Our Staff

We are especially interested in making all our patients feel right at home! We put your needs first to achieve efficient and comprehensive treatment. Our staff is trained and skilled, and we strive to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each patient. Our clinical staff members possess privileges to dental assist in the Operating Room of the Children's Hospital of the King’s Daughters. They also possess the kind of personalities which interact well with children. It's the kind of job that SELECTS you, not that YOU select! We strive to stay abreast of the very latest in technology and advances by regularly attending local and regional continuing education courses and seminars.

Dental Assistant

Brandy My name is Brandy and I am a versatile Georgia Girl living in Virginia. I worked in general dentistry for 2 years. It was there that I realized that adult patients were “Boring.” I have been working at Eastern Virginia Pediatric dentistry for 13 years where I enjoy the daily challenges of working with unpredictable children. I have a strong passion for special needs children. In my spare time you can find me surrounded by children at sporting events, musical events, and festivals. You can often find me with my Bestie Dudley at your local Library or Preschool.
