Kelly, Office Administrator
Since 1994, I have been a part of Dr. Stocker’s dental team. I truly enjoy working with the many aspects of patient care and helping patients feel comfortable in our dental office. We have a great staff that makes coming to work enjoyable and some days even an adventure. Over the years, we have continued to keep our office up to date with advanced technology and continuing education in the dental field. Spending time with my husband and three boys fills my life’s schedule with all sorts of exciting activities outside of the office. 2021 will be a busy year with one son getting married, one entering college, and one entering high school.

As an office administrator, I enjoy working with all our patients to ensure that their visit is a positive experience. We have a great staff to work with which makes work a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Outside the office, I enjoy being with my family, friends, cooking, and camping.

I have been working with Dr. Stocker since he came to Lima in 1990. I enjoy working in the dental practice, assisting with patients and helping people with their dental needs. I also enjoy getting to know all the many patients that come to our office. We have a great staff who make it fun and interesting to come to work.

Laura , Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a 1997 graduate of Rhodes State College and began working in Dr. Stocker’s office since 2002. As a dental hygienist, I enjoy getting to know my patients and working with all the wonderful team-oriented staff. I currently live in Spencerville with my husband. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my three daughters and friends, along with relaxing at the lake.
Julie, Registered Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Lima Technical College in 1999 and have been a dental hygienist for 20 years. I came to Dr. Stocker’s office in early 2020. One aspect of my profession that I enjoy is talking with our patients and getting to know them. I enjoy having team members that make my day fun. I appreciate the technology that we have at the office to educate our patients. Outside of the office, spending time with my husband and two children keeps me busy.
Angeline, Registered Dental Hygienist, BSDH
I have been a registered dental hygienist and part of Dr. Stocker’s team since 1999, when I received my associate degree in dental hygiene from Lima Technical College (Rhodes State College). I returned to college and obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene, with a specialization in education, from The Ohio State University in 2010. That same year, I started teaching in the Dental Hygiene Department at Rhodes State College. I am an active member of The American Dental Hygiene Association and have held many leadership positions on the local, state, and national level. Being a part of all these groups has contributed greatly to improving my role as a dental hygienist, educator, and community member. The opportunity to help people, in a field that was growing and evolving while still having the ability to have and grow with my own family, is what drew me to the field of dentistry. I love the dental field and the opportunity it has given me to share what I have learned with others, as well as learn from my patients and colleagues. My favorite thing to do in my spare time is spend time with my husband, our three children and other family and friends. I also enjoy cooking, reading, and running.

Brenda, Bookkeeper
Most of my work comes in the form of keeping the financial records for the office and, occasionally, I fill in, when needed. I am a graduate of The Ohio State University, where I met Jon. We’ve been married for over 30 years and have two grown children. In addition to my responsibilities for the office, I serve on several boards: Elida Local Schools, Lima Community Church of the Nazarene and WTLW TV-44. Outside of these responsibilities I enjoy volunteering at church and school, spending time with family and friends, and travel. We’re so glad dentistry brought us here; Northwest Ohio is a great place to raise a family and call home!
