Dentistry is a big passion of hers and works alongside her clients to help achieve not only a healthy, confident smile, but sustainable overall health. She enjoys getting to know her clients and strives to keep them as comfortable as possible during their dental visit.

    She grew up in Farmington Hills, where she resides with her boyfriend and two kitties. From camping and hiking to beer gardens and live music, you can expect to find her getting into something during her time away from the office. She’s always looking for the next adventure.

  • Meggie
    Dental Hygienist

    Meggie most recently joined our office in April 2023. She has always had a passion for dentistry and started in the field as a dental assistant back in 2015. Working as an assistant helped her gain dental experience as she took classes at OCC and eventually transferred to University of Michigan where she obtained her Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene in May of 2021. During her time at school, she was very involved in the community and even had the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Guatemala to provide dental care for those in need. It was there that she felt like she could make a difference and help others feel confident with their smiles.

    Meggie wants to make everyone in her chair feel better about their oral health. Whether you love to get your teeth cleaned or have had bad dental experiences in the past, making you comfortable is her top priority!

    Meggie lives in downtown Milford with her boyfriend and two cats. When she is not in the office she’s usually hanging out with friends, trying new workout classes or strolling the aisles of Home Goods. Traveling is also very important to her so if you ask, she is probably planning her next vacation!

  • Brenda
    Patient Coordinator

    My name is Brenda, I like long walks on the beach at sunset, yellow roses and would secretly like to become a contestant on the BacheloretteSenior edition. Just kidding! 😊 

    But I do like watching the shows! More seriously, my friends would say I am easy going.  I try to stay positive, and I love people. 

    I have been in the dental field for almost 30 years here at this office. I have had the pleasure of working the front desk where I can enjoy interacting with the patients. 

    I can honestly say, I love my job. I have enjoyed seeing 3-year-old patients come in and now bring in their own 3-year old’s. Patients have become like family to me. 

    I have a strong faith in God and love spending time with friends and family. I love fishing and gardening. When I retire, I would love to chase sunrise and sunsets.  Something about them is peaceful and tranquil.

  • Stephanie T.
    Patient Coordinator

    Stephanie joined our team working at the front desk in 2022, bringing 5 years of dental experience with her. She grew up with a strong passion for wanting to help others and once she started working in the dental field, she knew it was the perfect match. Whether it’s assisting you with your dental insurance or greeting you with a big smile, Stephanie will be there to give you a helping hand just like she would for her own family. One of the things she has loved most about dentistry is helping patients feel educated about their insurance policies so that they understand them and feel comfortable.

    Stephanie lives in the Northville area with her husband and two fun kitties, where they plan to eventually raise a future family. She is happiest when spending time with children and animals, staying active, and enjoying quality time with family and friends.

  • Stephanie S.
    Dental Assistant

    Hi! My name is Stephanie. I'm a wife and mother of two boys and one girl.

    I always knew since high school I wanted to be part of a healthcare or dental team in a small office.I took nursing my junior and senior years. During high school I also worked doing housekeepingfor a medical building and once I graduated, I decided to continue working. I've taken college classes at Macomb and Baker on and off over the years but never decided on a career.

    I've also been blessed to be a stay-at-home mom once I started a family in 2015. I have tried different career directions. After all this, my passion to help others has now led me to make a completely new career change in dental. I enjoy being able to learn something new while helping others with their dental health needs.

    It's my pleasure to handle every patient's needs as if they were my own family member. I look forward to learning and growing with an amazing team of professionals and our patients!

  • ​ Jessica
    Patient Coordinator

    Hello, I’m Jessica and I joined the team at the end of Sept in 2023. I graduated at Baker College with a Bachelor in Human Services. I have always had a passion in helping others and putting a smile on someone’s face. I took a career change from working with kids who have special needs to joining the dental field. I love the team; everyone is so welcoming and always has a smile on their face. I got married in 2020. I have an older brother and a twin sister who I’m very close with. On my down time, I enjoy reading, checking out new coffee shops, and enjoying the outside whether it is camping, riding four wheelers, or walking in down town areas. I enjoy being with my family and friends.
