Pattie Peterson – Assistant
Hi, I’m Pattie Peterson. Dr. Ryan Kowalczyk dental assistant. I have been a dental assistant since 1996. I’ve been with Dr. Kowalczyk since 2003. Received my education at BSU. I love traveling to South Dakota to see my kids and grandkids. My husband and I go snowshoeing in the winter at Idaho City and Bogus Basin. I also love to run, and have completed 1/2 marathons. I would love to see you and your family in our office.
Kristin Marcks – Front Desk
Hi, I’m Kristin. I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have always appreciated exploring new places, so I enjoy traveling as much as possible. The farther it is, the better. I attended a few different schools but finally earned my bachelors degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Two of my favorite pastimes are camping and photography. After graduation I relocated to beautiful Boise for its obvious benefits in raising my two great kids: a beautiful, creative daughter and my active, blue-eyed son. My mom, two aunts and 3 cousins all work in the field of dentistry so it comes naturally to work in a dental office. I love being part of the great team at Dr. K’s office. I am the first smiling face you see when you walk in the door. Come see us soon!
Jen Compton – Hygienist
Hi, I’m Jen. I was born and raised in Idaho and would not live anywhere else. Idaho has what I love, the outdoors. In the winter I hit the slopes at Bogus or Brundage, and in the summer I love to hike table rock, garden, go camping and boating. I enjoy spending as much time outdoors with my husband Tom and our spoiled Lab Abby as I can. Traveling has become Tom and my passion and we can’t wait to continue experiencing new places and going on new adventures together.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being a hygienist. I take great pride in making all my patients comfortable, and that their time with me is a great experience. I am always open to listen to any concerns or suggestions that you may have so that your visit to our office is enjoyable!
