Meet the Staff

  • Jennifer Tripp
    My 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 Grulke

    I 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 girls Isabella and Hailey 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. 

  • Ashley Loney

    I am a Northern Michigan native born and raised in Beulah. I married my husband, Dan, in August 2013. We have three amazing children, Vaeda, Daxton and Laela.  We are very blessed to have such a fun little family and to be apart of such a great community. 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. 

  • Nicole Lamerson
    Patient Coordinator

    My name is Nicole and I was raised in Benzie County and a graduate of Benzie Central High School.  I have a daughter, Amanda, who is married and given me two wonderful grandchildren.  My son, Cody, graduated from Frankfort High School in 2018 and my other son, Connor, is a junior at Frankfort High School.  My hobbies include beach walking and rock finding, photography and travel.  I recently retired from my career as a 911 dispatcher after 25 years.  I feel very blessed to work with such great people in this practice and fortunate to still be able to help people....just in a different way.
