Meet the Staff

A little about Me: I have worked all over the dental industry – behind the scenes, chair side, and at the front desk! I started with Alder Dental Group when it was just “a vision” and was lucky enough to be part of the planning process.
On my free time, I enjoy anything outdoors, including wine tasting, boating, and outdoor concerts. I am a die-hard STEELERS & DUCKS fan and I LOVE pedicures!

I Love Dentistry Because: It has been my passion my entire adulthood. I love it because of the relationships I develop with patients and the dental team. I enjoy seeing all of the different and familiar faces each day. I love to watch the transformation of a smile!

I guarantee you will love my team!!

A little about Me: I have been a hygienist at Alder Dental Group since the office opened in 2007. I couldn’t imagine a better group of co-workers and patients, whom we also consider our friends. I feel honored to be a part of it! When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 3 children. We love to go hiking, biking, fishing and playing in the sand at the Oregon Coast. I also love to read and can often stay up way too late enthralled in a great book!

I Love Dentistry Because: Even though it is a specific area of healthcare, I know we are playing a major part in our patients health and happiness. It is so fascinating how having healthy teeth and gums can have a whole body effect and I love being a beneficial part of that. I also love to see my patients to hear what they have been up to since their last visit.

Building relationships is a wonderful aspect of dentistry!
