“I love the challenge of helping patients who have bite or esthetic issues. Many times these two items are linked together and we can achieve excellent results when they are both addressed. Patients are thrilled when they find out how comfortable their bite can actually be.”

Charley is one of our three dental hygienists. She developed a passion for the sciences and a desire to help others at an early age. While working as a dental assistant in college, she was pleased to discover that becoming a dental hygienist would allow her to utilize both of these characteristics. She strives to help each and every patient obtain the healthy smile they deserve and will go out of her way to make sure patients feel comfortable and right at home! Outside of the office Charley enjoys exercising, boating on the lake, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
