Denise's
Story

“It’s important to be respectful, and make sure patients feel welcome.”

“A big part of my job is customer service,” says Denise Callejo.   Denise is a Dental Assistant who provides adult dental services at Unity Care NW’s Cornwall Avenue offices. She sees many patients with significant dental needs. “Patients with complex dental issues can get nervous when they need several appointments to complete treatment. I encourage them to stay calm; if you take it one step at a time, it’s not as overwhelming.”

Denise moved to Bellingham from Hawaii, about six years ago. She received on-the-job training as a Dental Assistant there, and then she went on to pursue formal Dental Assistant training at Charter College in Bellingham.

 

 

She started as an intern at Unity Care NW,in 2014 and was later hired as full-time staff member.

One of the most rewarding parts of her job is getting to work with patients from different walks of life. She appreciates her role in improving patients’ oral health and seeing their sense of accomplishment after their dental work in complete. She looks forward to seeing her patients shift from restorative dental care to maintenance and hygiene.  “It’s important to be respectful, and make sure patients feel welcome.”

Becky's
Story

After returning to Bellingham, Becky found a health home at Unity Care NW.

Becky Spithill’s involvement with Unity Care NW began when she became a patient in 2014. After living in Washington, D.C. and Seattle for several years, Becky moved to Whatcom County about three years ago.  She has a long history working with non-profit organizations and at all levels of government. She previously worked as an analyst with the United States Government Accountability Office during George W. Bush’s administration and as a policy analyst for former King County Executive Ron Sims.

Becky’s move to Bellingham was, in a sense, a homecoming. She attended Western Washington University and has lived in Bellingham off and on over the past several decades.

At Unity Care NW, she found high-quality health care with a convenient location. Then she learned of an opportunity to become a Board of Directors member.

Becky found that the Unity Care NW Board of Directors was dedicated to finding a “good mix of people who could contribute their time and talent to helping others.” After the vetting process, Becky joined the Board in March 2017. As a first-year member, she enjoys learning about the challenges facing UCNW patients. She’s active on the Finance Committee and has observed that staff are dedicated and genuinely enjoy their work. “You can tell a lot about an organization in the way it treats its staff.”
