Raeann joined Trinity as the new executive director this past October. She is most excited to serve our patients at Trinity and be a small part of patients finding dental healing and reforming their dental wellness. A fun fact about Raeann is that she used to be a competitive rower in her youth and got to compete on retired Olympic race courses. Raeann is excited for the journey ahead and getting to provide this critical dental care to our community.
Melody has now been serving patients at Trinity for 13 years. Melody loves being involved with Trinity and the denture program especially because she gets to see patients get their smiles back.
Melody is also a single mom of an almost 9 year old child and will be welcoming her second child soon. Melody has two dogs and a cat. Melody also loves to collect shoes.
Diane Landers has been a board member for many years and loves how Trinity displays the love of Christ to others while helping them with their dental needs. Diane was the Executive Director of the Second District Dental Association for many years when she actively supported charitable clinics in our area connected with Dentists to serve at their agencies. One fun thing to know about Diane is that she loves to water ski and hike!
