Meet Our Team

I love seeing the kids come in so excited to be here. It is very rewarding to meet and work with new families every day. In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and our 4 teenage kids. We are an "on-the-go" family! My hobbies include camping, traveling, cooking and crafting. One thing that people might not know about me is that there are 159 immediate family members on my mom’s side! We do so much together throughout the year and the holiday gatherings are so much fun. We are a close knit family and many of my cousins are like siblings to me. We had the first ever family photo taken this summer. We were grouped by families with all of the little ones in the front. Our photographer had to stand on a very tall ladder to get us all in the photo. It was a bit chaotic, but the picture is amazing!

I love working here because I get to work with friends that feel like family! We have the opportunity to work with such fun-loving patients and families, too. My husband and I have a 13 year old daughter and an 11 year old son. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, cheering on my kids' teams at their sporting events, running, reading and Pinterest projects. I love to travel to any place that has sun, sand and the ocean! Ever since I was young, Australia and New Zealand have been on my radar. With quite a bit of Irish in my blood, it would also be exciting to visit extended family in Ireland and experience our heritage.

I love watching how excited the kids are to come to the dentist. My husband and I have 3 boys. I enjoy watching my boys play sports, spending time with family and friends, gardening, running, camping and making crafts. If I could travel to anywhere in the world, it would be Australia. My parents went there on their honeymoon and talked about how gorgeous it is. I know their pictures don’t do it justice. From the Great Barrier Reef to the outback, I think it would be awesome!

Working with kids is the best - I love it! My husband and I have 3 children, and we love camping and traveling together. Someday I would love to travel to Greece. I like learning the history of different places, and would love to see the beautiful beaches there. And I love Greek food!

I love working with all of the different age groups that we see, from the little ones who are really shy, to the older ones getting ready to head to college. I am a busy mom of 2 sporty boys. My husband and I are always running to games, practices or meetings. I am also the Cub Master for Pack 57. In my free time, I like to garden, play with the boys and our dog. I also like to go fishing, camping and just being outside. I would love to go to Ireland someday. My grandma came to the United States from Ireland as a little girl, so it would be fun to see where she came from. It looks so beautiful there!

Working with kids is my passion. They make my job very rewarding! I am married to my husband Chad, and we have 3 children. The outdoors is where I enjoy spending my time, as well as watching my kids at their athletic events. I am very proud of my family and all that we have accomplished together.

I love talking to the kids and watching how excited they are to come to their dental appointment. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have a son and daughter. I enjoy traveling, crafting, camping and watching my kids play hockey. I would like to travel back to Norway. I’ve been there twice and hope to have another trip in the near future. I have more relatives in Norway than I do in America. One of my cousins in Norway is a dear friend and we text nearly every day.

I love working with kids each day. I am married with two adult children and a daughter-in-law. My hobbies include working on my house and spending time with my family and pets. I am most proud of my children (now adults) and all that they have accomplished.

My favorite part of working in a pediatric dental office is helping a new little patient learn about going to the dentist. They might come in nervous, but they leave happy! My husband and I have 3 daughters - one is brand new little baby! We enjoy cooking, playing with our German Shepherd and planning our next trip to Disney World.

Jennifer

I love meeting the fun patients each day and working for two great doctors. You just never know what is going to come out of a child's mouth! I enjoy camping with my 3 children and going to our family cabin in Canada. We all love animals and have a mini petting zoo at our house. When I have time, I love to read. The one thing that I am most proud of is my kids. Sometimes I look at them and I am amazed that I made something so beautiful and special. Someday I would love to go on a dental mission trip to help those in need of dental care.

It is fun to work with kids and help them have a great visit! I am married with two boys that are in high school. I enjoy traveling, camping, gardening and spending time with my family. One thing on my bucket list is to travel to the British Virgin Islands of Turks and Caicos.
