Meet The Team




Office Manager / Treatment Coordinator

I am the office manager and treatment coordinator. My goal is to make every day efficient and enjoyable. I’ve loved Orthodontics ever since I had braces as a teenager. Dentistry is my passion and I really enjoy seeing all the smiling faces! Outside of the office, you will find me spending time with my family, shopping or boating & waterskiing.


Amanda H.

Patient Care Coordinator

I am one of the patient care coordinators and my job is to make sure you have a great dental experience from start to finish. Part of that involves making sure patients are well informed regarding their dental treatment and insurance. I chose Pediatrics because I love kids. Dentistry, in general, has always fascinated me especially with all the new advances they are making every day! I enjoy running, reading and spending time with my family – my husband, our 2-year-old daughter Harper, and our 9-year-old son Kingston.



Patient Care Coordinator

I am one of the Patient Care Coordinators in the office,  I help you and your family feel welcome at each visit. I chose dentistry because oral care is a large factor when it comes to overall health. I also love seeing kids excited to come to the dentist and the smiles when they leave. I love spending time with family, exploring the outdoors, playing games, and just relaxing in general.



Orthodontic / Pediatric Assistant

My role in the office is mostly as an orthodontic assistant, however, I love spending time on the pediatric side as well. I’ve always loved going to the dentist and orthodontist since I was little. I enjoy helping kids learn to love their smiles! When I’m not in the office, I spend time outside – walking, hiking, and skiing. I also like to be with my husband, friends, and sweet pup, Gus!



Orthodontic Assistant & Social Media

My main role in the office is as an Orthodontic Assistant, however, I also help manage our Social Media presence. I enjoy seeing the changes in the smiles of our patients as they progress through Orthodontic treatment. Outside of the office, I enjoy hiking, traveling, my cats (Charmin & Simba), volleyball, and all Marvel Movies!



Orthodontic Assistant

My role in the office is an Orthodontic Assistant. I’ve always loved going to the dentist as a child. I love seeing patients before and after treatment, and how the changes affect people in a positive manner. I love hanging out with my hubby Stephen and all of our pets. We have a dog named Tia and 2 cats that require a lot of attention.



Pediatric / Orthodontic Assistant

I am a Pediatric and Orthodontic Dental Assistant, so you will see me working with both Dr. Miller and Dr. Nelson. I had braces when I was younger and I really enjoyed my experience. At the age of 13, I decided to work in the field of dentistry. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family & friends. I also love watching a good movie cuddled up with my dog, Maizy.



Pediatric / Orthodontic Assistant

I am Dr. Nelson’s and Dr. Miller’s pediatric and orthodontic expanded function dental assistant. My job is to educate my patients and make them as comfortable as possible while assisting with treatment. I chose dentistry because I love improving other people’s lives and gaining new knowledge every day! Part of my soul lives on the Oregon coast and there’s nothing I love more than going to the beach with my family (except maybe some really delicious food!)



Pediatric Dental Assistant

I am a Dental Assistant with the Pediatric team here in the office. I chose to pursue dentistry to be able to create a fun and safe space for patients. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, puzzles and board games.


Megan P.

Pediatric Dental Assistant

I am one of Dr. Nelson’s Pediatric Dental Assistants. I chose to work in the field of dentistry because I love science and I love working with people, especially kids! Outside of the office, you’ll find me cooking and watching movies with my husband, trying new games with friends & family, and country western dancing. I graduated from OSU, so I’m always ready to cheer on the Beavers!
