Get to know our dental team!
Pam | Office Manager
Born and raised in Bend, OR, I have been involved in the dental field for over 20 years. I am very passionate about building long-term relationships with patients by educating them in regards to their dental health, treatment options, and dental insurance. I am a strong believer in continuing education and log many hours each year to help improve our office and enhance the services we provide to our patients. I’m currently working towards my Fellowship through the American Academy of Dental Office Managers (AADOM) and currently serving as a board member for the Central Oregon chapter of AADOM. Previously I have served as a board member for the Oregon Dental Executives Association (ODEA)
I love to work at Drew Family Dentistry because I get to come to work each day and it doesn’t feel like a job. It’s a pleasure to work with Dr. Drew knowing that the patients are truly getting a wonderful experience at their dental visit. It’s not often that you get a dentist who is not only kind, caring, and compassionate for his patients but is also very artistic with his dentistry.
When I’m not working, I spend my free time with my husband, Patrick, and our two dogs, Ricky and Sofie. Together, we have four kids and four grandchildren. My hobbies are bowling, cooking, kayaking, and when time allows, sailing.
Cortney | Scheduling Coordinator
I was born and raised in Central Oregon where I have been a patient of Dr. Drew’s for over a decade. Through my 10 years of orthodontia and countless visits to see Dr. Drew for routine check-ups, I fell in love with dentistry and how it can make a patient feel confident. When I got the chance to work for an incredible dentist, I jumped at the opportunity.
Prior to beginning my journey at Drew Family Dentistry, I worked for a third-party administrator handling insurance, which has given me a good background on how to accurately answer patients’ billing questions.
I love working at Drew Family Dentistry as I get the chance to help make other patients feel confident and comfortable in the care they are receiving. Not only does coming to work not feel like work but I get to spend it with an amazing group of people who have become my second family. Outside of work, I enjoy swimming, boating, camping, crafting, going to concerts, and spending time with my rescue dog, Stanley.
Jeannette | Dental Assistant
I began my career as a dental assistant over 26 years ago.
I enjoy going to classes, learning new things, and staying in tune with the times. I have always had an interest in health, working with people, and making them feel good about themselves. I like to educate patients about their oral health and make their visit as stress-free and comfortable as possible.
I enjoy working with Dr. Drew and the staff at Drew Family Dentistry because they all have the same goal: patient care! They really are concerned about the patient and each person is treated as an individual, like they are a friend or a part of the family. He spends time with the patient, talking about them and not just their dental issues.
I enjoy spending time at the lake in the summer with my husband and our dogs. I also enjoy kayaking, hiking, and being out in nature most of the year.
Britney | Dental Assistant
I have always had an interest in the dental field and making patients feel comfortable and at ease during their visit. After spending time working in the health insurance field, living abroad in South Korea, and completing my bachelor’s degree, I have been able to settle back into living in Central Oregon and join Dr. Drew’s team! I am proud to work in Dr. Drew’s office because everyone works so well together and we all genuinely want to ensure every patient receives the best possible care and experience.
As a native to Bend, Oregon I enjoy all the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer. My favorite hobbies include camping, hiking, scrapbooking, and spending time with my husband and dog.
Ashley | Registered Dental Hygienist
In 2005, I began my dental career as a filing clerk and quickly moved up as the scheduling and insurance coordinator. While spending three years serving the front oﬃce, I discovered I had a passion for the preventative side of dentistry, which led me to actively peruse my dream of becoming a dental hygienist.
Today, I am blessed to be a part of something very organic and uniquely special at Drew Family Dentistry! I call my co-workers my “work family” because that is just what we are. Dr. Drew has created an environment that allows enough time for each patient to receive top quality, comprehensive, and full mind-body care.
I have been told that I have the innate ability to make people feel at ease and I share that gift in the dental oﬃce. I enjoy getting to know my patients and making the family connections. My patients would say that I lead with compassion while providing consistent and comfortable care. Overall, oral health and wellbeing are evolving processes, and I take pride in tailoring each visit accordingly.
When I am not with my “work family,” you can find me: stand-up paddle boarding, swimming, hiking, camping, and practicing my own mind-body care. Above all, I am a wife and mother to three beautiful, happy, smart, and energetic children.
Kayla | Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Bend and left for a few years to obtain my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Institute of Technology where my calling in dental hygiene began.
I have always loved the clinical aspect of my career but what I love most is the relationships I build with patients and making the office feel like home where co-workers and patients are more like family. Because of that, education and prevention are a large focus of my appointments.
When I’m not working, I love being a mom and wife! I’m also very passionate about health and fitness and when I get free time love to do yoga, pilates, run, etc.
I look forward to MANY more years in dentistry taking care of my patients and growing my knowledge and skill set as our field evolves. Working at Drew Family Dentistry has been such a blessing, and I am so thankful to work with such amazing and patient-focused people!
Kindra | Registered Dental Hygienist
I love being a dental hygienist. It has been my passion for over 23 years! Helping patients achieve their goal for good oral health is something that I strive for each day. I am very proud to be part of Dr. Drew’s knowledgeable and compassionate team. I’m also the director of the High Desert Dental Hygienists’ Association.
On my days off, you’ll find me hiking local trails or enjoying the abundance of activities Bend has to offer. I also look forward to family time with my daughter and son when they are home from college.
