Hi! My name is Erin. My dental assisting journey has just begun, and I could not be more excited to be starting it at Pine City Family Dental. Growing up, I was always that kid that LOVED going to the dentist, so I hope to make going to the dentist a fun experience for all my patients. I grew up in Boise, ID but have always had family in Minnesota, which inspired my move here 6 years ago. I currently live in Harris with my husband, Patrick and our 3 doggies; Rocky, Oliver, and Kena. In my downtime, I love to be outside. This includes anything from being on the lake, tubing the river, disc golfing, or even just sitting on my deck. I also enjoy reading a good book! I look forward to meeting and getting to know our community as I continue along my dental assisting journey.
Hello! My name is Lani and I have been a dental hygienist for over 9 years. Everyday is a new adventure that typically brings me joy and laughter. I love seeing what the next day brings and who’s coming in for a visit. My patients enjoy and appreciate my compassion and bedside manner. Of course having fun is always a must. I enjoy a good rainy day along with a good movie, reading, cooking/baking, Nintendo and sketching. I am originally from Duluth and have been in the area for the last 7 years. I live a happy country life with my husband and stepson.

Hi my name is Jill! I am a hygienist here at Pine City Family Dental. I grew up in North Branch and currently reside in the Braham area with my husband, Derek and son named Rowan.
