, and patient feedback to help make each aspect of your dental visit great. One of my hopes for this world is to not see a single cavity appear. However unthinkable that may seem, I am happy and honored to be your first line of defense should a cavity or toothache occur. I have seen and treated many patients that at one point were traumatized and fearful of dental visits. However minimal or extensive the problems though, I never give up on patients nor stop encouraging them towards a place of good health and habit. Where ever you are in life regarding your oral health, I am privileged to be working with you towards a healthier and greater smile.

Hi my name is Ally Smith I am a dental assistant here at Garden City Dental! I grew up and currently live in Kelso, on my free time my husband and I enjoy taking our beautiful black lab long on long walks in the woods. My true passion for Dentistry evolved around the age of 17. I’ve always been fascinated by teeth but understanding how to help people around that fascination would soon become my reality. I believe life is not measured by the things that we acquire physically, but rather the things that we can do to help others, no matter how small. I am blessed to work with such wonderful people, and pursue my passion with such a wonderful community. Don’t forget! Floss Like A Boss!
