Registered Dental Hygienist
I’ve worked with Dr. Smith since 1993 and am thrilled to have helped four generations of families with their oral health. I’ve been lucky to have formed many special bonds and friendships through our practice and am honored by each. As a team, we provide the highest quality dental care and keep our patients smiling!
Working closely with patients, I review their overall and oral health, take X-rays, and perform periodontal charting. Then I clean my patient’s teeth, provide periodontal maintenance, and administer fluoride treatments. My most important responsibility is to educate each patient about why it’s important to care about their dental health and teach them how to keep it in great shape!
My husband Mark and I live in Saginaw Township with our two daughters, Emily and Hannah. We also have two Cocker Spaniels, Ellie and Sadie, and two cats, Jake and Grace. Our family loves time together, especially camping, bicycling, and kayaking. I enjoy being a troop leader for two Saginaw Township Girl Scout troops, too!

I am glad to be part of an amazing team, where we help people improve their oral health and achieve wonderful smiles. Dr. Smith is a truly gentle, patient dentist and each of my coworkers is just as committed to providing painless, stress-free visits. I’ve been here since 2010 and treasure all the friendships I’ve made.
I work one-to-one with patients, providing through, gentle cleanings and offering other preventive care. A lot of my time is spent teaching people about their unique oral health concerns. We talk about the best way to keep their mouth clean and healthy, along with developing positive habits and making good nutrition decisions.
I grew up in the small town of Merrill, MI and have lived in Midland for the last ten years. I married my high school sweetheart and we have two crazy young kids. We also have a house full of furry friends who are part of our family. We enjoy camping and boating and my husband and I have season tickets to Michigan Football. Go Blue!
Registered Dental Assistant
We serve the most wonderful community and I’m glad to be part of their healthcare team! It’s a great feeling to help people develop the beautiful, health-filled smile of their dreams and to see how happy they become. I joined Dr. Smith and our team in 2008 and love working with people who feel like part of my family. We’re dedicated to providing the best care possible!
I work in our clinic, seating patients, preparing them to see Dr. Smith, and explaining what we’ll be doing. Working chairside, I act as a second pair of hands for Dr. Smith during the procedure. At the same time, I talk with our patient about what we’re doing and check that they’re comfortable. When we’re finished, I offer home care instructions and check that the person is happy with everything we’ve done.
Outside of work, my priority is time with friends and family. I’m married and have a son and a daughter, along with the world’s cutest little Chihuahua, Oliver. I enjoy golfing and camping, making crafts, and I love tropical vacations!
Receptionist and Scheduling Coordinator
Working at the front desk, I welcome and check in patients, answer questions about treatment and scheduling, and handle the phones. I also verify insurance benefits, process payments, and take care of a variety of tasks. I’m busy, but never too busy to catch up on a patient’s latest news!
I’ve worked with my brother-in-law Dr. Smith since 2010. Coming to the office each day feels like working with family, partly because it is, and partly because we treat our patients and each other with such compassion and respect that it feels like they’re family.
I handle all our patients’ billing and insurance needs, helping them receive all the benefits to which they’re entitled. It’s very rewarding to work with such a variety of people and creating for them a dental experience that is comfortable and positive.
I am married to Brian and I have two kids, Heidi and Megan. We also have two dogs that demand a lot of attention. I stay active at church and really enjoy getting together with family. I love my granddaughter Maya; having grandchildren is just as good as all grandparents say it is!
Helping people achieve great smiles is truly the best part of my job. I love getting to know our patients on a personal level, whether we’re talking about the latest addition to their family, travel plans, or success at school or work. Each person is unique and adds to the excitement of each day.
I make sure our patients are comfortable and relaxed during their visits. I explain what Dr. Smith will be doing and then assist him during the procedure. I look forward to getting to know all our patients.
