Meet the Staff

traciTraci M.

Office Manager

Being the practice’s office manager, I handle the insurance billing, accounts receivable and payable, collections, payroll, and confirming patients’ insurance benefits. I also help the office by ordering office supplies and scheduling appointments for patients. I love working with our patients’ parents to help answer any questions they have about their insurance coverage. Knowing that I help parents facilitate those beautiful smiles on their kids’ faces is the greatest reward I could ask for.

aI have two children - Joshua, who is stationed in New Mexico with the US Airforce is now married, and Jonathan, who is pursuing his career.  In my leisure time, I love to read, play Wii Fitness, and watch the Cleveland Indians.  Also, whenever I am able to get away, I love going on vacation with friends and family.

Front Desk

At Pediatric Dentistry, I am another one of the smiling faces at the front desk. I check patients out, assist with phone calls, schedule appointments, co-coordinate IV sedations with anesthesiologists, send out monthly billing statements, post insurance payments, and verify our patient’s insurance coverage. I cherish the moments when our little patients show off to me their shiny new smiles after their appointments and they then pick a toy out of our toy box. We are all grown up children in our office, so we love to keep our environment fun and energetic.

My husband, Dave, and I have been married for 25 years, and we have two children who are in college. We also have a big dog named Otis at home. I love going out to dinner with my family, going to the beach, and traveling with Dave. Some of my other favorite actives are reading, spending time at the pool in the summer, and skiing in the winter.

Receptionist

As one of our receptionists for the office, you’ll find me at the front desk, welcoming patients as they arrive, scheduling appointments, answering the phone, and checking patients out. It’s a joy to come to work each morning, knowing I’ll spend my day around the most amazing people: our patients! I love watching them grow up into wonderful young adults who are enthusiastic about their oral health.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy working out, traveling, playing volleyball, hiking, and spending quality time with my family and friends.

 

kristanKristan

Office Assistant

I help make sure our patients' experience in our office is stress free by checking in patients for their appointments, scheduling future visits, and verifying insurance coverage. I enjoy seeing all the new patients for their very first dental visit, and watching as they grow up into young adults with healthy, beautiful smiles. Drs. Iten and Gregg have such upbeat, caring, positive attitudes that is hard not to smile from ear to ear whenever I come to work.

At home, I have two children. We spend our time reading and watching Buckeye football and basketball!

 

vanessaVanessa

Assistant/Front Desk

I am an assistant as well as a front desk receptionist at Pediatric Dentistry. I help around the office with patient care, assisting the doctors and the hygienist, and scheduling appointments. I love how hard we all work to make sure our patients trust us and feel comfortable, and it is the best part of my day to see kids excited about coming to the dentist. Everything about our practice is in place with kids in mind, and our patients really do love our office. Growing up, I wanted to be a Veterinarian, but after seeing how rewarding it is to work with children, I am so thankful for what I do now.   

My husband Justin and I have a beautiful daughter named Taylor at home.  I also have three wonderful step children, Kaitlyn, Jayden, and Gabriel, and we love to play with our dogs, Bella and Harrison. In my free time, I love playing volleyball and softball, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

 

amandaAmanda

CDA

Hi, my name is Amanda and I work as a certified dental assistant with the coronal polishing license, as well as working the front desk.  My duties include scheduling appointments, calling our patients to confirm appointments, checking patients out, and fielding phone calls. I also have my radiography certificate, so whenever the ladies in the back need my help, I am able to jump over and help where I’m needed! Since I interact mostly with the parents of our patients, it is important for me to try to see things from their perspective. As a mother myself, I understand how daunting things like dental care for your child can seem, so I always try to be as understanding and helpful as I can.

My husband, Brock, and I have a little angel of a daughter of 8 years named Alexis, and our dog, Riley. We love our family movie nights, and Alexis and I love to do crafts together (lots of scissors and glue!). We all love being outdoors, going for walks, and playing cornhole.

 

samanthaSamantha

Assistant

Here at Pediatric Dentistry, I am a dental assistant, so I assist Dr. Iten chairside during appointments and help children learn about good oral hygiene. Our doctors are such a joy to work with because they are patient with our children, and they love to fill our office with laughter. Making kids smile is the best part of my job and I love that I get to do that every day.

I am recently married to my best friend, Wayne, and when I’m not in the office, I love to spend time with him. I also enjoy playing with my American Bulldog, Hogg. Some of my other favorite activities are fishing, camping, hanging around a bon fire.

 

taraTara

Assistant

In our office, I am a dental assistant, so I help Drs. Iten and Gregg chairside and by providing general patient care. Being able to see the smiles on the faces of our kids is awesome and it is definitely my favorite part of my job. I also love working with such a loving and thoughtful staff. Our doctors are amazing with our kids, and you can tell they really love what they do. Even though we all connect with our patients so well, I think I have an advantage because of my height; kids sometimes think I am a kid!

At home, my wonderful husband Cyril and I have a four-year-old  Havanese named Tilly Cinderella and a three-year-old Yorkie-Poo named LuLu. When I’m away from the office, I loving spending time with my incredible family and working out.

 

aneshaAnesha

Dental Assistant/Front Desk

I have worked with children since 2003, first as a teacher and now as a dental assistant. I work alongside the doctors while they' re filling cavities or cleaning the little ones' teeth. I also talk with parents and explain what went on during the appointment. I love helping the kids feel better about being at the dentist and interacting with all their fun personalities. Our doctors are wonderful people, both so knowledgeable and willing to teach us. Everyone helps one another as a successful team should.

I recently had my dream wedding on the beach and married my best friend Bob.  I have two fabulous teenage boys, Tyler and Parker, and love to watch them play baseball and wrestle.  I gained four wonderful stepchildren that also keep me busy at the ball fields.  In my free time I enjoy running, spending time with my family, and of course vacationing at the beach!  

 

lisaLisa

Dental Assistant

I graduated from Madison Adult Education and received my CODA license, which allows me to assist both doctors, take X-rays, and help to calm any anxious patients. I love working with kids! They make each day brighter with their smiles, stories, and laughter! Everyone here is fun to be around and really excels at providing excellent care!

I enjoy working out and shopping with my mom. I love spending time with my family and friends. Right now, I'm attending North Central State College and will be applying for dental hygiene school in the fall!

 

eileenEileen R.

EFDA

In addition to being a certified dental assistant at our practice, I am also an EFDA, so I am able to place fillings and sealants on the teeth of our little patients. In our office, we are all like big kids ourselves, so we love having as much fun as we can with our kids. Our doctors make our office such a lively and fun environment, and they are so good and caring with our patients and their parents. I feel blessed to work for such a caring and loving practice. The best part of my job, by far, is getting that big hug from our kids at the end of their appointment!

At home, I have a son, Josh who lives in Dayton Ohio and recently engaged to his girlfriend Taylor, and a step-daughter, Jordyn who lives in Columbus. My husband, Jeff, and I are big time dog lovers, so our house is also filled with our two four-legged children: our rescue dog, Willy (black and tan Coonhound) and our latest edition Wrangler (French Bulldog) with loving memory of Hooch (Bulldog) and Ginger (German Shepherd). In my free time, I love snow skiing and snowboarding, camping, and reading. But more than anything, I love spending time with my family and friends.

>Dental Hygienist

I am a dental hygienist in our practice, so I spend my time educating our little ones about how to best take care of their smile, conducting preventive treatments, and applying sealants to the little teeth of our patients. The entire staff and doctors are so caring of our patients and their parents, and I love how committed our office is to the happiness and health of the kids who come to see us. Knowing that I contribute to the healthy life habits of the kids I see each day is incredibly rewarding.

At home, I am married with two children, and when I have some time to myself, I relax by reading, weaving, and beading. Also, I have been a camp counselor for the past six years.

 

tiffanyTiffany

Dental Hygienist

I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2002 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in dental hygiene, and I am a registered dental hygienist for our practice. I help our patients by cleaning their teeth, taking radiographs, providing fluoride treatments, and teaching great dental hygiene tips to both our patients and their parents. I love interacting with all the patients who come to us for treatment, and I really love to hear about what’s going on in their lives outside of the office. Our doctors are always so upbeat and energetic, and they always show our patients how much they care about them.

I am a wife and mom of three, and I love the time I get to spend with my family. When I have free time, I enjoy reading, shopping, attending my kids’ school and sporting events, and vacationing with my family. We are also very active in our church and community activities. I also devote time to continuing my dental education so that I can provide our patients the best care available.

 

heatherHeather B.

Dental Hygienist

My name is Heather, and I am one of Dr. Iten and Gregg’s registered dental hygienist. I often tell the parents of our patients, “there is no parenting handbook on dentistry…” so the real joy I take from my work here is being able to teach parents and patients about how to best care for their smiles. The relationships I build with our patients and their parents are what make coming to work every day so rewarding. In addition to providing dental and hygiene education, I also assist with preventive procedures and implementing new and current dental trends and research into our practice.

My husband and I have a son in college, Brandon, a little boy, Chase, and a Yorkshire Terrier, Gidgette. I enjoy scrapbooking, traveling, playing sports, and coaching basketball and softball. I’m also involved with my church and spend a lot of time volunteering in the community.

 

bethBeth

Dental Hygienist

Patient education is my favorite part of my job as a dental hygienist. I love teaching the little ones how to brush and floss, and love it even more when they leave an appointment smiling! We have a lot of fun together! I am so thankful to be part of an office full of genuine, caring people who love working with kids.

My husband, Wynn, and I have three children. Tanner is in college at Indiana University studying sports marketing and management, and our twins Olivia and Mason attend Lexington High School. We also have a dog named Nala. The kids keep us pretty busy with all their sports and activities, but I like to find time to dance and go for walks. Spending quality time with my family and friends is a must!

 

susanSusan

Dental Hygienist

My patients, by far and away, are the best part of my job! I love to get to know each child personally so I can give them the individual care they deserve, and hopefully make them laugh a little, too. I understand that many kids are scared of the dentist, but I work hard to give them a positive, gentle experience. Everyone at our office is so kind; I always leave work with a smile because I’m surrounded by such wonderful, caring people.

My husband, Joe, and I have four children, Regan, Riley, Alyson, and Cooper, as well as a dog named Tyler and a cat, Ozzy. When I’m not busy with them family, I enjoy playing tennis and golf, skiing, and swimming.
