What is a hygienist?

Dental hygienists are licensed oral health professionals who focus on preventing and treating oral diseases-both to protect teeth and gums, and also to protect patients' total health. They are graduates of accredited dental hygiene education programs in colleges and universities, and must take a written national board examination and a clinical examination before they are licensed to practice.

Kathy has worked for MIDA for over twenty five years as an assistant to Dr. John. Twelve years ago she moved to the front desk to help our former receptionist Jeaneen Smith.


Stacie Spendel is our insurance coordinator. She is versed in all aspects of dental claims and works with the patients and dentists to maximize our patients’ insurance benefits. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence.

Dental assistants

The dental assistants are the front line troops of our office. They all work right next to the dentist providing direct care to the patients. They take x-rays, pour models, and all the other typical assistant duties. In addition, they comfort the nervous patient or wipe the runny nose of the child before the dentist arrives. They make everyone's dental visit more comfortable. Pictured from left to right Mindy Larimore, Kali Badman, Barb Coughlin.


Our two hygienists round out our dental team. They are instrumental in maintaining our patient's oral health. They work closely with the dentists to assure total patient health and satisfaction. They use continuing education to keep attuned to what is going on in dentistry so that our patients will receive the best and most up to date care.
