Elizabeth has played an instrumental role in the life of this practice, having been here from day one! With more than 30 years of experience in dental healthcare, Elizabeth possesses a wide range of dental knowledge, from hygiene, front office management, and chairside assisting to HIPAA compliance and infection control. Elizabeth received her dental hygiene license from the State of Alabama in 1999. Her goal is to ensure our patients receive consistent, personalized, gentle care that is of the highest standard.
Elizabeth is the proud mom of three beautiful, intelligent, and outstanding-in-every-way children: Rachel, Abigail, and Greyson. Outside of her passion for dentistry, she enjoys time with her children and traveling the globe.
Raised in Selma, Audrey is a 1998 graduate of Dallas County High School. After working with children as a dental assistant for seven years, in 2005 Audrey received her dental hygiene license from the State of Alabama. She joined our team in October 2006 and quickly made a big impact on the practice and with our patients. Audrey’s top priority as a hygienist is to provide the care, education, and the support our patients need to reach and maintain optimal oral health. She realizes that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety for many people. It is her personal goal to provide an atmosphere of comfort, care, and trust, so everyone can get the help they need, without stress, and leave feeling good about their visit and happier about their smile.
Audrey relocated to the Eastern Shore in 2006, where she lives with her husband Lonny, their son Hayden, and their Beagle named Tag. Audrey loves to be outside and on the water, party planning, and spending as much time with Hayden as possible.
