Meet Dr. Sam LaChance

Dr. LaChance grew up in a Northern Wisconsin town that borders the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He later attended The University of Wisconsin-Madison for college. In 2003, he married his wife, Claire, whom he’d known since they were teenagers competing on the same water ski show team. Shortly after, he and Claire moved to Twin Cities for graduate school. Dr. LaChance graduated from dental school at the University of Minnesota in 2007 and spent the next twelve years working in a group practice in St. Paul. Dr. LaChance has served a wide variety of dental community roles as a board member and head of the education committee for the St. Paul Executive Council, treasurer of the St. Paul District Dental Society, and as a host to shadowing experiences for pre-dental students from the University of St. Thomas, University of Minnesota, and dental assisting students from local community colleges. In 2015, he was awarded the “New Dentist Leadership Award” by the Minnesota Dental Association at the Star of the North Dental Convention. Dr. LaChance also volunteers for Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, and the Hope Dental Clinic.

In his free time, he enjoys biking and fishing with his two daughters, traveling with his family, watching Bob Ross paint, and golfing or fly-fishing. He looks forward to meeting you!

Cece B. – Treatment Coordinator

Cece grew up in New York City, but now calls Minnesota home. She has been working in the dental field since 2016 and you can find her at the front of the office, ready to answer your questions about insurance, billing, and appointment scheduling. Her favorite TV show is Bob’s Burgers and a variety of Netflix originals. Cece loves to vacation—her favorite destination is the Bahamas. She is an avid New York Knicks and New York Jets fan and spends her spare time with her family, traveling, and cooking.

Krystal S. – Treatment Coordinator

Krystal is one of the Treatment Coordinators at Greenway Dental. She is at the front desk to greet new patients and families, schedule appointments, and make sure each visit is a pleasant experience for you and your family. She is available to serve all of your insurance needs from verifying and maximizing your benefits to helping you understand how they will work together. Krystal is dedicated to helping every patient become comfortable with their treatment plan and making you feel like part of the Greenway Dental family. Outside of work, Krystal enjoys practicing photography, gardening, reading, and spending time at the lake with her family. She currently resides in Blaine with her husband and three wonderful daughters.

Jaynessa C. – Lead Dental Hygienist

Jaynessa, or Nessa, is our lead Dental (hygenius) Hygienist! She has over 7 years of clinical dental experience and is passionate about patient-based oral empowerment—it’s your mouth and you have the right to make an educated decision! Affiliated with various humanitarian organizations, she also has a Bachelor of Science and holds a Dental Hygiene License by the Minnesota State Board of Dentistry. Jaynessa has had the opportunity to work with diverse patient groups, and has volunteered her skills in multiple countries. She would love the opportunity to get to know your story, and hopefully share a laugh over some dry dental jokes!

When she is not at the office, Jaynessa enjoys kayaking, listening to live music, and trying out new recipes. Being that she is a local (she lives in the neighborhood!), she is passionate about giving back to the community and embracing unique Twin Cities’ experiences.

Katie M. – Dental Assistant

Katie grew up in Mankato where she went to South Central College and graduated with an associate’s degree in dental assisting. She loves doing all aspects of dentistry and continuing to learn expanded skills. Katie loves getting to know patients and help give them the best care they deserve.

Katie lives in Saint Louis Park with her fiancé, Derek, and their two cats, Booger and Marylin. When not at the office, Katie loves cooking, baking, and reading fantasy/sci-fi books. She is a diehard US men’s volleyball fan and has traveled to Chicago and Dallas to watch them play.
