Meet the Team
Registered dental hygienist, expanded functions dental assistant (EFDA), and sleep assistant
Lisa has loved dentistry and immersed herself and everything dental since she began her career as Dr. Snyders dental assistant in 2001. Since then, she followed her heart and pursued a dental hygiene degree, expanded functions degree, and has extensive training in sleep apnea. Lisa is often referred to as Dr. Snyders “dental practitioner”. She truly enjoys helping patients reach their best overall health whether it’s gum health, dental health, or proper airway function. Lisa’s love for people, education, art, and health is evident in her work.
When being treated by Lisa, you are likely to enjoy a good laugh, as well as have someone who is willing to listen, teach, and hold your hand.
When Lisa isn’t immersed in all things dental, she enjoys spending time with family and friends exploring nature, enjoying a water activity, and snuggling on the couch watching a good movie.
Teresa is the newest member of our team, she joined us in July of 2020 but started her career as a dental assistant in 2005. She enjoys helping and interacting with patients and has a gentle and compassionate chairside manner. She prides herself in anticipating everything the doctor/EFDA will need. She is talented and a great addition and we are thrilled to have her. In Teresa’s time off she enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. Her hobbies include kayaking, fishing, crafting, and anything outdoors.
Jocelyn has been in the dental world for many years. She is a cheerful charming face at the front desk where she will answer the phones, schedule treatment, review finances, and takes strolls with our lovely therapy dog Lela.

She also likes cooking, making candles, and watching a good movie.

Lela is a fantastic lap cuddler and heart warmer. She came to us in January 2018 after being abandoned by her family (probably for being too cute!) She is a Yorkie Chihuahua mix weighing in at 7.5 lbs. She has a way of letting you forget your troubles when she flips over for a belly rub, cocks her head to listen to you intently or curl up on your lap for some love.
