Registered Dental Hygienist

JOINED: 2007, hygienist since 2010

As a dental hygienist, Katie promotes, educates and helps to maintain good oral health. Regular procedures include dental cleanings, scaling and root planing for patients with periodontal disease, X-rays, sealants and instructing oral hygiene care.

Katie first became a dental assistant in 2003 when she graduated from Sacramento City College. After graduation, she moved to San Diego and worked for a few years at two offices in Poway and La Jolla, CA. In 2006, Katie moved back home to Sacramento and found her “dream office” at Yamamoto and Lee in 2007. She then returned to school in 2008 to pursue her dream of becoming a dental hygienist.

After graduating in 2010, she, as she says, “was fortunate enough to be able to return to my dental home at Yamamoto and Lee.”

“I am a married mother of a two and a half-year-old son, which means when I am not doing dishes, I am changing diapers. I love being a mom and I am so blessed that I am able to work three days a week, so I can enjoy these short, wondrous years.”


“I love developing relationships with patients and look forward to their return visits. I enjoy following their lives and hearing about accomplishments, jobs, family and vacations. I thrive on their happiness. I feel privileged to be in a profession that I truly enjoy.”


“Yamamoto and Lee offers top quality care. They are very friendly and thorough with answering patients’ questions and concerns. I think it is very rare to find a dental office that puts the needs of their patients first instead of focusing on the almighty dollar.”


“The best compliment is when a patient falls asleep because it means that I was that gentle……..or boring. LOL!”
