Jennifer Scheel | Dental Assistant

Jennifer plays a key role in making our patients’ visits smooth and relaxing. She talks with patients while preparing them for treatment, answering any questions they may have. She pays special attention to the details when getting our treatment room ready, taking x-rays and logging information into patient charts. She assists Dr. Arima during dental procedures and patients can feel confident they are in good hands.

Jennifer graduated from Bryman College in 2001 on the Directors’ honor roll. She had three years experience at Sea Mar Community Health before joining our office.

Her interests include horseback riding, riding motorcycles, hiking and gardening.

She takes and develops x-rays, applies cavity preventive agents, administers anesthetic and places restoration. She also works with Dr. Arima to develop long term treatment plans for patients.

Megan earned her A.S. degree from Gray Harbor Community College, and her A.A.S. in Dental Hygiene from Yakima Valley Community College. She has taken several hours of continuing dental education, including three Dental Boot Kamps.
