After graduating from high school, I started dental assisting with on-the-job training and went through the program at STI/Business and Industry training. After going through the ye...

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...

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 ...
