Hi! I am Shawn Murray, owner of Coastal Denture Clinic. I have been happily serving the Oregon coast for the last 22 years. When I first saw the view of Florence coming down Highway 101 and looked at the sand and the ocean, I was hooked. I moved to Florence and purchased this denture practice in 1990 from Tacoma, Washington, where I owned a dental lab. I am a confirmed cat lover with four sweet things: Sven, Sylvia, Sunshine and Ms. Molly. I am a gardener and a scrap booker and love to drive my John Deere tractor.

In 1996, I was selected as one of 5000 community heroes and was privileged to carry the Olympic Torch to move the Olympic Flame from Greece to Atlanta Georgia where Mohammed Ali ignited the torch for the 1996 Olympic Games. This was one of the high points of my life. I was an Olympic athlete in my own mind.

I am the chair of the Board of Denture Technology which is the board that is the licensing authority.  This is my second time serving on this board, and also my second term.  I feel it is very important to be involved in my growing profession.  I also serve as the Treasurer of the National Denturist Association and hope to help other states legalize Denturism.

The Eugene office was opened in 2001. Nancy Sobottka and I are the owners of DentureCare Associates. Nancy does all the advertising and most of the bookkeeping for DentureCare and Coastal Denture Clinic.

 Hello. I am Nancy Sobottka. I am a Wisconsin transplant and have been an Oregonian for over 23 years. I prefer rain and clouds to snow, sleet, 40 below, humidity and mosquitoes. I was a Saturday Market participant in the early 70's and worked for Bi-Mart in the buying office and in administration at the Eugene Public Library. I live in Florence and do most of my work for DentureCare and Coastal Denture Clinic from home via computer.

I am mother to three, grandmother to four, and great grandmother to eight boys and one girl.  They all live in America's Dairyland e.g. Wisconsin.  One son left moo country and lives in California.  While semi-retired, I enjoy gardening and scrapbooking/card making.  As the co-owner of DentureCare I am responsible for most of the bookkeeping.  I enjoy working with Shawn and our great staff.  They are all conscientious, reliable, caring, hardworking, smart and fun to be around.  Come in and meet them and see for yourself.

Jack came to DentureCare in January 2010 as part of the Injured Workers Program through the State of Oregon's Workers Compensation Division.  Prior to joining our staff, he was a heavy equipment mechanic.  He completed the training program in February of 2011 and immediately became a full time DentureCare employee.  Jack is now a denture lab technician specializing in pouring and grinding models and processing relines and repairs.  He also sets up bite blocks and process and finish dentures.  On a personal note, Jack has two children, a boy 19 and a girl 22.  He and his dog, Drake, are good buddies and Drake accompanies him on many hunting and fishing expeditions.  As you can tell, Jack is a great lover of the outdoors.

Corinne is our receptionist at DentureCare.   She has been with us since September of 2010 and has been a wonderful addition to our DentureCare family.  She brings with her Medical experience from formally working in a Cardio Pulmonary department as a Certified Cardiographic Technician.  She was born, raised and still lives in the small community of Crow just west of Eugene.  Corinne is a mother of 4 (2 boys and 2 girls) and a very proud Grandma/Mommy's Momma to 6 adorable grandchildren.  She also has 4 step children and 10 step grandchildren living in Canada.  In her spare time, what little she has, she enjoys gardening, cooking, reading, watching movies and traveling.  However, spending time with family is what brings her the most joy.  She is happily married to a great guy who just happens to be her best friend and they enjoy traveling to tropical places together and to Canada to visit family.  Corinne enjoys her job here at DentureCare very much and it shows.  Our patients love her friendly, caring personality.
