KRISTINA MCCRANEY BAYO

Operations Manager

Born and raised in Snohomish County, Kristina started her passion for dentistry with the beginning of her dental career in 2006, following a solid background in customer service and management. She joined Dr. Ball and Sammamish Endodontics in the summer of 2017 during the office’s initial construction; she has been a valuable piece of the practice ever since. When Kristina is not in the office she can be found traveling with her husband or volunteering her time with local companies/non-profits; and she is always looking to volunteer more! Feel free to send any leads her way!

BROOKE BOLD

Lead Dental Assistant

Brooke obtained her Dental Assistant License in 2012 and after working in general dentistry for some time she found her love for Endodontics. Joining Dr. Ball early in her career allowed Brooke to expand her knowledge, skill set and performance to be at the top of her field. When Brooke is not in the office, she can be found enjoying time with her family at her secluded riverfront home and attending activity events with her daughter. She is in the office all week and loves getting to know our patients!
