Meet The Team


Dental Hygienst

I started my dental career in 1998 as a dental assistant with Dr. Peurach. I graduated from hygiene school in 2005 from Kellogg Community College. In college I served as a class officer and enjoyed participating in community outreach programs. I like to positively impact people's lives and help improve their oral health.

Outside of work, I enjoy outdoor activities like camping, canoeing, and spending time with her family. I have been married to my husband Mike, since 2002. We have a daughter Josie, and a son Warren.

I moved to the Lake Odessa area when I was 14 years old. I attended Lakewood Public Schools and graduated in 1983. I am married to Wayne Sipperley Jr. and have two children, Lauren and Erik. Always having a passion for dentistry, I decided to attend Kellogg Community College. I enrolled part-time and started taking classes in 2000. I graduated with an Applied Science Degree in Dental Hygiene in May 2005.

I joined this office in January 2009. I am fluent in Spanish, and enjoy meeting interesting new people. I take pride in providing a pleasant, comfortable hygiene appointment.

I enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family. I have enjoyed getting to know my patients in Hastings and the surrounding communities.

Dental Assistant

Hello, My  name is Desiree.  I am a dental assistant.  I have lived in Hastings my whole life and graduated from Hastings High School in 2011.  I've always been interested in dentistry, so I enrolled at Ross Medical and received my dental assisting certification in 2013.

Some things I enjoy doing outside of work include painting, gardening, camping, and spending time with my family and friends.


Dental Assistant

I live in Lake Odessa with my husband Brian and have been a dental assistant for 4 years.  My favorite part of assisting is making patients laugh and helping them feel at ease in the dental chair.  I am proud to be a part of a team whose primary mission is to treat others the way we would like to be treated.  Not all dental offices are created equal and I am happy to be part of a team who delivers high quality affordable dental care.

 I am an animal lover and also love gardening, cooking, crafts and interior design.  And last, but certainly not least, I enjoy being a mom and grandma of two!


Financial Coordinator

I worked in the dental field for over 4 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom.  I lived in Florida for several years, where my daughter was born.  Then we moved to California where my son was born and am now back to "The Mitten" where I grew up.  I am happy to be back near family, enjoying all 4 seasons! 


Scheduling/Financial Coordinator

I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Professions.  My husband, Matt, and I  lived in Colorado for 3 years before moving to Hastings in 2012.  We have two children, David and Aria, who keep us very busy!

I joined the team in the summer of 2016 and am excited to be a part of such a wonderful team.  In my free time I enjoys working with the PATH youth group, and spending time with my family.
