Assistant Team

Whether you are here for fillings, tooth replacement or whitening your smile, our assisting team is here to make sure your visit is as enjoyable and pain free as possible.  


I became Certified and Registered Dental Assistant in 1995. I have worked exclusively with Dr. Haganman since 1998 and have attended many continuing education classes on esthetic dentistry and denture implants.  I really enjoy working with patients and getting to know them.  It is so interesting to follow their case from beginning to end to see the great final result. We have terrific doctors and a state-of-the-art practice with the latest technology.

I have 3 children and spend my free time chasing them around.  I like spending time with family and friends and doing anything outdoors.

I have been a part of The Dental Center team since May 2008, but working as an assistant since 2001.  I graduated from Kirkwood Community College's Dental Assisting Program in 2001 and continued training in expanded functions to give patients top-notch care.  The Dental Center is a great place to work. I enjoy building long-lasting personal relationships with patients and hope to make their dental visits an enjoyable experience. The dentists at The Dental Center are so wonderful to work for and the care they give patients is amazing.


Ever since I was little I knew that I wanted to work in the dental field.  I am proud to say that I work at The Dental Center.  We have a great staff and keep up on the latest technology.  I studied Dental Assisting and Dental Hygiene at Kirkwood Community College and graduated in 2008.

I've been with The Dental Center for over a year now and truly enjoy everything this practice offers. I work with  great staff and, most of all, amazing patients. I am very grateful for the experiences I have each day.

Even though I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, I'm still not a winter person! In my free time, my boyfriend Chris and I love spending as much time as possible with his kids, our two dogs, family and friends. I enjoy live music, traveling to new places and Netflix binge watching!
