Chelsea – RDH, Lead Hygienist
Chelsea graduated as Class Secretary from the Lane Community College Dental Hygiene program in 2016 with an Associate of Applied Science Degree.

Noelle – RDH
Noelle earned her Bachelor of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Yakima Valley College, graduating in 2016 while serving as Class President. Her favorite part of dentistry is working together with patients that are anxious or afraid of dental work and helping them have a comfortable, positive experience in the dental chair. She moved here from Washington in 2017 after marrying Jordan, a Grants Pass native. Noelle began at Johnston Dental Care as a fill in and loved it so much she never left! She is thrilled to now be working with our great patients on a full-time basis. You will probably see a photo of her dog, Winston, before leaving the appointment!
“I am so glad to be a part of such a kind, positive team of professionals serving wonderful patients.”
