Meet The Staff

Jen Busse – Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky. I attended University of Cincinnati and graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in 1996. For the last 21 years, I have worked in private practice in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. It is very gratifying for me as a hygienist to give care to my patients in a calm and caring atmosphere where their comfort and well-being is the main concern. I am also the proud mother of three young adults who are currently in college. I enjoy spending my free time outdoors either boating, riding motorcycles, camping, or relaxing on my horse farm.


Sondra Mitchell – Dental Hygienist

I am a lifelong resident of Northern Kentucky. I graduated from The University of Cincinnati in 2014. As a Dental Hygienist, I sincerely enjoy getting to know each patient’s unique personality and helping them achieve their best and healthiest smile. I love to provide a comfortable, caring and clean environment so that every patient is assured that they are receiving the best care possible. 

Outside the dental office, I love spending time with my husband, family and friends. We love to travel, explore new restaurants and spend time outdoors. One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. My husband and I love to spend hours on our themed costumes each year for our trips to New Orleans. We are lucky to still have our 22 year old cat named Boo. She’s still a bit of a scaredy cat!
