I-MOM's group taken with awesome volunteers on October 5, 2021 at Free Dental Day

    Alison came to work for Dr. Kelch in April 1999 as a Registered Dental Assistant.  She resides in Clarion with her husband, Eric, and son, Ethan.  In her spare time, she likes to travel, go shopping, and spend time with her family.   

  • Denise Endriss
    Front Desk - Registered Dental Hygienist

    Denise was born and raised in Michigan.  She came to Iowa in 1993 and has been working in dentistry since 2001, first as a dental assistant, then as a dental hygienist since 2005 in Boone, Des Moines, and Ames.  She snagged an Iowa country boy and in 2020 married him and moved to Clarion.  After a temporary stint working at the Clarion Locker as an essential worker during the COVID pandemic happily processing your beef and hogs, she now works at Dr. Kelch’s front office, occasionally helping out in hygiene. When Denise is not at work, her life’s energy revolves around making a home for her family.  In her spare time, Denise enjoys knitting and quilting, thinking of future knitting and quilting projects, watching her husband drive a truck and fix things, and perennially hoping for that day her Detroit Lions make it all the way to the Super Bowl.
