Claire has been a member of the Distinctive Dental Solutions team since 2007, but she started her training for this position long before that. Claire studied Hospitality and Management at Purdue Calumet and during her time in college she maintained a job at the Radisson working weekends as a food runner and weekday mornings at The Radisson as a waitress serving the needs of the business, but even more important to her was serving the public. A professor recommended she move from what she was doing and move to the financial side of the hospitality business as it was where she showed a clear ability in the classroom.
Dawn was born and raised in Crown Point, Indiana, so she has been able to see the growth of our “small town” first hand. While it is not the several stop light, no traffic bedroom town it once was, she feels that it is better now with diversity, business-driven growth, but it is still a great place to call home. She relates this growth of her home town to that seen at Distinctive Dental Solutions in her time as an employee.
Misty lives in Crown Point with her husband of 20 years and they have two children together. They have lived in Crown Point since 2002 and love calling Crown Point their home. Her daughter will be attending Ball State University in the fall of 2019 and her youngest attends Taft Middle School.

She attended Indiana University in Bloomington and received her Dental Hygiene degree from Indiana University Northwest.
