Meet the Clinical Team



Dental Assistant

Keli Mckern

 As a result of living in the Colville/ Kettle Falls area my entire life, many of my patients are like family. My days are filled with wonderful conversations and treasured friendships.  I provide chairside assistance to our team of doctors and have worked with Dr Fox since 1999.  I’m also our supply manager and the practice OSHA representative. I love working with an incredible team of doctors and coworkers. We’re all passionate about gentle dentistry and helping people achieve their healthiest, best smile possible.

My husband, Dave, and our children, Connor, and Kennedy, enjoy taking advantage of the many blessings that living in beautiful northeastern Washington provides. Usually tagging along on our adventures are our trusty yellow lab, Tilly, and our Chiweenie, Murphy.

 Dave and I will become empty nesters in the fall and look forward to all the freedoms that affords. 

I also enjoy beating Dr. Fox in our fantasy football league...Game on!



Dental Assistant

Meri Hansen

I have provided chairside assistance during dental and oral surgery procedures for approximately 26 years. If you have questions concerning your treatment, I am the person to ask!. As one of our Treatment Coordinators, I like to help patients understand their care plan. It's important that you, as our patient, feel you have an advocate that understands your needs.  In my free time at the office ( wink, wink), I’m our social media, website coordinator and one of our community relations officers. You will find our office does several fun giveaway games, such as the NFL Superbowl board, March Madness NCAA boards, April Autism Awareness Month.

I love that I help people change their lives and improve their self-esteem. When someone loves their healthy smile, they’re happier and filled with confidence. We create those smiles every day!

My family keeps me busy when I’m not working. My husband Tony and I have three kids — Brittany, Jami, and Brady — along with three grandchildren: Braxton, Michael, and Caylee. My time outside the office is spent reading, making jewelry and crafts, and boating on Lake Roosevelt.



Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Karalee Sheehan

I have worked in dentistry since 1991. In 2013 I returned to school to further my skills. I am now licensed to place fillings and further help our doctors so they may better serve our patients.  I enjoy being able to help you achieve the beautiful, healthy, and functional smile you love.

My wonderful husband  and I have 2 grown children, Scott and Amber. We love family time, camping, boating, and snowmobiling. I am originally from Canada and have just recently been awarded my American citizenship. 



Patient Coordinator & Dental Assistant

Sara Huff

I was hired by Dr. Fox 3 years ago and trained in office to be a dental assistant and front desk receptionist. This means, I have the oppurtunity to work just about everywhere in the office. It's such a pleasure to get to know our fabulous patients, but also to be part of such a dedicated and kind team.

Both my husband, Thomas, and I grew up in Colville and love the area. We are so fortunate to have our families nearby, enabling us to spend as much time with them as possible. We also have five rescue pets that keep us busy. Recently, we bought our first home and are enjoying renovating and making it our own. 



Dental Assistant

Nycole Clark

I’m know in the office as “Baby Bird” because I am a recent graduate of Spokane Community College’s dental assisting program. It has been a longtime desire of mine to become an assistant as I spent a lot of time in a dental chair throughout my teen years. I loved watching the assistants! I am grateful to be working in an office where the patients and the team feel like a family. I have just recently moved to Colville from Cheney, Washington with my husband, Brandon, and our daughter, Alice. We are also proud parents to our dog, Chevy. We look forward to making Colville our home.
