Our Team

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.


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.


Dental Hygienist
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Community Health from MSU-Mankato in 2008. I subsequently attended St. Cloud Technical and Community College to obtain my Dental Hygiene degree. I love to share my passion for oral health with my patients and help them achieve their best smile. I live in Becker with my husband, our two daughters, and our lab. We love being outdoors and watching sports. I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, and volleyball.


Dental Assistant
I have been a LDA since 2018 and have been loving my career choice ever since. I have learned over the years that most people don't enjoy coming in to see the dentist, so I enjoy being the familiar face and comfort for my patients. Getting to know you, your family, and your dental needs is my passion. I have been living in Buffalo forever raising my 3 crazy boys along side my husband. We enjoy playing games of any kind, creating art, trying new fun recipes in the kitchen, gardening, and getting out in nature when the Minnesota weather permits.


Dental Assistant
I have been an LDA since 2019. I enjoy getting to know patients, and helping them feel comfortable during their dental visits. I love getting to educate patients on all things dental. My husband and I live in Buffalo with our daughter and our two doodles. In my free time I enjoy baking, spending time outdoors, and being with family.


Patient Coordinator
I graduated from my dental assisting program in Oregon in 2009. After working as an oral surgery assistant for a few years, I left the clinical side of dentistry to begin my journey as a patient care coordinator. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them feel at ease when the come into our office.

Outside of work, my husband and I have two boys who keep us busy, as well as two dogs and three cats. We enjoy doing anything that gets us outside - hiking, swimming, fishing, gardening, riding 4-wheelers, snowmobiling, and more. I also enjoy reading, snowboarding, photography and have been learning how to crochet.
