Dentist Michigan

Dr. Austin Schild

Dr. Austin Schild is born and raised in Grand Haven, Michigan. He attended Michigan State University for his bachelor’s degree in both Human Biology and Kinesiology. Upon graduating, he moved to Chicago to attend Midwestern University where he obtained his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Dr. Austin’s love for west Michigan has brought him back home and has recently joined the Infinity Dental group as one of our new doctors.

Dr. Austin knows what it’s like to be a dental patient. His extensive dental work growing up has drawn his curiosity and love for dentistry. Having braces for almost 3 years, root canals, extractions, and fillings, he felt a sense of confidence once his teeth were perfected. He promised himself to do the same for his community one day. His positive attitude, humble demeanor, and social personality work together to provide excellent patient-driven care.

When not practicing dentistry, Dr. Austin enjoys spending time with his long-time girlfriend, Monica, and his goldendoodle puppy, Sonny. Together, they reside in Grand Haven and love being active. He also loves to golf, travel, and obsess with Michigan State football/basketball.

Dr. Austin considers himself a lifelong learner and loves to provide comprehensive care to all of his patients. He is skilled in all aspects of dentistry and prides himself on being able to make individual connections with each patient. He is so grateful for the opportunity to be able to now serve the community that gave him so much growing up and has made it his goal to shine a different light on what it means to “go to the dentist”.

Insurance Coordinator

Leah Potter

I am the insurance coordinator here at Infinity Dental. I have been working in the dental field since I was eighteen. I started out as a dental assistant and quickly fell in love with the financial end of the dental practice. I have a passion for what I do and I find insurance to be fun and interesting on a daily basis. When I am not at the office, I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my wonderful little family.

Appointment Coordinator

Shannon Jagnecki

I am the appointment coordinator here at Infinity Dental. Its a pleasure to work with such an amazing team! I took a liking to oral anatomy as a young adult. In 2007 I took a course for Medical Coding and Billing at Muskegon Community Collage where I opened my horizons to the dental field. In 2010 I received my Dental Assisting Certificate along with my X ray Certification at Ross Medical Center. When I’m away from work I enjoy time with my loving family as well as the outdoors, hiking, camping, and family gatherings.

I received my CDA from Thompson Technology in West Olive MI in 2006. From there, I started my journey in community health, which continued there for four years. Then, I moved on to private practice from 010 – present. My passion for assisting is strong, and I am always striving for perfection in this lucrative, but very rewarding career. My life would not be complete without my three amazing boys, husband of eight years, and our family rescue pet Bella!

RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Alyssa Carrillo

Hello! I am grateful hygienist of the Infinity Dental team. Originally from Muskegon, I left shortly after high school to serve 4 years in the U.S. Air Force as a Dental Lab Technician in Virginia. Then, completed prerequisite courses at UTSA in San Antonio, TX where I awaited my acceptance letter for the University of Michigan’s Dental Hygiene Program. In 2018, I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene and was gifted with my sweet son, Micah. We love anything that gets us outdoors- bike riding, hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking. I play volleyball year-round and spend too much money on live music events! I have a passion for people and carry that with me through my profession as a hygienist. I look forward to establishing trusting relationships with my patients and treating them to the best of my ability!

RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Emily Crisler

Being a native of West Michigan, I obtained my Dental Hygiene degree from Ferris State University in 2010, including certifications in local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. I love working
with all types of people and being able to make them feel as comfortable as possible in a judgement free zone. One of my favorite parts about being a dental hygienist is educating my patients about hygiene, gum disease, and the mouth-body connection for a total health and wellness experience so they can feel more confident in their health and smiles. I have two
daughters and a small hobby farm in the country to keep me busy outside of work. My husband and I love to travel as much as possible.

CDA(Certified Dental Assistant)

Krystal Veltman

I was born in Fort Knox Kentucky, moved for a short time to Munich, Germany before my family moved permanently to West Michigan in 1988. I married my best friend in 2009 and we have 3 beautiful children, 2 dogs and a heap of chickens together. It has always come natural for me to be a “caregiver” in many ways. I finally found a use for that and earned my certificate in Dental Assisting from Ross Medical of Muskegon, MI in 2019. I did my externship here, at Shoreline Dental, and was lucky enough to find my dental family here. I love the relationships I have made within my dental team but most of all with my fantastic patients. When I am not dental assisting I love to spend time with my family hunting, fishing, gardening and pretty much anything outdoors.

CDA(Certified Dental Assistant)

Shawn Scherer

I attended Baker College in Muskegon and later received my Dental Assistant Certification from Thompson Technology in 2015. I enjoy working in the dental field, because I love caring for patients and learning new things daily, with the ever changing technology and advancements in dentistry.  I’ve been with my spouse for 23 years and counting. We have six beautiful boys, which includes 3 for babies. In my spare time, I enjoy this beautiful world we live in, vacationing and fun in the sun!
