Carrie

Dental Hygienist

My name is Carrie and I have been with The Dental Spa team since 2011. The field of dentistry is all I have ever done. I started my career in high school as a dental assistant and later became a dental hygienist. What I love most abou my profession is helping people achieve the smile that they have always dreamed of, as well as educating them about the importance of a healthy mouth to have a healthy body. I am grateful for the connections I make with my patients, who inevitably feel like family. I am proud of the entire Dental Spa team. We work together to provide the best possible service for our patients.

In my personal life, I am married and have 2 grown adult sons. We enjoy going to the Upper Peninsula where we have a cabin and spending time with family and friends.

Jayne

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.

Kelly

Practice Manager

I’m Kelly and I’m the Practice Manager. I love my job and the staff here at The Dental Spa. I started in dental in high school as an assistant. Assisted for several years and decided to move to the front desk and then management. For me it’s about building relationships with patients and staff. I’ve learned that people will forget what you did and what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel. In my personal life, I am dating my best friend and have a 23 year old daughter. My babies now are 2 goldendoodles, Daisy and Oakley. They make me smile every day.
