Meet The Staff



My name is Christina, I am the Financial, Insurance and Patient Care Coordinator for the office. I assist our patients with the coordination of their treatment, making sure they are aware of their co-pays and helping get the most of their insurance benefits. What I love about our practice is our patients, our entire team’s genuine approach to customer service and that we stay on the cutting edge of dental technology. I’m a new wife, soon to be first time mom and student. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling as much as possible to warm weather, to satisfy my internal beach bum nature.


Hi I’m Jamie, and am one of the assistants at Van Alstine Family Dentistry. For the past 10 years I have been assisting and part of the Van Alstine Family Dentistry team for 2 years. The best part of my job is working with our patients and helping them understand more about their dental needs. I am grateful to be part of this wonderful office. A native of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, my family has lived in this area for 2 1/2 years. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and watching our 5 very active children play sports.
