Caroline-portrait-1

Caroline

Receptionist

Our newest member of the staff joined us in June 2017. She studied Liberal Arts while attending college in Wisconsin, and just recently moved to Minnetonka. Caroline was born into a dental family, which is what sparked her interest in dentistry at such a young age. Her father owned his own dental practice, and was a dentist for over 30 years. She grew up watching her mother at the front desk of their family practice, and was fascinated by how her mother formed relationships with every patient that walked through their doors. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Caroline wants to make a positive impact on every patient that walks into Nicollet Station Dental. She gained many years of dental knowledge working for her parents, and knows how important it is to feel comfortable and confident with your dental team. Caroline loves spending time with her family and friends, traveling to as many of the 50 states she’s drawn to, cooking new dishes, and discovering the wide variety of restaurants the Twin Cities have to offer.
