Nicole Cleversy - Dental Hygienist
Nicole has over 10 years in experience in dentistry. She started off her journey originally in Art. While in college she was a dental assistant every day after classes and quickly realized her passion for dentistry was greater than what it was for Art and switched her major to Dental Hygiene. Nicole completed her Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Lakeland Community College in 2008 and took the Ohio State Dental Boards and began her career. In 2012 she completed a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from the Ohio State University. In her free time she enjoys physical fitness, nutrition, and continues to do art work. She prides herself on "pain free cleaning's" and truly cares about the wants and needs of our patients.

"I think the ability to make our patients calm and comfortable is important and I love the long term relationships we build with patients." - Renee
Heather Funk - Dental Hygienist & Assistant
Heather began her career in dentistry 9 years ago as a chairside dental assistant. She became a Certified Dental Assistant, and then she went on for additional certification as an Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA) at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Upon completion of her program, she passed her board exams and is able to place dental fillings.
Next, Heather went on to obtain her degree in Dental Hygiene from Lakeland Community College. During her program, she was also trained and licensed to administer local anesthesia and Nitrous-Oxide sedation. Because of her vast qualifications, you may see Heather in multiple positions within our office.
She goes where she is needed and does so with a cheerful smile. In addition to being a part of our great team, she volunteers her time outside of work to provide dental services with many organizations, such as Give Kids a Smile. Heather spends the rest of her time at home with her husband and their 9 year old son.
