As a dental hygienist with over 6 years of experience, nothing makes Shaundous happier than giving a patient a clean smile and showing them the best ways to take care of their teeth at home. A graduate of Northwest High School in House Springs, she attended Missouri Southern State University for her dental training. Today, she is certified to provide local anesthetic as well as nitrous oxide sedation.
Outside of dentistry, Shaundous tends to stay very busy thanks to her husband, 4 children, and 4 grandchildren. Whenever she has a free moment, you’ll probably find her crafting or biking around town.
Julie has been with our practice for her entire 10 year career, and what she enjoys most about her job is helping people feel better not just physically, but mentally as well. Whenever a patient comes in with a dental problem, she is determined in assisting Dr. Chouinard to do her part in solving that problem and improving the patient's life in the process. Julie attended Southeast Missouri State University and has worked in many other fields of employment, including producing and directing television commercials and programs. Dentistry is her favorite becuase she can help people get their smile back. In addition to her decade’s worth of experience in dentistry, she is also certified in basic dental skills - expanded functions for both fixed and removable dental prosthetics, oral sedation, CEREC same-day crowns, 3D imaging and is certified in CPR.
A native of Harrisburg, IL, Julie’s family consists of two daughters, her mother, and the princess of the household, a spoiled Blue Healer/Shepherd mix pup. On the weekends, she enjoys going to auctions and sales searching for antique and vintage items. She enjoys learning about the history of the items as well as the people who owned them. She and her best friend love to travel, and go on roadtrips meeting new people and experiencing new and exciting things.
Aubree has been a member of Dr. Chouinard’s team for over five years now. She attended both Southeast Missouri State University and Missouri Southern State University for her education, and she is certified in both nitrous oxide and local anesthesia. Today, what she enjoys most about her job is being able to create such wonderful relationships with each patient, as well as having valuable opportunities for growth through continuing education at dental conventions!
Originally from Benton, Aubree is married to her high school sweetheart and recently had her first daughter named Lyla Grace, who keeps them laughing. When she isn’t busy caring for smiles, her first priority is spending quality time with her little gal. Having too many hobbies is difficult with a little one, but shopping and experiencing new things through Lyla’s eyes are her favorite. She’s also a big morning person and loves waking up early to drink coffee and read her bible. This also means that she’s in bed by 9:00pm sharp!
