Amanda - Registered Dental Hygienist

Registered dental hygienist Amanda

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 - Registered Dental Hygienist

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!

She also has advanced training in nitrous oxide and laser assisted periodontal therapy. Today, making patients feel comfortable alongside her amazing coworkers is her favorite part of her job.

When Jessica isn’t helping patients achieve optimal oral health, you can find her cooking with her husband, daughter, and dog. She also enjoys spending time in the great outdoors when the weather is cooler and watching Harry Potter or Disney movies on a rainy day!

Sandy’s love of dentistry began when she worked as a dental assistant in high school. Over 35 years later, she still loves creating a sense of family, comfort, and fun for patients of all ages. In fact, she goes above and beyond to use her extensive training and years of hands-on knowledge to make each patient’s dental experience one that they genuinely look forward to!

Outside the office, Sandy loves spending time with her husband, children, and two adorable granddaughters. She also loves trying out new recipes, which almost always include chocolate!

Diane – Dental Assistant

Dental Assistant Diane

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.
