Dani Wilson

Registered Dental Hygienist

Born and raised in the Portland area, Dani graduated from West Linn High school in 1996.  She attended her first two years of college at Oregon State University before transferring to Oregon Health Sciences University where she received her Bachelors Degree in Science in Dental Hygiene in 2000.  Dani has experience working in General Dentistry, Pediatric Dentistry and in Periodontics.  She has been working at this office since 2010. 

Her passion is helping anxious patients overcome their fears in the Dental office, as she herself had suffered for years from a high level of dental anxiety.  Finding ways to relate to patients with compassion, humor and getting to know them on a personal level is what makes her love this profession. 

She is a mom to four children and a bonus mom to two step daughters. She enjoys playing board games with her children, traveling when possible, re-decorating, crafts, and DIY home projects.

Jacklyn Murphy-Snelling

Jackie Murphy-Snelling

Registered Dental Hygienist

Jackie was born and raised in Portland, OR where she graduated from Reynolds High School in 2008.  Her passion for dentistry started with a conversation with her childhood dentist during a routine cleaning appointment.  That led her to begin her career in dentistry as a dental assistant in 2011.  She has experience in both general dentistry and Periodontics. 

After working in that capacity for a few years, Jackie decided to pursue her ultimate goal of becoming a Dental Hygienist.  She graduated from Mt. Hood Community College in June of 2017. 

We were pleased to have her join our team in March of 2018 as a full-time Dental Hygienist.  Jackie has a passion for education, whether it’s her own or educating her patients.  She enjoys helping her patients understand their oral health so they can make informed and educated decisions about their care. 

When she’s not working, you can find Jackie enjoying the local food scene, hiking, playing sports or just spending time with her wife, Vanessa and their 6 year old “puppy”, Pablo.  She also enjoys time with her family who live in the area as well, going to concerts and on their annual family camping adventure at Trillium Lake.

Bonne Weitzel

Bonnie Weitzel

Registered Dental Hygienist

Bonnie was born and raised in Gladstone, OR. Her journey in dentistry began when a childhood friend, a dental assistant, offered her a job as a sterile tech at the dental office in which she worked. Little did she know, this would lead to a career in the dental field. In 2006, Bonnie moved to Reno, NV for 7 years. During that period, she completed the dental assisting program at Truckee Meadows Community College. Upon moving back to OR, Bonnie began working for Mark’s father (also a Dentist) in NE Portland as a dental assistant before deciding to go back to school to pursue a career as a dental hygienist. It was a slow start, working full time and taking pre-requisite night and weekend classes. She attended dental hygiene school at Mt Hood Community College. It’s funny how things work out, as Bonnie recalls JT Eilers telling her, “Mark will have a spot for you after you graduate”.

A year after graduating, Bonnie was indeed offered a position at Eilers Dental as a dental hygienist. Bonnie loves making a difference in her patients’ lives, building relationships and treating each patient as if they were a member of her own family. She lives in Happy Valley with her Fiancé, Jason, son Eugene, and soon to be step kids, Megan and Lance. We can’t forget about their fur-baby Oakley, a 2 year old Golden Retriever, who has the whole family smitten. In her spare time, Bonnie enjoys hiking with Oakley, taking their trailer on camping adventures, exercising, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
