Laura Zapoli - Office Manager
While working for Dr. Hutcheson I went from a twenty something to a grandmother of 3!! I have enjoyed all the friendships I have made over the years with our wonderful staff and patients. I started with Dr. Hutcheson as an assistant and now manage a staff of 9 employees. We are constantly evolving as a dental team and we enjoy offering the latest technology to our patients that the dental field has to offer.

I have been in the dental field for almost 2 years now. I have always wanted to work in the dental field since I was a child. I enjoy working here because I am always learning something new! I am fortunate to have started my career in this office, wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
Sara Hadley - Dental Assistant
I have worked for Dr. Hutcheson since January 2013. I have been a dental assistant since 1999. I have two daughters ages 15 and 12. I like the dental field because I enjoy working with people. I like working at Dr. Hutcheson and Dyras' office because the office uses some of the most innovative technology in the dental field.
I graduated from Lansing Community College's dental hygiene program in May of 2013. I went on to complete my bachelor's in dental hygiene with minors in public health and education from Sienna Heights University. Prior to becoming a dental hygienist, I was a medical assistant and have been doing patient care since 1994. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a patient return to optimal dental health and seeing that smile on their face. When not practicing hygiene, I am a mother of 3 wonderful teenage daughters and enjoy their various activities and family outings.
Heather Hammond-Financial Coordinator
I have worked in the dental field since 2000 and have been involved in many aspects of the field during that time. However, my passion is my current position as financial coordinator. I met my husband at a previous dental employer. My father-in-law likes to say "See, going to the dentist can be a good thing." We have 2 wonderful children and enjoy spending time as a family. I look forward to many more years at our office and hope to make your experience here as pleasant as possible.
