Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Emeri Beeler

I was Born and raised in Chihuahua, Mexico, and moved to the United States in 2014–first to Kentucky to pursue my Master’s, then to Puerto Rico. Finally, I found what I like to call home here in the peninsula, where I plan to start and raise our family with my husband Michael. I enjoy living and working in such a close-knit community.

My first round of dental education resulted in earning a DDS from UANL (Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León), after which I worked for a year in Monterrey, Mexico as a dentist and as a Junior Faculty at the university. Because I am passionate about research and wanted to do some of my own to contribute to the dental field, I then earned my Master’s in Oral Biology at the University of Louisville. For my second round of dental school (which was necessary to get my license when I moved to the states), I earned a DMD from the University of Puerto Rico.

When not caring for patients, I love baking and cake decorating. The combination of diverse activities and scenery this area has to offer has converted me into an outdoorsy person, so I also enjoy moderate hiking, kayaking, and exploring the Peninsula with my husband.

The Laurel Dental Clinic team has become my family away from home, and we hope you feel just as welcome here. We look forward to seeing you!

Why did you choose dentistry?

In a way, it feels like dentistry chose me. I was blessed to be born into a family of dentists; my father is an Orthodontist and my mother a general dentist, and I spent a significant part of my childhood in their dental office. I loved to sneak into the waiting room and just start conversations with some of the regular patients, and to this day they still ask about me when they come in. As I grew up I saw how rewarding it could be to provide quality care and to give people their oral health and smiles back, and since then I’ve known that dentistry was the path I wanted to take.

Who is your hero, and why?

My hero is my Mother, Cris Flores. She is an exceptional mother and wife who, while working as a full-time dentist, also ran our house and raised 3 kids. You’ll always find her with a big smile and her heart of gold taking care of someone who is sick, running fundraisers, volunteering, listening with compassion, praying for someone in need, or simply going out of her way to make someone’s day better. No matter how full her plate already is, she always makes time and has extra energy to help her loved ones and her community. For those and many reasons more, even as an adult I can say that my hero is still my Mom.

Dr. Troy DeDecker

I grew up in San Francisco, California, and received my BS degree in Biology from the University of Utah, where I also conducted research in Orthopedics. I then attended the Master’s program in Animal Behavior at San Diego State University, where I studied the behavioral ecology of dolphins and whales. From there, I went on to study dentistry at the University of Southern California, where I earned my DDS degree.

Following graduation, my wife Tatiana and I moved to Utah where I owned and operated a successful private dental practice for over ten years. While our daughter, a Graphic Designer, stayed in Utah, we ultimately fell in love with the nature surrounding the Port Angeles area and made it our home. Here I enjoy adventures in the wild such as snowboarding, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, hiking and backpacking.

I’m excited to be here at Laurel Dental Clinic, and thankful to work with such a superb, expert dental team. We all look forward to caring for you and your family!

The whole staff was very welcoming, relaxed, proficient & fun. I had a chipped crown limited visit but they allowed me a full exam which was actually less expensive. It was a joy to be under Amy's care; she did her job well & she was also fun. Dr. Dedecker was new to me but I immediately felt relaxed when he showed me his shoes with Orca's on them. He was thorough, gentle also fun & didn't charge me to smooth the chipped crown. I keep saying fun but it really was. Thank you all. Pleaseupdate your website.Also had a cleaning by Dana. She was professional, gentle, proficient & very pleasant~ Again; a fun experience.

I am the world's biggest baby when it comes to my teeth, I am ALWAYS treated with kindness and caring. Dr. Nobel is the best! He gives me all the options before making a decision, he does great work, he is kind, caring, and honest. The staff are just as good and always try to accommodate my issues. There is not a better clinic on the peninsula for dental care, from checkups and fillings to implants and cosmetic dentistry.
