Dr. Marci Aplin-Scott, Dentist/Owner

I am a true Central Oregon native, born and raised in Bend.  I came about my love of dentistry naturally as my father, Lowell “Doc” Aplin, practiced in Bend from 1939 until 1977.  Well respected and ingenious in his day, I vowed to be kinder and gentler.  I was a dental hygienist for 7 years before going back to OHSU  for my dental degree, graduating with honors.  I grew up involved with sports and the outdoors including ski racing, horses and tennis.  My true passion outside of dentistry is horses, both training and showing.  My goal as a dentist is to address my patient’s fears and apprenension of dentistry and to provide that “WOW” factor with cosmetic dentistry.  I am very focused on the periodontal health of my patients and educating them on their dental needs.

Christine - Office Administrator

I started working in dental offices when I was 15 years old.  I’ve worked in both the front office and as a dental assistant.  I’m certified for Expanded Function Dental Assisting and the taking of x-rays. 

I enjoy snow skiing, hiking, working out, cooking, and volunteering at The Shepherd’s House.  I am blessed to work with such wonderful women and enjoy getting to know our awesome patients!

                                           Michele - Practice Coordinator

Hello!  I started my dental front office career in Alaska in 1987.  I joined Dr. Marci Aplin-Scot in 2007, where it has all been a very rewarding career.  

I enjoy the outdoors!  Love hiking, travel and I am a total beach bum at heart.  I look forward to meeting you!

I graduated from Pennsylvania College of Technology in 1999 with an Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene and a Bachelor of Science degree in Radiology in 1995 from OIT.  I find it rewarding to help patients achieve optimum oral health and wellness.  I strive to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their appointment by gentle but thorough instrumentation.

I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, running, working out and spending time with my two teenage daughters.  

                                             Teri - Dental Hygienist

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree with honors from Oregon Health Sciences University and regularly attend continuing education courses.  I have practiced dental hygiene in Central Oregon for many years, providing thorough, gentle, individualized care.  

Away from work I enjoy traveling, hiking, camping and cross country skiing with my husband and two sons. 

                                          Malisa - Dental Assistant

I graduated from the Dental Assisting program at Central Oregon Community College in 2001 and began my career as a Dental Assistant.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, baking and doing various crafts.
