Meet the team members at the practice of Mint Dental Care by reading their biographies below.
Michele Bales – Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in the Magic Valley. I graduated from Buhl High School and in 1989 went to Bryman School in Salt Lake City, Utah to become a dental assistant. I’m not sure where my dental interest came from, but I know that I truly enjoy dental assisting and helping patients. After graduation, my first job was in Vernal, Utah, where I started by doing my externship and then was hired by that practice. About a year later I moved back to Magic Valley and worked for a local dentist for 12 years.
I came to this practice in 2007. I love helping patients achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Since working with the excellent team at Mint Dental Care, I have gained additional training and experience in implants, cosmetic dentistry, and sleep apnea.
When I’m not working I love spending time with my family especially my fiancé who is the love of my life. I have a wonderful grandson and a granddaughter.
Terri Corthell – Scheduling Coordinator
I have been a member of the front office staff since 2007. I enjoy all our patients; but I especially like helping those that are nervous about their visits, because I used to be one of them. My position in the office is making appointments, insurance, and helping out wherever they need me.
I am a Magic Valley native, and love living in this area. I enjoy camping, hiking, and day-tripping with my husband and grown children when we get the chance. I also love flower gardening, ceramics, stained glass, paper crafts, reading and walking. If it’s crafty, I’m into it!
Heidi Bullock – Dental Hygienist
I was born and raised in Rupert, Idaho. I graduated from Minico High School and attended two year s at CSI in Twin Falls. From there, I went on to Apollo College in Boise, Idaho and received my degree in Dental Hygiene in 2005. I have worked in the dental field for 15 years. I love working with our patients to help them achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. I have been with Dr. Hamblin’s dental office since October 2011; however, I had previously filled in for other hygienists in the office since graduating in 2005.
I am married to the love of my life, Thomas and we have 3 beautiful children, Gavin, Ruthie and Luke. I enjoy working out, camping, skiing, and working in my yard. I truly enjoy being outdoors no matter what the season is, as long as I’m with family and friends.
Lisa Campbell – Dental Assistant
I was born in Pocatello, Idaho. I graduated high school in Twin Falls, Idaho. After high school I married my husband, who I have now been married to for 16 years. My mother in law introduced me to dental assisting. I instantly fell in love with the profession. I received my dental assisting certification from CSI. I assisted for Dr. Hamblin for 4 years, and then decided to take a 7 year break to stay home with my 2 children while they were little. Once I was ready to come back to work, Dr. Hamblin rehired me, and I am so grateful! I loved working for Dr. Hamblin before, and I am so happy to be back in his office once again.
I enjoy cooking and baking. My kids love being in the kitchen with me. In our spare time, my husband and I love to go camping, motorcycle riding, bowling, or anything that makes a good memory with our 2 wonderful children.

After graduating from high school I attended College of Southern Idaho and University of Idaho studying Ag-business and Ag. Science. I attended Dental Hygiene School at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, ID. I graduated with my AAS degree in Dental Hygiene in May 2016.
I am engaged to the love of my life. We are planning a wedding for this fall. We have 2 kids, both boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, fishing, playing co-ed softball in the summer, and having BBQ’s with friends and family.
