It is my smiling face which will greet you by name and welcome you to our practice. I handle appointment scheduling and reminders and am eager to answer any questions you might have about dental care.
I am certain you’ll enjoy (yes, enjoy!) your visits at Northwest Dental. Dr. Smart is an exceptional dentist who takes time to listen and learn what you need from him, and our team members are skilled, gentle, and friendly.
When not working, I love being with my best friend, my husband Byron (Motorcycle Santa). We’ve been married for more than 40 years and have three adult children and one three-legged German Shepherd, Jake. I enjoy gardening, going to the movies, and being with family and friends. I’m also a member of a local Old Car Club. And, on my days off in the summer – believe it or not – I drive heavy equipment!
Welcome! I’m the go-to person for everything related to the financial end of your dental care. I’ll work with you to find a payment arrangement that fits your budget and I’ll handle the insurance paperwork, too. I enjoy making sure you’re able to maximize your benefits and dealing with the insurance companies on your behalf.
At Northwest Dental, we all work toward the goal of giving you the best possible experience with the highest quality care. If there’s ever anything you need, please let us know: we want you to enjoy your time in our office!
My free-time is very family centered. I’m married and have three kids: two teens and a toddler. We enjoy going to the coast, love all of Oregon’s many lakes and rivers, and like working in our yard and just hanging out.
I graduated from OIT in Klamath Falls, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene. I am also restorative certified which means I can place fillings. Since joining the team in 2018, I have given patients a clean and healthy smile by cleaning their teeth and educating about good oral health. I enjoy interacting with all our patients and learning about their lives.
Northwest Dental is an upbeat and positive environment—one that I look forward to coming to every day! The staff is very welcoming and fun to be around. They are always striving to improve our patient care and have excellent teamwork.
I have been married for two years to my husband Zach and we are expecting our first baby boy in October. We also have an adorable German shorthair/Weimaraner named Wesson. He loves to fetch and run with me!
I look forward to meeting and helping you attain optimal dental health! I offer preventive care, including gentle cleanings, and a lot of education. I know the better you understand your unique oral health concerns the more empowered you are to take control of your smile’s health. Seeing a healthy mouth at a recall visit makes me smile!
Everyone at Northwest Dental is dedicated to providing the best care possible and building a relationship with you. We are serious about the work we do, and helping others, but don’t take ourselves too seriously!
In my free time you’ll often find me with my boyfriend, Rian. When home I like painting and drawing, and love escaping into a book. I also love to go camping, play pool, float the river, and listen to music, especially concerts and live performances.
Welcome to our office! I graduated from LBCC dental assisting program in 2005 and joined Northwest Dental in 2015. I assist Dr. Smart with treatment and make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible. There’s nothing better than seeing patients who are happy with their smiles!
I feel very fortunate to work at Northwest Dental. Not only do we have a lot of fun together, but we really do give patients quality dental care.
At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, daughter, and two dogs. We love being out on our boat or camping.
Hello! I attended Linn Benton C.C. Accredited Dental Assisting Program in 2005 and became a part of Northwest Dental in 2009. I am here to provide great care to our patients and assist Dr. Smart with anything he needs to create an outstanding patient experience. My greatest goal is to ensure our patients’ comfort so they leave with a smile!
Our office is a special place, where everyone is treated like family. Our team genuinely enjoys each other’s company—something I believe our patients can tell the moment they walk into the office.
I have been married to Nathan for 15 years, and have two boys, Aiden and Ezra, as well as two adorable family dogs. When I have free time, I enjoy the outdoors, working out, and coaching high school softball.
It’s my pleasure to help you during visits. I’ll bring you into the operatory, which I’ve sterilized and prepped, and make sure you’re comfortable in the chair. I’ll be by your side, assisting Dr. Smart while supporting you, and when we’re done I’ll provide homecare guidance. My biggest responsibility, outside of your comfort, is making sure you laugh at least a little at each visit!
We have a lighthearted atmosphere at Northwest Dental. You’ll hear a lot of laughter and always be surrounded by real smiles. All of us thrive on the friendships we develop with our patients and look forward to getting to know you!
Outside of the office, my family keeps me busy. I’m married and have three teenage boys. I do make time to cook for family and friends and enjoy get-togethers at our home. I am also active at my church, helping with the children’s and women’s programs. I really like being around people!
