Anita - Dental Assistant
We welcomed Anita to our team in May, 2012. She is a tremendous asset, with 14 years of experience in complex cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as family dentistry.  She was named "Outstanding Technical Graduate" by Minnesota Association of Technical Colleges.  In 1991, she graduated from Hibbing Community College with a diploma as a Registered and Certified Dental Assistant.  She has also completed her liberal arts degree in 2008.  Anita maintains her licensure in expanded functions and administration of nitrous oxide sedation.

My career has been a wonderful journey that has enabled me to create lasting  relationships with patients and colleagues.  I am blessed for the opportunity to be a part of this positively dynamic team.  I admire Dr. Cooper as truly an amazing person with several years of experience in dentistry and dedication to her patients. 

Outside of the office,  I am the youngest of five siblings, all of which I enjoy maintaining a close connection.  In my free-time I am consistently active with my son and daughter, Robert and Alexandra, as well as my two adorably energetic grandchildren, Leo and Oliver.  My passions in life are cooking. gardening. decor, and of course spending as much time with my family as possible!


I have enjoyed working with Dr. Cooper for most of my career. She is an excellent dentist who provides patients with the best of care. My favorite thing about our office is working with such a dedicated and loyal staff who strive to make each day and every visit positive and comfortable. I find satisfaction in educating patients about their oral health and maintaining a healthy smile. But, the best part of my job is interacting with the patient and building life long relationships.

I graduated from the U of M - Duluth. I've worked for Dr. Cooper for 20 of my 25 years as a hygienist. I live in Hastings with my husband and 2 children, Nicholas and Brooke. I enjoy the time I spend with them at their soccer and hockey games.
