Meet the Dental Assistants
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia! I attended Athens Technical College where I became a certified dental assistant in 2009. I became a part of Atlanta Dental Spa in 2012. This team is absolutely amazing to work with, and I'm lucky to call them my second family! My passion for dentistry came from my own experience when I had the opportunity to improve my own smile! There is nothing more rewarding than helping others achieve a confident new smile they love! Outside of work, I enjoy being with my husband, Alex and "furbaby" Hammer. Alex and I have been married since 2012, and we love spending time with our friends and family!
I started my dental assisting career in 2002 and joined Atlanta Dental Spa (ADS) in 2007. Before coming to ADS, I worked in practices where the focus was general dentistry only. Now at Atlanta Dental Spa, I have the wonderful opportunity to focus on the cosmetic aspect of dentistry and take part in smile makeovers! Reviewing before and after results is so rewarding and motivates me to continue my education is this exciting profession. Dr. Boulden has taught me a great deal, and I truly love what I do! My husband Jim and I married in December of 2005. We have two children, Logan and Marah. Both kids are active in sports, which keeps us very busy with football, baseball, and cheerleading!
I became a part of this amazing team at Atlanta Dental Spa in June of 2011. I have been in the field of dentistry since 2004, with a background in management. I fell in love with assisting and caring for patients, and I can not imagine any other profession for myself. What sets Atlanta Dental Spa apart is our unprecedented compassion for our patients. As one of our surgical assistants, I enjoy caring for our sedated patients and providing a calm atmosphere to relax in. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and I have a love/hate relationship with the elliptical.
I became a dental assistant in 2012 and was fortunate enough to join the ADS team in July 2014. My passion for dentistry motivates me to provide the absolute best care for all of our patients. I truly love what I do, and feel blessed to be a part of this amazing team. I was born in early 1980's San Antonio, TX (Go Spurs!) and relocated to Gwinnett County, Georgia in 1994. I enjoy forms of art, the great outdoors, and home improvement. When I'm not wearing scrubs, I am probably spending quality time with my family; my wife, Teresa, and lovely young daughter, Jacquelyn Fay.
Originally from the good ol' Midwest, I moved to Atlanta about five years ago. After getting the opportunity to travel the world, I decided it was time for me to follow through with some of my goals to pursue a career in the dental field. I'm so honored to be working with the best of the best. I'm definitely a people person and love working alongside Dr. Kirby and the rest of the team.
