We have two part-time hygienists, Lynne and Kelly.
Lynne graduated from Wayne County Community College in 1990. Prior to becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist, Lynne spent four years as a Dental and Surgical Assistant (after receiving a Dental Assistant Certificate). With continuing education, she has earned a license to administer local anesthetic. Her goal is to provide excellent dental care to all patients while making them feel welcome and comfortable.
In her spare time Lynne enjoys playing in the bell choir at her church, keeping active with zumba and weekend getaways with her husband.
Kelly is the newest member of our team, having just joined us in the summer of 2018. She lives in Gregory with her husband Justin, two boys Oscar and Theodore, their dog Wylie, and a little one on the way (gender yet to be revealed!). She earned her BS in hygiene from U of M Dental School and has worked as a hygienist for 6 years.
Kelly previously worked in Ann Arbor and she is excited about working closer to home and meeting people in her community. Kelly considers being an excellent hygienist her "little gift to the world". She is focused on patient education and especially enjoys when she can help motivate people to take care of their oral health.
When not at work, Kelly enjoys playing golf with her kids and spending time with extended family.
Kaitlyn joined our practice in the summer of 2016. She graduated from Ross Medical Center with a certificate in Dental Assisting. She strives to provide excellent care and make her patients feel comfortable. As the youngest member of our team, Kaitlyn brings a lot of laughter and energy to our office.
Kaitlyn enjoys spending time with her daughter, doing crafts, kayaking and lots of family get togethers! In addition to all that, she is very busy planning her wedding to her sweetheart Joey.
