Gretchen brings to us 22 years of dental assisting expertise! In high school, she strongly considered beauty school, but after an educational conversation with her father, she went in a different direction (she still has the cutest hair around!). Gretchen is a graduate of the MATC Dental Assisting Program and she is thankful she made the decision to pursue a career in dentistry. Over the years, she has worked in Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, and Endodontics – but General Family Dentistry is her true love (“I get to do everything!”). Gretchen is a true people lover and enjoys creating beautiful smiles and educating others about how the entire body can be affected by your teeth. In her spare time, she stays busy with her three children – she is a wrestling/football/cheerleading/gymnastics and rodeo mom! When not attending sports she likes to sew, stamp, scrapbook and garden. Never a dull moment!
