Meet The Team



Lyndal - Office Manager

I am a lifelong South Monterey County Resident and have worked in the dental field for over twenty years, the majority of my dental career has been here in the Monterey/Carmel area.  I love being so close to the ocean and love meeting and serving the patients in this area.  In my free time I love spending time with my Grandchildren, horses, and dogs.  My hobbies include Gardening, crafting, and just having quality time at home in King City.

Kim - Office Administrator

I have lived in Carmel my whole life.  I have worked in the dental field since 1991, starting off assisting chairside and then moving up to the  front office.  I really love working with our patients and getting to know them . When I am not working I am spending time with my husband and two daughters.  You will usually find us at the softball fields or the tennis courts, or at home watching movies together.

Debbie - Senior Hygienist

I am a Monterey native and have 15 years of dental experience. I graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2000. I furthered my education at Cabrillo College and became a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2006 and started working with Dr. Nattkemper.  I am an avid student of the field and I am committed to providing the highest quality of care with a gentle and caring manner.

Outside of the office, I spend my time with my husband and 3 children -Sean, Holly and Andrew.  I volunteer at my local church, coach soccer and baseball and help at my children’s school. In my free time, I enjoy riding my horse, running, traveling, cooking and reading.

Heidi - Hygienist

Heidi joined our staff just a few months ago.  She is a recent graduate of Cabrillo College's School of Dental Hygiene, where she served as her Class President and received Cabrillo's award for outstanding leadership.  Heidi is currently studying for her Master's in Dental Hygiene at UC San Francisco and intends to divide her time between practicing in our office and teaching.  Before attending Cabrillo, Heidi served as a dental assistant and platoon sergeant for 7 years in the US Army--which included deployments to Iraq and Korea.

Kellye - Surgical Assistant

I grew up locally on the Monterey peninsula attending MPC for my dental assisting certificate in 2010 and shortly after I was registered by the state to become an RDA. I have been working at Dr. Nattkemper's office for over 3 years now and feel very at home here in periodontics. I enjoy working with and helping in the needs of patients and working beside the great staff here. I have begun taking night classes at Cabrillo College to complete my pre-requisites for the dental hygiene program. In my spare time I like to relax with friends and a glass of wine. Weekends you can find me around town, out to dinner with friends, shopping or at a good movie.

Michelle - Office Assistant

Michelle serves as our transcriptionist, office assistant and as Kellye's assistant.  This is a totally new field for Michelle--who, like Heidi, has had a career in the military.  Michelle spent 6 years in the US Air Force as a linguist (training initially at DLI).  A portion of her service was spent as the Commander's Secretary for the USAF at NSA/TX, a multi-service , multi-national Top Secret facility.  She served abroad as well.  Michelle obtained a Master's degree and other certifications from MIIS.  Michelle is sharp, a fast learner and literally makes all of our jobs easier.
