Hi, my name is Dennis D. Struve. My mother was a dental assistant in her younger years and wanted my initals to be DDS - so she got her way with my father. I was born in Merced, California but grew up in the state of Washington. My dear wife Jackie and I graduated from college together at Idaho State University after which I went on to Dental School at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. She supported us working as a registered nurse at Kaiser. We have been blessed with 4 children and Susanville has been the perfect place to bring up a family. One of my great passions is to travel to Honduras every other year to volunteer with a medical/dental group. My hobbies are reading, fishing, biking, skiing and going on walks with our yellow lab. I love what I do for a living and every day is unique and rewarding.

Hi, my name is Jackie; I am Dr. Struve's wife. We met while attending Idaho State University. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Nursing. We have 4 children; Amy, Melissa, Holly and Michael. When Dr. Struve opened his practice in Susanville in 1981, I was his first dental assistant and when we moved to our present location in 1989 I started working at the front desk. I enjoy fishing, digital scrap booking, genealogy and my grandkids. I invite you to come by and see our friendly and talented staff where we treat our patients like family.



Hi, I'm Leslie and I have had the greatest pleasure of working for Dr. Struve and his staff for the past year. They are the best team to work for and with. I have been an RDA for 30 plus years and I love the smiles that we create everyday. When I am not at work I love being outside working in my garden, yard and playing with our yellow lab "Trick".

Hello I'm Jovita! I have been with Dr. Struve's Dental office for about eight years. I moved here with my family from the Sacramento area. I have always worked in an office setting; although in many different fields. I have really enjoyed the family like feel of this office and really do enjoy getting to know our patients.

My name is Cindy and I am the only hygienist at Dr. Struve's. I was lucky enough to enjoy an agricultural upbringing in the Willamette Valley and Southern Oregon. I graduated from high school in Ashland, Oregon and attended Southern Oregon College and graduated from University of Oregon Dental School in 1974. After graduation I moved straight to Susanville. My 3 children were born and raised here. All 3 attending McKinley, Diamond View, and graduating from Lassen High. After the lush forests of Oregon I have certainly learned to love and appreciate the high desert landscape of Lassen County. In our spare time we love to go camping with our children and grandchildren, visiting National Parks and the Oregon and Northern California coast. I worked for a number of dentists in Susanville and surrounding areas before finding a good fit at Dr. Struve's office in 1989. This is an office where patients enjoy the latest technology for any treatment they need, but are not over treated. We would love to see you at our office!

Hi! I'm Jeannie, I grew up in Oroville, CA where I worked in my first dentist office in High School, then on to Western Career College in Sacremento and back to work for many years in the Sacramento area. I moved to the Susanville area at the end of 1999. (Quite a change from Sac,) but I love the Susanville area and working for Dr. Struve. My hobbies are camping, boating, reading and enjoying my family. I'm also very active in my church, and with our mission team.
