Meet The Team


I am Barbara and am the Practice Manager for Paul Botsford, DMD.     I love the people I work with, patients, Doctor  and staff.  I am blessed to be doing the work I love with amazing people surrounding me.   What is better than a chance to provide beautiful bright smile to patients in a caring, happy and smiling atmosphere?  Dr. Botsford does that with skill, professionalism and a great sense of humor.   I am here to help you in any way I can.  We continue to provide the best in dental care and esthetics. 

I grew up traveling around the world.  Our family of 8 lived in 7 different states and 4 countries (Japan, England, France and Germany) while I was growing up. I received my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Florida. Go GATORS!! I have continued taking classes at SOU and love it.

I moved here to the Rogue Valley in 1976 where I raised a beautiful family on our 16 acre ranch off Wagner Creek. My girls, their families and my 6 grandchildren (how did that happen??) live here in the Rogue Valley. In 2002 my husband and I moved into Medford. Now when I am not at work, I have time with the grandchildren, snow skiing, sailing, traveling or riding my Paint horse.


My name is Julie and I have been with Dr. Meyerding since November of 2010.  I have worked in the dental field for over 19 years.  I am very fortunate to work in a high quality, compassionate and fun practice.  I will have the pleasure of greeting you when you walk in the door and hope to help you feel welcome.  I will be happy to help you with insurance, scheduling or billing questions.  I love getting to know our patients, they are very special to me and I always look forward to hearing about their lives. 

In my spare time, I love to work with my husband on our property that we just purchased from my family. He has just retired after 30 years of service with the Oregon State Police and this has allowed him to become a full time farmer .   We have 3 amazing kids that are all married to wonderful spouses and have blessed us with 3 beautiful grand babies.  Life is good!  I enjoy tennis, playing piano, long walks with my Boxer (Dexter), camping, cooking, entertaining, traveling and anything that includes our family. 


My name is Ashley, I joined Dr. Meyerding’s staff in April 2014 as a dental assistant.  I graduated from Southern Oregon Dental Assistant Education, taught by Deb Silva, in the spring of 2014.  My love and passion for my new profession has only continued to grow as I work with patients on a daily basis.  It is my goal to help make every patient feel as comfortable as possible, and make each experience here a positive and enjoyable one.  I love helping to educate and motivate patients about their oral health.

I grew up outside of the City of Rogue River, and have lived in the valley most of my life.  I spent a few years in Corvallis after high school studying Interior Design.  I decided to change career directions when I discovered I had a baby on the way.  I moved back to Rogue River in 2011, and still reside there with my boyfriend of eight years and our beautiful three year old son.

In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, singing, golfing and biking.  But most of all I enjoy spending quality time with my family.
