Meet the girls

We are lucky to have this awesome team and are excited for you to know them too.

Taryn Johnson

Office Manager

This is Taryn! She's our office manager and deals with all of the claims and insurance- amongst other things. She has been in the dental field for about three years now, with some experience on Orthodontics. She has lived in Watford City for almost 10 years, but this community has always made her feel welcome and included. If Taryn isn't in the office on hold with insurance, you can find her out hunting with her boyfriend, reading a good book, or crafting at home. She is all about family and friends and enjoys the company of those around her. We're happy she brings her positive, and sometimes loud, vibes to our office!

Hannah Johnson

Dental Assistant

Meet Hannah!

Hannah graduated NDSCS in 2018 and became a registered dental assistant shortly after. She is originally from Bismarck, ND but moved to Watford City to be closer to her Fiance. She and her Fiance, Brandon, are busy planning a wedding for September of 2021. When she is not in the office, we know she's at home snuggling her sweet kitties. She also enjoys cooking and watching movies. 

 We are very fortuante to have Hannah's sweet and gentle demeanor in our office!

Kaylee Pontiff

Dental Assistant

Kaylee is originally from Houma, Louisiana, where she earned her certification for dental assisting. Kaylee has been in the dental field for 4 years. After moving to Watford City, Kaylee earned her qualification in dental assisting and certification in radiation.  She has experience in numerous areas of the dental office but we have been lucky to have her for 2 years as a dental assistant!

Kaylee admires Dr. Leila for her general practice that is performed daily, as well as the relationships she's formed with the rest of the girls in the office. Kaylee has a true passion for dentistry and it has really fueled her to further her own education to earn her own degree.

When Kaylee is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her Fiancé, Levi, and their two dogs, Sara and Luna. She loves the adventures of traveling to different states where she can experience all kinds of scenery and find new fun things to do!
