I joined the Pinecreek Dental team in 2017 and work in the front reception area. Our family moved to Salmon to raise our daughter in a rural atmosphere, and we enjoy giving back to our community in many ways. My husband Jim, our daughter Sarah, and myself have come to know "Pinecreek Dental as one of Idaho's premier Dental healthcare providers!" I consider this my "Salmon dream job" and it is my distinct pleasure to be part of this winning team. I cannot wait to meet you at your next appointment!
I had the privilege to become a Pinecreek team member in 2017. I was born and raised in Salmon, and after going to school returned back to Salmon where I married my husband, Kyler. We enjoy everything living in Salmon has to offer, while spending time with our two little boys! You can find me greeting and scheduling patients or handling your insurance at the front desk, or on occasion in the back assisting with Dr. Joe! I look forward to seeing you!
I have been a member of the Pinecreek Dental team since 2012. I graduated Cum Laude from OIT with a bachelor's degree in Dental Hygiene. Born and raised in Salmon, I am happy to be living in my home town. I was a member of the 2005 state winning hockey team and continue to play. Whether floating, paddle boarding, rock hounding or fishing; I love to spend time on the river. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family, friends and fur babies, as well as working on my yard and garden.
Also known as “Katy O,” I was born and raised in beautiful Salmon. I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor Degree in Dental Hygiene. I then decided the city was not for me and came running home. I was very active and involved in high school not only in my academics and sports career, but also throughout the community volunteering and participating in local events. Outside of hygiene, I absolutely adore my family. I am the oldest of two children, and have been told I "motherhen" my little brother. I am excited to be able to give back to the Salmon community and share my passion towards oral hygiene with my patients.
"Giving someone a new smile, which can change their lives, is my passion. Doing it with sedation is truly great care. Giving help to those that are scared or have had a bad experience in the past is a great experience." - Dr. Joe Rodriguez.

I joined the Pinecreek team in 2019, as a certified dental assistant.

When not at work, you can find me chasing my three kids and all of their activities.
