Meet the Team



I love forming relationships and even friendships with our patients. It’s rewarding to be part of the cases from beginning to end and then catch up during their maintenance visits!

Carrie has worked in the field since 1995, starting as a dental assistant while attending hygiene school. She was a dental hygienist from 2000 to 2018, when she decided to retire from hygiene and move to the front office. Carrie helps our patients navigate and understand their dental needs and treatment plans from their initial consultation to the completion of restorative cases. She also schedules and follows up on any specialist appointments that might be needed. Carrie loves working in prosthodontics, as many patients have challenging needs and our practice is able to meet these needs with beautiful aesthetics, form, and function!

Carrie and her husband both grew up in Florida. The couple spent 20 years in Virginia Beach, while he served in the US Navy. The family was thrilled to return to Florida when he retired, and are pleased to have their two children attend school and grow up in this paradise.




My favorite part of the job is meeting new people, growing relationships with patients, and helping people leave with a smile on their face.

I like assisting the doctors in all types of hands-on treatment, learning new things, and educating patients about their oral health. When patients understand what will happen during their treatment, that helps them feel more comfortable. Seeing those healthy, beautiful smiles when we’re done is the best experience!
