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 dental fears.

I have raised two beautiful and amazing daughters who have become my very best friends. I have five granddaughters who have changed my name to GiGi, a name I wear with great pride and honor. Life is good!



Dental Assistant

As a chairside 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 mouthguards. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is seeing smiles transformed, whether during one or two procedures, or over two full years of orthodontic care. I love seeing people’s confidence and self-image change because of their smile.

I am a person who enjoys life and I stay busy all the time. I am a very active member of my church. My life has been very fulfilled with raising three children who have given me grandchildren & great-grandchildren.  I love spending time with them every chance I get. 




Front Office Administrator

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.  We have one son Zeppelin who is attending college & pursuing his dreams. 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 & human resources of our practice. I enjoy working in dentistry and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing dentist, Dr. Herron!

Dental Assistant

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 smoothly 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’ve been married for eleven years to my wonderful husband. Our daughter RyLeigh keeps us very busy! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, DIY projects and binge watching Netflix. My husband and I are foster parents with the hope of eventually adding a few more to our family through adoption.

Helping others has always been one of my passions, and my job as a dental hygienist allows me to do that every day!

Invisalign® Leader

I have a huge passion for helping others achieve straight teeth with no braces with the first name in clear orthodontic treatment, Invisalign. During my patients’ journey to straight teeth, I love being their copilot through the bumps in the road and the smooth sailing of their treatment. 

My most rewarding adventure is that with my husband Jeff and our children: Brandon, Brooklyn, and Boston.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring new cooking recipes and working off the new cooking recipes at the gym.
