Charissa
Aesthetic Hygienist

charissa I’ve been with ADS since August of 2009, but been practicing as a hygienist since 1996. I have always loved my profession, but since coming on with ADS and experiencing the team atmosphere, extensive continuing education and working with the latest technology, I have become beyond passionate about my opportunities to connect with my patients and become their total health advocate. Studies have presented overwhelming evidence connecting the health of our bodies to the health of our mouths and the opportunity to educate and care for patients to resolve possible medical complications has been so rewarding! I realize that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety for many people. It is my personal goal to provide an atmosphere of comfort, care and trust so that everyone can get the help they need and leave feeling good. Outside of the office I enjoy time with family and friends, experiencing the outdoors and staying healthy through good nutrition and exercise!

Amanda
Aesthetic Hygienist

amanda_ball-derwinski I have sp2nt the last 10 years as a dental hygienist here in Atlanta. In early 2011, I had the wonderful opportunity to become a part of the incredibly talented team here at Atlanta Dental Spa. I have never been more proud to be a part of such an innovative, state-of-the-art practice where our main goal is to educate every single one of our patients on the importance of their oral and systemic health. My top priority as a hygienist is to provide our patients with the care, education, and the support they need individually to reach optimal oral health. I was recently wed to my incredible husband Jeff, and we spend our time together focusing on our fitness, enjoying the great outdoors hiking or kayaking, cheering on the Braves and Falcons, and traveling wherever the road take us.

Brittany
Aesthetic Hygienist

I am from Warner Robins, Ga and moved to Atlanta about 3 years ago. It has always been a priority for me to work for a dental office that delivers the highest quality of care for their patients, so it truly feels like a dream come true to be a part of Atlanta Dental Spa. I understand the importance of having a healthy mouth and I am passionate about educating my patients on how it affects their overall systemic health. My goal is to motivate my patients on being proactive with their health and overcoming the stigma of dental care. When I am not in my active role of being a healthcare provider, I enjoy traveling, exploring Atlanta with friends, and creating memories with my family.

Victoria
Hygiene Assistant

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. Go Cowboys! I lived in Chicago, IL for about 2 years before I made my way back south in April 2016 to Atlanta, GA! I graduated as a certified dental assistant on January 2017 and could not be more proud to be a hygiene assistant at Atlanta Dental Spa! You can catch me working alongside our hygienist, Brittany and the rest of our amazing staff! Getting to know our patients and being able to make them feel comfortable is what I strive for! Outside of work I enjoy cooking, hanging out with friends, traveling, and exploring Atlanta!

Danielle
Aesthetic Hygienist

danielle Hi, My name is Danielle and I've been a dental hygienist since 2010. I recently moved to Atlanta from Grand Rapids, Michigan, for my husband's new job. My husband and I are very active and enjoy spending our free time at Piedmont Park and riding bikes on the Beltline. My goal as a hygienist is to help you achieve the best oral health and your desired smile, in a safe and comfortable environment. I feel Atlanta Dental Spa provides superior quality of service and a variety of options to create a smile that is not only healthy, but one you feel confident having. I enjoy getting to know patients and listening for ways to team together with them to exceed their expectations.
