Zetta, Office Manager
Zetta’s experience in dentistry spans over 24 years, with the last two spent here at Dr. Sage’s practice. She was born and raised in Seattle, and after school, she put her business skills to use and worked in banking for 13 years. After that, she took a break to start her own activities business in Maui, HI, where she lived for 10 years. Finally, she returned home to Seattle in 1994 and started her dental career. She loves everything about her work, and we’re happy to have her!
In her free time, Zetta enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and taking long walks. She loves to laugh and finds humor in most things. When you meet her, she’ll definitely have a smile on her face.
