Our team

Gloria Tripp

Office Manager

I have had the privilege of working in the Muskogee dental community for the past 13 years; 6 of which has been with Dr. Michael Stephens.

Being able to work with such a diverse group of individuals over the years has provided me with a strong interpersonal background.

My free time is usually spent with family and friends; I love Mexican food and I am very active. You can always find me playing softball, volleyball, lifting weights at Strictly Fitness, or running 5K’s on the weekends

Lori Bartel

Dental Hygienist
I have been enjoying the world of Dental Hygiene for 20 years. I have been blessed to work for Dr. Michael Stephens for the past 10 years. I absolutely love our family like atmosphere and being surrounded by dedicated and compassionate staff.

My husband Blaine is the pastor of Resurrection Tulsa Church, so anytime I am not doing dental hygiene, I am by his side helping at the church or volunteering in our city. We blended our families in March 2014 which gave us a total of 4 amazing children. My daughter Ally Dickmann is also a hygienist and on occasion you will find her working at our office to give her mom a much needed day off.

I’ve been in dentistry for 17 years; I love helping others smile.

I have two great daughters Kourtney and Madison and have been married to my amazing husband Kelly for 12 years. In my free time I like spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies include cooking and going to the lake.

Wendy Hansen

Hygiene Assistant
I have been in the dental field for 16 years and recently started working for Dr. Stephens as the hygiene assistant.

I enjoy my profession because it allows me to help others with their smile. I am married and have a 6 year old son who keeps me busy with t-ball and soccer. Momma is his #1 fan.

When not working or cheering for my son I enjoy spending time watching my husband race his cars at the racetrack and spending time camping on the lake.
