Meet the Team

 

Jacqueline — Registered Dental Hygienist

staffI joined the dental field in 2006 and began working for Dr. McCreary in 2013. As a registered dental hygienist, I provide patient cleanings, take x-rays, administer fluoride treatments, evaluate the condition of patient's gums, and provide instructions for oral home care. My favorite part of my job is making patients feel comfortable during their dental appointments be easing any anxiety they may have while providing them with a thorough cleaning. I am happy to be a part of Dr. McCreary's team and enjoy working with a dentist who provides exceptional care for his patients. 

When I'm not at work, I like to go to the beach, read, research new recipes, and spend time with my son.


Ronda — Registered Dental Hygienist

RondaI joined the dental field in 1993 and began working part-time for Dr. McCreary in 2016. As a registered dental hygienist, I take care of patients' comprehensive hygiene needs. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and educating them about their oral health and needs. I feel blessed to be surrounded by such a caring, supportive, professional, and highly competent group of amazing people who are all dedicated to giving our patients the very best in comprehensive dental care.

I am a wife to my favorite fishing partner, Dan, and a mother to my wonderful son, Tripp. I love to fish for anything that swims, tournament fish, boat, and be on the water.


Jamie — Registered Dental Hygienist

JamieI began working in the dental field in 2015 and joined McCreary Dentistry in 2019. As a registered dental hygienist, I help patients feel at ease when coming into the dental office, prevent or arrest gum disease with regular dental cleanings, and educate them on keeping their teeth for life. My favorite part of my job is seeing the results -- a healthy smile! Dr. McCreary is pretty easy to get along with and likes to joke around. The rest of the team can be described in the same way.

I have one daughter (she's my mini me) who brings so much joy to my life. When I'm not working or spending time with family, you can find me baking cookies or on a spin bike (to work off all those cookies, of course).


Charlotte — Registered Dental Hygienist

charlotteI joined the dental field in 1974 and began with this practice in 1991. I retired in 2018 but enjoy filling in and seeing long-time patients as well as meeting new ones. As a registered dental hygienist, I provide our patients’ cleanings and examine their gums for any abnormalities. I also perform some periodontal treatments, such as root planing and scaling, take X-rays, and perform fluoride treatments. My favorite parts of my job are getting to know our patients, making their treatments as smooth as possible, and offering excellent instruction for our patients to maintain the amazing smiles they receive from Dr. McCreary.

My wonderful husband, Byron, and I have been married for 35 years, and we have a son and a daughter. For my relaxation, I enjoy a paper crafting hobby as a demonstrator with Stampin' UP!, and I also enjoy cooking and reading. 


Kristina — Dental Assistant

KristinaI love working at McCreary Dentistry because Dr. McCreary really cares about each patient and our team is like a big family. We have such a welcoming atmosphere for our patients—many of them say they feel “at home” in our office. We even have a variety of amenities in the office that really help our patients relax in our care.

What I enjoy the most about dentistry is helping people to achieve great smiles and feel wonderful about themselves. I get to work alongside Dr. McCreary as he transforms the patient’s smile—and many times the person leaves feeling more self-confident! When I’m not assisting Dr. McCreary, I am spending time with my family.

I love helping patients understand their dental needs and financial options and then seeing how satisfied they are once their treatment is completed.

I joined McCreary Dentistry in 2016.

Although dentistry is new to me, I still find joy in doing what I do best -- taking excellent care of our patients!

I act as a liaison between our patients and their insurance companies in an effort to make the insurance filing and payment processing as simple as possible. I am fortunate to work remotely from my home in Nebraska, but I also get to spend time in the office 2 - 3 times per year. Who doesn't love a trip to Florida?!

I was born and raised in Nebraska and played volleyball at Kansas State University. My husband, Tyson, and I have four children - Jaden, Payton, Tanner, and Brynn. We live in a small town, so I stay very involved with our school and community. I like to golf and bowl, but my favorite activities are watching my kids in their MANY activities.

We all do our best to ensure that our patients enjoy their time with us while also receiving exceptional care and treatment.
