Our Team


Sandy Costello

Office Manager

Hi! I am Sandy, the office manager for Fenton Family Dentistry. I graduated from Missouri College in 1997 and received my Expanded Functions license in 2010. I have seen a lot of changes in the dental field with over 20 years of experience. Fenton Family Dentistry is using cutting edge technology to take their dentistry to the next level, making me fall in love with dentistry again! I strive to make every patient feel at ease and do whatever it takes to make your visit a fabulous one. My goal is not only make each visit go smoothly, but also make each patient feel at ease and build a lasting relationship. I have been happily married to my husband since 2009. With our 2 daughters all grown, we are enjoying spending more time together. When I am not at work, you can find me doing a wide variety of things: photography, refinish furniture, camp, fish, hunt, and ride ATVs.


Katie Carpenter

Insurance Coordinator

Hi, I am Katie, I am the Insurance Coordinator for Fenton Family Dentistry. I have worked in the dental field for 8 years. I graduated from Missouri College for dental assisting and ended up at the front desk pretty quickly in my career and I fell in love with it. My passion is Insurance. There is so much information, I am always looking for new ways to better educate myself. I love to learn how a plan works, what changes are being made, and most importantly how I can help the patient utilize their benefits. When I am not at work I love being with my family. I have been married to my husband for 11 years and I have two children, Olivia and Xander. There is a good chance you will find me reading at any opportunity that I get.


Sandra Ball

Hygiene Coordinator

Hello my name is Sandra and I am the Hygiene Coordinator for FFD. I have been with FFD for almost a year and have been in dentistry for over 30 years.  FFD is truly one of the best and rewarding dental offices I have worked with. I love that FFD is a family based practice so that we can have a true life/work balance. I am able to keep my Faith, Family and Career in balance at all times. I am married to my wonderful husband Ken and we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren that we adore.  Ken and I love to spend our weekends taking long drives, riding our motorcycle, taking lots of pictures of old barns and wildlife, and watching our oldest grand son play high school Basketball.

I am also a Mary Kay beauty consultant for over 20 years and love making women feel important and beautiful. My hobbies include: sewing, quilting, reading my Bible, praying, singing, playing piano, and gourmet cooking.

I enjoy being part of a team that creates healthy happy smiles.

Robin Nolen

Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Robin, and I am one of the newest dental hygienists to join Fenton Family Dentistry. I have been a dental hygienist for 23 years, serving my patients in both private practice and public health. I personally love to establish a rapport with my patients and enjoy seeing them come back for their cleanings and maintenance visits. Along with cleanings, I take pride in educating my patients about their oral health. I have two children, Sophie and Brady, who are both teenagers and keep me very busy with their lives! I also have a fur baby, Bailey. A hobby of mine is working outside and maintaining the “perfect” yard.

Hi, I'm Hillary Allebach! I am an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant here at Fenton Family Dentistry. I am the face you will see helping Dr. Nieva with different activities during your appointment. I graduated from Missouri College in 2010 and have been in the dental field for 10 years and have worked really hard to obtain all the licenses an assistant can in Missouri.

Ashley Snider

Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Ashley, and I am one of the newest dental assistants to join the amazing Fenton Family Dentistry team. While I recently graduated from Midwest Institute where I became a certified dental assistant, I hold two degrees and have years of experience in teaching and personal training. My personal goal is to become a hygienist. What an absolute joy it is to participate in turning a patient’s dental anxiety and fear into a phenomenal dental experience! From the moment a patient walks in at FFD, our mission is to create an atmosphere that makes you, the patient, feel completely comfortable, while meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations. I take great pride in accomplishing these goals. I love people and making them feel comfortable. Outside of work, I enjoy playing guitar, collecting Coca-Cola memorabilia, and anything with my fur baby, Harlow. Life is a gift, and if your day isn’t going well, just change it!
