Our Team


We are proud of our team of caring dental professionals! Our individual journeys brought us together, but we share our passion for bringing the best that dentistry has to offer to each of our valued patients. Read our bios to learn a little more about us:


maria joseMaria Jose

Maria Jose earned her Master's degree in social research in 2002, then co-authored a book about evaluating social programs. Maria worked her way up the ladder in the Supreme Court of El Salvador, eventually becoming coordinator of the Court's social workers. She was a frequent lecturer and conference organizer on the topic of domestic violence, and occasionally appeared on national television.

All this changed when she immigrated to the United States with her two children in order to marry Dr. Henry. She still uses her background as a social worker by doing volunteer family counseling at First Baptist Church of Peachtree City.

You are most likely to encounter Maria Jose in our business office assisting Spanish-speaking patients. But occasionally she can be coaxed into the operatories to assist her husband with dental procedures.

In her spare time, Maria Jose likes to read fiction, especially books by Danielle Steele. She says that the best thing about working at our office is allaying patient fear, and communicating with Spanish-speaking patients.


joyce dental hygienistJoyce
Registered Dental Hygienist

Joyce grew up in the Lakewood area of Atlanta. While still a teen, a dentist in her neighborhood trained her in dental assisting. When he tried to get her interested in attending dental school, Joyce compromised and became a dental hygienist instead. She has been helping patients maintain good oral health ever since, even when she owned and managed a restaurant!

With her two children having completed college, Joyce has more time to tend the gardens in her 100+ year old Fairburn house. Another favorite activity is going SCUBA diving with friends.

After being a hygienist for more than 35 years, you would think Joyce might want to slow down, but she is working as much as ever. Joyce says the best thing about her job is caring for patients, and teaching them how to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. Joyce brags that she has wonderful patients, many of which have become her close friends. She considers her patient population to be part of her extended family!


barbara dental hygienistBarbara
Registered Dental Hygienist

Barbara was one of those employees we liked so much, we convinced her to return to work a different job!

Barbara has an interesting life story. She was born and raised in the Cajun country of Louisiana. Her father's job moved the family to the hot deserts of California, where she worked 25 years as an assistant for the same dentist. Wanting a change in life after her long-time employer retired, she moved to Georgia in 1994 and worked for us as an assistant. She was dearly loved by all our patients.

Barbara took two years off to attend the dental hygiene school program at Clayton State. After graduation, she worked for a Buckhead dentist until he retired. After being assured that Dr. Henry was not going to retire anytime soon, she returned to work as a hygienist in our office. Now she has a much shorter commute with less traffic.

Barbara has two children. Her daughter Susan lives in Texas, and her son Matt and his wife have blessed her with a beautiful granddaughter. You've got to respect a woman who does all her own yard work! When she is not cleaning teeth, her house, or her yard, Barbara likes to read.


dianeDiane
Dental Assistant

Diane started her life in Germany, a child of an Army family. She grew up to follow in her father's military footsteps, joining the Navy to be trained as a dental assistant. Can you believe it? At the same time as Dr. Henry was treating Marines at Camp LeJeune, NC, Diane was treating them just down the coast at Paris Island, SC.

Even after she got out of the Navy, Diane moved around a lot because her husband was a Marine. Therefore, she worked for a lot of dentists, many of them specialists. Her last job was assisting an oral surgeon, doing front desk as well as surgical assisting.

Diane finally settled in Fayetteville. In her leisure time, Diane likes to scuba dive, travel, and spend time with her two daughters and grandchildren.

Diane thinks the best thing about working in our practice is the comradary, teamwork, kindness, and respect all the employees have for each other and for the patients they care for. We are fortunate to have such an organized and experienced dental assistant working for us!


gailGail
Front Office Assistant

Many of you long-time patients remember Gail. She worked for our practice until 2005, when her husband was transferred to Texas. When she recently returned to metro Atlanta, we had a staff opening. Gail honored us by agreeing to work in our practice again.

Gail has one son named Grant who is attending college in Texas. In her spare time, Gail likes to read, cross stitch, and cook. She says the best thing about working in dentistry is meeting and helping different people.

The first contact you will have in our office is Gail, who most often answers the phone. She is also the go-to person about insurance issues.
