Linda LaBrosse

Registered Dental Hygienist

Linda is happy to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible while addressing their dental questions, concerns, and needs. Born and raised in Missoula, MT, she chose to pursue dental hygiene because of her love for helping and caring for others. She studied at Montana State University, Spokane Community College, and Clark Community College before moving to the Yakima Valley. Here, she loves to camp, boat, attend live concerts, and watch the changing seasons.

Rachel Fowler

Registered Dental Hygienist

Rachel grew up in Selah and has lived in the Yakima Valley her whole life. Because her grandfather was a dentist, she has always had an interest in oral health. She graduated from YVC’s Dental Hygiene program in 2021 and is very glad she is now able to help educate patients in proper dental hygiene. In her free time, she enjoys reading, spending time with family, rock hounding, and being outdoors.

Dental Assistants

Gloria Garcia

Lead Dental Assistant

Gloria has been assisting Dr. Immel since 2022 and has 16 years of experience as a dental assistant. She enjoys taking care of her indoor plants and spending time with her grandbabies and two fur babies.

Daisy Pineda

Dental Assistant

Daisy’s interest in dentistry started when she was little. She always enjoyed going to the dentist and seeing the staff and everything around her. Now, she’s part of that staff herself! When not at work, she likes to go hiking or camping. She also enjoys taking care of her plants and relaxing with her two cats.



Briseida is graduating from Charter College and will be beginning her career as a dental assistant this year. When she is not attending school or learning on the job, she enjoys spending time with her two German shepherds, family, and friends.
