Jennifer TrippRDAMy name is Jen and I was born and raised in Frankfort, Michigan. I graduated from Frankfort High School in 1998 and attended Central Michigan University and obtained my Bachelor's degree in elementary education. In 2008, I received my Associates degree in dental assisting from Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City and became RDA certified. I live in my childhood home with my three beautiful daughters, Olivia, Ava, Emersyn and my husband, Brian. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, kayaking, and writing.
Kristina GrulkeRDHI was born and raised in Manistique, a small town in the Upper Peninsula. I became a registered Hygienist after graduating from Ferris State University in 2015. I currently live in Interlochen with my husband Mark, our beautiful little girl Isabella and our dog Bear. We were married on June 24th, 2017 in my hometown of Manistique. I feel so lucky to have joined such a wonderful practice and community.
I am a Northern Michigan native born and raised in Beulah. I married my husband, Dan, in August 2013. We had our daughter, Vaeda Rae, in March 2015 and had our son, Daxton Daniel, in February 2017. We are now expecting our third child in late May 2019 and could not be more excited. We are very blessed to have such a great little family. We also have three dogs, a German Shepherd and two Pugs who we love very much. My husband is the Varsity basketball coach at Frankfort-Elberta High School so we end up spending a lot of time in the gym. We love being active and going on adventures with our children. I've always loved dentistry and have a strong passion to help others. I feel so lucky to be a part of this great team.
I'm from Ludington, Michigan and when I'm not in the office, I enjoy traveling and trying new foods! I am a huge animal lover and have two dogs (one rescue), Yoshi and Hachi. I've always felt smiles were an expression of happiness and that is why I continued my education at Ferris State University where I received my degree in dental hygiene. I have always had a strong passion for the healthcare field and helping people. I am thankful to be a part of such a close-knit team that feels like family and am excited to be a part of this community! I look forward to meeting new faces and taking care of your smile!
