My career in the field of dentistry began 40 years ago and I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Isaacson in 2000 as his office manager. I enjoy the daily interactions I have with our patients, their families, and the rest of our staff. Dr. Isaacson is a perfectionist when it comes to the care he provides. Dr Dau joined our office and it did not take any time at all to see how he has the same enthusiasm for dentistry as Dr Isaacson. It is very fulfilling to work in an office that I am proud to recommend to everyone I meet. I have one grown daughter and two “grand doggers” . In my free time I enjoy fishing, traveling, reading, gardening, and a good laugh.

Front Desk Reception
I can be found at our front desk an am often the first person to greet our patients as they walk in the door. I am also responsible for scheduling appointments, processing insurance and keeping records up-to-date. I have worked in the dental field for 30 plus years. Both Dr. Isaacson and Dr. Dau are committed to providing superior quality dental care in a comfortable, inviting setting. I am married and have three grown children and two grandchildren. When I have free time I enjoy reading and traveling.

I have been in the dental field for 10 years. I worked several
years in the customer service field so those skills are useful in
my job at Tangletown Dental. My interests include watching my nephews at their sporting events. In my spare time I love to
walk my dog Charli, read travel and just have fun.

I joined the Tangletown Dental team in 1997. I assist Dr. Isaacson in all aspects of dental care. It is a real pleasure to witness our patients transformation as they receive the dental care they need. Dr. Isaacson does not only fix teeth, he changes lives as well. I am very proud to be a part of that process. I am excited about Dr. Dau joining our dental team. He brings great new technologies to our patients so they continue to receive the best dental care. I am married and have two children and two dogs. In my spare time I like to walk and read.
I joined the Tangletown Dental family in 2014 and have been
a dental assistant for 20 years. I enjoy assisting Dr. Dau with restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, and have a great
time working with our team as well. I have the opportunity to
help patients receive the highest quality of care and try to
brighten their day with my passion and cheerfulness. I am also committed to continuing education courses to expand my knowledge and enhance the quality of care the you receive in
our office. I enjoy working at Tangletown Dental, where I can
be a part of a great team that strive for excellence in dentistry.
I have three daughters and in my spare time I love spending
time with family and friends.

I have been with Tangletown Dental since 1999 after returning from Japan where I worked as a contract hygienist while my husband was serving as a dental officer. I love working with the Tangletown team and helping provide the best treatment for our patients. Although I am responsible for cleaning my patients teeth and educating them on the best way to keep their smile looking great, my favorite thing is building relationships with people and making friends. When I am not working, I spend time with my husband, Chris, and our three amazing kids Kyah, Kaden, and Kendrie. My hobbies include working out, photography and traveling.

My primary duties as a dental hygienist include cleaning and polishing teeth, instructing patients on good oral hygiene habits, providing preventive services, and working alongside Dr. Isaacson during examinations and treatment. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them maintain healthy, clean smiles. I strive to be personable and gentle to make visits as easy and comfortable as possible. My husband, Paul is wonderful and I am truly blessed to have two amazing sons, Erik and Maxim. In my free time I love visiting with family and friends, spending time outdoors, going on vacations, and camping.

I joined the Tangletown Dental team in early 2014, but I have worked with Dr. Dau since 2011. I am a 2008 graduate of the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry. I truly enjoy my job as a Registered Dental Hygienist. My husband Andy and I have lived in the neighborhood for over 15 years so I may be a familiar face to some of you. Andy and I enjoy biking, running and traveling. We take advantage of all the lakes and trails Minneapolis has to offer. We also enjoy spoiling our fur baby Barnaby whom we believe is the cutest puppy ever. It’s great having the new team together and I look forward to my future with Tangletown Dental.

My goal is to have every patient feel comfortable and confident in the care and information they receive. I love working with kids and promoting a positive and fun first experience at the dentist. I grew up in South Minneapolis and enjoy working in this community. I enjoy
taking in the fall colors around the lakes in Minneapolis and drinking hot chocolate while watching it snow. My husband,
Josh, and I have been married for two years. We have a tiny
Shih Tzu named Ellie and are having our first baby in March
2015. I love reading, working out, and spending time with my
