Meet Dr. LaRae Van Derschelden
I am passionate about learning something new every day, a passion that began as a child, continued through my formal education, and is still with me today. A practicing dentist for more than 27 years, I love my job and the relationships I have created over the years. After graduating from the University of Washington in 1985 with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery, I have looked forward to the challenges each day presents and the opportunity to meet those challenges with the education and training I received.

Outside the Office
A native of Seattle, I currently reside in Edmonds. My free time is spent with my two wonderful children and four amazing grandchildren, in the garden, snow skiing, and reading. With an interest in traveling, I push myself to learn about different cultures and ways of life. I also volunteer my time for community programs and non-profit activities. I have worked with the Smile Mobile for 15 years, helped organize and participate in Snohomish County Free Dental Day, and have gone on several dental mission trips to Cambodia and Nicaragua.
