Front Desk & Receptionist
Away from the practice, Emily loves to live adventurously. She’s really into the arts – she was a theatre major – and loves to be active in our community by volunteering and helping in any way she can. When it’s time to relax, Emily likes to settle in with her cat Minnie. Someday, Emily hopes to become a hygienist … and well … she’s in the right place to go after her dream!
Heather is married and has 2 children, and when she’s not at the practice, she likes to stay active, have a positive attitude, and spend time with her family and their pets, a cat and a dog. A Calhoun County native, she’s lived in Battle Creek since 1999. Heather’s dream is to travel the world.
When not at the practice, Debbie likes to contribute to several organizations as volunteer and a fund raiser. She also likes to attend live theatre with her husband Tim – that is, when she’s not in the actual production singing, acting, directing, or working in the background on costumes. With Tim, she has a menagerie of cats and dogs, all helping her achieve her goal of being active. It’s Debbie’s dream to travel more.
Born and raised right here in Battle Creek, she is married to Isac and working on her dream – to raise healthy and successful children who will make a difference in the world. Three cats (Camil, Chica, and Frankie) and one pup (Jax) round out her family. Sarah volunteers, supports our city shelters, and makes sure she shops at local businesses. She never thought she’d work in the dental field, but said, “Here I am rocking it out and loving it!” When not at the practice, Sarah is a dance instructor/choreographer and her favorite style is Hip-Hop. She’s also had cosmetic dentistry – and if you’re considering cosmetic treatment, she welcomes your questions!
Registered Dental Hygienists
Kylee and her husband Patrick just bought their first home in Battle Creek, where she’s lived since her senior year of high school. They have two Yorkies – Taz (13 years) and Delbert (2). Kylee loves to volunteer with her church and sing on the Praise Team on Sundays. In her spare time, she seeks the company of friends and family and cares for her many houseplants.
Kristal and her husband Larry have 6 kids: Amy, Scott, Kylie, Larry III, Sam, and Sarah … plus 4 pets – Zack, Zoe, Shep, & Zinc. To say she has a busy household, well, it’s an understatement! When not spending time with her family, Kristal loves to travel and shop.
When Shanelle’s not in the practice, she loves to travel, shop, and spend time with family and friends … and of course, her dog Tyson is a great love. She also supports our community by helping to feed the homeless in Battle Creek and Kalamazoo. Shanelle has lived here her whole life and she’s thrilled to be able to share her knowledge and skill with her neighbors, helping you to smile more!
