I have been working at Redmond Dental Group for over 35 years. First as a dental assistant and for the last 20 years as a dental hygienist. Helping patients have the best experience possible is our number one priority at RDG. I feel fortunate to have been allowed to assist patients with their dental health over the years. In my personal time I am passionate about competing in cutting horse events, and have many other hobbies.
I have lived in Central Oregon and worked with Dr. Max for 10 years and in the dental field for 15. When I’m not working my time is spent with my family enjoying hiking, floating the river and summers on the back of the bike.
My favorite part of my job is working in a fast-paced environment with such a friendly staff; we all get along very well. Max is such a great leader and we have all become a family. I’ve worked here for 10yrs and I really feel like part of this team. I’m upbeat with a good attitude and strive to be a friendly face that our patients can count on.
I have worked in the administration side of dentistry for Dr. Higbee for the past 18 years. Redmond Dental Group is a family-oriented practice, and I appreciate the wonderful service our doctors and staff provide to the people in our community. Growing up here in Redmond, I have always loved the outdoors, and can often be found snowmobiling and hiking with my husband.
Meeting new patients, learning about their lives, and spending time with established patients, is great. They all feel like family to me, as they do to my coworkers, and everyone here looks forward to a day filled with chances to talk, learn, and laugh. We really like our patients and value the friendships that we have with them. Here, the emphasis is always on doing our best for our patients, all of the time. As for my personal life, my husband and I have a young child. We love being together, especially exploring the great outdoors. We like camping and hiking most of all.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I’ve been with this practice for more than 18 years and have worked in dentistry for more than 33. Seeing all the changes in technology and treatment options, especially the painless treatments we can now offer, has been incredible. I am proud of the fact that we provide a safe, welcoming environment for our patients, and that even those who are scared about seeing a dentist leave here with a smile. My personal life revolves around my husband, Jon, and our three sons, Rob, Dave, and TJ. I love watercolor painting, gardening, and traveling. In fact, I’ve been to Africa, twice. I’m also an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers. Each year I throw a great Super Bowl party for family and friends.
Working one-on-one with our amazing patients, learning about their lives, and helping them achieve bright and healthy smiles, is incredibly rewarding. Here, our doctors and our staff always put our patients’ needs and comfort above all. You are treated with respect and we genuinely want to make sure you’re happy with the treatment you receive. In my personal life, I am the proud parent of one son and one amazing grandchild. I am very active when not in the office and enjoy being outside. I love camping, fishing, hunting, or better yet, doing all three! I also try to find the time to travel.
I am so proud to say I am a part of the team at Redmond Dental Group. I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work in such a great environment doing a job I love. Every patient is so unique in their own way, and I enjoy spending time with them to get to know them. Everyone at RDG works together as one big family, all with the same goal in mind: striving for each patient to have a dental visit that exceeds expectations. I have loved living in Oregon my entire life. My free time revolves around my two daughters, family, and friends. I also volunteer at my church and prepare meals to feed the homeless.
I am so grateful to be a part of Redmond Dental Group. I enjoy the amazing patients and the people I work with. Working at a place that is so positive and fun doesn’t make it feel like work. I have always loved helping others and knew dental hygiene was the job for me. Making people feel good about their smile or making them feel at ease are just some of the aspects of this job that I love. When I am not at work I can be found mountain biking, running along the river trail, or playing with my dog.
I love helping our doctors from chairside as they treat our patients. I provide reassurance and a comforting smile to our more timid patients and I love setting them at ease. Seeing their smiles once their treatment is finished is great. It is always fast, effective, and painless! This is a very caring environment and we love working together, making a positive difference for our patients. In my home life, I keep busy with my three children. Every weekend we go on a nature hike while I teach them Spanish. I also work with our local Latin community helping them to understand public assistance and how to ask for help when they need it.
Each person at this office has something unique to contribute. We care for one another, respect each other, and all strive to make a difference in the lives of our patients. The connections that are made and the conversations that are shared are some of the best parts of working here at RDG. I am one of six children and have two wonderful kids of my own. I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, reading, and spending time with my family.
Each of our patients is unique and we treat them as the individual that they are. That means we listen, we care, and we respect their unique concerns and points of view. Helping our patients throughout their visit, talking with them, explaining what’s going to happen during their exam or treatment, allows me to make sure they have a good experience. I love that! When I’m not at work, I enjoy BBQ’s, going shopping, curling up with a good book, or heading outside for camping and hunting. I’ve been part of the team for nearly 7 years now and I still love coming to work everyday!
Each day, I get to meet and help amazing people. By putting their needs first and making sure that we have a schedule that works with their lifestyle, I can make their lives less stressful. We offer treatment choices and payment options, so they are able to get the care that they need, when they need it. That’s a very good feeling. Outside of work, my husband Paul and I have three children, Mike, Evan, and Kai. I enjoy gardening, running, and staying active. It’s been my pleasure to work for Dr. Higbee for 22 years.
I consider the team at Redmond Dental Group to be like my second family. We all love and support each other; I am so grateful to work at such a wonderful office with wonderful people. The best part of working here is seeing the smiles on our patients’ faces when they’ve improved their oral health and have had a positive dental appointment! I have lived in Central Oregon for over 18 years. My time outside the office is spent reading, camping, hanging out with my family, playing with my puppy, Ross, and spending time with my boyfriend, Cory.
My work brings me into contact with wonderful people every day. While my coworkers are great and our doctors are the best, it is our patients who make our office so incredible. We really are like a family where each patient is special and important. We treat them the way we would want to be treated and always go the extra mile to make sure that not only do they have great oral health, but that they have a great experience while they’re here with us. I stay active when I’m not in the office. Some of my favorite times are those spent hiking, fishing, and camping. Curling-up with a book is always enjoyed. I’m active in our community, too. I prepare meals for the homeless and volunteer with the school fluoride program.
I am so lucky to work for Redmond Dental Group, I love the fun and positive environment. There is no better feeling than seeing a patient leave happy and with a smile on their face. I attended dental hygiene school at Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls. When I’m not working I like to hunt, fish, spend time with friends and family, eating pizza and playing with my saint Bernard Sarge. I grew up in Central Oregon and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.
I became a dental hygienist in California where I went to school at San Joaquin Valley College. I am from Prineville where I live with my husband who is currently attending medical school. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and riding horses. I love working with patients and providing the quality care they deserve.

Redmond Dental Group provides a professional, fun, and comfortable environment that I look forward to coming to each and every day. Our team is made up of so many personalities with different backgrounds and beliefs, but somehow we all come together to make our patients’ experience outstanding! I enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing the beautiful smiles on their faces. Originally from central Oregon, I now reside in the Redmond area with my son who loves archery and baseball, and my daughter who loves animals and gymnastics. I love watching my kids play sports, especially Bend North Little League games!
