Meet the Team



Registed Dental Hygienist
I graduated from the Clark College Dental Hygiene program in 1981. I have been treating patients at our office since 2006. I love being a part of our amazing dental team. I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.


Registed Dental Hygienist

I came to West Vancouver Dental in December of 2015. The enthusiastic and genuine concern for each person who entrusts us their oral health care needs is something that I have felt honored to be a part of.

Before joining Dr. Melany’s team, I had my own business serving people in adult family care homes and assisted living facilities. I enjoy hiking and tending a rose garden, as well as spending time with family and friends.



Registed Dental Assistant
My name is Janie. Some of my favorite things are going riding on my horse and snuggling on the couch watching scary movies with my dogs. I have a Corgi and an English Cream Retriever. You’ll often find me talking about them and all the crazy things they do. When I am not at home with my dogs, I am often out watching either a football game or basketball game. One of my favorite things to say to the rest of the office is "Good morning Sunshine" with a cup of coffee in hand. I like to start the day off with a positive attitude and make others smile.


Office Manager & Treatment/Financial Coordinator

I have had the honor of being in the wonderful field of dentistry since 1989. I have worked in nearly every aspect of the dental office and am able to use my skills and knowledge wherever it is needed. I enjoy getting to know our patients and taking the time to help them understand their treatment and address any concerns with the insurance and financial aspect of their dental care.

I am so thankful to be a part of such an amazing dental team of wonderful gals! I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my 2 children and 2 bonus children and love music, whether listening to it or performing it myself.



Front Office Receptionist
I’m Linda and I have worked at this practice since 2007. I enjoy being in the front office, meeting new patients, introducing them to our establishment, and greeting all our wonderful patients throughout the year. Aside from scheduling, I assist in billing and assisting the hygiene coordinator and the financial adviser as needed. I feel very fortunate to work with such a dedicated team. When we are working, we give it our all, and when we have the opportunity to meet socially, we definitely give it our all! It’s a unique situation, not to be taken lightly and we feel so lucky. As for my time off, I love spending time with my grandboys, yes plural, they are all boys. And the bonus is that Cammi, John and Emerson have moved to Salem from Aspen. I'm so fortunate to watch that lil' guy develop into a true toddler. Gardening is still fun. Reading took a back seat to my new Djembe, a sweet little drum that just takes a beating!!! All in all, life is just great!
