Melia – Office Manager

Melia at your Vancouver dentist I have grown up in the world of dentistry, as my father was a dentist. Our dental office feels like home to me. When at my “other” home, life is crazy with my wrestling coach husband and six kids! My first child will be graduating in 2010, but we stay very busy with soccer, volleyball, football, track and wrestling, wrestling, wrestling : ) In my spare time (ha ha) I love to read, go to the movies, and eat out! Occasionally, I’ve been known to rock climb, ski & drive anything fast.

Kelli – Financial Coordinator

KelliMove over Martha Stewart, I’m the domestic queen in a business suit! My dental experience spans over 11 years, which includes consulting in other dental practices, and the management of all office duties. When not in the office, I am either scrap booking, gardening, or being a soccer mom to our 9-year-old daughter, Madison. I enjoy volunteering at her school and going on school field trips too. Our family spends its summers camping, boating and riding quads.

Margo – Dental Hygienist

MargoI am a lifelong Vancouverite and am just as passionate about my dental hygiene career today, as I was when I started 34 years ago! My two daughters have given me a grandson each. What a joy they are! I love the outdoors and spend my summers camping and golfing. My time is filled with family and friends.


Angelica – Dental Assistant


I have been a dental assistant for six years, having worked with multiple doctors and specialties over that time. I just recently joined the family here at Dental Designs. What I love most is to make sure our patients feel just as at home as we do. When not working, I spend my time with family. I have two amazing children! My 15-year-old son is active in sports and youth church. I too am active in church and am part of the worship team. My daughter, age 9, is … well, a total princess. I enjoy singing and have had many opportunities such as auditioning for American Idol and singing at a Trail Blazers game. Go Blazers!

Jasmine – Dental Hygienist

097I earned my degree in dental hygiene in 2009 from Clark College in Vancouver, WA. I completed my Bachelor’s of Science degree at Eastern Washington University. I am thrilled to have found a team who shares my desire to provide patients with the highest quality of care. I continue with my desire for lifelong learning by taking extensive continuing education classes as well as participating in a dental hygiene study club.

I enjoy running, hiking, and spending time with my family as well as volunteering at my daughter’s school every Friday. I have a wonderful husband and two children, Keelee & Kellan.
