Anita

Front Desk

For the past 20 years, I’ve worked at our front desk, where I greet patients with a smile, help to schedule their appointments, and communicate with insurance companies on our patients’ behalf. I love getting to know our patients and developing lasting friendships with them while they receive treatment. This practice is a positive, upbeat, and educational place for people of all ages to come and receive quality dental care. In my spare time I enjoy golfing with my husband of 30 years. I also love being around our two beautiful granddaughters, Jordyn and Kamryn.

Karen

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love making people feel good about themselves and their smiles by providing high-quality hygiene care. I also enjoy seeing how over time, our patients come to realize the value of their smile and will do anything to keep it healthy and beautiful. Dentistry truly can change your life, and as a dental hygienist, I am proud to know that I am able to help our patients achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted! I currently live in Coventry, near Portage Lakes, with my husband and our 15-month-old son named Jackson. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, camping, and gardening.

Dental Assistant

My duties as a dental assistant include making sure each room is properly set up for each procedure, seating patients, assisting Dr. Turner, taking X-rays and impressions, and making sure each room is stocked full of all the supplies needed for each day. I began working in the dental field in 2010 after graduating from Anthem College in Kansas City, MO. Since joining this office, I’ve realized how lucky I am to work in a field I truly love. I enjoy getting to meet all of the wonderful people who come into the office and learning about each and every one, forming great relationships! Outside of the office I am happily married with two small boys, ages four and 16 months, whom I spend every second not working with. As you can imagine, life with two small boys keeps me busy! But it is always full of so much adventure, laughter, love, pure happiness, and a constant reminder of how truly blessed I am.

Melissa

Dental Hygienist

I am responsible for providing dental cleanings and educating patients on the importance of proper oral hygiene, not only for the sake of their teeth and gums, but for their whole body! Being a hygienist gives me so many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of those around me; when a patient improves their health because of what they learned from me, I know I’ve done my job well. I really appreciate that Dr. Turner is genuinely concerned for our patients’ oral health. He does a great job with explaining things to our patients and making them feel comfortable. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy gardening, cooking, shopping, and spending time with my husband, family, and friends.
