Our Staff

One of the things that sets our practice apart is the experience and skill of our staff. Our staff is dedicated to making your visit to our office pleasurable and beneficial. We believe strongly that you can tell a lot about a dental office by how long the staff has been together. We are fortunate to have staff members that have worked together for over 40 years.

Office Administrators

When you enter our office, you will be greeted by one of our dedicated office administrators, Angie, Callie, Amanda or Debbie. Angie is our financial and business practice coordinator, and Amanda is in charge of scheduling and patient coordination. Both Angie and Amanda worked for Hickory orthodontist Dr. Richard Garlitz for over 20 years, and have joined our practice following his retirement. Callie is also in charge of scheduling and patient coordination. She has worked in dentistry for over 20 years, and has been greeting patients at our office for over 4 years. Debbie has worked in our office for over 20 years, and is also a financial and business practice coordinator. Callie, Angie, Debbie and Amanda are dedicated to help you find convenient appointments to work around your busy schedule, create payment solutions that fit your budget, and make your dental experience as pleasant as possible.

Dental Hygienists

We believe that your dental health begins with healthy gums. Our dental hygienists, Vickie, Tamera and Makenzie, provide high quality dental hygiene treatment designed to optimize the health of their patients' gums and bone supporting and surrounding the teeth. Vickie has worked in our practice as a dental hygienist since 1975, Tamera has worked in the office for over 25 years, and Makenzie has worked here for 7 years. Their experience is evident in their work and in their ability to relate to patients and make them calm during their visits to the practice. Jackie, our hygiene assistant, works closely with Vickie, Tamera and Makenzie to ensure that your hygiene visit is rewarding and that when you leave, your gums and surrounding tissue are optimally healthy.

Dental Assistants

Our dental assistants, Debbie, Jackie and Berida, aid in the delivery of efficient and precise dental care. Debbie, a Certified Dental Assistant, has worked in our office since 1976. Jackie, who is also licensed in Alabama as a dental hygienist, has worked at the office for nearly 20 years, and has worked in dentistry for over 30 years as a dental assistant and hygienist. Berida, a Certified Dental Assistant, has worked in Hickory as a dental assistant for over 30 years, and has worked at our office for over 10 years. Together, the assistants work with the doctors in all dental procedures and are integral to our ability to provide state of the art dentistry.
