Patient Care Advocate
One of my favorite things is seeing people who are happy, smiling, and confident, which is why I work for Dr. Mingus. Every day we see patients from all walks of life get the treatment they want, some who did not think it was possible. My role as patient care advocate is to make sure I take the time to understand what you want and make a plan designed just for you.
The very best way to spend my time outside of work is with my little girl and my husband, experiencing the richness of life in Bend. We love to introduce our daughter to the mountains through hiking and exploring. When I was small, my family took me to Disneyland, which made me want to be a Disney Princess. We can't wait to take our daughter when she is a bit older.
Smile Enhancement Coordinator
A smile is the first thing I notice on someone. A bright smile can light up a room and change someone's day. As a little girl, I was encouraged to dream and make a change in someone's life. Working for Dr. Mingus allows me to give this gift to our patients by designing their best possible smile.
Loving Bend is easy. Who doesn't love amazing restaurants and brew pubs? The sun shines every day and the adventures in Bend are food for our souls. My most memorable childhood memories are fresh seafood, ocean air, and family in the San Juan Islands.
Smile Enhancement Coordinator
Bend is home. I was born here and treasure Bend's many assets. Mostly, I value the relationships I have cultivated with the people of Bend, and our family of patients. Every day, I put our patients at ease during their process of obtaining beautiful, healthy smiles.
As a small child, I dreamed of being a movie star. While I devoted my time to dentistry instead of the silver screen, my sparkle comes out in my work. One of my favorite places to unwind is the warm sun and sand of Maui, where I relax and revive my spirit.
How could anyone not appreciate the sun that shines in Bend every single day? This allows my family to enjoy the outdoors all year long, but especially the summer months. We love boating in the hundreds of mountain lakes in Central Oregon. Although I've been to many beautiful places, my favorite vacation is Lake Shasta with the bright sun and warmth it is famous for.
For as long as I can remember, I was in awe of people's smiles and wanted to be an orthodontist. Now, I get to enjoy helping people achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
Calling Bend home is easy. The scenery is breathtaking, the people treat me like family and the breweries are like nowhere else. When I was small, my love for animals drew me toward being a veterinarian. Working for Dr. Mingus allows me to deeply care for our patients by connecting with you and helping you live your healthiest life through beautiful smiles.
My greatest adventure was backpacking through Europe with my husband on our honeymoon. We explored hundreds of miles, ate great food, and connected with people from all parts of the world along the way.
Director of Operations
With over three decades in aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Mingus' goals for relationship-building while providing excellent care is a perfect match for me. While the 'math' part of my job is not very glamorous, the funnest part of my job is serving wine to our guests and arranging travel for our out-of town guests who come to see us for a level of care they cannot get at home. Who wouldn't want to visit Bend for exceptional dental care?
I am in love with the culture in Bend. I grew up not far from here on a cattle ranch, chasing cows on the desert, and wanted to be a Rodeo Trick Rider when I was six. That didn't pan out as a viable career, but I'm still living the dream! I love the desert so much that I drug my husband on a road trip through Eastern Oregon for our honeymoon a few years ago. There is just no place like Oregon.
