Office Manager

My name is Tammy, and I have been in the dental field for 35 years. I started in my career as a dental assistant and over the years I moved to the front desk. Since then I have proceeded to management. I enjoy interacting with patients and making the dental experience as great as possible. For the love of dentistry and the appreciation of great dentists, including the tremendous staff here at The Dental Spa, I know as a team we will help our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that they can be proud of. As for my personal life, I am a mom of two young adult children. In my spare time I enjoy running half marathons, kayaking, traveling, and most importantly being with family and friends.



Dental Hygienist

I'm Holly and I've been practicing full time dental hygiene for 22+ years. I have been working with The Dental Spa for over 7 years, allowing me to enjoy each and every patient I’ve worked with. Learning about them and educating them on achieving their optimal oral and systemic health!! I am proud to be part of The Dental Spa family! I have been married to my husband Marc for 18 years and a mom to our son Dominick who is 16!! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book and soaking up the sunshine.



Care Coordinator

I have been working in dentistry for over 38 years, all with Dr. Gary Sasaki! I have worked as both a RDA (registered dental assistant) and a patient care coordinator. One of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is to see how changing a patient’s smile transforms their lives.  I have a husband, daughter and a German Shepherd named Stormy that enrich my life every day.  In my free time I enjoy reading, camping and crafting.

Care Coordinator

I started working at The Dental Spa in 1997. And, after all this time, I still love my job! I’ve worked as an Assistant, Lab Technician and now a Care Coordinator. I’ve been fortunate enough to watch this family practice grow and become what it is today. When I’m not at work, I enjoy painting, reading spending time with friends and family.



Dental Assistant

Hi, I’m Paulette. I’m Dr. Ryan’s assistant. I’ve been with The Dental Spa for a little over a year, but I’m not new to dental. I’ve been in the field for 38 years.  I’ve raised 2 awesome humans, who are 19 & 27. In my spare time you’ll find me with friends biking, kayaking, standup paddle boarding or at the gym.




Hi, my name is Kristen. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Michigan in 2006, however started at the Dental Spa in April 2023. It is so important to me that my patients to feel comfortable coming to the dentist, which is why I am so happy to be at the Dental Spa. I love being able to give every patient the individualized care that they need to help them through their appointment. The Dental Spa team truly cares about the patients! As far as my personal life, I love spending time with my husband and 3 children, gardening, and traveling.




Hi I’m Rachel. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2018 from University of Detroit Mercy and have loved my career ever since.  In September 2023 I was thrilled to join The Dental Spa. My passion is providing the best possible care to my patients while educating them on ways to maintain and/or improve their oral health. I enjoy my continuing education courses and using new ways to make my patients comfortable during their appointments. Outside the office you can find me running, singing, cooking, baking, or volunteering. I also enjoy spending time with my two younger sisters and parents (and their pets) whether at home or up north in Onekama at our family cottage.

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Annmarie, and I have been in the dental field for twenty-four years. I started working in a dental lab and then transitioned to a dental assistant, which I love. I'm married and have two fur babies and one daughter who will be graduating this year. She plans on becoming a zookeeper and will go to college in Florida. In my spare time, I love to cook and garden. My passion is authentic Italian cooking, and I grow my own Italian tomatoes and herbs and have perfected the perfect red sauce. That even my Italian relatives would agree with. I'm so glad to be a part of this wonderful team, as patient care is my passion
