Introducing Our Marvelous Team
The old saying, “It takes a village”, rings especially true in our practice. Besides our amazing dentists’, we have many other staff members who help us tremendously. Without them, we couldn’t do the work we do, and we feel so blessed to have them. We wanted to let you know a little bit about our awesome team.
Amanda is a dental assistant and she’s a great asset to our team. She just had a baby girl last September and we are so happy for her.
Taylor joined our staff as a dental assistant in April of 2015. The three things she can’t live without are her toothbrush, cell phone and her best friend. How sweet!
Kiesha is a dental hygienist who we’ve been lucky enough to have had since 2005! She loves making patients smile, and building relationships with them. She is also married and has two beautiful children.
Chasity is a dental assistant who has been with us since 2014. She loves her family and is very close with her mom, older sister and younger brother. She loves seeing patients smile and working for the best dental office around!
We were thrilled to welcome Rikki to our team last September. She has known that she wanted to be a dental hygienist since her freshman year in high school. Her biggest pet peeves are tardiness and people who smack their food when they eat.
Carly is a dental hygienist that’s been with us since all the way back in 2004! She was driven to the field because her Aunt and cousin were both in dentistry and they loved it. Carly is married with one daughter and a dog named Wyatt.
Alexis is a dental hygiene assistant who recieved her bachelor’s degree in behavioral science. She became an assistant for us because she is hoping to get into the field permanently, and go to dental hygiene school. She is a big sister to a 10 year old brother and 15 year old sister.
Alexis has worked here since 2009, and she’s our office manager. Her job is to solve problems and keep the office running smoothly. She enjoys keeping the rest of the staff and the patients happy. Alexis married her high school sweetheart and they have a daughter together.
Kim is a dental assistant who enjoys making patients love their smiles again. She is married and has 3 german shepards and another small dog named Max.
Paige started as a dental assistant for us in 2014. She lives with her sister and three dogs. She loves making people happy with their smile.
Leah is a dental assistant who has been with our practice since 2009. She likes spending time with her family and has three sisters and four nephews.
Melana joined our team last year as a dental hygienist. She enjoys the field because she likes to help people. Her pet peeves are drama queens and lazy people.
Shani is a dental assistant who has been on our staff for 3 years. She fell in love with the profession after being curious about it. She loves her dog Daisy, her two older brothers, and her Godchild.
Tanya is our insurance care coordinator, and she’s been with our team since 2006! We are so lucky to have her. She loves helping patients use their insurance benefits wisely and even has 4 children of her own.
That’s All Folks!
We are fortunate enough to have a large staff so we couldn’t cover everyone. We wanted to give a shout out to Alyssa Boggs, Inger Gauthier, and Brianna Rhymes. We will introduce you to these wonderful team members in the future.
We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know our staff a little bit better. We are so lucky to have each and every one of them, and hope to see you soon. If it’s been over six months since your last cleaning, make your appointment today!
