Donna H.

Lead Hygienist

I began my dental career in 1972 when I trained to be a dental assistant in the US Navy. After I was discharged, I went to dental hygiene school at Mt Hood Community College and graduated in1979. I then spent 2 years in Prince George, British Columbia which is 500 miles north of Vancouver, BC. It got too cold for me, so I came back to Oregon and stayed put. I have been with Healthy Smiles since it’s inception and worked for Dr. Ron Nakata for 13 years before Dr’s Saber and DeMasi bought the practice in 2005. I love all my “kids” here at Healthy Smiles and very proud of the work we do here. Everyone is kind, compassionate and committed to serving our patients with the best possible care.
