He is excited about implant dentistry's possibilities for his patients with missing teeth and their opportunities for restored dental function.

Her dental knowledge is invaluable in scheduling appointments, billing insurance, and responding to many phone calls.

Melissa was welcomed into our team in October 2018. She has worked as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant since 1997. Meeting and getting to know our patients while providing quality care is part of why Melissa loves her career.
Her family established roots in Oregon during the 1930’s, allowing her parents to be Oregon City High School alumni. Melissa became an “empty nester” last fall when her youngest of three sons left for college in Connecticut. In her personal life she enjoys traveling - her favorite country is Italy. One of her travel goals is to visit all 59 national parks within the United States.
