Lisa L. (Hygienist)
I love my job! I have been a hygienist at Laser Dental since 2001. Having been in dentistry since 1981, I started as a dental assistant, then advanced as a hygienist after I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Detroit-Mercy in 1996. I have a passion for what I do, but enjoy it even more since I started working here. I strive to provide quality and gentle care and your experience will be as comfortable as possible. I have furthered my dental education and am now certified in administering local anesthesia. Children really enjoy coming to see me, because I know how to make their visits fun.
I have two children. My daughter Angela graduated from OU in 2009 and my son Dominic is at Wayne State pursuing a business degree. My husband Rick is an engineer for DTE and he has two daughters, Rachael and Stephanie.
When I am not busy with my career here, I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren! I love to golf and travel. I hope to soon travel to a third-world country and volunteer my dental services to those less fortunate.
Vanessa R. (Hygienist)
I am a dental hygienist at Laser Dental Associates. I have been working at Laser Dental since I graduated from O.C.C. in 1991. During high school and college I worked as a dental assistant for five years. My experience as an assistant led to my career choice as a hygienist. After twenty-two years, I still love what I do and the office I work at.
I am married and have two children. My husband, Michael is a design supervisor in the auto industry. My son, Christian is in high school and plays lacrosse. My daughter, Rachel is in elementary school. Rachel plays basketball and soccer. Our family loves to take tropical vacations and relax poolside in the summer. I enjoy long walks, reading, movies and lunch with my mother or with friends.
As a hygienist I hope to educate each patient for improved dental health. I am compassionate and take pride in being very gentle and yet thorough. My goal is to make every patient feel comfortable and have a great experience at our office. Laser Dental Associates is the place to go for all your dental needs. We are committed to taking care of you!
