Meet Your Experienced
Mount Vernon Dental Team
When you step into our dental office, our friendly front desk team will greet you like an old friend, and after checking you in quickly, one of our hygienists or dental assistants will escort you to the back and help you get settled in right away. Every member of our team is here to give you the smoothest, most stress-free dental experience possible, and we know you’ll appreciate their efforts starting at your first appointment. You can learn a little more about the friendly faces you’ll meet here at Cross Creek Dental Care by reading on below.
Sarah has been a member of our team for over five years now. She earned her dental education from the First Impressions Dental Assisting Program and received her CODA (Certified Ohio Dental Assistant) certification in 2018. What she enjoys most about her job is chatting with and getting to know our patients so well over time!
Originally from Worthington, Sarah and her two very active daughters now live in Mount Vernon. When she isn’t busy keeping our office running smoothly, her favorite hobbies include practicing yoga, running, and spending quality time with loved ones. Here’s an interesting fact about her: her family owned a bakery while she was growing up, so she was basically raised there.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Amanda has been working in dentistry for over two full decades. She is originally from New Concord and completed her education at West Liberty University. Her favorite part of this job is working with such wonderful patients. She also loves flossing!
At home, Amanda is the proud mom of two fantastically expensive sons and an equally expensive and awesome daughter. At this point in life, her three teenage offspring consume the majority of her free time, but she also enjoys keeping up with sports, traveling, eating chicken wings, and indulging in a healthy amount of sarcasm. A few things she doesn’t enjoy include anything watermelon-flavored, being cold, and when people use incorrect punctuation in their texts.
Mary hails from here in Mt Vernon originally, and her oral healthcare career impressively covers over 40 years! She attended dental courses at the Knox County Career Center and is also trained in radiology and CPR. Today, what she enjoys most about her position is being around others and getting to meet new people every single day!
Mary has been married to her best friend Glen for over 20 years. She has two grown children named Andy (a Columbus police officer) and Cassie, as well as two stepchildren and several wonderful grandchildren. Outside of work, she and her husband love working on their flower and vegetable gardens and getting to share the bounty with family and friends. She also watches a variety of sports (GO BUCKS!), regularly goes to Nascar races, cooks, sews, crafts, arranges flowers, and plays with the grandkids whenever she gets the chance.
Registered Dental Hygienist
Kiana was born and raised right here in Ohio! She completed her studies at West Liberty University before undergoing additional training in administering bleaching treatments, applying pit and fissure sealants, and administering local anesthesia. Since joining our team, she has thoroughly enjoyed educating patients on their oral health and helping them achieve a smile they are confident about.
Congratulations are in order since Kiana is a newlywed to her high school sweetheart! Outside of dentistry, her interests include reading, spending time with friends and family, hiking, and being outdoors. Here’s an interesting fact about her: she loves to floss.
Since joining our team in 2021, Ashley has truly enjoyed helping each patient achieve their perfect smile. An Ohio native, it was only natural for her to attend Columbus State and Eastland Career Center for her studies. Now, she is a Dental Assistant with more than four years of experience in the dental field!
Here’s something you may not know about Ashley: she’s a mom of twins! As a family, they enjoy anything outdoors, from live music to days on their boat.
As our Insurance Coordinator, Amy is here to make understanding your benefits a breeze. She entered the dental field more than five years ago, and she completed her studies at both Bradford College and Ohio University.
Amy’s favorite thing to do outside the office is spend time with her three amazing children and two beautiful granddaughters. Some of her other interests include camping, traveling, and boating!
Abby, Dental Assistant
Originally from just outside of Utica, Abby completed her dental training at Assist to Succeed Dental Assisting School. She is certified in CPR and dental radiology (X-rays). What she enjoys most about being on our team is getting to talk with our wonderful patients!
Abby lives in Centerburg with her boyfriend, their dog Brutus, and their four fish. She loves being an aunt to her baby nephew and is excited to be having a niece soon as well! In her free time, Abby likes walking her dog and doing her nails.
