Meet Our Team


Tanya, Registered Dental Hygienist Tanya Kornuta, Registered Dental Hygienist

Tanya is very passionate about dental hygiene! Her hygiene philosophy is to provide the highest quality of care, while helping her patients maintain a healthy smile. Her goal is to create a welcoming experience by presenting patients options for their dental hygiene, so THEY can choose what is right for them!

Her favorite thing about being your dental hygienist is hearing the patient stories. She loves learning new things from the patients that sit in her chair. So please don’t come shy to your dental cleanings J

In her free time, she enjoys tropical vacations and camping (two extremes).  She loves photography, decorating and setting up for small events and parties! She also stays busy by being a mom to three young boys!

Tanya is an amazing cook! Her specialty is sweet treats, which is dangerous for her fellow team members.  It’s a good thing we can sit in her chair to avoid cavities!

She is also engaged to an Argentinian chef- so she has been experimenting with sauces and what that does to food. Although she is not a picky eater, she is allergic to shrimp, but she sometimes takes will take the risk.

Jackie is learning a lot when it comes to dentistry, she is newer to the field, and has spent 2 years working in general dentistry and endodontics. She loves working with kids and has a lot of experience with patients who do not love coming to the dentist!

She really values smiles that are transformed. She is currently in the process of transforming her smile, as she has invested in braces for herself! It makes her happy when people dedicate their time and energy to having a healthy smile, and she’ll be the first to notice when they do!

Miranda, Front Office Receptionist

Miranda, Front Office Receptionist

Miranda is new to the Portland area! She moved here from a small town in Florida. She was born and raised there, and as you can imagine, she loves the Florida beaches and the ocean. Although, she hasn’t been to the Oregon coast yet, she might be in for a real shock!

Miranda has been in dentistry for a couple years, but in her free time she enjoys cooking, and she is always looking for a new recipe to try. She also loves to spend time with her four year old son and fiancé. Now that they have arrived in Oregon, they will most likely spend their free time exploring all the things we have to offer!

Marissa is a hybrid of the perfect team member.  She has worked as a Patient Care Coordinator for 10 years, and was a Dental Assistant for 4 years. With her experience and dental background, she can be fluid throughout the entire office.

She grew up here in St. Johns North Portland, and now she resides in Scappoose, Oregon.  Her commute did not stop her from joining our team because she still has a ton of family close to the office!

On her off days, she enjoys spending time with her daughters, husband, and dog named “general lee”. They enjoy camping, riding ATV’s and going to the beach!

Please give her your best challenge and watch her overcome it as your patient care coordinator- Because she’s totally got this!
