Meet Valparaiso’s
Favorite Dental Team

Our team’s primary goal is to make your life easy whenever you come in for an appointment. They’ll check you in quickly, make sure you’re comfortable in the chair, and they’ll even make paying for your treatments 100% painless. Their smiles and laughter will be some of the first things you see and hear as you step through our doors, and they’ll immediately let you know you made the right decision by coming to Creating Smiles, PC. To learn about some of the friendly faces you’ll meet here, read on below.

Melissa, Office Manager

Office manager Melissa

Melissa has been a part of our dental office since day one, and she has over 25 years of experience in the dental field. She never gets tired of seeing patients walk out of our dental office smiling ear to ear after completing their treatment. A Munster native, she’s a graduate of the University of Southern Indiana.

Melissa has a daughter who is currently in dental school as well as two sons who are accomplished baseball players. One currently plays for the Texas Rangers organization! When she isn’t at the dental office, she loves to travel and redecorate her home. She’s a big fan of HGTV—she gets so many ideas from the shows!

Heather, Insurance & Financing Coordinator

Insurance coordinator Heather

Heather is originally from Lowell, and she brings over five years of dental experience to our team. She’s a graduate of Kaplan University and is certified in both CPR and dental radiology (X-rays). She says that her favorite part of her job is seeing the transformation that happens to patients inside the dental office. Watching someone who was previously fearful of dental care walk out with a gorgeous smile always makes her day.

Heather and her husband have an active toddler at home that keeps them both very busy. They’re also occupied by their many pets, which include two dogs, a cat, a bird, and a fish tank. When she isn’t working or parenting, she likes to spend time by the pool, play sports, go for walks, and ride her bike. She’s recently started restoring old furniture as well so it looks like it’s brand new.

Skye, Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Skye is a long time member of the team, having been with our dental office for over 25 years so far. She graduated from Indiana University and is certified in both CPR and radiology. She takes a lot of pride in being able to help anxious patients overcome their fears so they can finally get the care they need without stress.

Skye is originally from Hobart and has two daughters. One is currently in college studying elementary education, while the other is a senior in high school. Away from work, she likes to stay occupied by reading and adopting senior animals.

Sara, Dental Assistant

Dental assistant Sara

Originally from Chicago, Sara has been in the dental field for more than a decade. She attended Olympia College and also has certifications in coronal polishing, dental sealants, radiology, and CPR. She says the best part of her job is being able to give patients a confident smile—to her, nothing is more rewarding!

Sara and her boyfriend have a combined family! When she isn’t keeping them organized, she enjoys reading, dancing, and cooking.

Megan, Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienist megan

Megan is from right here in Valparaiso, and she is a graduate of Indiana University Northwest. She also has additional certifications in CPR and dental radiology. She loves that her job enables her to improve people’s health and appearance at the same time.

Away from the dental office, Megan likes to spend time with her sisters (one of which is her twin!) along with her three cats. Her hobbies include playing basketball, softball, and watching movies. The first thing you’ll probably notice about her is her hair, and that’s because she’s never had it cut!
