Cathy , RDH
I am a Dental Hygiene graduate of Pensacola State College and have been practicing for over 20 years. I enjoy helping my patients understand the importance of preventing dental disease and contributing to beautiful smiles.
I grew up in the Midwest, but have lived in Florida long enough to appreciate warm weather and beautiful sunsets. I have two daughters. Amy graduated from UF and is living in New York City. Carolyn graduated from FSU and is pursuing a masters degree in nutrition. I am a proud mom.
In my spare time I travel to the beach, read, cook and cycle. I also enjoy relaxing at home with my cat, Spencer.

Lead Dental Assistant
I am the lead dental assistant at our practice and have been working side by side with Dr. Thomas since 2006. I graduated from Americare School of Nursing with an Expanded Functions in dental assisting degree at the top of my class. I love what I do and have a great team of people I work with. Helping the patients understand their dental needs and treatment and seeing the end result is really rewarding.
I have lived in Winter Park for over 20 years. I have one son who is currently serving in the United States Army and I am very proud of him. I am an animal lover and have two dogs. In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with friends, playing softball and going to country music concerts.
Patient Account and Treatment Coordinator
Insurance and finances can be confusing. I am here to help you maintain and maximize your insurance benefits. In addition to filing insurance, I help to coordinate your treatment plan and schedule your appointments.
I am a Florida native and enjoy our beautiful weather as well as gardening, enjoying my four children, husband, three cats and one dog.
