Hello, my name is Susan Gribbin. I started working with Dr. Leinassar in 1983 as a Dental Assistant & gradually moved to the front desk position as an appointment coordinator. I attended school in Knappa, graduating in 1979. I have been married to my husband Mike since 1987 & we have two daughters, Shannon & Alea. We also have five wonderful grandchildren, Aubrey, Blake, Paige, Ava, & Skyler. I enjoy traveling, sewing, crafting & mostly spending time with my husband, daughters, grandchildren & family. I’ve enjoyed working with Dr. Jeff for over 33 years & plan on retiring with him when that day comes. Fondest memories of working with Dr. Jeff are when we kidnapped him on his birthday & took him out for a day of excitement. I look forward to seeing & meeting all of our existing & new patients.
