I am the Dental Assistant Program Faculty Instructor for the labs and clinical portion. I have been with the Dental Assistant program at Linn Benton Community College since 2015. I completed my Dental Assisting training at Chemeketa Community College in 1999 and bring over 22 years of experience. I really enjoy teaching and being on the educational side of the Dental Field. I have worked in both private practice and group practice Dental Offices and bring a lot of skills, experience, and knowledge. My goal is to give the students the proper tools, confidence, and essential skills to be successful Dental Assistants. It is very rewarding and exciting to watch the students grow from the beginning of the year to graduation, and then onto successful careers as Dental Assistants!
