Holly – Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for over 20 years at Family Dental Associates.  I have definitely grown to love all of my patients and feel like each and every one of them is like my second family.  We have an amazing team here at Family Dental Associates and I can’t imagine working anywhere else.  In my spare time, I love any and all things involving animals, gardening, traveling, and simply spending time with family and friends.

I am a life-long resident of Eden and have been fortunate to be a part of Family Dental Associates for over 20 years.  I earned my dental hygiene degree in 2005 from Guilford Technical Community College and was awarded the Outstanding Dental Hygiene Student Award by GTCC staff.  I consider myself an experienced and talented dental hygienist with an attention to detail, but with a gentle touch.  I enjoy all of my patients and love educating them on proper hygiene habits and the many treatment options available to them.  I am married to my loving husband Harrison and have one son, Ford.

I am proud to be a native of Eden and graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at GTCC 16 years ago.  I enjoy talking to my patients to make them feel like family and thoroughly enjoy alleviating any dental fears and anxiety my patients may experience.  I have 3 boys and am married to my high school love.  In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to Smith Mountain Lake, and attending church functions and activities.

  

  

Evelyn – Dental Assistant

I have worked at Family Dental Associates since 1989.  I started out working at the front desk as a Hygiene Coordinator.  Then my dream came true in 2000 when I was given the opportunity to receive on-the-job training as a dental assistant; I attended GTCC in the evenings after work to obtain my X-Ray certification.  I am truly blessed to work at a job I love.  I have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren and am married to a wonderful man who has a son and granddaughter.  Outside of work, I enjoy being with my family, baking, and working in my garden.

I am a native of Eden and graduated from Morehead High School in 1989.  While attending Rockingham Community College, I worked part-time at Family Dental Associates as a file clerk.  Soon after, I was offered a position as a dental assistant and have practiced as a dental assistant for 32 years.  I thoroughly enjoy coming to work each and every day and serving the wonderful patients of Eden and the surrounding communities.  I have been married to my husband of 32 years and we have 2 adult daughters, 2 grandsons, and 1 granddaughter.  In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, sewing, and singing.
