Office Manager

Educating patients, making long-lasting relationships, and giving people the confidence to smile are just a few of my favorite things about working at 82nd Drive Dental. As our office manager, I try to make each day run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. I grew up in Southern Oregon and moved north in 2012. I am married with two children, both boys who keep me on my toes! When I’m not in the office I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, riding quads, camping, and spending time with my family and friends.




Scheduling and Treatment Coordinator

While my main responsibilities include scheduling appointments and coordinating treatments, educating patients on the importance of oral health and helping them reach their goals are the best parts of my job. I look forward to meeting new patients and making them feel comfortable in our office. I just recently moved to the Portland area with my husband and our 3 young daughters. I enjoying hanging out with my family and friends and doing crafts. Se habla espanol.



Dental Assistant/EFDA

Working here, I get to meet and spend time with incredible people, helping our patients with their oral health needs and getting to know them. The exchanges we have are always interesting and I learn something new from each person and every conversation. This is a practice that puts the needs of the patients before everything else, and is a great environment in which to work. I assist the doctors, chairside, providing support to the doctor and the patient. When I’m not at the office, you’ll likely find me with my three kids and husband, whether we’re playing outside or watching movies together. I enjoy bowling and spending time with friends and loved ones, too.

Dental Assistant/EFDA
As a recent local graduate, Michaela joined us April 2015. She is really enjoying getting to know each of our patients personally. Every day is a new adventure with the team here. In her spare time Michaela and her pup Denali enjoy taking trips to the sand dunes and supporting friends and family down at the dirt track. Michaela loves to travel and hopes to visit all 50 states- and Paris. 



Registerd Dental Hygienist

I went to OIT where I had 4 years of hands-on experience. Since graduating in 2013 I have worked in multiple offices on an on-call basis. Recently I found a Home here at 82nd Drive Dental Clinic and I am very excited to meet all of our patients and get to know everyone on an idividual basis. The thing I enjoy most about being a hygienist is helping my patients achieve the healthy smile they have always wanted. When i am not working, I enjoy spending time with my son, running and playing games with my husband. I look forward to meeting you at your next check-up.
