Hi my name is Vanessa. I am the front office here at Wellness Springs Dental. I enjoy providing patients with a warm and welcoming first impression of our office. I was born in Chico, CA. I moved to Oregon my sophomore year of high school and fell in love with the Willamette Valley. When I’m not at the office I enjoy spending time with my 2 year old. We love the outdoors and spending lots of time at the park!
Jean, Dental Hygienist
I was born in Brazil but have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my life. I attended Lane Community College and graduated in 1997 with an Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene, and have worked continually since then in various dental offices. I have also done volunteer work with Medical Teams International, and in August 2013, I joined the Wellness Springs Dental office to help provide excellent dental care to the Salem community.
I am very passionate about my career, and I believe that every person is unique and has the right to be treated with respect, kindness, and compassion. I stay current in my profession with active membership in a local study club, by subscribing to professional journals and attending lectures and seminars. Outside of the dental office I enjoy spending time with friends and with my daughter who is also a Dental Hygienist.
Heather, Dental Hygienist
My name is Heather. I grew up in the small town of Coquille, and attended Dental Hygiene school at OIT in Klamath Falls. My husband, dog and I moved to the area to pursue his Engineering degree at OSU. I entered into corporate dentistry while he finished school, but I didn’t feel it provided the patient interaction and connection that I went into dentistry for. I recently joined the staff at Wellness Springs Dental and really enjoy the team dynamic we have here. I love being able to give patients the confidence and happiness that a healthy smile provides. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my niece and nephews, walking my dog and doing anything active outdoors. I look forward to meeting you!
