Meet the Team

Desirae - Office Manager

Desirae added to the family in May of 2023 and shortly moved up into the office manager position in September of 2023. She is dedicated to making every interaction a happy one and loves to help guide the practice to its fullest potential. She received her bachelor’s degree from Oregon Institute of Technology and has been in the dental field since 2019. She brings with her a passion for interacting with patients while helping them navigate their dental treatment needs.

She loves spending time in the aisles of Powell’s Books and setting up her hammock by a river to read in. 

Rosie - Hygienist

Rosie joined the family in the winter of 2022. She received her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 2008 and has been practicing ever since. She enjoys working with a wide demographic and loves to spend time volunteering to help the underserved portions of our population. She uses those volunteer opportunities to act as an educator to help people understand the impact oral health has on their overall well-being. She prides herself on being thorough and you will leave her chair with a truly gleaming smile.

In her spare time, she loves being with her husband and five kids. When she’s not busy with sports, Cub Scouts, or walking her golden retriever, you can often find her in the kitchen where she has both a gift and passion for cooking. 

Kade - Hygienist

Kade came to the family in April of 2023. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Institute of Technology. Since he was a child, Kade was that kid with the perfect handwriting, being highlighted for his thorough attention to detail. This trait has carried through his life and transfers to his care of patients. His goal is to provide comfortable, intentional, evidence-based care.

In his free time, he’ll be perusing the depths of human nutrition research, on a run, or playing basketball. His dream is to operate an egg farm in the years to come.

Suzanne - Assistant EFDA

Suzanne came to us over six years ago after a career as a CNA and running her own private daycare center. She started out as our sterile technician and over the years she has continued to grow with our practice. Suzanne worked to earn her certification as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant and is a pillar of our practice.

Her hobbies are wide-ranging from home fermentation to all things fitness and exercise. Our patients love her high energy and cheerful smile!

Karin - Assistant

Karin discovered a love for dentistry at a young age while helping in her father’s dental office on the Oregon Coast. We were lucky enough to add her to the family in March of 2023. She studied microbiology and completed her associate’s degree in arts and sciences. She has an expanded functions degree in Illinois, Utah, and Oregon. Karin is committed to lifelong learning and is passionate about delivering high-quality dental care.

When not at work, you can find her with friends and family up in the mountains or out on the beach. She enjoys reading, crafting, and being outdoors. “I love helping patients achieve and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles!”

Jasmine - Assistant

Jasmine joined the family in September of 2022. Her dental career began in her home state of Utah, as a sterile technician in a fast-paced oral surgery practice. She was there for three years prior to moving to Portland and bringing her positive energy and bright smile to our team.

Growing up, Jasmine spent most of her time participating in a variety of team sports, basketball being her favorite. These days, Jasmine spends time in her Jeep off roading through the beautiful Pacific Northwest, or rollerblading through the city. On rainy days, she likes to craft and make resin and floral art.

Kristalynn - Marketing Manager

Kristalynn originally came on as a sterile technician in July of 2021. Her first experience in the dental field found her quickly expanding beyond the role of a clinical support member. She began helping in a broad range of areas and found a passion for dental marketing and advertising.

Her ongoing goal is to continue to improve our website and marketing approach with a focus on becoming as accessible to patients as possible. In the few hours she’s not studying for school or working she likes to use her creativity to bake treats, craft, or head out to the beach.

Debbie - Administrative Assistant

Debbie joined our front office family in May of 2022. She started working in the dental field while in high school, as an assistant. Her clinical experience adds to a comprehensive understanding of dental procedures and processes. Debbie is always willing to answer any questions you may have about our services available.

In her free time, she loves to be with her grandchildren, crocheting, and being creative any chance she gets.
