TeriTeri - Scheduling Coordinator

On March 13, 2010, I married the man of my dreams, John Dean Fielding. I am a mother of three precious children, and along with my mother, Daphne, they have taught me many important things in life: surrendering all I have to Christ, selflessness, compassion, generosity and keeping the main thing, "the main thing!" They are my heroes!

I love gathering with my dear family and friends. They've all been such an amazing support to my children and me. God certainly knows who we need. He never ceases to amaze me!

One of my favorite things is to receive special coffee drinks (iced, non-fat decaf caramel latte or hot, non-fat decaf peppermint white mocha) at work. This is not a hint… just a fact!

I've been employed by Dr. Cai since 1996. I love my job and the women I work with. Dr. Cai and the women she hires consider it an honor and a privilege to serve our community. It is truly a very positive place to be. For that, I am grateful to Dr. Cai and these women. After all, we spend countless hours together.

I am a very blessed woman of God. I've experienced many challenges in my life, and I always come back to the same response: "God is faithful!" My hope is to live each day as though it was an amazing gift from God that I shouldn't waste! I thoroughly enjoy serving each person who comes my way.


LeslieLeslie - Vancouver Office Coordinator

Hi, I'm Leslie, and I live in La Center with my husband Brian.  I have raised two boys, Jared Jacob and have four grandchildren.  I decided to seek employment and was so lucky to find Dr. Cai. I cannot imagine finding a better place to work. What a group of girls, and we all truly love our patients! Anyone who knows me knows I like to talk.

Outside of work, my passions are spending time with my grandchildren snowmobiling, going to the dunes and camping.   Basically, I am up for anything outdoors. 
 I have been blessed with a wonderful life.


DebbieDebbie - Financial Coordinator

I married my husband Jay in 1992, and we had our  son Kaden, in 1998.  I also have two grown step-children who have families as well.

In my time away from work, I like being  in my happy place (my kitchen)  trying new fun restaurants and spending time with my little love Aussie Doodle Daphne.

I have worked for Dr. Cai since October 1996, and I really can't imagine life without Dr. Cai and the amazing girls I work with. We've became one big, happy family!



MarthaMartha - Patient Flow Coordinator

Hello, I have had the opportunity to work for Dr. Lauren Cai's for about four years now.....And counting!

I am newly married to my husband as of June 24th, 2023.  In our spare time we love to travel, go out to new restaurants and try breweries around the area.

Working for Dr. Cai has been rewarding in numerous ways and I am grateful to be a part of this team of ladies. 


Vanessa - Insurance Coordinator/Digital media specialist/Clinical Assistant

I am a lifelong resident of Cowlitz County and 1993  Kelso grad. My husband Tyson and I have two amazing daughters Presley and Payton.

The dental field was a path I wanted to take as a young adult and landed a job sterilizing in orthodontics at the age of 19. I was encouraged to try my skills as an orthodontic assistant and assisted for 17 years.

In 2012 I decided to cut back to part-time to be more involved with our daughters and their activities. Since then my focus has been insurance coordinator, digital media specialist and I still lend a hand orthodontic assisting from time to time.

In my spare time I still enjoy supporting our daughters at their activities, hosting family & friends, trying new delicious foods and I am super serious about my yearly planner? 

I am blessed to get to know all of our patients and their families. Welcome to our orthodontic family!

In my free time, I love to travel and spend quality time with friends and family.
Working here at Dr. Cai's office has been exciting and so much fun. I have made great friends here and look forward to what's ahead for us.
