We recognize that all of our young patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your child to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I am a certified dental assistant with more than 20 years of experience working at the front desk. I ensure that all our patients’ appointments are scheduled efficiently, and that all their information and insurance is accurate. I watch our patients come and go throughout the day, and not a day goes by that I don’t love seeing how they progress. It is incredibly rewarding to be a part of a team that makes such an imprint on our patients’ lives.
Originally from Northern Kentucky, I am married to my husband Don and have a daughter, Caitlin. I love spending time with my family and friends, and taking walks with my husband and our three dogs, Bella, Holly, and Rocco.
I have an Associate’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and continued my education with certifications in anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and laser dentistry. Whether I’m cleaning teeth, applying sealants, or taking X-rays, I always make sure to create a fun and family-friendly environment! I enjoy working with and educating my patients; it brings light into my life! Working with children is my absolute favorite and will be for the rest of my career.
I have been in a relationship for five years with my significant other and he will always be one of my biggest supporters. I don’t have any children of my own to love yet, but I plan to and for now, loving all of the children that come into our office is just right.
I earned my Associate’s degree in health sciences and dental hygiene from Shawnee State University, and have worked in general and pediatric dentistry since 2004. Joining the Pediatric Dental Garden team in 2019, I have enjoyed getting to know all the children and families in our practice. It is my privilege to educate them on all the important parts of their health and watching them grow into healthy, happy young adults.
My husband and I just celebrated our 15-year anniversary. We love to travel together and see the world whenever we can get away.
I completed my dental assisting studies at the Institute of Dental Technology and recently joined the Pediatric Dental Garden team. I assist Dr. Austin with all aspects of our patients’ care and working as a team to make the office a fun environment for everyone. I love interacting with the kids and growing relationships with them!
Family is everything to me; I am one of five kids and now have three wonderful nephews and a fourth on the way! I adore running and dogs, and have a pup named Nala who loves going on runs with me!
Expanded Duties Dental Assistant
I graduated from dental assisting school in Indiana in 2014. I have worked in pediatrics since 2015, having also worked in a general practice. I went on to continue my education as an EDDA to place restorations, coronal polish, and apply fluoride. Spending the days with kids is the best! I love learning about them, hearing about their interests, and watching them grow throughout the years.
I was born and raised in Indiana. I have two daughters who love to keep me busy! I love anything outdoors, especially swim and kayak!
Expanded Duties Dental Assistant
I earned my EDDA and RDA certificates in 2017 and, in 2019, had the opportunity to join the Pediatric Dental Garden Center team. My biggest goals are providing outstanding care for patients and helping to provide better information for good hygiene. I feel very fortunate to work with children every day—their little smiles and laughter are always appreciated!
When I’m not working, I like to stay active. I love to run and play basketball, hike trails, and go to sporting events!
