The Team

Dental Assistant

I am new to the Dental Field and was hired at the Chippewa falls location as a Dental Assistant in August of 2021. I am originally from the Whitehall area. In my free time I enjoy traveling and exploring the outdoors. I also enjoy spending time with my family as well as kayaking and practicing my marksmanship.


Dentistry is my passion and gives me the greatest sense of satisfaction by allowing me to put smiles on someone’s face. After practicing dentistry in India, I came to the United States, and trained at one of the premier dental schools in the country, the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.

I have been living in Eau Claire since 2014 and I am excited to join the wonderful team at the Dental Health Centers, where I can perform a variety of dental procedures in patients of all age groups. I am looking forward to working with this amazing group and providing dental care to my patients.


I grew up in Wabasha, Minnesota and attended college at St. Mary’s University.   From there, I attended Dental School at the University of Minnesota, completing my degree in 1994.  After that, I trained at the University of Minnesota in an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program.  In 1998, I relocated to Red Win, Minnesota where I owned my own practice until 2016.   I now work at the Dental Health Centers in the Cadott and Eau Claire offices.  Outside of work, I enjoy boating and spending time with my sons.

Ultimately, I have a passion for helping others and have learned the art of investigating dental conditions, diagnosis, and treatment.  I have many years of experience as a dentist, and hope to continue for many more years.  Making patients smile, makes me smile.

Office Coordinator

I joined Dental Health Centers in 2019 as the Office Coordinator in the Chippewa Falls location. I bring many years of customer service and other office experience to the team. I really enjoy getting to know each patient, and establishing a good relationship as well as the day to day interactions with them. Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my husband, family and friends as well as my 4 dogs and 3 cats.

Office Coordinator

I have been with Dental Health Centers in Cadott since June of 2017 as the Office Coordinator. I have approximately 21years of Dental Experience comprised of roles as a Dental Assistant as well as in the front office. I enjoy working for Dental Health Centers and getting to know each and every one of our patients. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my granddaughter, camping and just being outdoors.

Office Coordinator

I have worked in the front office at the Thorp Dental Health Center since the opening in 2013, and prior to that, with the previous owner for a total of 22 years. I look forward each day to seeing our patients. I am here to help our patients, whether it be with setting up a payment plan that is right each individual, scheduling their appointments, or answering questions they have about their insurance coverage. It has been a joy through the years watching as children come in for their appointments, and now, seeing them bring their own children into the office.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have an amazing husband of thirty years, two awesome grown kids—a son and daughter, and two incredible grandsons. Whether it is helping on the farm, traveling around the state, going to basketball games, or sitting around the kitchen table, every day is a blessing.

Insurance & Billing Manager

I have been with Dental Health Centers since 2010 and I have been in the dental field for over 25 years. I manage patient account, insurance and billing. I have gotten to know many of our patients over the years and enjoy seeing them when they are in for appointments.

Out the office I enjoy time with my husband and family.

Vice President

I joined the Dental Health Center team in 2016, and have thoroughly enjoyed working with the wonderful doctors and staff in all five of our offices.  While my background is in education, I’ve enjoyed learning about the many aspects of the dental field, and seeing some of the amazing transformations that our patients have achieved. When I’m out of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, as well as traveling, cooking, and volunteering in our community.

Dental Assistant

I graduated from Chippewa Valley Technical College in 2012 as a dental assistant and have been assisting ever since. I joined Dental Health Centers in Cadott in September of 2017, and could not have been more excited. I enjoy being part of a small town community helping with patient care. As an assistant, I love getting to know out patients and help make them feel comfortable at every appointment. I like being able to help the doctor maintain and achieve beautiful smiles. Outside of work, in our free time, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our family, friends and our yellow lab, Lilly. Together we spend time snowmobiling, four wheeling, pontooning, and well as other outdoor activities.
