Christine

Dental Hygienist

I love working with patients of all ages and especially enjoy helping those with dental anxiety or those who have had limited access to dental care.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and have been with Woodview Dental Clinic since 2006. Everyone here shares a deep compassion for our patients. We want each patient to know we care and are here to help them achieve optimal dental health, gently and carefully.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking, playing the piano, painting, and animal care. I love time with my two sons, granddaughter, and my dog and three cats.

Mariah

Dental Hygienist

I enjoy working in dentistry because each patients needs are unique. Providing excellent care for patients to help maintain and achieve their oral health goal is important to me.

I have a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from MN State University, Mankato. I graduated in  2020 and started working at Woodview Dental Clinic shortly after dental offices opened back up from the Covid-19 shut down. Working with this team has been very rewarding, and I appreciate how committed everyone is to caring for our patients.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my family and friends, traveling, and being outside.

Katlyn

Certified, Licensed Dental Assistant

I enjoy the variety of my job. Working in dentistry means no two days are ever the same, as each patient and every procedure is different.

I graduated from South Central College with an Associate’s degree in Dental Assisting and joined Woodview Dental Clinic in 2016. This is a great dental office with an incredible team. We are all reaching for the same goal every day: healthy, beautiful smiles.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and keeping busy with crafting and cooking projects.

Natalie

Licensed Restorative Functions Dental Assistant

The best part of working in a general dental office is the variety of procedures and patients we see. It is a rewarding challenge to help patients young and old work through dental anxiety.

I graduated from the Dental Assisting program at South Central College in 2008. I also completed the Minnesota Dental Board-approved Restorative Expanded Functions program at the University of Minnesota in 2013. I have been part of Woodview Dental Clinic since 2008 and appreciate and love working with this team. They are wonderful people who care about each other and our patients.

In my spare time I enjoy being with friends and family. The quiet time at sunrise is my favorite part of the day – and I love my morning coffee. I love to travel to the mountains and the oceans, and explore nature. While I appreciate the four seasons, the hot summer sun is my favorite.

Elizabeth

Dental Assistant, Administrative

I appreciate the chance to interact with and build friendships with our patients. I enjoy helping with a variety of procedures throughout the day. Keeping patients comfortable and relaxed is very important to me.

I began my career as a dental assistant in 2011. I attended Minnesota State University, Mankato and South Central College where I received an Associate's Degree in Dental Assisting. I joined Woodview Dental Clinic in 2012. We all work together to make sure our patient's needs are met.

My free time is spent with my husband Craig and our two boys, Bryce and Logan. We live on a farm where we raise bison, pigs, chickens, and laying hens.

Lynne “Tork”

Certified, Licensed Dental Assistant

I enjoy being a dental assistant because of the variety of procedures and patients that come with each day. Procedures vary depending on the patient's age and dental situation. It is a good feeling to know at the end of the day that you did your best to make a difference for someone.

I attended Hennepin Technical College in Minneapolis and started my career at Woodview Dental Clinic in 2000. I enjoy working with the doctors and the rest of the dental team because we all have the same mission in mind: keeping our patients healthy and comfortable. It is a feeling of stability when working toward a common goal, respecting each other as you do it.

I live in Sleepy Eye with my husband Logan and our daughter Eva. I enjoy flower gardening and watching our young daughter grow and all of the fun activities that are included with it.

Sue

Licensed Dental Assistant, Administrative

I like helping and working with people and enjoy how each day and every procedure is unique.

I started in the field in 2000, working as a Dental Lab Technician. I attended South Central Technical College, where I received an AAS degree, became a Licensed Dental Assistant in 2003, and joined Woodview Dental Clinic in 2011. My coworkers and our doctors feel like family. They are all good people and make the days enjoyable.

Much of my free time is spent with friends and family. Al is my husband and I have two sons, Alex and Adam, and two Boston Terriers, Oscar and Spencer, too. Outdoor activities are my favorites, especially walking, biking, and flower gardening.

Kayla

Administrative, Dental Hygienist

I love caring for patients and how each person’s visit is different from the person before and the one after them. Each needs a different care approach for their concerns, so I constantly have to think and adjust my approach.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from MSU-Mankato and started working in the field in 2010. In 2012 I was lucky to join the team at Woodview Dental Clinic. We are all committed to the same goal: the dental and overall health of our patients.

My husband and I stay very busy outside of our work hours with our two daughters and their many activities. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling and love being outside.
