Meet Dr. Labrum

I grew up in South Jordan, Utah where I studied Public Health with a minor in Chemistry at Utah State University and worked as a Safety and Health Advisor at Kennecott Utah Copper. After a couple of years in the health and safety industry I attended and graduated from the University Of Michigan, School Of Dentistry. I served for two years in Southern Brazil on a mission for the LDS Church, and I speak fluent Portuguese and even some Spanish!

I enjoy camping, snowboarding and working on cars (even if they're not always mine!). I love being outdoors and spending time with my wife Elise, our two daughters (Makaylee and Peyton) and our sons (Jackson and Caleb). We are honored to call Selah home and to be a part of this truly awesome community.

Dentistry is quickly changing and as technology improves I strive to deliver the most up-to-date and safest dental care I can. I've taken many courses to keep up to date on all the latest dental technology, including: Endodontics (root canals), same-day ceramic crowns with Cerec (white, no-metal crowns and fillings), digitally guided implant placement and restoration, digital radiography, oral surgery and even sedation dentistry! I insist on making patients feel comfortable and do my very best to ensure that your visit is as pleasant as possible. It is my priority to make sure you understand your dental needs and deliver the best possible dental care. I love to treat patients of all ages and I look forward to meeting you and your family! Call today for an appointment, you won't regret it.

Meet the Team

Andrea

Recall Coordinator and Dental Assistant

I am a registered dental assistant, I graduated from Selah High School in 2005, and immediately started my career in dentistry. My husband and I have been married for 3 years and we have an 18 month old daughter. She is our pride and joy. We love music, food and movies. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and feel very fortunate to be able to work in all areas of our practice, doing everything from scheduling appointments and dealing with insurance to Assisting Dr. Labrum and our Hygienists.

It has been an amazing 7 years working at Selah Family Dentistry, we have an incredible team and Dr. Labrum is not only a great dentist but a great boss. Our office is always full of fun and laughter and we treat our patients like family. It is an honor to get to serve a community as amazing as Selah and I look forward to many more years with the team at Selah Family Dentistry.

Brittany

Dental Assistant

I grew up in Monterey, CA then moved to Yakima in 2006. I graduated from West Valley High in 2008, which is where I met my husband Nick. Nick and I have been together since 2009, and married in 2014. I am super fun loving, and I love to laugh. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband, going to 3D archery competitions, hunting, watching football, and playing with our dog, Carhartt. I also enjoy working out, listening to country music, going to EDM concerts, and hanging out around a campfire with friends.

I went to Charter College for Dental Assisting in 2015 and have been with Selah Family Dentistry since 2017. My favorite part about my job is getting people to have fun and feel comfortable at the dentist - a place nobody likes to be! Our awesome team will have you feeling right at home and you’ll forget all your fears of being at the dentist! I hope you enjoy being our patient as much as we enjoy having you here!

Erika

Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for quite a few years and in several states including: Florida, where I received my dental assisting degree, Charleston, South Carolina, and here in the Yakima Valley.  We moved from South Carolina after visiting Washington on Vacation. I have been with Selah Family Dentistry for over 10 years! My favorite part of my job is that I get to meet so many people. I love to make my patients feel comfortable and do my very best to make them feel welcome.

I love living in the Yakima Valley, as it is a great place to raise my three daughters and my granddaughter. I enjoy tennis, my husband and I have played competitively for many years.

Gina

Dental Hygienist

I have over 20 years of experience as a Dental Hygienist. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University and played collegiate sports. I love working with a Dental Team that treats patients like Family!

Outside of work, I love spending time with my Husband, Ken and my kids Dylan and Karly. I have a passion for health and fitness and like to play recreational soccer and love the sport of Crossfit.

My motto is “Find something every day to laugh about, even if it means laughing at yourself!”

Katie

Office Manager and Front Desk

I am so glad you are visiting our website and welcome! I will be one of the first people you talk with when you call or email our office. I have been a part of Selah Family Dentistry for many years. I always look forward to meeting new people, listening to what they need, and finding a way to help them achieve their best smile. I was originally trained as a dental assistant and now I use those skills at the Front Desk to help ensure all aspects of your visit with us are positive, informative and beneficial.

I truly enjoy the wonderful people I work with, but at the end of the day I get to go home to the love of my life and our two kids. We enjoy being outside in the summer, Netflix in the Winter and we try to take motorcycle road trips as often as possible.

Kristina

Treatment Coordinator and Insurance Specialist

I was born and raised in the Yakima Valley. I have been working in dentistry since high school and have been here at Selah Family Dentistry since 2004.

I worked my first eight years in this practice as a dental assistant and use that knowledge to help people plan and get the dental care that they need. Part of my job is to assist patients with insurance questions and help them understand their treatment plans. I love to help patients achieve their dental goals!

When I am not at work, I enjoy hanging-out with my husband and three children. We love sports and you can usually find me attending one of my kids sporting events.

Tracie

Dental Hygienist

For the past eight years I’ve had the pleasure of working for this office and with this amazing team. I love my job because I get the opportunity to get to know my patients as they come in for dental check-ups and cleanings!

I grew up in East Valley and went to school here in the Yakima Valley. I have four crazy dogs and I have a habit of trying to collect and save more animals. I enjoy reading, watching The Walking Dead, and anything sci-fi!!!
