Hygienists Cassandra, Brianne, and Ashlee
•Cassandra was raised in the White Mountains of Arizona, and moved to Flagstaff in 1999 to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from NAU. After receiving her degree, Cassandra worked as a dental hygienist in Oregon for 3 years before returning to Flagstaff. She joined our dental team in 2008. Cassandra enjoys helping her patients pursue excellent oral health and emphasizes preventative dentistry. She strives to make each visit a positive experience by providing gentle care and education about gum disease and oral health. In her free time, Cassandra enjoys many outdoor activities with her husband and two young son's including camping, hiking, biking, skiing, and playing softball. She is also an avid baker, and loves to travel!
•Brianne is a Flagstaff native who grew up with two brothers, playing sports, and enjoying the ideal surroundings that Northern Arizona has to offer. She attended NAU where she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2004. After graduation, she moved to Phoenix and practiced for five years. Ultimately, Flagstaff was Brianne's home and she returned in 2009 to happy family and friends. She began working with Dr. Henkenius in July of 2009 where she is excited to be part of a great team of caring professionals.
Bri and her husband Garett have completely fallen in love with being parents to their two young children. They enjoy taking adventures in their trusty Jeep and traveling throughout the Southwest and beyond. She enjoys camping, boating, cooking, photography and pretty much any sport. She is a huge Arizona Cardinals fan and enjoys attending games and watching them whenever she gets the opportunity.
Bri loves being a dental hygienist because of the one on one relationship she is able to develop with her patients. "It is an amazing feeling to see a patient return for a recall visit and see improvements in their oral hygiene, and in their attitude about taking responsibility for their own health."
•Ashlee began working with Dr. Henkenius in 2016. She studied at ASU before completing her Dental Hygiene Program at Mohave Community College in 2015. She was born and raised in Flagstaff and loves this town! Ashlee feels "blessed to come to work and do what I love everyday! Treating patients is my top priority. Oral health and prevention is key and I love the chance I have to educate patients everyday!" In her spare time she loves her time with her family, running, her frequent trips to Disneyland, reading and volunteering with the youth at church.
