Brittany, Business Coordinator
Hi! I’m Brittany and I’ll greet you with a smile at the front desk here at Sage Brush Dental Health! My start in dentistry was in 2017 as a dental assistant. I now love getting to see every patients’ beautiful smile when they check in and out of our practice. In my spare time, I like to read and spend time with my three kids and three dogs. When it is warm, we love adventures to the lake and going on hikes.

Staci, Registered Dental Hygienist
I have spent nearly 20 years working in the dental field. My first job out of high school was as an assistant for a dentist in Hutchinson. I worked for him for 8 years until he decided to retire. My doctor then encouraged me to continue my education and become a dental hygienist. I took his advice and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Wichita State University in 2015. I love my job and I am very passionate about the dental field. There is no better feeling than having my patients walk out of our office with a smile on their face. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my son, Kohen, family and friends. We are all very outdoorsy and spend about every moment we can making memories camping, fishing and boating. I also enjoy golfing, hunting and I have been bowling in league since I was 3 years old. I would love to welcome any new patients to Sage Brush Dental Health and help with all your dental needs.
