I love getting to know our patients and always encourage them to care for their dental needs so they can keep their teeth for a life time and love their smile.

Over the years I have served as the Oregon Dental Hygienist’s Association President and was the first Dental Hygienist in Oregon to serve on the Oregon Board of Dentistry. I served as an examiner for the Western Regional Examining Board for over twenty years. I enjoy working with Dr. Raven and Dr. Thurn and feel that our team works hard to ensure patient satisfaction.

I have four grown children and six grandchildren. My kids grew up in Springfield and graduated from Thurston High School. Eight years ago my husband and I moved back to our family farm in Junction City where I grew up- Hentze Farm. Besides working I enjoy traveling, bicycling, hiking, scrapbooking, and spending time with friends. And, of course, I cannot write my own bio without saying, “GO BEAVERS!!!”
