about usMeet Our Team
about our office
North Creek Family Dentistry opened its doors in July, 2019. Dr. Cattle and her team have lived in and around the northwest end of Lincoln for many years, and have been aware of the lack of dental care options in the immediate area for some time. While the neighborhood has grown exponentially in the last decade, it remains underserved, with most residents driving across Lincoln for care. Dr. Cattle and her team view the beginning of this office as an opportunity to create convenient, quality care for our neighbors, and to support the growing community. Working where we live allows us to get to know our patients on a personal level. We understand many of the needs and concerns of our patients because they are shared by us as well. When our office becomes your dental home, you become part of our extended family, and can expect our dedication to determining the best care plan for you and then completing that plan with integrity, compassion, and of course, top quality dental work. We are so excited to be serving our neighbors, and you’ll see that excitement every day in our office.
Dr. Alyssa Cattle
Dr. Cattle grew up in Seward, Nebraska as did several generations of her family before her. If you are from the area, chances are you know some people in common in “small-town-Nebraska” tradition. After graduating from Seward High, she completed her bachelor of science in mathematics at the University of Nebraska Omaha, then came back to Lincoln’s UNMC College of Dentistry for her doctorate. Dr. Cattle lives in the Stonebridge Creek neighborhood with her husband, Roger and their son. She got into dentistry because she wanted a job in healthcare that would fit well with raising a family in the area and that has a lot of day-to-day variety. One of her favorite things about her job is the combination of science and art that it takes to restore patients to form and function. In her free time, Dr. Cattle likes to travel, read, and cook.
Dinorath grew up in Mexico. She moved to Nebraska in 1999 with her two children and they all became US Citizens in 2005. She decided to become a Dental Assistant because she loves interacting with people and knows the importance of oral health. Dinorath received her degree in Dental Assisting from Southeast Community College. She is now a Certified and Licensed Dental Assistant. Dinorath and Dr. Cattle actually went through their dental programs simultaneously and have been working together since graduating with their respective degrees. Dinorath lives in Malcom, Nebraska with her husband Jered and their dog Lola. She is very proud of her children, who both graduated from the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Dinorath and her husband enjoy traveling, camping, fishing and getting together with their four children.
Amanda was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. She started her dental career in the front office as a receptionist, and then decided she wanted to learn dental assisting. Amanda attended Kaplan Univeristy for Dental Assisting and graduated in 2016. She has since used her skills to benefit both the front office and clinical sides of dentistry. Amanda enjoys visiting with patients and making them feel comfortable during their appointments. Her favorite part of her job is educating patients and helping them understand how to meet their oral health care needs. Amanda is also fluent in Spanish, and does a wonderful job translating for Spanish-speaking patients. Amanda likes to spend her free time with her family and friends. She also enjoys baking, live music, and spending time outdoors with her dog, Lila.
Pam grew up and continues to reside in Seward, NE. She received her Associates Degree in Business and Accounting from Lincoln School of Commerce. She and her husband, Rick, own a business where Pam has been the office manager for over 30 years. Pam has been putting her accounting experience to use for us at North Creek Family Dentistry since we opened in 2019. She has become our expert on patient accounts, financing options, and dental insurance. Pam also happens to be Dr. Cattle’s mother. In addition to business, Pam also has a lifelong passion for music, and continues to teach private piano lessons. She dedicates most of her free time (and now also her working time) to her children and grandchildren.
Customer Service Representative
Michele grew up in Davey, NE. In 1980, she graduated from Southeast Community College with a degree in Medical Assisting, which she put to use in Lincoln. Michele married in 1985 and moved to Seward to raise their children in a smaller community. Michele went back to school in 2004 and graduated in 2007 with a degree in nursing from Bryan School of Nursing. Michele then worked as a nurse in Lincoln for over a decade. She joined North Creek Family Dentistry in 2020, where she uses her medical background to excel in patient communication. Michele and her husband continue to live on an acreage in Seward. In her free time, she likes to camp, quilt, run, and travel to visit her children on the West Coast.
