Meet the Doctors

We love being dentists, not only for the technical challenges and rewards but more so because we get to step into many people’s lives every day and help them achieve their healthiest smile

Your smile means everything to us


Jared Persinger

Outside the Office
Originally from Indiana, I stayed on the west/best coast after dental school because I can’t imagine living anywhere else! When I’m not in the office, I love to play disc golf and spend time with my wife and baby daughter. I’m also really into dental history and local history/maps, so if you have anything to teach me or show me, please do!

Sonya Whisler

Outside the Office
Away from the office, I enjoy relaxing with a good view and appreciating the trees and waters of the Pacific Northwest. Having grown up in Seattle, I now consider myself lucky to have found my new home in the Olympia area with my husband, Shane. Our rescue dog Mikk is a faithful companions and A+ ‘good boy’. I love animals, and would be thrilled to see a photo or hear a story about yours! I enjoy spending my free time making art, from painting, calligraphy, and interior design, to gardening, refinishing and upholstering furniture. I enjoy getting to know new people and places, experiencing different cultures, and embracing diversity and education.

Professional Affiliations for Both

It is exciting to be a part of the technological advances in dentistry and to be able to help people improve their health. We strongly believe it is essential for us to remain up-to-date with the latest products, materials, and techniques in our field. The changes we have seen and will see in dentistry are making healthcare better every year, so we actively pursue continuing education courses, both locally and nationally, in order to constantly improve our services to you.
