Meet Our Team

Amy – Dental Hygienist

Amy has been an amazing dental hygienist for us, bringing a passion for dentistry that we really love. She’ll always do what she can to give every single patient the kind of quality dentistry that they deserve. She really is in this business to change lives.

Amy earned her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene in 2014 from Loma Linda University, and she is also certified in local anesthesia.

At home, she and her husband live with a highly spoiled cat. They love hiking, camping, and basically anything outdoors. Above everything else, Amy’s favorite activity is training and showing paint horses.

Elise – Business Assistant

Elise is currently serving as our business assistant. She does an amazing job, not only with our finances but also in working with each patient to help them get the quality care they deserve. We love the real feeling of community and teamwork that she brings to our office.

Elise graduated from Grand Valley State University with a BFA and now lives in Ferndale with her husband.

Outside of work, there are two things Elise loves to spend her time on: food and the great outdoors—often both at the same time. Together with her husband, she enjoys cooking, camping, hiking, and trying new foods. She also likes to relax with a little bit of sewing.

Joanne – Business Assistant

We’re excited to have Joanne as one of our business assistants. She has twenty years of experience in the dental industry, which have been invaluable to our office. Eighteen of those years have been specifically in billing and dental claims, so she’s definitely the one to ask when it comes to the financial end of things.

Joanne also brings a level of comfortable professionalism to our team and our community. She loves the family atmosphere in our office and only improves it by trying to make everyone feel at home.

Joanne is married with three awesome kids, and she loves hanging out with them. She especially enjoys taking on the threat of the zombie apocalypse with them. In fact, she is a gamer through and through, whose zombie-fighting skills are legendary.

Katie – Dental Hygienist

Katie is one of our registered dental hygienists, and she is all about the Team, The Team, The Team. With her cheerful attitude and professional efficiency, our office runs smoothly.

One of Katie’s major focuses is on patient education. She will always go the extra mile to make sure each patient is informed about their treatments and about optimum methods for daily care. Katie received her Associates in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Delta College in 2015.

Katie originally hails from Saginaw but now lives in Berkley. She loves spending time with her boyfriend, Nick, their labradoodle, Nelly, as well as seeing friends and family. In her spare time, she enjoys shopping, exploring her new town, exercising, and keeping up with her favorite sports teams. Go Blue!
