Dr. Bergquam Newberg Dentist - Dr. Bergquam's Caring Staff

Meet Our Staff

Charlene – Office Manager


I grew up in Eastern Oregon and moved to Portland after college. I have been in the dental profession front office position since 1996 when I changed careers and a friend took a chance and hired me. I became Dr. Bergquam’s office manager in 2005 after he started his practice in Newberg. It has been an interesting and fun profession to learn and grow with Dr. Bergquam and our patients.

I’ve had some interesting  fun times raising my two daughters and now I get to spoil my granddaughter. Some of my hobbies include golfing, cooking, gardening, traveling, and decorating.

Gina – Hygienist

I have spent most of my life in the Newberg area.  I love the small town feel and easy access to the beach, city, mountains, etc.

In 1987 I earned an Associate of Science – Biology degree at Portland Community College and in 1989 an Associate of Arts & Science – Dental Hygiene at Clark College.

My husband and I spend as much time as possible with our two teenage children, realizing time has and always will go much too quickly.

Greta – Dental Assistant

I graduated from Portland Community College in 1987 and have been a dental assistant for over 20 years.

I have been married to my husband for 12 years and we have 5 very wonderful children and six wonderful grandchildren.  I enjoy camping, the outdoors, and spending lots of time with my family.

Linda – Hygienist

I graduated from OHSU in dental hygiene longer ago than I care to admit!  I love our patients and my work!

I grew up in Newberg and have lived other places.  I enjoy family and friends here.  My husband Dennis and I have been married over 30 years and have two grown children Eric, 28, who lives in Southern California and Lindsay, 25, who lives in Seattle, Wa.  We enjoy running, hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, traveling, entertaining, and involvement in our church.

Renee – Front Office

I’ve been in the dental field for about 35 years.  After graduating from dental assisting school I started to work for a dentist in Newberg and was his assistant for about 29 1/2 years.  Dr. Bergquam then bought the practice and I worked as his assistant for a few years before I decided to make a change to the front office where I am now.

I was born and raised in Newberg and have enjoyed getting to know our patients over the years.   Out of the office I enjoy spending time with my family. I love the outdoors!! Sun, water and snow.
