Joy

 

Office Manager

I appreciate meeting new families and building relationships with them. Watching children grow up with healthy smiles, and sharing in the lives, is rewarding. I oversee the day-to-day operations of All Grins 4 Kids, handle human resources, check in patients, and answer the phone. Working in a positive, energetic office where we like to have fun and are surrounded by children’s smiles is the best: I love that we work together to provide great dental care to all.

My family keeps me busy outside of the office. I’m married and have three kids: Reegan, Ellery, and Oliver. I love attending their soccer games and many school events. A lot of our summer hours are spent at the pool,and I’m interested in health and fitness, too.

Kara

Dental Assistant

I am happy my work allows me to help kids. Seeing each patient grow up with a big, healthy smile, and knowing I played a role in that, keeps me smiling. I assist Dr. Cummings with patient care, working chairside during procedures and making sure our patient is at ease. Ours is a friendly and welcoming office, where we care about each other – and our patients – like family.

If I’m not at work, chances are I’m with my loved ones. I have four kids and two dogs. We like to travel to be with family and I love watching my kids play sports.

Kathy

Insurance Coordinator

I like working with and on behalf of our patients’ families, making sure they are able to maximize their insurance benefits. Insurance forms can be confusing, so I help families understand their coverage and file the necessary paperwork on their behalf. Being part of All Grins 4 Kids means working alongside talented, compassionate people who provide the best dental care for our patients.

Outside of work, I love cats, chocolate, and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Kauri

Dental Hygienist

I enjoy building positive relationships with my patients and providing quality care to each. It feels good to see children grow up with a strong smile, and know they know how to keep it healthy because of the care we’ve provided. I offer painless dental prophylaxis (cleanings). I also teach patients and parents about proper oral hygiene, nutrition, and developing healthy habits. The best part of working with Dr. K. and this team is being in a positive and uplifting environment, where we all do our best for our patient family.

I love spending my free time with my boyfriend and our Husky, Titus. I enjoy hiking, many outdoor activities, and going out to movies.

Lisa

Treatment Coordinator

I love seeing the kids proud of themselves after they finish a procedure; sometimes I even get hugs! Our patients grow into young adults with great smiles and they graduate knowing that taking care of their oral health is important. I present and explain treatment plans to parents, schedule hospital procedures, collect payments, and process insurance. All Grins 4 Kids is an amazing practice: everyone is kind, gentle, and devoted to the patient experience.

I have many interests and hobbies outside of work. I love old cars and motorcycles, flower arranging and home remodeling, and singing karaoke. I’m also known as the Coupon Queen! Most of all, I love time with my three grown children and one grandchild.
