Stacey joined Pike Lake Dental Center in 2014 as a dental assistant. Although she is also a registered dental hygienist, she gravitated to an assistant role years ago and continues to love her job. She especially appreciates the variety all her training has enabled her to do. Each day and each patient is different, creating a fun and challenging work environment for her. She is our go-to for Invisalign and has embraced every new piece of technology or dental procedure with gusto. She’s not afraid to jump in on any procedure and has the knowledge and skill to ensure each job is well done. Undoubtedly, she has the loudest laugh in our lunchroom and hallways. We can count on her to be happy and full of energy for life each day.
Stacey grew up in Lakewood Township and lives in Duluth with her husband, Andy, and their two children Grace and Jack. They also have an adorably spoiled little dog named Roxy. She enjoys golfing, reading and spending time with family and friends. Stacey also loves to keep moving, so she enjoys running and has participated in many local races, including the Fitgers 5K and Grandma’s half marathons. She fills the rest of her free time with her two active pre-teens’ schedules, cheering on soccer games and dance competitions. There is no grass that grows underneath her feet!
When asked about her favorite aspect of her job, Stacy says, “I love the artistic part of my job that involves creating things. I also enjoy developing relationships with patients.” There are a lot of opportunities for her to be creative in her role at Pike Lake Dental Center. Stacey has designed thousands of crowns and bridges on the iTero and helped create hundreds of winning smiles.
If Stacey wasn’t working in the dental field, she would be enjoying a career that involves travel. We are thankful she isn’t ready for that yet, as we want to keep her with us as long as possible. Stacey is an invaluable part of our dental team and we can’t imagine the office without her happy spirit and easy going nature. Without a doubt, our patients always enjoy their time with Stacey and look forward to their next visit with her. Stacey is a true gem!
