Angi

Office Administrator

I have been working in dentistry since 1995 and have witnessed many changes. One constant, however, are our providers at MDC. I am proud to say that I get to work with the best of the best! As a practice administrator I have various duties to keep our office running smoothly such as backing up all team members, scheduling meetings, hiring new employees, and overseeing daily operations. I try to be open and honest with all of our patients because I want them to feel like part of our dental family.

My husband, Clayton, and I have seven children and one dog. In the last year, our oldest has flown the coop and is off serving our country as a United States Marine. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, fishing, and of course shopping!

Tamara Sue

Financial Coordinator

My job is to help our patients understand their financial responsibilities with their dental care. Working in the front office of our dental practice brings me joy as I interact with patients, sharing stories with them and getting to know them on a personal level. I personally treat every patient like a guest in my home. Our doctors are very professional and want the absolute best for our patients at Meridian Dental Clinic. When I go home at night, I am at ease knowing our doctors have truly given their all, to each and every patient.

My husband and I have been married going on 24 years and have two young men in our lives, both in high school. Our family pet knows he is human and lounges around the house all day on the king pillow top. Yep, he is loved! Our family also enjoys the great outdoors as much as possible!

Something fun about me is that I love fast cars and love singing at the top of my lungs like no one is ever listening. I call these “Tamara Sue Concerts!”

At Meridian Dental Clinic there is always something fun going on! Like us on Facebook!

Kimberly

Restorative Scheduling Coordinator

I was originally drawn to the dental field because I believe in the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile. My experience in customer service and satisfaction insure that our patients have a wonderful experience in our office. I am passionate about getting and keeping our patients healthy and happy.  Often, I will be the first one to greet you with a smile when you arrive at MDC and I will know you by name! 
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and riding my horse, Zephyr.

Amy

Hygienist

As a registered dental hygienist for Meridian Dental Clinic, I have the pleasure of performing professional hygiene services, periodontal therapy, placing sealants and fillings, taking digital X-rays and intraoral photos, and making whitening trays. My favorite aspect of my job is educating my patients on how to improve their oral health and building trust with them. My goal is to provide a high standard of care to every patient I see. Over the years that I've worked as part of the Meridian Dental Clinic team, I've developed some incredible relationships with many patients and thoroughly enjoy seeing during their visits with us. 

On a personal level, I am married and have two grown children, two Siberian Huskies, and a cat. I am a big sports fan and love football, baseball, and hockey. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit!

Mollie

Hygienist

As a new member of Meridian Dental Clinic team, I am excited to build strong and lasting relationships with the wonderful patients at the office. One of the great aspects of MDC is the diversity that we have in our patient population. My goal as a hygienist is to treat and care for each patient individually according to their specific dental needs through preventive and therapeutic treatment as well as patient education.

Outside of work, I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities including hiking, canoeing and kayaking to name a few. I also love experimenting new recipes from one of my favorite websites, allrecipes.com. Three fun facts about myself: I am a twin, I have lived in four different countries (China, Japan, Canada, America), and "Friends" is my all-time favorite TV show. I have watched all ten seasons at least five times!

Rimi

Hygienist

The most enjoyable part of being a dental hygienist for me is getting to know my patients and spending time educating and informing them about their dental health. Helping patients who are actually happy to be at the dental office is truly gratifying for me. I am dedicated to continued growth in the dynamic hygiene field, expanding my abilities further, not only as a dental professional, but on a personal level as well.

Danielle

Dental Assistant 

I have a passion for working with people and know what a great smile can do for them. I value exceptional patient care and work hard to provide that for every patient. A desire to learn the latest advancements in dental care and technology are what first attracted me to Meridian Dental Clinic. My interest in CEREC dentistry makes me a perfect fit for our office, and my gentle nature makes me a favorite with patients and my fellow team members.

Shoshana

Dental Assistant

I love patient education. To me this is the most important part of my job. There is nothing more fulfilling then seeing the light bulb turn on when a patient completely understands their treatment and oral health. I have been in the Dental field since 2004, and joined Meridian Dental Clinic in 2017. I enjoy working with everyone at Meridian Dental Clinic, our team and patients are so supportive.

I am a Mother of three, I love music, traveling and spending time at the ocean. Yearly I have the opportunity to work with Emerald Downs and the Horsemen's benevolent association to provide low/no cost dentistry to the jockeys, trainers, groomers/exercisers. I find it very fulfilling and look forward to this community service.

Mindy

Dental Assistant

Dentistry is the key to a healthy and great life! As a registered dental assistant my main responsibility is to help the doctors with all dental procedures and presenting patients with treatment plans. My favorite part, however, is giving our patients the care they need and deserve.

I feel really lucky to have found this office. The doctors are the most understanding people I have ever meet. I have learned so much from them and still am. The other assistants and hygienists have all become my personal friends they are a great group of girls to work with. We are all like a big family.

I am a single mother of three boys; they are my life outside of work. I do love what I do and I do work a lot but all my other time is for them. My sons are all sports players. We love sports and watching them, being outside, and doing things like camping or hiking. We also love the sun and swimming! I am very thankful of my children and career that I have!

Dental Assistant

I am committed to patient care and want to be certain all patients in our office have a hospitable, relaxing and comfortable dental appointment. I want our patients to understand the benefits of the latest treatment advances in dental care and “job one” is making sure they get the smile they’ve always wanted and deserve!

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family and travel!  One of my favorite past times is taking pictures.

EFDA

I have been in the dental industry since 1996, I originally statred my career as a Certified Dental Assistant. In 2015 I completed the EFDA program and have been with Meridian Dental clinic since 2016. As an EFDA I place and carve fillings, design and take final impressions for crowns and work with the Doctors to ensure that you have a comfortable and enjoyable appointment in our office.

The doctors at Meridian Dental Clinic are wonderful to work with. I admire the amount of pride that goes into the work they provide our patients. Seeing my patients smile when they have completed treatment and knowing how much a restored smile changes their lives, in one of the resons I come to work each day.

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years. We have a cat and get to spend quality time with my Father since he lives with us. Our house is always busy and that is the way we like it. We try to live our lives to the fullest by working hard, traveling, camping and spending time with family and friends.
