Krystal is our "veteran" office manager. She has been with us since 1999. She originally trained as our dental assistant and has gone on to learn not only the front office duties, but also the intricate (and mostly frustrating) insurance part of the practice. Krystal could be found about anywhere on any given day, covering wherever she is needed in the office. Krystal and her husband enjoy riding their Harleys and vacationing at the beach.
Julie is our patient coordinator. She joined our team in September 2007. Julie handles the scheduling, billing, and putting up with Krystal. She enjoys her daughters; Morgan & Lily. She loves to read and be outdoors.
Paula is Dr. Ambler's long standing assistant. She is responsible for making sure everything is cleaned, sterilized and at Dr. Ambler's fingertips. Paula and her husband Terry have 2 daughters, Whitney and Carleigh and enjoy spoiling their 2 grandchildren Molly and Titus. Paula enjoys tending to our "office pals" (i.e. our cat family) with daily pampering.
Debbie is our full time hygienist and also has the distinction of having to have worked with Dr. Ambler the longest - bless her heart. She first joined the practice in 1978. Debbie has also worked with Dr. Gregg Codelli at his periodontal office. Because of her periodontal experience she is most knowledgeable about bone, implant and tissue problems of the mouth. She is happy to answer questions and educate her patients in better home care. Debbie has two children, Colin and Carrie.
Suzanne is our other hygienist, working one or two days a week at our office. We value her experience, her quiet yet very effective approach to helping out patients maintain their oral health. Raised in Atlanta, but having lived in the mountains since 2006, Suzanne thoroughly enjoys hiking, boating and gardening. She has a daughter; Rachel and a granddaughter Olivia.
Jennifer is our newest staff member, having joined us December 2013. Her young son Conner takes up most of her time, but she enjoys her Jeep life and family. A wonderful dental assistant, she will take good care of you!
