Meet Our Dental Assisting School Team – Claremore, OK

Experienced Instructors Focused on Your Success

Do you want to learn from experienced instructors who are focused on your success? Our team has an average of more than 20 years of experience each. They know the ins and outs of their field, and they are well-familiar with how to pass on their knowledge in a digestible manner that isn’t overwhelming. They enjoy getting to know new students at our Claremore dental assisting school, and they would be pleased to get to know you as well! Take a look at their biographies below to learn a few key details about the members of our expert team.

Dr. Lori Hare, Dentist

Dr. Hare grew up around dentistry thanks to her orthodontic assistant mother. The doctor she worked for encouraged Dr. Hare to go to dental school, and today, she has been a passionate member of the field for over 30 years. After graduating from the OU College of Dentistry and completing her residency, she opened her practice in 1994. She rigorously pursued continuing education throughout the years and has Fellowship Status in the Academy of General Dentistry. She is currently working on becoming a Fellow with the American Academy of Clear Aligners and earning her certification in myofunctional therapy.

Early in her career, Dr Hare along with her business partner, Dr Billie Reeder, realized the need for well trained dental assistants. This led to Dr Hare and Dr Reeder establishing Green Country School of Dental Assisting.

A Tulsa native, Dr. Hare is married with two adult sons (with the oldest being an orthodontist). Her interests outside of dentistry include interior design and working out/cooking to optimize her overall health.

Dr. Billie Reeder, Dentist

Dr. Reeder began her nearly 40-year career in dentistry as an assistant, and she eventually went on to get a degree in dental hygiene before ultimately graduating from the OU College of Dentistry. Whether she is serving patients or teaching up-and-coming dental assistants, her favorite thing in the world is to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

Dr. Reeder and her husband, Tony, have a daughter, two dogs, a cat, as well as an adorable grand puppy. They travel to Grand Lake often to relax at their cabin, and back home, you’ll often find Dr. Reeder working outside in her flower beds.
