Wendy, Office Manager/DA

Wendy Photo Hey there! I started as a dental assistant in 2011, moved to be a receptionist with Dr. Grein in 2013 and am now the Practice Administrator here. I love everything dental, which means, I must be involved in a local dental organization; I am involved in the local AADOM chapter (American Association of Dental Office Management) for West Central MI, I am the secretary, and enjoy every seminar I attend. Ask me any question dental related and I will help you toward the answer.

P.S. I love insurance, if you need help understanding yours, Iím your gal.

Lucy, RDH

Lucy Photo I graduated from the University of Michigan, school of Dental Hygiene with a BS degree, and married Dan Reeves in 1968. I started working for Dr. Grein in 1980. So many years of working in one dental office has made it possible to meet hundreds of people and making many friends along the way. Being a dental hygienist for Dr. Grein has been a rewarding and enriching experience.

Dan and I have a son, Mark, a Clinical psychologist who lives in Tallahassee FL, with his wife and three daughters. Thatís been a yearly vacation spot since 1999.

I have worked for Dr. Grein since October 1980. I work in the practice 2 days per week. Over those 37 years, great patient relationships and friendships have developed and grown. Throughout my dental hygiene career, it has always been, and will continue to be my goal to give my patients optimal dentalcare and dental education in a great environment.

Through the years I've had two children (Jourdan and Tony). I've really enjoyed our patients, and watching their own families grow and expand.
