Dr. Melany Mallett

Dr. Melany Mallett was raised in a small town in Eastern Oregon. She fell in love with dentistry while working as a dental assistant in high school. Following high school, she attended Oregon Institute of Technology and received a bachelor degree in dental hygiene.

After working as a dental hygienist for four years, Dr. Mel decided, along with the support of her husband and family, to advance her education. She attended Oregon Health & Science University and graduated with a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry degree. Providing comfortable, quality dentistry in a pleasant atmosphere is a priority to Dr. Mel.

One of her favorite things is interacting with patients. She enjoys working with all age groups and receives great satisfaction in helping patients improve their overall oral health.

Dr. Mel is an active member in the Clark County Dental Association, Washington State Dental Association, American Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Mel is married to her husband, Gavin, and they have one young son Emmett and two fur babies (dogs). Her free time is usually spent outdoors with friends and family. She also enjoys snowboarding and curling up with a good book. She enjoys donating her time and has been an active participant in the ADA the Give Kids A Smile event, Medical Teams International, and local Compassion clinics.
