HYGIENISTS

I have worked with Dr. O'Donald since 1994, minus 2 years with Cherry Street's School Travel Program in Grand Rapids. I am passionate about dental health, the relationships made with our patient family and helping to improve their overall health. I am also taking online classes through Ferris to obtain my BS in dental hygiene.

I have two children; my son, Cade and daughter, Tressa whom I devote most of my time to. They are active in soccer and gymnastics so I spend much of my time as a chauffeur and cheerleader. They've even got me playing on an indoor women's soccer league! I am originally from Escanaba, in the UP, and try to visit my family as often as possible. In my spare time, I love to sing, read and hang out with my kids. We just bought a trailer and are going to try camping this year!



Laura

I graduated from Ferris State University in 1992, with a degree in Applied Biology, I then decided to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene.  I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1994, and have been with Dr. O'Donald for 19 of those years.  I have a strong passion for helping our patients improve their dental and overall health.  I love getting to know my patients on an individual basis.  I find joy in providing and customizing the very best care and making my patients smile. 

In my spare time, I love being with my husband, Dan, of 23 years and our six children.  I dedicate much of my time as an active sports mom and participant.  When I am not partaking in my children's activities, I enjoy boating, camping, and gardening.  I am also an active member of St. Charles Catholic Church and the Greenville Garden Club.



Lori 

I feel very privileged to be working the staff of Dr. John O'Donald and team. I have over 19 years of experience in the dental field and appreciate every aspect of this office from the advanced technology to the team orientated atmosphere. In 1996, I started working as a dental assistant and developed a strong passion toward the dental profession. I pursued my education and earned my Associates in Science of Dental Hygiene from Ferris State University in 2002. I have since enjoyed practicing dental hygiene in every aspect and find it both rewarding and fulfilling. My goal in dental hygiene is to provide the highest level of care by being gentle and thorough. I also believe it is important to convey the importance of a healthy clean mouth as it relates to total body health. 

When not practicing dental hygiene I enjoy spending time with my husband Jason, and our three children, Keagan, Kyleigh, and Kamdon. Although I am a Northern Wisconsin native, I have resided in Michigan for the last 20 years. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, shopping, watching football, and reading.


Shannon

 

I joined Dr. O'Donald's dental team in 2013, with the merge of Dr. Haven's office.  I am a graduate of GRCC dental hygiene school and bring twenty plus years of experience as a dental hygienist.

My goal is to treat each patient as an individual, improve their dental and overall health through education while providing gentle and and thorough dental care.  I love the relationships built with my patients over the years; they are my dental family.

During my off time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Scott, and our three children, Sam, Chloe, and Kaden.  Most days, I am my kids taxi from soccer to horseback riding.  I also enjoy traveling, camping, hiking and many outdoor activities and sports

 

Niki

NikiIt is my pleasure to work as a Registered Dental Hygienist for Dr. O'Donald.  I am graduate from Grand Rapids Community College with an Associates degree in Applied Science.

My childhood dream was to become a health care provider. Throughout my years of being a patient of Dr. O'Donald's and talking and being educated by his hygienist, it was then I knew I wanted to become a hygienist myself.  I strive to give patients the ultimate comfort in my chair and provide educational advice.

I am married to my best friend, Alec, and have two wonderful children. Together we enjoy adventuring and spending time as a family.
