Our Staff

Our highly experienced Bend dental staff can do all aspects of care, from scheduling appointments, to discussing care options to assisting with the most complex bone graft and implant procedures.

Laura, BS, EFDA
Laura began working with Dr Hodgert in 1989 after several years practicing in Florida. As our practice linchpin, she knows dentistry, client care and Dr Hodgert. Laura’s had four children since starting with MoD. Surprise secret: Her first college degree was in airport management, and she does beautiful art.

Nancy, BS, RDA
Nancy is Dr Hodgert’s hygienist. In her fourth decade of preventing dental disease, she is still enthused about dentistry and exceptional patient care. When not cleaning teeth, Nancy can be found with her horses, competing nationally in western pleasure.

Kees Diepenheim, CDLT
Like Dr Hodgert, Kees is a true artist and exacting craftsman. His special mediums are gold and porcelain. He was first trained by his Dutch father — a legendary professor at University of Washington School of Dentistry. With Dr Hodgert since 2000, Kees has been a dental professional for four decades. His brilliance and art makes us all look good.
