Restorative Dental Hygienist, RDH

Our doctors are simply fantastic at what they do! They continually strive to be at the top of their field, and encourage us to do the same. I enjoy helping patients to be aware of oral diseases, as well as educate them on how to keep a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile.

In my time off from work, I am usually hanging out with family and enjoying the outdoor activities Bend has to offer.  I also love meeting up with my friends at the bowling alley for our league night and enjoying some local microbrews on tap.

I began my career in dentistry in 2000 and joined this wonderful team in 2004. Building relationships with patients and helping them achieve the healthy mouth & smile they deserve is the best part of my job. 

I grew up in the small town of Burns, OR and feel blessed to enjoy and live in a place as beautiful as Bend.  From golfing and skiing to hiking and biking, you can often find me and my husband, Jim, out with our Brittany's, Max and Gus, enjoying the central Oregon lifestyle.

Making people laugh and providing quality dentistry are the aspects I enjoy most about being a Dental Assistant. I feel that the most important part of my career is to assist each patient in having a positive experience at their dental visits. I have 12 years experience in dentistry and believe that it is an absolute pleasure working with our talented Dentists. The dental care at Awbrey Dental is outstanding and proves the dedication our providers place in their work. The personalities of our entire team create the perfect balance, giving us many strengths to accomplish all that we do.

Dental Assistant, EFDA

You will always find me with a smile on my face. I have extensive experience in the dental field. In our office you will most likely find me chair side assisting one of the doctors. When I'm not taking care of our amazing patients I stay busy being  supermom to our four amazing children. I'm very proud to have one of our children already attending college in Eugene and another just was accepted to a university in Arizona. One of my favorite things to do is get away on an adventure with my wonderful husband. I enjoy everything outdoors that Oregon has to offer, camping, hiking, from the mountains to the ocean. If it leads to adventure I'm in!
