Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi my name is Carrie, and I’m one of the hygienists at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry. I graduated from Ferris State University in 2001, I’ve been a hygienist for 16 years and I love every minute of it!
I started working for Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry in 2013. I enjoy the quality time spent educating my patients about their oral hygiene needs, and my favorite part of my job is developing a long lasting relationship with my patients.
The ability to help my patients achieve maximum oral health, excellent results, and their positive feedback gives me great pride in my work.
I’m blessed with the opportunity to work with an awesome dentist and fantastic coworkers here at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry, it has been a very rewarding experience.
I spend my time off with my husband and three children (14, 12, and 10 years old). If I’m not at the office you can find me traveling all over the state taking my children to their travel sporting events.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Mary! I've been a hygienist for 12 years, and have been practicing with Dr. Jenicke since April 2012.
I enjoy educating our patients by explaining dental conditions and dental procedures. Taking that little extra time to educate our patients really helps them gain a better understanding of the overall health of their mouth.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, singing with my church band, gardening, cooking, baking, and traveling.
I also love having such great co-workers and an amazing boss! I can truly say I love my job!
Hello, my name is Shalyn, I’m one of the Dental Assistants at Brilliant Smiles Family dentistry. From my first day, I knew I made the right choice joining this team and feel blessed to be here. I couldn’t imagine a better or more positive working environment.
I graduated in 2013 from Ross Medical Education Center in Grand Rapids, and I’ve been working in the dental field ever since. My favorite part about working in dentistry is that every day there is a new experience and another opportunity to ensure that our patients feel comfortable and leave happy.
I live in Reed City on a small lake with my boyfriend, Trevor, and our two spoiled rotten fur babies, Capone and Hurricane. In my spare time, I love having the family over for cookouts and just relaxing on the pontoon boat.
Hi, my name is Missy!
I’m a Certified Dental Assistant at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry. I first joined Dr. Jenicke and her team back in 2015, but due to unforeseen circumstances; I left the dental field about a year later. At the beginning of this year, I was fortunate enough to be invited back to join her rock star team again! I have been assisting for almost 18 years; I’ve worked in Petoskey, Lake City and now Cadillac. I love assisting for all patients, but my favorites are always children. Every year, since 2004, I have been going to many of the schools in our local and surrounding communities to talk to the kids about the importance of dental health.
I live in Lake City with my husband, Andy, and our spunky, adorable, crazy 8 year old daughter, Andrea. She is truly the light of my life. In our spare time, we enjoy seeing new movies, shopping, and traveling to new places together.
My experience working with Dr. Jenicke has been a really positive one. She is by far one of the most generous, caring, beautiful people that I know inside and out. Her patients and staff love her because she takes the time to listen to each individuals needs and addresses their concerns. If you’re looking for a great office that makes you feel like family, look no further, hope to see you soon!
Hi there! My name is Nicole, and I’m the office manager at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry.
I’m passionate about being a patient advocate. I take great pride in making sure our office runs smoothly and efficiently with patient care being of the utmost importance. I’m always happy to answer your questions regarding your account and/or insurance benefits. I find it rewarding to calm fears, answer questions, and help make treatment possible. There’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patients face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment, to come out the other end with an even bigger better smile! It's important to me to make sure our patients are able to receive the excellent quality dentistry they need and deserve.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two grandsons. I also love being outdoors, caring for my horses, and traveling.
