our team

Our dental team consists of a number of full time and part time staff, many of whom have been with us for over a decade. Family is important to our whole team, and some of Dr. Brian Croutze’s family members even work at our clinics. Brian’s wife Stephanie works in our clinic as a dental assistant and his sister Cassandra is the practice’s business manager.

We feel very fortunate to work with such wonderful people as well as to serve the families in our community.
