Jill was raised in Spencer, Iowa where, in her first job as a dental assistant, she discovered her love of the dental field. Jill attended Des Moines Area Community College and immediately became the first dental hygienist hired by our young practice in 1990. Jill is married with three daughters and recently sent the first off to college. Jill feels fortunate to be working in the same practice for many years. She has seen families grow, children complete an education, careers launch, retirements begin and she finds gratitude in the continuity of their relationships.
Karen earned her BS in Dental Hygiene from the University of Iowa and has been with Berkshire Dental since 2003. Karen and her husband, David, have a son and daughter, both at Iowa State University. Karen simply can't sit still, training and competing in triathlons, running and cycling events. Since 1996 she has been an adjunct instructor at DMACC. She enjoys working for Berkshire Dental because of its prevention-based philosophy, understanding that a patient's dental health can be a reflection of overall health.
Jeni joined us in 2009 after completing her education at Des Moines Area Community College. She has two sons who keeps her extremely busy. Along with being a mom, Jeni is involved in anything active, healthy and outdoors. Her approach to dental hygiene education is refreshing and our patient care is enhanced with her contributions.
Julie graduated from DMACC in Dental Hygiene in 1990 and couldn't see herself doing anything else. She is married and has 3 children. She enjoys cheering on her kids who are been involved in cross-country, football, basketball and baseball. She also likes spending time in her flower and vegetable gardens. She is so excited to join the experienced Berkshire dental team and continue to give patients the best care possible.
