Meet The Team

Kacey Howard
Clinical Administrator & Registered / Certified Dental Assistant

I was blessed to join Dentistry By the Bay in 2007 when I moved here to Petoskey. My role here has evolved over the years taking me out of my comfort zone of assisting and into management, marketing, social media, and other administrative duties.

I am able to utilize my business degree from Baker College with these expanded duties of the office. I love every aspect of what I do, where I work, the team I work with and all of the amazing
patients that we have here at Dentistry By the Bay! I have taken many different continuing education courses some of which include Orthodontics, Temporomandibular Dysfunction, Sleep Apnea, OSHA, Appliance Therapy, Trios Scanning and Social Media.

I have an amazing and talented husband. We have an adorable, smart and hilarious daughter who was born on Christmas Day. I am a proud Aunt to a handsome nephew and an adorable niece. I enjoy jeeping all over Michigan with my family and friends!

Taylor DuBois
Front Office

I have been a part of this amazing team at Dentistry By the Bay since 2012. I am one of the 3 lovely ladies you will see when you come into the office. I specialize in insurance, scheduling, and financial arrangements. I continue to learn how to help the practice and patients by attending dental seminars.

I was born and raised in Petoskey, this beautiful place we get to call home. I have a son, Rocky, who is the world to me and keeps me busy playing outside and reading books. When I have spare time, I like to spend it with my family, go camping, and enjoy being outdoors!

Christina Johnson
Front Office / Marketing

I recently joined this wonderfully talented team at Dentistry by the Bay. I am part of the front office, and also work in marketing with Kacey Howard. I’ve known many of the Dentistry by the Bay hygienists, assistants, and of course the talented Dr. Johnna Driscoll for years. My family and I have been patients at this office for as long as I can remember. Truly have been blessed with this opportunity to work with the people I have always admired.

I graduated in 2011 from NCMC with an Associate’s degree, and finished my education at GVSU with a Bachelor’s in communication studies, emphasis in marketing and advertising, and a minor in Psychology. I love working with the public and seeing their smiling faces as they come in and out of our office. I’ve always had a passion for helping others, and working at Dentistry by the Bay has already grown that passion. In my spare time I enjoy the simple things: reading, exercising, exploring, spending time with family etc. I also am a Certified Pilates Instructor since 2016 and love working with my clients and teaching Pilates classes at both NCMC and Pilates Midwest.

Cheryl Reese
Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for 40 years, graduating from the University of Minnesota. I still love dentistry and continue to enjoy the patients who have become dear friends over those many years. Helping someone go from frightened to smiling in my chair is one of my greatest rewards.

I have been married longer than I have been a hygienist to my best friend Billy and we have an amazing son (Jon), daughter-in-law (Nikki) and 2 delightful grandchildren (Parker and Avery). We enjoy being “Up North” grandparents with a big garden, 4-wheeler, and a boat to enjoy Lake Charlevoix.

Vickie Radeka
Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Vickie. I have been working in the dental field as a Registered Dental Hygienist for the past 25 years. I enjoy educating and motivating my patients to use the tools they need to achieve a healthy, white and bright smile. I am married, we have two children and a dog at home.

Andrea Farrell
Registered Dental Hygienist

My family moved up north when I was three years old and I have never really left. I originally attended Lake Superior State University as an environment major right after graduation from Boyne City High School. After my sophomore year of college, I decided environment was not for me and I went out to chase my dream. I ended up at Mott Community College out of Flint where I later graduated with my extended degree in Dental Hygiene. After my completion from Mott I moved back up North and started my career as a RDH later landing me at Dentistry By the Bay. I stay up to date on all safety courses in and out of the office along with continuing education courses involving care of implants and HIPAA.

Outside of the office I love to be outdoors and doing everything and anything that Northern Michigan has to offer. My husband and I love everything from kayaking down the Boyne River to jeeping on Drummond Island. As long as we are out enjoying the weather, rain or shine we are happy as can be!

Brandy Singer
Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been practicing dental hygiene for almost five years now, and truly enjoy what I do. Helping my patients achieve optimal oral health by finding what works best for each individual. I was mostly raised in Northern Michigan and just absolutely love all that the area has to offer! My husband and I enjoy long summer days out on the boat, and spending precious time with family and friends.

Elaine Boyer
Registered / Certified Dental Assistant

I have been a Dental Assistant since 1982. In the summer of 2013 I completed the exam to become a Certified Dental Assistant. In 2015 I continued my education by getting my license to become a Registered Dental Assistant. I had a lot of dentistry as a young adult and that made me want to show people that it did not have to be a bad experience. I love making people feel comfortable here at Dentistry By the Bay!

My family gives me a reason to smile! I have two wonderful sons and a new granddaughter who give me joy every day.

Amanda Baril
Dental Assistant

I was blessed to join this amazing team in 2017. I truly enjoy getting to know all the patients on a personal level. When patients come into the office my top goal is to make them feel welcome and cared for.

I am married to my amazing husband, Shawn, and we have two dogs. As a Michigan native, I enjoy spending time outdoors and take advantage of each season. Boating, kayaking, snowmobiling, and 4-wheeling are just a few things I like to do in my free time.
