Our Team
JOCELYN, Dental Hygienist, RDH
I was born and raised here in the Rogue Valley and attended the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls where I graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene and a minor in Psychology. In addition to oral health, my professional passion and focus is natural whole-body health. Everything is intricately connected within us and around us. My husband and I met during school at OIT and together we have 2 wonderfully goofy kids. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my kiddos and the ever growing menagerie of animals on our mini farm.

CASSIE, Chairside Assistant, EFDA
I am originally from the Bay Area, but moved here with my family to Medford when I was very young. I graduated from High School in 2004, after which I attended Abdill Career College of Dental Assisting. I worked as a dental assistant for a year and a half in Eugene, OR then returned to Medford in 2006 and have been working as an assistant here ever since. I now have my EFDA certificate which I'm so proud of!

SHANNON, Chairside Assistant, EFDA
I became a proud member of Dr. Jake Layer's dental team in February 2014. Working as an Expanded Function Dental Assistant has given me a fantastic opportunity to help educate and care for the best patients Southern Oregon has to offer. Outside of work, I enjoy time with my husband of over 40 years, our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. Together we enjoy camping, cooking, and watching movies. In my spare time I love to kick off my shoes, grab my laptop and write fiction.

CARLY, Administrative Assistant
I was born and raised in the Rogue Valley and graduated from high school in 2013 then attended Rogue Community College shortly after. In 2018 I graduated from Southern Oregon Dental Assisting Education. I enjoy shooting, camping, fishing, hunting and spending time with my husband, two children, and two dogs. Currently I am working towards becoming EFDA certified and Radiology certified.

What We're Doing Now
office exterior
When you come to our office, you will see the big stand-up sign by our front door. We are asking that you remain in your car until we come out to greet you. We'll take your temperature, ask you some questions, and then invite you in. You'll notice the clear acrylic barriers at the front desk. We'll ask you to wash your hands before and after your visit with us. Some of us will be wearing masks, respirators, face-shields, and knee-length lab gowns. In the back, as we have always done, we are busy sterilizing instruments, sanitizing treatment areas, and assuring sanitary workflow. In the common areas of our office we are now taking extra measures to sanitize high-touch surfaces regularly. In an effort to conserve PPE (masks, gloves, etc) we are also doing more consultation via phone or video conferencing.

While there are some striking visible changes to the patient-experience in our practice we're holding on to the human connection. We are striving to live our mission statement values to "educate and empower...through genuine relationships, excellent communication, and professional dental care." It is our desire that you are heard and that you find hope and success.
