Meet Andie – Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised here in Sioux Falls, SD. One fun fact about me is I am an owner of a Harley Davidson. My family loves to ride, so naturally I started young and have never stopped! My interest in the dental field started as a child. I had wonderful experiences visiting the dentist, making it a treat to go. My family and I are patients of Family Dental Center and have always noted their positive staff and hard work! I now have had the pleasure of joining their team. All this time, I k...

Meet Vicky – Administrator

I joined Family Dental Center in 1983 and it’s been one of the best blessings! I couldn’t have found a team of professionals who care more about their patients! Through the years we have shared many life events which makes all the FDC team feel just like family! It’s a pleasure to be part of a group where the focus is on the patient! Everyone here desires that each patient has a dynamic and rewarding relationship --- with not only their dentist--- but their hygienist, assistant and...

Meet Sarah – Clinical Assistant

I started my career as a dental assistant 18 years ago. I have been with Family Dental Center for the past 5 years. Being a Dental Assistant has been very rewarding. Seeing our patients very comfortable within our office and leaving with a big SMILE is the greatest feeling in the world. In my time outside of the office, my husband Jon and I are busy raising our three children: Emilee, Karlee, and Tucker. Our children keep us busy attending sporting activities. Our family enjoys campi...

Remaining Dental Benefits & Flex Dollars? Don’t lose them!

Do you have remaining insurance benefits or Flex dollars? Now is the time to plan for the completion of your dental treatment before the end of the year. All insurance plans have a yearly maximum. If you do not use this maximum or use up the amount saved to your employee flexible spending account - the remaining balance is typically lost. If you have already met your deductible and you have treatment to be completed, take advantage of your remaining benefits for this year. If necessary, we...

Meet Colleen – Business Assistant

My dental experience began in the orthodontic field. I transitioned into general dentistry when I moved back to Sioux Falls. I have enjoyed meeting the patients at Family Dental Center, and I am amazed by the devotion the patients have to our office. I believe it is a result of the personal care every team member strives to give to the patient. I returned to Sioux Falls in 2012 after living in Tucson, AZ for 10 years to be near my family. We enjoy spending time together at the lake, eating ...

Diabetes and Your Oral Health

Diabetes is a disease caused by the body’s inability to properly use and store glucose. This leads to a high level of blood glucose, which over time can cause problems throughout the body. One area dentists focus on is the gum tissues and teeth. Research has shown that patients with diabetes often have a higher incidence of periodontal (gum) disease and cavities. This is because diabetes often lowers the body’s resistance to infection and also tends to slow any healing process. So, the bacte...

Meet Dr. Lineweber – Dentist

I was born and raised in Rapid City. After high school, I traveled east river to attend USD and then Nebraska for my dental training. Living in Lincoln, NE for 4 years definitely added to my Husker passion! While in dental school, I did my senior externship at Family Dental Center. I was blessed to see a dental practice with dedicated team members and incredible mentors. Their desire to offer a comfortable and personal experience to patients helped influence the type of dentist I wanted to be. A...
