What I like most about Moreland Dental is the sense of pride that I feel about being part of such a talented and ethical group of care providers. I feel that we provide some of the best dental care available today. I also truly cherish the relationships that I have established with patients as well as the other staff members. It’s just a great place to be!

"I love the community of patients I have the privilege of meeting at Moreland. The Dr.s do exceptional work and have a preventative and trustworthy approach that I feel proud to stand behind. Every team member is supportive and non judgmental towards our patients allowing us to provide a fun and easy going environment to provide care. I hope to see you soon!”
Kim was raised in gold-rush country in The Sierra Nevada foothills. She grew up hiking, camping, riding horses and motorcycles, finding fun in the natural world around her. Currently her fur babies-3 cats and a dog are keeping her plenty busy along with all the traveling she and her significant other do. She has spent most of her life working in dentistry, 26 years to be exact. First as a dental assistant, then as an office manager, and finally as a dental hygienist. She feels called to connect with people and to educate and provide care, so dentistry was a natural fit. She has done a lot of volunteer work over the years, both abroad and at home. She has been at Moreland Dental since September 2016 and feels blessed to work with some of the best Doctors and staff she's ever worked with.
Moreland dental felt like home the moment I walked in and that translates to the way the patients are treated. You really learn to appreciate quality and honesty from providers that treat all their patients like family.
