Dental Assistant

I joined Atchison Family Dentistry in 1984 with Dr. Corrigan, continued with Dr. Van Dyne, and now get to work with Dr. Patel! My role includes assisting him with patient procedures, general maintenance of equipment and inventory control. I love getting to know our patients on a personal level and helping them achieve all their dental goals.

My husband Bob and I have been married for 35 years. We have two grown daughters, Jennifer (Anthony) and Stephanie (Jacob), as well as three grandchildren, Aaden, Addison, and Callie. My hobbies include reading and spending time with my grandchildren.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated with my Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Johnson County Community College in 1987 and joined Atchison Family Dentistry in 1993. We have so much history together here; it is a joy to come to a workplace when I know we will give our patients the best oral care and advice. The transition from Dr. Van Dyne to Dr. Patel in the last few years has been a smooth process and I feel that the staff, in their professional demeanor, has been instrumental.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Brittany grew up in Savannah, MO.  She earned her Dental Hygiene degree from Concorde Career College in Kansas City, MO and has certifications in both Nitrous Oxide and local anesthesia delivery.  She is licensed in both Kansas and Missouri.

Brittany enjoys continuing education courses on the latest dental technologies and treatments so she can deliver the best care to her patients.  She loves working with our team and appreciates the quality of care we strive to achieve.  She looks forward to building relationships with her patients, educating them, and helping them maintain good oral health.

Outside of the office Brittany enjoys spending time with her son Baylor and dog Benny.


Front Office

I joined Atchison Family Dentistry in 2019. Before joining the team at Atchison Family Dentistry, I spent ten years working as a department manager at a local business, which I loved. That experience has helped me excel quickly at my current position supporting our team. I am excited to greet our patients, get to know them and make them feel welcomed at our amazing office. I really believe this is a team that is excited to help the members of our community.

I grew up in Atchison and have very deep, strong ties to the community. Atchison is a wonderful place to be because of the great sense of community here. I have two awesome dogs, Bodhi and Polly, and love to share stories about them. I enjoy how our team strives to make the community for which I love a better place.


Front Office/Dental Assistant

I joined the team at Atchison Family Dentistry in 2020.  I studied dental assisting at Stratford Career Institute in 2018 and began my career with Dr Jordan in Hiawatha, KS before coming to work with Dr Patel at Atchison Family Dentistry.  My favorite part about work at Atchison Family Dentistry is how much fun I have with my coworkers and getting to improve the lives of our patients everyday.  I live in Lancaster, KS with my husband Chris and our adorable son Mason.  I enjoy spending time with my family, interior design, crafting, and the outdoors when the sun is shining!
