Office Manager

Having over 7 years of dental experience, my favorite part of the job is helping patients find what treatment is best for them. I love being able to insure that my patients and their family recieve the ultimate benefit from their insurance plan while having an amazing experience at Lakeville Advanced Dental Care.

Tanya works closely with many insurance companies by sending out pre-treatment estimates, following up on claims that need attention and accurately determining insurance benefits. She will always be there with you every step of the way! She will make sure to maximize your visits and schedule your time as effeciently as possible.

When Tanya is not helping patients with their insurance and financial needs she loves spending time with two beautiful children. She also enjoys traveling, trying new foods from all over the world and spending time with her family and friends. Having grown up in Lakeville, Tanya understands the value of local community, togetherness and consistant care. Even though MN is her forever home, she absolutely loves the summer and heat.



Patient Care Coordinator

The best part of my role as a patient care coordinator is helping patients feel comfortable, calm and welcomed the moment they walk into our office. And ensuring they receive the best customer service care through out their entire visit. I love meeting new patients and also love seeing familiar faces every day!

Vary makes sure our patients receive the best care possible when it comes to the front desk. She schedules appointments, coordinates treatment plans, and handles insurance for patients. Vary enjoys working at Lakeville Advanced Dental Care because it is such a family-oriented place that is committed to helping everyone grow. Vary is an amazing part of our office family!

Vary enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 boys, exploring the city and going on food adventures! She also enjoys just being at home, working on DIY projects, watching movies or learning recipes in the kitchen.



Clinical Director/Dental Assistant

Dentistry is my passion! Growing up I had extreme dental anxiety so I feel I bring a unique ability to relate and reassure our patients that they are getting the best possible quality care here at our office. With our different sedation options we can help calm your fears and anxiety!

She has extensive training in our CAD/CAM technology and hand designs all of the same day crowns/bridges and veneers in our office. Lab work is her favorite thing to do and we custom make each clear aligner for our orthodontic patients!

When she's not at the office Joey loves to spend time with her two daughters who are in college at MSU-Mankato. She also loves to hike, read books, travel and spend time at the cabin up north! Spending time with her family back in Idaho is her favorite vacation spot.

Dentistry is my jam! I love getting to know and care for our patients. Making sure that once you are in the chair you are relaxed and comfortable is my specialty!

I love being a Dental Hygienist! I really enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level and taking the time to get to know them to evaluate their oral health needs. I love listening to the concerns of my patients and easing any dental anxiety they may have. I have a tendency to use laughter to help lighten a situation in order to help my patients relax.
