Office Manager

My career in the field of dentistry began in 1971 and I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Dau 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. Dau is a perfectionist when it comes to the care he provides. 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 have been in the dental field since 2004. 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.


Front Desk Reception

I have worked in the dental field since 1996. I enjoy meeting our patients and taking the time to help them whether it’s scheduling an appointment or assisting with insurance questions. Making sure our patients are taken care of is my first priority.

I am married and have 2 grown children, 1 grandchild. I love being outdoors. I enjoy gardening, reading, boating, walking and spending time with family and friends.

I joined the Tangletown Dental team in 1997. I assist Dr. Dau in all aspects of dental care. It is a real pleasure to witness our patients’ transformations as they receive the dental care they need. Dr. Dau does not only fix teeth, he changes lives as well. I am very proud to be a part of that process. Dr. Dau brings great new technologies to our patients so they continue to receive the best dental care. I am married and have two children and three dogs. In my spare time, I like to walk and read.

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. Dau 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 three amazing sons. In my free time, I love visiting with family and friends, spending time outdoors, going on vacations, and camping.


Miranda - Dental Hygienist


Dental Hygienist

I began my career as a dental hygienist in 2008 after receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and have loved every minute of it! My passion has always been in healthcare and making a positive impact in others lives has been incredibly fulfilling. I take pride in making sure all my patients are comfortable, are treated with the utmost respect, and get the best care possible at each visit.

I live close by the clinic, so you’re likely to see me walking around the neighborhood with my golden doodle, my children, and my husband. In my free time I enjoy biking, running, walking (anything to be outside!), cooking, traveling and most of all…spending time with my family!

I look forward to meeting you and am excited to play a role in your unique smile and overall dental health.


Dental Hygienist

I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2000. And to this day, I am blessed to be able to say I still love my job! Helping to make sure my patients get the experience they are looking for at Tangletown Dental, is very important to me. Everyone is different and unique, and we strive to treat every patient as the individual that they are.

I live with my two children, and dog, in Plymouth. On summer days, you will find us on a baseball or softball field, or at the family cabin on the lake. In the winter we are sledding, skating or cooking together and watching movies. Whatever we do, we try to have some fun! I’m excited to be on this team, and look forward to someday meeting you!



Dental Hygienist

I started my career in dental hygiene in 2010, I knew from my late teen years I was destined to be in healthcare. I enjoy meeting new people and building long term relationships with patients. I have a patient focused philosophy when it comes to dental hygiene therapy by promoting proper dental health care, wellness, respect, and happiness with each individual visit.

I’ve been a Minnesotan my whole life. I grew up in Prior Lake and currently live downtown Minneapolis with my husband. Outside of work I enjoy cooking, baking, yoga, traveling, trying out the newest restaurants Minneapolis has to offer, and warm summer nights spent outside.

I am excited to be apart of the Tangletown Dental team and look forward to meeting you someday!
