I have been in the dental field for 29 years and enjoy it so much. I have been with Dr. O'Donald's team for almost 19 years. I work with some great people and I think we create a great atmosphere and family bond with our patients.


In my spare time I love to bike and exercise and enjoy outdoor activities with my husband. I have two adult children and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I love spending the summers at the lake with them and making memories.


Katie

My dental career started 25 years ago.  I have been a team member for 5 years now with Dr. O'Donald.  My wishes came true when I found such an exceptional dental family to call home and continue my career.  Building relationships with our patients and making everyone feel special is important to me.  I love to make our patients feel welcomed and comfortable.

I am happily married to my best friend, Ken.  We have 3 children, 3 adorable grandchildren, and 2 furry friends.  We are big sports fans, which includes family game nights, kayaking and boating.  I am also an avid gardener.  Love my flowers.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my two sons and my "princess" granddaughter, as well as crafting and home decorating.

Lori 

 I feel very privileged to be working with 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 found it both rewarding and fulfilling until 2011 when my health took a turn. Although I am no longer able to practice dental hygiene and miss it dearly, I am thankful to be helping the administrative team.

When I am not at the office, 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.


Amy

IMG_8393.JPGI am the newest member of this awesome dental team. I was destined to be in the dental field as I knew at an early age that is what I wanted to do. I have over 40 years of dental experience. I graduated from Ferris State University and was a certified dental assistant for over 10 years before transitioning to the administrative side of dentistry.

My favorite part of dentistry is getting to know patients and making them a part of my dental family. There’s nothing better than seeing people smile – it is often the first impression you can give, and it can brighten anyone’s day!

In my spare time, I enjoy mushrooming, camping and deer hunting with my husband. I like crafting and playing piano too. My husband and I have 4 adult children and 3(+one on the way) grandchildren that we enjoy every chance we can.

My childhood dream was to become a health care provider.
