I graduated from Lake Area Tech in 2011, and I have been with Dakota Dental since 2011 and assist Dr. Tim.  I love what I do and those that I work with.  My favorite past time is relaxing and spending time with friends and family.  I will never turn down an ice cream treat.

I graduated from Minnesota West in 1999, and I have been with Dakota Dental since 1999.  The relationships I have built with our patients while assisting Dr. Rola, and now Dr. Schuler, is my favorite part of the job.  I love spending time with my husband and kids.

I graduated from Lake Area Tech in 2016 as a registered dental assistant and started at Dakota Dental. Then continued my education and became a certified dental assistant in 2018 and assist Dr. Kappenman. My favorite part about Dakota Dental is the upbeat, energetic, and encouraging atmosphere making it a pleasure to be here every day. I enjoy watching a smile transform with cosmetic dentistry and helping patients through their anxieties of coming to the dentist. In my free time I like to binge watch Netflix or Hulu, play at the park with my son, and spend time with friends and family.
