Hi, I’m Stacie! I graduated from Dental Assisting school in February of 2012, and moved to Florida shortly after. I gained years of experience in the dental field, then moved back to Michigan. I started my career at Jenison Family Dentistry in October 2015 as a dental assistant, and in August 2016 I was promoted to Office Manager. I truly treasure the relationships I have with our patients, and I look forward to the opportunity to make more with new patients. In my spare time I enjoy exploring the world, trying new restaurants and playing with my cats.
Hi, I’m Paige. I started at Jenison Family Dentistry in 2016 as a Dental Assistant. 2016 was a big year for me as I also married my high school sweetheart! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, and I love being outdoors, especially in the summer when I can hang out at the cottage by the lake enjoying the warm sunshine.
Hello, my name is Bekah! I started working at Jenison Family Dentistry in September 2016 when I moved to the area to marry my wonderful husband. In my free time, I love to read, cook, bake, bike, run, play soccer, and go to the beach. I am so excited to have this opportunity to work at such a great practice with a wonderful team. I can’t wait to get to know you when you visit us at Jenison Family Dentistry.
While I never like to go to the dentist, this staff makes you feel welcome & takes the best of care with you. I feel valued & have only good to say from the front desk to the dental staff. Thank you for helping this to be a better experience for me.–Bonnie P.
No issues or concerns. This is based on my first 2 visits. My first visit was a consultation and my 2nd was a root canal. Both visits the smiles and friendliness from the minute I walked in the door made me feel at ease. The staff seemed to truly care about my needs, and when I had the root canal I never felt any pain and was put at total ease with the use of "laughing gas" and gentleness of the doctor. I especially like that both the doctor and assistant sang along to the radio and even 'jammed it out a little too". I have already referred a family member and look forward to getting my husband in to see you as soon as we catch on the work I am getting done. Thank you for making this nervous patient and happy and returning one.–Brenda B.

Very Professional and helpful!! Had a cleaning done and appreciated the hygienist..very thoughtful and timely.
It was a pleasure meeting the "new" Dr. as well..very upbeat and professional.
I was checking out at the end and the receptionist did her best to accommodate me by going online to Delta and checking on my benefits. Thankyou to all for a pleasant experience.
I have personally worked in the dental field myself for years so I automatically have certain expectations and they were definitely met!–Nanc V.
