Office Manager and Financial Coordinator
My career in dentistry began in 1984 right here with Dr. Lynn Smith. I take care of our office’s financial responsibilities, insurance, and make sure the office runs smoothly from day to day. Because we see our patients for two to three years, I enjoy getting to know all about them and building a meaningful relationship with them. Each person is so different, especially the children, who seem to grow up right in front of my eyes!
For fun, I love to camp, shop, and go to the beach and mountains. I love to spend time with my cat, Gabby.
I joined Smith & Smith Orthodontics in June 2013. As an appointment coordinator, I have the pleasure of seeing each patient that comes through our office and I love providing efficient and compassionate service. Taking great care of our patients is a top priority for me.
My family includes my husband, Shawn, two children, son-in-law and a beagle. Gardening and going to the coast are two of my favorite pastimes.
I joined Smith and Smith Orthodontics team while completing my clinical rotations for the Dental Assisting Program with Central Carolina Community College. Upon graduating in July 2017, I was hired as an orthodontic assistant for the practice. I am also an appointment coordinator, so I have the opportunity to interact with our patients both clinically and administratively.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dustan and my sons, Brayden and Ryder.
Since 1989 I’ve worked with Dr. Lynn Smith, and now Dr. Brian Smith, to create truly beautiful smiles. I graduated from Lee County Senior High School and from the dental assistant program at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. I enjoy that my job lets me work one-on-one with our patients and allows me to build great relationships with them.
I am married and have two children and three grandchildren, so I spend my time outside of the office with my family.
Since 2001 I have enjoyed helping Dr. Smith create stunning smiles for our wonderful patients. There is nothing better than being able to see the confidence that a patient gains from beginning to end of treatment. It’s a great feeling to know that when I come to work each day, I have the chance to help change someone’s life for the better.
When not working at the office, I love hanging out with my husband Phillip and three wonderful children: Bryce, Brock, and Layce. I also enjoy teaching Zumba and staying active.
I graduated from the Dental Assisting Program at UNC-Chapel Hill in 1987.
I joined Dr. Smith in 1993 and work with our patients to ensure their orthodontic treatment progresses smoothly and on time.
I truly enjoy being part of such a wonderful, dedicated, and caring team of doctors and staff. I am married with two beautiful daughters Taylor and Savanna. In my free time I love trips to the beach, working out and spending time with my children watching them play sports.
I have 35 years of experience in orthodontics and joined Dr. Smith’s team in 1993.
Seeing our patients on a monthly basis allows for me to build strong relationships and I enjoy the different personalities encountered daily. It brings confidence to my job when I see second generation families return to our office, and making that reconnection.
Reading, running, volunteering, going to the beach, and my three grandchildren are what keep me active.
I started working as a dental assistant in 2003. In 2009 I completed a degree in dental hygiene and in 2014 I finished a Bachelor degree in dental hygiene. I started working with Dr. Brian in 2013, providing chairside assistance with placing, adjusting, and removing braces and appliances. I also teach patients about oral hygiene and appliance care, encouraging them to keep their mouth clean and healthy. I love spending my days around people who are changing their lives with new smiles!
My husband Bryan and I are blessed with our daughter, Macy, and we have a lab-retriever puppy, too! We enjoy spending time with loved ones, taking family hikes, and traveling.
I've worked in the medical field for over 12 years. I started working with Dr. Brian in May 2017 as an appointment coordinator. I have the pleasure of getting to know each patient that comes through our office, and I am committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable experience every time you visit. I feel very blessed to have been asked to be a part of such an amazing team.
My husband Allen and I have three wonderful children: Emily, Caleb, and Carter. I love spending my time with my family, crafting, and the beach. I am also involved with several organizations that serve my community.
Office Manager and New Patient Coordinator
I’ve been in the oral healthcare field since 1992, when I completed a degree in dental assisting/hygiene. I love being part of Smith & Smith Orthodontics! We have an incredible team and our patients are wonderful people. It’s amazing to watch a person transform! It’s a blessing to get to know patients on a personal level and experience part of their life during treatment. I manage our office, ensuring a consistent and effective flow. I also meet and work with our new patients and parents as they start their orthodontic journey. I love making them feel comfortable and excited about getting a new smile!
I’m a long-time resident of Pamlico County. My husband Richard and I have two boys, Trey and Christian, who are in high school, and a daughter, Lillie Grace, who’s in elementary school. I enjoy serving as the PTF president at the children’s school. I’m also a real estate agent. Our family loves sports, going to the beach, and playing cards and board games together.
I’ve worked in the field for about 20 years and joined Drs. Smith and our team in 2015. I love being part of helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams and getting to know them on a personal level. My favorite day is when we take off the braces and our patient can’t stop looking in the mirror and sharing their big, beautiful, happy new smile! I assist Dr. Brian with patient care, including changing wires and placing braces.
My husband Fred and I have four children: Mya, Carlee, Amy, and Alan. We also have three dogs. Fred works for GE and travels a lot, so I’m kept busy caring for the kids and our home.
