I'm Laurie, and I've had the pleasure of working with Dr Banda's team since 2013. I've been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 12 years, graduating from Oakland Community College in 2003. I live and grew up in Royal Oak, and enjoy working in the Oakland County area. As a child I had a wonderful dentist who sparked my interest in Dentistry by making everything a fun, positive learning experience, which is always what I strive to bring to my patients. When I'm not working, I'm enjoying my husband of 8 years, our 2 labs, our 5 year old niece, and just being with family.
Marilyn is a R.N. assistant with Dr. William Cheslin. She joined him and his former colleagues 32 years ago at their oral and maxillofacial office while working in the office and hospital operating room. Marilyn attended St. Olaf College, MN, Chicago Wesley Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University, receiving both her R.N. and B.S.N degrees. Her experience includes hospital floor nursing followed by teaching in schools of nursing in the Detroit and Chicago areas.
Marilyn’s mission is to be a caring, understanding, and informative professional to many patients who often approach their oral surgery needs with anxiety and fear. She genuinely enjoys providing each patient with vision, knowledge, and ways they can comprehensively improve their healing and their health. She says that Lisa Foster has been an exceptional teammate in fulfilling this mission in oral surgery.
Loni is a compassionate person who enjoys caring for others. She graduated from Oakland Community College in 2013 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. She is also licensed in local anesthetic and nitrous oxide administration. Loni is a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association and stays current with new developments through continuing education courses. In her spare time, she loves spending time with family, friends, and her fiancé; they’re getting married this year!
Lisa is a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a dog lover, and an experienced dental and oral surgery assistant. Some of her best qualities are her love of patient care; her cheerful, fun disposition; and her skills in mechanical reasoning and dexterity, as well as her gentle touch. Lisa has a tremendous appreciation and scrutiny for fine dentistry, as well as a great understanding of how the dynamic system of the mouth functions. She says that you definitely want all of the members of our staff on your team when it comes to your oral surgery and personal, comprehensive dental needs.
Our entire team receives ongoing re-certification in BLS (Basic Life Support), which involves CPR and other emergency training. Dr. Banda is certified in ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support).
