Registered Dental Hygienist

I love helping patients develop and keep a beautiful smile. Each of them has different needs and goals, and working together we can achieve great oral health. I enjoy the relationships that grow while I clean a patient’s teeth and perform other dental hygiene practices. A lot of my day is focused on patient education. I help them understand why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy and the best way to do so between visits.

I’m married with two daughters. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family. I also enjoy the outdoors, traveling, and baking. Oh, and I’ve been skydiving four times!

It’s a great feeling to see how happy my patients are after their visit. Not only was their cleaning painless, but their mouth feels wonderfully clean and fresh. While I perform a variety of oral hygiene tasks, I talk with patients about their mouth. It’s important for people to understand the role dental health plays in overall body wellness. When they understand that connection, and make positive lifestyle changes, I’m happy. I want people to have healthy, lifelong smiles.

I’ve been married for more than 10 years and am the mother of two wonderful young daughters. Spending time with family and friends is a priority, especially on camping trips.

I enjoy getting to know our patients and their families, and becoming friends with them. We talk a lot, and laugh, during their visits, which creates a wonderful bond. It’s a joy to spend my days helping my friends develop healthy mouths and smiles. Patient education is a lot of my focus during visits. I want people to understand how keeping their mouth in great shape will not just keep their smile beautiful, but improve their overall health, too.

I have two daughters, both currently in high school. They’re very involved with sports, including soccer, volleyball, and basketball. Spending time with and supporting them is important to me, and I love Michigan football.

I love dental assisting because I like to make people happy about their smile.  I enjoy working with people, whether they are scared or enjoy going to the dentist.

I enjoy the outdoors, camping, hunting, mountain biking, fishing and most of all walking my little dachshunds.

Receptionist

I love seeing smiling faces as patients arrive for their visits, and then seeing more smiles and hearing their thanks as they leave. Working at our front desk means I greet and get to know everyone who comes to us for their dental care. I enjoy learning about who they are and love hearing the latest news about their families. I’m always available to help patients. I schedule appointments at times that work with their busy schedules. I also strive to provide reassurance to someone who’s a bit worried about an upcoming procedure. Often, a warm smile and a few gentle words are all that’s needed to settle their mind.

I have lived in Michigan all my life, but love to travel.  I am married and I have two adult sons that are my pride and joy.

I enjoy getting to know our patients.  I want them to feel good about coming to the dentist and make them feel like they are visiting friends.  

I've been married for 11 years and moved back to Michigan about 1 year ago from Phoenix where we lived for 9 years.  We enjoy traveling and spending time with friends and family.

My career in the dental field began when I was 15 years old, working as a dental assistant after school. I then expanded my duties from dental assisting to front desk, office management, dental consulting, dental software and digital x-ray software training. The advancements in dentistry and dental technology have been an amazing experience. 

It is very important to me to educate our patients on their dental procedures and insurance coverage. Establishing a relationship with the patients in our practice is very important. A patient's comfort and heatlhy smile are #1!

I have been blessed with three children, three grandchildren and all the friends I have made thru my life's journey. I am looking forward to making more friends at Dental 1.
