"Our team is close-knit: most of our staff members have been with the practice for 20 years, or more, and all have years of experience. Each is talented, glad to help their teammates, and dedicated to getting to know our patients while delivering personalized care. Our team members go out of their way to help our patient family and maintain a warm, friendly, safe environment for all who visit."
My dental career started in 1977 and I joined this practice in 1982. Over the years I have met and gotten to know many wonderful families and love the friendships we’ve developed. It’s rewarding to help people I care about maintain their dental health.
As a hygienist, I provide dental prophylaxis (cleanings), periodontal cleanings, preventive care, oral cancer screenings, and take X-rays. Much of my time is spent teaching patients about good dental hygiene practices and how they can improve their home care.
I am married, have two beautiful and amazing daughters, and an English Springer spaniel. We’re looking forward to our oldest daughter’s wedding in the Fall of 2019. In my free time I enjoy knitting and crocheting while watching the Tigers. I also love flowers, working in my garden, and participating in bible study with one of my best friends.
I have worked in the dental field since 2001, starting my career with this practice. I enjoy helping people feel at home in our office, getting to know them and their families, and making sure they are comfortable during visits.
Much of my day is spent in our clinic. I assist Dr. Solt with procedures, including fillings, implants, and dentures. I also take impressions, assist with the Clear Correct consultations, order office supplies, sterilize tools and equipment, and maintain the lab.
My family keeps me busy outside the office. I have seven children: I was a foster caregiver for a few years, adopted three of my children, and now have three grandchildren with a fourth on the way. We love time outdoors and being together. Our family just purchased a camper and we’re planning for a lot of camping in the near future.
I have been in the dental field since 1999 and found my professional home and family here in 2000. I like the time I spend with our patients, learning about their families and interests, and building trust. With trust comes a willingness to listen to my advice so patients are able to keep their smiles healthy.
In addition to regular and periodontal cleanings, I take X-rays, offer preventive treatments, and provide lots of patient education. Each person has their own oral hygiene concerns, so I talk them through what they can do, at home, to improve and maintain their dental health.
I spend much of my free time with my husband and two sons. My boys play sports, so I spend a lot of time cheering them on. I also love being outside; my favorite place to relax is at the beach.
Dental Assistant CDA
I have been in the dental field for over 25 years and was pleased to join this office in 2018. I like building trusting, positive relationships with each patient and making sure they feel comfortable and supported during visits.
I assist Dr. Solt with procedures, manage lab cases, handle sterilization, and coordinate our clinical daily patient flow.
My life is shared with my husband Bob. I have three adult children, as well as a dog and a cat. I like the outdoors, hiking, kayaking, and walking my dog.
Office Manager/Financial Coordinator
I started in the dental field in 1976 and found my home with this office in 1977. I enjoy the wonderful people I have become friends with and especially like getting to know so many families. I try to make everyone feel comfortable and at home in the office and to let them know we care.
I schedule appointments, provide treatment estimates, and help patients by answering their questions.
Outside of work I enjoy time with husband and family. We spend most of our summers in Grand Haven.
