As your trusted family dentist in Springfield, our team at McKenzie River Dental remains committed to providing every patient with the compassionate dental care they need to look and feel their best. As our practice grows and includes more community members, we’re excited to announce that a new partner has joined the McKenzie River Dental family – Dr. Leeann Welch.
Dr. Leeann Welch is an empathetic, practical, and methodical provider, and she shares the same philosophy of compassionate and competent care that all of you expect and deserve.
Dr. Welch received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health in Mesa, Arizona in 2012. While attending dental school, Dr. Welch completed her Masters in Public Health degree. Dr. Welch completed an AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) Residency with Lutheran Medical Center. She has been practicing as a general dentist for over 10 years (24 total years in the dental profession), three of which were with Indian Health Service, a career path similar to Dr. Schilt’s.
As a Springfield High School, Lane Community College, and University of Oregon graduate, Dr. Welch and her husband, Kyle, have chosen to return to the area to raise their two children where they continue their love of hiking, fishing, and recreational sports. Dr. Welch has a passion for dentistry. She prioritizes providing quality care while creating lasting relationships. She can’t wait to meet you!
Your oral health matters. That’s why we’re so pleased to welcome another skilled and experienced dentist to our team. We cannot wait until you get the opportunity to meet Dr. Welch, your new family dentist in Springfield! We know that you’ll be just as comfortable and relaxed with her as with Dr. Schilt.
Our current staff of friendly faces await during your next appointment, but don’t be surprised if you see a few more new faces. Our staff is expanding to offer you even more excellent service and the type of advanced dental care you’ve come to expect from our team at McKenzie River Dental.
