Meet Our Team

Jenison Pediatric Dentist

Patient Care Coordinator, Financial Specialist

I help with multiple things in the front office including insurance claims, billing, scheduling, and reviewing treatment plans. It has been great to watch patients and families grow. It is very rewarding to be able to work closely with families in all aspects of insurance and finances, as it can be tricky to navigate on your own. Our staff really is one big family, always working together to give our patients the best experience possible!

My fiancé and I have a very loving, energetic Golden Retriever named Chance. We often spend our summer weekends up north with family and friends. I enjoy traveling, sports, and all things outdoors.

My favorite animal is my Golden, Chance and my favorite food is pizza!

Patient Care Coordinator, New Patient Specialist

I help parents get their kids set up for the new patient appointments, making sure we have all the information necessary to make that first appointment go smoothly. I also greet parents and kids as they walk in the door and make sure all information is current. I love seeing kids excited for their appointment and helping parents feel comfortable and relaxed with the care we provide!

I love summer and can be found at the beach, camping, or doing as many things as possible while the good weather lasts. Most of my time is spent with my siblings, friends and niece and nephew.

My favorite animal is a giraffe and my favorite food is pizza!

Patient Care Coordinator, Treatment Specialist

I assist families in scheduling appointments whether it is for treatment, existing patients, or new patient visits. I also review treatment plans and help answer any questions that may come up. I help navigate dental benefit plans, check patients out from their appointments and translate in Spanish as needed. Our office has one main goal – to treat the patient’s needs, and to me, that is my favorite part! At all times, we strive to keep the child safe and comfortable with the parents’ consideration, but also keep the child’s care in mind. 

My husband and I have two beautiful children, Ian & Marilu. We love road trips, traveling, hiking and enjoy exploring new adventures. I am fluent in Spanish and English! 

My favorite animal is a Giraffe and my favorite color is red! I also enjoy Chinese Food! 

Registered Dental Assistant

I have always loved working with kids and had a passion for teeth. Working in a pediatric dental office allows me to have both of these things.! I love bonding with the kids and showing them how fun the dentist can be! As a Registered Dental Assistant for 5 years, I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful children. I take pride in helping to provide them with safe visits to the dentist and sending them away with bright, clean smiles to show all their friends!

My husband and I welcomed a baby boy, Lincoln, this Fall and have a fur baby named Duke! I cannot wait to show him how fun the dental world is and have my own little buddy to share my love of dogs and superheroes with.

My favorite animal is a dog and my favorite color is forest green!

Registered Dental Assistant

I’ve been a pediatric dental assistant for 7 years and recently earned my license in the state of Michigan. I’ve always been told, it must take a certain kind of person to do this job. I’m very proud to say I think I fit that mold perfectly!

I love nothing more than working with children every day. It’s my job to make them feel comfortable and at ease in a sometimes unnerving situation. My goal is to bring smiles and laughter to every dental visit, and to help our lovely dentists of course!

I’m a born and raised Buckeye, however, I’ve lived here in Michigan for eight years with my husband, Joel. We have two kiddos, Jack (2) and Olivia (10 months) and two dogs, Ollie and Masuka. I enjoy spending my free time going on adventures with my family, doing crafty projects, and watching too much TV (Friends is my favorite!) I’m excited to share more fun facts about me and learn so many more about you at your next visit with us!

My favorite animal is a dog and my favorite color is orange!

Registered Dental Assistant

I’ve been a Dental Assistant for 6 years and I enjoy learning so much about dentistry. I am bilingual – fluent in Spanish – and I love helping out when there is a langue barrier.  I could not imagine anything scarier that having a procedure done and not understanding what is going on.  I recently got my RDA license and I love being more helpful to the office. I am able to place fillings and do sealants among other tasks, and feel I work well with kids. The job comes easy to me – I enjoy making kids feel happy and safe, which makes their dental visit easy and fun for them. It brings me great joy to see how they overcome their fears and walk out of our office smiling!

My family is quite large – my husband and I have 8 kids between us, one grand baby and one more on the way!  We enjoy all outdoor sports, but our favorites are football and soccer.  We try to do as much as we can outdoors, from going to see our kids’ games or going to see professionals play. We are busy all the time! Having a big family and staying close means a lot to us as a family.  We do a cookout together nearly every weekend with all our aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins!

My favorite colors are pink and purple and my favorite animals are puppies!

Registered Dental Assistant

I always loved going to the dentist as a kid at my pediatric dentist. I want to show kids that the dentist is a great place and hope that our patients can acquire the same love that I had when I was younger. I love teaching kids and parents the importance of keeping their teeth nice and clean, and also helping them get healthy and staying healthy. Kids bring a certain joy into the office and they make the job more fun along with the amazing staff here at Grand River. 

I was born and raised in Hudsonville and have two brothers and two sisters, me being the youngest. I have three nephews. In my free time I love to be with friends, trying out new restaurants and I also love camping and being up North. My favorite season is either Summer or Fall, but in the Winter I love to snowboard with my friends. Somewhere that I would love to visit is Austria, where my favorite movie “The Sound of Music” was based.

I love going horseback riding when I get the chance, and my favorite food is grilled chicken!

Registered Dental Hygienist

I want to make sure your child loves coming to the dentist! Making little ones feel comfortable and understanding everything that’s happening is my number one goal. You might even hear me singing throughout the office as Disney songs are my favorite. I have been a dental hygienist for 17 years and love cleaning little one’s teeth. My favorite part of pediatric dentistry is having a child come to a dental appointment nervous and scared, and leave feeling happy and proud!

My husband Andy and I have two daughters, Sidney and Kenleigh, and two little dogs. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, do yoga, and hike.

My favorite animal is my dog, Birdie, and my favorite color is Lavender!

Registered Dental Hygienist

I always thought I would enjoy working in pediatrics after graduating from hygiene school and the opportunity never presented itself until now! After having children of my own, I knew it was my calling. It is important to me that your children feel comfortable during their dental cleaning, and I want you to feel they are being treated as if I would my own children.

I have been married to my husband, Billy, for 5 years and we have three amazing children (Quinn, Thea and Remy) with number four on the way- due in May 2022. We have a dog named Riley and five chickens.

Before having children, we loved traveling and hope to instill that in them some day. I enjoy cooking, baking and gardening. I can’t wait to meet you and your family!

My favorite animal is a dog and my favorite color is pink!

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a Dental Hygienist for over 6 years now and have always loved working with kids. I enjoy teaching kids how to properly clean their teeth and educating them on what foods to choose in order to keep their smile healthy. My goal is to make sure they are not afraid during their visit and to have them enjoy coming to the dentist!

My husband Tristan and I have two daughters, Lylah and Norah. In my free time I enjoy helping my daughters learn and explore new things. Dance parties are an everyday occurrence in our house. I also enjoy reading a good book when I have some down time.

My favorite animals are goats and my favorite food is pizza!
