Idaho Falls DentistryLatesha

I grew up in the small town of Ririe, Idaho.  I started working for Dr. Heninger as a dental assistant back in 2001.  In 2008, I moved to the front office to help out with the business side of dentistry.  I am married and have three children.  I enjoy camping, snowboarding, going on vacations, and spending time with my family.

Idaho Falls DentistryCrystal

I was born and raised here in Idaho Falls and love this area!  I began my dental career as a dental assistant in 2008 and started working at the front desk in 2015.  I truly enjoy the dental field and helping patients with their dental needs.  I am married and have the cutest little three-year-old boy!  He brings us more happiness than we ever thought possible.  Most of my spare time is spent with family.  I love to travel and have so many places on my bucket list that I hope to see someday!  Everyone in the office knows the place I love to visit most is Disney World, I think it’s the secret to staying young!

Dental Hygienists

Hygienists provide education and care of teeth for decay prevention. They perform thorough cleanings to prevent periodontal disease and tooth loss. Hygienists also keep patients informed on the latest oral health care techniques and products. Our hygienists also assist patients in understanding diagnosis and treatment options for their teeth and soft tissues.  Our hygienists are friendly, helpful, and ready to answer any question you may have about your oral health.

Idaho Falls DentistryConnie

I am a full-time registered Dental Hygienist, with 18 years experience. I received my Bachelors of Science Degree from ISU, which has a highly accredited dental hygiene program. For the past 4 years I have worked in Dr. Heninger’s office and have truly loved my experience here.  Dr. Heninger’s patients and his modern state of the art office make my days very enjoyable.  With digital x-rays and paperless charts, I have more time to spend with my patients. Providing the absolute best care possible for my patients has always remained my primary goal as a hygienist. I really love my job.

I am a people person with excellent clinical skill and a gentle touch.  I am an Idaho native with 3 children. My hobbies for now consist of taxiing my kids around between schools, ballparks or gymnasiums, but I do enjoy camping, fly-fishing and gardening when time allows.

Dr. Heninger provides  excellent quality dental care and cosmetic dentistry. He is very good with patients of any age.  Many of his patients are long term patients who have come to trust him and his work. We truly do have a great thing going here.

Idaho Falls DentistryTaneal

I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2011.  I enjoy the opportunities to build relationships and connect with patients.  I am married and have two kids who are very talented and outgoing.  Our family hobbies include camping, hunting and fishing, riding dirt bikes and ATV’s, snowmobiling, and basketball.  I have enjoyed my dental hygiene career so far, and look forward to learning and growing in the profession.

Dental Assistants

Our dental assistants work chair-side to assist the Doctor and the Hygienist with all dental procedures.  All of our assistants are proficient in assisting with the computer systems and taking digital x-rays. Our assistants also utilize the most up to date sterilization procedures, take regular courses in the latest dental procedures and materials and do everything possible to make your visit more comfortable.

Our assistants are happy to answer any questions you have about procedures and your treatment.

Idaho Falls DentistrySheila

I became a certified dental assistant 30 years ago. I enjoy this type of work because I truly enjoy working with people.  I guess you could call me a people person.  I have worked with Dr. Heninger for over 20 years now and couldn’t work with a more qualified dentist who truly cares about his patients.
I was born and raised here in Idaho Falls. I am married and have 3 children and 2 beautiful grandchildren.
I really enjoy being in the outdoors. My favorite pastime is going to the mountains with my husband and exploring the back country in our Jeep. I also love to go camping, hunting and hiking. I love to be creative and crafty with my hands, I guess that is why I have loved being a dental assistant for all these years.

Idaho Falls DentistryGalene

I started on my path in 1995 working as a model tech for a dental lab, where I loved learning about dentistry.  I worked as an assistant for an orthodontist for 5 years and loved working with the kids and seeing changes in their self-esteem and health.  I next had an opportunity to work in the oral surgery field, and loved that even more!  I was BLS & ACLS trained & earned my certification for an oral surgery assistant.  I loved every minute of my 8 years there.  In 2010, I had an opportunity to work as an assistant for my very own dentist.  I loved the feeling of clean teeth and how I was treated not only as a patient for 28 years, but as a valued friend. Yep, I’m still here loving my patients and friends.
