Meet the Team at Homer Dental Center
Jennifer Johnson – R.D.H.
I received my B.A. in Biology from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and my associates in Dental Hygiene from North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton. I have worked for Dr Hodnik for the past 18 years. Nearly a lifelong Alaskan, I grew up in Soldotna after leaving Wisconsin at the age of 3. My free time is spent with my family and friends, taking advantage of all that the beautiful Alaskan outdoors has to offer. I love my career and am dedicated to providing our patients with the best care and knowledge so they will be able to achieve excellent oral health for their overall well being.
Connie Isenhour -Administrative Assistant – Office Manager
I have had the privilege of working for Dr Hodnik for more than 19 years as the administrative assistant. Working together with our wonderful patients, meeting new people and assisting with insurance and scheduling needs bring joy to my day. I received medical training in the US Coast Guard and met my husband Joe in Ketchikan. We moved to Homer in 1996 and call this our “retired” home. Our children all live in the area. I enjoy spending time off with my grandsons, Kellen Fin and Corey Stone Isenhour. My puggle Yukon anxiously waits for me each day. Knitting, sewing, quilting and weaving keep me busy at home. I am a Thyroid Cancer Survivor and like to share resources with others. “The only thing constant in life is change” and I believe it every day.
Lika Reutov – Recall Coordinator
I am happy to be back working with the dental team after a busy summer with the peonies. I have been a patient of Dr Hodnik’s for the past 20 years and am so grateful to be a part of her team now. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with loved ones. My goal at work is to always portray a positive attitude as I learn more about the dental field.
Zina Kalugin – Dental Assistant
I have been working as a dental assistant for 5 years and beside Dr Hodnik for 3 years. I grew up in Oregon and moved to Alaska in 2009 after getting married to Alexander. Now, we have two beautiful children, Siveryan and Susanna. During my spare time, I enjoy outings with family and friends. I am happy to get to know patients and making them feel at home and comfortable.
Nina Reutov – Bookkeeper
I have been a patient of Dr Hodnik all my life and am privileged to be a part of her team. I am cross trained in many areas and help out wherever needed. Currently I am finishing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a focus on Human Resources. Together with my partner, Jed and our dog Camo, we enjoy being outdoors and spending time on the water. My family lives here and I spend a lot of time with them celebrating life.
During summer breaks, Jacob rejoins our team to help out with sterilization and operatory set up. He is very helpful with any computer issues that we may have. We look forward to having him come back!
