I have been working with Dr. Herrero and our wonderful staff since 2015. I began as a front desk receptionist, which evolved to Patient Care Coordinator and, ultimately, Office Manager. I currently work in my capacity as manager to run the office as effectively and efficiently as possible for the best patient care and staff ability. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Business and Psychology from Alma College and my Master's Degree in Business Administration at Walsh College.
I spend my free time with my wonderful family. My husband and I live in Howell with our two amazing baby boys (#twinahans) George and Brinton, and our three adorable dogs, Lincoln, Dori, and Oakley.
Sarah Hermans, CDA, RDH
I have been with Dr. Alberto A. Herrero since I graduated from the Oakland Community College dental hygiene program in 2011. I have been in the dental profession since I graduated from the dental assisting program at Washtenaw Community College in 2003. I am licensed in local anesthesia and nitrous oxide administration. I love dentistry and working with the latest technology at Dr. Alberto A. Herrero’s office. My patients’ comfort during dental treatment and their oral health are of utmost importance to me.
I reside in Dexter with my husband and our two sons, born in 2009 and 2013. In my spare time, I like to work out, go to the movies, and spend quality time with my family.
Chelsea Bissell, RDH
I have happily been a dental hygienist at Dr. Alberto A. Herrero’s office since 2013. I required a plethora of dental work as a child and spent a great deal of time in dental offices. As a result, I knew I wanted to be a hygienist from the age of sixteen. I attended the University of Michigan to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene and remain active in my profession through the American Dental Hygienist Association and Washtenaw District Dental Hygienists’ Society. I feel great empathy towards my patients and strive to provide the most compassionate and comfortable care possible.
I currently live in South Lyon and have recently begun working to increase my health through road biking on South Lyon’s many bike trails.
Hebe Ormsby, Front-Desk Receptionist
I have been enjoying my time with Dr. Herrero beginning in the start of 2019 as a front-desk receptionist. My time leading up to working with him, I obtained my degree in 3D Animation from Washtenaw Community College, whilst working as an English Tutor and Teacher’s Assistant. I thoroughly love interacting with patients in order to get to know them more, on top of, addressing and answering any questions they may have regarding their oral health. It is my strong belief and striving goal to spread happiness to those I meet and may meet in the future.
I currently live in the Ypsilanti area with my fiancé, Spencer, and our cat, named Milk. My favorite pastimes include; modeling 3D assets, binge-watching my beloved television series, discovering good food places, and spending time with my loved ones.
