Dr. Melanie Rawlings was born in Austin, Texas & the novel pleasure of grey, rainy days has never worn off. For her undergraduate studies, she attended the University of WI – Madison, receiving her Bachelor of Science in biochemistry with a double major in Spanish. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of MN in Minneapolis, moved out to the Pacific Northwest, met an Oregonian and decided to stay.
Whatever a patient’s initial dental circumstances and goals, Dr. Rawlings is passionate about providing the information and care needed to get the patient to a place of health that he or she can maintain and enjoy for years to come. Dr. Rawlings is a member of the American Dental Association, state and county levels of the ADA, Oregon’s Medical Reserve Corps, the American Academy of Clear Aligners, practice research networks and local study clubs. Outside of the office, Dr. Rawlings can be found on the running trails, at the stable, or at home ‘helping’ with endless home remodeling projects and caring for an expanding number and variety of animals.
