Dalanna Hanson is proud to be a Shocker! Born and raised in Wichita, she received her Bachelors degree in dental hygiene from WSU. After several years in practice she was introduced to the science of orofacial myology and discovered her passion. By helping patients retrain improper oral habits, she has seen incredible changes in their facial development and overall health. Dalanna feels blessed to work with such a phenomenal team that truly cares about their patients. When she’s not working, she enjoys coaching and attending her daughters various sporting events, going on dates with the man she still can’t believe shes lucky enough to be married to, spending time with family and friends, and travelling to exotic locations. Other hobbies include snuggling with her Great Dane and Weimaraner and reading the comment threads of viral Facebook posts.

Tiffani has been in the dental industry for a number of years after graduating from Wichita State University. She is our resident expert on soft tissue care, and is here to help you focus not only on your teeth, but on your whole-body health. She loves getting to know her patients and their personal needs so that she can help them achieve better health.
Outside of work, she is a mom to two teenage boys.
Nicole is a proud graduate of the Johnson County Community College’s Associates in Applied Science – Dental Hygiene program. She has been working in dentistry for over 6 years and finally joined our practice in 2018. She loves teaching patients about how their oral health is related to the rest of their bodies. She also loves taking care of each patient and building relationships with them in our relaxing office.
Outside of work, you’ll find Nicole spending time with her family, including her husband, daughter, and two dogs. During the summer months, they love to go to the lake to wake surf.
Ashlee is an enthusiastic part of our team. She loves helping patients overcome their fear of the dentist. She is also an active participant in planning treatment, scheduling and follow-up. She loves to have fun both in and out of the office. She and her husband love to travel, go to the beach, and also just hang out at home watching Netflix. Ashlee is also the proud mom of one little girl, Tenlee.
Wiley has been a part of dentistry for many years and takes pride in trying to make the dental experience as comfortable as possible for her patients. She knows what it’s like to be afraid of the dental office– as a child, she once bit and kicked a dentist and hid under the waiting room chairs! She conquered her fear, and now uses that understanding to help earn the trust of her patients and lessen their anxiety during their visit. At home, she is a devoted wife and step-mother. She also enjoys refurbishing furniture, baking Sammie Snacks, walking/running with her dog, reading and volunteering her sewing and baking skills for local animal rescues.
Becca came to our practice in the fall of 2018 after already working in the dental industry for over 6 years. You’ll find her helping both of our doctors during procedures, as well as helping patients with their treatments. She loves seeing people smile and being happy about their oral health. She says that helping others to achieve what they really want for their smiles is amazing to see. Outside of work, she spends her time with her family, traveling, and running.
Vicki attended Wichita Area Technical College as well as The Scheduling Institute, and has nearly three decades of dental experience. She adores working at Love Dentistry, and enjoys watching Dr. Sheri create beautiful healthy smiles. Away from the office, she enjoys gardening, cooking, swimming and shopping.
Katie came to us after graduating from Friends University with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Business Management. She loves the face to face interaction with the patients and helping to coordinate their treatment plans and visits. Her favorite part of her job is being able to follow a patient from the very beginning phases of their treatment all the way to the end. Sometimes this takes several months or even a year – and she loves being there with them throughout the whole process. She loves to guide them through their journey in order to make the process less overwhelming for the patient.
Katie also loves that each staff member at the practice treats patients as they each would want to be treated. She says, “It shows that Dr. Sheri “Love” isn’t just a name… it’s how she practices dentistry. She truly “loves” her patients.”
Outside of work, Katie loves spending time with her husband Josh, son Caden, and dog Ralph. She also enjoys running and participates in a recreational softball league with her husband.

Ruby was loved member of our family here. She left us after a long battle of poor health in May of 2018. A large piece of artwork with her happy photo, still hangs on the wall of the office in memory of her.
Lucy was our newest addition to Love Dentistry and had a striking resemblance to our dearly missed, Ruby. Unfortunately, Lucy passed this year due to a complication during surgery.
