Hygienist Team

You’ll come to know your dental hygienist well during your regular checkups with us. Your hygienist will clean your teeth, provide instruction, answer questions about routine dental care, and make note of any issues of concern for the dentist to investigate. Our hygienists work as a team with our dentists and dental assistants to provide a friendly, professional and caring environment.

Michelle is detail-oriented and believes in giving 110 percent, whether she’s in the office caring for long-time patients or out in the community educating children or care providers about dental hygiene. She enjoys the camaraderie she has with her coworkers, the way they anticipate each other’s needs and chip in to help each other for the convenience of patients. After 30 years at Pike Creek Dental, she now cares for the children of patients who were children themselves when she began her career here.

“A big reason patients say they keep coming back to Pike Creek Dental is the stability of the staff. They also comment that they know they’re getting quality work. It’s also the little things, like the fact that we will put moisturizer on their lips, or get them a pillow and a blanket to make them more comfortable.”

There’s nothing Linda likes better than working with a child on his or her very first dental appointment. She has a reassuring, nurturing way with kids, so we match many of our young patients with her. She also works with those children who have special needs. Her calm, understanding way makes even the most nervous or anxious patient—child or adult—feel comfortable and at ease. No matter who her patient is, she demonstrates a caring manner and a knack for explaining hygiene and procedures.

“I’ve been a dental hygienist for more than 25 years, but I still love learning. Here at Pike Creek Dental, we are encouraged to continue our education and to become more knowledgeable about the latest developments in technology and oral health.”

Sue joined Pike Creek Dental right after receiving her dental hygiene degree in 1999, and she’s been here ever since. She loves that she’s been seeing some of the same patients since the beginning. Nothing gives her more satisfaction than ensuring that they are comfortable and well cared for. Just like the office environment, Sue is warm, friendly and professional.

“Our patients appreciate the professional yet casual attitude here. We even allow parents to bring their children with them, and the kids play quietly while they have their appointment.”

Audrey's bright, infectious personality puts her patients at ease, providing an atmosphere that is both calming and relaxing. She prides herself on putting the patients needs first and she says that is exactly what attracted her to Pike Creek Dental.

"It is important to me to be in an office where the doctors and staff work together to give out patients the best experience possible. Not only do we explain everything for the patients to understand, but we have the technology to illustrate and clarify any uncertainties they may have".

She is able to build good relationships with her patients and enjoys educating them to become active partners in their dental care.

Growing up in the area and being a St. Marks alumni, Theresa was thrilled to be able to get a job where she could serve the community that she grew up in. Theresa brings a youthful energy and dynamic into the office and she strives to make a difference in the lives of all the patients she has the ability to work with. Theresa is known for her infectious laugh and the ability to make her patients actually like coming to the dentist!

“Being a hygienist is such a privilege to me. I think a person’s smile is one of the strongest assets they can offer. I love making my patients feel confident about their smile and their overall oral health. I also really enjoy getting to know each and every one of my patients. Here at Pike Creek, we treat everyone like family and that to me is the most unique thing about working here. I come from a very close knit family so working here has been a perfect fit for me!”
