Kim- Registered Dental Assistant

Kim has been working in this office for an amazing 15 years!    Because of those years and her deep loyalty to the practice, Kim has built many warm relationships with her incredible patients.  She was very young when the original owner of the practice took her under his wing.  Since then she has become an asset to her profession with her calming nature and excellent attention to detail.  It is obvious why our nervous patients request Kim’s sensitivity during their dental visits!   Kim and her husband, Mike are raising  two beautiful children, Christian  and  Codi.  Kim has a close and supportive family and is always willing to give one of them a helping hand.   They are lucky, as are we, to have her as part of our TEAM!   Kim can be reached at kim@l3dentalcare.com

Beka - Registered Dental Hygienist

Beka joined our office in 2000, shortly after graduating from Mt. Hood Community College’s Dental Hygiene program.  If your teeth have been cleaned by Beka in the last year and a half, you can be sure that she brought out recent pictures of the pride and joy in her life Madisyn Elizabeth.    Besides Madisyn keeping her busy, she and her husband Reuben are active in their church group.  They often go on road trips with friends, including the wine country of the Willamette Valley.  Anyone who knows Beka knows she loves her shopping adventures.   In the summer, you can find her enjoying crabbing trips to the beach with her family, and hunting for the freshest local berries.  She is an excellent hygienist, skilled and genuinely concerned for her patient’s oral health.  She is a gentle communicator with a great sense of humor.  Beka can be reached at beka@l3dentalcare.com

Mary - Front Office Coordinator

Mary studied art in college and still actively pursues her love of photography & painting.   If she had a degree, it would be from the “Life’s too short” school.   Following childhood dreams, Mary spent as much time as possible traveling to various parts of the world.  She decided to settle down in 1996, when she married Tom and started her family.  She proudly raises two daughters, Haley and Lindsay.   She helps coach their softball team and loves to spend the summers watching them in the Jr. Tennis league.  She’s an accomplished cook and very proud of her Italian/Swedish heritage. 

Her dental career started when she decided to work a couple of days for her brother in law Dale DeWan’s practice.   A couple of days turned into a few, then four, and as they say, the rest is history.  Mary truly enjoys helping our patients and always extends a warm greeting to them.  Each patient is like family to her.  We are glad to have her around to make us laugh at life and at ourselves.  Mary can be contacted at mary@l3dentalcare.com
