Lisa joined the team at Pike Lake Dental Center in 2006 as a dental assistant. Since that time, she has continuously developed skills in the dental field and embraced each new piece of dental technology as it has come along. She completed the restorative functions course, which allows her to perform many additional procedures and ensures variety for her each day at the office. She enjoys assisting with intricate procedures such as dental implants and designing crowns on the CEREC. She has taken the lead on 3D printing and is the go-to person for many of the office’s techy questions. She is a problem solver and an integral piece of our dental team.
Lisa grew up just outside of Eveleth and lives in Esko now with her husband, Travis, their son, TJ, and their family dog, Daisy. In her free time, she is an outdoor enthusiast and enjoys camping, fishing, ATVing and hunting. She often has tales to share of her weekend adventures with her family. Lisa is happy to pass along her love of nature to her son and is thrilled he enjoys the outdoors as much as she does.
A veteran in the dental field for nearly 20 years, Lisa shares her favorite aspect of her job as, “Developing relationships with patients over the years.” With her nearly 17 years invested at Pike Lake Dental Center, those relationships are certainly strong! Our patients look forward to catching up with her, even though they are at the office to have dental work done. She is able to put anxious patients at ease and make them feel comfortable with some small talk and a smile. Others are simply happy to catch up with an old friend as they sit in the dental chair for treatment.
If she wasn’t working at Pike Lake Dental Center, Lisa would be found owning and operating a local food truck offering unique and delicious food. Until she buys her first food truck, we are thrilled to have her continue as a long-time member of our dental team. Lisa’s calm and steady presence when treating patients is unmatched. Our patients know they are in expert hands with Lisa!
