Account Manager

Hello! My name is Allison and I’m the Account Manager for both our Fargo and Grand Forks offices. I joined the team in 2012 as the Fargo office manager and I feel so blessed to be a part of this team. The best part about working here is the relationships I’ve made with both our amazing families and also our team members. It’s so rewarding to watch our patients grow in confidence from their first dental visit and then as they get more comfortable as they continue their dental journey. We have so much fun as a team and I enjoy each and every day at work.
 
When I’m not at work I spend my time with my husband, three amazing children, and our mischievous dog Sadie. We enjoy travelling, especially to the beach, trying delicious cuisine, and watching NFL football. I truly look forward to helping you in the future!

Bashaar

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello! My Name is Bashaar and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist here at Dakota Pediatric Dentistry! I graduated from MSCTC where I earned my associates in Dental Hygiene. I know that coming to the dentist for the first time can be intimidating for the little ones, so my goal is to give your child a safe, fun and comfortable experience in my chair.

kasey

Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Kasey and I am one of the Registered Dental Assistants here at Dakota Pediatric Dentistry! I am from Bemidji, Minnesota. After a year at NDSU (Go Bison!!), I transferred to MState in Moorhead where I earned my dental assisting degree. At the young age of 7, I became an aunt for the first time. Being an aunt taught me very early in life that I wanted to work with children. I am now a proud auntie of 8! Before I received my degree, I worked at a preschool and then at an after school program at an elementary school. In high school, I loved to volunteer with the special needs students and I also was an intern in our school's American Sign Language class. As someone who loved going to the dentist as a child, my hope is that all of my experiences help me to encourage your child to love coming to the dentist too!
