Our Staff


Frankie, Charity, Brenda and Tami are the other half of our family.  Frankie, Brenda and Tami are long time residents of Corvallis and Albany while Charity lived in Jeffersons.


Frankie came with over 10 years of experience working with children as a Kindergarten Assistant at Santiam Christian Elementary and has several years of experience working with adults with disabilities. Along with Dr. Yao, Frankie spearheaded the formation of the practice in Scio. She is the practice medical assistant and is a certified phlebotomist, providing on-site laboratory access as a convenience for our patients.  She is your advocate and will always be there to assist you with any needs you may have. 


Charity has over 20 years of dental experience, working as a dental assistant with Dr. Johnson's brother here in Albany.  We were thrilled when she decided to try something different. 


Tami works behind the scenes. Unfortunately you probably won't get a chance to meet her since she works here in the evening.  She knows everything about insurance and claims.  


Brenda brings over 20 years of medical experience, including practice management and workers comp triage. She is an incredible asset as a facilitator when it comes to dealing with insurance carriers. She has worked in several different sub-specialty groups including Orthopedics, Physical Medicine and Podiatry. With her vast professional knowledge, she keeps us organized and she will help remind you of your appointments, check on benefits and advocate your care with your health plans if such need arises. Outside of work, she was the guardian angel to many unwanted animals. At one time, she cared for up to 13 animals, trying to find them homes. She will also be watching over you, ensuring that you have a favorable experience when you come for a visit. 


With their cheery dispositions and strong desire to help others, our staff brings warmth and comfort to the practice.
