Our Hygiene Department
Toni, Dental Hygienist
Toni is a skilled, caring, and knowledgeable dental hygienist who provides a range of personalized periodontal services to our patients. In addition to seeing people on a regular schedule for periodontal maintenance appointments, she screens patients with regular periodontal charting and X-rays. She provides each patient with home-care instruction, tailored to the individual’s periodontal concerns, and encourages the development of good oral hygiene practices. With her extensive knowledge of the procedures performed in the office, Toni is able to provide clarification and education to patients prior to surgical appointments, as well.
Toni enjoys time with her three (mostly) grown children and husband, especially on camping trips. She also loves searching sales for vintage items, visiting wineries, and any project involving her garden, knitting, or sewing. Her current project: restoring a vintage travel trailer.
Our Surgical Assistants
Hayley, Shelby, and Malinda
Our highly-trained and personable surgical assistants – Shelby, Malinda, and Hayley – are here to support, inform, and assist patients throughout their time with us. In addition to providing education about procedures, and answering all questions, they assist Dr. Mueller with procedures by working chairside.
Our surgical assistants also take diagnostic radiographs (X-rays), 3D scans, and impressions, and they sterilize instruments, perform lab work, and prepare the operatory for each procedure. Their collective goal is to ensure patient comfort before, during, and after their procedure.
Shelby and her amazing husband have been married for a short time and have a new baby that arrived in October 2022. The new family member was welcomed by two long-haired Doxies, Kona and Lokai.
Hayley and her husband Kyle are newlyweds who live in Corvallis with their pit bull, Leonard. Hayley loves to read, travel anywhere with copious amounts of sunshine, visit with family, and hike, run, and workout, among her many interests and passions.
Julie, Baily, and Michaela
Our friendly and professional front office staff is here to assist and support patients from the first phone call. They schedule appointments, handle financial and insurance matters, and coordinate with referring dental offices.
They are also happy to answer any and all questions, address concerns, and strive to set anxious patients at ease. Their collective knowledge, compassion, and excellent customer service, along with a genuine desire to please, ensure patients feel confident in selecting our office for implant and periodontal care.
Julie, Treatment Coordinator
Julie meets with our patients to review and discuss treatment recommendations, including insurance estimates and patient financial responsibility. Once the patient has decided to proceed, Julie creates the appointment sequencing, which makes the process efficient and worry free.
Julie loves to spend time with her family and new grandson. Her second most favorite thing is to travel. While she loves going anywhere and everywhere, Italy is her favorite destination. A Willamette Valley native, she feels fortunate to have diverse activities to enjoy close to home, too.
