Office Manager

I grew up in Fort Shaw and graduated from Simms High School. I have been with Hays Dental Group, LLC since 2005, and I enjoy working with our extremely caring doctors and our friendly team. Hays Dental Group, LLC is my home away from home. My goal as the office manager is to give supreme customer service to all patients I come in contact with. I enjoy working with all of our patients, especially when I get to see some extreme patient transformations – literally, frowns get turned upside down. That, along with being able to work for extremely caring doctors and a friendly team, is why I love it here! I have three very active boys who play sports all year round. When we are not traveling for hockey, football, wrestling and baseball, we enjoy camping, working in the yard and relaxing (when we can).


Hygiene Insurance Coordinator

I was born and raised in Montana. I have worked at Hays Dental Group, LLC since 2019, but I have been in the dental field since 1994. I attended Clover Park Technical College and received my dental assistant certificate. One of my favorite parts about working at Hays Dental Group, LLC is that we all feel like family. Everyone works together as a team. During my experience in the dental field, I have worked in both the front and back offices; this allows me to better explain treatments to my patients and help them feel at ease about their dental care. I am glad to be part of a practice that takes pride in creating a great patient experience. My husband, David, and I recently moved to a beautiful new home near the Jefferson River. We have two dogs and one cat. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, canning, motorcycling and enjoying all that Montana has to offer.


Finance Manager

I was born in San Diego, California, but spent my high school years in the small rural town of Gildford, Montana. I started at Hays Dental Group, LLC in March of 2022 and have really enjoyed working with our staff. The Hays Dental Group, LLC team really is a family and works together as such. We have such amazing, detail-oriented providers who very clearly strive to give our patients the best care possible from the time they walk in to the time they leave. My dog, Athena, and I love to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful scenery Montana has to offer. I also enjoy spending time with my best friend, Lauryn, seen below.

I am a full-time student at Montana State University studying early childhood P-2 education and special education. I will graduate in May of 2024 with my bachelor’s degree, and then I will start my master’s in August of 2024. I love Hays Dental because we have all become a family. Every single person can walk by the desk and put a smile on my face. I love all our patients and our conversations we have either over the phone, when they check in or out, or when I see them outside the office. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family (especially my niece and nephew) and my friends. I also enjoy relaxing (when I am not in school) and doing homework (when I am in school). My favorite season is summer, so you will see me near a body of water a lot. My best friend, Karalyn, also works here and she will be pictured up above. I am so happy I am able to help each and every one of you!

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Mindy. I have been with The Hays Dental Group since August of 2021. I was born and raised in Elkhart, Indiana and moved to Montana in May of 2017. After four years of being a laborer for an electrical company, I decided it was time to change careers and got into the dental field. I was amazed by all the parts to a single tooth structure there were and was fascinated with all things dental. The Hays Dental Group welcomed me with open arms and treated me like family from the start. One of my favorite things at HDG is watching our team build relationships with our patients and making sure they are comfortable throughout treatment. It’s amazing to see how much of an impact we can have on our patients to help them feel at ease with treatment. In my free time, I love staying active outdoors, gold panning with my husband, interior painting, and playing with my dogs and six nieces.
