I am Barbara and I was Dr. Meyerding's Office Manager since 2002. In August, 2018 I transitioned with our entire team to Botsford Dental. Change can be difficult, but Dr. Meyerding passed the baton to Dr. Paul Botsford in a way that patients and staff were cared for seamlessly. I continue to love the people I work with, Doctor, patients and staff. 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. My father graduated from West Point in 1943. 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, Paige! My husband and I share our home with our 2 Jack Russells, Bailey and Rita.
My name is Denise and I have joined Dr. Meyerding’s staff as his dental hygienist in 2013. I moved to the Medford area from Waco, Texas in June 2013. I have 17 years of experience in the dental field with the last decade being devoted to the dental hygiene profession. I started my dental career as a dental assistant in 1996, graduating from Texas State Technical College. A few years later I enrolled in dental hygiene school at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas where I received my degree in Dental Hygiene.
I have loved my job and profession more than I ever imagined I would. I have a passion to motivate every patient I meet to have a happy, healthy smile. My desire is for all of our patients to feel fully educated and assured they will be treated in a comfortable and trusting atmosphere.
My husband and I are enjoying getting to know southern Oregon and its friendly people and have felt very welcomed. We have two beautiful, very energetic little children, two dogs and two cats. I personally enjoy jogging, crafts, jewelry making, all kinds of music and reading medical/health journals. However, most all of my time is devoted to my children. I stay busy keeping them happy and involved in as many activities as possible. We are all adjusting to calling Oregon our new home and I am excited to meet “y’all” at your next hygiene visit!
My name is Tiffany. I am a Dental Assistant at the office. I have been employed by Dr. Meyerding since January 2009. I received my dental assisting education at SODAE, a local dental assisting school which is taught by Deb Silva. I received my EFDA certification in December 2009.
Prior to working in the dental field, I worked as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in various health care settings for 6 1/2 years. I feel a great deal of satisfaction working with the public in the health care field as I feel it gives my life meaning and a purpose.
When I am not working, I am usually engaged in some sort of family activity with my husband and children. My interests include: shopping, road trips, comedy, music, shoes, movies, friends and 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.
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.
