Meet Our Team

April Crunk - Office AdministratorApril Crunk Office Administrator

"Working "behind the scenes", gives me the opportunity to observe how each team member interacts with their patient. It is very special to me knowing that our employees not only take care of their patients, but also take care of my husband!

Each person that walks through the practice door has something in common with each of us - we've all sat in the dental chair! Because of this, we know how important it is to be made to feel comfortable and put at ease. One simply will not find another practice that is as caring as ours!"

April joined her husband's practice in 2006. She enjoys running, teaching yoga. and spending time with her boys, Evan and Jake.

"Ben is my best friend, so being with him is always a privilege!"

Erin - Dental HygienistErin - Registered Dental Hygienist & Dental Assistant

"What I love about dentistry is knowing that I am providing a service that not only helps with a person's oral health, but also helps with their overall health. I think our practice is really special; we have a very generous, caring team and our patients' needs and concerns are very important to us.

One of my favorite experiences was working with a patient that came in to see us after several years of not visiting the dentist. She was very fearful, and thought her situation was hopeless. It was an emotional moment seeing her relief and joy when she learned that her teeth could be saved and she could have a beautiful smile again."

Erin has been in dentistry since 2004, when she joined our practice. In addition to being a licensed Dental Hygienist, Erin holds a B.S. degree in Biology. Erin's versatility as both Dental Assistant and Dental Hygienist helps keep us running smoothly, and our patients instantly trust her kind spirit and caring approach. At home, Erin enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband and two-year-old son.

Melissa - Patient CareMelissa - Patient Care Coordinator

"My time at Dr. Crunk's began as a patient. Even though I was nervous when I came to the dentist, I always had a great experience here because Dr. Crunk and his staff did everything they could to make me feel comfortable and treated me with the best of care. That is why I am so excited to join Dr. Crunk's team. The entire staff is like a big family with everyone genuinely concerned about each other's lives.

I believe my background in retail and office administration has prepared me for this job because I know how important customer service is. I am a people person and I look forward to meeting all of our patients and helping them feel good about their smiles when they leave and helping them to maintain good dental health care at home."

Melissa joined our practice in January 2012. With her easy-going attitude and commitment to exceptional customer service, we know she will be a valuable asset to our team. She lives in Thorsby with her husband and they enjoy spending time with their 18 grandchildren and 5 great-grandkids. They also enjoy spending summers on the lake.

Kim - Dental HygienistKim - Registered Dental Hygienist

"We are all one big family and we want our patients to feel the same way. It is important to us that they feel at home while in our office - we love to show them just how comfortable dentistry can be!

I truly enjoy being a part of the education process with my patients; it means a lot to me when I can help people take better care of themselves. Many people are not aware that their oral health is linked to their overall physical health; it's never too late to work on getting your smile healthy.

We try to offer our patients a lot of encouragement and support about coming to the dentist; we want them to look forward to seeing us!"
