The Team

Dental Hygienist

I’ve been a Dental Hygienist since 2010 and have been with the Thorp office since our initial startup in 2013. I love working in Thorp, and I love our team.  Being a native of the area, I feel personally responsible that our patients receive the best quality care and treatment.  Our team truly values “word of mouth” referrals.  I really enjoy getting to know each patient and taking care of them based on their individual dental needs.  When I am not at the office, I love being outdoors—camping, racing, snowmobiling, and biking with my husband, our kids and out dog, Jack.

There is no better feeling than helping someone. It is so rewarding to see the effects of the care and education we provide; there can be such a difference in a patient’s health and happiness, and those improvements are directly related to the treatment we have given.

As a native of Eau Claire, I attended Eau Claire Memorial high school and the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire where I graduated with a chemistry/biology double major. I then moved to Milwaukee, where I attended dental school at Marquette University.

I feel it is important to keep up with technologies and different techniques so I can customize each patient’s care. To maintain my knowledge of the best treatments available, it is essential to continue my education in all aspects of general dentistry, orthodontics, sedation, endodontics, and oral surgery. I am also involved in numerous professional organizations, including the American Dental Association, the Wisconsin Dental Association, and the American Association of Endodontists. These provide me with many opportunities to continue my education and active within my profession.

I have been practicing for over 40 years and feel that my patients are my family. Our office is dedicated to quality, compassionate and gentle care. Though we have the latest technology, it is really our friendly staff and doctors and shared sense of mission that makes the difference. I attended Marquette Dental School and graduated in 1979. Beyond general dentistry, my education includes orthodontics, laser dentistry, TMJ disorders, sedation dentistry, sleep apnea solutions, and much more. To be the best doctor I can be for my patients, I strive to stay up to date with the latest technologies and best practices.
