Becky K. — Patient Services Director
I have been with Duneland Dental since May 2005. I enjoy being able to interact with our patients while in the office, as well as welcoming new families to our practice. My overall goal is to make patients feel as comfortable as possible and to answer any and all questions there may be. We also have a variety of juices to choose from that can change at any time, so come in and ask for one today!
Celena O. — Patient Coordinator
I am so happy and excited to be the newest addition to the Duneland Dental family! I have over 25 years of experience in the dental field. My experience ranges from general dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics and oral surgery. I have a wide range of experience in the dental office, from dental assisting to front desk management, treatment coordination, billing and reception. Dental health and patient satisfaction have always been my focuses in my dental career. I enjoy the everyday interaction with patients and meeting new ones. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my two fur babies, Evie and Bullet.
Holly M. — Hygiene Director
I have experience in a variety of dental practices, which include family, pediatric and periodontal services. I am a graduate of Indiana University School of Dentistry, and I believe that good dental health coincides with optimal overall health. Dr. Faron’s knowledge and expertise along with current training and technology provide each patient the opportunity to achieve this goal.
I take great pride in being a gentle hygienist with a calming influence. I am outgoing and enjoy listening to our patients and helping them with their dental needs and goals.
My interests include physical fitness, boating, walks on the beach, golf, and spending time with family and friends. I am also a lifelong Duneland community resident.
Molly M. — Patient Hygiene Advocate
Although I am one of the newer team members at Duneland Dental, I felt an instant bond with the team and patients. I am a graduate of Indiana University of Dentistry with a minor in biology. I continue to attend seminars to further my education and gain more experience.
One of my biggest concerns is how periodontal disease is a major health issue in our country, and I spend a great deal of time instructing my patients in preventive techniques. I aim to make all patients feel comfortable and calm during their cleanings, and I take pride in providing the tools necessary to achieve optimal dental health.
Outside of work, I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking and spending time with my two pooches.
Jennifer G. — Clinical Assistant Director
I have been in the dental assisting field for (let’s just say) a long, long time, after graduating from I.U. Northwest. I still enjoy the challenges of my job, especially calming patients who are apprehensive about having dental work done. I also like the variety involved in working with many different types of people, as well as the many procedures we offer. I always strive to do my best work possible, treating each patient as I would my own family. Our team works together well as a group, trying to have fun while still maintaining a very professional workplace.
