Meet The Staff
Abigail (Abbie), Lab Technician
Abigail was born and raised in Great Falls and went to school at Great Falls College MSU for Dental Assisting. She chose dental assisting as a career after she talked to many people who had extensive dental work done and saw the difference in appearance and confidence after they had improved their oral hygiene and health. It has been a goal of Abbie’s to help patients and the public be aware of the advances in dentistry that may help them achieve the smile that they have always wanted.
In her free time, Abbie enjoys spending time with her family in the outdoors riding horses, hiking, hunting, and fishing. Abbie is currently accepted into the School of Dental Hygiene at Great Falls College MSU.

Joan grew up in Havre, MT, and decided to pursue dental hygiene as her career in her junior year of high school. Joan has always loved a great smile, helping people, and becoming acquainted with them. She takes pride in educating herself and our patients not only on their oral health but how it affects their overall health. Joan has practiced for over 30 years and still loves it! In Sheridan, Wyoming Joan lived, for 26 years, and attended dental hygiene school, graduating in 1988.

In 2010 she moved back to the Big Sky and loves being closer to her family. In 2016 Joan was awarded the Montana Dental Hygienist of the Year. When Dr. Poulson approached her to lead the office and take on administrative duties, she did not hesitate to remain an advocate for the patients she has served for so long.
Joan is blessed to have three grown children, a son, and two daughters, all of whom have graduated college and are pursuing careers of their own. She loves to be outdoors golfing, hiking, kayaking (especially in Glacier National Park) or just spending time with her family and friends. Joan loves to travel and has had some amazing memories the last few years going to Peru, Israel, Ireland, Chicago, and New York.
