Holly – Office Manager
I have been with the practice for over 16 years and I love that I can get to know each patient personally. Everyone at LIFESmiles strives to make each patient feel comfortable. We pride ourselves in knowing our patients on a personal basis, and we work hard to be a very fun and energetic team. We also maintain a common goal to make each day as smooth as possible with a little craziness thrown in for fun! I feel confident that we provide the best dental care possible. I have been married for 17 years and I have one adorable 8-year-old daughter. In my free time, I like to sew, quilt, camp, and hike.

I enjoy reading, camping, and anything crafty.

I provide our patients with preventive dental procedures, treatment, and maintenance therapy for periodontal disease, oral hygiene instruction, health history screening, preventive sealants, and local anesthetic administration. With over 30 years of experience, the care I provide is gentle but thorough. I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them have healthier mouths. My husband and I moved to Boise in 2004 from Bellevue, Washington. We have a son and daughter-in-law in Olympia, Washington, and a son and daughter-in-law in Dallas, Texas.

I have been helping our patients achieve their oral health goals here at LIFESmiles since 2009. I feel so fortunate to work in a field where I get to make a positive difference in the lives of our patients. Our doctors and everyone on our team are very thorough and truly care about everyone we meet. I have four grown children, two granddaughters, and nine horses to keep me busy when I’m not in the office. I also love the rodeo, watching my children compete, team roping, and firefighting.
Jill – Dental Hygienist
I have been with this practice for over ten years and I love providing gentle hygiene care to people of all ages. I enjoy getting to know them personally, celebrating their accomplishments, and lending support through trials. I get great satisfaction from helping people who are embarrassed about their dental condition achieve good dental health and become happy with their smile. The doctors in our office truly care about our patients, and not just about their dental needs. It’s obvious they enjoy what they do. I am happily married with two boys, an amazing daughter-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter and adorable grandson. We have lived in Boise for the past 21 years and we enjoy the great outdoors. Some of my favorite activities include dirt biking, hunting, horseback riding, and camping with my family.
Stephanie – Dental Hygienist
I have been with this practice for over 3 years and I love working with a group of people who are constantly trying to learn and improve themselves to help our patients have great experiences and receive the highest quality care possible. I work hard every day to help our practice succeed by working as a team, providing individualized care for the patients, and greeting each day with a smile. Prior to my dental career, I graduated from Idaho State University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. I am happily married and we have two young boys with a third due in October. In my free time, I enjoy camping, hiking, playing board games, playing with my boys, and hanging out with my family and friends.
