Dr. Jared Lothyan

Instilling healthy dental habits into little surfers.

‘‘Being a father of five children, I see nothing more enjoyable than teaching and being with children every day. I believe it's essential to create a fun and enjoyable dental experience for your child while teaching the importance of oral health.

I love working with kids! I strive to create a fun, professional environment and build positive, trusting relationships with children and parents alike.

At every visit, I’ll partner with you to ensure your little surfer develops healthy habits for a lifetime.

Fun fact: The Smile Surfers theme was inspired by my childhood family road trips to San Clemente Beach in Southern California in an orange VW bus.

Education and continuing education
Before I pursued pediatric dentistry, I worked as a general dentist for a short time. Then, I completed a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Rochester and Strong Memorial Hospital…Open a new window to the University of Rochester website… in Rochester, NY.

Family life
I’m a native of the Seattle area, and my greatest joys in life are my five children and my wife of 20+ years.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, where I love to hike, camp, and fish. I also love surfing and restored a vintage 1976 VW pop-up camper van for those quick surf getaway weekends!

Dr. Krisha Misa

Enriching kiddos’ lives with kindness and quality care.

‘‘There is nothing more radiant than a child's smile, and I'm incredibly blessed to be around so many in this line of work! My goal is to enable every child to have a safe and fun dental experience through the power of kindness and quality-focused care, all while providing peace of mind to the parents who trust us with their little ones.

I grew up east of the mountains in Spokane, Washington. After getting a taste of city life, my husband and I decided to return to the Pacific Northwest.

My goal as a pediatric dentist is to provide an enjoyable experience for your child and entire family! I truly believe growing up with safe, fun dental experiences will benefit your little surfer for the rest of their life.

Education and continuing education
I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. When I realized children’s dentistry was where I was meant to be, I decided to continue my education. I completed my specialty postgraduate training in pediatric dentistry and master’s in oral sciences at the University of Illinois Chicago…Open a new window to the University’s website….

Family life
In my spare time, I love cooking, baking, and exploring the great outdoors.

The Sumner dental team at Smile Surfers

I love this dentist! The entire staff is absolutely wonderful with children. They explain everything they are doing, allow the child to touch things they are going to use, and provide an all around great environment. So glad we found them and would HIGHLY recommend them to everyone!
