Meet Our Team
We welcome you with warm smiles to our practice!
Our friendly, dedicated, and energetic team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive experience every time you visit our cosmetic and family dentistry in Richfield MN.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota Dental School with a Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene. I started working in my profession in 1997 and came to Dr. Berg’s office in 2001. I find great satisfaction in seeing patients improve with their oral care due to the information and education I have provided. I also enjoy meeting new people, getting to know a little bit about them and their families, and establishing a trusting relationship. Helping a patient feel comfortable and treating each patient as an individual with their specifically focused needs is of great importance to me. I am a native of Minnesota and live in Bloomington with my husband and two children. Some of my favorite activities are singing with a quartet, camping, hiking, and gardening.
I work with our patients to explain their benefits, helping them feel comfortable in the dental setting, and help to understand their dental needs. I worked as a dental assistant before transitioning to office manager, so I understand many of the dental procedures we offer and can explain them thoroughly to our patients. I’m a native Minnesotan, but have also lived in Omaha and Las Vegas. I now live close to the office in Richfield with my son and Yorkie. In my free time, I enjoy walking around the lakes, football, and spending time with my son.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist in the clinical setting for over twenty years. I also spent time teaching at a local dental hygiene program. I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Mankato with degrees in Dental Hygiene and Public Health. My area of concentration was Patient Education.
The best part of my job is developing relationships, helping to ensure each patient feels valued, respected, and cared for. I strive to make the appointment both informative and enjoyable.
I grew up enjoying the lakes of Southwest Minneapolis, then moved to the Savage area where I currently live with my husband, two kids, and two dogs. My son enjoys playing hockey and my daughter is a gymnast. Most of my free time is spent at a rink or in a gym. I enjoy reading and spending time up north.
Registered Dental Assistant
I'm one of the newer assistants in the office, having started in January of 2014. However I have 20 plus years of experience working in the dental field. I help welcome patients and make them comfortable throughout their visit. Some of my duties in the office are supporting the dental team and dentist by preparing treatment rooms, patients, instruments, and materials. I also work closely with the dentist, handing instruments so the procedures progress smoothly and efficiently. I strive to make the patients experience a pleasant one. It feels good to help patients feel at ease and comfortable during their visit with us. I want all patients to feel satisfied with their services and experience at our office. I'm a native Minnesotan and live in Richfield. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son, Nick, my papillon, Jack-Jack, and gardening. I love the four seasons of Minnesota.
