Meet Our Dental Team

Our staff has been a part of Ridgeline Dental long enough to get to know all our regular patients. We are a close-knit team, and you'll notice that the person that treats you on your last visit will be the same person that treats you at your next visit.


Michelle has been Dr. Gissel’s main assistant since 2004. He considers her his 3rd and 4th hands and is the ‘go to’ person for anything in the clinical area. She is our resident dog/cat/horse whisperer, and also enjoys looking after the various wildlife with whom she and her husband share their backyard.


Erica has been ‘the voice of Dr Gissel’s office’ since 2005. If anyone can make visiting the dentist fun, it’s Erica. She is a multi-tasker extraordinaire and treats our patients like her best friends. The toddler and first grader she had when she joined us are now busy teenagers who keep her on her toes.


Chris joined us as full time hygienist in 2008. Being a ‘long-timer’ has allowed her to track the progress of her patients as she continues to help them keep a healthy mouth. She loves travelling, the outdoors and her family. Her daughters, husband and extended family keep her as busy on days off as she is at work.
