"I love helping people improve themselves. It's so rewarding to see their excitement and satisfaction as their dental treatment is completed.

If you are nervous about visiting the dentist, try to not think about past experiences or even other people's horror stories. Try instead to relax and take it one step at a time. Let us show you how we can make most any procedure comfortable!"

Tammy brings over 30 years of experience to our practice, plus an Associates Degree in Dental Hygiene. She began her career in 1983 and joined us in 1991. When not calming nervous patients, she enjoys playing sports, participating in church activities and working with flowers.

"Being able to help patients' smiles look better and maintain good oral health is the best part of my job. I love being able to help people keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.

We have a great staff and I love the Christian atmosphere. We always try to make patients as comfortable as possible and will inform them of everything we will do during a procedure or cleaning. I also really enjoy going to the local elementary schools and teaching the students about healthy habits and how to keep their teeth clean."

Shelly graduated from Columbus College in 1993 and joined our practice in 1994. If she is not at the office, she is spending time with her husband and their two sons. Shelly also enjoys swimming and making crafts.

"I was always afraid of going to the dentist! But, after working here I realized my fears were unfounded and learned the importance of taking care of my teeth. And, this office promotes a Christian environment where every employee is encouraged and well-trained so we can offer our patients quality care.

My favorite moment was when a female patient completed her treatment and received a partial denture. In the past, she had always used her hand to cover her mouth when she smiled... after getting her partial denture she couldn’t believe how beautiful her smile was!"

Melissa brings over 20 years of experience to our office. When she is not coordinating treatment plans for patients, she is an active member of her church. She also enjoys outdoor activities and spending as much time as she can with her children and their many extra curricular activities.
