Hello, my name is Crystal and I am a Dental Assistant. I’ve worked at the office since September, 2009. It was a blessing that I was selected for the job and I was treated as a part of the team right away.
I was born and raised in Carter County. I graduated from Happy Valley High School with Honors the Spring of 1998 and entered East Tennessee State University that Fall. I was accepted into the University’s Dental Assistant program. I received my certification in 2000. I am licensed by the Tennessee State Board of Dental Examiners in nitrous oxide monitoring, radiology, and am trained in basic life support. I also hold certifications in Infection Control and OSHA Regulations for dental offices and have my certification for expanded functions to place Sealants and do Coronal Polishing. I have found that being a Dental Assistant for over fifteen years has given me a greater understanding of the needs of my patients and the ability to make their experience in our office as pleasant and stress free as possible.
I current reside in Johnson City with my husband, Jay and two beautiful children , Noah and Kaleigh. Our life is very active with Volleyball, Basketball, and Fishing. The Lord has truly blessed me with a wonderful family and work staff.
While working with the practice, I have had the opportunity to attend many continuing education courses. I feel it is very important to our practice, and the patients we treat, to continue to learn and stay up to date on the changes within the dental field. I am committed to treating my patients with the utmost care and compassion. My goal is to treat all patients the way I would want to be treated… AS FAMILY!
