Trisha, Office Coordinator

Dentistry team member and patient discussing the cost of dental implants

While a newer team member, Trisha has worked in general dentistry for over twenty years! After graduating from the Columbus Paraprofessionals Institute, she worked as a dental assistant and in other roles before settling on her current job as an office coordinator. Being one of our more forward-facing staff, she likes meeting new people and helping patients obtain healthy smiles.


Outside the office, Trisha enjoys many of life’s quieter pleasures. Sometimes that means reading or doing crafts, while it can also mean spending time with her two sons.


Amanda, Dental Hygienist

Amanda has done us proud as a dental hygienist. That’s only natural – she quickly became certified once she earned her degree from Ohio State University! Plus, she gained valuable experience while working at her school’s Special Needs Dental Clinic. Her passion for helping patients and her community, too, is a crucial part of the job.


Still, Amanda loves non-dental activities just as well. She particularly likes reading, hiking, camping, and spending time with her large family. A lot of that makes sense when you know she grew up on a family farm raising cattle. (She even showed animals at the Perry County Fair.)


Alexzandria, Dental Assistant

Alexzandria has done fantastic work as our dental assistant for the last few years. Much of that is due to her First Impressions Dental Assistant Program training. The latter helped her become well-versed in dental treatments, radiology, CPR, and first aid. The result is that she loves working and helping patients receive healthier, shinier teeth!

Originally from Logan, Ohio, Alexzandria loves time with family and friends. The only daughter in her family, she has plenty of fun with her three brothers. She’s also a devoted “dog mom” to her two beautiful dogs – a Golden Doodle and a Labrador Retriever.

Katlin, Dental Hygienist

Katlin has an impressive 12+ years of experience in the dental field, and she was born and raised right here in Ohio! When it came time for her studies, she chose to attend West Liberty University, which is where she earned her bachelor’s degree. Throughout her career, she has also earned her certification in CPR and become licensed to administer local anesthesia. Plus, she’s worked in pediatrics, geriatrics, and everything in between. Serving her community is extremely rewarding and one of her favorite parts of being a dental hygienist.

At home, Katlin has a husband, two children, and two dogs. She loves spending time with them, going to sporting events, and having cookouts and bonfires in her free time. Here’s a fun fact about her: fall is her favorite time of year!
