About the Dental Impressions Team

Meet Stephanie

Stephanie graduated from Des Moines Area Community College in 2001 and joined our team in 2017 as a registered dental assistant. Stephanie obtained her expanded functions certification and regularly performs dental hygiene demonstrations at local elementary schools. She loves the opportunity to meet new people and help her patients smile and looks forward to learning about her patients and their families. Outside of the office, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and daughter, watching Hawkeye games, and hanging out with her friends, family, and neighbors. Her favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast, and she loves the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Meet Elizabeth

Elizabeth joined our team in 2020, and graduated from Vatterott College with her Registered Dental Assistant degree in 2012. She’s since completed special certifications in CPR. Elizabeth worked in public health for over five years, and also does charity work through her church whenever possible. She loves working with our team, and looks forward to getting to know each of our patients and having a good laugh with them. When not in the office, Elizabeth likes canvas painting, scrapbooking, hanging out with her five kids, playing ping pong, and card games!

Meet Melissa

Melissa graduated in 1988 and joined our front office team in 2020. She’s also earned certifications as a medication aide. She loves everything about her job, and enjoys working with patients and helping them on their journey to a healthier smile. When not in the office, she volunteers her time with Panora Pets, a no-kill shelter. Her hobbies include chalk painting, as well as remodeling and renovating older things.
