Meet Our Team


Scheduling Coordinator / Receptionist

I have been in the dental field since 1980, practicing as a certified dental assistant, and front office administrative assistant. I can truly say that I love the field of dentistry and it has been a great pleasure for me.

My goal as the Office Coordinator is to make sure that each person that calls or walks in the front door is made to feel welcome and cared for. Its easy to relax in our homey reception area, complete with a juice bar, consisting of fruit juices, hot coffee, tea, apple cider, hot cocoa, and more.

In my free time I enjoy camping, scrap booking and spending time with loved ones.


Office Manager / Financial Coordinator

I graduated  from Concorde Career Institute in Portland in January of 1996. Immediately after graduation I began my journey in the dental field holding positions in dental assisting from an entry level sterilization tech to an office manager. In addition to my clinical experience in the dental office I have had the opportunity to teach dentistry to dental assisting students and owned and operated a dental staffing and training business.

My duties here as the Office Manager are to ensure the smooth day to day flow of the office while ensuring your dental insurance benefits are maximized while assisting you with your payment and finance options.  I will try to keep your finances with us as painless as one of Dr. Carothers' injections.

When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with my family, that includes 6 kids and 2 grandchildren. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, bowling, Texas Holdem poker and playing video games.


Chair-side Assistant

I graduated from Concorde Career College and love being a dental assistant that thoroughly enjoys my career in the dental field.

My goal as the chair-side assistant is to ensure your dental appointment flows as smoothly as possible and you are comfortable while having treatment completed. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors with friends and my family.



Marla- HygienistI am very happy to have joined the team here at Dr. Carothers's office. 

The focus of my duties will be to inform and educated you about your dental health while cleaning your teeth twice a year.  I will also be working closely with Dr. Carothers to ensure your teeth, gums and mouth are as healthy as possible.

During my free time; I love spending time with my husband and daughter while being in the sunshine as much as possible.
