Registered Dental Hygienist

Chris joined our team in 2015 after practicing for 30 years near Toledo.  Her past experiences helped reinforce and shape her convictions for comprehensive, individualized care.  She naturally brings a warm, calming nature to her patients.  Coming from an environment where she had to deal with today’s large practice challenges helps her bring a great deal of knowledge to our clinical staff.  Our practice is a welcome change for her as she and her spouse have chosen to settle in the area.  She has been certified to administer local anesthesia as part of her commitment to keep her patient’s comfortable!  

Chris and her spouse, Mark, were married in 2009.  They have two daughters, Ashley and Brittany, and a son, Nick.  They are all grown and happy homeowners.  In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her kids, going out on her lake in the family pontoon boat, traveling, gardening, and University of Michigan football.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Jennifer, born and raised in Pennsylvania, has recently joined our team. She graduated from college in 1996 and immediately started practicing as a dental hygienist. Employed in the same large, modern and busy practice for over 22 years, she has gained a tremendous amount of experience. During those years she built long term relationships with her patients and team. Her hopes are the build comparable relationships here at Brooklyn Family Dentistry. Dr. Jacob's welcoming office, similar to her previous office, has made the transition easier.

Jen and her husband relocated here after he received a promotion in his company. They have two boys, the oldest in college and the youngest in high school. They love the area and enjoy exploring Michigan. They have always been fans of the University of Michigan and are excited to be here. Go Blue!
