LJ Dentistry LLC - Our Staff
Kari - Dental Assistant/Financial Coordinator
After completing the dental assistant program at Dental Assisting Technologies in 2007, I assisted at my first office for over 9 years before moving to an office on the the Illinois side of the river. I was lucky enough to be hired on at LJ Dentistry in early 2017. Since then, I've had the pleasure of helping our patients in all aspects of the practice. I assist Dr. Jackson with all procedures that are performed in the office and from time to time, you'll see me up front helping with your insurance/financial needs.
When I'm not in the office, I enjoy anything that involves being in the sun and going to my daughter's volleyball and softball games.
Heidi - Dental Hygienist
I work one-on-one with our patients of all ages to improve and maintain their oral health through regular cleanings and dental hygiene education. I have worked at LJ Dentistry since 2005, and in that time I’ve gotten to know many of the families in our community. I enjoy the personal interactions I have with our patients and knowing that I am making a difference in their oral health and confidence. I love working with both Dr. Lemon and Dr. Jackson because they truly are caring and compassionate with their patients. They always put our patients’ needs first.
I am happily married to my husband, Mark, and we have a wonderful son named Zeb. I love spending time with my family and friends and enjoy attending my son’s sports events as well as motorcycling and riding our ATV.
Mollie - Dental Hygienist
For over 14 years I’ve helped patients improve and maintain their oral health through cleanings and other preventive hygiene services. I joined LJ Dental in 1997 and have enjoyed getting to know all of our patients and their families. Our doctors are both so talented at the dental care they provide and are great with our patients. It’s obvious that they love what they do!
I am happily married with two young children. We love to travel as a family and enjoy any chance we get to be outdoors.
Tami - Dental Hygienist
I’ve enjoyed working in dentistry for the past 20 years. I especially enjoy being able to laugh and smile with our patients and make sure they have a positive dental experience. I focus on teaching our patients about their oral health, and providing them with outstanding care. I look forwarding to meeting new people, hearing all about their lives, and developing strong friendships with them and their families.
I have two wonderful children. In my free time I enjoy camping, traveling, and attending my children’s sporting events.
Barbara - Appointment Coordinator/Dental Assistant
I've been a dental assistant since 2012 and I have worked at LJ Dentistry since April of 2013. I'm the first person you see when you walk into the office and I have the pleasure of being able to help our patients schedule their appointments, along with assisting Dr. Jackson occasionally.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have one son. He's the light of our world and when I'm not chasing him around, I enjoy anything that has to do with fitness, as well as spending time with my dogs, watching hockey, and trying everything I find on Pinterest.
Sherri - Dental Assistant
My career as a dental assistant began over 30 years ago and I’ve been a proud member of the LJ Dental team since 1994. I enjoy the personal interactions I have with our patients while creating an efficient and pleasant environment for them. I also really appreciate the expertise,skill, and high level of care that our doctors give each of our patients. In addition to my work here, I have also been a dental assisting instructor in the Quad City area since 2004.
I have been married since 1984 and have two grown children. In our spare time my family enjoys camping and boating together.
Chris - Dental Assistant
My duties include all aspects of the dental office and assisting each doctor with chairside dental procedures. My favorite thing about working in dentistry is having the ability to learn and grow in my knowledge, as well as getting to know different people and helping make a difference in their lives. Here at this practice, we are a truly dedicated team.
I have been married since 2004 and have one child who still lives at home with us and three grown children. We also have three dogs and a cat to keep us busy! In our spare time my family enjoys camping and kayaking together.
