Elli

Hygiene Assistant

I was born in Lincoln, Nebraska but grew up in Syracuse, Nebraska.  After graduating from Syracuse High School in 2009, I attended the University of Nebraska in Omaha and then on to Southeast Community College, where I graduated from the accredited Dental Assisting Program in 2013.

Since graduating, I worked as an orthodontic assistant.  I enjoyed working with children of all ages and I especially loved the final results of creating a beautiful smile.

I joined Optimal Dental in 2014, my role as a Hygiene Assistant is to assist patients, as well as the needs of the hygienists.  I have great joy in assisting patients and forming new life long relationships.

My husband and I were married in 2014, we added to our family in October 2016 with the birth of our son Barrett, who was welcomed home by our “first born fur baby” Oakley.  My husband and I farm near Syracuse, Nebraska, and when I’m not working as a dental assistant, I’m fulfilling my duties as a farmer’s wife.
