The Team Mary Receptionist Mary started her career in dentistry long ago as a dental assistant. She spent years learning the intricacies of dentistry and can speak to pretty much anything that can be done in dentistry. She has even worked at a dental lab so there isn't much she doesn't know in the field. She keeps patients aware of their treatment needs and helps keep the team flowing like a championship swim team! Hiromi Dental Hygienist Born and raised in Japan, Hiromi graduated from university and earned her dental hygiene degree before coming to the United States in 1992. In Colorado, she earned another degree in dental hygiene and worked in a busy periodontal specialty practice. In 2003, Hiromi moved to Portland and has been with Tualatin Family & Cosmetic Dentistry since. "I enjoy the personal contact and getting to know my patients as well as caring for them. I love to hike in the Colombia Gorge during the summer and attend Portland Theater in the winter." Patty Front Office Manager Patty has spent years in dentistry and honed her skills in an oral surgery office and a couple of general dentistry offices. She has been with Dr. Rowley for over five years now and helps our patients with all of their insurance and billing needs, in English or Spanish!
