Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Rachel has known that she wanted to be a dentist ever since she was a little kid! In fact, she did a project in the 2nd grade about her dream job and chose “dentist” without even really understanding what it meant. She regularly visited an amazing dentist as she grew up for routine care, and following in his footsteps was certainly a foregone conclusion. All these years later, she still feels 100% confident that she made the right choice.

Where Did You
Study Dentistry?

After working as a dental assistant for two years in a general dentistry office in Western Michigan, Dr. Rachel attended dental school at the University of Minnesota. Following graduation, she spent some time at a corporate dental office in Omaha and a community health center in Spokane before finally settling in at Grand Rapids Dental Care! Today, she regularly pursues further advanced training through prestigious organizations like Spear Education in order to stay up to date with the dental world.

Outside of the Dental Office,
What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Rachel and Dr. Spencer have two children – a daughter named Eleanor, a son named Lyle and a chocolate lab named Mocha. In her spare time, she loves doing anything outdoors, including hiking, biking, camping, skiing, boating, and playing sports. Some of her other favorite hobbies include cooking, reading, and gardening. There isn’t much time for these activities with two young kids at home, but she makes the most of it!
