I enjoy building relationships with my patients and educating them on the importance of their oral health. I also enjoy working with each person to develop practical strategies to maintain their oral health between professional cleanings. Keeping patients comfortable during their visits is my priority. I want everyone to feel at ease and to finish their visit with clean and happy smile!

I received my bachelor’s in dental hygiene from the University of Minnesota in 2021 and joined Glen Oaks Dental in August of the same year. This is a supportive and friendly office, with everyone pulling together to provide the best care for our patients.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring with my dog, especially visiting local parks and hiking around Minnesota. I also like volunteering at nonprofit dental clinics to help the underserved in our community. When I have down time, I can be found with my family or enjoying acrylic painting.




I have been a dental hygienist for 35 years and my favorite part of the job is being able to help people achieve oral; health and teach people new things. Aside from dental hygiene I have been an office manager and a trainer in learning and development. I'm excited to join Glen Oaks Dental because everyone is always happy and helpful, smiles every day!

My home like is spent with my husband of 31 years, and our son and daughter, we enjoy spending time

I like building patient relationships and getting to know each person as we work to help them achieve the best oral health possible. As a hygienist, I perform various duties to help patients achieve and maintain good oral health. These include assisting the doctors by performing initial screenings, taking X-rays, cleaning teeth, and providing oral healthcare instruction. Seeing a clean smile at a recall visit makes me smile!

I obtained my licensed dental hygienist degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, started in the field in 1990, and joined Glen Oaks Dental in 1991. I love the positive attitude and outward energy that everyone brings to this practice. We have lots of laughs and enjoy working together, which makes for a wonderful atmosphere for us and our patients.

My best friend and I have been married for over 30 years. We have two grown children. Both graduated college and are busy in their careers, so we are now officially “empty nesters.” I love all things outdoors: downhill skiing, jet skiing, hiking, and biking especially. We love to travel, play games, and hang out and adventure with our kids, who bring us the greatest joy and happiness.

Licensed Dental Assistant

I have been a patient at Glen Oaks Dental since I was seven years old, so I know our patients are in excellent hands! As an assistant, I spend a lot of my time chairside, assisting the doctors with various procedures. They are talented and gentle dentists, which keeps our patients comfortable and relaxed. Seeing people’s happy smiles when we’re done, and hearing their words of thanks for making the visit a breeze, is the best reward I can imagine!

I graduated from Herzing University in 2010 with a diploma in dental assisting, and started my career in 2011. In 2013 I joined Glen Oaks Dental and found my professional home and family. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and dedicated to keeping our patients healthy and smiling.

I married my husband Travis in 2016 and we have two sons Logan and Max.  I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, vacationing on road trips, gardening, and sewing quilts.

Licensed Dental Assistant

I like helping people. In addition to providing chairside assistance during procedures, I offer patient care and handle sterilization tasks. My focus, and that of everyone at the office, is always on our patients. We care about their safety, health, and comfort and want only the best for them, in addition to a healthy smile!

I attended Herzing University and am a graduate of the Class of 2012. In 2013 I started my career by joining Glen Oaks Dental and immediately knew I was in the right place. Ours is an amazing team, with everyone encouraging one another so we provide patients with the best care.

My life outside of the office is all about family. My husband  Tony and I love to make memories with our daughters, Charlotte and Valerie. I also love to hang out with my family and friends, travel, and camp.



Patient Care Coordinator

I began working in the dental field in 2003 and stayed until 2017 when I left to join my husband in running our retail business. I joined the Glen Oaks Dental team in January of 2024 and quickly remembered how much I love working in the dental field.

Outside of  work you will find me spending time at our store or spending time with my husband and our daughter ( my stepdaughter) . I enjoy running and I am an avid sports fan, particularly football and hockey. Skol Vikings!, Go Chiefs! and Go Wild!



Patient Care Coordinator

My career as a patient coordinator started 16 years ago when my family and I pursued our dream of living on an island in Alaska. It was there that I discovered my passion for assisting  others as part of a dedicated team committed  to delivering top-notch dental care. Now back In Minnesota, I am thrilled to be a part of the Glen Oaks Dental team. I look forward to seeing you in the office. 

Outside of the office I enjoy camping, house projects and cooking.
