Mandi Mathison

Registered Dental Hygienist
Mandi graduated from Rochester Community and Technical College with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. She grew up in Elgin and is happy to be back working in her home town!

“As a kid, I was fortunate that the dental office my parents chose was staffed by a very kind, gentle, and inviting team. I only had good experiences there (even though I had MANY baby teeth extracted and years of braces!). I never feared going to the dentist! Now, it’s one of my biggest goals here at Elgin Family Dentistry, providing that same experience for all of our patients! One of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing patients of all ages that are HAPPY to be at the dentist.”

When Mandi isn’t wearing her Dental Hygienist hat, you can find her husband JB and her keeping up with their three kids and all their activities. Some of their family’s favorites include camping, downhill skiing, and swimming. She also loves DIY home improvement projects and has a passion for photography!
