Very Professional with a Genuine Interest
“In recent months I have experienced major dental problems. Fortunately, I have been cared for by Dr. Brantly and his staff, whom I have found to be very professional with a genuine interest and attention to my personal needs and comfort. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of this dental practice.”

PATIENT CARE COORDINATOR
As the first face you see when you arrive at our office, my goal is to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We want to give our patients the best service possible in and out of the dental chair. My degree is from Calvin College and I have a diverse background with a variety of living and work experiences, but I have always been service and caring for people-driven. I am grateful to be invited to work with Dr. Brantly and with a team that is dedicated to the same mission.
Outside the office, I am a “new mom” of a teen, who came to live with me at the beginning of this year. I enjoy reading, spending quality time with friends and family, the great outdoors, and new adventures.
I graduated from Grand Rapids Community College in 2012 as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I truly feel lucky to work with such an amazing team! Everyone at Petoskey Family Dental Care is passionate about what they do and strive to do thier very best. Dr. Brantly is very caring and conscientious and strives to help his patients to achieve a healthy smile. Although there are many things that I enjoy about being a Dental Hygienist, my favorite is meeting new people and helping them improve their overall health.
Outside the office, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our daughter, son, friends and family. We also love to travel and spend time outdoors at the beach or camping.
I was briefly a dental assistant right out of high school and my passion to help patients drove me to continue my education towards dental hygiene. I graduated with honors from Ferris State University in 2018. Following graduation, I got some major experience working in the Metro- Detroit and Grand Rapids area before returning to my roots in Northern Michigan. I was beyond thankful to join such a welcoming team that strives for ultimate success in patient care. Dr. Brantly and his team work diligently to care for all patients to improve their overall health and well-being. I am proud to say I am a member of that team! My favorite thing about being a hygienist is seeing the transformations in patients from the beginning to the end of treatment. The feeling of overwhelming satisfaction and success is worth the work.
Outside of the office, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I love to play softball, bowl, and try new experiences. And I will be getting married in September 2022.
Bio Coming Soon!
I’m so happy to have joined this great team. Dr. Brantly and the rest of the staff do an amazing job at making sure everyone has a painless and comfortable dental experience. As the sterilization tech, I make sure all the instruments are cleaned and sanitized and each patient is walking into a fully sterilized room.
I was born and raised in Petoskey and live in town with my son, Matt. My hobbies are reading, cooking and bowling.

DENTAL ASSISTANT / OFFICE ADMINISTRATION
I graduated from Idaho State University with a degree in education. While I loved teaching, I’m also passionate about dentistry. I believe if people are educated about their oral health, they can make better decisions about their dental care. A gentle touch and a friendly chairside manner help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during their visit. My goal is for each patient to experience exceptional care; I want to be a part of that process.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dr. Brantly, and our four children. Our children are involved with multiple school and community activities like tennis, skiing, music and theater. We enjoy the connections and relationships that are a benefit of living in a small community.
ACCOUNTING / OFFICE ADMINISTRATION
I graduated from Harding University with a degree in Human Resource Management. I’m usually working behind the scenes keeping the office books, providing IT support, and handling general management duties, but I still try to meet our patients and talk with them. I want them to know we appreciate the trust they place in us. I really enjoy working with Dr. Brantly and all of the team. They care, are supportive, and hardworking. Together, we all strive to provide the best patient care and dental experience for our patients. Each of us on the team is here to help, whatever a patient needs, and that makes ours an exceptional office.
My husband, Lance, is a physics teacher at Petoskey High School. We have four school-aged children, and our family loves outdoor activities: hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, and boating.
At our office, Dr. Brantly and our team honestly care about each of our patients. The person’s needs are what’s important to us, and we work to make sure they have an excellent visit every time. I verify patients’ dental insurance, create and maintain coverage books that help us know how much various policies cover, and am assisting with making our office go paperless. I’m always here to help my team members and our patients, whatever they need.
I’m single, and own 12 birds, who are my pride and joy. I have a type of muscular dystrophy that keeps me in a wheelchair, but I do exercise, and love running video for services at the Petoskey Church of Christ.
