Front Office:



Hi, my name is Janet. I joined Team Grias in 2014 as your Patient Care Coordinator. My background is a registered dental hygienist for over 30 years, although I spend most of my time in the front office now. I have a great passion for dentistry and working with patients! More recently, I have taken on more behind the scenes responsibilities as the office administrator. If you have any questions on your account or other concerns, please feel free to call. Outside of this beautiful office, I spend time with my husband and growing family. We love biking, boating and traveling to warm, sunny locations!


I am WMDP’s Financial Coordinator. I have been working in the dental field for over 35 years. I will help with all aspects of your account with special emphasis on your insurance coverage if you are fortunate enough to have dental benefits. I will update your chart at least once annually by making sure that your information is correct and up-to-date. That particular job takes up the majority of my time, so you will frequently see me on the phone as I spend a lot of time contacting insurance companies to verify benefits and follow-up on any outstanding claims. On a daily basis, I am here as you check out after your appointment to collect your deductibles and/or co-payments and to prepare estimates for any recommended treatment, if necessary. I love my job & I love where I work, and feel very blessed to be part of Team Grias. I have lived in Middleville most of my life and now live on Gun Lake. I love the sun, boating and shopping!


Hello, my name is Danielle. I started my journey with WMDP in April 2021. I am the first face you will see when you walk in. My goal is to make you feel at home while checking you in for your appointment and getting to know you on a personal level as all our patients are family here at WMDP. I started in the dental field right out of high school in 2014. Fun fact, I used to be a dental assistant until I had an unexpected hip surgery. Outside the office I enjoy remodeling my house I bought in 2020, being outdoors with my black lab, Daisy and two cats Lucifer and Nova. During the summer you will find me out on the water with family and friends.
