I have worked in the dental field for about a year now and I absolutely love it!I enjoy talking to people and helping them achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Outside of work I spend most of my time hunting and fishing with my boyfriend.I also love exploring the woods and finding cool treasures (some people call it junk). I’m a fur mom to a sassy, spoiled 3yr old named Timber and she is the light of my life!She makes any bad day better.One day I hope to have a house full of dogs and a farm with cows, pigs and goats.

Susan Sheldon
Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Johnson County Community College Dental Hygiene program in 1990 and have been practicing hygiene for most of the past 28 years. I love getting to know my patients and helping them with their unique dental needs. I have been amazed over the last 28 years by the studies that have shown just how much dental health and overall medical health are so closely related and interdependent on each other. The office atmosphere here at Drake Family Dentistry is one of a close knit group of dedicated and knowledgeable employees who are willing to work together to make each patients visit the best experience it can be. When I have free time, I love to read, do all sorts of crafting projects and spend time with family.
