Meet Our Team


BethBeth is a registered dental hygienist who has been with Scott Roberson, DDS, FAGD since 2007. She is known to her patients for her friendly, caring personality, and her gentle approach to dentistry. One of her favorite aspects of her work is her friendly, interesting patients who truly have a vested interest in their oral health. When she is out of the office, Beth spends her time with her husband, Dale, and their children Lexie, Meghan, and Eric, and her extended family of two adorable Pomeranians and two cats. With her love of family, a penchant for outdoor sports and triathalons, and volunteer time spent with the LSW Booster Club, her favorite quote by Earl Nightingale certainly applies to the way she lives her life:

“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”


Jennifer has worked as a registered dental hygienist with Scott Roberson, DDS, FAGD since 2013 and has special certification in dental technology, periodontal therapy, and whole body health and aesthetics. While she loves the way her trusting patients form fast, long-term bonds with her, so she can assist in guiding them toward optimal oral health, they also have wonderful things to say about her. Patients appreciate Jennifer’s calm persona and her dedication to excellent care and putting their comfort first. She is a volunteer with Missouri Mission of Mercy and a member of Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church. Away from work, Jennifer spends time with her husband, Richard, and their three cats. As an extension of her passion for reading, traveling, and landscaping, her favorite quote by Abraham Lincoln is no surprise:

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”


Melinda joined our team in 2007 as a dental assistant. She is now the Office Manager. Patients love her caring and compassionate approach. Away from the office, she enjoys quality time with her husband, their two children, and friends. She will tell you that her favorite quote is:

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.”



Debbie joined our team as a Dental Assistant in 2015. She obtained her degree from the Kansas City College of Medical and Dental Assisting. Her patients find Debbie to be soft-spoken, comforting, and very easy to talk to. Debbie enjoys helping patients understand their dental health, helping them achieve a healthier smile. She is a member of the Elks Lodge and has taken part in the Making Strides Walk for Breast Cancer. Outside of the office, Debbie enjoys spending time with two daughters, son-in-law, and her three grandchildren. She has a dog named Chloe and likes reading, football, and gardening. Her favorite quote is:

“It can be done.”
