Meet the Team

Shari Snyder

Dental Assistant/Office Manager/Holiday Decorator

I joined the Pedodontics team in 1985! I am a Dental Assistant and Office Manager as well as Holiday Decorator! I love decorating for all the seasons to get the kids excited! These many years I have driven back and forth from Wahoo, Nebraska where my husband and I have raised our three children. I love to joke that I have been married to my "Pedo family" longer than my husband. When I say we are truly a family here I mean it literally! You have probably met my two daughters, Shelby and Katie, working here off and on over the years! Not so sure my son "Nick" will be interested in following the path! I love working with children! It keeps me young!

Shelly Dickinson

Dental Assistant/Co-creator of Beautiful Smiles

I have been part of the Pedodontics, P.C. team since 1987. I absolutely love my job. I take great pleasure in seeing our patients transform from start to finish. My job is to make our patients and their families feel comfortable, have a positive experience and understand all treatment recommendations. I find it very rewarding to see a patient smile after treatment and say "Thank You". Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my family!

I have been a part of the Pedodonics, P.C. team since 1988. My passion is making the kids feel comfortable. I spend a lot of time talking to them through procedures. I hear alot of funny stories. Parents if you only knew what your kids are saying!

I am also a wife and mother of two. When I'm not at work I love spending time with my family and attending my kids sporting events.

Jess Lehman

Dental Assistant

I've been a dental assistant at Pedodontics, P.C. since March of 2012. I started with the Pedo P.C. family at the age of 8 as a former patient of Dr. Lisa's. It is because of the caring staff and the Dr's kind hearted nature that made me want to join the team.

Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family and three dogs, Larry, Hank, and Lexi.

Brandi Lienemann

Dental Assistant

I have been part of the Pedodontics, P.C. family since August 2010. After completing the Dental Assistant Program at Metropolitan Community College I knew I wanted to focus on children and orthodontics. I found the perfect place for that here at Pedo P.C. I get the best of both worlds! I absolutely enjoy my job to the fullest. We have amazing patients and parents here at our office. I love building personal relationships with all of our families here. It is very rewarding to be able to help a patient achieve and maintain a beautiful smile and healthy teeth. Outside of the office I love to Zumba, play tennis and I waitress part-time at the best fried chicken place in town!

I started with Pedodontics, P.C. in 1977 and have made the transition through 2 moves starting with Dr. Driscoll and Dr. Vogelsberg at 220 North 89th Street. I interned and loved working with children and young adults so much that I called everyday until they broke down and hired me!  When not working, I foster Golden Retrivers of Iowa and I have 3 Golden Retrivers that I compete with in agility and field.

Kelly Foutch

I joined the Pedo team in May of 2012. My co-workers say my specialty is bonding with my patients and I agree. I love to talk with my patients and take an interest in their lives and hobbies.

When not at work I spend every moment with my husband and kids.
