Joel (Office Manager)
I have been a part of the team at Mountain View Oral Surgery for 5 years. I love getting to work with our team and our referring offices to take great care of our patients. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Kara, for 16 years. Together we have two energetic boys, Jett and Jax. When I’m not at the office, I’m either hanging out with my family and playing games or out camping in our ’77 VW bus.
Haley (Front Office)
Emily (Implant Coordinator)
Hi! I’m Emily, and I have worked at Mountain View Oral Surgery for the past 13 years. I enjoy my position in the office as Implant Coordinator, Dr. Johnson’s Treatment Coordinator, and a Surgical Assistant. I am blessed to work for a family-oriented office and team who share a lot of the same values within the office as well as outside of the office. I enjoy the constant challenges of increased learning and education that is provided by our doctors. I continue to be pushed and truly learn something new every day. Outside of work I stay busy being a wife and mother to my three beautiful children. We enjoy spending time outdoors which may include camping, beach trips, bike rides, and enjoy hosting BBQ’s with family and friends.
Makenna (Treatment Coordinator)
Hi! I’m Makenna, and was born and raised in the Yamhill-Carlton area. I completed my externship for dental assisting with Mountain View Oral Surgery and have been working here full time since January 2015 as a Surgical Assistant. I recently became Dr. Kolodge’s Treatment Coordinator. I love what I do, because I get to meet great people, and hear their stories. I love helping our patients get the quality care that they need and giving them a great experience while doing so! On my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, nephews, photography, working at a local coffee shop, and am currently learning how to play the guitar.
I have had the pleasure of working as a Surgical Assistant for Mountain View Oral Surgery for 8 1/2 years. I couldn’t ask for a better team/family to work side by side with that share the same daily life core values. I enjoy nurturing and comforting my patients to give them the best possible experience. Outside of work I am busy being a wife to a wonderful husband and a momma to three beautiful teenagers. We enjoy spending time with friends and family, and anything outdoors including gardening, camping, hiking, fishing, floating, or just firing up the grill.
Hi, I’m Mandalin! I have worked as a Surgical Assistant for 2 and a half years and feel so fortunate to work with an awesome team that treats one another like family. I am happily married and a mother of two sweet sons, ages 12 and 18. In our spare time, we enjoy fishing, hunting, camping, boarding, and all of those other fun “boy activities”!
Hi! I’m Lindsay, and I have been working as a Surgical Assistant for 20 years, and have spent most of my career here at Mountain View Oral Surgery. I love helping our patients have a wonderful experience. Coming into an oral surgeon’s office can be intimidating and stressful for some, but the power of conversation is amazing and comforting. I love getting to know who you are, and the ways that I can help you during your time with us!

Hi, I’m Kirsten! I have been working for the office since May of 2012 as the Referral Marketing Coordinator. I also serve as the CE Coordinator for the Alpha Omega Study Club, which provides close to 40 dentists and specialists with the highest level of knowledge in the field of dentistry. I find so much joy in building relationships with the dental professionals and staff that we have the privilege of working alongside every day, and also couldn’t ask for a better work family! I have been married for almost 8 years to the best man I have ever met, and together we enjoy working on our new home and taking care of our property in Amity, along with the happy company of our two dogs, Kylo and Nala.
