Hygiene Assistant / Front Desk

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.  Dawn started at Distinctive Dental in 2008 and has seen the office physical plant grow in size, the number of patients in the office grow with it, and has been a part of the vast improvements offered by new technology and its implementation, but she is most proud of the fact that the office overall and her job still focus on the care and personal relationships created and fostered over time with patients who come back over and over.

Dawn fills a unique position at Distinctive Dental Solutions.  Dawn works in both the hygiene department of the office as the right hand to the hygienists AND she works with Dr. Bologna on select procedures during the day.  She even takes time to answer a call if our front desk coordinator is busy helping another of our patients.  She is very well suited to this busy position as anyone who knows Dawn would say she is always busy working on some amazing project that she sees as “no big deal”.  It is likely that you will get to know all of the staff of DDS very well as a patient here, but you may wonder how Dawn can be in all of those places in the office at one time.

Dawn and everyone at DDS are proudest of our commitment to one-on-one relationships formed and nurtured over time to further the dental and overall health of our patient base.

Office Re-Opening

Hello from the team at Distinctive Dental Solutions.  You may or may not be aware of this, but our office has been closed since March 19, 2020 by decree of the Governor of Indiana and by Federal recommendation.  Since the time of formal closing, fortunately we have been able to see and help patients with emergency level treatment, but no “routine” schedule has been allowed since that time.

On April 20th, Governor Holcombe issued Executive Order 20-22 which stated that dental offices among other health related fields would be allowed to return to practice as early as April 27, 2020.  This Order, as with all items related to this crisis, is subject to revision and will be revisited by the Governor’s office weekly for the duration of the crisis.

As Distinctive Dental Solutions, as you have come to expect and rely on, we are hard at work to re-invent our office experience to present the best and safest experience possible to ensure the health of our team and each of you, our valued patients.  It is because of this need to plan for and execute changes to the office and gather all needed items of personal and patient protective equipment needed, we will open to direct patient care on May 4, 2020.

You will notice multiple changes to the way you are welcomed into the office, where you will wait, if needed, prior to or after your appointment, and even the door where you will exit upon completion of an appointment in the office.  Each one of these have been designed to keep you and us as safe and “individual” as possible in keeping with the social distancing rules that have been so successful in controlling the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  What will NEVER change is our total commitment to providing only the best care possible delivered by the best possible team of care givers in the high-tech and “home-like” setting to which you are accustomed. 

We have missed you all very much and look forward to seeing you back in the office for your dental care as soon as possible, but we will not move forward until we can be confident in our systems and protocols to keep everyone involved safe and healthy. 

Here is to seeing you in the office very soon!!
