Margo

Front Office

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.

Kim

Dental Hygienist

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 have been a Dental Hygienist since 2003, after graduating from Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls.  I worked full time for eight years but now enjoy the benefits that part-time provides: more time & energy to focus on my family & home. 

I have been working with the Hillside Dental team since October 2011 and they are great to work with. They are professional, friendly and are deeply committed to our patients' well-being.
