Jill Sullivan, Dental Assistant
I began as a dental assistant in May 2003 and have had the pleasure of sitting side by side with Dr. Ian since February, 2008. It is a joy to work with all of my teammates, who I consider my second family. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my 16-year old son, family, and friends. I am an avid sports fan so you will always catch me watching a game—especially hockey!

I have been with Modestow Family Dentistry since June 2013. I took night classes at Porter & Chester Dental Assisting Program and graduated in July 2013. I enjoy spending time with my family, whether it is fishing or hiking. I love being outdoors! I have a four-year old daughter, named Aralyn, and she is my pride and joy.

Michelle Kersbergen, Patient Care Coordinator
I have been working in the dental field in various capacities since 1996, and for Modestow Family Dentistry since 2000. The most enjoyable part has been working with our patients. My goal is to assist with navigating dental benefits to help patients find the most affordable treatment plan options, while offering the best dental care possible. I love the outdoors and enjoy it by cycling, cross-country skiing, and walking my 3 Bernese Mountain dogs.
