Staff at the Kelly Garwood dental office say they will miss the smiling face and charming personality of dental assistant Helen Jensen, who retired in December.

She has worked at the Garwood office for eight years, and has assisted people in Valley dentist chairs for more than 20 years. In total, she’s been a dental assistant for 40 years. Garwood remembers working with her in her teen years—”She was my supervisor then”—and talked Jensen into coming to her office when she opened her own practice.

Jensen’s family has also been very involved in local schools.

The Garwood office has just moved a few blocks, to 142 Main Ave N., North Bend, just behind the Chaplin’s service department. Call the office at (425) 888-0867, or send an e-mail to
