Meet The Staff
Our tight-knit staff is fun, friendly and excited to serve you at your next appointment!
Kim is our patient coordinator and has been with the practice since 2008. Her smile is the first thing patients see when they come into our office, and she is often the person they speak to on the phone. In 1982, Kim started her career as a dental assistant after graduating from Portland Community College. She worked as a dental ceramist in a lab for six years and also spent time as an office manager. After leaving the workforce for several years to focus on raising her children, Kim returned to dentistry.
Aside from making our patients feel at home, Kim also enjoys entertaining with her friends and two adult children. She is an excellent cook and loves trying out new recipes or putting a different twist on something well-known. Her husband is an avid hunter and fisherman, and Kim enjoys spending time outdoors with him. You will find them traveling in their motor-home throughout the year.
Katie’s interest in dentistry started at a young age when she started working in her Father’s dental practice during summers. She received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Central Washington University and then went on to attend hygiene school in Boise, Idaho. After hygiene school, Katie moved to Portland where she began her career in private practice in 2008.
When she’s not working Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children. They can often be found hiking, boating or camping.
