Jennifer Miles, Dental Hygenist
At 14 years old I decided I wanted to be a Dental Hygienist because I personally dealt with periodontal issues. My hygienist was a compassionate, caring teacher of how to help correct my dental concerns. Being more confident with my smile changed my life and I knew I wanted to help others being as confident with their smile. At age 19 I made two wonderful decisions in my life. One decision was to begin dating my husband of 31 years. The other decision was starting my career in the dental field. I have worked for Dr. Kim for 10 years. He keeps the dental field exciting and new with his love of technology and continued education.
I am a proud mother of 2 adult daughters who are the joy of my life. On the weekends I enjoy hiking, camping, and any other outdoor activity. As recent empty nesters, my husband and I just purchased a teardrop trailer and plan on getting to know the Oregon and Washington area well.
Madison Cochran, Dental Assistant
Either by chance or design, I was meant to be in the dental field. I grew up in a household full of dental enthusiasts. My mother is and has been a dental assistant for over 25 years, and going to work with her as much as possible when I was a young girl only interested me more and grew my love for the dental profession. Many years later, here I am now following in her footsteps. I graduated from Charter College with my dental assisting certificate and planted roots into the wonderful dental office I am at today. Working as a dental assistant I get the opportunity to not only help build that confidence of my patients but I get the chance to help people achieve that beautiful smile they have always wanted.
A little about myself is that I am a proud fur momma of a 12-year-old pug and an 8-month-old bunny. My pug has always wanted to be that big dog she dreamed of and because of her new housemate Nora, the bunny, she is a Great Dane. On the weekends I love baking and finding new activities and food spots in the Vancouver/Portland area.
Tessa, Office Manager
I have been in the dental field for 17 years. In those 17 years, I have worked as a Hygiene Assistant, Patient Care Coordinator, Insurance Specialist and now, my current position as Office Manager. One of the things I love about being in the dental field is helping patient’s obtain their perfect smile. I enjoy being a part of a professional dental team that provides exceptional care.
I am a proud mother of two boys who brighten my life daily. On the weekends I enjoy watching sports, outdoor activities, attending concerts, and spending time with family and friends.
