Hi! My family and I have recently relocated from College Station, TX to Springfield for my husband to pursue his career with Tyson Foods. I have been in the dental field since 2007 as a dental assistant, front office staff, orthodontic assistant, and treatment coordinator. I joined the Lifestyle Dental team as the Insurance and Financial Coordinator working with all of the insurance companies and with the patients and their finances to make your dental work possible! I have one daughter, Mackenzie, born in 2012, and look forward to meeting and working with you!

Hello, everybody!!! I have been with Dr. Schmidly since 2007 as one of his hygienists. I graduated in 2002 from MSSU in Joplin, but have been in dentistry for 30 years. I have a wonderful husband, Mike. Together we have 2 children who are grown, and have been blessed with a beautiful grand-daughter. My absolutely favorite moments are spending time with my family and enjoying the lake.

I love my job and our first priority is to make our patients comfortable and know that they are receiving the highest quality care. Working in this office has been such a great experience!

Hi! I’m Dr. Schmidly’s wife. We met when I was in the dental hygiene program at MSSC and got married in 1985. We have 2 beautiful children who are now all grown up.

I have been a hygienist for 31 years. Our patients are our first priority. We want to make them feel comfortable and confident in knowing that they are receiving the best quality dental care available. Dr. Schmidly and I are so proud of our team and can be confident in knowing that they will always deliver optimal care.  We look forward to taking care of you!

I'm happily married to my husband, Scott and we have a wonderful daughter, Katie. We are into sports and I LOVE being a sports mom. I am happiest spending time with my family and friends watching baseball/softball games and shopping for the next "big bargain!" I have been working as an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant since January of 2000 and received my certifications from OTC. I joined Dr. Schmidly and his awesome team in March of 2009. I absolutely LOVE working at Lifestyle Dental! It is such a warm and friendly environment filled with lots of fun and laughter, and our team truly cares about the patients! We really think of them as our extended family!

After working in the dental field all of my adult life, I was excited to join Dr. Schmidly and the Lifestyle Dental Team in January 2012. Outside of the practice, my husband and I enjoy the lakes, riding motorcycles, but mostly spending time with our grand-daughters. I look forward to being a part of a team that provides exceptional dental care in a family setting.
