Debbie grew up in Indianola, Iowa, graduating from Indianola High School. She went on to marry her high school sweetheart, who was in the military. They started their life together in Germany, where the first of their three children was born. Following two and a half years in Germany they came back to the States – Texas to be exact – where they were stationed for two years. Their last duty station brought them home to Iowa, right to Fort Des Moines. This afforded Debbie the opportunity to start her career in the dental field. She has worked for specialty practices as well as general practices for thirty years. She enjoys helping people feel comfortable and focuses on meeting the patients' needs for their dental visits. Being a wife, mother of three, and grandmother of six, she brings that "family" feel to the office.

Claire grew up in Marshalltown, Iowa, where she attended Marshalltown High School. From there she went to Iowa State University and graduated with a degree in psychology. She decided a few years after completing her undergrad that she wanted to try a new career. She chose dental assisting after a few friends spoke highly of their careers in the dental field. Claire spent a few years living in Oregon, where she loved going to Mt. Hood and the Oregon Coast to hike and explore. She has an adorable black-and-white dog named Libby, whose sass runs the house. Claire’s favorite part of dentistry is being on a team that transforms patients’ smiles above their expectations and seeing their confidence grow.
