When asked about what is the best thing about her job, Amanda said, “I enjoy talking to people. I especially feel accomplished when I can make people with previous negative memories of dentistry comfortable and happy to be receiving care.” In other words, her #1 goal is to give you every reason to smile while she cleans and polishes your teeth.
Amanda is originally from Lynchburg, and she received her hygiene training from Virginia Community College, graduating in 2010. She is married with two children, and when not at the office, she likes to spend time with her family and friends and travel whenever she can (in fact, she has already been to Disney World more than 25 times!).
Kindsay is a fantastic Dental Hygenist who has over 5 years in dentistry. She’s originally from Forest (Brookville High School) and she graduated from Virginia Western Community College. Kinday’s favorite part of her job is sharing her love for dentistry with everyone she meets. She enjoys educating patients on how to meet their needs and likes connecting with them on a personal level.
If Kindsay’s not with a patient, she may be out on Smith Mountain Lake with her husband and four children. They also enjoy annual trips to Myrtle Beach. Kindsay and her family began volunteering with organizations such as Hope Of Life International which has taken them internationally to places like Guatamala and Haiti. We appreciate her dedication to others!
Although Ericka is relatively new to our team, she has nearly 10 years of experience helping patients achieve pristine oral health. In addition to studying at VA Western Community College, she has advanced training in nitrous oxide, local anesthesia, and laser assisted periodontal therapy (LAPT). Today, her favorite part of her job is meeting new and interesting people each day!
When she isn’t helping her patients in the treatment chair, Ericka spends time with her husband, cat, and dog. She also enjoys baking and is a proud cancer survivor!
Holly just recently joined our Hygienist team after completing her education at Old Dominion University, following the beginning of her education at Virginia Western Community College. Holly has been in the dental field for 2 years and wanted to continue to pursue her passion for patients by being able to educate them about their oral hygiene and how it impacts their overall health. She is certified in local anesthesia, nitrous oxide sedation & laser assisted periodontal therapy.
Some of Holly’s favorite hobbies outside of the dental office include traveling, hot yoga, watching live music and attending comedy shows. Of all the activities she enjoys in her free time, spending time with her sister and two sweet nephews in North Carolina is at the top of the list.
Jenna joined our office with a few years of experience in dental assisting. She is originally from Bedford, VA and studied Criminal Justice at Liberty University. She really enjoys the team here at Crossroads Family Dentistry, and credits her coworkers and doctors as her favorite part of the job.
Outside of work, Jenna enjoys spending her time with her husband and two dogs. Together, they hike, cook and spend time at the lake, where Jenna enjoys wake surfing.
Diane brings over 40 years of experience to our practice, but she is constantly learning. Recently, she’s learned that she really enjoys painting. In our practice, she loves seeing patient’s smiles emerge.
Born in Racine, MI, she grew up in Tucson, AZ and studied at the Arizona College of Medical and Dental Assisting. However, she’s made Lynchberg her home after living here for 33 years. As a dental assistant, continuing education is important to her, and she’s been a certified CDA for 20 years. Our patients are in great hands with Diane.
Outside of the office, Diane enjoys family time with her children and grandkids. Diane also sings in her church’s choir and expresses her worship through liturgical dance. She loves to give back with her time, whether volunteering at foodbanks, or going on medical and dental mission trips. Her volunteering efforts have taken her as far as Jamaica, or kept her close to home here in Central VA.
