Office Manager

meet the family

Hi! My name is Tanali. I have been in the dental field for 16 years and am fortunate to have been part of Dr. Hughes’ staff since 2005. I enjoy my days in the office scheduling appointments, billing insurance, and making sure our schedule flows smoothly to ensure our staff and patients are happy. I do take a moment or two to enjoy the wonderful view of the lake; it is a constantly changing canvas.

Some of my favorite things in life include the magic of Disneyland, travel, cooking, and my book group.  I am lucky to have a close group of girlfriends from high school and college.  I truly enjoy spending time outside the office with my coworkers.  I am a proud mom of three grown children.


Front Office

meet the family

Hello! My name is Kasey and I work in the front office here at Lakeside Pediatric Dentistry. I have worked in the dental field since 2007. Coming to the dentist should be something to look forward to, so I’m here to greet you with a smile, answer your phone calls, and make appointments for you.

I love to travel and have had the opportunity to visit five of the seven continents. I also enjoy volunteering in the community, movies, reading, music (singing and listening), running, and of course shopping!


Dental Hygienist

meet the family

Welcome! I’m Jessica and I’m one of the hygienists here at Lakeside Pediatric Dentistry. I’ve worked with Dr. Hughes since 2005, and I love giving each patient a clean and healthy smile. I enjoy getting to know each family and watching the younger patients grow up.

In my free time I enjoy trying new restaurants with my husband, playing with our boys and watching their sporting events, running with our puppy Pippa, cooking, reading, attending concerts, and being active in my church. I especially enjoy the outdoors and really love Lakeside’s beautiful view.

I’m Cathy and I’ve been a hygienist here at Lakeside Pediatric Dentistry for more than 20 years. I have enjoyed helping a generation of kids grow up with healthy smiles and now I’m seeing some of the next generation as well!

When I’m not at work, I love to travel, walk with my pug Jilli, and cook yummy meals for my family and friends.

Dental Hygienist


Coming to the dentist should be fun and something to look forward to! I enjoy building positive experiences to make this happen for all of our patients. I grew up in the Portland area, attended Wilson and Jackson high schools, then Oregon State University, and graduated in 1973 from Oregon Health and Science University in dental hygiene.

I’ve been working in a pediatric dental office since 1988 and with Dr. Hughes since 2002.  I live in Lake Oswego with my husband Rick, our dog Lucy, our cat Callie, two goats, and 15 chickens.  I enjoy cooking, knitting, golf, and gardening.  I have three daughters and four grandchildren that keep my life very busy and fun.

EFDA / Dental Assistant


 Hello!  My name is Lisa and I am a dental assistant here at Lakeside Pediatric Dentistry.  I have been a dental assistant since 1999 but took some time off to raise my three wonderful kids.  I enjoy watching children’s fears melt away when they realize we make dentistry an enjoyable experience. 

I love spending time with my family and friends, working out, going to central Oregon, and watching my kids at their sporting activities.

Well, hello there! My name is Megan and I am a dental assistant. I have been in the dental field for ten years and have worked with Dr. Hughes since 2007. I have found that early education and positive experiences at the dentist can lead to a healthy, beautiful smile for years to come.

When I am not doing pranks in the office, I love going to concerts, playing with my two ill-behaved Yorkies, cheering on my nephews at their sporting events, knitting, cooking and baking, reading, trying new restaurants, watching and playing sports, Pinteresting, and spending time with my family and friends.
