Marissa - Dental Hygienist
Marissa is a SANDITE!! She was born and raised in Sand Springs where she graduated from Charles Page High School, then attended TCC for her degree in dental hygiene. She’s been in the dental field for several years with a range of responsibilities and knowledge.
In her free time, you will find her outdoors hiking, kayaking, biking or walking her Ausiedoodle, Indy. Marissa also loves to travel. Make sure to ask her about her trips Germany and Italy when in the office and about her future plans to visit New Zealand!
Marissa and her family have been long time patients of Dr. Whitney, so she understands the level of care our patients know they will receive when in the office. We feel especially blessed that she chose to not only be our patient, but a team member! Marissa is so excited to be working in her hometown, the community she loves!
Lisa and Sierra - Dental Assistants
Lisa brings over 30 years of dental knowledge to our practice. Detailed oriented, organized and efficient are just some of her strengths. Lisa joined our team in November of 2020 and all who have met her, absolutely love her just like the rest of our team! Lisa began her career as a Dental Assistant in 1984, graduating from Bryan Institute. She has worked in almost every avenue of dentistry. She is married and has 3 boys, 2 still living at home. She took a break to be home with her boys in their adolescent years, but knew dentistry is where her heart would lead when the time was right for her family. Lisa and her family are very involved with their church and baseball. Her free time is spent going to or preparing for the next baseball game, and occasionally has the opportunity to read a good book. The best thing about working for Sand Springs Family Dentistry (besides making temporaries), is “getting to know our patients and helping them feel at ease during their dental visit”, says Lisa. We can’t wait for you to meet her!!
Sierra joined our team in June of this year, but has jumped right in and it feels as if she has been with us all along. Sierra started her dental assisting career three years ago and within the last year has began to work with insurance verification and filing. Sierra is a 2013 graduate of Mannford High School. The best thing about Sand Springs Family Dentistry is we serve more than just Sand Springs, and we love that Sierra has the ability to connect with all our patients, no matter if they are Mannford Pirates, Cleveland Tigers or Sandites. She truly has a passion to be involved in the community and serve others both inside and outside the office. Sierra enjoys helping patients overcome their fear of the dentist and teaching them about cavity prevention and oral health. Wherever you may see her in the office, she will greet you with a smile and make you feel right at home! On Sierra’s free time, her and her husband Christian are busy raising (can chasing) their 4 year old son Camden...he keeps them on their toes!

She lives in Sand Springs with her husband Travis, and 2 children Avery and Easton.

Becky truly enjoys being the first person our patients meet, welcoming them to our practice and making sure they have a complete understanding of their insurance benefits and the services we offer. You can ask her anything... she will find your answer, she’s a problem solver! “It’s like the best of both worlds; working in dentistry AND in the town that is so close to my heart!”
When Becky isn’t at work, you will find her at a sporting event supporting her children or you will find her...let’s just be honest, she’s always at a sports event!
