Dentist in Puyallup


Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated with my bachelor’s in criminal justice and sociology from Washington State University. I then decided to change my focus and I received my dental hygiene degree from Pierce College and I have been working at BellaSmiles Dentistry since 2008. I am married with 2 children, both boys who keep me plenty busy outside of work.

Registered Dental Assistant

I’m Litausha and I’ve been here at BellaSmiles Dentistry for 1 ½ years as a dental assistant. I decided to go into dentistry to help improve one smile at a time & to help boost people’s confidence! I love watching the Seahawks and Mariners & I enjoy doing any outdoor activities like fishing and hiking with my family.

Front Office Scheduling Coordinator

I’m new to the Dental Field, I came from a chiropractic office before joining the BellaSmiles Dentistry family in early 2015. I am excited to come to work every day and meet new people and form new friendships with my coworkers. I have a wonderful family, including two awesome, energetic kids. I enjoy volunteering at their school, playing with my dogs and any activity where I can be outside.


Dental Assistant & Patient Care Coordinator

I'm Terrie and I've recently graduated from a Dental Assistant training program, since then I was given the fantastic opportunity to join the team at BellaSmiles Dentistry. I feel so blessed to work along side such amazing doctors like Dr. Nigam and Dr. Lloren. Every day I learn something new and expand my skill set as a dental assistant and you might even see me working up at the front desk. It is so fulfilling to know that the patients area always getting the utmost care and attention when visiting our dental office. My daughter and husband are my pride and joy and I am so thankful to have such a loving and supporting family. We have recently moved here from Italy so we like to go out on fun and exciting adventures as we get to know the State of Washington better.
