Meet Our Dental Hygienists

MEREDITH LAPATRA

Meredith Lapatra

I have worked as a Dental Hygienist since 2014 and I can’t imagine doing anything else! I grew up in Twin Falls, Idaho and attended Boise State University where I received my Associate of Science degree. I then transferred to Idaho State University and graduated in 2013 with my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I joined the team at Salmon Dental Center as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2014. During my off time I take full advantage of the outdoor activities this area has to offer. I love living in Salmon and having the opportunity to serve this wonderful community.

LACEY LUFKIN

Lacey Lufkin

I have had the privilege of being part of the Salmon Dental Center team since 2012. Growing up in the Lemhi Valley, I graduated from high school with aspirations to be a dental hygienist. I attended CSI in Twin Falls for 2 years, where I was a member of the college rodeo team. I completed my education at ISU in Pocatello, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. It is very gratifying for me, as a hygienist, to provide care to my patients in a calm and caring atmosphere where their comfort and wellbeing is the main concern. Another passion of mine is family! I cannot spend enough time with my husband Dillon, our children and our family who live nearby.

I have been working in the field of dentistry since 2004. I received a Technical Certificate in Dental Assisting from the College of Southern Idaho in 2003. I then graduated from Laramie County Community College in Cheyenne, Wyoming with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2009. I enjoy building a rapport with each patient I see as well as educating patients on how to achieve optimal oral health. I reside in Challis with my husband, two children and three dogs. In my spare time I enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer from hiking and camping to hunting and fishing.

I feel extremely fortunate to be part of the Salmon Dental Center team! I have worked in dentistry for more than 15 years in several positions including Receptionist, Dental Assistant, Dental Hygiene Assistant and as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I received my Expanded Function Dental Assisting Certificate from Idaho State University which later inspired me to continue my education at the College of Southern Idaho where I graduated with honors with my Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. My family, including my husband and 5 children, love living in Salmon and enjoy being part of such a wonderful community. As a Registered Dental Hygienist my focus is to provide quality care for patients and educate them about their optimal oral health. I am committed to providing a comfortable and positive experience for my patients.

Bonnie

Bonnie Anglin

Salmon Dental Center has been my workplace home for more than 42 years! I started with the late Richard R. Smith, DDS as a dental assistant in 1978. In 1981 I received my CDA and EFDA from College of Eastern Idaho and wore many hats during those formative years. Since June of 2007 I have had the extreme pleasure to work for Mark S. Oliverson, DMD. The opportunity to experience diversity in dental treatment and the excellence of application by Dr. Oliverson sparked my desire to expand my own knowledge and willingness to grow. My duties have varied from dental assistant to office manager over the years and finally with retirement in 2019, I felt satisfied with my dental career. However, I am back working again with Dr. Oliverson and this fantastic crew! I am immensely proud and humbled to do so and I serve as the Insurance Coordinator. My husband Kelly and I met in the Lemhi Valley and raised our three children in Tendoy. We own the Tendoy General Store and thoroughly enjoy working together. I love to spend my free time hunting, fishing, biking, golfing, snowmobiling, boating and anything in the beautiful outdoors of Lemhi County! To this day, I remain passionate about helping patients and receive great satisfaction from knowing each of them along with assisting them to make Salmon Dental Center their dental care home!

I enjoy being part of a dynamic dental office and seeing the genuine gratitude our community has for Dr. Oliverson and the excellent care he provides.
