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 for helping others.

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Care Administration. I love being outdoors, bike riding, volunteering for events with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and spending time with my husband, family, and my cats and dog!

Patient Account Coordinator

I have been working in the dental field since 1987, and still enjoying every minute. My field of study originally was nursing; I attended Michigan State University and Eastern Michigan University. Yes, my blood truly runs green and white. I am the mom of 2 young adult children and proud “Grandma” to our fur babies, Chloe, Yana, Charlie & Lulu. Two dogs and two cats. I am thrilled to be a part of the team at The Village Dentist!


Registered Dental Hygienist

As a professional, my calling is to serve people & develop lasting relationships by promoting health & wellness through the provision of dental hygiene care. I am a member of both the American Dental Hygiene Association and the Michigan Dental Hygienist Association.

I have received advanced training and certification to administer local anesthetics and nitrous oxide sedation. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Detroit Mercy and a Masters in Dental Hygiene from the University of Michigan. Recently, I have become a Clinical Assistant Professor and the Dental Hygiene Program Director at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry.

I pride myself on staying current with the latest research in preventative oral health care. I enjoy the opportunity to help our patients understand why complete oral care is so beneficial to their overall health.

Registered Dental Hygienist, Hygiene Coordinator

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from The University of Michigan. I am licensed through the State of Michigan to administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. I have been treating patients at The Village Dentist in Canton since 2006. I am happy to be part of this amazing dental team.

I believe every patient is unique and should be treated as such. I continue to keep up with research developments, new dental treatment developments, and medicaments to provide the best insight for our patients’ overall health. 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.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I moved from Southern California to Michigan in 2015. I began working in the dental field in 2007 as a Dental Assistant then continued my education in Dental Hygiene at Baker College in Clinton Township, Michigan. I joined the Village Dentist team in 2020.

I take great pride in patient care and continuing education. I enjoy the relationships I form with each patient and providing them with exceptional care. When I am not at the office, I enjoy traveling with my husband, listening to music, and going to NASCAR races.

Read What Our Dental Patients Say

‘‘I feel appreciated as a customer when I come here and whichever hygienist I get takes great care of me and is responsive to any sensitivities I may have. Dr Van Hook has a great demeanor, and I trust his judgments. I have recommended this dentist office to several people who have become patients based on my recommendation, and they sent me small flower arrangements twice to say thank you.’’

- Elizabeth Q.

‘‘Excellent care and professionalism within this dental office. The office is in a converted old home in the Cherry Hill village that is simply beautiful, warm, and comfortable. The dental rooms are very relaxing, with multiple windows to the outside… The office is always clean. The hygienists are awesome. The staff is very friendly. For a great dental experience, I strongly recommend this dentist's office.’’

- Steven P.

‘‘Whenever we go for a cleaning or for dental work, my husband and I know that we will be treated professionally and always with patience and kindness. The staff is wonderful. From greeting you when you sign in to checking out, every step is handled with care and efficiency. We travel 50 minutes to get to their office and always find it well worth the trouble!’’
