RENEE MEULENERS - Registered Dental Hygienist

Renee has been a Hygienist since receiving her Degree in 1981.  Prior to her employment with Strait Smiles, Renee has worked for Dr. Vern Trombley, DDS, Dr. Robert Miller, DDS, and Dr. George Riviere, DDS. To increase the level of patient care, Renee has attended many continuing education courses. Renee likes working at Strait Smiles because there is a balance of being very family orientated and at the same time, having a professional nature. Patients are treated with respect and care. Her favorite funny patient memory is about an elderly gentleman, who was a patient at Strait Smiles for years, who gave Renee the nickname “Scratch”. He would call her this name whenever he saw her.

Renee lives in rural Henderson with her husband Ron. They have four grown daughters, Alecia, Katelyn, Nora, and Janessa. Besides spending time with her wonderful daughters, Renee enjoys gardening and reading.

Dina has a passion for the dental field. She is committed to oral health and the well-being of the patients in her care. Her job with Straits Smiles is appealing because it is a family orientated office. The overall feeling at Strait Smiles is “they have state of the art technology with a small town feel.” Her co-workers are professional, efficient, and great to work with.

Dina is a resident of Maple Grove. She lives there with her husband, Tom and her school-age sons, Joe and Jonny.  Dina enjoys biking, camping, vacationing with family and friends, spending time with family, reading, exercising and cooking.
