Meet Our Team
Leola, Front Office Manager
“In our office, we are not just co-workers, we are more like a family. We love to do things together, even on our days off. Our entire team really cares about doing their best for our patients, all the time, whatever it takes. We love to help people smile, both as dental care professionals and as friends. We love to laugh, and that always brings a smile to everyone. I heard someone say a long time ago ‘If you see someone without a smile, give them one’, and that has stuck with me. I always try to greet our patients with a smile!!”

Cindy, Registered Dental Hygienist
“I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level and helping them with their dental needs. Sometimes people are anxious about visiting the dentist; we are very aware of this and always do our best to work with our patients at their pace so they feel relaxed and at ease while in our care.
I love being a part of this practice; we are like a big family. Everyone is fun and laid-back and is truly focused on creating the best patient experience possible.”

“I love to give our patients that ‘clean mouth’ feeling and help them learn more about their own dental health. I really enjoy meeting new people and developing relationships with them.
We have a very special doctor and team; we really are like a family. We all get along and are very close. Our patients are always our #1 priority. They are all so wonderful and appreciative; it is heart-warming when they share their gratitude with a big smile or a hug. Sometimes they even bring us food goodies which we love!”

Julie, Registered Dental Hygienist
“I always tell my patients that I used to be afraid of going to the dentist too! I overcame my fears when my dentist listened to my concerns and made me comfortable, and I try to do this with all of my patients today.
We intentionally spend a little more time with each patient so that we can make certain their needs are fully met while they are in our care. We have such a great family atmosphere; we really do enjoy your visit when you come to see us – be sure to arrive early and bring photos!”
Julie has been in dentistry since 1984. She received her degree in Dental Hygiene from Dekalb Community College in 1987.

Vicki, Dental Assistant
“We are a family-oriented practice; each of us enjoys working with patients of all ages. It has really been fun over the years to watch our patients grow up and have kids of their own. I have to say being a part of Mundy Mill Dental is one of the best blessings I have received in my life, and I am truly thankful for the God given opportunity to work with Dr. Martin and his staff and all the Mundy Mill Dental patients!
Dentistry today has more to offer than ever; it really is possible to keep your natural teeth for a lifetime. It truly amazes me the difference in technology today as compared to 35 years ago when I was in school, and I am excited to see what the future will hold.”
Vicki has been with our practice since 1984; she is a long-trusted friend and family member to all of us. Her dedicated work ethic and team spirit keep us running smoothly on a daily basis.
