Meet Our Team at Wark Dental Group McMinnville
Excellent People for Excellent Dentistry
Airan, Patient Coordinator
With her independent and joyful spirit, Airan serves our patients brilliantly. Ask her anything about your appointment, payments, or our hours, and she’ll know just what to tell you. She’s got a terrific sense of humor and we appreciate how comfortable she makes our patients. She’s attracted to work in dentistry because she loves to help people. She’s working toward her bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management, and thinks anyone would benefit from picking up a copy of The 5 Love Languages.
Billy, Office Manager
An accomplished and hardworking professional, Billy manages the day-to-day operations of our front office. He takes care of the accounting for the office and helps patients make payment plans that work for them. He is proud to be part of such a great team, and of the loyalty demonstrated by the patient base. He studied to become a teacher, but fell in love with a dental student and dentistry instead. When he’s not in the office, you’ll catch him watching or coaching his children’s sports games, or playing golf.
Jerri, Certified Dental Assistant
Helpful, patient, and kind, Jerri is one of our wonderful dental assistants. She loves our patients as she loves her own friends and family and is honored to be able to help people every day. She’s been in dentistry for 30 years, and when she’s not serving our patients, she can be found in her garden, at her small farm, or on the golf course.
Leslie, Dental Hygienist
Leslie loves her job because she gets to take care of people all day long. She also loves it because it provides a wonderful work-life balance, so she can spend a lot of time with her family. She has worked in dentistry for 15 years, all of which have been with this practice. We truly appreciate her creative, compassionate spirit. When she’s not in the office, she enjoys reading, crafts, and being with her children.
Mandie, Certified Dental Assistant
Mandie’s positive energy is as much of a force as she is. We love having her in the office, and we are proud to share her enthusiasm for the kind of relationship building and attention to detail we practice in our office. Mandie loves keeping things light around the office, and takes pleasure in making sure the office is clean and enjoyable for everyone.
Teresa, Dental Hygienist
Hailing from Oregon, Teresa is a veteran of both dentistry and the Navy. She has been working in dentistry for about 40 years and has been with our practice for 25. She loves her colleagues and her patients. If she wasn’t a hygienist, she would like to be a courtesy greeter at Roth’s Fresh Market.
Tonya, Dental Assistant
Born and raised in Florida, I am new to Oregon. I moved here with my husband Nick, who just completed 6 years in with the Navy, and had a son soon after named Curtis. I now enjoy taking care of my boisterous son and spending time with family. I am enjoying what Oregon has to offer. Kayaking, camping, fishing, hiking and just enjoying life to name a few. I have taken an interest in gardening and just being out in the sun. Being an assistant in Florida for over 6 years I have grown to love the field and the people I meet because of it.
