Meet The Team


Hello, it’s nice to meet you! I work as the financial coordinator in our practice, and have been working here over 20 years! Part of my job is contacting insurance companies to make sure our patients are always getting the highest level of coverage possible. In our office, we truly care about our patients, and it shows! We love going above and beyond to make each person feel completely at ease here.

At home, I love spending time with my family! My husband, Ted, and I have two daughters named Shelley and Jamie, and recently were blessed with a beautiful granddaughter, Jaycee! I love to watch and play all sports, especially golf!





Welcome! As the office coordinator, I schedule appointments, and greet our patients with a smile! I have been in the dental industry for about 40 years, and have been at Dr. Jacka’s practice for over 20 years! I love my job because I get to meet unique and interesting people each and every day!

When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with my better half, Jeffrey. We love water sports, golfing and throwing get-togethers for family and friends!




Welcome! I’m one of the registered dental hygienists working for Dr. Jacka. I know that each of our patients is an individual, so I treat each person differently. I always get to know our patients on a personal level in order to know how to make them feel comfortable!

When I’m not in the office, I love spending time with family, camping, and would love to have the energy and ambition to start running again!





Hello, I’m13263907_10208426997945009_7052127782888338934_n Brandy, I am a Registered Dental Assistant at Thomas Jacka DDS in Federal Way, WA. I’ve been working in the dental field for 6 years and enjoy every moment of it. I love to learn new things and make sure my patients have a comfortable experience every time they are in our dental chair. I enjoy the time I’ve gotten to know Dr. Jacka and the team and could not imagine myself working anywhere else! I found my dental home and I like to make patients feel the same.

I love the Seahawks and Sounders and enjoy cheering them on outside of the office. I also love to travel, hike, camp and go to the gym!







Hi, I’m Katie, one of the dental assistants at Thomas Jacka DDS in Federal Way, WA. It’s a big part of my job to make sure everyone feels warmly welcomed and comfortable during their treatment. I love getting to know patients personally and putting them at ease while they are under our dental care. I enjoy working with Dr. Jacka because he cares deeply for our patients and strives for excellence in all he does. He also has a great sense of humor!

Outside the office, my hobbies include cooking, reading, and cycling. It’s a goal of mine to someday do the Seattle to Portland bike ride. I also cherish the time I spend with my family and friends, and spoiling my two cats.



My career in dentistry began as a dental assistant when I was in high school. Now, as a dental hygienist, I have 20+ years of experience and love what I do! I want every patient to have a pleasant dental experience. I take pride in my work and am happy to work with a dentist and team of people who are the best at what they do.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy crafting, reading, time with my family and long walks with my puppy.
