She studied at Sinclair Community College and has undergone advanced training in several specialty fields as well, including periodontics, orthodontics, oral surgery, endodontics, and implant placement. Her love of giving back to others and compassion for dentistry has helped many students not only become great dental assistants, but also go on to become EFDA’s and dentists too.

Jeanne grew up in the small town of Fairborn, OH. She is the proud mother of a daughter named Stephanie and son named Mike, who have in turn blessed her with five wonderful grandchildren. In her free time, she enjoys watching all of her grandchildren play sports and vacationing with her best friends at sea side beaches.

Brooklyn Dental Assistant Instructor

Brooklyn’s hometown is Middletown, OH and currently moved to Loveland. She went to Dental Assistant Pro right out of high school and now has 5 years of in dental assisting experience. She is continuing her education in the dental field and is now studying dental hygiene at the University of Cincinnati and will graduate in May 2020. Her favorite thing about the job is meeting new students and watching them grow and expand their knowledge in the dental field to become great dental assistants. I hope all my students find the same love I found in dentistry.

Brooklyn has a boyfriend of 4 years and they enjoy traveling the world together in their spare time. Her pride and joy is her nieces, Kensington and Lydia and nephew, Maverick. They keep her busy and always have her laughing. I wanted to be a special education teacher or a flight attendant until I found my home here in the dental field.
