Dr. Sean S. Jung’s Team
Melinda has been a part of Dr. Jung’s wonderful team for almost seven years and enjoys interacting with the patients and providing them with the best knowledge and care in the dental field.
Melinda was born and raised in Germany and is fluent in German. She lived there for 18 years, met her husband of 20 years, who serves our beautiful country, and moved to Washington eight years ago. She has three children: two girls, 20 and 18, and a boy, 13. She enjoys spending time with her family, bowling, and baking, and likes to travel to the East Coast as much as possible to visit her relatives and daughters who are attending college there.
Kim is the business coordinator for Dr. Jung. She has been a part of Dental Health Associates for 21 years and feels privileged to work with such a dedicated team that delivers the highest quality of service. She enjoys being able to provide a great outcome for all her patients. Kim also loves being a part of the family this practice is made of and the interactions she has with her patients. They have become like friends to her.
Kim is from Tacoma. She loves to travel and see new places. She has a little boy named Brayden who is 18 months old and the highlight of her life. She also has a tiny Shih Tzu/Poodle named Buddy, who loves to play with Brayden and would every minute of the day if he could. What she loves to do outside of Dental Health Associates is be a mom, which is something she has waited a long time to be, and something she could have never imagined could be as amazing as it is — almost as amazing as being a part of Dental Health Associates!

Helena loves being a part of the Dental Health Associates family and enjoys meeting new patients and providing them with her knowledge and sharing her desire to meet each individual’s overall comfort and satisfaction with their oral health.
