Melia

Office Manager
I have grown up in the world of dentistry, as my father was a dentist. Our dental office feels like home to me. At my “other” home, with my wrestling coach husband, we have raised six kids and are adding to that number with son and daughter-in-laws and even grandchildren© I love to read, garden, go to the movies, and eat out! Occasionally, I’ve been known to rock climb, scuba dive & drive anything fast.

I have been in the dental field since 2003. My passion and love for people is what makes me enjoy every day at work. On my off time, I enjoy traveling anywhere with sunshine and spending as much time as I can with my kids.

Dental Assistant
I've enjoyed my career as a certified dental assistant ever since I earned my license back in 2005, at CCI. I joined Dr. Heppler and his team in 2014, and can truly say that his office is my home away from home. I find dentistry fascinating - there is always some new technology coming out, and dentistry overall is such a sophisticated science. I also enjoy working and helping people. My personal time is spent mostly at home, with my husband and two sons, Noah and Theo. I am so lucky to have my little family - they are everything to me.

Bethany

Dental Hygienist
Hi, I'm Bethany! In 2014, I graduated from Clark College as a dental hygienist. At Dental Designs, I get to enjoy my passion for promoting the oral and overall health of the community. The standards of care and team philosophy here allow us to provide the absolute best treatment. It has been such a joy to get to know patients and to have a good laugh with everyone. I've lived in Vancouver coming on 7 years now. Some of my favorite parts are exploring the Columbia Gorge, Portland restaurants, and the Oregon coastline. I love to hear about your favorite local and foreign adventures!

I have been a hygienist since 2013. I enjoy getting to know each patient on a personal level and create an environment that is truly a memorable and relaxing dental experience. I specialize in helping patients with dental anxiety. I look forward to meeting you! I cherish my time away from work with my four kids and husband of 20 years. I’m an avid jogger and love reading, gardening, cooking and spending time with my girlfriends

Janna

Scheduling Coordinator
I’ve been involved in dental for many years! I specialize in office duties, working with insurance and customer relations. I love being able to help people in any way I possibly can! When I'm not working, I am spending time with my son, Ehylan. He is a very busy, typical boy, who definitely keeps me on my toes! We love to be outdoors (weather permitting) going for walks, trips to the beach, camping, you name it!
