Jamie, our office manager smiling

Office Manager

After graduating from college in 2011, Jamie pursued a career in dentistry, being drawn to the incredible transformations that dental work can have on a patient’s smile, especially those who were previously self-conscious.

Jamie’s favorite part of working at Dillingham Hanson is the opportunity to interact with our patients, getting to know each one and helping them achieve their dental goals. Jamie’s outgoing personality adds great value to the office, particularly in terms of marketing and creating a fun and engaging environment.

Outside of work, Jamie enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her energetic puppy, Chief. She also loves hunting, crafting, attending concerts, and has a desire to rescue a senior dog, having already rescued several puppies.

Dental Hygienist

Kimberly grew up in Rochester Hills, MI, with her two older brothers. She is the proud mother of a teenage son.

Her journey into dentistry began when she was just three years old! She was a regular at the dentist’s office due to several cavities. Her positive dental experience, thanks to her fabulous childhood dentist, sparked her interest in dentistry as a career choice. She completed Dental Hygiene School at Ferris State.

Kimberly is known for her kindness and is always willing to help anyone in need. As a true advocate for her patients, Kimberly makes sure they feel comfortable and fully informed at all times. Her love for her patients can only be matched by her love for her fellow team members.

One of Kimberly’s heroes is her grandfather. He was a WWII veteran, a kind man, and a dedicated grandfather. Thanks to him, Kimberly learned all sorts of traits and skills – she was able to use these to rebuild her kitchen all on her own (wow!).

For Sherry, dentistry appeared in her life unexpectedly, but it is something she truly enjoys.

Every day she treasures her professional role because it allows her to improve people’s smiles and overall dental health. Sherry is a great team player in our office and is loved by everyone who works with her.

In her spare time, Sherry enjoys helping people redecorate their home and believes laughter is the best medicine.

Shelly, our dental hygienist, smiling

Dental Hygienist

Shelly is a Michigan native, having been born and raised in the state. She has three sisters, one brother, a son named Brett, a daughter named Olivia, and a son-in-law named Robert. Furthermore, she is eagerly anticipating the arrival of her grandchild in August 2023. Shelly and her partner Rich have a wonderful dog named Amber.

As a child, Shelly’s family dentist encouraged her to consider a career in dentistry. She subsequently began working for him as an assistant and went on to spend most of her career as a hygienist. Shelly finds the people aspect of her job to be the most rewarding, as she enjoys interacting with others and helping them achieve optimal dental health.

Shelly’s go-getter personality and boundless energy add immense value to the office. She is an excellent organizer and teacher, and she always strives to give her best effort each day. Outside of work, Shelly loves to ride her Harley Davidson (a soft-tail delux CVO for Harley enthusiasts). She also enjoys horseback riding, long walks with her dog Amber, and travelling with Rich, with Montana being their next destination. One item on her bucket list is to do a cattle drive on horseback across a state such as Wyoming.
