Dee, Dental Assistant
I am the newest staff member to join this amazing Cooper Dental Team! I graduated from IPFW's certified dental assisting program in 2005. (Goodness, time flies!) My passion is communication and genuinely connecting with people. Dentistry has definitely given me that opportunity. When I'm not in the office assisting both Dr. Coopers, you'll find me showing homes or doing someone's hair and makeup. That's right, Real Estate Agent and Cosmetologist are also under my credentials. I feel very blessed to be able to help and serve.
Kelly, Receptionist/Dental Assistant
I am the newest addition at the front desk to the Cooper Dentistry Family. I started my dental career in 1996 as a dental front office associate and later became a dental assistant. Working for both doctors and with our great staff is truly a blessing. I enjoy gardening and working in the yard, spending time with my husband and three children.
