Meet The Team

Sarah, Office Coordinator - staff

Sarah, Office Coordinator

Willie Nelson once said, “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”

I am an optimist who thrives in a busy environment, working behind the scenes and at the front to ensure a smooth day at the office. My co-workers are fantastic and make my day even better! 

As an Office Manager for several years, one thing that I can’t get enough of is the sight of patients who have learned to love their smile again. I love helping people with any financial questions so that they can get the smile they deserve. When I’m not at work, I enjoy being outdoors, riding ATVs with my husband Audie, and playing with my two kids, Abigail and Gavin.

Carrie, Receptionist/Assistant

As Bill Hybels states, “Storms draw something out of us that calm seas don’t.” 

I have always felt a pull to the service industry as well as a challenge. Prior to working at WADC, I was a nutritionist for WIC. I grew up in the Gettysburg area, attended Penn State, and knew I wanted to be involved in helping others.  Working at a dental office, I love being the first person patients see and helping them as needed while they improve their smile and their confidence.  When I am not in the office, I enjoy taking walks with my dog Olive in Fort Loudon, spending time with my husband Taylor, going to the beach, and camping with family and friends.

Stephanie, Hygienist - staff

Stephanie, Hygienist

Dr. Seuss, a wise philosopher, once said, “Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.”

I’ve started several new journeys over the past few years, but at the close of one journey, I always appreciate everything I’ve learned and jump headfirst into the next one. I wanted to be a Hygienist because I love getting to know new people and helping them focus on how oral health affects their overall health. Teeth may be small and contained in our mouths, but they can affect our entire bodies! 

I received my degrees in Dental Hygiene with a focus on healthcare policy and administration from Pennsylvania College of Technology, and love what I do to help patients achieve and maintain healthy smiles. When I’m not Chief Tooth Cleaner (self-titled), I enjoy spending time with my husband, Nate, my daughter, Edith, and my chihuahua, Annabelle and her Poodle Sister, Genevieve. I also love long distance running, yoga, reading, and knitting.

Cindy, Dental Hygienist

Walt Whitman once said, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”  

I began my dental career as an orthodontic assistant. I enjoyed the field so much that I decided to further my education in dentistry, and graduated from Allegany College of Maryland as a registered dental hygienist. Over my career, I’ve obtained a background in orthodontics, periodontics, and general dentistry. I hold a license in Pennsylvania and Maryland, and am certified to administer local anesthetics to my patients. I have also volunteered my time and skills with Dentistry from the Heart, Convoy of Hope, and more recently, Med Camp. My goal is to provide quality care, compassion, and comfort to my patients in the chair. I enjoy working as a team with my patients to provide personalized treatment and education so that they can keep confidently smiling for their lifetime. Connecting to my patients on a personal level is my favorite part of my job.

In my spare time, I enjoy the company of my family and friends. I help take care of my grandson whenever I can. Mostly, I enjoy traveling and at times you will find me 90 feet deep in the Caribbean, scuba diving with a camera in hand.

Natalie, Expanded Functions Dental Assistant

Dr. Seuss says it best.  “You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” 

I have always believed that I could steer myself in any direction and do what I felt the most drawn to.  Initially I thought I’d be an art teacher, but dentistry gave me a new avenue to explore my artistic abilities.  I love working with my hands, but I also love working with people, and dentistry allows me to do both.  I love seeing patients who haven’t loved their smile experience a renewed boost in confidence when leaving the office.  William Shakespeare said, “A smile cures the wounding of a frown,” and I believe this wholeheartedly.   When I’m not working with patients, I enjoy spending time with my dog, Stella, traveling with my family, and crafting at home.

Maecy, Dental Assistant

Someone said, “If it scares you, you need to do it.” 

Living by this quote, I’ve found life to be so much more exciting.  Starting in the field of dentistry was definitely scary at first, but I knew that a path in healthcare was right for me.  I have always enjoyed feeling connected to people and building new relationships.  This journey felt right from the beginning! One of my favorite things about dentistry is helping people feel better about their smiles and therefore about themselves!  Watching a person who lacks confidence leave the dental chair with a renewed sense of positive self-esteem makes every day in this field worth it.  

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my dog Archie and my family and friends.  When I can, I also enjoy photographing happy couples and families, playing pickleball and other outdoor activities, traveling, and expressing my creativity.
