Tina Norheim, Patient Care Coordinator

I'm so fortunate to have stumbled onto such a wonderful profession.
I've always been a people person and I guess that's one reason why dentistry is so incredibly fun. I love our patients, staff, and I love working for my husband. I can honestly say he is the kindest person I have ever worked for. I love his dedication to our patients and to his profession and I'm so glad to be a part of it all. We're just like one big happy family.




Jennifer R, Thornton, RDH, RDA

I started out in dentistry as an assistant. I have worked with Periodontist, Pediodontist,Cosmetic and General Dentists. Knowing that I wanted to bring my education to a higher level I chose Dental Hygiene. It's an amazing profession where we now understand more on how to treat many diseases that are related to oral health. I feel so at home working with such a great team of professionals.





Shirley Thompson, RDA

Iíve been a dental assistant sense 1973 . Dentistry has changed a lot since I started working in this profession. Iíve worked with many doctors over the years as well as taught assisting at the University of Indiana. I am so proud to work with Dr. Norheim. I have never seen him once compromise his ethics to a patient in the 20+ years I have worked for him. He is a perfectionist when it comes to his work and I am proud to be a part of his dedication to our patients. I love each and every one of them.
