Our hygiene team will welcome you to our practice with a smile!

Kris, Cathy, Sue and Kimi have been working at our office for more than 20 years combined and have helped hundreds of patients maintain their dental health. Our hygienists are excellent communicators which will allow you to comfortably ask questions and then clearly understand the answers. Their gentle, thorough and helpful styles will allow you to relax and feel at home during your cleaning and examination appointments.

Kris is our longest serving team member, joining us in 1996. She graduated from Lansing Community College where she earned her Dental hygiene license. Kris, her husband Bob and kids, Emily and Craig, live in Suttons Bay. "I love working so close to home and meeting people both from the area and visitors."


After meeting as students in Ann Arbor Cathy and Dr. Holcombe were married. Cathy worked as the practice's first hygienist here in Suttons Bay. They have two grown children, Kelly and Alan. Cathy volunteers with several area organizations and also works as a CPA when she isn't helping with the hygiene at our practice. "Suttons Bay is fantastic and I enjoy meeting new patients at our office."


Before moving to Leelanau County Sue practiced dental hygiene in Kalamazoo and joined our team in 2001. She is married to her husband David and enjoys time with her family. Sue is very dedicated to her job and it is a point of pride for her to show people the best way to keep their mouths healthy. "It is hard to believe, but many people have just never been told how to brush and floss the right way!"


Kimi joined our dental team in 1997 and is recently licensed in nitrous oxide administration. She calls Leelanau County home and has two children, Olivia and Jack. "Like everyone here I am very conscious of patient comfort and at the same time I work hard to do a perfect job with dental cleanings."
