Meet Our Team
Dr. Rachel Mahoney Proudly Serving Edmonds, Lynnwood & Shoreline
Rachel Mahoney, DMD.
Dr. Mahoney began her dental career in Arizona in 1990 as a pediatric dental assistant, working for her father. After 8 years of general and pediatric dental assisting, she went to college to become a dental hygienist and graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas, Texas, in 1998. After graduation, a job opportunity took her to Luzern, Switzerland, where she practiced dental hygiene for 3 years.
After moving back to the states for dental school, she graduated, with honors, from Boston University School of Dental Medicine. She went on to complete a competitive residency at The University of Nevada School of Medicine. During her residency, she received intensive training in general dentistry, hospital dentistry, implant dentistry and sedation. Upon completion of residency, she and her husband, who works in emergency medicine, moved to Washington to be close to family.
Washington is her final home, but through her many moves and travels she has gained life experiences. She feels that these experiences make her able to communicate and work with patients of all ages and backgrounds. Besides her work in private practice, Dr Mahoney also spent years as a clinical instructor for dental students. She says that she loves being a dentist because it allows her to help improve a person’s health and smile. She finds it rewarding to get to know her patients and really understand their individual expectations and desires in regards to their oral health.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Mahoney enjoys reading, skiing and spending time exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, son, daughter, and dog.

Hi! I’m Yelena. I was a patient at Mahoney Family Dentistry for years before I began working here. I always really enjoyed my dental visits.
Having a healthcare background, I was excited when they invited me to join their team! I come from a large family of 6 children and I enjoy spending time with them. I like to read and I sing in 2 choirs and a vocal group in church.
