Meet the Team

Each member of my team is people-oriented, caring, and skilled. They are a joy to be around, smiling and laughing a lot, which puts our patients at ease and reassures each that they are in a safe, welcoming, and friendly dental office. I could not be more proud of my team; they are professionals who combine their passion for healthy smiles with patient-centered care.

Patient Care Coordinator


Denise has been with our Bear Tooth Dental team since December 2018. She started off as a Dental Assistant and has moved up front as a care coordinator. Denise enjoys connecting with patients and helping them with their goals and treatment needs. 

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, whether it is indoors or outdoors.

Dental Assistants


When she was 17, Nikki saw a family member go through a traumatic experience at a dental office. Wanting others not to go through something similar, she chose to become an assistant. For the last 12 years, she has enjoyed giving gentle yet exceptional care. She enjoys the one-on-one experience with the patient, allowing her to understand what the patient wants so that she can personalize care just for them.

In her off time, Nikki chases four kids, one grandchild, two German Shepherds, and any fish she can set her hook in.


Dental Hygienists


Michelle graduated from dental hygiene school in 1995 and has been loving what she does ever since. With her friendly personality, Michelle takes a warm, gentle approach to her patients' dental care. She strives to help patients with their dental needs while building relationships at the same time.

Michelle is passionate about tennis, gardening, travel and cooking. She also enjoys spending time with her husband, Kip, and their two fur babies, Rusty and Rosey.
