Nicole Miller (Office Manager)

Hi there!  My name is Nicole, and I’m the office manager at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry.  I’m passionate about being a patient advocate.  I take great pride in making sure our office runs smoothly and efficiently with patient care being of the utmost importance.  I’m always happy to answer your questions regarding your account and/or insurance benefits.  I find it rewarding to calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible.  There’s nothing like that satisfied look on a patient’s face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment, to come out the other end with an even bigger better smile!  It’s important to me to make sure our patients are able to receive the excellent quality dentistry they need and deserve.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two grandsons.  I also love being outdoors, caring for my chickens and traveling.

Kari Parks (Patient Care Coordinator)

My name is Kari and I joined the Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry’s team in September 2018 as Patient Coordinator.  Dr. Jenicke has entrusted me with much of what you will see when you check-in and check-out, as well as the experience you receive when you call into our office.  I enjoy watching our patients’ progress as they come in for treatment and love their brilliant smile.  I am so grateful to work in a fun and caring environment where I learn something new every day.
I am a busy mom of 2 active boys, ages 11 and 9.  I lived in Georgia for 14 years and moved back to the area in 2017.  We love traveling to see our southern family and seeing new places.  I enjoy reading and family game nights.

Carrie House RDH (Dental Hygienist)

Hi, my name is Carrie and I’m one of the hygienists at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry.  I graduated from Ferris State University in 2001, I’ve been a hygienist for 18 years and I love every minute of it!  I started working for Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry in 2013.  I enjoy the quality time spent educating my patients about their oral hygiene needs, and my favorite part of my job is developing a long lasting relationship with my patients. 
The ability to help y patients achieve maximum oral health, excellent results, and their positive feedback gives me great pride in my work. 
I am blessed with the opportunity to work with an awesome dentist and fantastic coworkers here at Brilliant Smiles Family Dentistry, it has been a very rewarding experience.  I spend my time off with my husband and three children (16, 14, and 12 year old).  If I’m not at the office you can find me traveling all over the state taking my children to their travel sporting events.

Mary Rees RDH (Dental Hygienist)

Hello, my name is Mary!  I’ve been a hygienist for 14 years and have been practicing with Dr. Jenicke since April 2012.  I enjoy educating our patients by explaining dental conditions an dental procedures.  Taking that little extra time to educate our patients really helps them gain a better understanding of the overall health of their mouth.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time wit my family, singing with my church band, gardening, cooking, baking, and traveling.  I also love having such great co-workers and an amazing box!  I can truly say I love my job!

Margo Kill (Dental Assistant)

Hey there! I am Margo, a dental assistant to Dr. Jenicke. I started in the dental field in 2014 in orthodontics, where I received all on the job training which carried me over here in July of 2019 and I am very happy to be here to serve you! My favorite things about dentistry include seeing procedures evolve from start to finish, and all the progress that happens in between. It is very rewarding to assist in giving you your most brilliant smile, and I love that Dr. Jenicke is here for exactly that, while always deeply caring about the well-being of her patients. Outside of working in this office full of spunky ladies, I love DJ’ing my own loud music while I exercise (spin biking and running), telling corny jokes, going golfing, and spending time in my PJs at home with a huge bowl of popcorn watching movies. I was born and raised in Falmouth, but now reside in tiny Lucas with my husband since 2016 and our two loving cats Xena and Hoosier. I can’t wait to meet you and find a little bit out about you also!
