Bio coming soon…

Melissa D., Administration Manager/Treatment Coordinator

Melissa is our treatment/financial/insurance coordinator. She is also our administration manager! She studied dental assisting and graduated from Kirkwood in 1988.

“I love to spend time with my husband, son, and dogs. We love sports and really enjoy watching our Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Indians, and our soccer teams. I enjoy being organized in all aspects of life.

One thing that is very important to me is always to feel complete. A little fun fact about myself is I have a passion for jewelry and love to collect beautiful pieces!”

I enjoy working with the doctors and staff at The Dental Center. Every day I challenge myself to make sure the patients are taken care of when it comes to dealing with their insurance, that they understand their treatment plans and payment options. I enjoy talking to patients not only on a business level but also on a personal one.”

Enjoy every moment.

Nadia, Office Manager

Even as a small child, I knew I would either be a teacher or work in a health field some day. I believe I’ve found the best of both worlds with dental hygiene! I truly enjoy every opportunity I am given to educate my patients about oral health. I feel fortunate to be here at The Dental Center where I can spend so much one-on-one time with my patients. It really gives me the chance to get to know every person individually and help them achieve the best oral-health possible.

I graduated with a degree in Dental Hygiene from Kirkwood in 2015 and with a degree in Health and Human Physiology from The University of Iowa in 2016. My studies have led me to have a strong interest in the association between oral and overall health. I love when I am able to help our patients see and appreciate the connections between the two!

In my spare time, I enjoy cheering my kids on at their sporting events, traveling, and simply spending time with family.

Justin, Facilities Manager

Anna, Scheduling Coordinator

While many of you have been familiar with seeing Anna at the front desk over the years, she has recently transitioned to a new position, as the Scheduling Coordinator for both the Cedar Rapids and Hiawatha locations. She is happy to help facilitate coordinating your dental needs and looks forward to working with you!

“While away from the office, I enjoy following my son’s activities, being outdoors, gardening, cooking, and spending time with our friends and family.”

“I feel very blessed to have called The Dental Center my employer since 1994. I am extremely grateful for the relationships I have been able to build with our patients and staff over the years. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by so many wonderful people!”

Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace

Hannah

When you evaluate a dental office, there is much to consider. We believe part of what sets us apart from other dental offices is the quality of our support team. 

We know there is much more to our patients than their teeth! Over the combined 70 years our front desk staff has had working at The Dental Center, we have grown to consider the people we care for as our patients AND our friends.
