Jackie
Dental Hygienist
I’ve been working as a dental hygienist since 2011. I started working at Inland Shores Family Dental as a dental assistant and assisted Dr. Peterson for three years. I then went back to school at Portland Community College, where I graduated with my Associates of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene.

What I love most about my job is working one-on-one with my patients. I value my job and my patients greatly. I’ve been married since 2007 to my wonderful husband, Chris and we have two beautiful little girls. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love running outdoors when the weather is good.

Heather
Dental Hygienist
As a Registered Dental Hygienist, I absolutely love working with patients. I graduated from Portland Community College’s dental hygiene program in 2009 and I have been working in the Salem/Keizer community since then.

I’ve worked at Inland Shores Family Dental since 2010. I feel very lucky to work with such a talented doctor and a friendly staff. Inland Shores is not only a place where the staff works diligently to provide exceptional patient care, but also strives to make it a fun place to be.

I married my best friend in 2002 and we have two amazing sons. I am very passionate about dental hygiene and enjoy opportunities when I can talk to patients about it.

Kelsey
Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. I graduated from Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I love working with people and what I love most about being a dental hygienist is the relationships I establish with my patients. I am passionate about helping people understand the importance of their oral health.

I married my high school sweetheart in 1999. We have two beautiful children. Today nothing gives me more joy than being a mom. I love hanging with my family, gardening, decorating and photography!

Amber
Dental Assistant
In 2006, I graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at Concorde College and I have been assisting since I graduated.

The best part of my job is the opportunity to get to know the patients and their families. When I am not at the office, I spend my free time with my husband and our three children. We love to spend time outdoors, camping and playing at the beach.

We love traveling together and spending time in Oregon’s beautiful outdoors. We have one son, Henry who brings more love and joy into our lives then we ever thought possible!
