Meet the team
We recognize that all our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I enjoy getting to know my patients and learning about their lives. It’s a joy to deliver gentle, thorough dental hygiene care that improves my friends’ oral health and smiles. I’m attentive to each person’s concerns and work hard to help them take control of their dental health. While I clean my patients’ teeth, I talk with them about their mouth. Together, we identify home-care processes that work for their needs and lifestyle.
I am proud to be part of such a wonderful dental practice as Yellow Springs Dental. I was raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, and earned a BA of science in dental hygiene with a minor in human health sciences and education instruction. There, I met my husband who eventually led me to Maryland.
We have two amazing boys. I feel privileged to be part of this fantastic team because I know that we provide the best dentistry available. This team and the patients make Yellow Springs Dental a home away from home.
I enjoy building relationships with patients and their families. It’s a real blessing to improve a person’s smile and their self-confidence, and I love being part of that process. I enjoy helping others and am attentive to our patients who are fearful or in pain. I talk with patients about what’s going to happen during their procedure, prepare them, and make sure they’re comfortable and relaxed. Then I provide chairside assistance to our doctors and patients.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like attending my church, where I sing in the choir and am an assistant Sunday school teacher and assistant treasurer.
I love working with people, and to be able participate in helping them love their smile and keep healthy life long teeth is very rewarding. Relationships that are built through caring and support are important to me, and I have really enjoyed participating in this building process since I came to this practice in February 2018.
I am a Maryland native but have lived in West Virginia, Texas, and Colorado. At home, I enjoy cooking, reading, and shopping, of course. I’m an avid animal advocate (wolves especially) and have volunteered at several sanctuaries while living in Colorado. It’s good to be back home and to work with such excellent people.
I love what I do. Dental health is a big part of people’s overall health and well-being. It’s important to me to help people, in whatever way I can, to reach optimal oral health. I assist our patients with their paperwork and scheduling visits. I review financials with patients, and find the terms that work with their budget. I also help patients get the most from their insurance and handle the paperwork so they don’t need to worry about it.
My wonderful husband Joe and I have been married since 1982. We have a son and two daughters. Each has married and blessed Joe and me with grandchildren who are the light of our lives. My animals are a huge part of my life: chickens, a rabbit, a cat, a dog, and two birds. My passion is the youth of our community. I enjoy working with the youth program through my home church.
I joined Dr. Rogers and Dr. John’s team in August 2017. I love working with the dedicated professionals at Yellow Springs Dental to ensure that our patients receive excellent care and have a positive experience.
I grew up in Myersville and moved to Frederick in 2010 when I purchased my first home. My family lives close by and we enjoy spending time together at our family bay house. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking with friends, trying new recipes, and water sports.
