Barb

Licensed Dental Assistant

I started my dental career in 1988 and joined Potach and Mitchell Dental Clinic in 2001. As an assistant, I complete a variety of tasks all related to patient care. Each day is different and it keeps my job busy and interesting. Even though we’re all very serious about dental health, we know how to lighten up, too. This office is really a lot of fun! My time outside of work is spent with my family, and we love to go camping.


Evan

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have worked for Potach and Mitchell Dental Clinic as a part-time hygienist for the past four years and am excited to now be on the team full-time! The interactions I have with our patients and my coworkers here are the best, and I can’t imagine a better place to work. When time permits, I enjoy spending it with my family and friends, scrap-booking, and watching hockey.


Gail

Registered Dental Hygienist

In the past 12 years I’ve worked here as a hygienist, I’ve gotten to know a lot of people from the community. From children and young adults to seniors, each person has a unique set of needs that are addressed through the cleanings and periodontal maintenance I provide. I enjoy the challenges each day brings and meet them with the help of the rest of our amazing team. At home, I keep busy with my children’s sports activities, along with competitive kart racing in the summer months.


Jeanne

Receptionist/Clerk

I keep open communication between our office, our patients, and specialists’ offices and see that each question is answered and concerns are addressed. I try to make our patients’ experience as stress-free as possible from beginning to end. Our team is made up of extremely compassionate and caring individuals, and we all treat our patients and each other like family. My time at home is spent with my own family, as well as boating and fishing in the summer.


Julie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I chose to join the dental field because I wanted to make a difference in the health of my community. As a hygienist, I work one-on-one with patients to ensure all their oral health needs are met. They’re my favorite part of coming to work each day! Over the years, I’ve seen all kinds of dental work, but I’m proud to say that the work done in our office is by far the best. When not at the office, my husband and I enjoy watching our three children in hockey, volleyball, and dance. We also love to go camping in the summer.


Karen

Scheduler/Front Office

I began working here in 1993 and enjoy the friendly, professional atmosphere we provide at our office. As I schedule hygiene appointments and take care of general office duties, I get to catch up with our patients and make sure we’re doing everything we can to make their experience here the best. That’s always our number one goal. In my leisure time I enjoy gardening, biking, fishing, and really anything that takes me outdoors.


Katie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I began in our office in 2002, one year after graduating from hygiene school. The best part of my job is working directly with our patients. They have a wide range of dental needs and each day presents unique challenges that I am excited to meet. I love working with our patients of all ages, whether I’m treating an adult with periodontal needs or comforting a child during their very first dental visit. I am happily married with four wonderful children. I enjoy attending their many activities, spending time outdoors, and traveling with my husband.


Kim

Licensed Dental Assistant

I assist our doctors at chairside and have been doing so for the past 14 years. We have a great team here and we all love working together to improve our patients’ health. Our doctors are great as well; they truly care about each patient they see. Outside of work, my husband and I enjoy riding our motorcycle and camping with our family as much as possible.


Lisa

Registered Dental Hygienist

I began working here more than 20 years ago and have enjoyed every moment of providing quality hygiene care to our patients and their families. Everyone in our office is caring, gentle, and supportive of our patients’ needs, goals, and concerns. The end results are always happy patients! My husband and I enjoy attending our three children’s sporting events and watching the Vikings and Twins. I also like going for walks, bike rides, reading, and vacationing up north.


Martha

Financial Coordinator

I am responsible for all aspects of our front office including scheduling and verifying insurance. I help our patients get the most out of their policy benefits and plan their treatment so they can get all the dental care they need. If I can make our patients’ time with us efficient as well as effective, I know I’ve done my job well. I enjoy horseback riding, gardening, home improvement projects, camping, bike riding, walking my dogs, and spending time with my family.


Robin

Licensed and Certified Dental Assistant

I love my job because I get to work with great people every single day. I make sure our patients are happy and comfortable, and that our doctors have everything they need to provide our patients with the quality of care they deserve. My free time is happily spent on our pontoon boat with my family and friends.


Shelley

Licensed Dental Assistant

I do a little bit of everything in our office, all so that our patients have a comfortable experience while getting a healthy mouth and smile. I take pride in working with such exceptional doctors because the work they do is of such high quality. They’re so good at making our patients smile! My time away from work is spent enjoying the great outdoors with my husband and two teenage sons.


Tonya

Registered Dental Hygienist

I treat patients of all ages with the best oral care possible, and I have been since 1995. Working with our patients and getting to know them on a personal level is a very fulfilling aspect of my job. It’s rewarding for me to see them improve their oral health because of what they’ve learned from me. At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our kids, attending sporting events, traveling, and camping.
