Emily

Emily

Registered Dental Hygienist

From a young age, Emily knew she wanted to go into a profession in the dental field. After a lengthy (and completely avoidable) experience in the dental chair as a child, Emily knew she would do whatever possible to take the best care of her oral health. After positive follow-up dental appointments, this led to Emily wanting to help others have positive dental experiences, also. A Johnson County Community College Dental Hygiene graduate, Emily does her best to provide a positive dental experience for all ages. She is gentle but thorough and educates her patients about improving their oral health without demeaning them or boring them with a lecture. She brings positive energy and an optimistic attitude to the practice every day!

Emily likes to spend time with her husband Austin and her daughters, Ali and Cora. She likes to spend as much time as possible outside and continuing her dental hygiene education with continuing education courses.


Andrea

Andrea

Chairside Dental Assistant

Andrea has been involved in the dental field for most of her life. Starting out with an after-school job working in her father’s orthodontic practice, she stayed there through high school and continued while earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from Kansas State University (proof that Baldwin City Dental is an Equal Opportunity Employer!). Andrea’s role in the practice is to ensure every patient’s comfort and to help Dr. Leiszler deliver the highest quality in each and every procedure.

Andrea and her husband then moved to the Vinland area after college to raise their family. After working for the Baldwin school district for several years, Andrea decided to return to the field that she started many years earlier. Andrea, her husband Matt, and their two daughters Ella and Nina enjoy living in the country. Raising chickens, gardening, reading, and spending time with family are all the things that make living in Kansas wonderful!

Beth

Beth

Beth, one of our dental hygienists, started her dental journey long before coming to our office. Her uncle was her dentist growing up, and while she began her studies in dental assisting, she loved dentistry so much that she switched to dental hygiene. Beth is genuine, kind, and truly cares about her patients. Her goal is to be someone they look forward to seeing and around whom they feel safe and well care for.

Beth has a daughter who means the world to her. They love to craft, spend time outdoors, listen to live music, and camp. She’s also a die-hard Kansas City Chiefs fan, loves spending time with her family, and participates in charitable dental events as well.
