Hello and welcome to Oasis Dentistry! I’m looking forward to meeting you and ensuring you have positive, comfortable visits that leave you smiling.
I handle treatment plans and will explain what’s involved and how the process will address your needs. It’s important you’re fully informed about your dental care! I also handle insurance matters and will work hard to make sure you get the most from your benefits. Additionally, I’ll help you schedule visits and do my best to find appointment times that fit with your life and commitments. I love being part of a positive, happy office and helping people smile!
I was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and raised in Belton, MO. After graduating high school, I went to Johnson County Community College, where I completed an A.A. degree. Now I’m enrolled at Donnelly College, studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Organization and Leadership. In my free time I love being with my family and I enjoy the outdoors and listening to music, too.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, I’m looking forward to meeting you! I love working one-to-one with people, helping them develop healthier smiles and improving their life and health.
I provide preventive care, including taking X-rays, gentle cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants. I also diagnose and treat periodontal disease (gum disease). A lot of our time together will focus on education. I’ll show you the best ways to keep your mouth clean and healthy between visits, talk about nutrition, and encourage good habits. Together, we’ll get you to your healthiest, most beautiful smile!
Outside of work, I enjoy practicing yoga, trying new healthy recipes, and reading. My favorite books are, “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff … and it’s all small stuff” and “The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here For?”
Registered Dental Hygienist
You’ll find me working at Oasis on Mondays and mainly with the kids. I provide kid-friendly education on ways to improve and maintain good oral health, cleanings, sealants, and topical fluoride to help prevent tooth decay and keep those little smiles healthy!
I absolutely love working with our young patients! My goal with all children is to make them feel comfortable in the dental office and have a pleasant experience. Having a child myself, I am very calm and patient with the kids as if they were my own. Our doctor and entire team are very compassionate as well.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my son, my husband, and our dog Peko. I also enjoy riding horses and showing in horse shows.

I am very proud to be a part of Oasis Dentistry. I could go on for days about why I love working here, but it all boils down to one thing: the people! I love being able to work with the people in our community and give them the smiles that they deserve. I enjoy seeing people who have avoided smiling due to their lack of dental care being able to smile with pride and feel good about themselves again. It makes me feel awesome when someone comes in with pain and we are able to relieve it and fix their teeth!
When you come into the office, I’ll be the one working alongside Dr. Blacknall with your procedure. He is so precise and detail-oriented, and does high-quality dentistry for everyone. I also feel proud that I can work in an environment where there are strong Christian values!
I am a single mother with three beautiful children. Dimitri is 16 and plays football for Olathe South, Angela is eight and loves and exceeds in her schoolwork, and Alexa is three and my little precious genius. We also have a four-year-old chocolate Lab named Luna. As a family, we spend time watching football, having get-togethers with family and friends, watching movies, bowling, and going to the park and pool. We also travel to Honduras frequently to visit family.
When it comes to our office, if you can name it, I've done it. I oversee most aspects of the office and am here to address any questions or concerns that you might have. I am passionate about dentistry and the overall health of our patients, something you will find in all of us here at Oasis.
There are so many things that I love about Oasis. I love that I work with an AMAZING team of professionals who are committed and loyal to each other and to providing only the best care to our patients. Dr. Blacknall is extremely thorough and detailed in his work and I love that I get to be involved in the process of changing the lives of others. There is something truly incredible that happens within someone when they smile with confidence for the first time or when their dental fears are lifted and they are empowered to take control over their health. Oasis is more than just a dental office. It's a dental family that finds happiness in the relationships we build, the memories we make, and the journey we’re all on together.
My husband and I are blessed with a nine-year-old daughter who inspires us daily with her spirit and tenacity and a six-year-old son whose heart is just as big as his ambition to think outside of the box. We have two dogs, a cat and a salt-water fish tank.
I love curling up with a good book, a big blanket, and a cup of coffee.
Welcome to Oasis Dentistry! I’m looking forward to greeting you in person and learning about your life. Dr. Blacknall is truly a gentle dentist and our team members are some of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. We’re all here to help you achieve a healthy, happy, beautiful smile!
I answer our phones, schedule visits, check insurance eligibility, and process payments. I also handle a variety of administrative tasks to keep everything organized. My most important responsibility, though, is helping you!
I live with my parents and younger siblings, and with my German shepherd, Laika. I love time with my family, whether we’re talking and laughing, watching movies, working on the house, or I’m helping my mom in the kitchen or my dad work on cars. I also enjoy playing soccer with my little brother. I’m very active in my church, too, and volunteer with retreats and help with food and garage sales.
I love working with my husband, Dr. Blacknall, and our amazing team at Oasis Dentistry. I am happiest when I see someone’s self-image improve because they took time to care for their dental health, improve their home care, and change their smile.
I’m at the office part-time, usually working behind the scenes on marketing, human resources, or vendor matters. I also organize and facilitate our team meetings and strive to ensure all parts of the practice run efficiently and smoothly: I want our patients to have stress-free visits and a large part of that means making sure the team can focus on them and their needs.
Dr. Blacknall and I have been married for more than 20 years. We have three lovely young children who keep us very busy. I love watching and supporting our kids’ activities, including soccer, basketball, and martial arts. I’m also very involved in several community organizations and am usually working on a couple of different projects or events at any given time. My favorite hobby of all time is reading and I always make time for it!
