        Since graduating from Augusta Technical College’s Dental Assisting Program in 2000 I have enjoyed working in pediatric dentistry. I was thrilled to join Dr. Perry in the opening of her new practice in 2009. Working with children has always held a special place in my heart. Knowing that parents can take their children to any dentist in the CSRA for dental care, I want to give them a reason to choose to Southern Smiles. Our courteous office staff will handle your scheduling needs as well as help you better understand your insurance. Our clinical staff will provide personalized care for your child making each visit special and memorable. I am willing to do whatever I can to help our parents and patients love being a part Southern Smiles! I was born and raised in Martinez, Georgia. I am a member of Warren Baptist Church where I am active in the preschool, children and women’s ministries. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jay, our two teenage children, and our three dogs.

I want both you and your child’s experience in our office to be a pleasant one! Outside of work, I enjoy shopping and spending time with family and friends.
