My name is
Julie. I was born in Riverside ,California .
We moved to Oregon when I was 8 years old. I have the most wonderful memories of berry
picking, swimming in the river and playing football with the neighbor kids, in the mud, while I was in grade
school living out in the country. Of course it took bicycles to get from one home to the
I have 2 children. My son has a
mobile auto detailing company that he founded while in high school.
My daughter Dana is a hygienist working 2 days per week for Dr.
I have 3 adorable grandbabies. They spend a lot of time at my
house because that is where their Shetland pony lives! I live on 3 ½ acres
in S. Salem.
I came to Dr. Dilger’s practice in
1985. I was his assistant for the first 3 years then moved to office manager. I have seen many changes with
dentistry through the years. Dr. Dilger has always been on the leading edge of dentistry so our
patients receive the best care possible with our “State of the Art” facility. I'm looking forward to
Clinical – Hygiene
My name is Angie. I am
a gentle dental hygienist. It is important to me to be able to put my
patients at ease and ensure a pleasant experience when they come to see me. While performing meticulous cleanings
or periodontal therapy, I strive to be as gentle as possible, keeping my patients comfortable and gaining their
trust. It is my goal to help my patients achieve optimal periodontal health.
I grew up in south Tillamook County, graduated from Nestucca High School, and moved to
Salem in 2002. I completed my pre-requisites for dental hygiene at Chemeketa, and then commuted to Lane
Community College, where I earned my degree in dental hygiene. I am a member of the American Dental Hygiene
Association, and presently serve as the secretary on the board of our local component.
When you come to see me, you will likely hear stories about my two amazing and
vivacious daughters. We have fun baking, playing board games and reading stories together. Weather
permitting, we love going to the beach to surf and build sand castles. When I’m not working, or spending time
with my daughters, I like to run. I have completed many races, including: Hood to Coast, Three Capes Marathon
Relay, Girlfriends Run for a Cure half marathon, and Cascade Half Marathon.
As your hygienist, I will always remind you, "You
only need to floss the teeth you want to keep."
My name is Dana
and I have been a dental hygienist for 9 years now! I went through the dental assisting program at Chemeketa Community College in 2001 before deciding to
continue my education. I received my dental hygiene degree from a private school in California before
moving back to Oregon (where I was born and raised.) I have known Dr. Dilger since I was 3 years old!
He is always up to date on the latest technology and reads current literature to stay on top of the
ever changing world of dentistry. Therefore, I learn something new everyday!
I have 3 young
children who are very active and keep me busy! I enjoy spending my time with them and "going on

I enjoy gardening, camping and all the many wonderful adventures
Oregon has to offer. Most of all, I love spending time with my children and grandchildren.

my name is Carolyn.
I am the hygiene and
sterilization assistant. I enjoy working in an office that is fast paced, fun and technologically advanced. It
seems everyday I learn something new about the dental field and I appreciate the opportunity!
I was born and raised in Mt. Angel so I am a true "valley girl". I have four brothers and three
sisters with whom I’m very close to. We love camping together every year in the summer. My sisters and I get
together every chance we get!
I have been married to my
husband, Joe, for 25 years. He was born and raised east of Couer D’Lene, Idaho so we visit up there often. We have
lived in Keizer for over 16 years. We have had our own masonry business for over 22 years. We enjoy camping,
fishing and gardening together with our cocker spaniels, Tessa and Saydee.
I am excited about meeting you and helping you with
your dental care.
