Spencer Burnham, DMD

“I love dentistry because it allows me to do something meaningful and rewarding as a career. I enjoy helping people get out of pain, restoring confidence in their smiles, and the opportunity to build long-term relationships with the patients who trust me with their care.”

Good to know

  • I studied Business Management and Hospitality Management at BYU-Hawaii and graduated with a double major in 2004.
  • In 2010, I enrolled at the University of Utah as a Biology major in preparation for Dental School. I was admitted to Roseman University of Health Sciences in 2012 and graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2016.

Fun to know

  • I grew up in Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, a small agricultural town about four hours east of Vancouver. I fell in love with Medford when looking for a place to settle in the Northwest because it reminds me of home (but with a better winter).
  • In my spare time, I enjoy water-skiing, camping, playing guitar, and spending time with my wife and three children.

I feel incredibly privileged that I can use my education to contribute to the oral health of my hometown. I enjoy being able to provide quality care for my patients in a welcoming, comfortable environment.”

Shannon

Office Manager

“I work at the front desk greeting patients with a smile. I make it my goal for you to feel at home and comfortable in our lovely office. I have been in the dental field for over 8 years, and I love using that knowledge to help each patient achieve their optimal dental care experience. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my beautiful daughter, Madison, as well as with my dog, Kalvin. I enjoy doing fun activities with friends and family.”

Laura

Laura

Treatment Coordinator

“As the treatment coordinator, it’s my joy to help each patient understand their proposed treatment plan and to get them scheduled promptly. With almost 9 years in the dental field, I enjoy using my skills to help each patient to the fullest, so everyone leaves with a clear understanding of their treatment, as well as a smile. I am a native of Southern Oregon, and in my spare time, I enjoy getting outside with my family, gardening, and crafting. I love having the opportunity to get to know every one of our amazing patients, and I look forward to meeting you!”

Kelly

Kelly

Insurance Coordinator

“Hi, my name is Kelly. I was a dental assistant for over 30 years, and now I am working as the RVDC Insurance Coordinator. Verifying your insurance information and coverage as well as answering any questions you may have about your insurance is my main goal to help ensure your visit goes as smoothly as possible.

My favorite activity is being outdoors with my husband and family. During the warm weather, I enjoy camping and kayaking, as well as having friends gathered around our firepit. I love creating things for the people I care about to enjoy and have branched out recently into woodworking. Whether it’s a cutting board, a jewelry box, or an amazing glass-beaded frame, each project makes me smile. I’m excited to see you and look forward to helping in any way I can.”

Lori

Lori

RDH, Dental Hygienist

“I have worked here as a registered dental hygienist for 12 years. This has given me enough time to get to know my patients and detect subtle changes in their mouths over time. I love educating my patients on how to improve their overall health. Making that connection is important, and I love getting people excited about improving their teeth and gums! At home, I live with my husband, Phil, our two children, Anna and Ben, and our dog Mazy. My family and I like to hike and camp together!”

Denise

Denise

RDH, Dental Hygienist

“Welcome! I’m Denise, and I’ve worked as a registered dental hygienist for 13+ years. One of my favorite aspects of being a hygienist is the opportunity to educate our patients and help them prevent dental issues with proper at-home care. I moved from the East Coast to Southern Oregon 35 years ago and couldn’t be happier. While I enjoy being outside in the sun on the occasional hike, my main passions are Disney and College sports. I used to play baseball in high school, and that joy and enthusiasm has never left me. I look forward to getting to talk with all of our patients at each visit and value the opportunity to build long-lasting relationships.”

With a passion for dentistry and being a lifelong native of Southern Oregon, I love having the opportunity to help those in our community with their dental needs.

Cherise

Cherise

EFDA, Dental Assistant

“Hi there! I have been an EFDA-certified dental assistant for 21 years, and a resident of Southern Oregon for 29 years. My favorite thing about being an assistant is the opportunity to build relationships with our patients. Making you feel like family when you are here is my number one goal, and being given the opportunity to work in an environment where everyone else feels that way too is a wonderful thing!

When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my 2 children. I can’t get enough of the bright sunshine our valley offers. Some of my favorite activities are camping, fishing, gardening, and having BBQs with friends and family. On the days when the refreshing rain keeps us indoors, you’ll find me watching true crime documentaries curled up with the animals. I look forward to getting to know all of you!”

Saysha

Saysha

Sterile Technician

“Hello, I’m Saysha! I’m the team’s Sterile Technician, meaning it’s my job to make sure all the dental instruments used are clean and sterile for each patient’s visit. I have lived in the area my entire life with my parents and 15 siblings. I recently graduated from a local art school where I was able to explore my passion, especially watercolor painting. My favorite way to spend time when not creating art is to be outdoors in Rogue Valley enjoying the sunshine and hiking. Let me know if you have any good hiking trails I should try out!”

“This is the BEST office I’ve ever been to! I have had a fear of dentists in the past and have tried several. Dr. Taucher is patient, kind, and exceedingly gentle. He’s helped me with cavities, replacing old fillings, root canals, crowns, & teeth whitening. His staff is kind, efficient, and beyond helpful!”

Emily H.

“Every single staff member at this office is AMAZING and very CARING! Honest, hard-working, straightforward, and amazing customer service. I had full upper extractions and dentures made here, and I can’t express enough how wonderful everyone was through the whole process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for ANY dental needs.”

David K.

“Dr. Taucher is fantastic — and all of the work he has done so far has been meticulous, pain-free, and never-rushed. He always takes time to explain what is going on, but also to talk through my dental plan in detail and answer any questions.”
