Compassionate Dental Care with Your Best Interest in Mind
Lauren - Office Manager
I enjoy working with our patients to ensure they have a great experience in our office. Working for Dr. Van Hook is such a privilege. I have been with The Village Dentist team since 2008. I enjoy working with such genuine and caring people who share the same passion in helping others. I have my Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Care Administration. I love being outdoors, bike riding, volunteering for events with Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, spending time with my family and friends, and my cats and dog!
Jordyn- Scheduling & Insurance Coordinator
I have been working at The Village Dentist since 2018. With being in school at the University of Michigan, pursuing a Bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene, this office has been the perfect fit for me. I am thankful for the dental knowledge that I am gaining to use towards my career in the future! I am thankful to work in a positive atmosphere with such an amazing team. In my free time, I love being outside, watching sports, & spending time with my family and friends!
Sue - Registered Dental Assistant
Dr. Van Hook and I began working together at a large practice in Westland, 26 years ago. After he left in 1998 to start his own practice in Novi, I followed him 2 years later and have been solely working for him for 16 years now. He is truly a genuinely kind person, a terrific boss who takes care of and stands by his staff! Of course, he is a highly competent and caring Dentist! I have been an assistant for 39 years, 33 years as a Registered Dental Assistant with the State of Michigan. One might say I am passionate about my profession because I have never wanted to do anything else but Dentistry! I love coming to work every day, to our beautiful office, our “home, away from home” where we provide the highest standard of dental care in Canton! I have been married for 33 years, my husband and I have 3 beautiful grown children, one son and two daughters. Not to forget to mention, a wonderful son in law and darling granddaughters who rock my world! My hobbies are sewing and getting away to our cottage up north, where we hope to retire to!

My professional mission is to always provide treatment with care and compassion.
Outside of the office I enjoy running, biking, yoga, shoe shopping, and reading. My husband Todd and I have two wonderful boys that always make life interesting. We enjoy hiking as a family and try to get it in with every vacation.
