Front Desk Coordinator
Vicki is our front desk coordinator, often the friendly voice our patients hear on the phone and the first smiling face they see when coming into the office. Vicki enjoys talking with patients and making them feel welcome. She loves that our team laughs together every day. Sometimes it’s because of a funny thing our kids did or might be something funny that happened at the office…it’s just one of the little things that makes Vicki such a pleasure to work with! Vicki has been married to her husband Randy for many years. They have a son Cade, as well as a very spoiled dog! They love to go for walks, do yard work, decorate, and shop.
Ashli is thrilled to be able to work with such a great group of people. She's probably the first person you see at our Hamilton location! She enjoys spending time with her son, husband, and her daughter. Family is the most important thing to her and is a huge animal lover. She also has an adventurous side that includes skydiving!
Front Desk Coordinator
Annie is originally from South Sioux City, and moved to Elk Point in 2020 with her fiancé Luis and their son Miles. Annie comes to us with experience as a pharmacy technician, and has a passion for healthcare. In her free time, she likes spending time on her acreage with her family and their farm cats. Annie is excited to get to know more of the community members around Elk Point!
We're excited that Sarah recently joined our team! Inside the office, her goal is to provide the best dental care possible and build lasting, positive relationships with patients and her team. Her most impressive achievement is being a born-again Christian and her three beautiful children: Michael, Rachael, and Charlie.
Heather is a 1999 graduate from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. Heather and her husband live in the country just outside of Sioux City where her husband farms and raises cattle.
While Brittany is a new face at Lakeport, she's not new to the dental field! She brings many years of experience to our team and loves educating her patients about oral hygiene. She's passionate about what she does. In her spare time she loves being with her husband and family while getting to know the Siouxland community.
Rachel's goals include being the best wife and mom she can be, and continuing to learn and grow as a dental hygienist. She says she's pretty boring, but says graduating college with a 4.0 GPA is one of her most impressive achievements. That's amazing...especially since her wisdom teeth were all congenitally missing!
Ashley is a dental assistant with a drive to provide patients with the best care. This not only is Ashley at work, but at home too! When she’s not working, her two twin daughters keep her busy. She loves caring for them and living life to the fullest in whatever she is doing.
Ruth is team member always striving to be the best version of herself. She loves to learn new things that enable her to grow, which is one of the reasons she doubles as a dental assistant and front office team member! Ruth has raised two amazing children who are now grown, loves the ocean, calls her cats her “furbabies” and hopes to retire on the beaches of Hawaii someday!
Karlee was raised in Elk Point and you may recognize her face from back when she was on the basketball court playing for EP Jefferson! Karlee graduated from Dental Assisting School in May 2020. Karlee has spent all of her Dental Assistant career so far with us here in Elk Point and we are so grateful! Karlee enjoys attending her younger brothers sporting events, spending time with her friends, and most of all her family at their cabin.
Jessica is a Sioux City native that graduated from WITCC as a dental assistant in 2010. Jessica really enjoys meeting new people and getting to know each of our patients is very important to her. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and she and the rest of the crew are changing lives, one smile at a time.
One of the things we love about Kaylee is that she loves to learn something new every day! She has an older sister who looks like her twin, and in high school softball, she made a blind catch at shortstop and turned it into a double-play to win the championship game to go to state softball for the first time in school history. Way to go, Kaylee!

Crystal aspires to always improve herself, whether it is at the office or elsewhere! She's proud of working her way up and getting her college degree. One thing that Crystal absolutely loves to do is sing, but ONLY when she's by herself!
Lili may be new to The Dentist, but she fits right in! We love what she adds to the team and to the care of our patients. Lili is also a cat momma and collects squishmallows and keychains!
Jamie loves to travel and one of her goals is to see as many places with her family as she can. She feels that hygiene school, as a wife and mother of four, is one of her most impressive achievements. We're thrilled that Jamie is on our team and guess what--you might see her smiling face at either Lakeport or Hamilton!

The experience at Dr. Burhoop's was one of the best visits I have had at a dental office. The dental assistants and dental hygienists are compassionate and very calming. Dr. Burhoop makes the experience an enjoyable one and guides you in what you need to complete on each visit. If you are in need of a dentist, call The Dentist at Lakeport!

My family and I have had wonderful dental treatment by Dr. Burhoop. He and his staff are knowledgeable and thorough. From check-ups to pulling teeth and filling cavities we know we are in good hands. We highly recommend The Dentist at Lakeport!

Using Technology to Empower Optimal Health
At The Dentist, it is our goal to help each of our patients achieve optimal oral health through convenient, comprehensive family care. That is why we provide thorough diagnosis and treatment with the help of 3-D Cone Beam technology. 3-D Dental X-Rays are safe and they allow us to obtain images at the highest resolution possible.
3D Cone Beams X-Rays
Dr. Burhoop uses the 3D Cone Beam X-ray not only to diagnose various conditions, but to prepare the best possible treatment plan for each individual patient. Not everyone is the same, and the 3D X-ray shows Dr. Burhoop and our staff things like your bone density, thickness, and where your nerves are, allowing us to provide you the best care possible. We are committed to having current technology to give each patient the care they deserve. Providing exceptional patient care that you can trust is our highest priority.
