Crissey - Hygienist
The first word that comes to mind with Crissey is "sweet."  She's a very gentle personality that carries over to dental hygiene appointments.  She has won over many patients who have had previous bad dental experiences through her sincerity, gentleness and concern for her patients.  Watch out for her witty sense of humor! She and her husband have two boys and she enjoys spending time with family, working in her yard, cooking, bird watching, kayaking and is addicted to Jeopardy!

Angela - Front Office Administrator

Angela is very much a "people person" and is the social center for our office, both staff and patients.  She has a wealth of experience as a chair-side assistant and currently works as our front office administrator.  She happily will answer any questions you may have about procedures, billing, insurance and scheduling.  She comes from a very large family originating in Charleston.  She loves spending time with her family and playing bunco!

Tammy - Hygienist

Tammy has a very loyal following from her patients, and for good reason.  She becomes friends with many of her patients and gets to know them on a personal level, keeping track of their family and their lives.  She is sincere in her relationships with people and intangibly shows genuine concern for her patients.  She loves the sun, sand and water and will often be found near the beach or water when she's not working with friends and family.

Lana - Chair-side Assistant
