Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist since graduating from the University of MN in 2003. I love getting to know patients and being able to provide the best care I can for them. I want to do everything I can to make them feel comfortable in the dental setting. I live with my husband and our 2 boys in Annandale. We enjoy living on the lake every season of the year. I especially love summers, hiking, kayaking, agate hunting and going for bike rides. Winters are great when we get to snowmobile or downhill ski.


Dental Assistant
I have been an LDA since 2013. I enjoy interacting with patients and helping to make them feel as comfortable as possible when they visit our office. I have been a lifelong resident of Buffalo and enjoy working so close to home! My husband and I have 2 adult children. In my free time I enjoy cooking, crafting, and spending time with my family.


Dental Assistant
I have been an LDA since 2019. I love transforming smiles- it's a great feeling helping patients fall in love with their smile again! I'm a Fargo, ND native but have new found roots in Maple Lake. My husband and I have 3 daughters and a German Shepherd. We love living on the lake, it feels like we're always on vacation with the water sports and winter activities! You can find us playing outside or working on projects around the house to keep us busy.


Office Manager
I have been in the dental field since 2014. I enjoy welcoming patients into the office and making their time checking in and out as smooth as possible. As someone who has battled dental anxiety for most of my adult life, I understand how some people may feel coming to see us. My husband and I have 3 daughters and we live in the St. Michael-Albertville area. In my free time I enjoy crafting, gardening and traveling.
