Shannon

Shannon

Front Office Manager

I love that Eden Prairie Dental Care is a patient-centered and family-oriented office. Our patients love the friendliness and warmth of our team, and I love getting to know each patient on a personal level. I welcome and check in patients, answer our phones, schedule visits, and handle recalls. I also make sure our daily schedule is full and flows well, and update the schedules in the operatories. Other tasks include billing, insurance, and collections, and I maintain our office inventory and equipment, too. I’m busy, but never too busy for a chat to hear the latest news!

My husband Bob and I married in 2002. We have two sons, Braylen and McKale. With two active boys, I spend my free-time as a chef, maid, nurse, and chauffer! If I do manage to find some leftover time, I like to read and knit.


Lori

Lori

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy my patients and the conversations we have during their visits. Not only do we share stories and laugh together, but learning about their life gives me insight into how I can help them with their oral hygiene needs. I spend my days providing patient care, cleaning teeth and performing root planing and scaling, applying fluoride treatments and sealants, and administering anesthesia. I also maintain our supplies and equipment and make bleaching trays. My most important work, though, is educating each patient about their unique dental hygiene and how to keep their mouth and smile healthy.

My husband’s name is Eric and I have two adult children, Zack and Haley. When I’m not working, I enjoy running, taking my lovely dog, Coz, for long walks, and bowling and traveling.


Katie

Katie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love getting to know and building long term relationships with our patients and families. Helping each person develop optimal dental health and making sure they enjoy coming to visit us, is my passion. While I clean a patient’s teeth, take dental X-rays, and perform scaling and root planing, I talk with the person about their oral hygiene. By explaining the connection between a healthy mouth and body, and giving the person the tools to keep their mouth in great shape, I’m making a difference in their life. When a patient comes for a recall visit and I see they’ve made positive changes in their habits that are reflected in their smile, I’m thrilled.

I share my life with my husband, Chris, and two children, Isabella and Sophia. We also have two Miniature Schnauzers, Rocco and Ruby. I enjoy time with family and friends. I also enjoy cooking, and love gardening, running, rollerblading, and skiing. I volunteer with Operation Christmas Child / Samaritan’s Purse, Feed My Starving Children, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and St. Jude’s.


Julie

Julie

Dental Assistant

I love seeing happy, healthy smiles on my patients as they arrive for their visits. Each person has unique needs and concerns, and we work with them to address those on an individual level. I provide chairside assistance during dental procedures, supporting Dr. Dickey and our patient. I tell our patient what we’re doing and how much progress we’re making, and ensure they’re relaxed and comfortable. I also clean and maintain our lab, operatories, and equipment, and maintain our dental inventory, as well as order dental and hygiene supplies.

My family is my priority outside of work. My husband’s name is Ted, and I have four children: Anthony, Emily, Bethany, and Nick. I’m a hockey mom, who loves camping, hiking, boating, and travel. I volunteer with Feed My Starving Children and Sharing and Caring Hands, too.


Wendy

Wendy

Dental Assistant

I enjoy spending my days working with our wonderful patients, and being part of a team that is strongly committed to providing the highest level of care. Improving a person’s dental health and giving them a confident smile is incredibly rewarding, and I love being part of making that happen. I assist Dr. Dickey as he cares for our patients. I make sure he has everything he needs, but focus on our patient’s comfort, keeping them updated and providing encouragement. My other duties include sanitizing the operatories, lab, and our equipment, tracking our inventory, and ordering supplies.

My husband Jay and I have been married for almost 20 years. We have two children, Wyatt and Jonathan, along with our Golden Retriever, Max. I enjoy trail riding and camping with my friends, and caring for my three horses: Zarah, Brass, and Beezie. I also like four-wheeling and camping trips with Jay and the boys. I volunteer at the Cannon Valley Saddle Club and with the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at the kids’ school.


Linda

Marketing Manager

I love promoting our family-friendly dental practice in our community. I know we provide the best care available, from each of our wonderful team members through Dr. Dickey (who just happens to be my husband). I work behind the scenes in our practice, handling advertising, promotions, and communications. My background is as a Senior Clinical Marketing Specialist in the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical industries; it’s a joy to bring that experience to a family business that helps our community.

In my spare time, I’m often found cheering for my kids from the sidelines and volunteering in the Minnetonka schools. I’m a long-time member of both a book and gourmet club, and love each of them. I also enjoy traveling, cross-country skiing, and playing tennis. My favorite times, though, are spent with family and friends.
