My name is Amanda, I’m a dental hygienist here at Fountain Valley Dental. I’ve been in dentistry for 10+ years. I started out as a hygienist assistant and sterilizer before becoming a dental hygienist. I enjoy what I do because I get to build relationships with patients while helping them seek oral health. I got into dentistry because I always loved going to the dentist, and I wanted to help others feel the same way. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my Husband Jake and our 2 dogs Hank and Harlee. We love to spend time with our family, being outdoors on our property, hiking, hunting, and fishing.
I have been in the dental field for a few years now as a dental hygienist. My background with healthcare is working with many diverse populations and love the multi-cultural experiences in this career field. I got into dentistry because of a passion about well-rounded healthcare. Love to spend time with friends, family and going on hikes with my dog Laila and will soon be welcoming a new boxer puppy to the family.
When I decided to become a dental assistant it was after my husband was in a serious accident and lost 8 of his front teeth. The dentist was able to restore his smile with bone grafts, implants and crowns! I was so amazed! I attended Apollo College and graduated in 1996. My husband and I have 2 adult daughters, both we raised here in Molalla. The oldest is married with two children and I love being a grandma! The youngest is a CNA and works here in town. Travis and I have been married since 1995. I enjoy all outdoors! I race my Monte Carlo in the 1/4 mile drag races every summer. Fastest I have got my car to go is 11.51 @ 119.9mph! It is the most awesome rush!! Travis and I enjoy taking our jeep up in the snowy hills and drive around with our dog Roman.
Hello, I’m Vanessa. I just graduated dental assisting school. I’ve been with the team at Fountain Valley Dental since I did my externship over the summer. I wanted to be a dental assistant to ease people’s anxiety at the dentist; growing up both my brother and I were terrified of the dentist. After I had a great experience with an assistant, I knew it was something I wanted to do. I also became an assistant to educate others on the importance of oral health. When I’m not assisting Dr. Ben, I’m waitressing at a retirement home in Wilsonville. I’ve been doing that for about 3 years now. I’m super fortunate to have two jobs that are rewarding and that I get to work with such amazing people.
Both my parents are from Mexico. I’m the first generation to be born here. I’m also the first in my family (both sides) to graduate from college. My family is my biggest support along side my boyfriend. I wouldn’t be half the person I am today without them. On my free time I enjoy doing makeup. I’ve done makeup for my friends for their special events (prom, weddings, etc). I also spend time watching movies with my brother and being with my dog Lucy.
