Office Manager/Dental Assistant
I do whatever it takes to keep our practice running as smooth as possible, from managing the office to assisting Dr. Herron when needed. Working directly with patients is my favorite thing to do, and I feel great if I can help an anxious patient overcome their dental fears. I have raised two beautiful and amazing daughters who have become my very best friends. I have four granddaughters who have changed my name to GiGi, a name I wear with great pride and honor. I love life!
As a chair side assistant, it is my duty to see that our patients are comfortable and to help each procedure go smoothly and efficiently. I also help keep the lab running smoothly and do most of the fabrication of retainers, appliances, and mouth guards. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing smiles transformed, whether during one or two procedures, or for two full years during orthodontic care. I love seeing people’s confidence and self image change because of their smile. I am a person that enjoys life and I stay busy all the time. I am a very active member of my church. Family is very important to me as well, so I love to spend time with my children and grandchildren. When I get leisure time, I love renting a good movie, cranking up the surround sound, and just relaxing.
Front Office Assistant
I’m one of the friendly faces that greet each patient when they come into the office. I love getting to know our patients and working with our amazing team. We are much more like a family than coworkers. I live in Columbus with my husband, Tyler, and our son, Zeppelin, who keeps us busy with sports and numerous other activities. We love living in Columbus and being a part of this community. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling and seeing new places.
I am responsible for the financial aspect of our practice. I enjoy working in dentistry and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing dentist, Dr. Herron! I graduated with a major in Accounting and minor in Business Administration from Missouri Southern State University. I have been married for 31 years to my high school sweetheart. We have a very spoiled Maltese named Zoe.
I work on all things social here at Dr. Herron's! I love being a part of such a great team where everyone works hard to make YOU feel special! My husband, Ty, and I live in Girard where we raise our daughter, Kendall. I stay very busy during football and wrestling seasons watching my husband coach the Chanute Comets!
As a dental assistant I enjoy taking care of patients and their dental needs. I am dedicated to providing quality care to all dental patients. It is a pleasure and honor to work with such an outstanding team of professionals. Family is very important to me. I reside in Pittsburg with my husband, Matt. We have been blessed with two beautiful children, Zach and Dante.
As a child I knew that one day I would work in a profession helping others. As a dental assistant I get to do just that. My job is to ensure that procedures go as smooth as possible for the patient as well as for the doctor. It is such a blessing to work with an amazing group of individuals. I live in Riverton with my husband Cory and daughter RyLeigh. My daughter keeps me very busy with sports and social events. When I have a few days to escape I enjoy returning to my childhood home and relaxing by the fire pit with my wonderful grandparents, mother, and the most amazing little brother anyone could ask for.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Helping others has always been one of my passions, and my job as a dental hygienist allows me to do just that. I truly enjoy getting to help people better their oral health, as well as their overall health. It is a blessing to be able to do so with such an amazing and professional team of co-workers. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Adam, for over four years. When we get the chance we love to be working outside in our yard, going to the lake, or traveling (especially to our hometown Dodge City).
Registered Dental Hygienist
As a dental hygienist, I strive to provide quality dental hygiene care for our patients. I really enjoy helping others achieve healthier smiles and improve their overall health. I am so thankful to be part of this wonderful team! I am engaged to my high school sweetheart, Dale. In my free time, I love to spend time with family, friends, and our black lab, named Buck.
I love my job as a dental assistant. Who wouldn't love to see people regain their smiles every day? As a child, I wouldn't smile because of my teeth. Now, I am very passionate about helping others with theirs. Whether a patient comes to us in pain, or out of concern, I want them to walk out of our doors with a sense of relief and a happy, healthy smile. What’s better is that I work with an incredibly skilled team of dentists and staff who all possess that same desire. We have the best patients and we believe our patients deserve the very best care! My husband, Bryson and I live in Altamont where our family runs a farming operation. Amongst corn, wheat, beans and cattle, we are raising a little farm boy Gentry.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I take great pleasure in assisting people achieve optimal oral and total body health. Most of my patients are like family and I’m passionate about helping each one. I have over 10 years of dental experience prior to becoming a hygienist in 2007. In my free time, I enjoy hunting with my family and cheering on my two sons, Wes and Wil, at various athletic events.
