Brenda

Dental Hygienist

“I love seeing different people throughout the day, catching up on what’s happening in their lives, and brightening up their smiles. It’s a great feeling to wake up excited to come to Peosta Dental; we have an amazing team and Dr. Reed is a gentle, attentive doctor.”

Brenda works one-to-one with patients to provide a range of preventive and maintenance care. In addition to gentle and thorough cleanings, she offers a lot of education. She teaches patients why it’s important to care for their oral health and how to keep their smiles clean and bright.

Outside of work, Brenda and her husband Jeremy’s three daughters keep them very busy. When she can make time for herself, Brenda enjoys reading, running, and traveling.


 

Alesha

Expanded Functions Registered Dental Assistant

“Working with our patients is one of the best parts of my job. I love getting to know them, learning about their lives, and seeing them smile at the end of their appointments.”

Alesha has been assisting Dr. Reed during procedures since 2009, when she graduated from the dental assisting program at Northeast Iowa Community College. She helps to make sure that everything Dr. Reed needs for a procedure is readily at hand, but her focus is always on the patients: ensuring that they are comfortable and informed about their treatment.

Alesha and her husband Brian have been married since 2013. She has two children, Jaxon and Averie. In her spare time, Alesha loves cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Chicago Cubbies!


 

Alysia

Expanded Functions Registered Dental Assistant

“I love working with people and getting to know them during visits. It’s rewarding to build real connections while helping people improve their smile! At Peosta Dental, we all truly care about patient comfort and are a close-knit team, supporting each other to keep our patients smiling.”

Alysia seats patients, prepares them for their procedure, and explains what will happen. During the treatment, she works chairside, to assist Dr. Reed and see to it that the patient is relaxed and comfortable. When finished, she talks with the patients about home care and checks that they’re happy with the procedure.

Family is very important to Alysia. She and her husband Jeremy have two daughters. They enjoy their time together and love traveling and being outdoors.


 

Lynn

Expanded Functions Registered Dental Assistant

“I look forward to seeing patients, reconnecting with established patients, and meeting new ones. I work hard to keep everyone comfortable during procedures and love their smiles when they’re done! Dr. Reed and my coworkers are friendly and kind, and they keep our patients smiling.”

Lynn brings patients into the treatment area, makes sure they’re comfortable in the chair, and prepares them to see Dr. Reed. Working chairside, she assists the doctor with the procedure while talking with the patient about what they’re doing. When everything’s finished, Lynn offers home care instructions and answers any questions the patient might have.

When she’s not working, Lynn enjoys time with her family. She and her husband Alan, who was her high-school sweetheart, have been married for almost 30 years. They have two sons, Tyler and Trevor, and one grandchild, Kash. Lynn and Alan enjoy camping, four-wheeling, and spending time with their family.


 

DeLila

Office Manager and Expanded Functions Registered Dental Assistant

“I am glad to see our patients’ satisfaction, and their pleased smiles, as a result of the care they receive at Peosta Dental. Ours is a knowledgeable and helpful team, all committed to caring for patients like family. We work together to keep our patients’ smiles healthy.”

DeLila keeps our practice running smoothly, so patients have stress-free visits. She handles everything from scheduling appointments to reviewing treatment plans with patients. She also helps patients with billing and insurance matters.

When she’s not at work, much of DeLila’s time is spent with her family. She and her husband Jamie have three children — Johnny, Victoria, and Andrew — as well as two dogs, Auggi and Ollie. DeLila tries to find time to be outdoors, fishing and hiking, and loves to read a wide range of genres and authors.


 

Cathy

“I love interacting with our patients. It’s fun to hear their stories, learn about their families, and be part of their lives. Dr. Reed and everyone at Peosta Dental is professional and kind. They want what’s best for our patients and keep people smiling during visits!”

Cathy works in our front office, where she takes care of a range of tasks. She reviews treatment plans with patients, verifies insurance benefits, helps with paperwork, handles billing, and schedules visits.

The best part of Cathy’s day is time with her family and being a grandma. She’s been married for more than 30 years and has three daughters and three terrific sons-in-law.
