You can relax knowing that our friendly, competent dental team members are dedicated to making your visit a positive experience. In addition to their formal dental education, our Canton dental team also participates in ongoing training to ensure they are equipped to provide the highest quality patient care available.
From our front office staff to our dental hygienists and dental assistants, our dental team members are carefully chosen for their capabilities and commitment to providing high quality care.
Michelle, RDH, Dental Hygienist
Michelle recently returned to the office after a 20 year break, during which time she raised her two sons who are now in high school and college. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Dental Hygiene from West Liberty University and many of our longtime patients remember when she was first with us after graduating!
Her responsibilities include overseeing our hygiene program and working with our outreach efforts and business-to-business programs. Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her boys, setting new goals in fitness activities and training her new puppy.
Mary, Front Office Coordinator
Mary will often be the first friendly smile you see when visiting our office. She is responsible for helping our patients navigate medical insurance, as well as working with some of our outreach programs.
She is a graduate of The Shipley School and Skidmore College, earning her degrees in Dance and Anthropology, along with her degree in Dental Hygiene. Mary has had a lifelong love of dentistry, as she grew up in a family of dentists and worked as a dental hygienist for over ten years before raising her children.
She also has a passion for ballet as a former professional dancer and teacher. She is the proud mother of two teenage daughters who also share her love of dance. Outside of the office, she enjoys acting, fitness and Roman history.
Cait, Front Office Coordinator
Cait is one of the first friendly faces you see when you visit our office. She has years of dental front desk experience and brings that expertise to our practice. In addition to scheduling, she is responsible for helping our patients navigate dental insurance questions and arranging payment options for extensive treatment plans.
When she's not at work, Cait loves to travel with her husband, visit wineries and spend time with family.
Erin, Dental Assistant
Erin is a dental assistant who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Health Studies (with a minor in Healthcare Ethics) from Kent State University. During her undergraduate studies, she discovered a real interest in the dental field, and is currently studying at Tri-C with plans to go to dental hygiene school. In her current position, she assists Dr. Danner with all patients and procedures, and occasionally assists in our hygiene department. When asked about her favorite part of dental assisting she said “I love it all!”
At the office, Erin is considered a “techxpert” and we rely on her technical/computer skills to help out in all departments. This can be something as simple as setting up a music playlist in the reception area to troubleshooting an equipment repair for clinical procedures.
Outside of the office, Erin has varied interests: she is a Fish Hobbyist, along with being an online gamer (specifically World of Warcraft and Apex Legends). She also enjoys crafts including embroidery and knitting, and has ideas about starting a knitting group for dental professionals.
Ashley, Dental Assistant
Ashley is a Registered Dental Assistant who received her certification from Kaplan College in Texas after graduating in 2012. She is licensed to take x-rays, and she is currently furthering her education while studying to become a board-certified Expanded Function Duty Assistant.
In the office, she assists Dr. Danner with all types of dental procedures, including scanning and designing in-office crowns, along with helping with clear aligner orthodontics. She is also instrumental in assisting with the comprehensive diagnostics in patients with sleep apnea, breathing and airway concerns. She said she loves assisting with oral surgery procedures, and she loves seeing patients smile again leaving the office following treatment.
Originally from Midland, Texas, Ashley enjoys doing crafts and spending time at the beach with her two kids Colsyn and Paxsyn. A fun fact: among more than 600 attendees, Ashley was awarded “Most Fun Dental Assistant” on the 2019 Smiles at Sea dental education cruise!
