Marikka

Receptionist/Patient Care Coordinator

I enjoy helping patients schedule their appointments and answer any questions they may have about their insurance or treatment. I love meeting new patients and getting to know them better.

When I'm not at work, I volunteer for my church. I love travelling, being outside, going on hikes, and hanging out by the water with family and friends. I'm a huge fan of college football... Go Huskies!!

 

Janet

Office Manager

I assist patients in coordinating treatment plans and scheduling in order to help patients make the most of their insurance benefits. Working with people, seeing beautiful smiles, sharing stories, and making connections and friendships are just a few of the reasons I love my job! I love coming to work each day because I know I will be greeted with kindness, compassion, and warmth from my team members. This includes Dr. Hough, whose wonderful laugh can often be heard throughout the office.

At home, my husband of 30 + years and I have two married children and two beautiful granddaughters. I am a very happy person who enjoys being silly, gardening, koi fish, playing fantasy football, and spending time with my family.

 

Amy

Dental Assistant

I love working with our patients and assisting Drs. Hough and Kartje with a wide variety of their procedures. It’s so much fun to see our patients’ smiles transform! Our dedicated and experienced staff has made a commitment to give our patients the respect and care that they deserve. Our patients are our extended family and I am grateful for the opportunity to help provide service for all of their dental health needs.

I enjoy being a mother to my two boys. My family loves to travel, and we spend many long weekends at the Oregon Dunes. I love the east coast beaches and travel back whenever I can!

I started dental assisting in 1997, and I started at Riverside Dental in July 2016. I love working with the patients, and working with my doctors, and I love the variety of people that come through!

 

Cindy

Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant since 1984. I joined Riverside in 2016. I love establishing rapport with the patients, advising them and educating them about their dental health.
In my free time, I enjoy watching my two children playing sports at Camas High. My husband is a pilot, which allows our family to travel when we are free to do so. I play tennis at a local club, and in local USTA tennis matches.

Jennifer- "Jenn"

Registered Dental Hygienist

It is my goal to help our patients achieve a perfect state of dental health by providing gentle cleanings, periodontal therapy, and preventive care. Working one-on-one with patients, educating them on the importance of oral health, and seeing their improvements are just a few of the reasons I love my job. Watching as our patients grow and change over the years is such a joy, and one of the great benefits of working in dentistry.

I am originally from Texas and have lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1999. My husband, David, and I have a son, Noah, as well as our pets. We love spending time together as a family, especially when we’re hiking, camping, or boating. I'm also learning and loving photography!

 

Tom

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a hygienist for 16 years. I like to get to know people and help them to better understand how to maintain their oral health. I am also a musician and sound technician at our local church. I have a wife of 26 years and two wonderful kids.

 

Dana

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in the Camas/Washougal area. I graduated from Washougal High School in 2010. I graduated from WSUV in 2013, and went straight into hygiene school at Clark. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dog Luke (12 year old yellow lab). I love playing soccer, and I play weekly at the indoor arena. I love working as a dental hygienist and I am looking forward to spending many years helping patients achieve their oral health goals!
