My dream vacation would be…?

I love traveling, so this is a really hard question to answer! A Euro-trip would be amazing—where I can visit multiple countries and experience different cultures. Ideally, I would stay with local families or in an AirBnb so I could eat home cooked meals and learn something new from the locals.

THE ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM

Kelly, Practice Manager

The strangest gift I ever received was…?

I got a pair of scissors as a high school graduation gift from one of my mother’s friends. I remember thinking that was such an odd gift to give a teenage girl. As it turns out they were one of the BEST gifts I ever received! I still have them—over 20 years later—and they are still as good as the day I got them!

RG2A9204 Dannah Ross BW.jpg

Dannah, Patient Care Coordinator

My favorite dish to cook is…?

I enjoy making meatloaf. My husband loves it AND we always have leftovers!

RG2A9307 Nicole Garcia BW.jpg

Nicole, Insurance Coordinator

My dream dinner guest is…?

Definitely Sir Paul McCartney! I would love to get firsthand knowledge of what it was like to be one of the creators of a music revolution, what his fondest memories are of his amazing career (that is still going strong today) and to hear how some of his, and of course the Beatles, most legendary songs came to be.

RG2A9167 Stephanie Hall BW.jpg

Stephanie, Treatment Coordinator

My guilty pleasure/binge watching obsession is…?

Hands down, Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve watched the entire series three times so far! I often have to remind myself that just because I’ve watched the show so much that I am, in fact, NOT a doctor.


HYGIENISTS

Beth, Hygienist

The most embarassing song in my music library is…?

I’m pretty sure this song was added when my boys were younger—it’s “Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer! LOL!

RG2A9078 Jeni Rakestraw BW.jpg

Jeni, Hygienist

My biggest childhood crush was…?

I had two—Tom Hanks (from Bosom Buddies) and Ricky Schroeder. I used to keep their posters in my closet and would hide in there and pretend we had our own secret club.

RG2A8747 Lyssa Oswald BW.jpg

Lyssa, Hygienist

A fact about me that surprises people is…?

A lot of people are surprised that I love the water and really everything to do with the outdoors. I enjoy hiking trails, wake boarding, and water skiing.

Deanna, Hygienist

The craziest fashion fad I ever fell victim to was…

Growing up in the 90’s there were quite a few, but there is one that I remember very vividly. I’m not sure who decided that layering a skirt OVER jeans was fashionable, but for preppy middle school girls it was definitely cool. Looking back at pictures what was I thinking?!? Hopefully that’s one fad that won’t make a comeback!


DENTAL ASSISTANTS

Tiffany, Dental Assistant

The movie I stop on every time I see it’s on TV is…?

“Home Alone”. It’s one of my all-time favorite holiday movies! It’s guaranteed to get me into the holiday spirit every time!

RG2A9000 Ian Hurley BW.jpg

Ian, Dental Assistant

My greatest travel story is…?

I spent a month studying in Italy. We stayed in a small town in Tuscany during the week and would travel to different cities every weekend. It was great because I knew almost nothing about Italian culture at the start of the trip, but by the end of that month I loved everything about it!

RG2A9011 Abby Tankersley BW.jpg

Abby, Dental Assistant

The working title for my memoir is…?

“I Think I Can! I Think I Can! I Think I Can!—The Little Engine That Could” Every day is an adventure! (I think that title might be taken already though!)
