Loree • Dental Assistant
I joined the PDA team in 2007 after graduating from the Dental Assisting program of IPFW.
I grew up in Wabash but have lived in Ft. Wayne since 2004. I married my husband Brian in 2010. I enjoy being active and spending time with family and friends. I also love traveling, watching movies and reading.
I've enjoyed working at PDA. It's rewarding to help children and also fun getting to know them personally and watching them grow up.
Alisa • Dental Assistant
Hello, my name is Alisa. I joined the PDA team in April of 1992.
My husband Rob and I live in VanWert, OH. We have two grown children and our youngest son is a senior in high school. We enjoy watching all his sporting events. We enjoy walks through the woods and reading books. We recently became grand parents of a beautiful baby boy and look forward to spoiling him.
Through my many years of working here it's been a fun experience talking to kids and getting to know them and watching them grow up.
I'm proud to be working with such a great team of people in helping educate parents and children in the importance of good dental health.
Stacy • Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Stacy. I joined the PDA team in July of 2001.
I have been married to my husband for five years. We have a daughter, son and a dog that is just like on of the kids. In my free time I like spending time with family and friends, being outdoors as much as possible, and watching my children participate in sports. It is so much fun watching the kids at the office grow up and even go off to college.
Jen • Receptionist
I have been a member of the PDA team since October of 2005. I enjoy getting to know the families that come to our office and seeing the kids grow as the years pass.
I am from Ossian and love the small town atmosphere it offers. My amazing husband, Matt and I have been friends since high school we have a son (Spencer) and two daughters (Kaydence and Piper). We love to spend time with our family whether it is just the five of us or our extended family too. I also love to cook and bake. My favorite recipe to make for anyone is cinnamon chip scones. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
