Meet the Team

Jamie, Registered Dental Hygienist

Jamie joined our practice in 2013. She graduated from UMKC with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2007. Her responsibilities include performing oral prophylaxis (cleanings), oral cancer screenings, educating patients on home care and nutrition, and charting various conditions as well as disease and decay. Jamie’s thorough nature and close attention to precision make her a perfect fit for her position, as well as her gentle approach and friendly demeanor. Her favorite thing about working with Dr. Schaefer and our team is the way our office promotes a positive environment and a genuinely family-like atmosphere. In her leisure time, Jamie enjoys playing at the park, going to the lake, and watching movies with her husband and their two wonderful children, Charlie and Linley.

Lyndsay, Registered Dental Hygienist

Lyndsay first became interested in dental hygiene as a career at the age of seven because her childhood hygienist would let her put on gloves and a mask and "help" her when she cleaned her brother's teeth. She graduated from the UMKC School of Dentistry in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. Lyndsay became a part of the Schaefer Dental team in the fall of 2014. Her responsibilities include performing oral prophylaxis (cleanings), oral cancer screenings, educating patients on home care and nutrition. She has a gentle touch and truly loves what she does. Her sweet and warm demeanor toward our patient's needs allows her to help them reach their oral health goals.

Outside of work she enjoys babysitting her nephew, Colton; playing with her dog, Jayda; reading; cooking; and spending time with friends and family.

Heather, Certified Dental Assistant

With her Dental Assistant Certification and having worked in the dental industry since 1985, Heather is responsible for assisting Dr. Schaefer in all aspects of patient care. Her duties include maintaining instrument sterilization, scheduling patient appointments for future treatment, conducting x-rays, reviewing medical history, planning treatment, and much more. Since her arrival at our practice in 2012, Heather has consistently improved our patients’ overall experience by providing quality dental care that best suits their needs. Heather’s good-natured, empathetic personality and sunny disposition makes it easy for her to make our patients feel like family. When she’s not helping Dr. Schaefer in our office, Heather enjoys spending time with her son JT, reading books, cooking, and collecting Troll Beads jewelry, as well as playing with her adorable Yorkie, Blossom.

Autumn, Office Manager

Autumn began working with Dr. Schaefer in 2013 with her degree in Business Management and over a decade of experience in her field. Her duties include managing the practice account receivables, advocating for patients with insurance companies, preparing fiscal reports and yearly analysis, ordering supplies, and, of course, always greeting patients with a friendly smile; she even serves as a fill-in dental assistant whenever her help is needed. Autumn loves the fact that our team members truly love and care for each other and our patients like family. Her passion for helping people really shines through in everything she does, whether it’s helping a patient who is in pain find comfort and relief, or simply explaining insurance benefits so that our patients thoroughly understand their care. Outside of work, Autumn finds joy in spending time with her husband and their two daughters, Allyx and Alizibeth. She also enjoys gardening, landscaping, cooking, and entertaining friends and family.
