Each person in our team shares strong values, knowledge and professionalism, and is dedicated to making your experience the best in the area! We'd like to get to know you! Here's a little background about us:
Office Coordinator/Registered Dental Assistant
I am Dr. MacDougall's Office Coordinator (and assistant when needed). I greet patients when they come in, handle appointments, insurance and many other office needs. I joined the practice in 2O12, bringing with me about 15 years previous dental experience. My educational background came from Kirkwood Community College, University of Iowa and Mt. Mercy College (University) along with various other educational seminars and special interest coursework. I have also worked in sales, business co-ownership, and was a Certified Pharmacy Technician. My diverse background has given me skills and knowledge that serve many needs in the dental office. I enjoy working with our patients, and our friendly, caring staff.
My large family consists of six grown children and seven grandchildren, and enjoy time with them whenever I can. I live with with my husband and two small dogs south of Cedar Rapids. Even though working keeps me busy, I also try to carve time to enjoy reading, sewing, herb and vegetable container gardening, other home projects and music (I still play the flute).
Registered Dental Hygienist
I received my AAS degree in Dental Hygiene from Kirkwood Community College and recently joined the team with Dr. MacDougall. One of my favorite aspects of the profession is getting to know patients and establishing lasting relationships with them. I enjoy learning about oral health and sharing that knowledge with my patients. Outside of the work environment, I coach Varsity Cheerleading for wrestling at a local high school. I enjoy being active with my family, spending time with my pug, Lola, reading, and catching a football or baseball game.
Registered Dental Assistant
I grew up on an acreage in Cedar County with my amazing parents and brother, where I learned the importance of hard work, dedication, and to always follow my dreams. I graduated from Kirkwood Community College's Dental Assisting program, and began my career with the team at Dr. MacDougall's office in 2014. I am blessed to have the opportunity to help give patients a healthy and confident smile, and hope to make a positive impact on their day. At home, I enjoy hunting, showing horses and spending time with my family and friends.
