Front Desk Coordinator
I enjoy working with our patients on a daily basis, and getting to know each of them and their families. As I welcome and check them in, schedule appointments, and handle their billing and insurance questions, we have time to chat. It’s always good to hear their latest news and see their pleased smiles when I check them out at the end of their appointment. We have an amazing team here, and our patients are part of our family!
Outside the office, I love being with friends and family. My husband Trevor and I were married in 2015 and we’re expecting our first baby — son Tatum — in September 2018.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I love my patients! I love getting to really know each of them and always treat them as part of my own family. I provide adult and child dental cleanings, deep scaling and root planing, and offer a lot of homecare education. When a person makes changes and I see a clean, healthy mouth at a recall visit, I’m thrilled! It’s a good feeling to be part of a team that is an extension of my family. We genuinely care about each other and our patients.
My husband John and I have been married for 25 years. We have three children, a grandbaby, and three sweet fur babies. I attend The Vine church, where I am a greeter and help decorate our kids’ worship area. I love to be outside and enjoy walking, traveling, eating, and wine tasting.
I like helping our patients toward achieving optimal oral health in a thorough yet gentle manner. Working one-to-one with patients, I evaluate the person’s oral health and provide a range of preventive dental care. During visits, I share with patients the ways they can improve and maintain their oral health, which improves their quality of life. At our office, patients are the foremost priority and we’re dedicated to personal, gentle care.
When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy time spent in my garden, being active outdoors, and being involved at church.
I enjoy getting to know each of my patients on a personal level: learning about their lives and who they are. This fosters trust and also gives me insight into how I can help each person develop stronger oral health. I meet new patients and help them get established with the office. I also clean teeth and provide a lot of oral hygiene instruction. This practice is like a family; all of us care about and support each other so we can keep our patients smiling and healthy!
My free time is often spent cooking and gardening. I’ve been married for more than 20 years and love time with my husband, two children, and our family dog.
Dental Assistant and Front Office Supporter
I like that I float between the back office and the front. I’m always learning new things, enjoy talking with and becoming friends with our patients, and making sure they have good visits. In the clinic, I offer chairside assistance to Dr. Cooney during procedures. In the front office, I handle a range of tasks, as needed. I love working with this team because we help each other, love each other like family, and really care about our patients’ health and happiness.
Born and raised in Texas, I’ve lived here since 2012. My husband and I have a son who was born in May 2015. I love to spend weekends with my family and, when I have free time, I love to go to wine tastings and breweries.
I like talking with our patients, get to know them, and help each feel comfortable in our office and with their treatment. I work in the clinic, where I take X-rays and impressions. I also assist Dr. Cooney with procedures, including amalgam and composite fillings, crowns, bridges, and partials. Whenever possible, I assist in the front office, too. My teammates are part of my family and we do everything possible to keep our patients comfortable, healthy, and smiling.
I’m a native of Gwinnett County. My husband and I have been married for 20 years and have two children as well as two Beagles. When we’re able to, we enjoy being with extended family and friends. Our family attends Victory World Church at Hamilton Mill. We are all very involved and enjoy being part of many activities.
