Amber – Dental Hygienist
She loves cats, all things Disney, and watching Netflix. You’ll have to take our word for it, because Amber doesn’t talk that much about herself. Instead, she concentrates on getting to know her patients, helping them stay healthy, and learning new ways to be a better hygienist. Amber attended Kalamazoo Valley Community College, and she’s been brightening our office since 2016.
Amy – Dental Hygienist
Her favorite color is yellow, but she loves to keep your teeth pearly white. Amy, who was born and still lives in Paw Paw, first shared her bubbly personality with us as a clinical assistant before attending dental hygiene school in 2011 at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Now she loves educating patients almost as much as she loves spending time with her growing family. Amy and her husband welcomed a son, Henry, in June of 2018. Ask Amy how her dog, Penny Sue, is getting along with her new “sibling.”
Anne – Registered Dental Assistant
She’s been with us since 2004, and over the years our patients have learned to appreciate her honesty and experience. But very few know about Anne’s special skill—she can milk a goat! You see, Anne and her husband live on a small farm with horses, chickens, a rooster, and of course, goats. She enjoys gardening, kayaking, movies, and visiting her grandchild in Texas. Anne has been a registered dental assistant since 1980, after graduating from Ferris State University.
Crystal – Certified Dental Hygienist
Being from St. Joseph, she’s a big fan of the beach. And Crystal loves to swim. So, it stands to reason she named her pet fish H20. As for her cat, who goes by Sky, well, your guess is as good as ours. All we know is Crystal started sharing her sunny attitude with us in 2017, and we’re very happy to have her here.
Heather – Front Office
Heather’s favorite place is Lake Michigan. When she smiles and offers her trademark friendly greeting, you’ll realize she also loves being right here in our office. What you may not realize is that Heather earned a degree in Finance at Western Michigan University. No brag, just fact. She enjoys scrapbooking, watching her kids’ sporting events, and Italian food. In 2017, she added “working with a great dental team” to her list of favorite pastimes.
Jamie – Clinical Assistant
She’s a computer gamer from Kalamazoo who felt the “Call of Duty” to work in the dental field in sixth grade, when she started pouring models and studying patient charts. Today Jamie enjoys time with her husband, collects vintage board games, and loves to watch classic and horror movies. Her favorite part of the job is interacting with patients and getting to know them, which she’s been doing here since 2014.
Jen – Dental Hygienist
They say twins have exceptional compassion, which is certainly true of Jen, whose twin is also a hygienist. But it doesn’t stop there. Since 2017, Jen has been very compassionate about her patients. She loves to make you comfortable, perhaps while swapping stories about growing families, University of Michigan sports, or bulldogs. Ask her about Maizey!
Jill A. – Front Office Team
Jill’s dream vacation destination is Hawaii. Her dream job? Working in our front office, where she makes patients feel comfortable and welcome. In her spare time, Jill spends time with her husband, daughter, dog and cat. She’s also a runner who likes to crochet, but not at the same time.
Jill S. – Front Desk
The first smile you see in our office probably belongs to Jill. This Western Michigan University grad is happy to be at our front desk, where she can make patients feel welcome and comfortable. When she’s not at work, Jill enjoys being with her two children, beautifying her yard, and traveling. Her dream vacation destination is Italy, so don’t be surprised if she greets you with a friendly “Ciao!”
Karen – Registered Dental Assistant
Karen loves eating pizza and watching her patients smile after treatment. Not necessarily in that order. Since 1998, when she first started here, she’s gotten a great sense of satisfaction working closely with the doctors. From Paw Paw, Karen is married, with three kids and two stepsons. She likes to travel and hang out with her family no matter what the activity. Ask about her awesome handmade bath bombs!
Kelley – Dental Hygienist
Want to find Kelley? Follow the laughter. She’s been in the dental field for more than a quarter-century, and she still enjoys every single day. Since 2011, Kelley has been a fun part of this office, where she refers to her teammates as “The Fabulous Fifteen.” In her down time, this Ferris State University grad likes to spend time with family, either fishing, camping or going to the movies (comedies, no doubt!).
Nicole – Registered Dental Assistant
You might see her riding a motorcycle, or taking photos of her daughter, or searching for the perfect pasta dish. You’ll most likely see her in our office, where Nicole has been sharing her passion for dental health with patients and coworkers since 2006. She loves discovering something new every time a patient walks through the door.
Randi – Registered Dental Assistant
Since 2014, this self-professed lover of country life has also loved coming to the office, taking care of patients, and being part of our team. Randi has fun at work, especially since it gives her a break from caring for her dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys, guineas, ducks and quail! In the summer months, you can find her camping or gardening. When the weather turns cool, Randi likes to hunt, camp and canoe.
