MEET THE TEAM!
Stephanie ~ Front Office/ Insurance Coordinator
I am thrilled to join the team here at Mountain View! While spending most of the last 13 years in 911 dispatch, I come with many years of experience in dental scheduling, insurance coordination and billing as well as direct patient care. I have worked in many different offices over the years including Oral-Maxillofacial offices, General and Pediatric dentistry. I enjoy helping patients to understand their benefits and creating plans to reach total oral health.
My husband and I have a daughter and a son who are both in grade school. I also am the proud stepmom to three older boys who have their own families, making me a young grandmother, which is amazing! While spending time as a family is priority #1, I also enjoy traveling, baking, fly fishing, hunting and camping.
I have worked at MVD since 1997 and have been in dentistry since 1976. Graduating from my dental assisting program, I received an Associate Degree in Science. I have enjoyed working with a committed and caring team of professionals. I especially love watching the generations of families grow up through the years in our practice.
I moved to Oregon in 1996 with my husband and two children. I have two children; Dustin and Chelsea who are both adults now. When I’m not working I enjoy being outside, working on my home and spending time with my family and my dog, Wilson.
I am a native Oregonian, born and raised in the Portland area. My dental career started in 1990. I was fortune enough to work chair side with my father for a number of my assisting years until he retired. I joined Mountain View Dental in 2007. Being part of a team and caring for patients and their specific needs is an aspect of my job that I love.
In my free time I like spending time with my family, reading, cooking and gardening.
I have lived in the NW all my life growing up in the beautiful Hood River Valley. I attended college at Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls where I graduated in 1985. Though currently semi-retired, I have enjoyed working at Mountain View Dental since 1998 and have developed some wonderful friendships with staff and patients. Being a “people person” I genuinely care for the needs of my patients and find the opportunity to educate them on their optimal dental health very rewarding.
During my career I have taken time away to have three children, a daughter and two sons, the two older of which are married with children and the youngest is finishing up his last years of college at Portland State University studying Architecture. After 23 years of raising our family in the Banks area we became “empty nesters” so we decided to downsize our home and property. My husband and I embarked on a great adventure of building our new home in the quaint little town of Carlton. When not working on our home we love to travel as well as spend time with friends and family.
After graduating from Pacific University’s DH program in 2008, I started working at Mountain View Dental. All these years, I have enjoyed getting to know my patients. I love helping them with their oral health needs.
My husband and I have two adorable daughters who bring us so much joy! We also love on our two furry children (lab and dachshund) and practice Archery in our spare time.
I have been in dentistry for over 15 year, 10 of those in hygiene. I truly love getting to know my patients and look forward to meeting new people. I feel very lucky to have joined the awesome team here at Mountain View Dental!
My husband and I have an almost 3 year old son (Everett) who keeps us on our toes and entertained constantly. I enjoy practicing yoga and recently joined a women’s rugby league! I love to laugh, spend time outside and explore new wineries.
