Meet our Friendly Dental Experts

Michele, Practice Manager

Michele brings more than twenty years of experience to our team. Beginning her career as a dental hygienist, Michele graduated from Wichita State University with a BS in Dental Hygiene and Health Science. She practiced dental hygiene for many years. Following dental hygiene she had the opportunity to work as a dental consultant, where she served as a management consultant for dentists. Most recently she plays the role of a specialist at helping people navigate their scheduling and insurance needs. She also works as a liaison for doctor and patient communication. In Michele’s free time she enjoys spending time with her 3 sons and being active in her church.

Susan, Registered Dental Hygienist

 Susan has been a member of the Dentistry by Design team for over 15 years, and she cherishes the relationships she’s developed with her patients over the years. Susan earned her bachelor of science in dental hygiene at the Baylor College of Dentistry. She is licensed by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners, and she maintains the CPR certification and continuing education hours necessary to renew her licensure annually. That means she stays at the forefront of the field, and she brings that knowledge back to our patients. Susan is married, and she and her husband have two children. In her spare time, Susan enjoys volunteering in her community and traveling with her family. Despite her dedication to oral hygiene, you might just catch Susan sneaking one of her favorite treats – sugary hard candies!

Outside of work, Laura is happily married, and she is the proud mother of three daughters, Abby, Tori, and Ella, and a son, Joseph.
