Jane - Dental Hygienist

Jane

I enjoy getting to know each of my patients and their families. I’ve been with this practice since 2004 and have had the pleasure of knowing many of these people for years. Ours is a wonderful, friendly, supportive office that cares for patients like family.

I have a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene. I scale and clean teeth, and, while working with my patient, teach them about the need for good oral hygiene.

First and foremost, the Lord has blessed me with many talents and I praise and give thanks to him for all. I have many, many hobbies that keep me busy, especially showing in conformation and performance events with my dogs.

My husband and I have two now-married daughters and we look forward to the arrival of our first grandchild. We all love going to Disney and enjoy cruises, too.


Shelley - Office Manager

Shelley

Our patients are, by far, my favorite part of my work. I love getting to know them both through the office and in our community. They are part of my extended family and I, like Dr. La and our staff, really care about their happiness and well-being.

I manage all aspects of the office, to ensure we maintain a professional and comfortable atmosphere for our patients and team members. We all work hard to ensure everything goes smoothly so patients have easy, stress-free visits and leave with smiles.

I’m originally from Pennsylvania and have traveled the world with my husband of more than 30 years while he served in the Navy. We have two grown sons and two dogs. My husband and I enjoy traveling, camping, biking, and time with family and loved ones.


Lisa - Patient Coordinator

I enjoy greeting our patients when they come to our office. It’s great to get to know them and they feel like part of my extended family. Ours is a small practice in a close community: we become friends with our patients, their families, our neighbors, and everyone else!

After welcoming people, I make any necessary updates to their records and help them schedule future visits. I also answer the phones, write out the office bills, work on the schedule, and pull charts for the next day’s appointments.

My husband Steven and I have been married for more than 30 years. We, and our two daughters, traveled throughout the US during his 20 years in the Navy. Our daughters are now grown and one is married.

In our spare time, Steven and I make our own wine. I especially enjoyed making our Breast Cancer Survivor wine, since I am a survivor. Our whole family contributes to this hobby and we have a lot of fun!


Casie - Dental Assistant

Casie

I really like seeing how happy and pleased our patients are after their visits, whether they came in for a cleaning or an advanced procedure. We have an office full of smiling faces and any time someone needs help, someone is there to assist. This means our patients have a great experience, each time!

I set up, organize, and clean our rooms and treatment areas. I also assist Dr. La with a variety of procedures, place orders for supplies, and help our hygienists and office management with tasks as needed.

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my son Aiden and fiancé, Josh. We love adventures and amusement parks, and we’re always on the go! More than anything, though, we love spending time with each other and our families.


Joanna - Dental Assistant

I enjoy getting to know our patients and making them feel comfortable and secure during visits. Dental offices can be stressful places for some people, so we do everything we can to make everyone feel at ease, to reassure them that they’re in caring hands. Our entire team genuinely cares about our patients, their families, and each other. It’s a big, warm family!

As a dental assistant, I prepare rooms, seat patients, and explain what will happen during their visit. Working chairside, I assist Dr. La with the procedure while making sure our patient is comfortable. When finished, I provide homecare instructions and then clean and sanitize the area and equipment.

In my spare time I like to sculpt, paint, and play piano. I’m always keeping my hands busy!
