I joined the Deschutes Dental team in March of 2014. I have been working in dentistry since 1995 and I have lived in Central Oregon since 1997. I handle the practices’ insurance claims as well as all other front office duties. When I am not working I am spending time with my husband and my 2 dogs. I enjoy camping, kayaking and many more outdoor activities. I feel lucky to be part of the Deschutes Dental team where we provide the highest quality of care. I like building new and long lasting relationships with our wonderful patients.
I am a central Oregon native and I graduated from the Dental Assisting program at COCC in June of 1999. I fell in love with my husband over 19 years ago and I have been happily married for 10 years now.
My playful dogs are like my children. I have been with the practice since we opened in 2001. After 14 years of assisting with Dr. Freeman chair side I have changed my job position and duties. I am now our Office Manager. You might see me out hiking or walking the river trail. Yearly trips to Las Vegas, exercising, hunting and spending time with friends are just a few of the activities I enjoy outside of work. My favorite thing about being part of the Deschutes Dental family is helping the patients understand their treatment and have a comfortable, pain free experience. Overall, I love the relaxed friendly atmosphere and beautiful setting of the office, as well as the exceptional care we provide our patients.
I joined the Deschutes Dental team in March of 2014 as a dental assistant. I graduated from the dental assisting program at COCC in 2004. I grew up in Prineville and recently spent 3 years in Texas before moving back to central Oregon. My husband and I are busy raising our 2 kids. When I’m not at work I enjoy scrapbooking and spending time with my family. I feel confident in the fact that we provide quality dental treatment in a caring fashion and I enjoy spending time with all the intriguing patients.
I joined the Deschutes Dental team in February of 2015 after recently relocating to the area. Born and raised on the southern Oregon coast where the Rogue meets the Pacific; I left my hometown to earn my education, graduating from Oregon Institute of Technology in 2011 with my degree in Dental Hygiene. My boyfriend Ben and I enjoy everything Central Oregon has to offer, including bow hunting, fishing and camping. I also enjoy gardening and making jewelry. We have a yellow and chocolate lab who we adore, they pretty much go everywhere with us. I feel privileged to be part of this team where quality patient care is a top priority and look forward to providing hygiene services to our patients.
I just recently joined the Deschutes Dental team in August of 2016. I was born and raised in Bend and then moved away for a few years. My son and I returned about 4 years ago and we are so happy to be back! I’ve worked as a dental assistant for 13 years now and I enjoy helping our patients develop beautiful smiles and gain improved self-esteem. In my spare time I enjoy the variety of outdoor activities Bend has to offer.
I recently joined the team at Deschutes Dental Center in May of 2017 as part of the front office staff. I have been in the dental field for about 3 years now and I am so glad to have joined the team here! I grew up in Miami, and have now been living in Oregon for about a year. I have made Central Oregon my home along with my boyfriend and my two dogs. The four of us spend most of our time snowboarding, hiking, and enjoying our backyard. The part of my job I have enjoyed the most is interacting with the patients and seeing how happy they are with the quality work Dr. Freeman provides for them. Between the patients and the staff I feel like I have found a place where I belong!
Born and raised in the south I moved to Oregon almost 4 years ago and most recently to central Oregon. In April 2017 I became a part of the Deschutes Dental team as a hygienist. With over 8 years experience in dentistry what I love most is getting to know the patients, making them feel comfortable and helping everyone achieve optimum oral health. In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking, camping and yoga. I also love spending time with my husband and our two cocker spaniels.
