Meet The Team


Drs. Hoover & Molleti would not work as smoothly without the help of their team.  From answering phone calls and questions about insurance to assisting our periodontists in procedures, our team plays an essential role in giving patients a positive experience every time they come into our practice.  

Our team can’t wait to talk with you on the phone or in person, and you can learn more about us by reading the information provided below.

Front Office

Left to Right -Becky, Helen, Kris & Deb

Our front office coordinators are dedicated to exceptional patient service. These creative ladies are available to assist in making your first and every visit a pleasant experience.  With over 25 years combined, you can be assured our front office team will provide you with outstanding service. We'd be lost without their expertise!!

Becky- I am the newest member to join the team.  This is my first experience working in a Dental practice. You will find me at the front desk welcoming you to our practice.   I love the opportunity to learn about new procedures and meet new people.  I live with my boyfriend Jason and my dog named Millie. On the weekends, you will find me at the cabin spending time with my family.  I enjoy biking, walking my dog and traveling with friends.

 Helen- I joined the practice in 2010 after a career in administrative management. I enjoy greeting our new and returning patients at the front desk, knowing that they will be seen by a caring clinical team.  When I am not at work, I prefer to spend time with my family and friends. I travel to Florida every winter to relax and sail with family. I never let a day pass without reading a book. In addition, I enjoy cooking, walking and playing cards. 

Kris- I have been with the practice for over 40 years.  As the office manager I wear many hats here. To list a few, I handle all the insurance claims and take care of the bookkeeping, Most importantly, I make sure the office runs smoothly and efficiently. What I most enjoy is spending time with my 2  sons, and their wives and my grandchildren.  My hobbies are biking, walking and reading. 

Deb- I have worked on & off in this office for the last 40 years.  I am very happy to be back with the team again. During my free time, I enjoy spoiling my new granddaughter, gardening, and spending time with my family up at the cabin enjoying a delicious cocktail by the lake.  My family of 3 adult children and their puppies keep me busy and I wouldn't have it any other way.  

Dental Hygienists


I graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry with my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I joined the practice in 2018, and I have a love for periodontics. I try to make it show in the care of my patients. I love working with my patients every step of the way on their journey to periodontal health and maintenance. Being a active partner for my patients help them be more successful in achieving optimal oral health, through the sometimes long and strenuous journey of periodontal disease.

I live north of the cities with my precious dogs, Otto and Franklin. I love spending time outside walking and enjoying the fresh air. Family and friends are dear to me, and my spare time is often spent surrounded by the people I love. 


I earned my Dental Hygiene degree in 2000. I am fortunate to have enjoyed a 38 year career in dentistry. I first worked as a dental assistant back in 1983 in a general dental practice and then with Dr. Neil Covin in his periodontal practice for 10 years. When not at work, I love to volunteer my time at Minnesota Mission of Mercy, Sharing and Caring Hands Dental Clinic and Give kids a smile. 

What I enjoy most about my job is helping people achieve and maintain their healthcare goals. I have four amazing daughters and three beautiful grandchildren. When not at work I enjoy hiking, travel, and art.  The absolute best is spending time with my grandchildren. 

Surgical Dental Assistants

Left to Right - Jen (1999), Tanya (2008) & Jamie (2001)

 Jen- I have been a dental assistant for over 23 years.  I have been with this practice for 22 of those years.  When I'm not working, I spend most of my time cheering on my 3 children being their biggest fan.  In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my family, entertaining by the pool and volunteer work.  When I have the time, I love to exercise and cook.  I enjoy the camaraderie with our patients and getting to know them. My team members are like family to me. 

 Tanya- I have been in dentistry for over 20 years. I have been with this office for 12 joyful years. I really enjoy working with our patients to help ease their dental anxiety and to make sure while in my care they have the best experience.  When I'm not chasing after the doctors, my husband and I are busy running our 2 kids to either hockey practices or games, carrying around the heaviest equipment from rink to rink. My family and I enjoy camping with our 2 dogs Lucy and Attie and spending time with our family and friends.  

Jamie - I have been a dental assistant for 22 years, 20 years spent with this practice. I really enjoy working with our patients to help them achieve their oral health goals. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Mike and our 3 kids (when they're willing) and our little dog named Jalapeno.  When my family and I get the chance we love to travel to warmer climates during our frigid MN winters. When I find the time I love to read a good book, taking on various projects from Pinterest, and just recently took up running outdoors.
