Meet the Everwell Dentistry Team
Jill| Office Manager
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Eastern Michigan University in 2000 and started working in the dental field with a dental consulting company. I have been working with Dr. Embree since she started her own private practice in 2002 and absolutely love coming to work. Every day I enjoy catching up with our current patients as well as meeting our new patients. You will find me doing anything from scheduling your appointments to taking care of your administrative needs. I reconcile all billing and insurance, and play an active role as our office's HIPAA coordinator.
Kim| Scheduling Coordinator
I started in the dental field in 2007 as a dental assistant in a general practice. Over the years I made the transition to the front office where I gained experience in areas such as appointment scheduling, dental insurance and billing. I have been working with Dr. Embree since 2011 and I truly enjoy working with our patients to make sure they have a great dental experience. My favorite part of Everwell Dentistry is building relationships with our patient family and assisting them, whether it is on the phone or when in the office. I live in Belleville with my family.
Alex| Patient Care Coordinator
I received my Associates in Business Administration from Schoolcraft College and started in the dental field in 2018. I became a part of Everwell Dentistry in the Summer of 2019. You’ve probably talked to me on the phone or will soon, as I take care of patient care and scheduling needs. I live in Livonia with my 3 cats & 2 dogs.
Maria| Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I have been working in Ann Arbor as a dental hygienist since graduating from Mott Community College in 2007. I started working in a dental office when I was in high school and never looked back. I love dental hygiene because it allows me to help people improve their overall health and I really enjoy discussing how oral health is related to whole body health. My absolute favorite part of being a dental hygienist is the connections I have made with my patients over the years. Sometimes I think I have learned more from them than they have learned from me. My husband and I live in Ann Arbor with our dog, Lilly and cat, Stuart. Outside of work I enjoy reading, running, traveling and backcountry backpacking
Jenny| Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2000 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I then received my anesthetic license from the University of Detroit Mercy in 2003. I grew up in Canton and have worked most of my career there, but when I moved to the Ann Arbor area in 2017 I found Everwell Dentistry. I love being a dental hygienist and knew since I was a teenager that this is what I wanted to do. I love where I am at today and am grateful to be a part of this wonderful team.
Jamie| Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I have been with Dr. Embree since 2002 and I really enjoy working in the hygiene field. I graduated from Kellogg Community College in 2000 with an Assoc.of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2002 with a Bachelors Degree of Science in Dental Hygiene and received my Anesthetic license from the Univ. of Michigan in 2003. My desire to be a dental hygienist began when I was about 10 years old, and my major interest is in periodontal therapy. I live in Ann Arbor with my husband and 2 daughters.
Said| Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)
I am originally from Damascus, Syria and moved to the U.S. in 2013 to pursue my educational goals. I graduated from the dental assisting program at WCC in 2015. My desire to further my education in the dental field led me to pursue my bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2020 with high honors. I am a registered dental hygienist and I have licensure in administrating nitrous oxide and local anesthesia.
Throughout my academic and clinical career, I have had many opportunities to volunteer to offer free dental care to patients from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. In February 2020, I was selected to participate in a two-week outreach program in Meru, Kenya. My goal is to bridge the socioeconomic gap in access to dental care and increase oral health awareness.
In my spare time, I like to hang out with friends and try different cuisines. I love learning new languages, so I am always trying to connect with people from different backgrounds to learn about new cultures and languages.
Ellen| Registered Dental Hygienist
I became a member of the Everwell Dentistry team in the Fall of 2020. I'm originally from Battle Creek, MI where I graduated from Kellogg Community College with an Associate's Degree of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I have always known I wanted to help people in my career choice as a dental hygienist. I love helping my patients have a clean mouth and a healthy, beautiful smile. In my spare time I love relaxing at home with my fiancé and my dog.
Jessica| Dental Assistant
I received my dental assisting certificate from Ross Medical Education Center and have been a dental assistant since 2010. I worked with Dr. Embree and Dr. Heys from 2016 to 2018 and am now happy to be back working with them both again. I love helping patient’s feel as comfortable as possible. I have two children who keep me very busy outside of work. We love to play outside and make a lot of arts and crafts.
