Tina

Hi, I’m Tina. I’ve managed Schoolhouse Family Dentistry for the last 16 years. It was fun and refreshing to see the changes that Dr. John made when he bought the practice in 2011. It’s been great to be a part of the newest philosophies and technology from digital x-rays to our amazing, one-day, in-house crown process! I’m working more behind the scenes these days but I’m always here to assist with any special needs, requests or concerns you may have. The best part of my job is getting to know our patients and watching their families grow. I feel so blessed to work with such a caring, hilarious group of ladies. I can’t imagine being anywhere else. My loves are my three gentle giant Newfoundland dogs and the time I spend with my husband at our place near Lake Huron. Curling up with a good book and trying out new recipes are close seconds. I look forward to meeting you and your family! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need assistance, I will do my best to help in any way.  


Danielle

Hi, I’m Danielle! I am the Treatment Coordinator here at Schoolhouse Family Dentistry. I am the first smiling face you’ll see when you walk into the office. I have 15+ years of dental experience, with a chair-side assistant background. I enjoy getting to know our patients in the family atmosphere we have created. I am very much a people person, so don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with me! I am here to help you with understanding the treatment recommended by Dr. John and your financial obligations, as well as insurance limitations. You can also find me helping our assistants when they need an extra set of trained hands. My favorite part of working at Schoolhouse is the friendly environment. We have a great staff and even better patients! I love reading, singing, board games spending time with my friends and family, and attending concerts with my my significant other.


Debbie

Hi, I’m Debbie. As the Treatment Plan Coordinator here at the Schoolhouse, my goal is to assist you in planning for any treatment you may need. Guided by Dr. John’s recommendations, I’m here to help you prioritize procedures, and help you understand your financial obligations as well as insurance limitations. I’ve been a part of the Schoolhouse team since Dr. John purchased our practice in 2011. My love outside of the office is my family and the time we spend together. My husband and I enjoy golfing and stealing away up north when we can. I have a grown daughter who is a nurse, and two amazing granddaughters that I am extremely close with. I love to sew, crochet, and create amazing things!  I look forward to getting to know you and working with you. I am only a phone call away should you have any questions.


Kristin

Hi, I’m Kristin. I have been a full time dental hygienist here at Schoolhouse for 21 years! I love my job and every one of my work buddies; it’s like a second home! It has always been my goal to provide professional, thorough, but fun dental appointments. When I am not at the office, I am a homebody doing the things I love, such as spending time with my children and grandchildren, cooking, reading, hiking and doing yard work. When I am not in Brighton I am up north on Lake Michigan doing all of the above!


Sarah

Hi, I'm Sarah - I have been with Schoolhouse since 2011. I began working here as an assistant while I was attending college to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. Once I graduated from the University of Michigan, I became a full-time hygienist here, and I could not be happier! My goal as your hygienist is to provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, to provide optimal treatment in all cases to insure better overall health for my patients, and to develop a bond with all of my patients to instill trust and comfort during their dental appointments. When I'm not at the office, you can find me enjoying nature on my motorcycle, running, or close to a body of water.

Linda

Hi, I’m Linda. I’ve been a dental assistant for 20 years, and I’ve been with Dr. John since he began his practice. I enjoy working with him because he is a patient, caring, and understanding doctor, and he brings these characteristics with him when he is with our patients. My husband and I are very active in our local church and enjoy the relationships that we have made there. We love to ride our motorcycle with some of our friends. Our son is in the Michigan Army National Guard, and our daughter is a dental hygienist and recently was married.
