Smile Design Consultant
I graduated with an AS degree in Dental Assisting from Southern College in Orlando, Florida in 1995. I worked as a Certified Dental Assistant for a number of years and was fortunate in my career to receive education and training with highly credible experts in the field of dentistry. I have worked closely with some of Orlando’s and Atlanta’s best known restorative and cosmetic dentists and have had the opportunity to be a part of some incredible smile makeovers during my career. I have worked closely with Dr. Susan Estep since 2003 and have been a part of an extensive number of her smile makeovers. Even today, when we seat veneers for a smile makeover patient, I am still in awe of what Dr. Estep and her Master Ceramist can create with a smile. I always look forward to our next smile transformation.
I am married and have 2 daughters. l love travelling, reading, going to the movies and just spending time with my friends and family. When I can fit it in, you’ll find me at the gym!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a compassionate, but driven, Dental Hygienist. I love using my professional expertise to help my patients keep and find their beautiful smiles. I enjoy educating patients about total wellness and am well versed in instructing patients on proper dental care in a positive way. I started my career in pediatric dentistry in 2010 because I love kids. But as fate would have it, I landed my happy feet in cosmetic dentistry. Now, I have the opportunity to help children, teens and adults alike. As a midtown resident, I can tell you all the great places to eat, as I am a self proclaimed foodie. In my spare time, you will likely see my walking my pups, Nugget and Jefferson, around Piedmont Park as well as attending Atlanta United Soccer Games.
Certified Dental Assistant
I have been an assistant for 3 years now and very fortunate to work with incredible professionals who have shared their knowledge and given me the opportunity to further my experience in the dental industry. Since working with Dr. Estep, I’ve been introduced to a whole new world of cosmetic dentistry I never knew I would find so fulfilling! The amount of work and dedication each case takes makes my job very rewarding. From the very beginning, creating a bond with our patients, throughout the process watching the changes, to the final results which sometimes include tears of joy, makes me love what I do!
In my spare time time I enjoy working out, shopping and spending time with my friends and family!
Certified Dental Assistant
Patient & Insurance Coordinator
I am originally from Davenport, Iowa. I moved to Atlanta after I completed my dental assisting program in 2012. While I started off my dental career as a pediatric dental assistant, I began to enjoy the business side of dentistry and have worked on the business side for the most part.
I love Atlanta and my little Yorkie named Sosa! In my spare time, you’ll likely find me working out.
I’ve worked in the legal industry for a long part of my working career and have had the pleasure of working with some well known companies here in Atlanta. In 2005, I met Dr. Estep and decided to change careers and industries. I decided to put my business degree, my legal background and corporate training to a different use. When I first joined Dr. Estep, my eyes opened to a deeper approach on health. In 2011, Dr. Estep introduced me to the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health. As someone who came from outside the dental industry, I was surprised and blown away at the impact dentistry has on our health. I have attended a number of AAOSH scientific sessions over the years and met the fellowship criteria, am now a charter AAOSH Fellow. I’ve continued to broaden my scope, and have attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition for a deeper understanding of the impact of diet, food and nutrition on health. While I’ve always been an enthusiast for exercise and diet, knowing and working with Dr. Estep has given me a much deeper appreciation for my own health and how a dental practice is the missing link for a patient’s health. When I’m not working, I really enjoy the outdoors – hiking, riding my bicycle and playing tennis.
