Our staff of dental professionals strives to provide only the best experience for our customers. Calm, comfortable, and painless dentistry is the standard at Manduzzi Family Dentistry. Below we would like to introduce you to our amazing staff that keeps the bar set high and our patients needs the top priority.
Christopher J. Manduzzi, D.D.S.
Dr. Manduzzi received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry and also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Oakland University. He is a member of the American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association, Macomb Dental Society, and Christian Medical & Dental Association.
Dr. Manduzzi’s goal as a dentist is to provide first-class, comprehensive, affordable dental care in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Since purchasing the practice in 2013 (which has been a staple in the Historic District of downtown Utica for over 50 years), Dr. Manduzzi has continuously been updating and improving the office to ensure his patients receive the best quality, most comfortable dental care available today.
Dr. Manduzzi is passionate about his work and takes great pride in improving his patients’ smiles, oral health, and quality of life. He routinely attends conferences and seminars all across the country to keep up-to-date with new technological advances in dentistry, as well as the “latest and greatest” techniques available for dental procedures. He has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education, focusing on everything from dental implants to cosmetic dentistry to updates on oral cancers and other forms of oral pathology, among countless others.
Dr. Manduzzi grew up in Troy, and currently resides in Shelby Township with his wife Jackie. His favorite pastimes include spending time with his family, attending church, traveling, trying new restaurants, reading, and listening to music.
Pam has been in the dental field for more than 30 years and throughout those years has been involved in many areas of the dental office, from chair side assisting to front desk reception and insurance billing. She specializes in helping our patients understand their dental insurance benefits and the financial aspect of their treatment. She is passionate about making optimal dental care affordable for our patients and will work to come up with a variety of payment plans to best suit your needs.
When not at work, Pam loves cooking, exercising, spending time with her husband Ray and her two children, and taking walks with her dogs Buddy and Jax. She also enjoys going to the movies with her family and is a huge fan of the Harry Potter and Marvel movies.
Alicia joined our office in the spring of 2016. She worked in the dental field as a chairside assistant and receptionist throughout high school and college and then spent 10 years in the marketing field after earning her English degree from Oakland University. Now back in the dental field, her smiling face is the first thing you’ll see when you walk in our front door!
In her free time, Alicia loves spending time with her husband, Dan, and their extended families, watching sports, and playing piano.

Camille has been practicing dental hygiene for 36 years, with the last 16 years as part of our practice. Camille’s level of experience is evident as soon as you meet her. She has a warm smile and a wonderful chairside manner, and genuinely loves getting to know our patients and hearing what’s new in their lives when they come in for their routine 6 month cleanings.
Camille comes from a “dental family” – her father and sister are both dentists! Camille and K.C. have two daughters and three grandchildren, whom she loves babysitting and spending time with. She also enjoys gardening and spending time outdoors.
Kristyn graduated from Baker College in 2011 with a degree in Dental Hygiene. While growing up, she always found going to the dentist exciting and fun. She has a passion for patient education and helping patients obtain a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.
Kristyn was born and raised right here in Utica, Michigan. She is a member at Peace Lutheran Church, where she helps with the children’s ministry. Kristyn loves spending time with her family and friends. During the summer, she spends most of her time up north, where she enjoys boating and sitting by the bonfire.
Jackie joined our team as a dental hygienist in 2013, although she is no rookie when it comes to dentistry. Before starting up her own dental staffing company, she worked as a receptionist in a dental office and then went on to the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) for her dental hygiene degree, which she has been using for the past 14 years.
Outside the office, you might find Jackie jogging, watching HGTV, or attempting home improvement projects. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends and loves volunteering for numerous wonderful causes.
