Jenna Sommer, Dental Hygienist

Since joining the Grand Dental in 2017, Jenna has had the unique opportunity to serve patients in every one of our dental offices. She appreciates the continuity of care and attention to detail that is consistent across all locations. She values having access to advanced technology and training opportunities, which allow her to provide the highest standard of care for her hygiene patients. Her lighthearted nature and warmth helps put her patients at ease with each visit. After serving as a dental assistant for many years she received her hygiene certification from the College of DuPage in 2004. Since then she has completed advanced training in laser therapy, periodontal therapy and treatment, and oral cancer screening.

A self-described “Social Butterfly”, Jenna knows how to Bring The Fun whether at home, in her neighborhood or at work! She enjoys entertaining and planning gatherings with her co-workers outside of the dental office. Her family, including husband, Dave, her son and three Labrador rescue dogs, love to get away to their vacation house in Wisconsin where they enjoy tubing, boating, fishing and sitting on the porch at the end of the day.

Kirsten Napier, Dental Hygienist

Kirsten Napier has roots in the Chicago suburbs and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Art from Elmhurst College. She went from being a patient at the original Grand Dental office in Franklin Park, to becoming a staff member 29 years ago. After initially serving patients at the front desk, she rose to the level of dental office manager and was in charge of multiple locations for Grand for several years. These experiences motivated her to continue her dental journey and a few years later she earned her Hygiene degree at Harper College in Palatine.

These days she is inspired by modern medical and dental research. Kirsten feels passionate about educating her patients on the link between oral health and the prevention of heart disease. She wants to help her patients know the most current techniques and information available in dentistry so that they can make the best decisions about not just their mouth but also their overall health.

She is the mother of 3 daughters, and in her free time, loves spending time outdoors and watching the girls play lacrosse. She is interested genealogy and is currently retracing and recording their family history.
