Angela Wubben, Office Manager & Patient Care Coordinator

MINT* Dental Studio’s very own self-professed coffee enthusiast; Angela grew up in Glendive, MT. She came to Bozeman to attend Montana State University, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Biomedical option, graduating with Highest Honors. Also while at MSU, Angela participated in undergraduate research projects in the Bioinformatics laboratory. Angela has also completed her Certified Professional Coder (CPC) certification.

Angela met her husband at the Three Forks Rodeo and they reside in Clarkston, where they raise wheat, barley, and cattle. And if ranch living is not enough to occupy their day, Angela and her husband are busy trying to corral their son Kal, daughter Kailee and their Blue Tick Hound mix Daisy. In her spare time, Angela also enjoys camping trips, hunting and archery, reading, singing (yes, that includes karaoke!), and did we mention, coffee?

Annie_Syverson

Annie Syversen, Patient Care Coordinator

A true Butte, American: Annie moved to Minnesota in her teens, but that couldn’t keep her away for long. A graduate of St. Cloud University, St. Cloud, MN, with a Bachelor of Elective Studies and a minor in Early Childhood Education, Annie is happy to finally be back in Montana so she can be closer to her family, and to be part of our wonderful Bozeman community.

Annie’s experience at MINT* has shown her what a positive impact good dental health can have on a person, and enjoys working for an office that is up-to-date (with technology and dental care). She loves that Dr. Tanguay and Dr. Hollern are both active with outreach projects in the community and they are always willing to support local businesses in Bozeman. And she also enjoys the ability to work with a wide range of patients (from babies to adult).

When she’s not working with Mint* patients, Annie enjoys camping, fly-fishing, snowboarding and adventuring around the beautiful state of MT with her husband, son and their dog, Alice.

Brandi_Wilkinson

Brandi Wilkinson, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Brandi hails from beautiful Sidney, Montana. She left the Treasure State to earn her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming and complete her dental hygiene training through Sheridan Community College. Now at home in Bozeman, she loves working at MINT* because of her fantastic coworkers and boss. She wholeheartedly stands behind the office’s conservative approach to dentistry and appreciates the MINT* commitment to treating only what is necessary.

A true Montana girl, Brandi enjoys her free days outdoors, hiking, biking, kayaking, fishing, and doing everything in between. She has a passion for old treasures, and spends her days thrifting and antiquing, and her nights repurposing and crafting. Norma Jean, a yorkie-schnauzer mix, and Yeti, a golden retriever, keep her company.

Britney

Britney Chase, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

After growing up in Fairfield, Montana, a tiny town of just 700 people, Britney earned her Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene from Montana State University in Great Falls. As a hygienist at MINT*, she loves the positive environment and her friendly colleagues, and finds fulfillment in helping a broad spectrum of patients!

Being raised in the Treasure State fostered a love of the great outdoors, where Britney enjoys snow shoeing and hiking. When not busy taking good care of MINT* patients’ pearly whites, she thrives on spending time with her family—a husband, daughter, and two dogs named Boone and Nala.

Kirsten Peterson, CDA, Clinical Manager

As a member of the MINT* team most likely to sport a Cheese-Head, Kirsten grew up in Stoughton, WI, where good times were spent with family cheering on the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers! Kirsten arrived in Bozeman after graduating from high school and received her certification in Dental Assisting and CDA, from Assist to Succeed Dental Training program.

Now one of MINT*’s biggest fans, Kirsten appreciates working with all of her great patients and co-workers, and the unique and refreshing look of the dental office is a plus! Kirsten loves being in Bozeman, and depending on the season, Kirsten likes to hike, fish, or go hunting with her husband, Josh. Besides being an excellent cook, Kirsten also enjoys travel (when she gets the chance), but mostly she loves watching her children, Madisyn, Brody and Brooks, learn something new everyday!

McCaela Mitman

McCaela Mitman, Dental Assitant

McCaela moved from her home in Florence, Montana, to Bozeman, where she works hard as a student of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Montana State University. She hopes to translate her love of both science and people into a career as a dentist, so MINT* is a perfect fit for her—and it doesn’t hurt that she thinks the rest of the staff is fantastic!

McCaela is a nature lover; hiking, camping, and fishing in the beautiful outdoors comprise a few of her hobbies outside of work. Her canine companion, Rugby, accompanies her on many adventures. Her pet snake, Kennedy, holds down the fort at home.

Sydney Judd, Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Sydney is a true Bozemanite, having grown up here. She left Montana for a spell to study at Sheridan College in Wyoming, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree through the University of Wyoming. Now happily resettled back in her beloved hometown, she thoroughly enjoys her job at MINT* because of her sincere fondness for both her coworkers and the patients. Bozeman, she says, is full of very nice people.

Outside of work, Sydney is a musician who loves making songs with her family and playing golf with her husband, Jarod. She and Jarod have a spunky and sweet daughter named Sawyer. A pair of dogs—a yellow lab named Luther and an Australian shepherd/border collie mix named Mack—complete their family.
