Heather

Heather

Office Manager

I have worked in the dental field since 2000 and have been involved in many aspects of the field during that time. I started working for Dyras Dental in 2014 as the financial coordinator and then became the office manager in 2021. I enjoy seeing the many generations of families we have in our practice. I look forward to many more years at our office and hope to make your experience here as pleasant as possible.

I met my husband at a previous dental employer. My father-in-law liked to say, "See, going to the dentist can be a good thing!" We have two children and two wonderful grandchildren. We enjoy kayaking and spending time as a family.

 

Gabriella

Financial Coordinator

I started my journey in healthcare back in 2014, where I quickly found my passion for helping people. My previous job introduced me to the intricate world of dental billing, and I will forever be thankful for the knowledge as it has led me to my position here as financial coordinator. I am excited for my future here at our office, and to broaden my experience in the dental field.

I am currently engaged to my high school boyfriend, and we have a beautiful baby boy together. My finance' and I both grew up in the small city of Grand Ledge and are looking forward to building a happy life there with our little family.

 

Tiana

Scheduling Coordinator

I have been in the medical front office administration since 2016. I am a newbie to the exciting world of dentistry. I love to provide patient education as much as I can, which is why learning all there is to know about healthy dental care is very important to me. I truly enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life and making every patient feel important when they call or come into the office. I am happy to be a part of this dental family.

I am newly married. We share two growing boys and a miniature pinscher. I love resin crafting, DIY home projects and cooking for my family.

Amanda

Dental Assistant

I have been at Dyras Dental since 2012. I enjoy working in the dental field and making our patients feel safe and comfortable during every visit. The best part of my job is seeing the look on a patient’s face when we have changed their smile! I also love working with this team. We are more like a family, in my opinion! Working here has made me a better person, both personally and professionally.

I am married to my high-school sweetheart and we have two amazing daughters, Skylar and Saydee. I absolutely adore our two Dachshunds, Gizmo and Sheldon. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, and doing projects around the house.

Nicole

Lead Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for more than 25 years, most of which I’ve spent right here! I have enjoyed working with Dr. Dyras and our experienced team for many years. We work well with each other on a professional level, but the friendships I have made with everyone over the years have been one of the greatest things about my job. Of course, I also enjoy seeing our patients happy and confident with their new smiles.

I grew up in the Upper Peninsula and moved to the Lansing area after attending college in California. I have wonderful twin daughters who are attending LCC and a Shih Tzu named Lucy. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, camping, and spending time with my family.

Dentistry entered my life in 2014 and I joined Dyras Dental in 2018. My job keeps me on my toes with something new every day, from the people to new experiences and learning new things. I always look forward to what the future holds!

Dental Hygienist

I began my career as a dental assistant in 2010 and continued my education to become a dental hygienist. I joined Dyras Dental in 2017 and feel so fortunate to work with such an amazing, encouraging group of people. Patient care is my number-one priority; I love giving people a positive dental experience!

My husband and I live in Swartz Creek with our two cats. My hobbies include painting, reading, and gardening.

 
Christa

Christa

Lead Hygienist

I graduated from Lansing Community College’s dental hygiene program in May 2013. I went on to complete my bachelor’s in dental hygiene with minors in public health and education from Siena Heights University. In 2015, I found my forever home, which shortly thereafter became Dyras Dental! I absolutely love patient education. I am a firm believer in the fact that you cannot fix things or change habits unless you understand why you are doing it. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a patient return to optimal dental health and seeing that smile on their face. 

I am newly married to a wonderful husband. I have three amazing grown daughters who have brought me three great sons. I have a German Shepherd who just loves to go on walks, ride in the car, and go camping and swimming. And last but not least, I have a new granddaughter who makes my heart absolutely ecstatic.

I enjoy working with a wide variety of patients and building relationships with the patients and team, in addition to learning about new advancements and technologies in the dental field.

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, and my animals.
