Our providers have adjusted their schedules. Dr Kaur will see patients Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Dr Vivona will see patients Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Join us in recognizing two of our amazing team members. Miriam and Nic were voted as Co Employees of the Month for February.
Miriam is our Hygiene Coordinator and usually the first voice you hear on the phone. She was chosen by her peers because she always goes above and beyond to help our patients and team members. She is a perfectionist and always striving to make our office more efficient. She is also our resident horticulturist and takes care of our office’s many plants.
Nic is one our Dental Assistants and has a powerhouse personality that sets her apart. Our patients love her ability to strike up a fun conversation and help them feel at ease. Her bubbly, outgoing humor and her can do attitude are why her peers voted for her. She is always jumping in to help, often before anyone even asks.
Happy Spring! It looks like 2022 is really bringing a ray of sunshine to us - finally! We wanted to share some of our office news with all of you:
Our beloved hygienist Mandy is having her first baby girl, due in April. As many of you know, Mandy has been waiting for this sweet girl for many years so we couldn't be more excited for her.
While Mandy is on a well-deserved maternity leave, Laci will be caring for her patients on Mondays and Tuesdays. We know you'll find Laci to be an exceptional hygienist, who is gentle, knowledgeable and dedicated to her patients.
Cindi will be seeing Mandy's patients on Wednesdays! Yes, the very same Cindi who was with our practice since 2011, so many of you already know her and love her.
In other news, we're striving to cut back on energy use, plastics and waste. We see that the only way forward is to live more sustainably: We've stopped buying plastic toothbrushes and now have superior bamboo brushes with soft bristles. We now have Dr. Tung's floss refills to put into your existing plastic containers. We've switched from plastic pod laundry detergent to EarthBreeze detergent sheets. And we've recently stopped using paper towels in our staff lounge and bathroom and switched to washable cloth towels from Marly's Monsters. Dr. Vivona is currently sampling toothpaste tablets. We'll let you know as soon as we find the perfect one so we can all ditch the plastic toothpaste tubes!
And lastly, Otis, our emotional support dog, just turned 2 in January. He wants everyone to know that he promises not to go through the “terrible twos” and really just wants to sit by your side and get his neck scratched.
We wish you and yours a healthful spring! We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.

Happy Spring to all of you!
We have found an incredible dentist to announce: Harmeet Kaur, DDS.
Dr. Kaur is very excited to be a part of our amazing team. She originally graduated from dental school in 2008 in India, where she practiced for years. She then moved to the U.S. and graduated from the University of Michigan International Dentist Program in 2018 and has called Eugene her home since then.
She says, "of all the things I love, dentistry comes first". She finds that dentistry is never monotonous and she enjoys meeting new people, getting to know them and helping them achieve optimal oral health care.
We are so excited about Dr. Kaur because she holds the same preventative values that Dr. Vivona share. Furthermore, she is incredibly gentle and carefully explains procedures and advice to patients.
Dr. Kaur and her husband are also enjoying being parents for the first time. They welcomed a precious baby girl in 2020.
We know you'll love Dr. Kaur as much as we do - please help us welcome her for the next few months.
We hope this newsletter finds you healthy and happy after this incredibly difficult year.

Many of you are aware that one of our hygienists Emily is expecting her first baby, a little girl, in April. Both mom and baby are doing amazing. Emily has started her maternity leave a bit earlier than expected and will be out until mid July. Although we will miss her terribly, we are blessed to have Genna cover for her during her maternity leave. You will find Genna shares the same great philosophies and approach to your dental care as Emily, and the rest of our exceptional hygiene team. She is gentle, caring, and very sweet natured. She is very detail oriented and we are confident you will love her. Please join us in congratulating Emily on her soon to be baby and welcoming Genna in her absence.

"Without a doubt the best dental office I've ever been a patient of. The dentists and their hygienists are all very friendly and knowledgable, and they do their best to make you as comfortable as possible. I haven't tried other dentists in Eugene, but I know I'm not alone in my opinion here… definitely recommend!" ~ Timothy
"Dr. Vivona was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier with my experience. While I wish I didn't need dental work, my experience with her has been great. She takes her time to make sure she's properly diagnosing. While doing the work, she was gentle, thorough and explained everything along the way, making sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend her" ~ Audrey
"I was greeted as I was walking in the door by two wonderful assistants. The hygienist was wonderful and encouraging through the whole exam. Over all the staff is the best I’ve encountered through dental and would recommend Dr. Vivona to anyone looking for quality and gentle care." ~Kimmi
