Meet Our Stillwater Team
Oksana was originally a registered nurse in Russia. Her first dental visit in the U.S. was surprisingly positive and anxiety-free, inspiring her to join the dental field. After completing the Century College hygiene program, Oksana evolved in her role at Stillwater Family Dental, and her favorite part of the job is our great patients!
As the office manager, Oksana works hard to educate our visitors, help reduce dental anxiety, and guide patients on their journey to improved oral health. She’s very driven and even in her downtime, you can find her helping out the hygienists or making patient calls at the front desk. Outside of the office, Oksana enjoys traveling with family, reading, yoga, and long walks.
Chrisy’s long-standing interest in dentistry led her to the patient coordinator position at Stillwater Family Dental. She’s a people person and loves getting to know and helping everyone who comes in.

Mia is a licensed dental assistant and worked chairside for years before becoming our patient coordinator. Her favorite part of the job is getting to build great relationships with our team and patients. Outside of the office, Mia enjoys attending her children’s activities and spending time at the family’s cabin up north. Her theme song is “Suntan, Sunburn, Sunset, Repeat.”
I live in Stillwater, but grew up in Lakeland. I have many friends that live in the St. Croix Valley. I love the St. Croix River and have a great interest in improving the water quality and the shoreline. I also enjoy neighborhood walks and winter skiing.
I chose dentistry because my mother was a dental hygienist in the early years of dental hygiene. I worked for a dental office in high school and enjoyed the work, I also felt that the dentists valued my mother’s position and her work. The best part of my job is being part of a health care team that believes oral health is a part of your total health.

Robin’s grandma inspired her to join the dental field; she’d wear her dentures only for pictures, and Robin was determined to make a difference.
