Meet the Staff


Dianna - Dental Hygienist

Hi! I have worked as a dental hygienist since 1981. I have worked happily with Dr. Zoll since 1988 and continue to enjoy working with Dr. Knierim. Each day is not only exciting but so much fun. The greatest reward is to see a smile on each child's face after I clean their teeth.

I am married with three grown sons, three awesome daughters-in-laws and nine adorable grandchildren. I have a golden doodle, Dusty. My husband and I like to travel with our family and make lots of memories.


Laurie - Dental Assistant

I have been working in the dental field since 1983, assisting chairside, sterilizing, and taking radiographs. I love getting to know the children at each visit, talking with them, and asking questions about themselves. They really let their personalities shine! It's great to see! I enjoy getting to know and developing a good rapport with the parents, too. I believe in Dr. Knierim's ethics, and the treatment each child receives is the highest quality.

I have two children, Adam and Courtney. I also have two dogs, Sam and Bo. Some of my hobbies include painting, , shopping, and camping.


Tammy - Dental Hygienist

I have worked in the dental field since 2003. As a dental hygienist I strive to provide the best service for my patients and work one-on-one to help patients establish goals to achieve excellent oral health. Dr. Knierim is not only an amazing dentist but also a mentor. She has provided me with guidance and leadership opportunities to further help expand my career in dental hygiene. There is never a dull moment working at our office!

I am married and we have a son, Jacob. In my free time I enjoy singing, traveling, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.

Hello, I have worked in the dental field since 1998. I started as a dental assistant and later furthered my education to become a dental hygienist.

I enjoy teaching children the skills they need to have a healthy smile. Dr. Knierim is a wonderful dentist who provides compassionate care and I'm proud to be a part of her team.

I have two incredible boys and I enjoy reading, shopping, and going to the beach.
