Meet Our Friendly Staff

Michelle Ringler

Administrative Assistant

I have enjoyed working in the dental field since graduating from College of the Redwoods more than thirty years ago.

I make every effort to treat anyone who walks into the office with warmth and the highest respect.

My husband and I keep busy with family activities and church ministry. I have enjoyed getting to know many great patients and look forward to meeting many more!

Mara Schueneman

Financial Coordinator

I am happy to assist and support patients with 20 years of knowledge and experience with insurance companies, treatment planning and scheduling.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my Frenchie "Penny" and my grandsons. I enjoy working with my dental team to provide patients with the best dental care.

Michele Johnson

ADHP(Advanced Dental Hygiene Practitioner)

Hello! I am Michele Johnson, RDHAP, and would love to meet you! I enjoy people in general, and have been in practice for 12 years. I still love what I do.

My goal is to bring a diseased mouth back to a state of health, which positively affects the rest of your body. I use ultrasonics, hand instrumentation, loupes and education to do this.

I am a native to Humboldt county, and love this land. I am also a grandmother to six, a wife, mother and daughter. when I am not busy in the office, I love to cook, visit with my family and play with my three dogs.

Heather Lewis

Registered Dental Assistant

I graduated from the dental assistant program at College of the Redwoods in 2013. What I enjoy most about my job is bringing back peoples' smiles and confidence. My aim is to make every patient feel welcome as soon as they walk through our doors, as well as leave with a great experience.

I value time spent with my family, especially when we go to church every week or visit my niece and nephew.
