My main roles in the office are to provide our patients with gum disease treatment, routine cleaning, and placing sealants for children. I have worked as a hygienist since 1991 and have been happily working with our dental team since 2001. I feel very satisfied to know that I am helping to improve our patients' smiles and their health by providing high quality dental care. I am a native of Iowa and have lived in Marion since 1996. When I'm not in the office I enjoy reading, playing cards and darts, and hanging out with my kids.


You and your family can take advantage of a full range of dental services here at Dental Associates of Cedar Rapids.

It is important to brush your teeth at least twice daily to help remove plaque and food particles that get stuck to your teeth. It is recommended that you brush your teeth for two minutes (or longer), though most people rush through this time.
