Dental Assistant

I help patients throughout their visit, bringing them into the clinic area, preparing them for treatment, and providing chairside support to Dr. Thompson. I love my job because I love the dedication and passion that that everyone puts toward their craft and our patients. I love working with a team that is dedicated to their work and learning new things in the dental field because when we are all working to the same goal, the results are astounding.

Dental Hygienist

I began my career as a dental assistant from 2001 to 2004, and continued my education to become a dental hygienist in 2006. As a new member of the team, I’ve enjoyed getting to know our patients while helping them achieve a healthy smile. I appreciate the compassion Dr. Thompson shows to both our patients and coworkers, as well as our staff’s helpful and teamwork-oriented attitude.

I have been married 12 years and I have a ten-year-old daughter. We also have two boxers and a cat that are very energetic and loving. My husband and I stay busy with my daughter’s dance and enjoy traveling and fishing in our downtime.

Dental Assistant/ Clinical Coordinator

I love helping people gain health and feel better through a healthy, confident smile. I especially like working with people who are worried about dental procedures.

Appointment Coordinator

I have the pleasure of greeting all our patients with a smile while checking them in and out of their appointments. Working in a family practice allows me to get to know patients of all ages and backgrounds, and I love being a part of helping them achieve great oral health. I also enjoy working closely with the ladies upfront to ensure we provide optimum care to patients before they go to the back.

My job gives me the amazing opportunity to meet people from all backgrounds and get to know them on a personal level. Along with my team, I am dedicated to providing care with compassion.
