When not in the office, Trudi enjoys watching the latest movies, cooking, watching football, and spending time with her family.
Susie has been working in our front office for the past ten years. She is responsible for the scheduling of patients for Dr. Fletcher and the hygienists. She is the friendly voice on the phone and the first smile you see when you come in the front door.

Our Dental Assistants
Trina is one of Dr. Fletcher's three chair side dental assistants, but can be found throughout the office helping with her great multi-tasking skills. Trina joined our office in 2006 and worked in several other offices after she completed her dental assistant training at Galen College.

When Trina is not keeping Dr. Fletcher on track, she and her husband Andrew enjoy weekend getaways and cheering from the sidelines for their two adorable little girls.
Debbie has been a dental assistant with our office since 1998. She has the most experience assisting Dr. Fletcher and has exceptional skills in all aspects of general, cosmetic and implant dentistry. Her strengths include patience and gentleness with all of our patients (not to mention Dr. Fletcher!). Debbie and her husband John live locally and are busy parents and grandparents. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering with the dental van and dedicates extra time to her church.
Shelley is the newest addition to our assisting staff and before coming to our office she has been assisting since 1991. She loves getting to know the patients and her skills include general, cosmetic and surgical assisting.

Our Dental Hygienists
You may remember Lana as the smile that greeted you at the front door when she worked initially as a scheduling coordinator. She then decided to pursue dental hygiene and after completing her coursework began seeing patients in our office. If you would like an appointment with Lana, she is available Monday through Thursday.
When she is not cleaning teeth or helping Dr. Fletcher fine tune his 1980's music playlist, you can find her active in the community as a Pilates instructor.
Ashley literally grew up in our office. Before choosing a career as a dental hygienist she and her siblings were all patients of Dr. Fletcher. Ashley does her best everyday to remind Dr. Fletcher just how old he actually is. She works Monday through Thursday in our office and enjoys the opportunity to work with each of our patients.
