Michelle is a USD graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and joined our team in Jan of 2022.  She has been a hygienist for 24 years, and previously worked for Dr. Tom Pillar earlier in her career.  She enjoys getting to know patients of all ages,  helping them to feel at ease during their visit, and providing thorough dental care while having fun along the way.  Helping patients improve the health of their smile is rewarding, and the best part is seeing them excited to come back!  She and her husband have two college kids that don’t keep them too busy anymore, along with two golden retrievers. In her spare time, she likes to do anything outside, watch movies, and hang out with friends and family!
