Meet the Team

team

Wendy

I am WMDP's Office Manager.  I have been working in dentistry for 25 years and have been with Dr. Grias since 1998.  I am responsible for the financial health of Dr. Grias’ practice. This includes everything from planning the annual budget and paying the bills to managing the patient accounts. I am fortunate that I also get to spend time working with the patients directly because I love meeting people and getting to know them.   One of the best things about working here are the relationships that I have built over the years, not only with our patients and their families, but with all of my amazing co-workers.  Being part of such a great team that truly cares about each other is a blessing, and I can honestly say that I get to work with my friends every day and for that I am very thankful. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, photography, working on various home/craft projects and listening to music.  I am also a serious Jeep enthusiast and enjoy nature & the great outdoors  behind the wheel of my Jeep whenever possible.

Hi, my name is Janet .  I am the newest member here at Team Grias and I am your Patient Care Coordinator.  I am a registered dental hygienist of 27 years, and I have transitioned into the front office to help you schedule your new patient exam, preventive recare appointments or any other appointment needed for treatment.  I have a great passion for dentistry and working with people and I look forward to meeting each of you and helping answer any of your questions.  Outside of this beautiful office, I spend time with my husband and family.  We love biking, boating and travelling~ especially to warm, sunny locations!

Chris

Hi, I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and have worked for Dr. Grias since 1997. I help with patient education and patient treatment. I enjoy creating relationships with the families in our practice. In my free time I enjoy camping, coaching baseball and spending time with my family, along with volunteering in our community.

Heidy

I am a Dental Assistant of Dr. Grias. I joined the team in August of 2010. I have been in the dental field for over 20 years and I am constantly amazed how technology has changed since I started in Dentistry. I enjoy helping patients to be aware and educate them on how to make a beautiful smile last a lifetime. I spend most of my time with my husband and 3 daughters at home working in the yard, garden or fishing on the weekends.

Karen

I am one of Dr. Grias’ hygienists. I have been practicing for over 30 years and joined WMDP in 2005.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of this dedicated team.  Building relationships with patients and helping them maintain their dental health is the most rewarding aspect of my job.  When I am away from the office I enjoy working out, playing tennis and spending time with my husband and two adult children.

Kim

I am  Dr. Grias’ Dental Assistant. I have been in dentistry for over 20 years and have been a part of this team since 2007. I love my job. I like helping our patients achieve a healthier and brighter smile and working with all of the team members. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my kids and family.

Michelle

I am WMDP's Financial Coordinator.  I am one of the newest team members here, but I have known Dr. Grias and the rest of the team for over 7 years and have been workiing in the dental field for over 26 years.   I will help with all aspects of your account with special emphasis on your insurance coverage, if you are fortunate to have dental benefits.  I will update your chart at least once annually by making sure that your infornation is correct and up-to-date.  That particular job takes up the majority of my time, so you will frequently see me on the phone as I spend a lot of time contacting insurance companies to verify benefits and follow-up on any outstanding claims.  On a daily basis, I am here as you check out after your appointment to collect your deductibles and/or co-payments and to prepare estimates for any recommended treatment, if necessary.   I love my job & I love where I work, and feel very blessed to be on "Team Grias".  I have lived in Middleville most of my life and now live on Gun Lake.  I love the sun, boating and shopping!

Kaccy

I am Dr. Effie's main dental assistant and I also assist Dr. Tom Grias.  I joined the WMDP team in the spring of 2013.  I have been exposed to dentistry my entire life because my mom, Heidy,  has been a dental assistant for over 20 years and she is Dr. Tom's main chariside assistant.  I love helping people and every day I get to do that here.  I really enjoy getting to know each patient and helping to make their dental appointments comfortable and enjoyable, all while improving their dental health and their smiles!  In my free time I enjoy fishing and being outdoors with my family.
