Marcela joined Troutdale Dental in the summer of 2019 and has been a welcomed addition to our team ever since. Her education landed her as a dental assistant after exploring general studies and realizing she has a passion for helping people and transforming lives. She grew up in Hermiston, OR near the banks of the Columbia River in Eastern Oregon. Growing up in the “Watermelon Capital” of Oregon, she has many fond memories of growing up in a small town and all that comes with it.
Marcela fell in love with the dental field and couldn’t be happier about contributing to the kindness and compassion the team gives to it’s patients. When she’s not chairside with Dr. Hale and Brinton, she enjoys spending time with her husband, friends and her new puppy, Royce. Marcela is an avid football and hockey fan, cheering on her Steelers and Penguins with those Terrible Towels. She has also been known to throw down on new recipes in the kitchen. Ask her about her latest kitchen conquest next time you’re in for a checkup!

On my pizza you will find.... Pepperoni, sausage, bacon and hot sauce!
If I could remake any movie and star in it, it would be... She’s the Man.
