When not working, I enjoy quilting, hanging out with my husband, gardening, reading the Bible, and enjoying life.

“Hello, I am the wife of Dr. Brandon White and together we have two children. We have lived in the Rogue Valley since 2007 and love living here because we cherish the outdoors! I love to hike, kayak, bike and ski. I am also a foodie and am love collecting and perfecting recipes and visiting local wineries.
I graduated from the University of Missouri – Kansas City with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and an emphasis in Media Production. I’ve enjoyed being able to apply my skills to managing White Dental Studio’s brand, marketing, advertising, website, and social media. Thanks for visiting our website!”

“My first job as a teenager was in commission sales. I found out very quickly that while I didn’t like pushing products onto people they didn’t want or need, I did love providing good customer service. Making people happy by helping them find what worked best for them made me feel good, as well. So, when I was offered my first dental receptionist position in 2001, it seemed a natural fit that would allow me use my skills with the public. Since then, my focus has always been on providing excellent patient care and helping people meet their needs in any way that I can.
At my first dental practice, I quickly worked my way up from a receptionist, to a financial and insurance coordinator, and office assistant to the doctor. Because of the 16 years I spent working in a large specialty practice, I have had the pleasure of assisting many thousands of patients with their financial and insurance needs and have always enjoyed when I could bring a smile to a patient that arrived for his/her appointment worried or nervous.
When I was offered the opportunity to come on board with Dr. White and his team as Office Manager at White Dental Studio – again, it seemed a natural fit. I am enjoying immensely the ability to spend more time getting to know my patients, and working with such a fantastic doctor and staff.
Outside of work, I have an amazing husband with whom I have been for over 20 years, and we have three young daughters. The girls keep us very busy with dance, gymnastics, acting and modeling, but we also love to do outdoor activities as a family such as fishing or camping on our Applegate river property whenever possible.”

“As far as I know, I am the world’s only whitewater rafting, tuba-playing dental “guy-gienist.” Not at the same time, of course!
I started in dental hygiene in 2012, graduating from San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico. My first job was in a private practice in Durango, Colorado, where I was the only hygienist. After two years of great experience, I decided to return to the area where I grew up: Southern Oregon! Since then, I have worked for small offices, large-volume group practices, and periodontal specialists, gaining broad experience to apply in every interaction I share with patients. I am wholly committed to gaining the trust of each individual in my chair in order to build a strong partnership in oral and holistic health.
When I’m not helping patients with smiles, I can be found with my wife Kristin, floating whitewater rivers, playing with my two dogs and cat, exploring wild and beautiful places, and maybe even sharing a frosty beverage with friends.
I look forward to helping you along in your oral health journey!”
Lead Dental Assistant
I married my husband Noah in 2021 in a true covid-fashion wedding. We have 2 dogs that are the center of our world. Remy is a dachshund mix and Goomba is a chaweenie. I adopted Remy in 2020 from a rescue in Chico, California. She was the perfect addition to my husband and I, but I thought my heart could hold enough love for one more dog, so we adopted Goomba as a puppy in January of 2022. They absolutely complete our little family!”
In my spare time, I enjoy teaching group fitness classes at a local gym where I’ve been employed for six years. Recently, I have fallen in love with running and have completed three marathons and numerous half-marathons. I also have an amazing husband of nearly eight years with whom I enjoy fishing, hiking, and camping. He recently taught me to fish for salmon and I caught one that weighed-in at 35 pounds!”
Business Office Assistant
I have a long history in finance and customer service. I entered the work force as a teen in 2006 as a teller at a local credit union. I worked my way up the ladder from entry level teller to loan officer and branch team lead over the next seven years, weathering the storm of the 2008 recession. I was then offered a job at a local pawn shop and saw the opportunity to expand my horizons. I stayed for seven years where I gained a little knowledge in a lot of subjects. Though the pawn shop was very fun and sometimes exciting, there wasn’t room for advancement and so I decided it was time to shuffle along. Next, I briefly worked as a surgery assistant for an oral surgeon and gained my dental radiology certification. I also briefly worked as a bakery assistant and relief baker, which was far outside my wheelhouse but so much fun. In the end though, I found my way back to customer service and finance by the opportunity here with Dr. White at White Dental Studio. I had already been a patient for years and knew the high quality of his work and his care for his patients and staff. I am thoroughly enjoying being part of welcoming new patients to the office and getting to know our long-time patients!
In my spare time I love to spend time with my daughter (when she lets me because I am no longer cool), hike, read (mostly science fiction), and visit my boyfriend in Reno, NV where we usually find some event or new hike to take on. I am a big animal lover and have two cats: Coffee and DD. Spare time in my life is short, so that’s pretty much the list!
