The Doctors

Dr. Karmy

“I believe everyone deserves access to quality dentistry, and decisions regarding dental care should be made based on treatment needs identified by patients and their dentists, not insurance companies.  I am perpetually involved in continuing education and believe dentistry to be a lifetime of learning. I am residency trained and board certified in anesthesia for dentistry, and have dedicated many years to providing care to our most fragile populations.  I will continue to reserve a significant portion of my clinic time for serving children.  My staff and I are highly experienced in providing treatment in sedation and anesthesia environments.  Speaking of staff, you will find the majority of our staff members have been with us for a decade or more.  We are like family, and I encourage you to come meet us.  I’m excited to expand our practice to a comprehensive family dental practice.

I hold dental licenses and general anesthesia permits in Washington and Oregon.  I’m certified in BLS, ACLS, and PALS.  Our office has a sedation suite with a level one medical gas system, complete with backup generator.  This high level of redundancy enables us to provide our treatments in the safest of office based environments.

When I’m not in the clinic or attending continuing education, I enjoy camping and fishing the Northwest, aviation, and constructing radio controlled models with my son Vincent.”

Dr. Ramsey

“I grew up in Walla Walla, WA and after finishing high school, I attended Walla Walla Community College and graduated from Walla Walla University with my Bachelor’s degree.  After graduating from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2004, I worked as an associate professor for the Restorative Department at the dental school helping teach dental students on clinic and in the dental lab.  I found my education and experience as a professor at the dental school extremely valuable.  I decided to move back to the Pacific Northwest to be near my family and raise my own family in my childhood community and have been back in Walla Walla since 2005.

I care very much for my patients and am excited to expand my practice into a family oriented facility where I can continue to treat my patients and their families and provide excellent dental care to both children and adults.  I am a member of several dental organizations that not only allow me to enjoy camaraderie with dental colleagues all over the nation, but also allow me to learn about updated dental materials and help educate me in new ways to provide excellent dental care to my patients.  My team has been working with me for several years now and they are passionate about serving their home community and our patients with the utmost care and compassion, educating our patients on good home care and providing a healthy smile.

In my spare time, I love to be outdoors.  I enjoy running, water skiing, and snow skiing and I like to go camping with family and friends.  I also enjoy reading and researching new books on book club lists and discussing these books with my book club.”

The Team
Schedule Coordinator/Front Desk Receptionist

“I have worked with Dr. Karmy and Dr. Ramsey as a schedule coordinator/front desk receptionist since 2006. I am usually the first person you see when you enter the office, and I enjoy greeting the families we serve.”

“My varied duties include scheduling appointments in our office, coordinating patient referrals, translating for the doctors and families in person and via telephone, and insurance billing. I strive to make each family feel welcome and to provide a pleasant experience for everyone.

I was born in Mexico and moved with my family to Touchet at the age of two. I have lived in Touchet all of my life and married my high school sweetheart, Henry. Together we have four boys, Luis, Dominic, Jahdiel, and Zander. I enjoy spending quality time with my family as much as possible, which includes supporting my sons and husband at their many sporting events.”

Dental Hygienist

“Hi, my name is Beverly and I serve our office as a Dental Hygienist.  I grew up in Eastern Oregon and moved to the Seattle area after high school to go to college.  I worked for several years as a make-up artist, but after having my oldest son I determined that living in a smaller town would be the best thing for me and my family.  Upon moving here, I went to Columbia Basin College and received a degree in Dental Hygiene.  I love what I do and I feel very blessed to be a part of this team.”

“When not working, I love to spend time with my family.  I am married and have two wonderful boys who keep my busy.  We love to travel and take as many trips as we can!  We enjoy a lot of adventures together as a family.”
Dental Assistant

“My name is Antoinette Perez and I have been a dental assistant since 2007. I was born and raised in Walla Walla and have enjoyed raising my four children in this great community. I started my career in dentistry at Family Medical Center where I enjoyed interacting with the community and helping those in need of dental treatment.”

“I took a year off to spend time with my then growing family, but was eventually drawn back to dental care where I was offered the opportunity to join Dr. Ramsey and staff in 2012.
As a dental assistant, it is my job to assist in providing quality and efficient dental care to every patient that comes into our office. I prepare the patient for treatment, set up for procedures as well as assist during treatment, and finally, I sterilize instruments after each procedure to be able to provide the highest quality care for the next patient. My number one goal is to provide assistance so that the doctor can fully focus on the patient and their treatment.
When I am not at the office, I love to spend time with my family, playing sports, cooking and baking, crafting, visiting our local library and attending school activities with my children. My family is the most important part of my life. I ensure that every patient I see is treated with the utmost care and attention that I would provide any member of my family, and you can trust that my patient’s comfort and safety is my first priority at each and every visit. I look forward to meeting you and your family and attending to your dental needs.”
