About Your Team

Brooke , Practice Manager

"Trust me, I'm almost a dentist!"

My Mission:

To inspire others to be the best person they can be inside and outside of the dental office.

Educational Background:

I spent 10 years as a dental assistant before moving into the operations side of practice management. I love all things dentistry, team building, and being in an office that consistently supports personal growth and education. Even though you will see me less on the clinical side now, I still love when I get to jump in and help patients out in the chair! Seeing a patient become confident in their smile is why I joined dentistry in the first place.

Life & Hobbies:

I'm a mom, wife and chaos coordinator on my off time! I have two fantastic children and two dogs who keep me busy, and a husband who spends the majority of his off time helping me do projects he didn't sign up for. We are an outdoorsy family who love to ride quads, camp (glamp) and be out with our group of friends anytime we can! During the summers you'll find my kids and I at the lake enjoying jumping off the dock.

Outside of the dental office, you'll find me on a field, court, or gym wathcing sports with my kiddos. I am a parent of five kids - a blended family- his and hers. four boys and one girl. A lover of animals; two hunting dogs and four horses. If I'm not chasing kids, I'm outside on horseback blazing trails with my husband.
