Meet The Team
  • Overcoming obstacles for her patients, be it understanding dental insurance, assisting with financial solutions, or simply working around a patient’s busy schedule, is her favorite part of her job. She enjoys dentistry’s challenges and the opportunity to learn something new every day! She and her husband are both K-State alumni and love attending sporting events and traveling. Their 13-pound guard dog named Espe keeps them safe from all the neighborhood squirrels and rabbits. They enjoy spending time with their big families and trying new restaurants near and far. She can’t wait to welcome you to Paola Family Dentistry!

  • Being new to the area, she has really enjoyed getting to know the patients better and integrating into the community. She and her husband love taking their boat to the lake with their dog Cooper. She also enjoys scrapbooking in her spare time. The best scrapbook she ever made is of the four years she lived in California, living there was almost like a vacation. They are expecting their first child in November and they are so excited! She looks forward to learning more about dentistry and what she can do to help you achieve dental health.

  • Helping patients establish value and pride in their smiles is a very rewarding career, and she enjoys being able to inspire great confidence in her patients. She has been a Dental Hygienist for 10 years, and she is very passionate about her career. She is from Greeley where she lives with her husband Mark and their young son, Henry. She enjoys spending time with her family, Kansas State athletics, home improvement projects and working on her home landscaping. It has been a wonderful transition for her since becoming a member of the team at Paola Family Dentistry, and she is thrilled to be a part of the family here. Let’s make you a part of this family too!

  • Being a hygienist is very gratifying for Carissa, especially here at Paola Family Dentistry, where she is able to provide her patients care in a calm and caring atmosphere in which their comfort and well-being is the main concern. She has been a hygienist for over 7 years and she loves being a part of the Paola Family Dentistry team. She and her husband are both locals and they recently moved back to the area. She is so thankful to be able to provide her oral healthcare expertise to her own community!  When she’s not cleaning teeth, she spends most of her free time helping raise their 1-year old daughter, Hayden. When they are not chasing her around or working on projects at their home they love spending time at the lake and with their family and friends. Carissa invites you to come find out what extra amenities we have to offer at Paola Family Dentistry!

  • Bailey and her family are new to the Paola area, having recently moved here with her husband and one year old daughter. After attending Vatterott College in Springfield, MO and completing the dental assisting program, Bailey has diligently continued her education to become an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. Staying up to date with the latest technology in the dental field helps Bailey give the best possible care to her patients. She enjoys cake decorating and traveling her with family, especially to her favorite spot in Destin, FL. Bailey can’t wait to welcome you to PFD and get to know you with her outgoing personality!
