Meet Our Team

Dr. Theron Manson purchased our practice in 2012 from the previous retiring dentist, James Soine, DDS. We’ve kept the same philosophy of care as the previous owner, which is why so many of his patients have stayed with Dr. Manson after coming to our office for over 40 years.

Meet Theron Manson, DDS

Dr. Theron Manson was raised in British Columbia but now calls Seattle his home. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington. He and his wife Connie have two boys, and enjoy skiing, hiking, and traveling together.

When he isn’t at work, Dr. Theron Manson also enjoys coaching his sons’ athletic activities.

To stay abreast of the latest patient care techniques, Dr. Theron Manson completes as many as 200 hours of continuing education per year.

He has many areas of interest including sleep dentistry (for individuals with sleep apnea), Invisalign braces, and other orthodontic therapies.

Meet Connie Manson, DDS

Dr. Connie Manson grew up in Seattle and spent many happy years at the University of Washington obtaining a BA in English Literature and a BS in Biochemistry. She then found herself sitting next to Theron in dental school and the rest is history. Connie received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2002 and dedicated her career caring for under-served families all around Seattle.

Cheering on her boys at their sporting events is one of her all-time favorite activities. Camping, hiking, and enjoying a good book are also high on her list. If she is not in her garden, you may find her volunteering for the PTA, taking a slow run around the neighborhood, or trying to convince her husband that the backyard could sure use some chickens.

Our Team Members

Vanessa – Dental Hygienist

Vanessa was born and raised in South Africa, and lived there until she was 23 years old. Her family farmed sugarcane on the border of Kruger National Park. The Crocodile River formed the eastern border between their farm and Kruger, and yes, it was full of crocs! After marrying her husband, a native New Yorker, she relocated to the USA. They live in Bothell with their 2 teenage boys, but they visit South Africa as often as they can.

Vanessa has been a practicing hygienist for 14 years, and obtained her degree at Lake Washington Technical College. She loves being a hygienist because she loves working with people and caring for them. The number one comment she receives from her patients is that she has a “gentle touch.” You will enjoy her personable, warm, and encouraging approach to dentistry.

Augustina – Registered Dental Assistant

Augustina joined our team in 2016 and has worked in the dental field for over 10 years. In addition to her exceptional chair-side experience, she also developed and has been teaching a course in dental assisting for the past two years. She enjoys working in all areas of dentistry and keeps up to date with the latest dental technology.

Augustina is the mother of 3 beautiful girls and is excellent at making our younger patients’ experiences here a positive one. She loves being a part of giving all of our patients their best smile.

Charitie – Business Team

Charitie has been in the Dental field since 1999 and joined Manson Dentistry in July 2017. She has experience working at the front desk as well as assisting. She loves helping people and feels there is something very satisfying about making a difference in someone’s life.

Charitie has 3 amazing teenage children that keep her busy at all times, but she wouldn’t want it any other way. If she’s not enjoying one of her kids’ sporting events, you will most likely find her doing some kind of outdoor activity or reading a good book

Joanna – Business Team

One of the favorite parts of my job is working with kids and making their visit a positive and fun experience, they always make me laugh! Another favorite is when an apprehensive patient, after their appointment, says ‘That wasn’t so bad, thank you!’”

Joanna has worked in dentistry since the year 2000 after studying at Lake Washington Technical College. She is from Redmond and is married to Dave, and has a son. She gardens, enjoys reading and spends time at Homeward Pet Adoption Center.

Cindy Kay – Business Team

Cindy Kay has been in the dental field since 2008 when she went back to work after her kids were in school. “The relationship with our patients is what makes me tick. I enjoy getting to know them, their families and what interests they have.”

She has a son who is in college and a daughter who will herself be off to college soon. She enjoys spending time with her kids, attending the theatre, watching movies at home, cooking and just hanging out. Cindy Kay also loves to hike, ride her mountain bike and read and always loves hearing about good books.

Why We’re Different

Our patients know that Dr. Manson is honest about the services he provides. He won’t make you feel pressured into getting treatment that you don’t want or need. We want you to feel comfortable, as if we were a part of your own family. When you do need treatment, you’ll find that our extended office hours make it easy to work visits in before heading to the office for the day. Same day emergency appointments are also available.

Seattle Metropolitan Magazine named Dr. Manson a “Top Dentist” in the area. Call us today to experience some of the most trusted oral care in the greater Kirkland area. New patients are always welcome.
