I have been practicing dental hygiene for 24 years. I love my profession, and it is extremely rewarding building patient relationships and helping them achieve their oral health goals.

My husband and I have 3 boys. My older 2 boys have graduated and are working as apprentices. My youngest is in high school. We love spending time outdoors. The boys hunt, fish, and play sports while I try keeping pace with my favorite running partner (our German shorthair pointer)!



I graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree and a Certificate in Dental Hygiene. I strive to help my patients achieve their optimal dental health and goals in a comfortable environment. I live in Allen Park with my Husband and 3 children.



Graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science and was inducted into Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Honor Society. Certified in administering local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and CPR. I am a passionate Dental Hygienist who is devoted to educating patients on how to achieve and maintain a healthy smile. I take pride in providing patients with highest quality dental care and building long-term relationships.



I graduated in 2006 from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor’s degree in science of Dental Hygiene. I am also Certified in Local Anesthesia and Nitrous Oxide. While going to school I also worked as a dental assistant. I truly love the dental path I have chosen. It’s not often someone can say they love coming to work, but I can. It is my second family. While at home I love spending time with my family!! My husband James and I have 3 amazing children.



I’ve been assisting for 10 years but in my off time I love to spend time with my busy 4 year old and Great Dane Olive.



I have been saving the world one tooth at a time for more than 20 years. I started my long, illustrious career as a dental assistant way back in 2002 and have enjoyed every day of it. My time outside of work is predominantly spent taking care of my son and my four legged fur babies.



I have been a Dental Assistant for 21 years. I enjoy hanging out with my family of 3. I like watching and playing sports. My favorite part of my job is making the patient comfortable and making them smile.


Assistant/ Receptionist

I’m new to the dental field. I’ve been a registered medical assistant for almost 15 years, but I needed a change. I have a 5-year-old daughter and 2 bonus kids along with our dog child. Some of my favorite things are spending time with my family, music, & sports, especially hockey.
