Kelsey
Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Bozeman - in fact, I’m the fourth generation! I spent some time in Arizona before I decided that it was too hot for me and I came back to where I belong. I have spent the past 2 years in dental, with everything from orthodontics to pediatrics. I love meeting all of our fantastic patients and learning a fun fact about each of them, and hopefully getting a laugh if I can! A little fun fact about me: I was raised on a dairy farm and I enjoy spending time with all sorts of animals. My favorite pastimes bounce between hiking, camping, playing music, and hanging out with my amazing family. If you happen to see me, you can help me learn something new by giving me a piece of trivia!

Things that make me smile:
My family, horses, Star Wars, instrument/music stores, dancing

Joni
Dental Assistant - RHS CERTIFIED

I was born and raised in Bozeman and remember it from its tiny town days. I rode my horse down Babcock when it was a dirt road! I moved away and lived in Africa when I was a teen and then later on as an adult. While teaching in Africa as an adult I viewed many fascinating animals and wildlife. An interesting fact about myself is that I have done dental work on baboons! I lived in Texas for many years, where I taught kindergarten, before moving back to Montana—my home. I have worked in pediatric dentistry for over 7 years, and get excited about all the sweet kids I get to meet here at the office.

Things that make me smile:
Going to our family's cabin with my dad, camping, traveling, and my dog Izzy!
