Krystle, Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienist Krystle

For over 17 years now, Krystle has been one of our outstanding dental hygienists. She joined our office, in fact, right as she finished her dental hygiene program at Edison College. The latter education gave her knowledge of dental procedures and certification for administering local anesthesia. Consequently, she’s loved working with her patients and teammates from the start!

As a resident of nearby North Port, Krystle likes being “out and about” during her downtime. She enjoys being outdoors and on the water with her husband and two daughters. She’s also passionate about education and child services, often volunteering with autistic children.

Brandy, Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienist Ketia

Born in Kingsport, TN, Brandy began her career in the dental field by studying at Trident Technical College. She then went on to graduate from the Dental Hygiene School there. Now, with well over two decades of experience and continuing education, she loves helping around the office and getting patients to enjoy their healthy and beautiful pearly whites.

When she isn’t at the office beautifying people’s smiles, Brandy is likely spending time with her husband, her three children, and her grandkids. She also enjoys reading books and riding the motorcycle with her husband. An interesting thing about her: she went to 12 different schools from kindergarten to the 12th grade!

Ashley, Dental Assistant

Dental hygienist Ketia

Ashley is originally from Cape Coral, FL, and has several years of experience in the dental field. She started her career in dentistry by attending Florida Southwestern State College before studying at the Heritage Institute. Through her education, she was able to become an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant as well as earn her certifications in first aid, CPR, and radiology. Today, her favorite thing about her job is being able to make it possible for patients to be proud of their smiles.

When she isn’t at the office helping people improve and maintain their oral health, Ashley spends time with her boyfriend and their three children. Other than hanging out with family and friends, she enjoys the outdoors, visiting the beach, fishing, golfing, arcades, movies, and many other family-fun activities. She also loves to read, write, cook, and make birthday and wedding cakes, as she is highly creative!

Kateland, Dental Assistant

Dental hygienist Ketia

Kateland is a new valuable addition to our team! Her dental career started in 2013 and she brings both experience and a positive attitude and both are great assets to our office. She has a variety of interests outside of work, especially spending quality time with her son. Working out, going to the beach, and fishing are the ways she relaxes and recharges outside of the office.
