Melinda Schelfhout, Dental Assistant

Mel has always enjoyed taking care of people and has an interest in health and the body. She also loves providing attentive dental care and enjoys getting to know our patients.

“The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping people in our close-knit community feel safe and cared for.”

Working as part of a dynamic and passionate team here at River Dental is also gratifying for Mel. “It’s a pleasure to work in such a fantastic environment and offer our patients the latest in technology.”
