I like taking care of my patients and getting to know them better with each visit. Helping people keep their mouth healthy, and showing them how to keep their smile in great shape, is really rewarding!
Amy works in the clinic, where she performs gentle and thorough cleanings, scaling and root planing procedures, and takes care of patients’ periodontal health. She also applies fluoride, places sealants, and provides education to patients on their specific oral health needs and homecare. Amy enjoys being part of a close-knit team that is serious about dental health and just as serious about having fun and ensuring a positive atmosphere.
Amy and her husband Bob reside on a farm by Jansen with their dogs, kitties, and turtle. Their two sons, Mark and Tommy, are now off at college. When the boys were younger, Amy was a football, wrestling, and trap Mom; Cub Scout Leader and currently the Charter Organization Representative for Troop 302; and Treasurer of the Fairbury Booster Club. She is also a member of Fairbury United Methodist Church, where she serves as a Sunday School teacher and on several committees. She fills her time going to concerts, footballs games, and being with friends and family.
I like interacting with and building relationships with our patients. Getting to know people over the years, and keeping up with their families and activities, is a lot of fun!
Julie wears two hats in our office. She holds a certificate in dental assisting and works in the clinic, providing chairside assistance to the doctors during procedures. She is also a treatment coordinator, working with patients to design their treatment in a way that fits their clinical and personal needs. Julie appreciates working with doctors and teammates who are professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to making the health and welfare of their staff and patients a priority.
Julie and her husband Mitch, together, have two daughters and one grandson. When she’s not in the office, Julie enjoys working in the garden and tending to her yard, walking her dog, and horseback riding.
I love making dental visits a positive experience for my patients. It is my goal to have healthier and happy people leave my chair – and maybe (hopefully!) even look forward to their next visit!
Kenidee provides dental and periodontal care, including cleaning and scaling and root planing treatment. Focusing on patient education, she helps people understand why it is important to keep their oral cavity healthy and how to develop better dental hygiene habits. Kenidee feels fortunate to work with team members who support each other and to be in a practice where everyone works toward the same goal: providing worry-free, personalized dental care.
Kenidee recently moved back to her home town of Chester with her fiancé, Macon. When they’re not busy planning their March 2021 wedding, they love time with their families. The second child in a family of four, Kenidee loves being an aunt to two nephews, along with supporting her younger siblings in their extracurricular activities. In what free time they can find, she and her fiancé love being outside and traveling to explore new places.
I like working with our patients and learning about their lives and families. Being able to make a dental visit a pleasant experience, and seeing happy smiles at the end, is the best feeling!
Mary works in the clinic, where she assists the doctors, chairside, with different procedures, and offers support to our patients. She also works with patients to design their treatment plan, walking each through the process, discussing options and financials, and answering questions. Mary enjoys being in a fun yet professional office, where the doctors and team care for each patient as family.
Mary and her husband of more than 30 years have two grown children, two delightful grandchildren, and three dogs – who, Mary says, are like children. Time with family and friends is Mary’s priority when she’s not at work. She also likes to hunt, fish, and attend car races. She enjoys volunteering, too, and is currently in charge of the community center in her hometown, cleaning and reserving the center.
