I have worked for Hillside Dental Care for 25 years and have been in the dental profession for over 40 years. I grew up in Southern California, and after finishing Dental Assisting School; I began my career in the Business office. I settled in Oregon with my husband Craig to raise our family and continue my career in dentistry. I have enjoyed working with a committed caring team of professionals and especially loved watching the generations of families grow up in our practice.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, son, daughter-in-law and granddaughters Emmery and Blair. In my spare time I love reading, and flying off to visit with my extended family.
I have been at Hillside since 2009 and love being a part of a team that is warm, friendly and always professional. I started my dental career 2003 when my children started school and have found it to be a great fit for my family and I.
I am a native Oregonian and grew up locally. I have been blessed with 3 wild and crazy guys; Will 13, Sam 11 and my wonderful husband, Cliff. I enjoy all my boy's activities, football, basketball and school. As a family we enjoy spending a lot of time at our family cabin hiking, swimming, rafting and biking.
I started my career in dental assisting in 1998, after graduating from P.C.C. From working in pediatrics, general and cosmetic dentistry, I can say I love it all!
I have lived all over the US, but live the Pacific the best! (Being here the longest) I am Married and have two daughters, Leila and Shaida. They keep our family busy with sports and volunteer work I do.
Janise is from Utah, but has been in North Carolina for the past 12 years. She moved to the PNW to be closer to family. She is 5 of 6 kids and has 10 nieces and 3 nephews. Janise has been in the dental field for the past 14 years. She is also a member of the American Dental Assistants Association.
Janise loves helping people and making them smile. Since smiling is her favorite thing to do, she loves giving patients the smile they have always wanted.
Janise loves to travel and has been to brazil, Dominican Republic and Hungary. Her favorite holidays are her birthday and her half birthday. There is always a count down to these “holidays” in case you ever forget.
I attended Oregon State University and graduated from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1982 with a B.S. in Dental Hygiene. I have enjoyed working at Hillside Dental Care since 1986! Caring for patients and their specific needs as well as being a part of their dental team is a special aspect of my job that I love. I am also lucky to work with an outstanding group of committed individuals who care about the patients and their dental health.
I have two sons, Bradley and Adam both graduates of colleges in Oregon, so my husband and I are testing out the empty-nest idea with our Yorkie Terrier, Lily. In my free time I like to hike, read, garden, do all kinds of craft projects, and eventually do more traveling....
I started my education in my hometown in Southern Oregon. I finished as a dental hygienist at PCC in 2018. My passion is to fight the stigma of the dental office and make it an enjoyable experience. I’m very thankful to be working in this office with such friendly doctors and staff.
I’m an overall enthusiastic person and thoroughly enjoy making sure peoples mouths are taken care of for their overall health
I have a four year old boy named Bradley that keeps me on my toes while I am not at work along with my 8 year old boxer.
I was born and raised in Oregon. Moved to Idaho for college and attended BYU-Idaho were I graduated with an AS in Electrical Engineering. In 2005 I graduated from Idaho State University with a BS in Dental Hygiene. I love getting to know my patients and helping them with their overall health. I look forward to the friendships formed thru their regular visits.
We eventually moved back to Oregon 10yrs ago and have loved living in the Portland area raising my 5 kids. My oldest is 13yrs and youngest crazy boy is 4yrs old who keeps us all on our toes. When I am not at work I love to Salsa dance, snowboard, run, go on hikes, camping, beach trips or any outdoor adventure I can take my kids on.
