Jaide originally hails from Saint Peter and has been part of Valley View’s team for nearly five years. She earned her education from Minnesota State University in Mankato. Today, what she enjoys most about her work is how much her role has evolved over time, her amazing coworkers, and learning lots about dentistry from Dr. Miller.
Jaide is the oldest of three kids and comes from a very close, tight-knit family. Her biggest hobby outside of the practice is sports! She coaches softball and basketball for St. Peter. An interesting fact about her: she’s had a total of 16 teeth pulled so far in her life, including 8 “baby” teeth, four permanent ones, and four wisdom teeth.
Sue, Insurance/Account Specialist
Sue’s oral healthcare career impressively spans nearly 40 years. Before her current position, she worked as a Registered Dental Assistant for 30 years. Today, she is proud to be a knowledgeable, experienced resource to patients in need, answering their finance questions and helping them navigate the cost of treatment so they can feel comfortable maintaining their oral health.
Originally from Roseville, Sue has two grown children with families of their own, as well as four grandchildren – with one more on the way! IN her spare time, she really enjoys traveling, especially finding small, out of the way places. In the past, she’s gone to Guatemala twice and volunteered by building houses and handing out oral hygiene products to grade school children.
Deb, Executive Dental Assistant
Deb received her dental education at both Central Lakes College and the University of Minnesota. With an amazing 35+ years of experience, she has lots of advanced training under her belt, including education in laser therapy, dental implant placement, oral mucosal lesions, cavity prevention, and much more. What she enjoys most about her job here at Valley View Dental is being able to meet so many new people and improve their lives – one smile at a time!
Deb has been blessed with six great children and eleven wonderful grandchildren. Her family takes most of her attention when she’s away from work, but her other hobbies include staining glass, scrapbooking, gardening, traveling, taking her dog for walks, and being with her loved ones at their lake house. She is very thankful for all that God has provided her this far in life.
