Ericka Office Manager
After working in dentistry for the past 17 years, I am thrilled to be a part of the amazing Lewis River Dental team. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to work within the Woodland and La Center communities and look forward to getting to know the amazing patients that we have. I am a lover of all things bread, cheese, cookies, and traveling to foreign places. When I'm not traveling, I enjoy spending time with my amazing family, judging high school dance competitions, or teaching my Zumba classes. I'm a die hard Portland Trailblazers and Seattle Seahawks fan! Go Blazers and Hawks!

Kristen Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for 6 years. I graduated from the Clark College Dental Hygiene program in 2009 and then got my bachelors in Dental Hygiene through Eastern Washington University in 2010. I love getting to help patients have healthy teeth and educating them on the ways to do that. I love working for Lewis River Dental because everyone works so well as a team. We are all there for each other and that makes a great work environment. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest all my life. I am originally from Longview and now live in Vancouver. I love how beautiful this area of the world is (even with the rain) and I especially love being near rivers and the ocean. I love living in Vancouver with all the variety of places to shop and eat and being so close to Portland also. I love to travel and try to see new places and try new things often.

Megan is originally from the Seattle area, but has made her home in Longview with her husband, Tyler, her step-son, Carson and their daughter, Tori. The Pacific Northwest is the perfect place for Megan and her family because they enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities like boating, hiking and
