Dental Hygienist

Hello, I’m Olivia, and I have been working at Dentistry by Design since 2008. I graduated in dental hygiene from Rose State College in 2013, and I was president of my class. During my years at school, I was awarded the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler Award and I was a member of the Sigma Pi Alpha National Dental Hygiene Honor Society. I enjoy interacting with our patients at Dentistry by Design, and I love my job! I worked in several different positions in this office prior to becoming a hygienist, and I work very hard to provide high-quality care. My hobbies include woodworking, going to concerts, and spending time with my husband, Jarred.



My name is Thi.   I am a graduate of University of Texas at Dallas where I majored in Biology and Business.  I worked as a hygienist in Dallas for four years before moving to Oklahoma. I enjoy dentistry and the impact it can have in people's lives.

My husband and I recently opened a Cajun restaurant in Oklahoma City named "The Crafwish Pot".  It takes a lot of my time in the evening, but we are very excited about it. When I do have a few minutes of free time I enjoy reading and movies.

Hello, I’m Jennie! I am a dental assistant at Dentistry by Design. I started working in the office in 2001, left for a few years and am glad to be back. I enjoy working as a dental assistant, and I work hard to make sure that you receive the best care. Our patients become friends through their care, and I like being part of a dental team who genuinely cares about the patients. I graduated from Enid High School and I am currently taking online classes when my busy family allows it. I have a wonderful husband, Clint, and four children: one son and three daughters. Together, we enjoy going to the lake with our family and friends, and competing in cooking competitions throughout the state with our smoker.

I am the office manager and I am proud to be able to work with the doctor, hygienists and support staff.  It is a fun place to work and I appreciate the way that the entire group cares for the patients as well as caring for each other.  I have been working with Dr. Recknagel since he opened his doors in 2001.

I have four children. My oldest son attends college at the University of Oklahoma, the middle two boys are in high school at Mustang, and my youngest, my daughter, is in 8th grade. They keep us very busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
