I graduated from Rogue Community College as a Dental Assistant in 1994 and moved to Eugene right after graduation. I worked for another dentist for one year before coming to Dr. Robinson's practice in June 1995. I worked with Dr. Robinson for the first six years as his full time assistant and now I am his office manager. I enjoy camping, swimming, fishing and spending time with my family and friends.
Having graduated from the Dental Assisting program at Lane Community College in 1980, I started out as an assistant/receptionist until Dr. Robinson took over in Oct 1989. I then became his front office receptionist and have been greeting patients ever since. I enjoy working with patients and seeing that their dental needs are met. Outside of work my hobbies are bowling, ceramics and enjoying deep sea fishing.
As Dr. Robinson's newest employee, I have been his full time Expanded Functions Dental Assistant/Clinical Manager since 2004. I graduated from Lane Community College in 2002 and received my E.F.D.A, Radiology Proficiency, Sealant and Soft Reline Certifications. The dental field has taught me the importance of patient communication and being dedicated to your utmost comfort. When I'm not working, my husband and I enjoy camping, gardening, and watching our children play sports.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Robinson. I graduated from Lane Community College in Dental Hygiene in 1982 and have worked for Dr. Robinson since 1990. I have lived and worked in Oregon all my life. I enjoy helping patients improve and maintain their dental health. Outside of work, I like spending time outdoors with family and friends.
I got my first start in the dental field as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant back in 1986. Ten years later, I graduated from the hygiene program at Lane Community College and have been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since then. So far, 19 years and counting have been right here with Dr. Robinson.
I'm passionate about what I do and want my patients to feel good about the comprehensive care my team provides. I'm active in area study clubs and enjoy researching the latest trends in my industry. The best part of my job is when my patients leave our office with healthier gums, clean teeth and a bright smile.
Growing up on a farm in Western Idaho, I'm no stranger to the outdoors. In fact, in my spare time, you can find me gardening, skiing, fishing or simply enjoying the Pacific Northwest. I also enjoy baking, and if you ask my kids, I'd bet an apple pie brownie they'd say I was pretty good at it too!
