Annie Syversen, Lead 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.
