Meet the Team


SueHello, I'm Sue and I am Dr. Altman's administrative assistant. I have worked in the field of dentistry for 29 years and seeing the smiling faces of our patients never gets old. I love getting to know each individual and helping them to get the treatment they need.

I live in the Tacoma area but am originally from Monte Vista, CO. I am married with twin daughters, a step-daughter, a step-son, and two dogs, a Weimaraner and miniature Dachshund. I love salmon and halibut fishing and motorcycle riding.


RondaHello, my name is Ronda and I am Dr. Altman's dental assistant. I assist him in all aspects of dentistry including procedures, set-up, clean-up, and ordering supplies. I like getting to know our patients on a more personal level and watching them grow up.

I am married with three children, one grandchild, four cats, and a dog. In my free time I coach soccer, run half-marathons, go camping, and spend time with my family.


StephanieHi, my name is Stephanie Altman and I am a registered dental hygienist. I went to Walla Walla University and graduated from Loma Linda University with my Bachelor's in Dental Hygiene. My job does not only include cleaning teeth and helping my patients to maintain their oral health but it also includes educating and showing them how they can improve their oral health which in turn affects their overall wellbeing. I enjoy working for Dr. Altman because I feel everyone here not only enjoys their job but also because we all want the best for our patients and strive to achieve that.

I grew up in Washington and have learned to love the outdoors. In my free time I enjoy hiking, mountain climbing, reading, and shopping. I also try and give back by going overseas on dental mission trips and have been to the Republic of Kiribati multiple times and Kenya. I look forward to meeting you at your next cleaning.
