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 Brighton with our two amazing 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 practiced clinical dental hygiene for nearly a decade. I attended the University of Michigan to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene and began working with Dr. Herrero on day one of my licensure in 2013. I share Dr. Herrero's commitment to lifelong learning and the utilization of current evidence-based practices and technology. I pursued this passion for clinical research at Ohio State University, where I earned a Master of Clinical Research degree in 2022.
I dedicated myself to the career of dental hygiene at the young age of fifteen after a lifetime of intensive dental treatment. As a result, I demonstrate exceptional empathy and patience for patients with anxiety, dental fear, and need of extensive treatment. I strive to provide the most compassionate and comfortable care possible to aid my patients in the maintenance of their dental health.
I live in Brighton with my husband, Matt, and two cats, Snow and Jasper. In my free time is spent writing, reading, kayaking, camping, and enjoying videogames.

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Herrero and the team since March of 2021 as a front-desk receptionist. I graduated from Cornerstone University in 2017 with my degree in Photography, and currently have a small photography business on the side.
I live in the Saline area with my husband, and we are expecting our first baby in September! In my spare time, I enjoy anything outdoors: kayaking, gardening and camping. I also love baking and spending time with family and friends.
