Meet The Staff

Katelyn- office manager

With nearly a decade of experience in dentistry, our office manager Katelyn is as well rounded as they come! Katelyn started her career in the field as an assistant, but she later fell in love with the problem solving and patient engagement that comes along with management. She is a jack of all trades, and she keeps our “engine” running smoothly. When Katelyn is not keeping everyone in line, she can be found playing with her dog Ellie Mae, riding around in a boat somewhere, or hunting with her family. Katelyn and her husband, Matthew, are proud to welcome their very first baby girl, Mattelyn, to the world!

Aura- receptionist

The newest member of our team is our lovely receptionist, Aura! She is a born and raised Johns Island local who found her passion for dentistry just a few years ago during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Aura says that her favorite part of the job is being able to see patients’ transformations and especially their confidence boosts even after the first visit! Aura’s enthusiasm and heart of gold make her a valued asset to our team. When Aura is not busy as the liaison between patients and providers, she loves spending time drawing, traveling to new cities, and getting in good quality time with her pup, Lucy!
