Mari - Appointment Coordinator/Dental Assistant
I graduated from Delta College's dental assisting program 30+ years ago. Since that time I have worked in many offices in various positions from assisting to office manager and financial assistant. I have been employed with Dr. Paxson since 2004 and have enjoyed working with the staff and helping the patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

Kim - Dental Hygienist
I graduated in 1978 from Mott Community College in Flint as a Dental Hygienist.  I have worked full time for the past 33 years in the Flint area. For the past six years I have been substituting as a dental hygienist for over fifty dental offices in the surrounding area. I substituted for Dr. Paxson in the recent past and when an opening became available to work here, I accepted the position as a full time hygienist.  I am married with two grown children.

Karen - Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Delta College with an Associates Degree in Applied Science and received my dental hygiene license in May 2010.  I have been working part time here at Dr. Paxson's office since February 2011.  I have been married to my husband Scott for nineteen years and we have two beautiful daughters, Makenzie and Madison.  I love working as an RDH  and my goal is to involve and motivate my patients in preventing dental disease through education.  I am blessed to be part of an amazing team that cares about every patient and strives to bring awareness that dental health is an important part of the whole body!

Amy - Certified Dental Assistant
I started dental assisting in 1993, after receiving my certification from Coastal Carolina College in Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm very happy to have found Dr. Paxson whom I respect and am proud to work for. I've been here since 2005. I like the sincerity, knowledge and dedication each one of us brings to work each day. I also, enjoy meeting and making the patients here happy and comfortable with their smiles.

Caitlin - Registered Dental Assistant
I was introduced to the dental field working as a co-op student in high school.  I worked part time in an office here in Saginaw and it sparked my interest in Dentistry.  In August 2011, I enrolled in Delta College's Dental Assisting Program where I eventually interned at Dr. Paxson's Office.  I graduated Delta College with an Associates Degree and received my Registered Dental Assisting License.  Shortly after my internship I was hired here and officially began my career as a Registered Dental Assistant.  I have learned a great deal in my time at the office and am looking forward to helping provide our patients with excellent dental care.
