Meet the Team
Ever since I can remember, I was always drawn to beautiful smiles and pearly white teeth. In 2009 I was hired onto my first dental team, where I spent the greater part of a decade as an insurance specialist. Fast forward to today, I have the privilege of doing the things I enjoy most at New Leaf Dental Care.
When I'm not in the office, you'll find me tending to my garden or spending time with my husband and our cat, Grumpy. Having grown up in the Pacific North West, I enjoy the outdoor activities it has to offer, with Mt. Rainier hiking being a top favorite.
My name is Julie. I'm the treatment coordinator for New Leaf Dental Care. I have been a treatment coordinator for the past 15 years. I enjoy helping patients schedule and understand their treatment options. In my down time I love to spend time with my family and travel to tropical destinations with my husband of 35 years.
Patient Care Specialist
My name is Samantha. I have been with New Leaf Dental Care for 10 years. I have played many roles at the office from assistant, front desk to treatment coordinator. I love working with patients and making their dental experience an exceptional one. In my spare time you can usually find me camping or at the beach with my husband and my two littles.
Patient Care Specialist
My name is Renee and I am one of the patient care specialists here at New Leaf Dental Care. I started my dental career as a dental assistant after graduating from Portland Community College and have evolved to the front office. I truly enjoy interacting with each and every patient that comes through the door. You can expect to be greeted with a big smile and for me to find ways to relate to you and our patients with compassion, humor and getting to know you all on a personal level.
In my free time I really enjoy: cooking, crafting and spending time with family.
My name is Samantha and I graduated form Mt. Hood Dental Hygiene program in 2014. I am a mother to two beautiful girls, and I love spending time with them. As a family, we love to go to the zoo, playing outside, and going on daily evening walks. Working at New Leaf is wonderful and I love seeing and
taking care of my patients every day.
I have been in the dental field for over 15 years. Starting out at the front desk and migrating into
assisting, I fell in love with patient care and realized a dental profession is where I would like to make my mark. I pursued my education and become a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2010.
I was a hesitant patient in my youth and care that my patients are comforted and made at ease in my
chair. I blend my experience in periodontal care and my focus on a patient first experience in each
appointment. My focus is for each patient to leave my chair with a clear understanding of their care plan and goals for their dental health.
When not in the dental operatory, I like to spend time in the garden or working on building projects around the house. I also enjoy camping and traveling by motorcycle with my husband.
I graduated from Clark College with my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2021. Prior to becoming a hygienist, I was an assistant for a number of years, so it has been nice to be a part of both the restorative and preventative sides of dentistry. Your smile is so important, both functionally and socially, and I am so glad to be a part of a team that will do their best to assist you with all of your dental health needs.
Hi my name is Jessica and I've been a Dental Assistant at New Leaf for 7 years. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Noah. In our free time we enjoy outdoor adventures together with our mini dachshund, Pepper.
My Name is Nataliya but I also go by Nat. I've been an assistant at New Leaf Dental Care for 3 years. In my free time I love spending time with my family and spoil my nieces and nephews. I also love going on road trips.
I was a restaurant server for over 10 years, and a dog trainer for 4 years. Then went back to school to be a dental assistant, where I found my calling. I am very compassionate about helping people feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations such as coming to the dentist. I feel laughing and having a great time is the cure for anxiety. Outside work I love all outdoor activities with my husband and my three awesome dogs who join us on all our adventures.
More information coming soon.
