Meet The Staff


Hi!  My name is Blue!  I’m new to the office as of June 2021.  Dr. Bryant is my dad and he lets me come to the office with him daily to socialize with his patients and spend time with all of my “aunts” in the office!  When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time on the lake, going on walks and playing catch with my tennis ball.  You may hear me speak when you’re at your appointment, but; that’s just me trying to get someone’s attention!

When I’m not reminding you to floss, you can find me with my husband and 2 boys & our “petting zoo” (we should require admission to our home)! Life is busy but we try to enjoy some time riding snowmobiles in the winter or on the boat in the summer.

Bonnie, Dental Hygienist
Hello, I’m Bonnie!  I’m a Dental Hygienist and have been part of the team at Comprehensive Dental Care since 2013.  I am an Elkhart County native and graduated from Elkhart Christian Academy.  I earned my associates degree in Dental Hygiene from Kellogg College in Battle Creek, MI in 2008.  I graduated as vice-president of my class.  The following year I received a Bachelor degree in Applied Science in Dental Hygiene with a minor in Healthcare Management.  I am also licensed to administer local anesthesia, which helps patients feel comfortable during treatment.  With over 5 years experience in pediatric dentistry, I like to help our young patients feel good about their first dental visits.  I enjoy the dental field because a patient’s oral health can improve so rapidly.  It’s rewarding to see the amazing transformation when a patient attains a beautiful smile with healthy gum tissues.  I have been blessed to travel internationally on several dental mission trips, providing dental care to those in need.  I’m actively involved in my church.  I enjoy spending time with my husband Adam, and being a mom to our 3 little girls!
