Meet our Team
Melinda – Front Office
I had the opportunity to attend Western College of Allied Health Careers out of high school training for Front Office Management and Chair side Assisting. After taking time off to be a stay at home mom, I have worked as an assistant and in the front office since 1989. I have had the opportunity to live and work in California, Virginia, Georgia, and Utah. I have loved this place.
My husband and I have been married for 35 years and have 4 children. Since 2 of them live out of state (California and Texas) we enjoy traveling to visit them as often as possible. We are expecting our 9th grandchild soon, and love spending time with them. In my spare time I enjoy reading, camping, and jigsaw puzzles. I have also taken a few classed in crocheting and quilting.
Although I grew up in Northern California and have lived in many places, I consider Utah home and love working in this wonderful office!
Tammy R. – Dental Assistant
My career in the dental field first began in 2002 as a patient coordinator and have loved it ever since. I graduated as a Registered Dental Assistant through Vista College in 2009 and began working as a chair side assistant with Dr. Johnston in June 2011. I look forward to making this my full-time career and getting to know all of our great patients. I have been married for 5 years and have two handsome sons and one beautiful daughter who keep me busy all the time. I enjoy being outdoors and going for hikes and spending time with family and friends.
Morgan – Dental Assistant
I started working as a Dental Assistant for Doctor Johnston in 2012. I was a dream come true! I graduated from Bonneville High School in 2013 and also attended the Ogden Weber Applied Technology College (OWATC) for Dental Assisting. I am now a full time student at Weber State University and hope to one day be accepted to their Dental Hygiene program.
Outside of school and work, I love to run! I also enjoy scrapbooking and smashbooking my personal photos. I love boating and skiing with my family and friends.
Amy – Dental Hygienist
I have been working in the Dental field for almost 20 years, the past 12 have been in Dr. Johnston’s office. I really love the atmosphere we have in our office and enjoy working with Dr. Johnston and our entire staff. I love our patients! Many have been coming to Dr. Johnston for over 25 years and we consider many of them to be our dear friends.
I have lived in the South Ogden area my entire life, and graduated from Weber State University in 1999. My husband and I have two boys, and we love to travel together. We spend a lot of time outdoors, camping, hiking, and going on many adventures!
My experience with Johnston Dental began in early 2004 as a chairside dental assistant. I soon fell in love with dentistry and wanted to make it my full time career. In April 2010, I graduated from Weber State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene and received my state licenses for dental hygiene and local anesthesia. I currently work two days a week for Dr. Johnston and thoroughly enjoy the one-on-one time with our great patients. Coming to work is always so fun for me and I enjoy each member of our awesome team.
Outside of the office, my husband and I stay busy with our very loveable and active two year old son, Clark and baby girl, Shelby. Traveling and spending lots of time with our families is very fun for me. In my spare time, I enjoy running, being outdoors, cooking, and scrapbooking.
