Here at Super Smiles, we believe in the power of teamwork. We believe that two people together can accomplish more than two people alone. We strive to make dentistry fun and enjoyable, and we want every child to have the best experience possible. Every single team member here has the same goal, and that is to take care of the children and make sure they are happy and comfortable.
Lead Dental Assistant
I have been a registered dental assistant since May 2014. I am certified in nitrous oxide, coronal polishing, and radiographs. I also have my jurisprudence so I am able to watch over moderately sedated children. I go to training yearly to always be on top of everything new in dentistry.
Working in children’s dentistry has been one of the best experiences I have had. Being able to make even a small difference in a child’s life makes a huge impact in mine. I love everything about my job, from helping children or teens enjoy coming to the dentist, and building a good oral foundation for them, to helping my team members with anything they need. We love to make the workplace fun and enjoyable.
I am married to my wonderful husband Joseph. We have two amazing boys, Killian and Dublin, and are expecting another baby boy named Boone in October 2019. I love anything outdoors. I was born and raised in Arkansas, so I love to be outdoors and explore new places. We stay pretty busy with our children in sports, but when I have time, I enjoy reading, hiking, watching movies, and being out on the water. I also love animals. Pigs are my favorite!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and my education includes a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene. What I love most about what I do is the ability to make a positive impact on the lives of children, as well as their oral and overall health. Being a dental hygienist allows me the opportunity to change lives for the better. I can help scared patients become more relaxed during their appointments, and am given the opportunity to build a foundation of trust with them. By building this relationship, a trip to the dentist becomes something they look forward to.
The team at Super Smiles is the most caring, compassionate, dedicated, and fun group of people I know! We have become family and I love working alongside such an amazing group of people.
When I am not working, you can find me floating the Buffalo River, gardening, taking pictures, and spending time with family and friends.
I oversee the general operations of the practice. I have been on many teams throughout my life, and to see how well this team works together is absolutely amazing. Within the first few minutes of being here, you can sense the teamwork and camaraderie that is here, and it is infectious. And then there is Dr. Chad. I wouldn’t want my kids to see any other dentist. The way he interacts with the children, how he handles all situations — it’s amazing and impressive. His work is excellent and my kids love coming to just see him! Come meet him if you haven’t. You’ll see why our team is so happy and successful.
The best parts of my day are hearing little ones, as they are walking out, saying, “Mom! Can we stay and play?” “When can we come back?” “BEST DENTIST EVER!!” Seeing children be excited about getting their dental work done makes this so much easier and makes me want to fight harder for them.
I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost ten years now and we have four beautiful children. I always wanted to be a dad and now that I am, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I grew up in Ohio, lived in the Dominican Republic for two years, went to college at Southern Virginia University, and met my wife there. I have a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and love to use it. I am a huge fan of pro sports, specifically soccer and basketball. Being from Ohio, I root for Ohio State, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and FC Cincinnati.
